Organise every second of your life
Daily Routines is designed to help organise your life, and is packed full of useful features to help you do this. Essentially, it’s a list of timeslots which you program activities into, which are colour coded for easy viewing. You can also add your own customised activities, though you may not need to, as all of the essentials – such as Sleep and Fun – are already covered.
Once you’ve set up routines, you can use these templates over and over again to organise your time. You can allocate them to particular days, as well as make them repeat on certain days of the week or month. The app lets you set notifications, and will remind you whenever a new timeslot starts, or you can set up individual reminders for timeslots that you often forget.
You can also customise the colours and icons to add an extra visual touch, and email your routine or print to an AirPrint compatible printer. The design is a bit distracting, though, and we would have preferred a more basic interface for this kind of app. It also feels like you should be able to edit your routines by tapping on the entry in the main Routines section, and it feels quite complicated to have to tap through several menus to get to where you want to be. A pity, as it’s great idea in principle that would benefit from a few tweaks to the interface.
This could be an app you find yourself using all the time, especially if you have a hectic schedule that needs organising to the minute.
