PDF Print E-mail

Working continuously for long periods can make you feel tired and exhausted, which may result in bringing down the overall productivity. Taking small breaks during work keeps the mind fresh, and enables you to perform better. BreakTaker is an application that reminds you to take breaks while you are working on your PC. You can set the number of minutes after which a message pops up, reminding you to take a break. The application suggests different ways to take a break i.e, taking a walk or stretching your neck.

The application works from system tray. First off, right-click its icon and choose Settings to configure BreakTaker. The Settings menu allows you to set the Notification delay (in minutes), configure options such as Pause timer when PC is locked, Show Welcome window, enable/disable Sound and change notification theme. Once done, click Save button.

When the timer is up, BreakTaker will display a notification at the bottom right of your computer screen, reminding you to take a break. Click I did it after taking the break or No thanks to ignore the message. If you click No Thanks, you will be reminded again to take a break after five minutes. The application suggests different ways to take a break e.g stretching, taking a walk outside, getting a glass of water etc.


BreakTimer looks similar to previously reviewed Time4Breax, but that is a bit advanced application, as it automatically locks the computer screen if you ignore the take break message. BreakTimer works on Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7.
