Preparing a paid version of Pomodroid

P

After many days of reasoning about the future of Pomodroid, the (actually) free/open Android application for managing tasks under the Pomodoro Technique, I decided that I will develop two separate versions, one remaining free/open for those just wanting simple functionalities (e.g., no remote fetching of tickets) and a new version that will be called Pomodroid Pro, containing all the extra functionalities that people will want to have. The Pro version will be paid at a price between 1 and 3 Euros (still have to decide).

Meanwhile, I am developing a new functionality of Pomodroid that will let people have the program stay in background for working with the Android device while a Pomodoro is running. Moreover, I am planning about further simplifying the user interface and designing it for a more pleasant experience.

Please let me know about your thoughts by contacting me or by posting a comment here or in the official page of the project
