"too pricey"

June 23, 2003  |  By jglenn

 |  Version: Coffee Break Pro X 2.1.2

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I have been using version 2.1.2, and its dramatic blanking of the screen when it is time for a break is the type of kick in the pants I really need to get away from the keyboard and rest. It works well.

I have 3 problems with the OS X version, though: $20 is too expensive, very little programming goes into a timer, compared with a shareware product like graphic converter that is a work of staggering proportion; it doesn't recognize breaks taken while the computer's asleep; and it sucks up 1 to 3 percent of my Power Mac G4 dual processor, which seems excessive for a timer. We'll see if these are fixed in a subsequent version. Also, the graphics on the screen saver could be a little more professionally polished.
