***Desk Job? Sit too Long and Often? Did you know sitting can be deadly in the long run?
********* StandApp Helps Combat "Sitting Disease" ********

Millions of Americans lead sedentary lifestyles (sitting for 9+ hours a day) due to desk jobs, or inactivity. Recent studies performed by the CDC(Center for Disease Control and Prevention) suggest that sedentary lifestyles lead to a host of health risks.
These risks include; obesity, cardiovascular disease, poor cholesterol, high blood pressure, breast and colon cancer, type 2 diabetes, and overall higher mortality rate. Due to the high health risks of compounded extended sitting, it's time for people to take a pro-active approach to maintaining a healthy and active life.

StandApp promotes healthy living by providing an alarm reminder to stand up and take a break from your desk.
StandApp includes 15 easy exercises anyone can perform at their desk during their standing breaks.
You can set the reminder interval to a custom time, we recommend a break at least every hour.

Experts say avoiding the sedentary life is mostly about remembering to be active. Even people who work a desk job for 60 hours each week can still work movement into their days — getting up for a cup of water instead of keeping one at your desk, walking down the hall to talk to a colleague rather than sending an email. StandApp keeps you accountable to this task.

Good idea, high quality videos, horrible implementation It's impossible to make the app silent, this is very necessary at work place. The app keeps opening up randomly any time during the night. Uninstall!

Good idea, poor usability I'm still going use it but I can't pause the timer, it shows the same exercise each time, and the standing break overlaps the sitting timer.

Runs whether you want it or not. I installed on a Saturday to try on Monday at work. It started itself 4 times..... uninstalled. That's annoying.

There's no notification? It would be better if you could customize the alert. If there's a way to do this I've missed it. It uses the same ring tone as my email so the first time it went off I didn't even realize it.

Awesome idea, horrible implementation I heard about this app from an iPhone user who loves it. I would have liked to see some arm/wrist/hand stretches. Also, the replay icon covers up a lot of the text in the videos, including timing counts. I also had the same problem others mentioned with the app refusing to quit/stay exited. The constant popups forced me to uninstall. Sad, because I've been looking for an app like this for some time. Please fix!
