  • Best task management So far Nov 26, 2018

    By fuzzyluck
    I actually don’t have kids, and haven’t tried to convince my wife to use this yet, but I’ve found this app is superior to any task management tool I’ve used. As some have pointed out, this is due to the fact that it’s not bogged down with complexities, but still has the functionalities you need for checking off your routine. Mostly I just like the fact that I simply press the check bubble when it’s done. My criticism for the app takes into account that I don’t use this exactly how it was intended (I mostly use it for managing my exercise, personal health, and basic habitual needs for work)—one thing I would like to see is better organization of daily, weekly, or monthly tasks. The feature where you can set a task to recur, say, twice a week, is amazing because it’s versatility allows you to account for tasks that don’t necessarily require they be every Tuesday or on the 24th of each month, but still must happen multiple times... I wish this function would be neatly filtered in my list, where my tasks for the day appear first, followed by tasks still to do for the week, finally with tasks that I must accomplish sometime this month. Currently it’s just randomly placed

  • Great so far!! Mar 21, 2019

    By Bomber bumer
    I’ve downloaded this app to keep track of chores and behavior. With a family of 7 it can get hectic at times. This app has allowed me to customize tasks for point values and also customize wrong behavior for subtracting points. We’ve set rewards for certain level of points and allow the points to roll over so they can collect those hard to reach rewards over a longer period of time. I’ve been spending the past week or so customizing it and making sure I have the permissions set just right before rolling it out to all of the devices. We don’t want big sister deducting points from little brother just because they can! I haven’t tested it in a “go live” environment just yet but wouldn’t expect any issues from what I’ve seen. I used an old device to test the child’s perspective which helped greatly to ensure they can’t remove each other’s points or mark them for a bad behavior. I love how flexible everything is and it is completely customizable. 5 children rotating chores and the app tracks that just fine when you figure out how to set it all up. The only downfall is learning how to get everything just right. It shouldn’t be to hard for a tech savvy person but not all of us are. It would help to have some tutorials or “how to’s” otherwise I could see many people getting frustrated and deleting it.

    This is a good app. Keeps me on track for my household chores and personal care. However, I'm giving it 4 stars because I feel there is something missing. That thing is the ability to add sub-tasks. I feel this would be greatly helpful for breaking larger, overwhelming tasks into small, manageable steps. 👍 Otherwise, great app. Thanks!

  • Great app, but buggy Dec 23, 2019

    By GennM
    We have been using this app for about a month and I love it, mostly. The interface is clean and easy to use. We love being able to add and take away points as well as leave instructions for chores and feedback. All awesome....but.....it’s a bit buggy and that’s why I cannot rage this app 5 stars. We’ve had issues with chore rotation throwing off the entire schedule if a child misses their chore day. If one of our kids doesn’t do their chores the app doesn’t continue the rotation, it just keeps it on that child and bumps chores assigned to others, which throws everything off and we have to reset the entire thing. The rotation should continue regardless. Also, every time we add or deduct points we get an error message telling us “Sorry, we can’t do that...” but the deduction or addition works so I don’t understand why the error pop up happens. Also, the server completely shuts down without warning. We’ve all been logged out randomly, then not allowed to log back in. We’ve had to reset our family twice now in one month. It’s becoming quite a hassle, which is disappointing because we would like an app that works on a consistent basis. I’ve tried to submit help tickets for this issue, but the website times out time and time again for support or it’s a blue screen. Not helpful.

  • Great app Aug 18, 2019

    By SDDizzle
    I rarely review apps, but this one deserves it. Trying to run a 7 person household is rough, but this app helps! I love this customizations available. I can assign chores on a rotating basis throughout family members, or set them to be always available, and everything in between. I love that you can have multiple admins, so you can share the responsibility of approving tasks and assigning them. At first I thought the grocery list was a little silly that I couldn’t remove it, but I’ve grown to love that I can plug something in the list, and my other half can see it and grab it on his way home from work. It took quite awhile to get everything set up how I wanted it, but it was worth it, and now that’s it’s all set up and the kids can see their chores from their tablets it’s smooth sailing. I also love the messaging feature, for family wide conversations, and that you can comment on individual tasks to incentivize even further than just the points/rewards system. I cannot stress how many apps I’ve tried and ultimately ended up deleting because they didn’t do everything I needed. This app is insanely inclusive, and I plan to use it forever.

    It's a nice app, it sets up easily and the interface is simple and attractive and I like the idea of assigning points and being able to have groceries and to do lists and calendars all in one place. However it does not allow you to sync this calendar with existing calendars like Google which is a deal breaker for me. We use Google for a multitude of other things and a family app that requires me to re-enter data is a non-starter

    This app was AMAZING for the first month. Now, neither my partner nor I get any notifications anymore. He has an iPhone and I have an Android, so the issue has to be with the app and not with any general system updates. Please, please fix this, the app is much less helpful without notifications.

