You have never experienced a task manager like this!

Simple. Attractive. Useful. 30/30 helps you get stuff done!

You set up a list of tasks, and a length of time for each of them. When you start the timer, it will tell you when to move on to the next task.

That’s it!

The task list is controlled entirely with gestures; a simple and natural way to use the app.

The display is minimal but attractive and it still shows you everything you need to know:
- What am I supposed to be doing right now?
- How much time do I have left to do it?

Multiple lists, syncing over iCloud, and smart time functions are just some of the features!

** What Some Users Are Saying **
- “Best-of-class process timer”
- “My grades have actually improved since I started using this.”
- “So good that I decided to not write my own”
- “I've been able to reduce my [ADHD] medication with this app, and my life has become so much less stressful as a result.”
- “30/30 App-teach kids about planning, time estimation, self-monitoring, and social behaviors.”

Pix Bug on 5/13/2018
I’ve officially deleted all time management apps and just use this one. It keeps me on task as I try to either beat the clock or rearrange tasks for a more efficient day. One thing I’d highly recommend is the option to schedule an appointment to a certain time slot so that I can determine how much time I have left to perform other tasks before and after the said scheduled appointment. Please please developers..make it happen! 🤗 thank you for such a great app!
Ooo! My...
GermanVoodooo on 5/4/2018
It's really work, I so gratitude for this app (5 stars)
Best way to get productive
DariusTwin on 4/23/2018
One of the few apps I use on a daily basis. One of the best time based productivity apps out there. It’s simple interface and usability makes it easy to customize to what I need to be productive.
Apple Watch
mommy2shoes on 4/3/2018
Please bring Apple Watch functionality to this :-) I’ve used this app occasionally over the years… But because I get distracted so easily by my phone and I don’t use my iPad is often I don’t use it as much as I know that it could be useful. My hopes are that my Apple Watch will help me stay on task and I believe 30/30 and all of its functionality is the way to do it
Absolutely the best!
Zwerlie on 3/31/2018
This is such a great app. It is absolutely my favorite way to keep track of time for projects throughout the day and keep me moving along. I would recommend who has the need for a pomodoro style timer. But better than pomodoro, you can actually set the exact amount time you want to work on each project. The interface is just beautiful. I always love this app. The developers have done a wonderful job and they keep it updated so that it works.
emg-lizzy on 3/2/2018
With the advent of the Apple Watch, I’ve stopped using this app as it does not show up as a Complication. It was so forward thinking at first... but the world keeps moving ahead!
Works, even on X
annag42 on 2/28/2018
However, it doesn't use the whole screen.
The best
Myuzu84 on 1/25/2018
My favorite productivity app. Helps me keep a routine, get everything done, and not waste time.
I wish android phone has such an awesome app.
All about fairness on 1/23/2018
Very intuitive to use. All these smart gestures. I searched the whole google play store and can't find as help an app as this one. The ios design is awesome. Good for ipad and iphone. Superb app. Great great stuff. Make you productive.
Excellent app
La1miss on 1/11/2018
I love this app. At this point I’ve tried around 20 or 30 different timers, pomodoro apps, todo lists with timers etc. however, I keep coming back to this one... So while functionally app is great, there are couple things I’d love to see changed: 1) an optional, non-tap/gesture based organization. I duplicate tasks a lot, and I find 3 finger taps get registered as 2, and the task goes up to the top. Sometimes multiple times in a row.. 2) Color scheme. This could be an add on, but after 6 months or so of the colors that are available now, I would love to see a different design. Maybe a flat toned color scheme/theme, different font, or something of the sort.
Jeheje on 1/10/2018
I love this app but I really need it on my Apple Watch
ProcrastinationTerminator on 1/7/2018
Was fantastic , until the latest update. Now i the app alunch is slow on my ipad2 ios9
The only app that helps with my executive dysfunction
SeeItClearly on 12/5/2017
I've tried what feels like a million productivity apps (probably about 20) and this is the one that stuck. There are a few interface changes I'd like to see to make it a little more efficient to use, but for how much this app has helped me, I wouldn't dream of rating it less than 5 stars. Thanks, 30/30!
Makes getting work done easier
Chondrion on 11/26/2017
This app motivates me to get more done during the day. I hope to be getting an Apple Watch soon, and hope the new release will offer supported for that too.
Best task manager
misplacedmedic on 11/25/2017
This enables me to structure my busy times and feel productive and less stressed. Please please make it watch compatible! I would love to not have to carry my phone or iPad around the house while working.
Love it and use all the time
savoygirl on 11/22/2017
Pretty much use this all the time but I wish there was an Apple Watch version. That would be awesome.
Jramp456 on 11/21/2017
Was looking forward to update - broken; black screen and then app closes. Update: still black screen.
The absolutely best time management SYSTEM
tehehe4all on 11/21/2017
I’ve turned this app on to my team members and classmates. It’s simple, clear and helps to manage chunks of your time during day. The app sums up all your “time commitment” for each task helps you to truly see your day
