    Keeping an eye on 2 kids while doing laundry and cooking lunch is more than enough for one person. OurHome is great for keeping track of to-do’s and getting your kids to help with chores too! Mom can even update the grocery list so Dad can pick up food on the way home.

    It is a never-ending challenge to get kids to do their daily chores, which can lead to 5 hours wasted trying to get him or her to do simple household work. OurHome lets you quickly list and schedule chores as well as set rewards or allowances for each chore they complete

    Do you need a way to motivate your 11-year old kid to help you with the chores? They can now be rewarded for completing simple tasks to keep your house organized. With a checklist, you can assign your kids certain tasks and once complete, they will rewarded redeemable points.

    Rewarding your children for doing their chores will help to guarantee they will be more willing to do them in the future. This app combines the features of 2 or 3 apps into 1. Many people who don't have children also find it useful for keeping them on task.

    When you live in a home with 100 other sisters, the last thing you want is an argument over whose turn it is to tidy the study area. You can assign tasks to be sure they are evenly distributed and everyone gets the chance to contribute.

    1. A new way to organize your family! Create a family calendar and a shared grocery list, send messages, set chores for each child and more
    2. All features sync across multiple devices, keeping your family connected 24/7
    3. No advertisements, no locked features! Access the entire app for free from the very beginning

    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.

    Perfect app for micromanaging the household, and raise children based on incentives/positive behavior. One of my children has been diagnosed with autism and this allows us to create a daily schedule of tasks that benefits him. My daughter is really incentive driven thus she is also positively engaged. I would give a 5th star if the refresh in the app is improved. Now I have to switch forth and back to see the changes/newly achieved tasks/claimed rewards.
  • 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.

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!

    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.

  • 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.

    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.

    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.

    The notifications worked for the first week, but that was it. We are on a mix of Apple and Android phones and we all experienced the same thing. We've checked our phone settings are they allow notifications for Our Home. I need the notifications so I don't have to nag the kids. Without them this app isn't useful for us.

  • 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.

    I started using this app a whole ago and loved it. But about 2 weeks ago the reminders stopped working, which are essential for me. I emailed the support a week ago and have not heard anything back. If they can fix the reminders it will be a great app.

    By Tiago Procheira
    App is really good looking, very versatile, but I really REALLY miss notifications when someone assigns a task, or when the defined reminder time arrives. To be honest, a chores/task app is almost useless without notifications... (By the way, they are all enabled in settings)
  • Mar 13, 2021

    By A
    Deleted this app due to collecting too much info. The permissions may look benign but the fact that you can't use the same email for multiple family members, or that, as an alternative to distinct emails they require distinct user names for each person (not distinct within your own family, but distinct from every other person who has ever set up the app and all their family members) suggests they want to be able to gather very detailed & specific info at some point. That's a no from me.

    Every single action/tap results in the app freezing for 3-10 seconds. Often I get an app not responding notification. Notifications are enabled for this app but they have not once shown up. On Android 11, Galaxy note 20 ultra.
  • Nov 22, 2020

    By Chimmy Anne Gunn
    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.

  • 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!
  • Perfect solution for us Oct 17, 2019

    By MomKVG
    After trying several other chore list/task assignment/allowance tracking type of apps, this one finally has the perfect combo of features we needed. This includes easy to assign tasks (for one person or several) with clear “points” associated with them (which are equivalent to dollars in our case). You can add specifics to the tasks or not. You can get fancy with them and add recurrences, etc or not. And when someone finishes something they just click that it’s done, it goes away and the points get added to their “bank.” Again, you can get fancy with that part and add required approvals, etc or not. You can track who did what and completed it at what time or you can not give a crap about those details. And then we pay them for their hard work, we simply zero out their “bank.” It’s uncluttered, easy to set up and easy to explain to 3 other family members how to use. I was seriously shocked that all of those other apps just couldn’t accomplish this very straight forward tracking system. Best part ——-> It’s FREE.

    My husband and I had a difficult time getting into the swing of things when it comes to cleaning. I can clean all day long because I enjoy it but that is the last thing on his list. He wants to help but just doesn’t think of it. This app helped by giving him an incentive! He doesn’t even claim his points even though he’s got a ton, because he just likes getting points lol men need to win and stuff? Idk. I’m loving the 10 minute massages I get to claim and he loves getting points for doing dishes and laundry and construction around the house. Since I’m home more I was getting more of the home maintenance points and he was getting discouraged. So we made categories that he could claim and feel proud of! Like going to work everyday to provide for our family and serve the Lord and others, working extra hours on our online business, cuddling me (wife! Lol), taking vitamins, etc... It’s been a really fun app to use. We use this probably as much or more than our bank account apps and our calendar app. We love it!! You guys really did a great job. :)
  • Habit-Points Bank Jan 20, 2020

    By 404AppleNotFound
    This is the best points tracker/bank I have tried. I don’t use it in the family capacity but to keep track of earning and spending points for my habit-points system.(I assign my recurring habits points based on difficulty and importance and cash in the points for guilty pleasures or splurges. This helps motivate me to complete the habits and also places a higher value on pleasures and splurges to ensure I don’t overindulge.) One of my frustrations with comparable apps was that many of them lock into using it strictly as a family/chore tracker, so task details such as due date as well as building out a “family” are all required to use the app, which is fine for the designated purpose but obviously that doesn’t suit my use-case. This app allows those customizations without requiring them. It also easily functions as a true points “bank,” allowing you to add task completion and points redemption as transactions. Over all, love the app. Frankly I need all the help I can get in staying motivated and this app has been a godsend in that regard.

