You have waited so patiently for our App. Thank you. I want to tell you a little about its history.
I am a geek at heart. So, in 1999, when I was establishing my routines and decluttering our home, I set up some simple reminders on my Palm Pilot. It became my memory. I had developed my Control Journal but I still needed to be reminded to look at it.
Every hour, a reminder would pop up on my Palm Pilot. Even if I didn't actually do that item right then, it was in my head. Repetition is good to help develop lifelong habits.
The reminders in our App can be checked off to give you a sense of accomplishment. The best part is they are in your time zone.
Over the years, we have all developed a love-hate relationship with email. I have always believed that our messages helped to replace the negative thoughts in our heads. We have to eliminate our stinkin' thinkin'! This sets us on the path to FLYing!
The FlyLady Messenger App is a mixture of our daily messages, testimonials, and reminders. I have been using it for several weeks. Just today, I got the reminder that asked if I had eaten any lunch. I almost laughed because I was sitting down to eat a sandwich. I do believe that I am reprogramming myself again.
As I have told you for many years, I want you to delete our messages every day. With the App, the reminders start fresh each morning and the messages are geared to have a shelf-life of 24 hours. I designed the App this way to help you let them go. Messages can be opened by sliding to the left and tapping “Read.” This will take you to our website to read the message. The Reminders can be double-tapped to check as “done” with a big purple check mark. At midnight, they all go away without you having to do anything.
We have priced this App so that it is affordable for everyone. Right now, it is only available for iPhone users. Thank you for your patience. We still have our messages free in regular email if you do not want to buy our App. We will NOT automatically renew for you because we do not keep your credit card information on file. I hate it when this happens to me. It is like getting stuck in the “Record of the Month Club.” Remember those?! I will not do that to my FlyBabies.
Use the App! Have fun with it. Let it help you to FLY!
FlyLady Messenger is only available for iPhone, IPad and iPod Touch running iOS 8.0 and up.
Love it for what it does!
I was so excited for this app. Then, I read the reviews and rethought. But, I downloaded it. This app does exactly what it is meant to do. It reminds you of the routines. Please don't review it based on what you think it should be doing. Please don't review it badly because it isn't "perfect". If you don't need these reminders, then don't download it. Her nephew has an app with the routines listed and checklists and it's free.... Fly lady gives us so much for free that I don't mind paying a small amount for this. I use both apps. They do different things. I have heard that apps are expensive to design. I don't use Facebook and don't get the reminders from there to do things. I love that this resets each morning. I love that I don't have to go to my email to check messages because I get sidetracked by the other messages. I like things simple and to the point because it makes my life easier. This app does that. It is a reminder app. This way you don't have to keep checking your control journal. Oh, if fly lady does read this... Maybe you could put in some room rescue for five minutes or a quick fling mission game thrown in throughout the day. I would love that. Thank you for this app. Love it!!
I can't believe all the negative reviews. Some people won't be happy until FlyLady comes to their house and sets up shop in their spare room! Seriously? If you are a Fly Baby, then you know that it's progress, not perfection that is important! For me, this app is just right. I love having a check list that I can click every day! I love having a list of messages to read (or not) on a different page. I love how the checklist page is fresh every morning, so I don't need to see what I missed doing yesterday. I love that fresh start every day!
I think some folks were hoping for a magic wand that would do everything, but FlyLady has never promised that. The description of this app is accurate. Take it for what it is - a tool to help us Fly. As a southpaw, I often need to use tools that are different from what others use, or use tools differently. Maybe this isn't your tool, but it sure is mine!
Simple and to the point
This is a great app that send reminder messages to your home screen to do the basics of the Fly Lady method plan throughout your day. If you're not on top of drinking your water, or tackling that decluttering mission in the basement for example, this app is for you. If you're not down to spend the few dollars to have a message on your phone rather than an email (which are free, and can lead me to being side-tracked) I would not look to invest in this. I think this app is worth the small investment, and reaps great rewards in staying focused. Great job, and I like the Pavlov's effect of the chime on my phone.
