This Mac app gives you one reminder that will make your day a little healthier

“Stand,” a new app for Mac, has one simple goal: to get you to stand up more often. Every hour, in fact.

Creators Red Davis and Hector Simpson are fans of the the Apple Watch’s reminder to stand up every hour. But they want everyone to get up from their collective desks and move around a bit, not just Apple Watch owners, so they created Stand.

Stand’s interface is simple. You choose when in the hour you want the notification (at 15 past, for example), and Stand pops up a little notification for you. “Time to stand up!”

That’s it. Nothing fancy. But for Mac users without an Apple Watch or standing desk, this kind of simple reminder could be just what they need.

You can download the “pay what you want” app over at its website, or check out its page on Product Hunt.
