• GSoft Challenge (Pomodoro)
  • Shutterstock API (Search)
  • SunLife (Burnout)
  • Octave (Music Player)
  • Telus (Mental Health)

What it does

  • Pomodoro timed messages
  • Aggregate priority messages so when the pomodoro timer is up, you get all the important messages you've missed in one spot
  • While pomodoro in effect, a music player and slideshow overlay the app to prevent distractions from notifications
  • Reduce workplace burnout through music and employee feels less overwhelmed not having to constantly stop their current task to check messages
  • Prevents nonproductive behavior and distractions caused by constantly checking messages as they're posted
