House chores are a real pain. No-one wants to do them, yet they always have to be done. A companion app can really help you push yourself in the right direction for your household chores. So we asked 10 people to review all of the house chore apps out there and so without further ado, here is the rundown!
Full disclosure: the selected reviewers were entirely independent, were not paid for their time and did not know that we were affiliated with one of the apps reviewed.
Average score: 9.7
Today topped every reviewer’s scores thanks to its unique approach of assigning each task a time, allowing the user to work on a task for a set period on a recurring basis.
“Today is the app that I’m going to keep using. Its time tracking is unparalled” – Emily S.
Average score: 9.1
The Spotless household app looks to help keep your home clean and clutter-free. Breaking each area of the house into rooms, if you just need to track cleaning, this is your app. Outside of that though, you’ll need to look elsewhere.
“If you just need to track cleaning, this is your app” – Jordan S.
3. Clean My House
Average score: 8.8
If you love lists, this app is for you. Clean My House helps organise your house and even schedule errands. The app will remind you each morning what needs to be that done to help you gradually tick off your to-do list.
“If you love lists, this app is for you.” – Billie R.
Average score: 8.2
HomeRoutines allows the user to create lists around their chores. With reminder notifications and alerts, this highly detailed (but expensive) app keeps track of the things you get done.
“HomeRoutines has cool features to segment tasks, though the UI could be prettier.” – Ryan D.
Average score: 6.9
OurHome has a lot going for it. It has iOS, Android and web support, and a host of features around task tracking. Our reviewers found it pretty buggy however, hence its lower score.
“OurHome has a ton of potential, but would need to see it be more reliable before I would want to use it.” – Emily S.
