Timo Routine is a task management and habit creation app specifically designed for children. The app is designed to work for children under thirteen years old with the assistance of a parent, or for children thirteen and older on their own.
The child creates an avatar for themselves and then adds tasks and habits they need to accomplish for the morning, the afternoon, and the evening. These tasks and habits are selected from a menu of set tasks and include things like Take a Bath, Feed the Cat, Do Homework, etc. Each task has a timer set to it so when the child initiates the task, they have that amount of time to complete the task and mark it as done in the app. Each completed task earns the user stars which can then be used to further customize their avatar with clothing, accessories, and even pets. If the child does not complete the task, they will lose stars.
After several days of using the app, parents can click on the stats tab and see how their children are progressing with their tasks for the week. Push notifications can also be turned on for an extra reminder.
Timo Routine is currently available for iOS and Android.
Timo Routine can help your child practice time management skills because each habit or task is divided into different chunks of time. The child clicks on the activity they want to begin and then they can see exactly how much time they have to complete this activity. Completing it within the set amount of time earns them stars to customize their avatar while failing to complete it causes them to lose stars. This encourages the child to stay focused and spend their time wisely in order to complete their tasks before the timer runs out.
Organization: Arranging and coordinating materials in order to complete a task.
Timo Routine can help children develop an organizational system for children who struggle with completing tasks or find it hard to stick with certain habits. The day is divided into three sections so children can organize their habits and chores into the times of day when they will need to complete them. Colorful and fun pictures accompany the words for each task, so even children who cannot yet read can select the activities they need to add to their to-do list.
