Rest Time for Mac1.33

29 April 2021

Simple and elegant break reminder.

What is Rest Time for Mac

Rest Time is a small, simple, elegant and unobtrusive break reminder. Taking regular rest breaks away from your computer is essential for remaining focused, maintaining your energy levels throughout the day and preventing discomfort and repetitive strain injuries. Rest Time lives under an icon in your Mac's menu bar and detects for how long you have been working without requiring privileged access that might put your privacy as well as your internet security at risk.

  • Intelligent Activity Monitoring - Dumb timers are annoying. That's why Rest Time is clever: It will never start a timer when you're not actually at your Mac and it will detect when you have taken a break without needing any prodding. Unlike other tools, Rest Time does so without requiring you to give it the dreaded "Access for Assistive Devices", which would lay you wide open for key logging and risking your privacy, as well as your internet security.
  • Chilltastic Breaks - During a break Rest Time takes over your display and shows you a relaxing animation that gets you straight into a chill-out mood. While it locks the screen to gently force you away from your Mac, the unique time lock button allows to unlock it with only a little of fuss but a lot of guilt.
  • Your Companion, Not Your Boss - Rest Time recognizes that there are times when taking a break is not an option and allows you to disable its countdown for up to 12 hours. This allows you to safely get it out of your way during presentations or other times when its use might be inappropriate without having to quit it and likely forget about it altogether.
  • Simple and Elegant - Rest Time reminds you to take breaks and has everything it needs to do so well; and nothing else. The resulting design is uncomplicated and easy to live with, day in day out.

The app is just "ok", IMO. My issues with it are:

* The menu bar icon is distracting with its countdown timer always going. There should be an option to disable that part. It would save horizontal space as well.

* The "gimmick" to keep you from ending your break early is silly/annoying.

* The interface controls from clicking on the menu icon are clunky

* It uses more CPU and memory compared to competitors.

I'm always on the lookout for apps better than the ones I already have, but in this case, I still prefer BreakTime, which can also be found here on MacUpdate.

Pros: very quick to setup and start using, clean looking and intuitive Cons: ummm, I've not found any. Killer feature is the option to end your break early, but it's only an option for a brief moment every 15 seconds. This app does exactly what I want in a break reminder, it forces me to pause and think about my work and my workday every so often, and I don't lose any time fiddling around with settings. I can set it and forget it and do my work. Another nice app from a great developer.
