What's it about?

AWAKEE MORNING ROUTINE PLANNER empowers kids by helping them develop a routine of healthy habits in the morning, or throughout the day. Kids start by tapping on the Routine tab and choosing a time of day to begin and end the routine. Then they choose timed tasks to complete as part of their routine. The app provides 11 categories to choose from, including exercise, hygiene, meditation, gratitude and journaling, and more. Each category includes a set of tasks that can be added to a routine. There’s also an option to create a custom task. When kids are ready, they choose the Today tab and hit the Start Routine button. The app steps through each task with a timer and makes a sound when the task is complete. Progress is automatically tracked on a built-in calendar. Kids can edit routines at any time and create multiple routines with the paid version of the app.

Is it any good?

If used consistently, this app could really empower kids who struggle with routine by helping them set daily goals and develop healthy habits, but be prepared for the pressure to get the paid version. It takes some thought to plan a meaningful routine, but kids will likely save time in the long run by following the series of timed tasks. Even kids who simply want to remember to practice playing their instruments or who need help remembering to do their chores could benefit by using this time management tool. It’s quite satisfying to see the routine checked off each day and added to the progress tracker. It would be neat to see some simple built-in rewards for completing a routine over a certain period of time. And, a pause button could be useful in the event that a kid is interrupted during his or her routine.
