***Desk Job? Sit too Long and Often? Did you know sitting can be deadly in the long run?
********* StandApp Helps Combat "Sitting Disease" ********
Millions of Americans lead sedentary lifestyles (sitting for 9+ hours a day) due to desk jobs, or inactivity. Recent studies performed by the CDC(Center for Disease Control and Prevention) suggest that sedentary lifestyles lead to a host of health risks.
These risks include; obesity, cardiovascular disease, poor cholesterol, high blood pressure, breast and colon cancer, type 2 diabetes, and overall higher mortality rate. Due to the high health risks of compounded extended sitting, it's time for people to take a pro-active approach to maintaining a healthy and active life.
StandApp promotes healthy living by providing an alarm reminder to stand up and take a break from your desk.
StandApp includes 15 easy exercises anyone can perform at their desk during their standing breaks.
You can set the reminder interval to a custom time, we recommend a break at least every hour.
Experts say avoiding the sedentary life is mostly about remembering to be active. Even people who work a desk job for 60 hours each week can still work movement into their days — getting up for a cup of water instead of keeping one at your desk, walking down the hall to talk to a colleague rather than sending an email. StandApp keeps you accountable to this task.
What's New in Version 1.2
Set Custom Alarms - Not restricted to timer/interval mode
New cleaner user interface
Removed Video Ads as most users we're complaining about this.
Please update you will be pleased with this version.
As a guy who spends 9hrs every day sitting in front of computer screens...I wanted some help to remind me to get up!
The app is user friendly, well made, runs in the background, and has helpful video suggestions for activities
I recommend the app creators add in the ability to reduce the break time to 2minutes for the 15 minute frequency setting. Breaking for 5 min every 15 minutes is excessive. It works great for 45 min or hour intervals, but I want to do 2min every 15, as Kelly starrett recommends
So far I like this but it could use some work
The videos and basic functions are good. However, I would like to be able to set my own alert/alarm sound and don’t see any way to do that. Also, a silent/vibrate option would be great. And there is no way to turn off an alarm after you set it. The only way I could turn off an alarm was to set it a minute ahead and wait for it to go off. For $.99, I expect a bit more functionality. Thanks!
I love this app! The work outs are great and really does get me standing more! Only thing that should be added is when you have the app running and then lock your phone it displays on the lock screen. This is my only reason for a four star rating and not a five. Add that and I'll be back on here adding a five star rating.
