A great example of non-obtrusive positively designed software where user experience comes first.

Simple, effective. I like the randomised suggestions for breaks.

Relatively easy to understand, nice interface. Wish it were slightly more configurable (e.g., I'd like to be able to do a 1-minute break every 30 minutes, but it appears to limit to 30-sec breaks).

Simple, pretty and open source, yet with most of the functionality seen in "Time Out", a Mac app that I tried before, which is nice, but is freemium and subscription based. So far I haven't missed any of the extra features in that. As a bonus Stretchly also has hilarious names for its colour themes, like "coffee kiss" and "autumn be blessed", so it's hard to beat in every way!

Edit: One thing I'd like to have added is the ability to customise the messages yourself. Most of them work very well for me, but I'd like to remove the ones that don't, maybe add a few and change some to better fit my working situation. Also, it'd be interesting to be able to give yourself specific commands this way..

Beautiful, minimalistic design. Creative hints actually motivate me to take breaks.

Excelent app!

It's really beautiful and works perfectly, also it has great messages.

I would like to see something like a timeline/history of my breaks.

Tested on Ubuntu 16.04 / Unity.

That's great idea, I will add it to the ideas.
