Ratings and Reviews
Been using this app for years. No other app quite like it. Pls keep the updates coming!
Almost Perfect. Wish I could lock the routine view to 1, 2, or 3 Days at a time. It's nice to scroll and see unlimited days. Just would like another option.
No free trial and a tedious app. Waste of money.
"Typical time" and the lack of a back button when adding timeslots makes the entire app a chore to use.
I'd like to be able to customize the start AND end times when adding timeslots, but the only way to do this is to finish adding the timeslot at whatever duration it's "typical time" is set to, and then edit the timeslot. Why does there even need to be a typical time, and why do there need to be specific activities. If I want to write for an hour today, but tomorrow I want to write for two hours, why must I create two separate events that each have a different "typical time?" There should just be a "writing" category, with the ability to add events of customizable length under that category or any others.
Wish I could get a refund on this app, and am extremely disappointed I spent money on something that doesn't have a free trial version. Never again.
Been looking for this for a while
This app has been extremely helpful in getting me up and out the door on time in the mornings. My schedule varies day to day, and I used to wing it in my head, saying "it takes me about an hour to get ready, so I should probably wake up here so I can get to my first meeting here," with varied success.
Now, I have all my specific morning routines programmed in, so all I have to do is pick the routine (e.g., exercise or no?), and say that I want to be done by my first meeting. Then I instantly know when I need to wake up, leave the house, and so on. Plus it gives me little reminders as I go.
It's an indispensable part of my morning routine now. Thanks a lot for making this.
