OpenPomo

O

This project is no longer maintained. I would be happy if someone else takes control of the project.


Introduction

OpenPomo is a family of Android applications that implement the Pomodoro Technique. They let you define your own tasks with deadlines, priorities. Some OpenPomo versions also remotely retrieve tasks from various services. OpenPomo is derived from its old father – Pomodroid – that was a single Android application written for a University course.

How are OpenPomo Apps different from all other Pomodoro-based timers? They all are opensource software. This means that, if you want to modify some parts of your OpenPomo program, you just have to grab the source code and tweak it to suit your needs. All the source codes are available for free, while some OpenPomo Apps on the market are available for a (very) small fee in order to support the development.

About the Pomodoro Technique

The Pomodoro Technique is a time management method that can be used for any kind of task. For many people, time is an enemy. The anxiety triggered by “the ticking clock”, especially when a deadline is involved, leads to ineffective work and study habits which in turn lead to procrastination. The aim of the Pomodoro Technique is to use time as a valuable ally in accomplishing what we want to do in the way we want to do it, and to enable us to continually improve the way we work or study.

The Technique is heavily explained on a 60+ pages book published on the website. Please visit the official website for more explanations.
