Ratings and Reviews
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!

Cumbersome and convoluted.
It is such a pain to enter anything! It’s a beautiful app, clearly they focused on looks. It’s a shame no attention was given to how someone would actually use it.
I tried to put in my work hours - you have to drag the work icon to the circle and then drag the color block around until you get it where you need it, then turn the circle so you can expand to your end time. When I tried to add my lunch I realized I couldn’t just insert it... I have to go back and move my work time and add another work time on the other side of lunch. You cannot just select and change the times. You have to drag things around the circle. The first few times didn’t bother me so much but it gets old REALLY fast. And if things change, you have to go in and adjust everything by dragging. I just don’t understand why they wouldn’t add a feature letting you type in times.

Hi Celena324, You brought up two very important points that our UX team is currently working on: 1) the ability to insert a new activity inside an existing segment on the O; and 2) the addition of a time picker. We are queuing in both of these ASAP. Meanwhile, we'd love for you to see the editing improvements we made to version 2.1 and let us know if you think we've done better? With kind regards, the Owaves team
(PS. Worth the upgrade)
I’m a super anxious person and this app helped mediate some of my anxiety for the time being. This app helped make my routine into a game with points and such. Also, I no longer have to remember so much which is a relief.
The different color items I could have helped my cruddy eyes to navagate long lists. The group function is great also so I don’t get overwelhmed with too long of a list.
However, one thing I’m a little frustrated about is that when selecting a group through an item, it only displays 4 options and you have to delete ones if you make more than 4 for them to display. I got the upgrade so nothing else is limited. Idk. Either way, I only use 3 groupings so it doesn’t affect me at the moment but it urks me since I know I’ll be using more than 4 groups very soon.
Anyway, a lovely app and certainly worth the upgrade. It reminds me of Xbox achievements and the sound that it makes when I complete a task is very satisfying. And that I can change a setting to make the completed task not appear is fantastic. 5 star, hands down
