Effortlessly take control of your day with Hour Blocks, a day planner app that’s both simple and beautiful. Whether you’re a student or a small business owner, Hour Blocks is the organisational tool that’s missing from your day-to-day life.

Hour Blocks presents a chronological timeline of your next 48 hours, allowing you to focus on what’s truly next, rather than crowding you with anything and everything you have coming up in your life.

Simply tap on an Hour Block, type in what you have planned, and you’re done- with a nice icon automatically generated for you. You don’t have to abandon using the Calendar app either, as Hour Blocks automatically pulls in events from your calendar.

Every part of the Hour Blocks experience has been developed to make it as satisfying as possible for you to use. From the playful language to the laid back colour scheme, organising your day doesn’t feel like a chore.

Good Concept

I like the idea for simplifying day planing but could the reminders not include a sound alarm and be a little more ‘in your face’

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your positive feedback! Reminders are going through an overhaul so hopefully future updates will be more in line with what you're looking for 😁

Great way to keep organised

Very simple, and very focused which is great. Request to the developer. I have multiple calendars (family, work, colleagues) would it be possible to select which ones are displayed? This would make a big difference to me.
(Edit) New version includes this feature - thanks to the developer. Maybe there is some way to buy you a coffee for your efforts :-)

Developer Response ,

Edit: Appreciate that! No worries, this one's on me 😁

Thank you so much for your positive review! This has been a heavily requested feature and I can now confirm that I've finished implementing it and it should be with you all in the next few days! All the best 😊

Amazing for revision organisation!

I’m so glad I downloaded this app, I’m able to plan my revision for the next two days easily and make sure I’m on top of it and not running behind, I also don’t get too stressed about how much there is to do as you only see the next 48 hours. Love this app so much 💕

Developer Response ,

Thank you for the kind words! Hope your positive experience with the app continues 😊
