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.”

** Awards & Achievements **
Named "one of the Best ADHD Apps of 2015" by Healthline, Runner-up for Best Task Manager app in the 2012 Best App Ever awards, named “one of the best apps of 2012” by 148Apps and “one of the 100 best apps ever made for iOS” by Tap! magazine.

Best pomodoro app!
kab1009 on 6/23/2017
This is my favorite of all the pomodoro/time management apps I've used. I keep getting notices that it might not work with future iOS versions and this makes me sad. I have been trying out others that are available and they just don't compare to the flexibility and ease of use of this one. I hope the developers update it for use with future iOS versions!
Great app, however it's in desperate need of an update.
metayawn on 6/13/2017
It becomes slightly clunkier and slower with each iOS version update. Are there any plans to update this to 64-bit for iOS 11? If not, there's really no reason for anyone to install this anymore, as it was last updated three years ago, and it will not be compatible moving forward.
Great app!
hb091666 on 6/11/2017
iOS is is telling me the app needs to be updated or it won't work with future iOS versions. Please update, it's a great app that I use frequently.
Glid247 on 6/10/2017
Best of all time. I keep trying others and I keep coming back. I hope the developers come back. Either way, thanks guys for an awesome app that has helped so much!
Awesome app, needs update!
grrlwatcher on 6/6/2017
My iPhone is telling me that running the app will slow everything else down because it hasn't been updated since 2014. I would gladly pay up to $5.99 or so for an updated version, or for an app that does what this one does, but haven't been able to find a substitute.
My favorite app!
Nickname_9000 on 5/31/2017
This is my favorite app by far. I use it every day to help me stay on task during my morning routine. It has helped me to be better at being on time because I can use it to include the travel time as the last step in the routine. I have used it as a pomodoro timer. I use it with my kids for bedtime. I love the color & icon options to customize the timer lists. I would happily pay more for this app because it is so useful!
Please add Time Overage and Apple Watch
alxthegr8 on 5/30/2017
It would be nice if the app showed how much time OVER was spent on a task, and not just auto start the timer on to the next task. Which would help in time management moving forward in the day. Be able to better gauge how much time is needed, or wasted in a task. Otherwise, great app. Please add Apple Watch! This app is perfect for a AppleWatch to start time, have a buzz reminder that time is almost up, and to stop time on a task. Adding task function would also be nice.
Great, but sounds don't always work.
Seriousshoppermom on 5/30/2017
I love this app and the only way I'd improve it would be to fix the sound working intermittently. It's hard to stay on task when the task change...if there's no alert.
Excellent for working from home
MoiraEberle on 5/23/2017
Last year my work changed so that I would be working mostly from home. I love having the control of my workday and space but am easily distracted by, well, pretty much everything. This is the perfect app - Gets me on a specific work task, makes sure I take breaks, sets limits so I can clean even though I hate it, and helps me do those tasks that I am avoiding. Hope they update it as Apple says it won't work with future iOS versions.
Needs update for iOS, pls :)
hazel0206 on 5/19/2017
Handy! But pls update: an iOS 10.3 update on an iPhone 6 triggered a note about this app being incompatible with future versions of iOS.
Used to like it, getting annoyed
LilLunaLady on 5/17/2017
It doesn't alert on the transfer anymore? It tells me what the next thing is, like, mid cycle. I'm so confused because it definitely did not used to do this. Also, The alarm sound is quieter than music and there's no way to adjust it.
Please Update IOS
Rmcbarro on 5/16/2017
I love this app! Please update so it will keep working on my devices!!
Was awesome until it wasn't
puddingcakepie on 5/9/2017
ADHD user here, this app was the answer to my prayers, even purchased the upgrade so I could have more customizable images but atlas the app hasn't opened in months - just takes me to a blank screen. Real bummer.
Please update!
Monsmusic on 5/9/2017
I (like many reviewers) am an adult with ADD. This app is wonderful for keeping me working, especially on tasks I don't love to do. I'm also a teacher and recommend this app to many of my students. I also use it in my classroom frequently to help us all use our time better. I just received a notification that it will not work with future versions of iOS unless it gets updated. Please update it! We need this app to work!
