3) Promodoro
4) It's Pomodoro Time - (iPad version)

6) Simple Pomodoro Timer - (iPad version)

So what exactly is The Pomodoro Technique?

The Pomodoro Technique is a time management method developed by Francesco Cirillo in the late 1980s. The technique uses a timer to break down periods of work into 25-minute intervals called 'Pomodoros' (from the Italian word for 'tomatoes') separated by breaks. Closely related to concepts such as timeboxing and iterative and incremental development used in software design, the method has been adopted in pair programming contexts. The method is based on the idea that frequent breaks can improve mental agility.

There are five basic steps to implementing the technique:
1.decide on the task to be done
2.set the pomodoro (timer) to 25 minutes on the task until the timer rings; record with an x
4.take a short break (5 minutes)
5.every four "pomodoros" take a longer break (15–20 minutes)

May be you should try Pomodoro Do. It's a full function Pomodoro timer and bundled with a task-list. You can also get some achievements in the app, by which you can insist Pomodoro Tech. I feel it's quite good one! Have a try : )

I would like to share another Pomodoro app for iPhone (Disclaimer: I'm one of the developers). It's just 1.99 and we think we've put out the best UI out there! You can get it at Pomodoro Timer: Focus on your productivity Hope you like it!
