A simple app that delivers what it promises
Healthier does exactly what it promises, and is exactly the app I was looking for. I needed a simple reminder to get up and take a break ever hour or so while at work and this does exactly that. I didn’t want to use my phone because it is either loud (annoying to others in my office) or too easy to ignore - Healthier is a great compromise. It does everything I could ask for and a little more, but if there was one usability feature I would request it would be the ability to turn off the ‘quotes’ during the break notification. I like that I can turn off the sound/tips but I don’t believe there is a way to disable the quotes.
A simple important fix to my life.
Wow. So powerful and surprisingly it's gotten much of the rest of my life on track - eating smaller amounts more frequently, picking up the house, stretching, little bursts of exercise, more quality time with the dog, you get the idea.
In my perfect world I'd be able to write my own random "break assignments" that come up. I'd also like the "30 seconds before break" warning to be a little more intrusive. Nice to be able to save files, push the send button, and otherwise wrap things up before the screen suddenly greys.
Fabulous app. Thanks.
Just use it...
If you work on a computer you need to use this app. I've worked on a computer for about 15 years now and this thing is simple and to the point. I don't follow the exercises becuase many you can do without leaving your chair. Take a break and get up and move, go drink some water, go outside, etc… Great little app that does what it says it does.
