How to turn TickTick into a convenient Pomodoro timer

TickTick Pomo Timer Start on iPhone

If you haven’t heard of TickTick, this handy app helps you manage your tasks. Keep lists, add your to-dos, and be reminded so you never forget a task.

In addition to managing to-dos, TickTick offers a built-in Pomodoro timer. For managing your time, the Pomodoro method has you break down your work into intervals. Normally, you set the timer and work for 25 minutes, take a break, and then work for another 25 minutes. While the durations of work and breaks can be adjusted, the general idea is the same.

So, let’s take a look at how you can use TickTick as a Pomodoro timer.

The TickTick Pomo Timer on iPhone or iPad

If you use TickTick on your mobile device, it’s easy to set and use the timer.

1) Open the TickTick app on your device and tap Pomo at the bottom for iPhone or on the left for iPad.

2) On the Good Day screen tap Start.

This starts the timer immediately.

You have a few options for adjusting the sound, opening your current day’s tasks, and minimizing the timer, each with a tap.

You can also change the overall settings for the Pomo Timer.

1) Tap Settings at the bottom for iPhone or on the left for iPad.

2) Tap Pomo Timer.

Here you can enter your Daily Pomo Goals and select durations for the default timer, short breaks, and long breaks. You can also enable automatic start of the timer, lights on, and focus mode.
