MaToMaTo - Windows Pomodoro Timer

This page is obsolete. Please go to the new home of the MaToMaTo pomodoro timer.


  1. Giorgio,
    Very nice! I will use it.

  2. Really nice timer, great job guys! I use it all day here in London.

  3. nice idea and love the bright red tomato!

    Two ideas for improvement - would be nice to have the option to stop it moving during counting (can be a bit distracting) and also to change it's size (i have a very small laptop screen - it's quite large on it). Otherwise it's great!

  4. Thanks for using MaToMaTo and for the precious advices! They are on the new features list for version 2.

    In the mean time, happy pomodoros!

  5. When I run the program, I get the familiar window:
    MaTamato has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

  6. Hi,

    make sure you have .NET 3.5 Framework installed. You can download it at

    Hope this helps!

  7. Thank you so much for this. I use it every day. Is there any chance that in a future version we'd have the option of a sound notification when the 25 minutes is up? Sometimes I minimise my tomato, but I keep getting distracted by looking to see how the time is going.

  8. Hi B.

    Thank you for your comment and for using MaToMaTo!

    We will take into consideration your suggestion. Next release is in the making and the sound notification should be in the list of new features. So stay tuned as MaToMaTo 2 comes to life!

    In the meantime...

    Happy pomodoro!

  9. Thank you so much. As I said before, I use MaToMaTo every single day (apart from weekends)--it's fantastic.

  10. Great program I use it all the time! I agree, having the option to make it a smaller tomato would be great. Even if it still rocked (I like it that way, personally) you wouldn't be as distracted.

  11. Great program.

    Was using pomodairo -- built in a gong sound -- but having technical difficulties with it. Any way to build in the thumb to rock for the 5-minute break period instead of indefinitely?

    Thanks for designing it and making it available.

  12. Hey -- my thumb just stopped rocking. Is it already built that way?

  13. Hmmm....I think the thumb rocks for 10 minutes. Would it be possible to set it for 5?

  14. Walden, (if I survive Christmas ;)) I'll try to work on the project in the new year and fix the issue you are reporting and put the option to make it smaller (Mary).

    Thanks for commentingand for using MaToMaTo.

  15. Nice Post!
