Mac/iOS: We love the Pomodoro technique for productivity and while one of the big benefits is that you don't need a ton of technology to use it, that doesn't mean some tech is not useful. FocusList is a small, but useful set of apps of that helps you plan out your day with Pomodoro in mind. FocusList comes in both a Mac and iPhone flavour and the premise is super simple. Start your day by listing out what you need to do in the day and select an increment of time you'd like to dedicate to that task. When you're all ready to work, just tap the "Start Working" button and FocusList will start a 25 minute Pomodoro timer for you for the selected task. FocusList also functions as a basic time tracker so you can keep an eye on when and how you get your work done over time. The Mac and iPhone apps sync together if you want, but both are totally useable as standalone apps if you tend to do your work on one device more than another.
