First/Then Visual Schedule by Good Karma Apps

Elegant schedule app for simple schedules:
single item
list view

This is a beautiful solution for the complexity of putting together first/then schedules. First/Then schedules made with velcro generally require some manipulation (or multiple page flip book setup) to work. First/Then takes care of this elegantly. Full view, split view (2) and list view with option for auditory prompts and check off when done (great for list view).
