Invaluable for households with domestic blind spots
I saw this app recommended in an online discussion about how to keep on top of housework. We're a big household, busy, and not naturally tidy - we see the mess/chaos once it's built up and then don't know where to start; chipping away as we go along just doesn't come naturally to us. This app has enabled us to distil chores into everyday basics, weekly and fortnightly housework, etc. Now we just need to look at and work through our daily list. With a baby in the equation, we won't be sticking to it too religiously for a while, but it's the strongest starting point we've been at yet. It's great that my partner has the app on his phone too and we can each keep up with what needs doing, wherever we are/if the other is out/without needing to leave lists lying around. If I could work out how to allocate my own dates for different zones (three days for this, four for that, for example), I'd give it five stars. A genuinely helpful app when it comes to trying to run a vaguely orderly, clear and clean home.
Very Good Routine App
I have been using this app for about two weeks. I research apps and this app was mentioned time and time again.
I'm a bit fussy about things and to be honest I wasn't expecting to like it.
However, I've been able to set up routines so easily using the basic set up. I've also been able to set up my own. I've been using the app almost every day and have noticed an immediate improvement. The ability to have repeatable lists that refresh over a set period of time cannot be underestimated.
A little rough around the edges but actually works!
Yes it's not a beautiful app but you can edit the things you need to do each day/week/month and the rest is automatic.
Housework is so tedious it's tempting to try and do everything in one day once a month to get it over with. But that does not a tidy house make! Because it's overwhelming to do it all in one day- so you put it off...
The app helps you to remember what you've done and what you need to do, a little each day, so you can put your feet up without feeling guilty!