Good app
Romantic7793 on 5/8/2017
It is very good application, l
The first and only app so far to get me working
Captboog on 5/4/2017
I (like other reviewers I've seen) have ADHD, and out of all apps and things I've tried, this is the only one so far that has kept me on task and actually doing the things I intended to do. The features are solid, and the app works for both once-only activities like a morning schedule, and repeating tasks like studying while taking breaks. One thing I think that could be added is the ability to make/alter folders of lists for better organization (like a folder for specific days, different morning schedules, or different kinds of tasks like repeating vs. once-only). This would make it easier to organize the lists when there are many of them, because there are many things you can use this app for :) another nice change would be greater control over adding or subtracting time while the clock is running. There are times when I want to add back two or three minutes, but if the time left is high enough, I can only add/subtract five or ten (or more) minutes, which is a bit frustrating. Other than these, this app is exceptionally solid, and is definitely worth the download. It's made a difference, and I'm (slowly but surely) getting more and more done with my time. 4.5/5 (rounded to 4) stars in my book. Update: lowering to 3 stars, because this app needs an update. Last update was 3 years ago, but the twitter account for 30/30 says an update is on its way by this summer, so keeping my eyes out for that.
I think this is a great app, 3-finger tap doesn't work
FairCritique on 5/1/2017
Just downloaded this app today and playing around a little. So far I think this app is great, especially for Pomodoro Technique. The 3-finger tap function which is supposed to copy the task doesn't work. I put "break" for 5 mins every after each task, and the copy function would be very convenient. I would give a 5 star if this function works, so please fix this.
Hopeful upgrade
Snhhv6 on 4/27/2017
Hopefully the developers will make the transition from the 32 bit to the 64 bit. I want to keep this app but the newer IOS will not support the 32 bit apps. Those apps will slow my phone down. Please update soon!
Db245777543236 on 4/22/2017
I found this app on a Reddit thread... I was so excited to try it; however, it's not user friendly at all. The "directions" are vague and confusing... I still can't figure out how to set more than one timed task (as far as I can tell I can only set one timed task at a time rather than plan several timed tasks in a day). I really felt this would be a much more useful app. I think troubleshooting learning the vague ins and outs is kind of counter intuitive for a time management app! It should be SIMPLE
I love this! Concerns about iPhone compatibility
Pumpkin1972 on 4/21/2017
This is a great timer, does everything I want it to. I am concerned though, because there have not been updates, and when I launch it, there is a message that the app needs to be updated by developer ~ I hope this is in the works!
Love this app!
Leon_Phelps on 4/18/2017
Terrific time management tool! I set it up for 50 minutes (be productive), then 10 minutes (take a break). Amazing how much more I get done. However, I think they need to update it since iOS has been updated a few times. Binary Hammer, please update this when you have a minute! Thanks!
Update PLEASE!!!
Jakykatz on 4/18/2017
This is the best productivity app. However Apple keeps warning that I won't be able to use the app in future iOS updates... help!!!
Best time management app
Ebolla13 on 4/18/2017
Best time management app! I use it for writing, working , and the gym. I hope they keep it updated!
App needs to be updated!!!
Mrdntplay on 4/16/2017
Great App! App needs to be updated!!! ASAP!!!
Best App ever!
SandiF on 4/8/2017
This app truly motivates me. The only downside... no watch app, which is one of the only reasons I purchased it. I need this app and having it on my wrist would be the best because I can't always have my phone. I wish there was something comparable for the watch. I love it's ease of use.
Very Useful App.....But Ages since update
Oluwasanme on 4/4/2017
This is a very useful app But it's almost 3 if not over 3 years since the last update Please update soon before it doesn't support 64 bit apps again
This app will soon stop working
Qjqjqjqjqjdjfgfh on 4/2/2017
A great app that will stop working at the end of 2017 when Apple releases iOS 11 if the developer doesn't update it to be a 64 bit app. This will be the loss of a great app.
Great, would be better if it could continue.
Leitilumo on 3/29/2017
PLEASE UPDATE YOUR APPLICATION. Does what it's supposed to, in an attractive manner. The IAP is not irritating either. The fact that it's been relegated to icons is great. :)
Great app: please UPDATE IT!
Lifeofjen on 3/23/2017
I wish the developer would update this app! The last update was Feb. '14. I keep getting a message on my iPhone that it needs an update. I use this awesome app to keep my students on track during tutoring. I can hit every activity I need to, within the time frame, and always stay on schedule.
omg pls
12toast12 on 3/20/2017
Used to be the best timer!
jazzytaxi on 3/14/2017
Used to be the best timer out there, but it hasn't been updated in a while. Keeps crashing on my iPhone 7 plus. Please update!
NEEDS update!!! Won't let me delete tasks
Wicklessmom on 3/9/2017
I used to rave about this app bc I am such a procrastinator & this app helped keep me on task! Now it won't let me delete tasks by swiping them right. So it's useless if you add in something for the day then need to delete it. :/ too bad bc I really loved this app.
