Desktop timer versus the HQ timer

Let's start with what the live timer and the desktop timer both do. They both time pomodoro sessions. That means you can set a session length and a break length.

Using the live timer removes the need to install any software on your computer, using the desktop timer allows you to have a mini timer that is always on top to keep you updated on progress, and you don't need to be in the browser all the time (and we all know internet browsers are a place of distraction!).

What is different about them? Well there is a variable. If you are subscribed to a monthly or annual HQ plan, they both do everything. Everything includes, allowing you to set a client and session label for your sessions, synchronizing all sessions back to HQ timesheets, which in turn allows you to get reports on your sessions and edit them where required.

If you aren't subscribed to a plan then the HQ timer delivers a little more in functionality than the desktop timer. You can set a client, assign a label and save all your data in HQ but you will only ever have up to a maximum of three days data available, which makes the reports a little limited, but if you really like it then you can sign-up to HQ and have all the data access you want!

The focus booster desktop timer without a monthly or yearly subscription is just that, a timer. It is perfect for adhearing to the Pomodoro Technique but it doesn't give you wicked stats around your productvity or automatic timesheeting.
