My New Favorite App

9/1/2020 ☼ posts

Slash.

You list your tasks.

Start working on one.

It creates a little tiny status bar over your desktop with a timer. It doesn’t get in the way, but it constantly reminds me what to be working on.

It tracks what I’ve been working on.

Why not use a task app + a timer (pomodoro)?

I’ve found that doesn’t work because it’s not integrated. I stare at my list, go to another window, and if I do start a timer, it’s just for a sprint.

Slash, like other standout apps, just feels different. It makes more sense.

It’s on the level of Notion, YNAB, and iA Writer as far as apps that just make sense.
