Software Reviews and Criticism

  • By R33d79

    Ok, Ok, I’ll finally leave a review, you deserve it.

    So here’s the deal. I’ve used Recess for quite a while now. It is an INTEGRAL part of my day. I have some back problems because of an injury years ago and this app is a lifesaver in helping to remind me to move around. I have an Autonomous motorized desk and I raise and lower it ever 30 min or so. This keeps me moving and not sedentary which is huge for my health and well-being. It is the simplest of apps and it works perfectly. There is absolutely nothing that I would change about it. As a UX designer, I don’t say that about a lot of things. This is a simple app that solves a problem perfectly and I highly recommend it.

    Lightweight, efficient

    This is a good, lightweight app at reminding one to take a break. I say “lightweight” because one just sees its icon in the title bar, and at a glance one can see how long it is until the next break. My only complaint is that when it’s almost time to start a break, it warns the user of that 10 seconds before, and it steals my cursor focus. That does have the good effect of forcing me to notice that a break is coming. However, I can’t finish typing the sentence I’m typing without taking a hand off the keyboard to use the mouse to get the focus back onto the window I’m working in — that’s annoying. The user can change the length of time between breaks and the length of the break, but I wish the user could also change the time between the warning and the actual break from 10 seconds to, say, 30 seconds. I usually like to note (on my computer) that I’m taking a break and save my work before I get up. 10 seconds (less because I have to use the mouse to get focus back) is just barely time for that. But this is my favorite take-a-break app.

    I would urge anyone who works on computer to get this

    To save your body and your eyesight, breaks are crucial. But we ALL get caught up in work and lose track of time. This is a super simple, streamlined app. Just a simple timer. I only docked the 5th star because I wish it had options for the return to work bell. It IS in fact that old time recess is over sound. Pretty obnoxious and if you work with other people, liable to bug them too.

    Increases my productivity via relaxation

    With this app I take a 3 minute break every 30 minutes. Every break I change me seating position, drink some water, and rest my eyes. This helps me refreshed and relaxed. In turn, I think I’m actually more productive. The app is great — it’s simple to use, not bloated with dumb features or microtransactions, and works as promised. Allows for great customization (duration, etc.) and the pause feature is 💯.
