Finally, a calendar that sees time like I do!

I was amazed to find this app, and it is very promising. I am an adult who struggles with ADHD, and finding the right tools to help keep me ‘plugged in’ to the 24-hour clock is very difficult.

Imagine my surprise when I found Owaves, an app that represents time in the *exact same way* that I’ve imagined it visually since I was a small child! This app is easy to use and I LOVE the ability to customize day plan templates.

What does confuse me is that the updates appear to be out-of-sync between the iPad and iPhone, at least for me. I have the latest versions for an iPhone 8 and an iPad Pro (2018), but the iPad version lacks many of the features present on the phone (e.g., icon customization). The two apps also do not sync, which is frustrating. With more functionality updates, this will become my go-to tool for time management.

Hello Merplestillskin,

First off..what a funny username choice 🤣! Second, we are beyond stoked that Owaves was what you've always looked for. What a serendipitous thing life can be..

To address your concern we are actively planning iPad sync! We have been wanting it as a team for a very long time but had bigger fish to fry (so-to-speak) but it is looking like we will be able to accommodate this feature in a coming release. You can stay in the loop with our updates at ✨

We look forward to you being a valued user of Owaves and hope to keep you happy! Take care 🙃!

Flexible, Easy to navigate

I love having a digital planner! I’m a freelancer, stay at home mom, and overall busy person. Having a planner I can keep on my phone is awesome! I used to write everything in a notebook, but then between baby and life, wouldn’t have what I needed to remind myself of appointments or tasks.

With the app, I set it, note it, and can make an alarm for whatever it is, all on one happy spot. I love that I can customize the icons, so I can make it really all about me. I rarely save day plans because my days are so fluid, but having that option is great.

I sit down each night and set my Owaves for the next day, which helps me make sure to make time for myself, fitness, and overall, I’ve been able to manage my time and life so much better. It’s so easy, and has been a lifesaver!

Cumbersome and convoluted.

It is such a pain to enter anything! It’s a beautiful app, clearly they focused on looks. It’s a shame no attention was given to how someone would actually use it.

I tried to put in my work hours - you have to drag the work icon to the circle and then drag the color block around until you get it where you need it, then turn the circle so you can expand to your end time. When I tried to add my lunch I realized I couldn’t just insert it... I have to go back and move my work time and add another work time on the other side of lunch. You cannot just select and change the times. You have to drag things around the circle. The first few times didn’t bother me so much but it gets old REALLY fast. And if things change, you have to go in and adjust everything by dragging. I just don’t understand why they wouldn’t add a feature letting you type in times.

Developer Response ,

Hi Celena324, You brought up two very important points that our UX team is currently working on:

1) The ability to insert a new activity inside an existing segment on the O

2) The addition of a time picker. We are queuing in both of these ASAP. Meanwhile, we'd love for you to see the editing improvements we made to version 2.1 and let us know if you think we've done better?
