I think I check new apps for productivity every month. I get sucked into a Google and App Store black hole that it’s actually counterproductive. LELZ. But at least once in a while, I get to discover some gems.
I’ve been using this app called Tide and my productivity has been on fire. It uses The Pomodoro Technique but with white noise to keep you even more focused. If you enjoy using Coffitivity like I do, I think you should give this app a shot.
It’s totally free! You can choose different sounds from forest to café — whatever works best for you. It also comes with an “immerse mode” so if you exit the app to check Twitter or another distraction, it automatically stops the 25-minute focus timer and your focus reports will *gasp* be affected.
The downside is that it’s only available on the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. No desktop or Android version.
So to all my iOS-powered, easily-distracted brothers and sisters…. You’re welcome. For the rest of you, just use Pomodoro Time and Coffitivity COS IT’S PRACTICALLY THE SAME THING. Did I just waste my time raving about this app??? UGH. HAVE A PRODUCTIVE WEEKDAY TO US ALL!!!
