You deserve a break

How do I know when Time OUt has started running?

Hi, Just started to use this wonderful little app! But i've been confused at times if the timer is running yet has started its count down.

As there is no 'start' button, i'm always unsure if its running.

How do you know it is, or what is it that you do that activates it?

Many thanks,

Greg

As soon as you launch Time Out, the break timers start running automatically.

Version 2 will have an optional system menu with a countdown to the next break, which will make it easier to tell what's going on.

If you are curious, you can use the following Terminal command to output information about the break timers to the Console log — definitely not a user-friendly approach, though; this is a diagnostic tool:

defaults write com.dejal.timeout DebugScheduler YES
