Time Out is a feature-rich Mac utility that lets you know when it's time to take a break from your work. This application comes in handy if you work on a computer for many hours, on a daily basis, and wish to be reminded when it's time to step away from your monitor and relax your eyes or take a short walk.
The program gives you access to dozens of reminder customizations. For instance, you can define two types of breaks: a normal one (5 or 10 minutes at every hour) to take a walk and a micro break (10-20 seconds at every 20 minutes) to relax your eyes. This is just an example, you can create your own break profiles, each with its own time details, description, and actions if necessary (fade-out sound, display notifications, etc.).
An important advantage is that you can configure the app to automatically skip breaks when a certain utility is frontmost. For example, you can select Skype as an excluded tool. The application won't display any reminder notifications while you're in a conference call.
Another great thing is the fact that you can define global hotkeys for immediately skipping breaks, starting countdown, postponing time out, etc.
To sum it all up, Time Out proves to be a smart addition to your collection of Mac apps if you constantly need to be reminded when it's time for a break from your work. The utility is very intuitive, has plenty of useful settings, and comes with a fair price.
