The object of the game is to simply count up to a designated number in order or spell out the alphabet in order. You’re able to adjust the size, color, and font size of the grid to challenge yourself even more.

When you have a spare moment, go through all of the items that are in need of processing by placing them into buckets, creating due dates, and attaching tags. Once everything is processed, you’re free to get things down however you wish. Thankfully GSDfaster includes a built-in pomodoro timer to help you stay on task.
