In today’s world we sit without moving for long hours in front of the computer screen. We hurt our eyes, shoulders, backs, and wrists. A short break every once in a while can reduce repetitive-stress injuries associated with computer usage. This utility, which rests in the system tray, reminds us when to take a break, and it does so in style.
This freemium program helps you avoid repetitive-stress injuries at work by periodically reminding you to take breaks. Basic program is free. Premium features can be purchased in-app.
The tiny customizable utility sits in your system tray and pops up a message box or flashes when it's time for you to step away from your computer. You can set the program to remind you via one of the included sounds or your own sound files. Additionally, you can choose from several different system-tray icons. You simply enter the amount of time before your next break, then press Play. Once the time expires and you begin your break, you can view another timer that tells you how long before you need to get back to work. When you go back to work, the program will automatically begin ticking down to your next break. Detailed statistics are available. Scirocco Take Break can be useful to anyone who regularly toils at a computer terminal.
