I'm working with a mobile app and would like the user to easily and intuitively set up 3+ reminders in-app. Just about every example that i saw up to date uses HH:MM time picker, which seems too cumbersome and precise for me. There's no way to easily adjust all reminders at once for a particular day.
This is why I've been playing around with an idea of a "24 hour analog" reminder scheduling using drag and drop:
- Reminder pin with an icon representing reminder type (ex: exercise)
- Drag and drop gesture to place a reminder pin,
- Pan gesture to modify timing of a reminder (moves pin around)
- Rotate gesture can be used to adjust timing of all reminders at once (for example if a user woke up late one day)
How can I set time in analog format, without using a time picker, in a mobile setting? Are such systems intuitive to use?
Here's my earliest attempt at creating such a time picker (all reminders are fixed, and a rotate gesture is used to select bedtime)
Another example that I'm aware of is my own ios journal app focused around a 24 hour dial to show when different journal entries took place. I'm thinking of modifying that app into such reminder scheduling system.
