I'm a fan of the Pomodoro technique. I previously used KanbanFlow before I found Sandglaz, and it incorporated a Pomodoro timer in it's interface. I found it very helpful. I can get an app for my iPhone, however I would like if it was integrated into Sandglaz.

Just wanted to add in response to the @founders question:
If you're doing "true" pomodoro then the 25 minute timer is for a single task. Each task is essentially atomic - the goal is to work on the task for the full 25 minutes without interruption. There's more to it than just the timer (tracking completed pomodoros vs interrupted pomodoros so you can estimate better, rules/guidelines around handling interruptions etc) but most other implementations I've seen ignore pretty much all of this and just stick a simple timer on - which is a shame as the timer part is the least of what makes the pomodoro technique useful.

I've seen integrations that would have the timer tied to each task. Currently Pomodone works with a variety of task planners (Evernote, Trello, Basecamp ...etc). KanbanFlow's built in timer also ties to the tasks. That would be very helpful.

I have a question about this. How would you use the timer? Would it be tied to each task?
