Use it every work day

Because of COVID, I have been working remotely since March 2020. My life was basically sleep, eat, and work - sitting behind the computer the whole day and not moving. So, in 2020 I started to gain weight and developed a blood clot in my leg.
I installed Simon Says to send me a reminder to get up and move. I go for 5 minute walks or work in the garden for a a bit then go back to work. My weight is decreasing, the swelling in my leg is almost gone and when I sit back down to the computer, I can handle issues better because the 5 minutes away, refreshes my mind.

get up and move

I like the fact that it reminds me to do something. Since I can only have 2 exercises, I just add something to each. For me, under crunches, I also do reverse crunches as well. For legs, I do donkey kicks and hydrant.

Great reminder app; could use some features

I really like the simple interface, and the ability to add custom exercises and customize the time interval. I purchased the premium version, and have no regrets.

That said, in the age of Zoom meetings, it would be nice to have options -- say, a configurable snooze time, or a "do not disturb while in Zoom" mode -- to keep that window from popping up while I'm sharing my screen.

I'd also like to be able export the log of activities completed. I emailed the developer, and they said they're working on it. Fingers crossed!
