Looking for a great clock app? MyDay&Clock is a simple, large and easy to read clock that clearly displays the full day of the week, month, date and part of the day in large letters, without confusing abbreviations. MyDay&Clock is great for seniors! MyDay&Clock provides structure, routine and focus for people faced with memory loss, Dementia or Alzheimer’s, who often lose the ability to recognize what day it is. MyDay&Clock has a clear and large display that helps reduce anxiety about the time of day and ease the worry of missing an appointment, mealtime, birthday, a favorite TV program, or any other event. Add comforting photos to the display or add calendar events from personal, family or shared calendars in the Calendar App. Displayed on an iPad with a stand, MyDay&Clock is invaluable for the visually impaired or anyone who wants to easily see the time/day/day of week or calendar events for the day.
Display Calendar Events – choose from a list of the Calendars you have set up in the Calendar App. Choose the number of events to show, Small/Medium/Large type or, as a reminder have MyDay&Clock flash upcoming events. Use "Shared" Calendars to be able to add/remove/edit Events remotely.
Give a calendar the name "Reminders" and these entries will be displayed without times. For example, a Reminder with a Start Time of 10:00 AM and End Time of 10:30 AM could say "Did you take your morning pill?". It would only display during the set time. An "All Day" Reminder could say "Tomorrow is Sue's Birthday", and would be displayed all day.
Name a Calendar "Birthdays and Holidays" to add your own special "All Day" events to be displayed.
Display Photos – MyDay&Clock gives you the ability to display photos from Albums you have set up on your iPad or iPhone. Choose an Album or Albums to display and the amount of time you want each photo to display.
Auto-Dimming On/Off – the display automatically dims at 7:00PM and brightens at 6:00AM by default but these values are customizable. Auto-dimming settings from “Light” to “Extra Dark” are available as well as turning Auto-dimming Off/On/Always On.
Personal Greeting On/Off – an on/off setting is available as well as the ability to add a name to the message. Making the display more personal and comforting is easy by adding a name to the “Good Morning”, “Good Evening”, “Good Afternoon” and “Good Night” message. Parts of the day begin at: Morning 4:00AM, Afternoon 12:00 Noon, Evening 5:00PM, and Night 10:00PM.
Protection from accidental changes – changing the MyDay&Clock settings can be set to require a double-tap on the "Settings" button, keeping users from inadvertently making changes or getting confused.
Power "Not Connected" Indicator – we recommend that your device be connected to power while MyDay&Clock is in use. An indicator is displayed if the device is not connected to power. We also recommend the use of a stand.
Time Formats – MyDay&Clock supports AM/PM and 24-hour time display. Although the app is not currently translated to languages other than English and Dutch, it supports displaying the Day, Time, and Date in the current Region setting. Event times are also displayed using the current Region format. Event titles are displayed in the same language that they are input in.
Privacy – MyDay&Clock does not collect any user data or display ads.
Minor bug fixes
Date/Time display respects Region setting

Wonderful family clock
It is a simple app, but it actually works (unlike many) Google calendar integration is not perfect, but that seems to be an Apple issue rather then their problem, as the native apple calendar worked perfectly.
Isn’t it obvious that most seniors with dementia will not remember English. Diverse language support should be the number one priority for an app available on the internet and aimed at the oldest people in the world.
Great clock App!
I love the large display of the time and date. It's easy to customize to show a personal greeting, photos or events from your calendar. Works great on my iPad and iPhone. I highly recommend this app!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
