Win a Copy of Tadam!

We’ve just closed our giveaway, and our lucky winners are Joel, Richard, Marc, Paul, and Noah!

If you read Mac.AppStorm yesterday, you likely saw Pedro’s review of Tadam, a new minimal tool staying productive with the Pomodoro method. It’s a simple little menubar app that helps you time your work and breaks, elegantly.

Tadam is a rather cheap utility, at just $3.99, but we’ve got something better: 5 free copies of Tadam to giveaway to our readers. Just enter a comment below and let us know what other Pomodoro method apps, if any, that you’ve used before. You can also share the giveaway on Twitter, Facebook, or App.net, and share the link to your post in a new comment for an extra entry.

Hurry and get your entry in; we’ll close the giveaway a week from now on Wednesday, February 27th.

Envato staff or those who have written more than two articles or tutorials for AppStorm are ineligible to enter.

    Pomodorable. It’s a bit more heavy weight but I like how it integrates with your task manager (Omnifocus). Has had a bug they haven’t fixed for a long time now though that complains Omnifocus is not installed or in the default locaton when it certainly is. Seems abandoned. This looks very minimalistic and promising.

  • Mike G

    Would love to give it a go.

  • Peter

    I used for a long time Focus Booster. Started with it on Windows and works on mac too.

  • Omar

    Producteev!

  • Nilean

    I have been using Tomighty for a long time and it was quite easy to work with. I liked it’s simplicity and later I tried similar softwares like RescueTime which was based on the same system of timing. Both softwares were free and helped a lot to have a better concentration & focus on subjects I was working on.

  • Gus Arreola

    Focus Booster

  • http://iamkohout.cz David

    Never heard of Pomodoro method, but I’d like to try it – with this app maybe.

  • Noah Carter

    I’ve tried focus booster but this looks better.

  • Nicola

    never used an app, but I would really wanna try!

  • http://www.redbrand.com.mx Gus Arreola

    Well, I had been using the Pomodoro App for both my iPhone as MacBook Pro, but since I saw this app I fell for her and I love to use power.

  • Andrea

    Never heard before. Let’s try it

  • Shawn

    I’ve used other Pomodoro applications before, and most are just too complicated. Tadam seems perfect for my workflow, making it easy to set a timer and get straight back to work.

  • ced

    I’ve been using pomodairo

  • David

    I’ve never used anything like this! Looks super cool!

  • Ralph M

    Never used a Pomodoro method, but I want to try it – and Tadam seems to be the nice app.

  • Gustavo Bucker

    I’ve used pomodori! It’s a good app, but not very user friendly.

  • Gustavo Bucker
  • wassal

    i get Gemini for free

    I need this one too

  • http://rene-henrich.de René Henrich

    I don’t have an app to keep track of the time I spend on my work, that’s why I want it!

  • Commandor

    I only know about tadam, from appstorm.
    Hope I could get one, thanks in advance.

  • Sean

    I’ve never used one before but I’ve been meaning to try the method for ages. This app would no doubt be a fantastic place to start.

  • Hélio Correia

    I know teaTimer(http://www.joshjacob.com/mac-development/teatimer.php) but no i dont like it
    I really need a Tadam to improve my work

  • Shane
  • Ngoc Pham

    I used Pomodoro app (http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/31472/pomodoro), the free version though, before but now I feel a bit expensive for similar app out there. It’s great if I can get one free copy of Tadam. Thanks! :)

  • http://caneco.me Vitor Caneco

    Pomodoro maybe with Tadam… The other apps make it so hard do use them.

  • http://www.bradwalker.org Brad Walker

    I’ve always intended to try the Pomodoro method, this seems like the best place to start.

  • deadtokyo

    I love Focus Booster. I also love Tomato Timer, a useful webapp for keeping track of your time. :D

  • steve flato

    haven’t used any other Pomodoro apps, but this looks really promising. i’d love to check it out.

  • http://wijou.com Kareem el Buckley

    I haven’t used any Pomodoro method app before. But I do see now how it could be useful.

  • fireup

    I m using Pomodorable!Love it!

  • Chan

    Breaktime is pretty good.

  • gustao

    I used the Pomodoro app, but it has been discontinued… For now, I use the iphone app called Promodoro!

    Would love try Tadam!

  • Christopher

    I use the iOS App “30/30″ to integrate the Pomodoro method into my life. It works good so far, but the fact that I use one device (iPhone) for the time tracking and working on a Macbook is a bit upsetting.

  • micrornas

    I used ‘Promodoro’ for iphone but I now want to try desktop based one such as Tadam!

  • Costee

    I’ve never tried anything like this before.

  • Marty Schellman

    Never knew about “Pomodoro”. Rather thought it to be some kind of fruit.
    But I’d love to try.

    So count me in! :-)

  • http://www.500px.com/tabledrummer Tom

    I’ve been using Pomodorable for a long time but it’s a bit too much. I really love the design of Tadam.

  • GlaucidiumGnoma

    I’ve used dueapp in the past, though a dedicated program would make the technique easier to commit to.

  • GlaucidiumGnoma
  • Marc Simons

    I used to use an app called Pomodoro by iUgol. But it was pulled from MAS. I asked the developer last summer. He said he would put it back after a while. But I can never find it. I feel scammed.

  • Jul

    This would be my first Pomodoro Method App. I’m would love to give it a shot!

  • Michelle

    Have simply used the timer on my phone, but have always wished I could have some warning and built-in breaks. This (elegant) app provides both. Lovely.

  • Michelle

    Besides the fact that it as been discontinued, I still use Pomodoro.app and it does the job well enough for me.
