You deserved a break, don't work too hard.
Use 'Take a break' to remind you to take regular breaks that help you relieve eye strain.
- As the doctor mentions, every 20 minutes spent using a screen, look away at something that is 20 feet away for a total of 20 seconds.
- Optionally take a 5 mins stand up break every hour.
- Automatically lock screen, we make you a break you can't refuse.
- Sound when break ends, look away from the screen with an easy mind.

Opted for Paid
So far, this has worked nicely, since with a paid version I more finely tune the parameters. It's great that I can have it remind me to take mini-breaks, as well as an hourly big break. I also set up the Calendar app to automatically load the Take a Break on weekdays, to sync up with my work schedule.
One feature that would be great, is to have is the ability to start and stop on a schedule, so that I can have it during work hours, but get rid of it during personal time.
it's not 20min
the time period is not 20 mins but shorter, sometimes it's too soon to see another warning!
Developer Response ,
Thank you for your reply, we will take a look at this issue.
Essential app for long hours at the computer!
As someone who's constantly struggled with eye strain and neck pain this app is total lifesaver! I regularly work 12 hour days at my computer, and since I started using this app my problems have vanished.
The app is very well designed. When the timer ends there's a very gentle fade, and sometimes even stretches and stand recommendations. Pro is worth every penny!
I've tried setting timers before, but it's difficult to keep up with setting a timer while trying to focus on work.
As someone who has been in Physical Therapy for these issues, I'm incredibly grateful to the developers for taking time to make this. Excellent App!
