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.

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!

Good, but flawed

This app does provide a useful way to view the time in a day. The categories are flexible enough to apply to various activities, especially with the customizable icons. The Apple Health integration is nice for tracking workouts or sleep. The edit mode is intuitive and granular, and I like how easy it is to insert a wedge in between two others.

But the app has a lot of little problems. There is a noticeable delay on the user interface even on a modern iPhone. If you leave the app in edit mode, it stays like that even if you leave the app for hours. When the day changes overnight, the app doesn’t switch over automatically. The complication for Apple Watch doesn’t update properly. It often shows the progress through an activity wrong or the last activity instead of the current one.

It’s a good app. But there are too many little problems for me to vouch for it fully.

Hi kitchen cauldron, thank you so much for taking the time to leave this very thoughtful review of Owaves. We appreciate your positive feedback about the categories, customizable icons, Apple Health integration, and edit mode! We also really appreciate your suggestions for improving the user interface and improving the complication for Apple Watch so there are no delays. Thank you for letting us know you’re experiencing these delays. We will work on making these improvements for future releases. Thank you again, and have a great week! ⏰📱😊
