Tomatoid started as personal project in late 2013.
I couldn’t find any online pomodoro timer that would fit my needs, so I decided to build my own.
It took me a whole f*cking year! The first version was finally released in late 2014.
At the time, it was still just a pomodoro timer. However, I started to need the classic (stopwatch) time tracking pretty soon because sometimes you just have to do a bunch of small tasks and you can’t really use the pomodoro technique. That’s how the classic timer was added.
With both classic and pomodoro timer, I was able to track all my time in my new app.
I was, however, frequently switching from Tomatoid to other task management app(s) and checking my todos, checklists and inboxes. That’s how the todos section was born.
That’s pretty much it!
Tomatoid also contains a lot of other features necessary for freelancing:
- History with advanced filter
- Reporting with the ability to export as pdf, excel, openoffice or csv file
- Weekly and monthly overview
- iCal feed
- Toggl & Trello integration
- Client management
- … and some other stuff
Why use Tomatoid?
Because I am both author and user. I personally use and test it daily. Everything is in one place. Also, if you encounter any problem, you know exactly who to contact.
