MacAppStuff Rest

We all know it is sensible to take breaks while using a computer for extended periods of time, in order to help prevent eyestrain, stiff neck, headaches, back aches, and RSI. Sometimes you forget to rest because you are immersed in your work.

MacAppStuff Rest can remind you to take such breaks. Simply specify the amount of time you want to work between breaks, the length of the breaks, and how you want to be notified when a break is due.

The application resides in the status area of your Mac’s menu bar, out of the way. It displays an icon and the current mode (Work or Break) along with a countdown of the minutes left. The application starts in ‘work’ mode, that is the period of time you want to spend at the computer before taking a break. The length of time can be specified in the application’s preferences window. Many more features.

  • You can now specify your own message to appear for work/break periods
  • The message can be spoken out (if supported by your OSX)
  • Many more enhancements
