Fixed some minor bugs in push notifications

New in 1.2.0:

- Don't like the new notifications? Go into zen mode to receive a minimal number of notifications.
- Assign one-off tasks this week, this weekend or next week as well as specific days
- Easily share a ghost user's tasks for today with others

A suggestion

Overall great app—easy interface, well-organized. My only complaint is the assignment of tasks. I love that users can assign individual and rotating tasks. However, I think adding an “everyone” option and the ability to assign specific chores to multiple people would take this app from wonderful to spectacular. I live in a house with roommates, and trying to keep everyone accountable for their own messes is a struggle. Our household has a daily dishwashing chore for everyone’s own dishes. Only problem is there’s no “everyone” option for task assignment. Also, only certain members of the home are responsible for pet care since not everyone owns a pet in the house. Being able to assign “walk dogs” to only two people instead of anyone/one person would be grand. Please consider!

Thanks for the compliments and feedback! I presume you were able to find that you can assign tasks to 'anyone', but maybe this is a bit different to 'everyone' where everyone needs to check it off? We'll definitely consider this for the future. And assigning tasks to a few specific people is on our list. We hope to get it into the app soon :). Please email us at if you have more specifics on these features so we make sure to build it right.

Really seeing the benefit 1 month in

My husband and I have been using the app for a month, and I realized today when he was putting the trash out for morning pickup that I hadn’t had to think about putting the trash out that whole time. Takes a few weeks to see the difference— I’m really happy now that I am spending less time thinking about the list of to dos and don’t need to check up on his stuff. Definitely recommend.

Great app! It helps us both know all the chores are going to get done without us having to check in on each other. And if one of us is away, it’s a nice organized list of everything that needs doing.
