Taking regular rest breaks away from your computer is essential to stay focused and productive throughout the day. Short breaks also boost concentration and prevent discomfort and Repetitive Strain Injuries.
Rest Time lives under an icon in your Mac's menu bar and pays attention to how long you have been working, so that you don't have to. Unlike other products, it does not require privileged access that might put your privacy and internet security at risk.
Rest Time schedules your breaks intelligently: It will never start a timer in your absence, and it will automatically detect when you have taken a break without requiring any prodding.
Unlike other tools, Rest Time does this without requiring the dreaded "Access for Assistive Devices", which would leave you wide open to key logging and other privacy and security risks.
During a break, Rest Time takes over the entire screen and displays a relaxing animation prompting you to take your well-deserved break.
While the screen is locked, Rest Time"s unique time lock button allows you to unlock it in emergencies, while gently dissuading you from doing so too often.
Rest Time recognizes that there are times when taking a break is not an option, and allows you to disable its countdown for up to 12 hours.
This safely gets Rest Time out of the way during presentations or other times when its use might be inappropriate, but makes sure that you do not forget about recovery breaks later in the day.
Rest Time reminds you to take breaks and has everything it needs to do so well - and nothing else.
The resulting design is uncomplicated and easy to live with, day in and day out.
Rest Time is brought to you by a development team with over 20 years of Mac software development experience, and is based on the very latest platform technologies.
Rest Time is new, first launched in May 2017, but it is hardly our first foray into the world of rest break timers.
We first published MacBreakZ, our full-featured RSI prevention & recovery tool in 1996. MacBreakZ was built specifically for people who are already experiencing significant repetitive strain injury symptoms or are recovering from existing injuries. MacBreakZ thus requires a significant amount of "buy in".
Rest Time is different. It is designed to provide 80% of the prevention for 20% of the discipline. It is best suited as an RSI prevention tool. It stays discretely out of the way and allows you to overrule it with just enough fuss to gently prod you in the right direction.
