Oct 12 2016
Working to fix some issue when the app is crossing the midnight.
In this case the app must be restarted.

Apr 7 2015
Hmm, need to fix the pie-chart, sometimes color is flooding all over the place.
Also the Month Details page has some issue with Chinese characters.

Nov 8 2015
Fixed an issue with the Setup program.
Now the previous version is automatically removed. So you won't need to uninstall before running a Setup.

Oct 18 2015
In the next version 2.0.8
Right-click on a Task > Classify > Set up Categories

Setup your Categories

Define your own Categories and classify your tasks.

Setup your Categories

For example in my case, I use the Red label for bug-fixing activities, the Green for Software Development tasks, and so on. So my ToDoToday list would look like

Setup your Categories

Then, have a look at the list of the Tasks completed within the current month.
A PieChart will display the percentage of each Category.
The work is still in progress, anyway it could look like

Setup your Categories

Scratched Wall skin
I'm looking for new background pictures and new fonts to add to XorTime.
Is there any special background you would like to be implemented? Can you draw one?
What would you suggest?
Write me!

Apr 28 2013
Fixing CSV Export with Chinese characters.
Same fix for 'DoneTask_xxx' files, even though the effect will be available only when a new month starts.

Mar 7 2013
Font Size and some bug fixing, 1.9.1 is in progress!
Fixing some bug that sometimes occur after changing the Font. I took a chance to make a good clean-up and redesign some parts of the code.

I've also added the option to select the font size, it was requested from some users.

Several Estimated pomo scores can now be added in one time.

Another thing I would like to add is the option to set the XorTime working directory, so one can set for instance a dir that is mapped on Google Drive, or Drop-box, ...

July 13 2012
Changing Name! PomoTime will change its name.
The next release will come up with the new name for the app, check this web-site.
Some issue will be fixed, like swapping the row with the UnplannedUrgent causes the scores to be messed up.

May 28 2012
May Release. May release v1.8.4 is delayed.
There are many changes in the lower structures, not all will be visible from now.
Most of the big changes are just a preparation for new features that will be available in the next versions.

Apr 16 2012
Pencil as Caret. In the next v1.8.3 the caret will be a pencil.
The row "Unplanned & Urgent" can be moved up or down.

Mar 12 2012
Scrolling capability. In the next v1.8.1 it will be possible to scroll the PomoTime window.

Nov 3 2011
New skins! It's time to add further background images.
Some people asked for a plain clear background, well I'm adding about 5 skins for the next v1.7.6

Oct 21 2011
Exporting features will be added to the next PomoTime versions.
At first the capability of exporting the ToDoToday page into a .csv format will be implemented.
Later other exporting formats will be added if needed.

Feb 4 2011
Moving and sorting rows.
In the next version some features to move and sort rows will be added.
It will be possible for example to move a task from the Inventory list page
to the To-do-today page.
Or sorting the tasks in order to list the ones still not completed and
then the tasks which are completed.
So, new buttons will be in the upper part of the window.
Among the score buttons, I will add one for the abandoned pomos.
That will allow to add abandoned pomos to a task, and (by right-clicking on it)
remove 'abandoned' scores from a task.

Jan 25 2011
PomoTime can now be downloaded also from SoftPedia site.
It was just awarded to be 100% CLEAN, which means it does not contain
any form of malware, including spyware, viruses, trojans and backdoors.

I'm adding a Forum to the site.
It should deal with Discussions about PomoTime app, Productivity, Procastination, or such.

I'm trying to figure out an easy way to browse and display the previous ToDo Sheets.
A guy whose nickname is 'lff' posted some days ago about this.
He raised the problem that too many clicks are needed to open and display old ToDo Sheets.
I guess this will be a new feature for the very next version.

Sep 16 2010
A further skin with a light pink was added to the last release 1.7.0.
Moreover the yellow skin - the Classic one - was slightly modified.
I increased the saturation of the colors because I noticed on some monitors
the yellow became a sort of sad pale brown. I hope now it's better, the yellow
is brilliant and the visibility of what is written on the Todo sheet is clean.
Maybe more available skins would be nice for the app.

