After reading an article on infoQ, I started using the Pomodoro technique. It works pretty good, but I do still strugle with making my self take a break after the 25 minutes is up.
I recently spent a few days and created a simple timer application to monitor my pomodoros, it is pretty rough around the edges, but good enough for a first release.
In the end I did not really use any of the Titanium Api in my code, just jquery, css and html.