  • Excellent for motivating kids school/chores and decreasing parental nagging Nov 12, 2017

    By EvrAftr
    This is an incredibly effective tool to provide kids a list of to do’s to be productive in school and contributing to chores. We’re using it for our middle schooler (age 11) and he’s extremely motivated to collect points and cash. Using this app has decreased arguing/nagging because if he doesn’t complete something I either deduct points (which he doesn’t like) or he doesn’t earn cash (for chores) if I complete them (example: unloading dishwasher, vacuuming). My ‘wish list’ for the developers is to make it a more user friendly for the kid in being able to view categories instead of a total list. Also for the kiddo to be able to view a pie chart based on categories of completion and maybe a button/suggestions to kiddo to complete school/responsibilities to increase their points/rewards earned. These features would help parents reinforce areas that need to be developed. Those changes would be absolutely amazing! Overall, I’m so happy I’ve found this app!

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!

    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.

    It's a great app. I love the interface and how you can easily add task, rewards, points, etc. Lately though, I am not getting the notifications so I can't see if somebody completed a task or claimed a reward unless I get in the app. It would be nice if this was fixed.

    Really good app but for some reason I can't change how many times a day a task should be done or in how many weeks, it just says this task will always be in the to do list... not sure what's going on there as I could change it before but now it does that.
  • We like it Feb 27, 2019

    We used chore monster for a while and the kids loved how fun it was to spin for monsters. I also found it very easy to set up and add rewards too. Unfortunately, every few months it would just cease to work for weeks at a time. I downloaded so many apps trying to find a suitable replacement and none of them worked for us.... Until I found this one! It’s a bit more complicated to set up, (it could be that I’m just lazy after having to set up a billion other apps that stunk.) but it wasn’t overly difficult. I’m still learning how to use the app but over all, I can easily add new tasks, add and subtract points as needed, and reschedule tasks as needed. I also love that it offers task suggestions. Perhaps some tutorials would help a bit? Or maybe they are there and I have missed them. They do offer tips in the app that help as well and that’s nice. I gave 4 stars bc of the learning curve and bc it actually has more functions than I really need or want. What a goofy thing to subtract a star for! Too much functionality?! Lol! Sorry!

    Love the app, could you possibly make a way to separate the always available tasks and the ones due today? Also some way to put certain tasks like seasonal tasks into an archive that way I don't have to delete and remake the task every year
  • Amazing with 2 improvements Aug 29, 2018

    So far I love this app for how clean it looks and how simple it is to set up. We will definitely be using the grocery list, since our kids are now old enough to pack their own lunches and make their own food choices. I would really like to ditch our Apple Calendar and use this app in order to streamline things, but I have 2 hesitations: 1. When I schedule a repeating event, I can’t find a way to tell it when to end. This would be helpful for lessons and things that only run 8-10 weeks. 2. When I’m looking at the whole calendar view, I can’t see a specific day’s events listed out unless I click onto the day...then I can’t see the rest of the calendar. The Apple Calendar shows the whole month with a bulleted list underneath for whatever day you’ve clicked on, and it’s super helpful in scheduling.
  • 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.

    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.

    Just started using and was really enjoying it BUT for some reason when adding task, the repeat pop window the weekly and monthly options do not appear. Already closed app and restarted but same thing happens.

    Application Notifications Do Not Work Feb 24, 2021

    By josh falkiewicz
    Kinda a cool application but the notifications stopped working for us. Have tried reinstalling and checking phone notification settings, but the problem is clearly on the dev side.
  • Mar 7, 2021

    By Kristin and Darren Sedore
    The notifications worked for the first week, but that was it. We are on a mix of Apple and Android phones and we all experienced the same thing. We've checked our phone settings are they allow notifications for Our Home. I need the notifications so I don't have to nag the kids. Without them this app isn't useful for us.
  • Mar 2, 2021

    By Jasmine Alicea
    The app was great until notifications stopped working suddenly last month. I thought it might be my phone, but my family was having the same issue. Also noticed other recent reviews mentioning notification issues as well. Would love to continue using if this can be fixed.
  • Love it but needs some work May 14, 2019

    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.

    App is really good looking, very versatile, but I really REALLY miss notifications when someone assigns a task, or when the defined reminder time arrives. To be honest, a chores/task app is almost useless without notifications... (By the way, they are all enabled in settings)

    Every single action/tap results in the app freezing for 3-10 seconds. Often I get an app not responding notification. Notifications are enabled for this app but they have not once shown up. On Android 11, Galaxy note 20 ultra.
  • Nov 22, 2020

    By Chimmy Anne Gunn
    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.

    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
  • Mar 4, 2021

    By Jonna Sandegren
    I started using this app a whole ago and loved it. But about 2 weeks ago the reminders stopped working, which are essential for me. I emailed the support a week ago and have not heard anything back. If they can fix the reminders it will be a great app.

    Deleted this app due to collecting too much info. The permissions may look benign but the fact that you can't use the same email for multiple family members, or that, as an alternative to distinct emails they require distinct user names for each person (not distinct within your own family, but distinct from every other person who has ever set up the app and all their family members) suggests they want to be able to gather very detailed & specific info at some point. That's a no from me.

    By Laura
    This used to be a great app. Now it doesn't display notifications so is completely useless! I've checked all my phone settings and even re-installed the app. My household will be changing apps.
