Nothing not to like -- you have two timeouts which you can change for duration, change color (helps me know which is which) and if you happen to need to override it is simple -- or you can postpone it. You can control the pre and exit times as well.

I downloaded and thought I'd not like it but find it is very helpful to break up work sessions and remember to flex the eyes (with the short breaks) or get up and walk and get away from desk (with the longer breaks).

Well worth a donation in my opinion!

Actually $49.99 on Mac App Store not $99 as currently stated on MacUpDate. Looks like it might work similar to Busy Cal but adds contact/address book integration (and optional sync service and optional iPhone and iPad shared files) but hard to know without buying as there is no demo unfortunately.

Very nice, lots of options to play with so there is variety. Worth the time and the price is definitely right!

Folks that did or are still trying to use Automaton and auto typer (it still works as of 10.8.4 but it is losing some access in panes and some things are not working as well as we progress up the OSX update hierarchy). You can import DIRECTLY with aText the Typer.autotyper file from user/library/application support/automaton/ folder.
aText imports the macro or snippet formatting, the label, the abbreviation and is much better than exporting the CSV file from Automaton/AutoTyper and then importing into aText.

If you use the snippet/typer feature a lot like I did..
Automaton and auto typer still work as of 10.8.4 but it is losing some access in panes and some things are not working as well as we progress up the OSX update hierarchy. The developer has stopped supporting. There is another macro program that can import the Typer.autotyper file from user/library/application support/automaton/ called aText. It imports the macro or snippet formatting, the label, the abbreviation and is much better than exporting the CSV file from Automaton/AutoTyper and then importing into aText -- aText has good support and is not expensive.

although on here the version stops at 1.5, 1.7 is on their website with a free serial number if you want to check it out.

The developer continues to make frequent changes and I've had several emails back and forth over the last few months. He seems sincere in his desire to try to make the program work for as many ideas as possible -- this is not to be dismissed too lightly these days -- many developers are very set in their ways or don't get back or take any suggestions. He is also polite.

The issues under 10.6.8 seem to have been resolved but I have also moved on to 10.7 -- and the program works very well with Lion.

I find myself using it all the time. And I've looked at other products but still come back to this one for daily stuff. It doesn't do every last thing -- but more complex applications can be used when needed -- this is very helpful for basic day to day and I actually put it to use day to day -- a big plus, no program as nice or fancy as they may be does you much use if you don't actually continue to use it.

There are many of these to-do and task managers out there, but spend some time with this one -- you might be pleasantly surprised and find it very proactive like I did over time..

It is not dirt cheap, but for me the cost is well offset by the fact it gets put to work on a regular basis.

Reliable software, works so good I use it like second nature, a developer that is responsive and works along with you -- that's a A in my book.

I sometimes follow software and want to try it. One version may not be the same as a newer -- sometimes worth a revisit. This software seems to see I've tired a prior trial and will not allow me to try the new version as a trial. A bit of a nuisance as you have to go thru all the hoops of sending them your name and email in order to just be denied.
