Description

Pomodoro tool is a "helper" for http://www.pomodorotechnique.com/.
Current version includes 25 min timer, 5 min timer and task-pad for a day.
As soon as 25 minute timer elapsed, it's add a mark (a pomodoro) to active task in task-pad, and suggests you to take a break for 5 minutes.

As for me, it helps a lot to concentrate on concrete task, take regular breaks and fill-in time reporting tools.

Usage guide

Clicking on task icon will make this task active and close task pad window.
