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!

Love it! Well done!

I just downloaded this app and got it all set up. I transferred my manual index card system to it, and I love it so far. If your familiar with Fly lady, this app works perfectly with her system. I like this so much better than the Cozy app I have been using, because I can customize it much better to my own preferences. So far I've come across no glitches.

One thing I don't see is how to mark tasks in a zone as occurring weekly, monthly or seasonally by zone. If this feature is there, I don't see it. It would be nice to keep a task within a zone but make it a weekly, monthly or seasonal occurrence. For example, I'd like to wash windows in a zone monthly, and clean the gutters seasonally. This feature would be so handy. Overall, I'm really loving this app and highly recommend it. It includes most everything I've been looking for in a home organization app. Well done!

Still love this app!

I’ve been using this app for the better part of 10 years and it is seriously the most underrated to-do, routine app out there. I’ve downloaded many other apps and nothing compares to this one, I always end up coming back! It’s fully customizable, in ways I’m still discovering. The schedule which used to work for me no longer does so I deleted everything and started over, completely redoing all of my “routines”. The only thing I wish would be updated would be to have a smaller number of zones, as they only offer 5, 6, or 7 but that’s my only gripe. I don’t use the zones anymore because if that but have been able to figure out how to make my own “zones” just by adding many more routines that only show up as often as I want them to. Great app! I hope they continue to support it FOREVER! 😁
