Simplify Saturday: The 30/30 Time Management App

Simplify Saturday 30/30 Time Management App www.dineanddish.net

Today on Simplify Saturday, I’m sharing a time management tool that has helped me to simplify my work schedule.

With my job and work schedule, I have the fortunate / unfortunate pleasure of getting to spend parts of my day on some serious time sucking websites. Blog reading, Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and even Instagram can be considered part of the work I do for Dine & Dish and my other freelance jobs. As much as I enjoy browsing sites and interacting with others through social media, it is a challenge for me to not get sucked in. Sometimes, before I know it, an hour has passed by when I initially intended to just “check Twitter real quick”.

Can you relate? If so, I have a great time management tool to share with you today!

Introducing the 30/30 App by Binary Hammer. I discovered this FREE app the other day when reading Amy Lynn Andrews helpful blog post,  “4 Steps to Better Blogging Time Management“. Within her blog post, Amy linked to the 30/30 app and once I clicked over to check it out I was hooked.

The 30/30 Time Management App has a beautiful, easy to use interface and has some really intuitive features. Users can customize each tab with a title and an icon to go along with it and can set a specific length of time for each task. When you start the timer for the first task the app will alert you when your time is up for that task and will move on to the task next in queue.

With some very simple swipe and tap movements, you can re-order tasks, change task info and customize the app to work for you.

If you aren’t a blogger, don’t fret. This app can be used by anyone with an iPhone/ iPad / iPod touch who wants to gain better control of their time. FlyLady fans, those with task oriented projects to do, or even those people who want to build break time into their work day, the 30/30 app is a truly useful tool.

As part of my desire to simplify my life in 2013, I am attempting to limit myself to a 4 hour work day. This has worked some days better than others, but I can tell you that the 30/30 app has certainly helped me to work on reaching my goal.

If you are looking for a simple, beautiful, functional app to help you manage your tasks, I think  you would really love the 30/30 app. If you check it out, let me know how you like it!

  1. I love this!!! During the summer when I am off of school, I carry a little timer with me that I set for 30 minutes for each task I do. This is perfect!

  2. This couldn’t have come at a better time – I’m still learning this whole working from home thing, and those sites can definitely make it a lot harder and longer than originally planned! Downloading the app now :)

  3. THIS may revolutionize my life. Seriously!!! THANK YOU!!

  4. Heather – make sure you read Amy’s blog post too… I think you’ll find that really helpful :)

  5. This is AWESOME! Downloading it right now, and I cannot wait to use it. I really want to limit my work week too — My goal is to move to a 4-day work week.

  6. Ahhh it sounds perfect!! I couldn’t find it for Android :(

  7. I love this! Thanks for sharing!

  8. Yes – we need this on Android!!

  9. OOh always looking for ways to stream line my day and not get side tracked. Thanks for sharing this app.

  10. They make other aps for Android but this one is not available for that platform yet. I guess I will have to wait.

  11. Very cool! Maybe they’ll have it for Windows phones, too, soon!

  12. This is what I try to do with my mornings! But it’s hard to stay on track when twitter and facebook suck you in. I LOVE the idea of this app.

    Thanks for sharing!

  13. This is such a cool app! I know the real estate agents I work with would love this as a form of time blocking. Great find!

  14. Thanks so much for the shout-out, Kristen! Love how you gave an overview of the app here.

  15. This is so cool!!! How did I miss this post?! Downloading now! :)

  16. If you’d like a tool for managing your time and projects, you can use this web-application inspired by David Allen’s GTD:


    You can use it to manage your goals, projects and tasks, set next actions and contexts, use checklists, and a calendar.
    Syncs with Evernote and Google Calendar, and also comes with mobile version, and Android and iPhone apps.

  17. I just wanted to let you know I downloaded this app based on your recommendation and have found it to be so helpful! There are days when some tasks just overwhelm my schedule. So now what I do is set my 30/30 app for a certain amount of time and then I tell myself I will be devoted to the task for that designated time. It works. I get the task done (or at least make some decent progress on it) and I feel much better because of it. Thanks for the recommendation!

  18. I’m downloading this now – I need it so bad!

  19. This is great Kristen! I’m going to have to download it now. :D Thanks for opening my eyes to a great productivity app!

  20. Boy do I need something like this! I’m off to check it out. Looks like it would be very helpful for me!
