Workflow Timer is a time management tool designed to improve your focus on tasks that need to be done in a given amount of time. The method it uses seems to resemble the Pomodoro technique, as the app smartly alternates work sessions with break times for relaxation.

The program's interface has a clean and bright appearance. Though intended to be easy to use, I find it rather difficult to manage, mainly because most settings can't be enabled unless you buy the pro version. This way, the duration of the work sessions and the break times can't be tailored. The timer for the work session ends at 25 minutes - then you are forced to take a 5-minute break. After four work sessions, you benefit from a long break with a predefined duration of 15 minutes. However, you can stop the timer at any moment and resume it later. The countdown has an icon-like representation in the menu bar, so you can know at any moment how much time you have until the end of a session.

In short, Workflow Timer is a simple tool for efficient time managing. The program forces you to solve one task at a time by limiting distractions during the work sessions and granting rest moments for relaxation.