  • Love it but needs some work May 14, 2019

    By IveTriedEmAll
    We love using this app and use it daily. I like the simplicity of its design once you figure it out. You do have to tweak it to have it do what you want My complaint with it is with the way everything shows up. You have to toggle back and forth several times to make sure all the chores have actually shown up. The other huge problem is with the sort order. I have tried to use a manual sort and arrange the chores in the order I want them done but they only stay in order for a day. By the next day they are all out of order again. I emailed support and they just said another family member must have messed with it. My husband is the other person on the account and he has not changed anything. The other thing I tried is to set reminders for the chores but the reminders randomly disappear as well. I have emailed support several times about this and uninstalled the app, signed in and out like they told me and the problem still persists. We really like the app otherwise and it is an app we would be willing to pay for (which is saying a lot as I typically don’t buy a lot of apps) But with these bugs it makes it almost unusable for us. We would love to see these issues fixed but meanwhile we will be looking at other options.

  • Finally Remembering Jul 8, 2018

    By Office PCA
    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.

    Fixed our home! PARENTS: This app is amazing! Our kids actually look forward to doing chores and exhibiting positive habits. The control that the 'rents get is amazing and our kids love to help out now. You can also challenge eachother. Make your own rewards like, "10min backrub" :) DEVELOPERS: Two features that would complete this app for us. 1. Searchable family activity history and chat. This would breathe way more accountability in to it. 2. A voting platform for meals, movies, etc.

  • Amazing! This has changed our life. Nov 28, 2018

    By jeff162738
    We now use these points as a reward system instead of money or in-app purchases for our 9 and 11 yr old. This is really important because it incentivized the things we want to do as parents... the rewards we chose are things like “Read a story together” or “Play Minecraft with Dad”. This lets the kids choose special experiences. It also helps limit things we don’t want them to do like drink soda. If you want a soda you have to spend your points on it. This makes the everyday battles so much easier because everyone knows the “rules” of the house. It’s eliminated the constant begging for things that slowly wears us down. We participate as parents. For example I get points when I hang up my shirt and pants after work, or turn the lights off when I leave. She gets points for all the house chores she does. This helps me see all the things my wife does, and helps me remember simple things that matter less to me (lights). We get to spend our points on things that matter to us like “go on a walk” or “5 minute massage”. Thank you OurHome team!

  • Almost perfect Aug 14, 2018

    By Ssrobinson16
    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!

  • Excellent Start Sep 12, 2019

    By BZMallory
    I have 5 children and maintaining our home and a chore rotation schedule was impossible on paper. We tried several different methods, but they were too cumbersome to update as children grew and were able to take on new chores. This app lets us add and remove assignments based on what the kids are capable of and keep their tasks rotating to avoid boredom. I also love that it give the children the independence to do their chores when they have time so everything gets done, but we aren’t being overwhelmed by the chores. My only feedback would be to add more icons for the categories, and allow tasks to be prioritized. My younger kids work better with a specific routine, so being able to order the tasks in a specific order would be great. Overall, I love this. I’ve spent quite a bit of time setting it up to cover all our tasks. Even better...my kids have taken an active interest in the app and doing their chores. They love being able to see their points add up. Anything that makes kids eager to help with the housework is a home run in my opinion.

    Love the app. The concept has been of great importance in our home. However, loses stars based on the fact the app on my phone crashes literally every time I open it. I am still using the web-based version on my computer, but my kids have a hard time requesting rewards or marking tasks when the app keeps crashing.

    Schedule component is glitchy. All I wanted this app for was to keep up a consistent schedule, but it keeps expired items up. I started keeping it for the grocery component, but I used that less and less because of awkward British wording and easier alternatives using online shopping.

  • Busy app Aug 9, 2018

    By JenniferR1025
    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.

    I just downloaded this app today. After a few hours poking around and setting up my kids chores for the week. Here is what I found. Pro's: 1. This app is very clean and organized. 2. Easy to add tasks to either a single profile or multiple profiles. 3. Can set daily, weekly, or monthly repetition or rotations for task. 4. Very easy to organize task by profile or date. Con's: 1. Can't organize the task list very well. Neither Alphanumeric or Due Date changes the list correctly. 2. Cant' create rewards right now either. Hope this gets fixed or the app is not really functional or worth keeping. I did email the support team. Will update if I receive a response.

    After months of using this app to great success, something has broken. It freezes, or takes forever to load about 20-25% of the time. The partial loading problem is old but I dealt with it. The freezing problem is new- the app just goes unresponsive and the only way to get it back is to quit the app and restart. My opinion is that this is no longer an easy-to-use app.