So close... but still so visually unappealing
Em Pogo on 11/12/2017
I've had a love/hate relationship with this app for years now. It's the BEST app functionally... but it's just so unattractive. The font choice and overall visual tone is really unappealing to me; if feels like the aesthetic of "tech companies" from the 80's. I realize this shouldn't be this important, but when it's an app that I have running during my entire workday it's not unimportant. (I'm also in the visual arts, so that's probably why I feel so strongly about this.) That being said, I am thrilled to see that the app is finally being worked on again after a lengthy absence. I'd love to see some skins or visual choices added in version 3! If the look could be modernized to fit the current iPhone aesthetic (hire a designer who specializes in that look if it's not your thing, Dear Developer), I would be forever and ever satisfied. ❤️ I would be willing to pay for this-- in app purchase, $5-$10? Seriously. As to the functionality of this app: absolutely the best one on the market. Nothing else even comes close, and I've tried them all.
a question
T_Thrust on 10/29/2017
hello, i’m unable to figure out how to delete a list. is there any way to delete a list? a -longtime user
Great app, has been renewed!
wasp604 on 10/28/2017
This app was great, was abandoned, but then the developer came back and fixed it up like new, plus iOS 11 support! Great! One feature I'd really like is to have the app read which step just started, when it starts. Maybe I could use VoiceOver? Anyway, it would be a nice thing for workouts and such. [EDIT] Just tried VoiceOver, didn't work at all; please add VoiceOver support!
Worked for years. Still works.
NameOfAvatar on 10/15/2017
This app has been solidly reliable and possessing of all the features I want and none of the fluff that frustrates me about other apps. After YEARS of reliable functionality- I’m impressed at the degree of this app’s elegance. This app doesn’t annoy or irritate, it just looks great and works.
Amazing app
Swordspider on 9/10/2017
The UI is genius. This is really good for people like me who have ADHD or for anyone who struggles with procrastination or getting stuff done!
Jenn356 on 9/6/2017
Just what I have always wanted in a timer/to do list! Flybabies should definitely use this! Love, love, love this app! This is the kind of thing that makes your smartphone more valuable! My request for Version 3: Let me choose a default sound, but let me edit the sound for a particular reminder! I often use this without looking at the screen, so a different sound would let me know what to do next without looking at the screen! Thank you for an awesome app!
30/30 is complete
Mr.Swifters on 9/4/2017
I'm super happy that 30/30 is here to stay! This app literally keeps me running on time. I tried doing my morning routine without it, and let's just say I was late. This app is so beneficial, it amazes me that it isn't a bigger hit amongst the crowd. Now that this app have been accepted for iOS 11 as well, everything is great. Suggestions:A widget on lock screen page for easy navigation outside of app.
Alam not compatible
wtanf on 9/3/2017
For some reasons, the alam is no longer working since a couple of years ago and even with the current updated version ... please fix... love this app so much.
So useful!
Name: on 9/1/2017
This app really helps me to get things done. I get distracted very easily and this helps me to stay on track. So glad they updated it! I can't recommend this app enough to those who have trouble staying on task.
Useful multi-purpose timer
Linkuini on 8/31/2017
Useful for remembering common routines and getting things done on time. Indispensable if you have ADD! So glad this finally got an update. Thank you thank you thank you!
Thanks for the update!
teenage_mutant_ninja_trisha on 8/31/2017
I've loved this app for the longest time and was bummed when I got the alert it was no longer compatible with new iOS versions. This is the best personal timer that covers all different uses and is a life saver for those of us that are time blind. Then, I saw that the app was recently updated and YAY! I so didn't want to get another app because I love this one so much. I haven't found an app that tops this one. Thank you!!!
Unable to open since update
aWildWillAppeared on 8/27/2017
This app was great. Since the update I am unable to open the app at all. It goes to a black screen and then after a wait it crashes
Versatile timer for exercise and work
Evildogmom on 8/24/2017
30/30 has been invaluable for helping me complete physical therapy exercises at home. I can list the exercises and time them or note how many repetitions to do. It's also great for tracking a series of work tasks or setting up a pomodoro style timer for intervals of work and rest.
Notifications don't work!
Cbh1981 on 8/24/2017
I used to love this app, but since the update I do not receive notifications if I am not in the app. I have checked notifications in settings, but the app doesn't even show up there for some reason. I have tried contacting their customer support, but with no success. I am very sad.
I use this every day.
Jdhtwo on 8/23/2017
Can't imagine my life without it. Depend on 30/30 and live my life by it. /// Re: August 2017 updates. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! I have been not updating my iOS or getting a new iPhone for fear of losing 30/30. I didn't know how my life was going to function. (See above original review comment. It's still true.) 30/30 is honestly a technological savior to me and many areas of my life would simply fall apart without it. I seriously questioned the negative ramifications for my mental health and daily ability to get some time-sensitive tasks done once 30/30 was gone. I am so grateful to Bob and Binary Hammer. Please keep 30/30 around FOREVER!!!
