Pretty darn good.
I have been using this for years now. I guess you could call it thoroughly enough tested that I can present my opinion. This is pretty much the best. I have about eight other to do apps I have tried, and two to do websites. The simple ability to say I do these things every day, and I want to check them off, as I do them, every day - why is this so revolutionary? If you want a to do you have to enter it for every day you’re going to do it on most of these to do apps. It is like they’re trying to reinvent the wheel and the fact that it needs to be round most of the time is really hard for them to grasp. Yes, I need to be reminded to take my pills every day. And a reminder that I meant to strip the beds and wash the sheets every week (dust allergies) would be helpful too, and if I only have to enter it once, instead of one time for every week that I intend to strip the sheets off the bed, that would be marvelous. You understand me, and the nature of my life. If there was one thing I could imagine adding, it would be a toggle for winter versus summer, so that I could have one list of to dos for when the snow is on the ground, like shoveling and scattering sand and salt, and another for when the lawn and garden need attention, like mow once a week, get out in the garden and weed for 15 minutes every day, check the week to see what needs planting this week, you know the drill. But I get by switching out weeding for shoveling manually.
Love it! Well done!
I just downloaded this app and got it all set up. I transferred my manual index card system to it, and I love it so far. If your familiar with Fly lady, this app works perfectly with her system. I like this so much better than the Cozy app I have been using, because I can customize it much better to my own preferences. So far I've come across no glitches.
One thing I don't see is how to mark tasks in a zone as occurring weekly, monthly or seasonally by zone. If this feature is there, I don't see it. It would be nice to keep a task within a zone but make it a weekly, monthly or seasonal occurrence. For example, I'd like to wash windows in a zone monthly, and clean the gutters seasonally. This feature would be so handy. Overall, I'm really loving this app and highly recommend it. It includes most everything I've been looking for in a home organization app. Well done!
Just about perfect
I bought this app years ago and after trying everything else (and I mean EVERYTHING) I just keep coming back to this one.
It has everything I need presented clearly and simply without all the calendars, priorities, labels, and other complicated stuff that ends up making other apps difficult to use and, ultimately, a waste of time.
I use it to keep track of recurring daily routines, weekly and monthly chores , and a running list of general To Do items.
I use the zones a bit differently by using the name of each family member instead of a room name. When it's house cleaning day I can just click on that week's zone and see everything on the chores list for that week, all on one page, yet nicely separated by each person's individual responsibilities.
Also, the To Do List just works.
I would give this app 5 stars for that aspect alone.
The only thing I don't love is the lack of customizable styles. The 5 or 6 options are all pretty hokey and outdated. But that's purely an aesthetic issue. Otherwise this app is the best one out there by far.
