Stay focused and on task.
Every. Single. Session.

Session progress, see and sense it.

The bar at the top of your screen—your Lifeline—gives real-time feedback on your progress. Here's a fan: "The concept of seeing the time as a line during the day is mind-blowing. So simple, yet so useful."

Lifeline's visual progress bar

Breaks on your schedule, not your timer's.

Other apps force you to stop when time’s up. Not Lifeline. Flexible session lengths keep you going when you’re flowing. When you do pause, Lifeline recommends the ideal break time.

"It's a great tool. I like how it just works even with me being passive about it. Seeing progress just from doing what I do encourages me to try a bit harder."

Let me hear it for time-tracking... 🤮

Blend time-tracking into your workflow instead of doing it at the end of the month. Or never. Track tasks, projects, and areas with session labels and emojis. You might, possibly, enjoy it.

#2manymeetings? Find out, automatically

We can't make meetings fun (yet), but at least timing them is easy now. Lifeline starts and stops virtual meetings automatically. It shows how much time's left and when you're going over time.
