At the moment, Pausly is free. But we plan on adding a subscription model in the future. Most likely we’ll add company plans because we believe that it’s the employers responsibility to ensure you take enough breaks.
There will be a free quota though, and simply joining sessions as a guest will also be available.
Avatars are handled by gravatar. Visit www.gravatar.com, create an account and upload your avatar there. This has the benefit that your avatar will also popup on other services where you have used the same email address.
That’s definitely something we want to add, but we need to get a certain amount of users before spending the time on that.
Right now we want to make it as simple as possible to join a session, that means not needing to install an app.
You can add friends and activate notifications for individual users. If the other user also follows you back, you will get a notification when they start a session.
At the moment, the best way to get your notifications is to link your Telegram account in the settings. If you don’t use Telegram, you can also setup browser push notifications, but they only work if you browser is open. (Slack & Discord coming soon).
Apart from that, you can create a group on your preferred chat app and simply share the links with your friends.
When you’re on a session page, you have the option to set "Alternative Exercises". This allows you get a new set of exercises that fit your limitations.
But we don’t allow you to simply replace individual exercises because we believe that the exercises we don’t like that much, are often the exercises we should be doing more often.
Pausly is all about group interactions. If everybody starts exchanging individual exercises, then it’s not a shared experience anymore.
Every day we choose a random exercise as the Exercise Of the Day (EOD). This exercise is always in a highlighted color and is present in every session.
