App of the Week: Get Stuff Done With 30/30 Task Timer
The Pomodoro Technique brought us the time management method that uses a timer to break down blocks of work into 25-minute intervals. I use this method on days when I have heaps to get done and need to ramp up my
multitasking single-tasking productivity. With the 30/30 app, I can plan every day into blocks of time.
The beautifully designed 30/30 App is simple to use. Set up a list of tasks, and a length of time for each task. When you start the timer, it will alert you that it’s time to move on to the next task.
You can set the timer for up to three hour intervals, but try sticking to 30 minutes intervals, even up to 90 minutes for more involved projects. We probably don’t need a timer to do three-hour intervals.
The display is minimal with vibrant colors, and the main screen is completely free of buttons. Use simple gestures instead:
Give the 30/30 iPhone or iPad app a try. It’s easy, intuitive, and actually fun to use, and we’ll take all the help we can get when it comes to getting stuff done. Oh, and it’s free!
