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. So stay tuned!

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

I love this app. It’s just what I’ve been looking for.
I just really wish that you could set the time more precise and not only all 15min. My classes start at times like 9:55 and it will be nice if I could place it exactly there.
I would also like to add more activities and not just choose from the few that are given.
Or maybe add subelements to an activity. For example you have exercise and then you can add jogging or cycling as an under category.

Hello there,

Thank you for the love! 😍 We totally understand the need for a more precise degree of incrementation when planning. This is feedback we have aggregated from multiple users and so we will definitely consider adding it into our pipeline!

As far as being able to add custom activities we have released a feature called Create-a-Button which does exactly that! Please check it out! Unfortunately that doesn't account for secondary activities, that is something else entirely that we will address as well.

We hope you continue to enjoy Owaves! Please keep an eye on our updates so you can take advantage of all that we offer. 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!
