Is there any way to watch my planet timers for pi. Such as cycle times for extractors?

Click on the extractor?

If you mean an automated program, then no, there's no API endpoint for stuff like PI production/extraction facility status, sorry. It's very unlikely anyone's built a tool for that since it'd have to have manual timing (e.g. "Click here when you run your extractors and then I'll beep at you after the interval you specify").

If you really want a tool that will remind you when to cycle your extractors (for example), you could use something like Google Calendar, which supports smartphone alerts and also has repeating events:

My advice would be to, rather than adjust a timer to remind you when to update your PI, instead adjust your PI workflow so that it's natural and obvious. For example, you could set your extractors to run for 6.5-day cycles and then always update them Saturday morning, or sync them with your 4-day manufacturing job cycle.

Good luck with PI - it's a really good indy activity both for new-ish players (since it offers great returns with little capital investment) as well as old (since they tend to have large pools of research+mfg toons, which you can augment with PI for added income).

Just use EVEMon, it has an option for tracking PI.

i set up an alarm on my smartphone for 5 minutes before i need to re activate my pi factories.
