About 30/30

30/30 app is a must-have time-management app that will help you organize and utilize your time in a more effective way.

Teacher Review

30/30 is a task management app that can best be described as simple, attractive and useful. The app is built around the '30/30 work cycle' concept, which advocates a balanced approach to performance. 30/30 refers to alternating between work and rest in 30-minute increments.

The 30/30 method is based on the theory that productivity and creativity increase when one is intensely focused on a project for short amounts of time and in small chunks. In addition to functioning as a "reward," the break allows the student's mind to refresh. The 30/30 app is especially helpful for users who struggle with time management.

30/30 displays a circular timer that tracks the current task's time. Users can set up tasks by scrolling down on the screen, double-clicking to edit the rectangles that correlate to new tasks, swiping to delete, or dragging to change the order of tasks. They can add or subtract a minute by clicking the +1m or -1m icons around the top circle as necessary. The counter displays the time remaining, the icon that correlates with the task, and an icon to "check" the task as completed before time runs out. Each time a new task begins, the background changes color. Each task list can be shared via iCloud or email by clicking the settings gear.

Kids can learn important time-management skills, including how to prioritize. With 30/30 kids can break down long periods of time into smaller blocks with specific tasks. The timer encourages kids to build in leisure time, teaching them the importance of balancing work and fun. 30/30 helps reinforce planning, time-estimation, and self-monitoring strategies.

Publisher's Description

You have never experienced a task manager like this!

Simple. Attractive. Useful. 30/30 helps you get stuff done!

You set up a list of tasks, and a length of time for each of them. When you start the timer, it will tell you when to move on to the next task.

The task list is controlled entirely with gestures; a simple and natural way to use the app.

The display is minimal but attractive and it still shows you everything you need to know:
- What am I supposed to be doing right now?
- How much time do I have left to do it?

Multiple lists, syncing over iCloud, and smart time functions are just some of the features!
