This app had great potential. Sad to see it's discontinued. Wonder why, because download and usage numbers look rather good. Any desktop app that can replace this? It's a bit annoying on 10.8 with no Growl2 support.

Finally a new version appeared. It looks like the app has new maintainer. Look for "Pomodoro" in the App Store. The developer's website is http://martakostova.github.io/pomodoro/ Enjoy!

I really love this app! Even though it has been discontinued, I'm still using it on Mountain Lion. It really does everything I need perfectly. Some highlights (other developers take note!): - Global shortcuts for everything - Assign scripts to events (start, end a pomodoro, etc.) - Export statistics - Autofill pomodoro objective from Things (or OmniFocus) I just hope it will continue to work on Mavericks.

Great app. But development has not continued since Dec 2011 from what I can see on GitHub. Also currently Growl is not correctly recognized (that is with Growl 1.3 and 1.4) and also setting for Growl messages to stay on screen are ignored. Ticket for the Grown issue is here: https://github.com/ugol/pomodoro/issues/249 Would love to see continued development for this. Also now that it is on the MAS and they Ugol charges for it, it would be nice towards users to enhance Pomodoro.

Great app! Highly customizable and very well thought. It has a surprising number of features (text to speech integration, interruption support, etc.). Everything can be customized and you can even integrate AppleScript if you're a crazy hardcore programmer.

I had freezing issues after a long time with no problems. Tracked it down to using an external USB sound module with my Macbook Pro instead of the built in sound card. I switched of all audio alerts and speech and the freezing stopped happening. If you have a similar issue I think you may be able to use a utility called SoundFlower to reroute the audio to another sound module. I just switched all audio off and decided to make do with Growl notifications instead.

I really like this app. It took me a while to make pomodoro technique work for me. I find 25 mins of work and 5 mins breaks far too long. I tried longer, since my billing timers usually end up around 45-55 mins per task, but really, pomodoro works for me at 10 mins work + 1 min break! So, experiment and see what works for you.

This is a nice little app. My only gripe is no pasting ability in the description HUD. Are there any plans to implement pasting? And thanks for providing the app free of charge.
