Audio fade in and fade out at break starts and ends

Currently when the CALM style breaks begin and end the audio turns on or off (making it sound like an aggressive cutoff). It would be great if we could get gentle fade-ins and fade-outs implemented. Thoughts?

Randomizing and/or setting the Calm scene

Hello!

Love what you've done with the new Time Out! Great work! Quick question/suggestion:

Is there a way to randomize or permanently setting the scene which gets displayed when the CALM time out turns on? Currently it always defaults to the mountain lake view, and to change it I have to manually change it each time. Is there a way to randomize it? Or for other breaks set it to a specific one?

Thanks!
David

breaks on Mac OS 10.11.5 don't happen

At the end of the timer count, the timer resets and there is no break.

I added a test break that breaks every 1 minute for 10 seconds. Notice that when the break should start, it just goes into the countdown timer again.

Here is the console output:
2016-07-06 2:30:54.037 PM Time Out[52018]: Untitled break due now (scheduled)

larger break controls

I do stretching in my breaks.
I might break for 2 minutes and do 4 stretches for 30 seconds each.

Would be great to be able to make the break control count down larger so I can read it further away from my monitors

Breaks not resetting

My breaks are not resetting when my screen is locked.

I have already added Time Out to the accesibility settings as instructed, and the Natural Break Detection Method is set to Event Monitor.

I would like to know how to solve this i.e. I want the natural break detection to work even with Lock screen, or a lid close event.

Keyboard capture not working

Hello guys,

Love being now a paying supporter, don't feel like cheating anymore! :-)
I found that the application doesn't seem to be capturing keyboard interactions.
I mean, the countdown pauses while typing, like I where in a natural break, this doesn't happens with mouse movements. I haven't verified this yet, but it seems this is happening to me now that I am on the Apple Store version, I think it was working properly with the individual installer.

Can this be fixed?
Best regards,
Paul

Spotify Reminder to play music

Is there a way to have it remind me to play Spotify if there is no Audio in use? Like for example: After 15mins of no audio in use, display notification to play music.

I suffer from ADD and everyday I have my headphones on, and I don't listen to music, because I forget to press play on Spotify.

Any help wold be amazing!
Thanks!
