"Pleasant, soothing software to prevent RSI and dry eyes"

June 01, 2009  |  By alexia_gaudeul

 |  Version: Time Out 1.5.4

Pros

Simple to set up
- Nice interface and design
- Variety of different settings
- Gradual transition from work to time out and vice versa

Cons

- This product will do the basics, do not expect many bells and whistles.

Summary

The most pleasant time out reminder software I have been using, whether in the Windows or the Mac universe.

I particularly appreciate the way there is a gently fade in and fade out of work into break and vice-versa. This allows the user to gently go in an out of the different modes.

Other than its use to prevent RSI and dry eyes, or to remind one to adopt a good posture, this software is also useful to reflect on one's current activity. For example, this software can be used to break potentially addicting Internet activities, such as participation in social networks.

This is also the only free alternative I know of for the Mac, and therefore certainly a very good default initial choice.

What's new in version 1.5.4
  • Replaced the use of an undocumented routine to check the idle time with an approved one, to fix compatibility with Snow Leopard.
  • Updated the bundled Adium scripts to support the current versions of the Adium instant messaging client, thanks to Nic Munroe. Note: if you used a previous version of Time Out, the scripts won't be replaced, in case you've customized them. You can download the updated scripts from the Time Out Extras site.
  • Fixed an issue with the Preferences window, where edits might not be saved when quitting with the window still open (specifically when an edit is still active).
  • Removed the old crash reporter, since it doesn't support Leopard crash logs.
  • Now requires a minimum of Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger).
