      "I need so much help with my time management skills, seriously. I wanted to find some alternatives to Pomodoro for Mac, something I could use from just about anywhere. PomoDoneApp is what I wound up with, and they have helped me SO much. It's super easy to use. I got started in just a couple of minutes. I didn't have to spend much time setting things up in a clunky confusing interface, and oh! I can use it right in my browser. I'm a time tracking rock star now! I love this app so much, and I've become so much more productive since finding it."
