I use Pomodoros with some success, but I would really like to be able to easily track how many and when I do them. Is there an app that keeps a log of start time and stop time (if it was stopped prematurely)? Preferably with an easy way to export?

With 'app' you mean software on a phone? Any platform in particular? – THelper Dec 13 '12 at 8:33
Android would be preferable, but on a computer would be okay too. – John Salvatier Dec 13 '12 at 20:05
Technically, Pomodroido stores the state (aborted/completed) and timestamps of every pomodoro you do with the app. But it doesn't display it anywhere. – Muz Dec 20 '12 at 3:58
Hmm, that's pretty interesting, how do you know? Would it be easy to hack it to store that somewhere? – John Salvatier Dec 20 '12 at 8:37

AFAIK there are no Android Pomodoro apps that keep detailed statistics. Most Pomodoro apps I found on Google Play are just basic timers.

I think the app that comes closest to your needs is Pomodoro Master. It keeps track of the total amount of pomodoro's today, this week and this month. There is also a paid version but I'm not sure what the extra's are.

A similar app is Pomodroido, which offers more or less the same as Pomodoro Master but without the month statistic. However, on Google Play it says that they are working on analytics and something called "Pomodoro exportable" (not sure what they mean by it, but maybe export function?).

I haven't tried any Pomodoro software on my computer. From what I've read on this Productivity question it seems like Pomodairo might do the trick? If you're on a Mac, you might also want to look at My Little Pomodoro (paid software)

I use for what you describe... keeping track of how may pomodoros I do on different tasks; it shows progress graphs too :) Unfortunately doesn't work on my android phone when the screen is off, but works in any standard browser.

Clockwork Tomato for android seems to have a calendar and an export function, according to the description, but I haven't tried it.

Marinara Timer keeps a running list of your intervals for you. You get a personal link (that you can share with other team members) and as long as you keep using the same link, it holds on to your history. Full disclosure, this was created by a team at the company I work for.

What I use is - a kanban board with a embedded pomodoro timer. That timer has a log that looks something like this:

Worked focused for 25 minutes on "Learn ZCA" without stop. One pomodoro completed 10 December 2014 00:14

Stopped after 5 minutes of work on "Learn ZCA" with reason "Phone call". Sorry, the pomodoro was not completed 9 December 2014 23:20

It provides statistics on interruption causes and also has some API, but I don't know much about that API.
