Pace Overview

What is Pace? Pace is a break software designed to help computer users avoid muscle pain, eye strain, headaches, CVS, or RSI by taking regular breaks to refresh their body and mind. It offers short and long breaks, and users can skip or snooze a break if they're not ready to pause typing. Pace has standard features that are free, including multi-display support and appearing in the menu bar. Advanced features are available with a one-time in-app purchase, such as customizing the frequency and length of breaks, setting limits on the number of skips and snoozes, and pausing breaks during screen sharing, meetings, or presentations. The app was created by a software engineer who suffers from RSI and wanted a break software that was smart enough to know when it's professionally inappropriate for a break.

Pace Features and Description

1. No need to be embarrassed by a break appearing in the midst of your presentation or while you’re remotely sharing your screen.

2. It ensures you take regular breaks to refresh your mind and body, while not interrupting your meetings, presentations, or screen sharing sessions.

3. While you may need to work at your computer for hours at a time, that doesn’t mean that you need to suffer with muscle pain, eye strain, headaches, CVS, or RSI.

4. You can skip or snooze a break if you’re not quite ready to pause typing when the break screen displays.

5. When I forget to turn break software off, I have to explain the break screen to the person I’m working with.

6. I created Pace because I wanted a break software that was smart enough to know when it is professionally inappropriate for a break.

7. Advanced features allow you set limits on how many times a day you can skip or snooze a break.

8. Regular brief breaks refresh your body and your mind leading to improved productivity and creativity.

9. I work remotely and use screen sharing apps frequently.

10. I’m committed to adding user-desired features to Pace.

11. You determine your level of self-discipline and the support you need from Pace.

Software Reviews and Criticism

    Better than the rest and at a great price!

    I like this app and use it every day to avoid getting stuck in front of my computer. Other programs offer similar features, but this offering is simple and reasonably priced. I tried several similar apps and this is the best one for my needs. I like how it detects when I take a break voluntarily and rewards me when I come back from a long break. FIVE STARS for sure! As with any app, there are always a few more features that would be nice. For example, I'd like to be able to customize the notifications. These essential warnings keep me from getting frustrated at the program for interrupting my work. I usually dislike notifications, in this case I need them and want more control. Ideally, I'd set a notification at 20 and 10 seconds before each break. Other fantasy features could include, working with multiple screens, longer fade-in before breaks and a customizable break screen photo. Personally, I'd use a picture from my last vacation to relax me and motivate me to stay healthy and focused during my break. For anyone seeking a simple way to encourage regular breaks from the computer, this is the best product I could find!

    Pretty good, but could use some changes

    I like Pace for the most part. I haven't yet upgraded because the timings are good enough for me to try it out. Sadly I have to stop using Pace because a giant white screen flashing up to force a break is too eye searing most of the time. I'll keep any eye on updates. Maybe if I could set the break screen colors I'd switch back to it (and I'd be willing for that to be in the IAP). Pace also suffers from the same thing every other typing timer suffers from, interruptions. While writing code I know I need to take a typing break, but interrupting a thought process is the worst. At least one other timer I use pops up a "break is coming" notification so I can know to prepare for a break rather than just being blind-sided by it. Update: I had disabled Pace. I told it not to start at login and made sure it wasn't in my login items. It still insists on starting. For now it's deleted. I will check back on it in a while to see what updates come along, but for now I just can't recommend it.

    Cannot configure without purchasing

    As a developer I can appreciate the need to keep the lights on, but as-is this app is useless even for evaluation. Not a good first impression, and I’m not inclined to give it a second chance.

    OS X 10.11.3 update fixed the crash.

    I’m a happy Pace user again. The app hasn’t been updated in a while, and it was crashing on launch in 10.11.2, but the OS update to .3 fixed it. So I’m back to using Pace every day as a reminder to stop slouching and get up and move every once in a while, and it works great.
