Lost all my settings
After spending about 45 minutes adding my own custom photos and icons, when I clicked on a different day choice, then came back to the main one I had been customizing, all of my customized settings were gone. My schedule remained the same, and some of the icons I had changed remained in the right side circle choices, but the big circle had lost all of my custom photos and the custom icons I had change them to just moments before. It has been working great until I went to the bottom and clicked on alternate days I only have three days saved so I know I am not on the wrong day. I realize this is a new app but this was very frustrating as I spent quite a bit of time customizing this. I think once you get the bugs out of this this will be a very interesting planner especially for people with a DHD or very visual people. I wish you would make it available on IMAX and laptops also so they could sync up with your phone. It is always easier to set things up on a laptop or computer. I tried changing one of the icons again and it saved and looked great then when I went to the bottom of the screen hit the plus button and chose one of the other two days then went back to the same day I had justCustomized, my customized icon again was gone so this must be a bug. Please keep working on this I think you are onto something great I had actually invented in my own mind then saw a video that was telling about the app.

I LOVE THIS APP
There is something so calming to glance at my phone and see a big square that says "Eat Greens" and then "Bill Pay" to remind me what I'm doing now, and what I plan to do next. I'm guessing probably around 90% of the users of this app have ADHD because it's like it was built with us in mind, down to the day planned in a circle which is how I didn't even realize I view time. Setting it up was easy-peasy and creating day plans in the morning is so much fun I don't always use the "repeat every" feature, which I could. I like the reminders to play, and to eat, and to have free time without guilt or spinning my wheels trying to remember what I'm doing next.
I'm a preschool teacher and have used visual schedules for years, and have tried other scheduling apps like this. This one was recommended and while I don't necessarily *need* another neurodivergent-friendly app, Owaves is totally worth it. After trying to fit my days into a 24-hour box and getting frustrated when I'd fail every time, this simple little drag-and-drop round clock day planning app recognizes my struggles with time-blindness and speaks my language and gently reminds me of where I am now and where I was planning to go next. Plus the kid is ridiculously happy with the gorgeous colors. Love this app.
Made for ADHD
I’ve experimented with various apps over the past two years since finding out about my ADHD. While many apps are fantastic, none of them stuck. This app was exactly what I was looking for. I’m very visual and object-oriented, so the clock style layout of each day blew my mind.
I have ADHD. This app is phenomenal for building routines and habits, and I’ve found having the Owaves widget (specifically the progress bar) has helped me better understand my time limitations for each activity. Try to time yourself doing an activity, so you know exactly how much time to allocate for your schedule. Be honest with yourself! It’s transformed my time management abilities.
The customization is simple and easy to use, but the ability to include custom images for each activity was a game changer for me. When you assign a custom image to an activity, it will display in the center of your clock for the entire activity. So if you include a picture of the activity being performed (i.e. someone solving a math problem if the activity is “Study for Math Exam”), it’s easier to visualize yourself completing that task. I found some really pretty art that I assigned to studying, exercising, reading, etc., so you can make your clock look quite engaging.
