Great routines are the cornerstone of a great life.
Clever Routines builds on three key principles to help you stay on top of your routines, develop great habits, and drop bad ones:
◆◆◆ INTELLIGENT REMINDERS ◆◆◆
Out of your way, or in your face. Choose from one of three reminder modes to signal how eagerly you want to pursue a routine. Clever Routines will leverage these signals to provide timely reminders that help you stay on top of your routines.
◆◆◆ POWERFUL SCHEDULING ◆◆◆
Scheduling this powerful has never been so easy:
◦ Schedule a routine in just three taps.
◦ Pursue new routines by setting daily, weekly, or monthly goals.
◦ Or set a precise schedule that occurs on specific days, and at specific times.
◆◆◆ REDUCED CLUTTER ◆◆◆
You only see what you need to see. Clever Routines actively hides non-urgent items from the Upcoming view to help you focus on what needs your attention with just a glance.
And that’s just the start. There’s a lot more under the cover:
◇◇◇ INTELLIGENT TIMEZONES ◇◇◇
Clever Routines takes extra care to keep the times you set local, no matter where you travel. That means that your morning routines in San Francisco will remain morning routines when you travel to Tokyo.
◇◇◇ CONFIGURABLE TIMES OF DAY ◇◇◇
Define and label time periods, like mid-evening, and share them across all your routines.
◇◇◇ AUTOMATIC SKIPPING ◇◇◇
Automatically skip routine occurrences you miss. Or automatically move them to the next day until they’re done. Your choice!
Not really for routines
If you are looking for an app to guide you through your daily routines without being tied to time slots, then this app misses the mark. This app is fine for creating a daily schedule, with each task assigned to a specific time; however, the spacious layout makes it difficult to see your entire morning/evening/daily schedule at a glance. It is also fine for reminding you of recurring events or tasks, or noting a hodgepodge of tasks you'd like to do in a general time frame. But if you put tasks in a general time frame - morning, for example - there is no way to keep them in order and the app will list them randomly, not in the order in which you had originally listed them. You cannot create a "do this-then this-then this) morning/evening/daily routine without listing specific time slots for specific tasks, at which point you will not be able to see even the simplest morning routine at a single glance. Each time slot is its own heading, and you can't group them into a specific routine. I would love to be able to make a morning routine (Shower, then check calendar, then breakfast, then chores...) without assigning specific times, but with the ability to assign durations (1 hour of chores, for example). As is, the app doesn't work for organizing my routines at all.
I really like the layout of this app and the simplicity of it. I, too, would like a history and progress feature, so I can keep track of how often I do something. Also, I can't figure out how to get weekly routines to refresh. My daily ones refresh each day, but weekly routines I seem to have to delete and reset. Definitly don't like that. I have emailed the creator, but haven't heard back on this issue yet. Support link in the app store goes to the developer page that has no support funtion. I initially downloaded this to replace a habit making app that expired on Jan. 1. I'm trying a few habit apps right now and want this to be my favorite. There are just these few little irritations about the app.
An easy way to manage things I do regularly
This app was a good find. It has a really clean and easy way to add and manage things I do on a regular basis.
What I really like about this app is that scheduling a new routine is very fast... or I can make the scheduling as complex as I need it to be.
Another neat feature is the ability to set the level of how frequent the app reminds you to do something. It's sometimes that extra push that motivates you to get things done.
