Snail’s timer will tell you exactly where your time went.
With a heavy emphasis on productivity and efficiency, Snail doesn’t overwhelm you with due dates; rather, it simply collects your tasks in a “stack” in your menu bar, until you’re ready to tackle them. Adding something to your stack is as easy as dragging and dropping, and Snail’s minimal, single-day interface makes sure you don’t get too far ahead of yourself.
As you dive into each task, Snail keeps track of your time, so you can target any productivity pitfalls. A built-in digital stopwatch shows you exactly how long you’ve been working, but you have to remember to start it; when you inevitably forget, Snail lets you edit your saved times. Bright red alerts show you when you’ve neglected one of your tasks and a pleasant shade of green denotes completion, but we would have liked a little more control over the interface. The ability to change colors or set periodic alerts might have helped us remember to use the timer more often, and while the one-day-at-a-time method might work for some, we would have preferred the option of seeing a full calendar.
The bottom line. If you’re slow to get going, Snail’s time-management techniques will give you a push in the right direction
