Break Up Your Long Working Day With Stretch (Mac App) [Sponsored Post]



This post is brought to you by SquidMelon, creator of Stretch.

Most of us who work on a computer sit still for up to eight hours a day AND spend half our evenings on the Mac at home. That’s a lot of sitting around doing nothing physical. Stretch by Korean creative developer SquidMelon is a new app that knows when to remind you to take a break and shows you what stretches you should do. Watch the video here….

Stretch is an innovative break reminder app. Nowadays people spend more time working or playing on their Macs but many of us forget to pay attention to taking a break for a stretch!

Our bodies need to move, not sit in front of a Mac all day. Stretch from Korean developer SquidMelon introduces a new way to encourage you to take a break and do some stretches with easy-to-follow and attractive user interfaces.

Stretch calculates your break times and notifies you when to take a break with a modern, beautiful, and nonintrusive break reminder. The app then shows you how to do some stretches from a selection of 40 stretches for every part of the body, using high-quality videos and easy instructions.

Stretch app also provides information on how to keep away from Repetitive Strain Injuries and a pack of guidelines on how to set up your workspace with optimal ergonomics. Stretch gathers statistics on your Mac behavior including mouse clicks, keyboard types, and the length of time you sat using your Mac.

You can customize Stretch according to your own personal style in the Preferences. Stretch shows your next break time in the menu bar, and you can select postures or parts of your aching body that you want to stretch.

Stretch is available on the Apple App Store, price $3.99.
