Editors' review

Though you can schedule breaks with this application, it's a bit rough around the edges. GeekAlarm's Control Panel is somewhat cluttered and drab. Buttons at the bottom of the smallish interface offer access to alarm settings such as intervals between breaks, length of breaks, and alarm type. You can opt for the Active mode and your computer is locked during the break. A simply rendered page reminds you to exercise or refocus your eyes. You can add your own image but the quality isn't great. Passive mode offers the suggestion for a break but doesn't lock your computer. An error occurred in testing until a sound file was specified for the alarm, as the default file couldn't be found. The Help file was also missing in action. GeekAlarm was fairly easy to use but nothing really stands out about it. You'll have 14 days to check out the trial version to see if this simple app is right for you.