I love you but not today
M. Cezario U. on 3/5/2017
30/30 I have horrible ADHD, horrible sense of time, horrible control of my life and sometimes this would get me so down I would refuse to leave my bed. For years… my biggest wish in life is to be here more. New eating habits, meditation, research, prayer - has proudly led me to be a part of my life more often. You make up 70% of my progress. You are my heroes. I had hope but now I am really sure and so excited of all the things I will accomplish. I want to save the world! You teach me sometimes people just need a push or some guidance. I used to feel so crippled and this really helped me take charge of my day. Hour by hour. The security it gives me is so inspiring. You help me breath. There are some glitches … some of the biggest problems is when a tab changes duration time or It will skip to next task; sometimes it won’t show the timer even if it’s on. When I have a notification, I go to icon and it just turns it on/off. Please fix it. Today was hard, app acting crazy. Some other things not so important but would be nice … could we add some new colors. My least favorite are the purple options. So rough. I was thinking some basic colors “Piet Mondrien”vibe. Get away from the neons. When I go to see other lists is it possible to continue to play the original list running? Sometimes I want to check another list to add something etc anyway I can’t bc then it turns off current list. I don’t have apple mail how do I use my gmail to share my list? What is the purpose of icloud sync? Thank you, truly thank you
Best Productivity App
DrewDarby on 2/28/2017
This is the most useful productivity app I've come across. I hope it gets updated for iOS 10, and an Apple Watch version would be helpful too.
Five stars if mild mildly updated
christy_in_the_speaker on 2/17/2017
I love this app! It could use some fresh paint since it's looks a little too large for newer devices. Thanks for the useful app!
Most Effective Daily Time Manager
BeachBiker on 2/12/2017
I love this app! I can add tasks and assign duration to them, then I can see whether they all fit in my day. It's simple but flexible. And it works for me.
Love it!
charysma on 2/11/2017
Love this time management app. Also great as an exercise HITT countdown timer. Would love to see an update, if possible.
Fjgddgjkibvv on 2/9/2017
Love this app! I'm hoping that the developers will update it since the last update was in 2014. Fantastic for my morning routine since it keeps me on track and on time.
Please update
Mr.Swifters on 2/6/2017
I love this app and have noticed that it will soon not be supported in ios 11. I wouldn't want to lose this wonderful app. So I asked you update it please.
Brilliant Desgin
Ccrodduan on 2/6/2017
Love the UI, fun and intuitive. Its functionality and customization options are cool. I would love to see this have a widget and/or watch app!
Best app ever is called 30/30 It's so pretty
Eisleyc on 1/19/2017
Best app ever is called 30/30 It's so pretty and great for keeping track of your time and planning your days as evenings ! Fit in working out and don't get lost in computer labs!
Awesome Time management App
Mrconcrete on 1/18/2017
Easy to use and keeps me on task. I use it almost everyday for a variety of tasks. Keeps me productive and focused. To the developers: please add Apple watch capability - even if just for the notifications.
Great concept well executed
Arduous on 1/11/2017
Akira35965 on 1/8/2017
I rarely ever review apps unless I feel they truly deserve one. This app is magnificent. It is easy to use, simple to edit, and beautiful. The instructions are simple and easy to understand and allows you to get started with your tasks in virtually no time at all. All I have to say is if you want to make your life easier and more efficient then GET THIS APP!
Best app ever!!!!!
CluckCluckCluck on 1/8/2017
Love it, love it. I actually use it and it helps me so much by making this simple list and folders that you can rearrange. It's the only app I have ever consistently used. Please keep it working forever, because I don't know what I'd do without it! There are so many great things about it, I can't list them all.
ttu101 on 12/24/2016
Just tried this and found that it simply will not work with iOS 10. Shame it wasn't kept up because it has an intelligent interface. Oh well.
So Confusing
🎀Heyyy🎀 on 12/16/2016
This was one of the most confusing apps I've ever seen. I had no clue how to use it and quickly deleted it. Would not recommend. 👎🏻👎🏻
...is taken on 12/8/2016
Was great. Now bleach. Timer stops early, etc. Developers seem to have forsaken it. Find something else.
Please fix!
julyjade24 on 12/8/2016
Current version is buggy with my iPhone 6– the app won't load and I have a black screen. Otherwise, I'm a huge of this timer and want to congratulate the developers on making such a great app :)
Was fantastic until it was abandoned
PCNack on 12/5/2016
This app was a fantastic time management tool that I used for almost 5 years. I told many of my friends about it as well. Really bummed the developer abandoned the app. It now crashes when I try to run it using iOS10. If you are like me and need an alternative, I highly recommend the app called MultiTimer. It's just as good and continues to be updated as of this date.
