Great Idea, But Seems Buggy
I've reinstalled this app a couple of times now to see if it resolves my issues. It works well for reminding me when to stop and take a drink, but the specific water break times don't seem to work correctly. When the times are set up, the wrong glass number is displayed. Not a deal breaker, but a little annoying.
Simple, does what it’s designed to do, works with El Capitan
No refinements* with this version, but at least we know the developer is supporting it.
The design is good for setting both a countdown alarm to get up and stretch for a duration and for up to eight water break time alarms. All user customizable.
The sounds are beautiful, the lighting effect for alerts is nice, and the animation gets in the way enough to really get your attention without being annoying; and a simple click to ignore it if you want.
* I don’t think this app needs more features—the developer specializes in making simple solutions for common little problems— but there is some room for improvement of the app design: 1) the main timer can only be set with a slider control that doesn’t snap to common durations, with no value entry box, 2) the 8 water break alarms are absolute, meaning if you ignore one the interval to the next one will be shorter, 3) there’s no easy pause/resume (which should be to click on the big useless water glass image, 4) maybe animate the water level in that glass, just for fun, and animate the menu bar icon to show remaining time (water in the glass)? It’s better than OK; it’s a good app. But it’s not yet great:)
App does not work - not compatible with OS X 10.9 don’t waste your money
Those who have called this spectacular must have a low threshold. I really don’t get how this works. The thing never starts at the right time, the snooze options don’t work, it doesn’t necessarily keep track of what you consume, just bugs you to drink and if the reminders and logs are not working right, it is only frustrating instead of helpful. I think there must be some bugs the developer must be working on. Not sure it was actually worth the 99 cents! Sorry!
UPDATE - the app information says it is compatible with OS X 10.6 or later, but that is NOT TRUE! I sent a message to the developer and they told me it would not be compatible, that they have no planned update to this to make it compatible, and they offered me no refund. SWINDLED - DON’T WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
