This application is a real time saver!

Thank you developer, that you did not make it a menubar app!
The counter should always be visible; that's one of the ideas behind the Pomodoro technique (do google it!)
A lot of programs hide the menubar, but Focus Booster is still there…

Suggestion:
When you need to see the whole screen, e.g. when you're working on graphics, it should be possible to temporarily hide the FB window with a key combo. (Only while the keys are being pressed…) And how about making it transparent on mouseover?

Nice concept but the app is very intrusive. It could be smaller, configurable to be either vertical or horizontal, and could even be in the menu bar (as Menubar Countdown), where you can easily see how the tomato goes from green to ripe.

Hi, thanks for your comments. There are definitely some good suggestions. We'll take a look at some of those for inclusion in a future release.

Still unable to change the rest time. Example: Can anyone change the work time to 26 min and the rest time to 4 min and save this change?
