Vitamin-R Gets Update to Version 3

publicspace today is proud to announce version 3 of Vitamin-R, its innovative time boxing solution designed to overcome procrastination, retain focus and maintain motivation. Version 3 features a completely reimagined single window user experience, a soft break and lock screen option, deeper customization, improved support for the Pomodoro Technique, clearer statistics, faster log handling, personalized profiles, an integrated help system, improved integration with OmniFocus 3 and Things 3 and many other improvements.


Vitamin-R creates optimal conditions for the human brain by structuring work into short bursts of distraction-free, highly-focused activity alternating with opportunities for renewal, reflection and intuition. The built-in task logging and analysis features create positive momentum towards productivity by providing users with tangible feedback on their progress and achievements.


New In Version 3:

Version 3 features a completely rewritten single window user interface which integrates all major tools: workflow, log book, statistics, help system and note pads into a single window. The new interface takes Vitamin-R’s peerless configurability to the next level, by offering the option to add or remove user interface and workflow elements to create individualized workflows.


The new “soft break” feature no longer interrupts the user at the end of a time slice, but instead waits for up to 30 seconds for the user to stop typing or mousing. Vitamin-R makes it easy to extend time slices for short periods.


The new “lock screen” feature allows users to optionally lock the display of their Mac during timed break to force them to take breaks away from their desk.


The statistics tool has been completely rewritten for improved clarity and the log file handling has been optimized for users with a lot of logged time slices. The new log book provide a much improved overview of recent time slices and serves as a place to rapidly switch tasks.


Vitamin-R’s integration with OmniFocus 3 and Things 3 has been updated and improved and now imports tag names and durations where available.


The new “Profiles” feature allows users to pre-configure the countless tool options to best match their preferences and workflow. Particular attention has been given to people who want to implement a purer version of the Pomodoro Technique rather than Vitamin-R’s more flexible approach.


The new “Pomodoro-style breaks” control allows timed breaks to be configured with the two or three short breaks followed by a long break advocated by the Pomodoro technique.


Other improvements include quicker keyboard-based controls for changing durations, improved options in the right click status bar menu and support for macOS 10.14 Mojave and its unique visual style.

For now, the Vitamin-R 3 Beta is exclusively available from the publicspace web store for for $24.99 (USD). The web store also offers Family, Business and Enterprise licensing and customers may chose to include a “forever upgrade” with their purchase. Each Vitamin-R web store purchase includes a free license for its companion product, Noise Machine, which is also available separately starting at $4.95 (USD).

Version 2 is available on the Mac App Store and will be joined there by version 3 shortly after its official launch.
