I am constantly building something new around Tomatoid, mainly from your feedback. That’s the reason for these two June updates.
More alarm sounds
The default alarm sound was too loud or too sharp for some of you. That’s the reason why I’ve added few more sounds to pick from.
Just navigate to the settings section, pick some sound and hit the example button to test it. If you are happy, save it.
12/24 hours format
A lot of Tomatoid users are from the US and it was unfair that they could not switch from 24h format to 12h format. That is fixed now, you can switch the displayed format in the settings section.
Don’t worry, the new task and edit task forms accept both time formats aswell.
Announcing the new “To-Dos” feature. Track your time and your unfinished tasks in one place for better effectivity.
TL;DR: There is a new to-do section on Tomatoid, available for everyone.
Just add new to-do with a name, that’s it. Additionally, every to-do can also contain:
- Due date
- Project (for premium users)
- Client (for premium users)
- Tags (for premium users)
Every to-do is then cleverly categorized to one of the left-sided folders.

Forgot to start the timer? Studied in the park? Worked outside?
No problem! Just open the timer or pomodoro and use the new add task feature.
This works for both timers (classic or Pomodoro).
Add new task directly from the timer interface
Insert new task from the history block
The “new task” popup
Don’t feel like doing Pomodoro(s) today but still need to keep track of your precious time?
Well, good news! There is a new feature available to everyone. The classic, stopwatch-like, timer.
You can access it from the top menu or the Pomodoro timer interface. See the picture for better image.
Currently supported features for the classic timer:
- Start/pause counting
- Finish/interrupt task
- Reset task
- Set alarm to play every X minutes
- Add comments
- Rename task
- Add/change project, client, tags
Every task created using the classic timer will show up in the history – exactly like Pomodoro tasks. You can edit/delete them later as you are used to.
Check out the classic timer
Please report any bugs/problems with the new timer via the feedback form. Thank you.
Almost there! Lots of cool stuff is waiting at the door

Heads up, tablet and smartphone users! I have added another tiny but useful feature for everyone.
If you like your work space nice and clean (and you should, because you practice the Pomodoro technique), you can now make even better.
Press the “Less options” button to hide extended task options and the “More options” to make it visible again.
Check out the interface difference on these pictures. Read more »
In theory, you should not be disturbed after you start your Pomodoro session. Sometimes, however, this is not so easy to accomplish.
This was the most requested feature from your feedback. And it was actually one of the hardest to implement because I did not think of this function a few years ago, when the first version of Tomatoid came out.
How to use it? Simple! After you start the task (green button), it will automatically change itself to pause button. And that’s pretty much it.
This it still pretty new feature. So, if you encounter any problems or bugs, please let me know immediately so I can fix them. Read more »
Heads up! We have some news to tell you.
We have a blog now. Obliviously.
Whenever we publish a new feature or fix some bug, we will post it here first. It will also contain any other Pomodoro related news 🙂
So, if you wanna stay up to date, keep an eye on the blog homepage.
