May 2, 2023

Lifeline 1.6.2 is now available in the macOS App Store.

Lifeline 1.6.2 is now available in the macOS App Store, bringing you the following updates:

Ticking clock sound for Pomodoro fans. Activate them under Preferences > Soundsfor an authentic Pomodoro experience.

🌴 A refreshed break screen awaits. Say goodbye to the palm trees and enjoy a new visual during your breaks.

Easier snoozing for auto-launch. Press the little X for a more intuitive and convenient snooze.

We've also resolved a few minor issues, such as:

  • Restoring the "right-click taskbar icon to start session" functionality in Preferences.
  • Correcting the default session length display for free users.

Upcoming: Instant auto-launch sessions restored

We've heard your feedback on auto-launch since version 1.6.

Several people reached out to say auto-launch doesn’t instantly start a session anymore but instead brings up the session launch panel.

We’re working on fixing this, but it has a few UX consequences we’re working through now. I expect we’ll have this sorted in the next update, 1.6.3.

For now, we hope the 1.6.2 update brings you more focus and enjoyable breaks. As always, feel free to share your thoughts, questions, and ideas with us. We love hearing from you by email or on Twitter.
