This video shows a very old version of Go For It!, but most of what is shown still applies to the current version.


The timer helps you to focus on the current task by dividing your time in to sessions to be productive followed by a short break. By default every break has the same lenght, but if you are a fan of the pomodoro technique, Go For It! can be configured to work as a pomodoro timer in just a few clicks.

Storage and Synchronization

Go For It! uses the Todo.txt format to store its To-Do lists. This format is supported by a wide selection of apps for both the desktop and mobile phones.
