Recently I’ve been on the hunt for a way to keep our family tasks and schedule more organized. There certainly is no lack of availability to apps for this but I was frustrated by how many of them are too complicated on one hand, and yet lack so many basic features on the other. This app was the answer to the simple but developed tool I wanted for our family and with a clean design and user interface to boot!
The customization in task ownership, categories, and scheduling are awesome, and the ‘nudge’ function may just be my favorite! The only reason I can’t give it 5 stars is because there are some additional features I would love to see. A notepad with the availability to use the categories for storing information relevant to your family that isn’t task related (insurance info, important contacts..) Also the ability to Create reminders that aren’t task related, and lastly a functioning calendar that allows broader use than just showing your tasks on a timeline.
I think these features will take this from a family task management app to a full blown home organization tool that would get all ten of my stars - waiting anxiously to see if these updates will come along, love this app!
Thanks Ssrobinson, that's great to hear. I've also added your three suggestions to our list of improvements to make in the future. Hopefully we can add at least one or two of them but let us know if you ever have any other ideas for how we can improve the app further.
For as long as I can remember I’ve struggled with a lack of direction when a bit of unclaimed time came my way. I’ve read and tried to implement many household organization books. In the end I’ve set up meal planners and chore planners, but after a week or two I’ve forgotten where they are or that they exist.
This app has helped me remember to do the daily language lessons needed to learn a new language. 😊 It has helped me begin to make cleaning part of my routine, so I’m not constantly overwhelmed and looking at unkept areas with regret. ⭐️ My husband mowed our lawn in a timely manner without a word from me when he realized he could get points for it! 👍 I kept the needed tasks at the front of my thoughts when preparing the house for guests this weekend by arranging the timing of the tasks to fit the event. Super! 🎉
My only disappointment is that when I move from this app to another app and come back I need to close Our Home and reopen it before it will respond. Otherwise it’s a great platform with lots of flexibility for use in creating reminders and rewards to motivate under multiple categories at the same time.
Thanks Office PCA for the kind feedback, that's fantastic to hear. Our apologies though for the freezing issue, thankfully it's been fixed, however, in iOS 12, so please just update your OS when it's publicly available and the issue should be resolved. And let us know if you ever have any other feedback or suggestions on how we can improve the app further :)
I am updating my original review from when I had issues adding a family password. It took me several days to figure that out.
There is A LOT to learn in this app. It’s very busy and overly complicated. I found several things that could be simplified. Such as splitting a task, this makes it a competition for kids to see who can complete a task first, then the task is completed and no longer available for the other child to do. This took some learning. So, if you have the same task for both kids you have to create two of the same task for both kids making your task screen overly busy when it doesn’t need to be.
It could be simplified by adding a check box for “first finished” and leaving the “task split” for both kids to complete as a shared task meaning the chore is to be completed by both kids as an individual task. That eliminates multiple task of the same job on the screen and if you want it to be a competition, just check the box-or not.
We’ve stopped using the app for now as it became too time consuming. I may revisit it in the future and give it another go but I don’t have time to be policing an app on top of my kids. Things need to be simplified for busy lives.
Hi Jennifer, I'm really sorry to hear of the issues you've experienced and I can imagine the frustrations they must have caused. If you wouldn't mind emailing us at email@example.com with your account details we'll look into it straight away and hopefully have a fix within a day. My apologies for the issue once again.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
