This morning Pomodorable, a new task management and productivity app from Monocle Society, hit the Mac App Store. Pomodorable relies on the Pomodoro technique, a method of accomplishing things on your task list by using a 25-minute timer and focusing on one item exclusively during that timeframe, while also logging distractions.
The nice thing about Pomodorable is how versatile the software is. You can use it exclusively as your task management (and time management) app, but if you're already using an alternative task manager like iCloud Reminders, OmniFocus, or Things, then you can continue using those apps to manage your tasks and Pomodorable will two-way sync between them. This way, you don't need to change how you do things, while still taking advantage of Pomodorable's powerful time features.
For parents who can’t get their kids away from the electronics, the Screen Time Manager will set a daily or weekly limit and “no-use” time segments where they will not be able to use the TV, computer, video game or other electronic device. Each child is given his/her own PIN number for access and it works 24/7, in case the kidlets try to pull one over on you when you are out. When time is up, the device shuts down. Set up is simple and is good for 6 users. At a size of 4 1/2 x 71/2 x 3 3/4-inches, the time manager is priced at $89.95.
