  1. pop-up window when time ends

    why don`t you put something like pop-up option, when time of one sessions ends? Sometimes it`s hard to notice, that session has finished. Pop-up window would help a lot.

    • Long Break Option

      Though I enjoy the automatic shift between Pomodoros and breaks, I would like to be able to specify if I want a long break after the current Pomodoro.

      • Android App

        I am often listening to music on my android and I miss the notifications for the desktop app. An Android app would be great

          • add multiple notification sounds *thanks

            The current notification sound is only one. It may be work for some, may be not for others. It'd be really nice if there are multiple notification sounds, and the ability to choose which one we'd like to hear at the very end of every session/break.

            Thanks.

            • tell me what I am focusing on?

              The simplicity of this program is a huge assist, but the point is to give me visual and audio cues to focus on that which I can accomplish in 25 minutes. Without an equally simple way to display that task, and thus quickly judge at the end of the 25 whether I've accomplished it, I'm going to be constantly harking back to what the heck it is I was supposed to be doing. If the point is to focus on the incremental tasks at hand and forget the whole momentarily, I'm not going to be doing this unless I open…

                • Display the time left on the task bar

                  While the pomodoro/break are running, display the time left on the application task bar instead of the application name, like in pomodairo, so you don't have to switch to the application to see the time-left.

                  Would be cool also if the time left could be shown on the systray when hovering the application icon.

                  • Simple Log

                    It will be great to have a simple log file w/ focus booster activity.. like this:

                    [datetime] session n1 starts
                    [datetime] session n1 ends
                    [datetime] break n2 starts..
                    [datetime] user resets position
                    [datetime] app close

                    etc..

                    • The ability to adjust the ticking volume as well as the alarm volume.

                      I work with audio files at the office and right now the ticking sound is too loud for me. I still need the ticking sound so I can focus on the task with a bit of anxiety and tension.

                      • it should always live in the system tray

                        this is a lightweight program -- basically a "widget" -- it is not a full blown program like Photoshop or Word.. therefore it should *always* live in the system tray -- never the taskbar -- regardless of whether it is minimized or not.. that would make it "unobtrusive"

                        • add some actions when the app is reduced in the tray

                          It would be great to be able to start and stop the counter from the tray without expanding the app.
                          Also can you add the number of minutes remaining on the icon (and perhaps make the number blink during the last minute).

                          • Allow for collapsing vertically

                            Any method of greatly reducing the height (similar to winamp), so I can keep it on top of other windows without obstructing anything. The tray thing is OK, but I prefer the horizontal view.

                                    • Support theming or just alternate colors

                                      I like to type with screen colors inverted--white text on a black background in full screen Word. If Focus Booster could be turned white, then while inverted it would be much less inconspicuous on my screen.

                                      • Option to disable monitor shut down and screensaver

                                        Add an option to disable the monitor shut down and the screensaver when the program is running. It's annoying when the monitorn turns off automatically and you have to move the mouse to see your time left.

                                        • Add the option to enable soft screen flashing with customized colors

                                          Sometimes the FocusBoosterApp's beeping sounds could annoy students or coworkers. Sometimes users do not have a sound system enabled on their PC or laptop to benefit the use of the audio part of the timer. Sometimes a Deaf person like me would want to use FocusBoosterApp but will not be able to hear the timer go off at the end of 25 minutes. Please add the option to enable customized soft/colored screen flashing feature in this app! Thanks!
