Controls and UI Elements
Flow offers some neat controls to handle your pomodoro experience. Since most of the UI elements are kept as minimalistic as possible, their exact functionality may not always be that obvious.
Reset pomodoro counter to easily start over (does not affect the statistics)
Main menu leading to settings, durations, statistics and our App Blocker
Pomodoro counter showing the remaining sessions before a long break (filled = completed session, half-filled = session in progress)
Skip a break
Keyboard Shortcuts (since v.2.0.1)
Flow comes with a few but very useful global keyboard shortcuts or hotkeys.
ctrl ⌥ ⌘ + f
Start / Stop the Flow timer
ctrl ⌥ ⌘ + s
Skip current session
ctrl ⌥ ⌘ + r
Reset pomodoro counter
ctrl ⌥ ⌘ + h

API / Scripts
