Aumi is built to help people who need help managing their anxiety, monitoring their mood and avoiding burnout. Aumi is also for and by people on the autism spectrum.
Mood tracking allows you to track their mood using the app or periodic notifications. You can then look back at your mood over the last week. This makes it easier for you to see when you have had a difficult day, which would indicate that they would need to try to take some time to recover. It also means that you can try to identify patterns in, for example, anxiety. This is useful for anyone who struggles with anxiety and depression and autistic people.
Another part is energy accounting. This is designed to try to help people to avoid burnout. You give your activities ‘Energy Impact Scores’. These scores are between -10 and 10. -10 would indicate that the activity is completely exhausting and 10 indicates that the activity gives the you a lot of energy. As activities are recorded, your energy level for the day is updated. You can also look back at your energy level graphs over the last week. All of the energy accounting uses a traffic light colour coding system.
You can also set up a ‘Morning Check-In’ notification. This allows you to set your starting energy level at the beginning of the day (this will often be affected by how well you slept and what you did the day before). This is useful for anyone who frequently finds themselves burnt out.
As well as this, there is the planner. This makes it easy for you to plan your days. You have cards for each of the next 10 days, to which you add items. These items consist of an activity and you can choose to add notes, a start time, an end time and a checklist. The planner integrates energy accounting, helping you to ensure that you add enough time for rest along with activities that tire you out.
This section helps people to visually see their schedule, reducing anxiety and making it easy to have a sense of structure in their days. All items in the day can be marked as complete by simply tapping on them. Your energy level is them updated appropriately. Being able to mark the items as complete helps you to stay focused on what they have to do next, helping you to get your tasks done in the day.
The last section is the profile. This makes it really easy for you to tell people about yourself in situations where they may find communication difficult. You can then add as many sections as they want. Within the sections, you can add as many different text items as you wish. There is also the option to add your name, date of birth and a picture of yourself to the profile. This aims to provide a digital alternative to other information sheets that you may carry with you.
Whenever changes are made, there is a blog post on https://aumi.app/blog. If there are visual changes, there are pictures showing the app before and after the update. These posts are done in order to prevent you from being distressed by sudden changes to the app: the aim is to make it as comfortable as possible for people on the spectrum. Feedback is also highly valued, and these blog posts explain why changes were made, referencing any feedback that influenced them.