Aug 12 2010
I'm adding a new way to cancel the scores accidentally added.
To tell the truth it is already possible to cancel scores, you just have
to right-click with your mouse, then 'Select Score..', then you select
the kind of score you wish to cancel for that row.
Luis (lff) suggested to cancel scores by right-clicking on the same buttons
that add a score.

Jul 22 2010
It's time to support fonts like Chinese, Japanese, Cyrillic,..
I'm almost writing back again the whole application, this work will take a long time.

Mar 12 2010 - 22:42
Many people are asking the window to be resizable.
Well, I'm working on that. The next version will be resizable.

Mar 2 2010 - 21:07
Someone is experiencing some problem with the small Timer window.
They reported the window is not displayed.

In this case do as follows.

1 - close your PomoTime app

2 - access the Registry at
Look at the right pane.
Double-click on 'tmrwndx', set the value 0, press OK
double-click on 'tmrwndy', set the value 0, press OK.

3 - Restart PomoTime

Now the timer window should appear in the upper left-corner of the window (and is draggable where you like).

I added some basic Copy/Cut/Paste capability.
This is a first implementation, it is not possible to select the text with your mouse.
For example, if you want to copy a task description from your ActivityInventory page and paste it to the ToDo sheet, do the following 2 steps:
Step 1 - go to the ActivityInventory page, just click on the line to be copied - please note, you DON'T HAVE TO SELECT the line - and then press 'Control+C' (or use the 'Copy' button).
That will copy the whole line of text.
Step 2 - Then go to the ToDo sheet, click with your mouse where you like to paste the text and press 'Control-V' (or use the 'Paste' button).

Jan 26 2010 - 21:26
I received several requests to add copy/paste capability.
I agree it is an important feature, in order to manage text in an easier way.
Expecially to move tasks from the Activity Inventory toward the Todo Today Sheet.
I think some improvements are also necessary to make PomoTime more user-friendly.
Almost any action is accessible by the right-click popup menu, and that's not so fine.
New buttons should be added on the window, for instance one to cancel the last score on the current task.
Ooops, it's snowing...

Jan 10 2010 - 22:24
I'm adding new lines to the To-do Sheet. Many people asked me about that.
So, in the next v1.4.0 12 rows for planned tasks and 12 rows for unplanned ones.
The window is becoming bigger, but as the timer starts (F5 key) you can minimize the window by pressing 'Escape' key.
So only the minutes left are displayed in an always-on-top window of 1 inch length.

I'm working to add Chinese, Japanese font capabilities to PomoTime.
At the moment you can use English and non-English keyboards like German, French, Italian, Russian(?), Finnish, but not East or Arab keyboards.
So people using Chinese fonts on their PC, or Japanese or Corean should be able to use PomoTime with their mothertongue language.
Anyway this work is at its beginning stage. I don't know if it will be done for the next release 1.4.0 or the next one.

I'm discovering that during my rest time between a pomodoro with the next one I'm keen to follow too many time-wasting distractions. It's important to take a break but it should only take a couple of minutes or more.
I'm getting the habit of having too long breaks.
In my last break I started surfing the web and I took more than half an hour to go back to my scheduled tasks!
PomoTime should discipline the pauses between pomodoros. Better if after - say 4 pomodoros - a longer break would be suggested and counted.

Dec 11 2009 - 19:24
Well, version 1.3.0 was just released!

I'm working now to have a Timer count-down more visible.
When the Timer starts it is displayed out of the PomoTime window.
You can drag and drop it anywhere on your screen.
It is ALWAYS on top, so I decided to give it some transparency,
in order to be always visible, but not too intrusive.
I'm still testing it in a debug version.
I can say I find it really confortable,
with a quick glance you know the minutes left.

What do you think?

Wish to tell your opinion?
Do you think another feature would be more important to develop?
