Get Up – Work Break Timer

Get up - work break timer app for iphone and ipad
Get Up – Work Break Timer will help you take those short, but important “activity breaks” during your work day.

The chair is a killer! So take a break every 20-30 minutes. Get up and move your feet – and your body! – for a minute or two (or more if you have the time). Your body will thank you!

Imagine the 9 squares on the floor and follow the moving feet (and hands) on the screen. You can do the activity breaks with or without the BALANCE option (when shown on the screen; balance on one foot) and with or without the HANDS option (when shown on the screen; bend down to touch the floor with your hand).

New in version 1.1

You can now choose between 3 colors for the interface on the main screen (blue, red or green).

How Get Up – Work Break Timer works


  • Set your daily work break goal (number of breaks/day)
  • Set the timer to remind you to Get Up and take a break

When it’s time to take a break:

  • Choose “move feet mode” (random or left-right)
  • Select/deselect the HANDS option
  • Select/deselect the BALANCE option
  • Set HANDS frequency
  • Set BALANCE frequency
  • Set SPEED (from “almost slow motion” to “almost impossibly fast”)
  • Set break DURATION (1 to 5 minutes with 30 seconds increments)
  • Start the Activity Break


  • See today’s work break achievement (number of breaks and your achievement for HANDS, BALANCE, SPEED and TIME)
  • See your achievement (number of work breaks) for the last 7 seven days, that you have used the app
