Description

MemoAssist is a calendar app that you can use to give you overview, structure and reminders of events throughout the day. You can add images, text and sounds to each event.

MemoAssist is based on an empty calendar where you yourself enter the events you need. In each event, you can insert images from the photo folder, camera roll, or take pictures directly with the app. Record sound, set title, text descriptions, select duration, repetition and warning sound. You can create step-by-step guides consisting of images, sound and text for each of the activities.

TARGET GROUP
MemoAssist can be a good tool for those who need overview, structure, predictability and reminders in everyday life. It can apply to people with ADHD, autism spectrum disorders, and people who have difficulty in concentration and memory. It gives reminders related to the tasks until it is checked as completed, making it harder to overlook tasks to be performed.

The app has a neutral layout and fits all age groups. It is flexible and you add all content yourself, making it easy to adapt to individual needs.


TIPS AND IDEAS
- Create guides when you have a sequence of actions in routine situations, such as dress. Add images of the clothing to be taken and record the corresponding audio instructions.
- Motivation: Use the Awards feature. Enter an image that is divided into x number of tiles. For each task performed, a piece is put in place. Once the image is finished, it can trigger an award.
- Co-determination and affiliation: Let the children choose / take pictures themselves and record the sound they want to use in their calendar.
- Language understanding: Use it as visual and auditory support to understand events and routines throughout the day and use guides that show step-by-step activities, such as daytime rhythms in a kindergarten, schedule at school or the procedure in a task.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
The app has a clear and simple user interface that makes it easy to use. Start by adding new events with the desired content and settings. When you start an activity in the calendar, a time wheel that counts down appears and you can check the activity when you're done. The audio support can be played as many times as you want. A gray dotted vertical time line appears next to the day, which turns red as time goes by. This provides good visual support for the perception of time.

Reminders can be seen on an Apple Watch and marked as finished on the clock.

SETTINGS / FEATURES
- Select color codes for the different days
- Digital or classic clock, on / off timer
- Enable / disable notification and sound
- iBeacons: Enable tasks related to a particular location, e.g. brush your teeth when you are in the bathroom.
- Additional app: MemoRemote: Remote control MemoAssist via iCloud. Add appointments and reminders.
- Activate the scoring system: Create motivation to use the calendar. Gives points for each activity marked as completed.
- Awards: Collect pieces for each task done, and eventually form an image and give a chosen reward.

God app, men..

Jeg kunne bare godt bruge en advarselsalarm? Så man kunne sætte mødeaftaler ind bl.a. Så man lige fik et “heads up” når man skal til møder 😊 jeg er ikke god til at åbne appen hver dag..

Developer Response ,

Tak for din anmeldelse. Vi har nu tilføjet en funktion så du netop kan få en alarm f.eks et kvarter før. Du kan indstille det forskelligt fra begivenhed til begivenhed. Mvh Magnus

Dyr app med væsentlige mangler

Jeg er langt fra at være begejstret for 'Husketavlen'. Som lærer for børn og unge med autismespektrumdiagnoser fik jeg den anbefalet af en kollega, som jeg værdsætter fagligt.

Derfor købte og downloadede jeg trygt 'Husketavlen' på App Store, selvom den til 499 kr. er det dyreste softwarekøb, jeg hidtil har gjort på app-fronten.

Imidlertid viste det sig, at jeg købte katten i sækken, og at jeg på det kraftigste må advare potentielle kunder mod at købe 'Husketavlen'.

Der er to årsager til, at 'Husketavlen' ikke er pengene værd, og de hænger begge sammen med billedsiden. Denne her app er et visualiseringsværktøj - en selvskabt billedkalender - som er beregnet til at hjælpe brugeren effektivt igennem sine dage og uger.

Derfor må eventuelle købere af 'Husketavlen' forvente et stort udvalg af relevante billeder og billedforklaringer (piktogrammer). Men her skuffer app'en, for udvalget er fornærmende begrænset. Det er bestemt ikke her, der er blevet spenderet udviklingspenge.

Denne basale mangel, kan brugeren dog selv til dels kompensere for, da der er mulighed for at tage og sætte egne fotos og billedserier ind som ikoner i hans eller hendes dag- og ugeplan på 'Husketavlen'.

Men igen viser det sig, at der er tale om et stykke uigennemtænkt, ikke færdigudviklet software. For skaleringsfunktionen fungerer ikke ordentligt, og det er ikke muligt at tilpasse egne fotografier til kalenderen. Dels når det kommer til størrelse og afstand (zoom) men lige så vigtigt af fotografiernes kvalitet (billedskarphed). Disse elementære funktionalitetsmangler skærer ekstra i øjnene på brugeren, når brugerens egne ikoner kommer til at stå side om side med 'Husketavlens' alt for få, men skarpe og velproportionerede, indbyggede piktogrammer.

Mange af de børn, unge og voksne, som er ramt af autismespektrumforstyrrelser, er socialt og økonomisk marginaliserede. Hvis man bare har lidt anstændighed i livet, så laver man en ordentlig, funktionel og æstetisk løsning til dem, når man vil sælge dem en app til 499 kr.
