30/30 App

30/30 FREE

30/30 is a task management 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 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 or ADHD.
