番茄时钟很好,功能该灵活的灵活,改严格的严格,真心不错。 另外希望增加一个统计总完成时间或者总完成数量的功能,这样有强烈的反馈的话,就可以大大增加用户心理成就感,而且还可以提高用户粘性。

很好的自我管理工具

I like that you can block websites however this is really not perfect. Example of an scenario. I want to block youtube.com I want to allow music.youtube.com If youtube.com is on the blocklist, then you also block my music, which I is bonkers. It will simply not allow the website, unlike something like Forest which will just allow it to play in the background, but just not let me change things. It would definitely increase the number of stars to 4 or 5.
