Best task management So far
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

Thanks for the feedback, fuzzyluck, that's a good suggestion that we're consider for future updates. If you ever have any other ideas for how we can improve the app further, don't hesitate to let us know :)
Great so far!!
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.

Hi Bomber, thanks for the great feedback and I hope the app proves effective in the 'live environment' :)
Great app, but buggy
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.
