Session progress, see and sense it. ๐ŸŒˆ

The bar at the top of your screenโ€”your Lifelineโ€”shows your session progress and daily work rhythm. 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

Take breaks when it suits you. ๐ŸŒด

Short breaks throughout the day boost productivity. Lifeline nudges you to take them, but only when it suits, not at set intervals. When you do pause, Lifeline recommends the ideal break length.

"Really enjoy the timer and its advanced functionalities - it has given me the extra push to really focus on my most important tasks without getting distracted."


"I was looking for an app that would help me visually with timeboxing per se and with Pomodoro sessions. Lifeline does it!"


"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."
