FAQ – frequently asked questions
"What does Tiimo do?"
Tiimo shows daily activities on a smartwatch or smartphone. The daily activities are created here on tiimoapp.com. A small description of the activity is added, if there is something in particular the child has to remember. There is an option to choose an icon that represents the activity and you can choose whether to display a visual countdown. During the day, the current activity appears on the smartwatch or smartphone, so the child can always orientate themselves around his or her plans. This gives the child an understanding of what's on the program right now. The smartwatch makes small vibrations, every time a new activity is starting, or ending. This helps the child recognize that a change is about to take place.

"How do I get started?"
"How long does it take to get started?"
The amount of time it takes to set up the calendar with activities varies because the necessity for detail and the number of activities varies from child to child. Our experience shows that the first time you set up the schedule for a day, it takes about 10 minutes. However, after setting up the schedule a couple of times, you will find that it becomes easier. You can also save your daily routines and reuse them.
