Few buttons, few features, few options. Only what you need for productivity and nothing more.

At your fingertips

Tadam lives in the menu bar, so it’s always just a click away.

Out of the way

A quick glance gives you a sense of how much time you have left.

A gentle reminder

When work time is almost up, you’ll get a gentle reminder to hurry up.

Wrap up your work for the cycle and prepare for a break.
(Or click the notification to give yourself more time.)

Break away

Your brain is like a muscle — it gets tired with use.
To stay focused, take regular breaks and let your mind recharge.

Tadam helps you do that.

When it’s time for a break, a big window pops up, reminding you to take a break.
You can’t ignore it — you can either take a break or choose to work a little more.

The window covers most of your screen, and if you move it, it will snap back after 30 seconds.
It’s designed to be annoying enough that you’ll take the break like you know you should.

Step away from your Mac. Have a walk, a glass of water. Breathe. Give your brain some rest.

For the pros and for the rest of us

Tadam is for everyone. And if you’re a geek, it’s for you, too.

You can set a hotkey to invoke Tadam from anywhere.
You can control it entirely from your keyboard.
You can set custom work and break durations any time you want.
And you can shrink the break window if you want to spend it at your computer.
