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.

Good App👍

Very helpful App! Perfect for zone cleaning or pretty much any cleaning routine! The only thing I wish were g better notifications. I use this on iPod Touch 6th Generation. So on the lock screen I see a notification but it doesn’t say anything other than it’s a HomeRoutines notification, And when I unlock my screen it disappears and not viewable notification. Wish it would pop up on widgets options for notification on iPod’s widgets setting like many of the Apps I’ve downloaded. There should also be an old version available but there isn’t. I also have an iPod 4th generation and I lost my passcode had to reset and it wiped all my apps and I couldn’t get the HomeRoutines app I paid for back. Even willing to pay again for the old one but it is not available. I also MISS the washer icon and like it much more than the check off star. Don’t get me wrong I’m loving the cute little check off stars and I hope they stay that way! But I very much preferred the washing machine as the main icon.
Also I wish the zones tab was on the top and not near the bottom after the other routines. Love this app otherwise!

Awesome with one flaw

I’m definitely enjoying this app. I like that I can make as many lists as I want and create a schedule for myself. It’s a great guide to remind you of all those little things you forget to do.

I got the app because of its “focus zones”built in. Basically you set up a schedule to clean specific rooms in the house on a schedule. You can have up to 7 focus zones, choosing to switch zones daily, weekly, or manually. If you choose weekly, it automatically resets to zone 1 on the first of the month, which means you’ll never get to zone 6 or 7. Even zone 5 lasts only a day or so depending on the day it switches. I wish it could change weeks automatically after cycling through 7 weeks instead of just the month. I have to choose manually to have it cycle through all 7 zones.

But even with this glitch I think it’s worth it! I really like it!
