Magican Rest is a health-care app, which can rescue people from overworking. It's such a useful tool for you to manage your time. For longtime focusing on work in front of your Mac, you may forget the time and forget to rest. Then you can use Magican Rest to preset the break time range before working. When it works, it will cover your screen with a countdown, and then you can do nothing but leave it as it is, using the time to rest your eyes, to go around, to be with your family or just nap. And don't worry, everything you did will be remains the same once the resting time is over.

Ask me to have a rest when I first turn on the Mac in the morning and no way to skip!

It hasn't micro time out.

Great, simple app. Easy to use and free from all bloatware and unnecessary features. As for the lack of cancel/skip/postpone feature, well you can pause this app to enable you to continue your work uninterrupted, e.g. watching a movie, in midst of chatting/forum, urgent assignment, etc. But beware, you may defeat the purpose of installing this type of app.

no way to cancel. if you have stepped away and have a video playing this takes control of the screen so you cannot see the video and you have to wait for the count down to finish.
there should be a way to cancel.
