Provides occasional and non-intrusive notifications reminders to take screen breaks and prevent eye strain.
Staring at a screen for too long is like holding a heavy box - your eye muscles get tired. Resting your eyes regularly can help avoid headaches, irritated eyes and neck pain. Health experts recommend the 20-20-20 rule: every 20 minutes, look 20 feet away for 20 seconds. Aleye is a reminder tool with customizable options and mini-mindfulness exercises to help you get the most out of your workday. Features: - Set the time between reminders - 20/30/40/50/60 minutes - Set mindfulness and stretching exercises notifications - Set a count to tell you when the 20 second break is over - Set an audio ping alongside the notification About: - Product Lead & Developer: Mihir Parekh (https://www.linkedin.com/in/mdparekh/) - Product Designer: Alex Thompson (https://www.linkedin.com/in/aethompsondesign/) - Inspiration for stretching exercises: Hot Yoga Nottingham (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCyB57n96sMDk27r-ZQm883w) - Sound notification from: https://github.com/kurtextrem/Eye-Care-Chrome - Development inspiration from: https://github.com/redjanym/EyeCare, https://github.com/kurtextrem/Eye-Care-Chrome - If you want to report any bugs or have any ideas for new features, please email me: [email protected] Updates: - 0.0.0.7 - Additional notification messages - Eye yoga introduced (https://yogainternational.com/article/view/4-yoga-exercises-for-eye-strain) - 0.0.0.5/6: Minor bug fixes - 0.0.0.4: Prevents sending notifications once the screen is locked and reduced the volume of the notification sound - 0.0.0.3: Minor bug fixes - 0.0.0.2: Minor grammatical changes
