Both straightforward and beautiful, with some flexibility, I'm so pleased I installed it. Because the program covers the screen and tells me to take a break, I actually do, and I end up getting more done, because I do other practical tasks, and get more impatient to work efficiently at the computer.

Very good application. Breaks are configurable. Tried several apps. This one is the best so far.
Wishes for developers:

  1. show not only text during microbreaks but images as well - it's much easier to see a picture rather than concentrating on a text
  2. appear window slowly - I don't like interruptions so have disabled microbreak notifications. But when you are busy it's obstructing when window appears right when you do something, e.g. quickly typing text.

Fantastic break reminder app! Jan is friendly, responds quickly and updates the app regularly (new features were released just yesterday)! I'm a Patreon supporter originally it was to unlock the extra settings but now it's to support the long term development of the app. The interface is intuitive, the design is sleek. A dream come true!

It's GUI is amazing. Though size is alot big but good graphics. It works almost on all the Linux distros. For me on a Slackware based linux neither Workrave, RSIBreak, nor Safeeyes was installing . Since it has support for appimage, It can be used on any linux distro.

There hasn't been another good break reminder app that I've liked since WorkRave until now.

Very light weight application that does all the basic requirements.
Micro breaks, breaks, sound and visual reminder and stretch suggestions all in a minimalistic appearance.

Very smooth sailing, non-intrusive in-between brakes. Doesn't feel annoying or bossy, and has nice, good suggestions! Helps w/ my hyperfocus (ADHD).

It works like it should without being all up in your face. I also like the suggestions given during micro breaks and breaks.

It is easy to configure, gives useful break tips (like reminding you to drink a glass of water), covers the whole screen and really helps to keep you being productive.
