***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.

I was excited about it but then... The first day I was using it - great! Then I realized that I could not SHUT IT OFF. Sure, I can make it stop buzzing (and allow me to get to sleep) but it opens itself up over anything else I might be doing with my phone - drains the battery like crazy. It's ridiculous, when I close the app, it should stay closed. Not cool. Found another without that problem. Uninstalled.

Great idea... badly executed... uninstall This would be a great app, if it didn't spontaneously pop up every 5 seconds. Super annoying. Had to uninstall.

Pops up without opening it. Kinda frustrating to have this app pop up without setting any alarm at all. I liked it at first but if I can't find a way to stop it from opening on its own and interrupting my phone use I'll have to uninstall.

Good idea, bad execution Refuses to stay down. I keep quitting it but out won't stop coming to the foreground whenever I unlock my phone. Really really annoying!

Good idea ...but it needs a few tweaks...including type-os fixed. I agree with others....it doesn't always shut off when I tell it to and then tried to butt its way in when I'm using other apps.
