I like this app but I'm getting an error message and can't open it. I deleted it and re downloaded and it worked for a little while and now the error is back. I'm on windows 10.

if you would share the error message, i can look into it. 

I fixed it by changing the save location when I downloaded a third time. Thank you for responding!


Cool but with limited use. I like it but since there are only set time limits like 5, 10, 15, or 20 minutes for setting stuff like breaks I don't see myself using this.

A good idea might be to allow custom times with an input field.

Excellent app! My only criticism is that the to-do list resets every time I close the app, though weirdly the checks stay the same, so I have to rewrite it all every time I turn off my computer. Another friend mentioned not being able to mute the music while on a break, but that's more of a nitpick. Thank you!

question, are you on the latest version (1,01) of the app?  that should fix the issue.


Thank you, I'll do that!

Very cute and helpful. It was very simple and self explanatory. The only thing that I would suggest is in the "take a break" mode that the liquid inside the cup acts as a timer. Like it goes in a circle and pieces of the circle disappear as time goes on. I was very confused because I assumed that would happen and then, aside from the text countdown, I had no idea what the time was.

hello, could you explain a bit more about what you mean by it goes in a circle and pieces of the circle disappear?? i'm trying to figure it out so i can see if i can implement it, but my brain isn't working well.

Sorry, I wasn't very clear


oh, thank you for this image! i don't know if it's something i can do but i'm going to look into it.

Cool, thanks!


thank you for the idea! i've implemented it into the latest version.
