In sum, the app is an “unobtrusive task planner with a built-in timer” that helps users get things done by breaking up individual tasks among discrete intervals; the intervals are then separated by short breaks.  According to the app’s description, this is a “surprisingly effective way to retain motivation and focus.”  Not only does it help users stay on task, but it also allows them to track their progress and gain new insights about their workflow.

One neat feature about this particular app is that it syncs between all Apple devices – iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, and Macs – so you can use it whenever, wherever!  (Please note for it to sync with a Mac, you must first purchase the Pro version available on the Mac App Store.)