Great app but keeps crashing
radra444 on 8/22/2017
I love this app but it has been crashing ever since I updated to the latest version.
This is what I've been looking for for a long time
Rhestholm on 8/19/2017
This app does exactly what I wanted all the Pomodoro apps and scheduling apps that I've tried over years to do. At one point I even went so far as to experiment with programming just so I could make something like this. Thanks for saving me the time, you did a great job!
really useful
LordRDragon on 8/19/2017
sometimes when you are really "in the zone" at work you forget to eat or take breaks. now I'm keeping my schedule in order; breaks, lunch and even when is time to go to pick up the kids. thank you, it really helps me to stay on track. hopefully will still available for the next iOS version.
No Notifications
SaraBaraQuiteContrara on 8/14/2017
I love the design of this app and think it's a great tool. I'm a teacher and I plan to use it next school year to structure small groups. But, I can't get the notification sounds to work unless I'm in the app and the screen is on. I have notifications turned on in the in app settings. I looked in iOS settings, but the app isn't even listed under the "Notifications" section. It's a cool idea, but it would be better if I could consistently rely on the notification sound.
Finally An Update!
Tech Producer on 8/12/2017
This is the best timer app. Period. I'm hust glad to see it's been updated. Thanks devs.
Productivity app The keeps you on time
Mike Igle on 8/10/2017
This app saved me from my ADD. Once I turn it on, it runs a timer on each task I created and is flexible enough to let you add or subtract a few seconds or minutes from each task. I hear this will be updated again soon and I can't wait. Highly recommend!
One of my favorite Apps!!
Dnmill on 8/9/2017
Thank you so much for updating this App. I searched for a replacement and was disappointed in what I found so I am so happy to be able to use this again. It really makes a huge difference in my daily productivity. I'm even more excited that there's another update on the way! It would be ideal if you could add an Apple Watch app.
Better hurry up... I've been searching
wpbdude on 8/9/2017
I've been searching for a replacement. I was delighted when I 1st found this app. However, despite emails and requests for updates or additional icon packs, they just appeared to abandon the app. Making me feel like a sucker because I bought everything they were selling, and I was not pleased with what I got in return. Matter-of-fact, they never even acknowledged my inquiries or requests. The icon pack that they offered was worthless in my eyes. It was just a bunch of icons with a narrow focus; Not ACTIVITIES the average joe would use in daily life. Not everyone writes code or needs symbols for a Halloween party. Even so, I still use it daily because I find it useful. Thanks for the interim update. I would like to see a preview of the new version. I think I voice the thoughts of fateful users all over the world, when I say I'd like to see a preview. So everything been said: BUT HURRY UP!
Love Love Love
shelliburdo on 8/9/2017
I absolutely love this app. I can put all of my to do's in it and add breaks in between. It is awesome for the ADHD brain. Thank you Thank you Thank you. The only thing that would make it better is if it would be Apple Watch compatible.
So relieved to see an update
Something useful on 8/7/2017
I had been trying to wean myself off of using this app for my workday when I did not think it would be updated for iOS11. I was THRILLED to see an update after all. I immediately went back to structuring my day with 30/30 today. Thanks so much!!
/Matthew_Capps\ on 8/6/2017
Thank you sooo much for updating.
So glad there's an update
Jlingo04 on 8/6/2017
I use this all the time for to do lists, cleaning, even working out. I was gonna be so sad if the app stopped working, so I'm glad you guys are updating it.
Love this!
P.mousse Esq. on 8/5/2017
Hurrah for the interim update! Relieved that I won't have to say good-bye to this old friend. I'm looking forward to the next round. Original review: Simple and smooth, clutter free, visually based—just about everything was done right in this app. It's a pleasure to use. What I would like to see: unlimited (or larger limits) for tasks, a few more colors, and a broader range of icons. (Ideally I'd like to add my own, as my needs are seldom met by the standard collections.) I've tried dozens of scheduling/pomodoro-style apps, but haven't found anything that's as well thought-out and customizable as this one. I hope the developer hasn't abandoned it.
Love this app!!
Mauserica on 8/5/2017
Thanks for the update!!!
Great UI, Fun 2 tap n learn
McSear on 8/4/2017
Totally happy with this app; handy 4 me. There is only one other similar tomato app just as good. Functions just as described. Reliable @ 2 weeks use. Actually fun just exploring the gesture controls. Yes, it helps me structure my workflow in an effective and pleasant way that works well. #RECOMMEND I've reviewed 4 similar apps. "30/30" is very good; slightly more complicated to learn yhan my other favorite 'cause it has more colors, icons & options.
Really good!
romoosz on 8/4/2017
Must have for me. Any chance for Apple Watch app? UPDATE: It's back to being actively developed. Great news!
Amazon app!
Tomeqq on 8/4/2017
Thanks for updating it - this is one of my favorite apps. Thanks!!
