Editors' review

Experts recommend that those who use computers for long time periods need to take frequent breaks to prevent health issues from arising. Dejal Time Out for Mac allows users to track when these breaks should occur and has a number of useful options for the task.

Both download and installation of Dejal Time Out for Mac completed quickly, despite the lack of a native installer. There were no user instructions or tutorials available, which was a disappointment since some of the options required trial and error to figure out. Technical support did not appear to be present either. The actual program does not have a menu, but the preferences section brings up a screen that appears dated. The user can change the timing of preset breaks, as well as the sound that plays at their beginning and end. When the break time is reached, the program displays an image indicating how much time remains before the user can restart work. The user can opt to skip or postpone a break with a quick button press. Users may also program smaller alarms for micro breaks. While working in the background, the program tracked and displayed all of the preset breaks as indicated.

For those users looking for a way to track short breaks while working on their computers, Dejal Time Out for Mac performs this function well and would be a welcome option on their Mac systems.

    "Works great. Free."

    August 05, 2014   |   By Slotkins

    Version: Dejal Time Out 1.7.1

    Pros

    Quick and easy set up.
    Preferences are easy to fine tune to my needs.
    PLUS they seem to have removed the offending extension listed above that "adds unwanted extensions to most browsers and makes Yahoo your default search engine." No sign of that as of Aug. 2014.

    Cons

    I can't find any yet.

    Summary

    A big thumbs up so far.

    "Great, mostly..."

    December 07, 2013   |   By AnotherUsername123

    Version: Dejal Time Out 1.7.1

    Pros

    -Quick to set up
    -Many options I appreciate
    -Lets you set programs that won't trigger a time out, like for watching movies.

    Cons

    -The UI could be made more easy to navigate

    -But mostly that it adds unwanted extensions to most browsers and makes Yahoo your default search engine. I never clicked explicitly on anything to download anything but the Time Out app except by accepting Terms of Use/Privacy Policy. The extensions are downloaded into this folder:
    /Users/Your Name/Library/Application Support/Spigot as well as:
    ~/Library/Your Browsers/External Extensions/hbcennhacfaagdopikcegfcobcadeocj.json

    Summary

    Would be a great program if they didn't trick you into installing junk
