Seamless setup and minimal interface
The installation process is a piece of cake, as it does not offer to download or add any products that are not actually necessary for the app to function properly, and it is over in a jiffy. The interface you are met with is very simple and non-obtrusive, as it goes in the system tray from the first launch. It is suitable to all types of users, including those with little or no previous experience with computers.
Configuring breaks and testing them
This software utility enables you to create short and long breaks, so that you can rest your eyes and ultimately become more productive. By right-clicking the systray icon, you bring up a context menu which enables you to pause monitoring, open the settings panel and quit EyeLeo.
It is possible to test short and long breaks, so that you know what to expect. Aside from that, you should know that you can configure your long break to take up to 7 minutes, while the short break only lasts for 10 seconds and usually involve eye exercises so that your eyes relax. Whichever you choose, it is possible to adjust the time interval at which to take the breaks and you can enable or disable sounds.
Conclusion and performance
It does not require many resources and thus, it is not going to put a strain on the system’s performance and you can run it alongside other program without facing difficulties. All tasks are performed quite fast, while the interface is accessible to all users, and no errors or crashes have been registered in our tests.
Taking all of this, we can safely say EyeLeo is an efficient and reliable piece of software, which reminds individuals to take breaks and increases your efficiency.
