Best I’ve Found

I spent the past week experiementing with a bunch of “break reminder” apps for OS X (including Time Out, Awareness, Recess, and Breaktime). I wanted something affordable and simple that would remind to take a break every X number of minutes, that was unobtrusive, that would autolaunch at login, that would display status in the menu bar, and allow me to over-ride things if need be. This app was the winner for me. Its working perfectly for needed reminders to get up and move around. As they say, “sitting is the new smoking.” Highly Recommended!

Control (little), Tips (redundant), Quit option (no)

It is true that $2.99 is not much. However, it is still $2.99 for an app that is supposed to be a “Healther: Break Reminder!”

The app provides little control over break frequency (1-90 minutes!) What if I want a longer break period?

The “Healther” tips are redundant. True, computer algorithms do not deliver a perfect stochastic result! Still getting the same “tips” repeatedly becomes annoying!

You can not “quit” healthier. The only option to quit is the Activity Monitor, which I employ almost every restart so that I can stop this app!

Developer, please:
1 allow the user to pick the break interval with digits, rather than a slider
2 provide a better algorithm to “randomly” pick from your list of break tips
3 provide the user the option to “quit” the application
4 for updates, why is Mojave required? DarkMode negatively impacts those of us who are vision impaired! I have a great deal of trouble reading text against a dark background!

Thank you.
