So close

I really want to go all in with this app but I wish I could fully customize items. I cannot find a way to delete or modify the starting tasks that may not be relevant to my exact item. For example my generator requires a monthly maintenance run but the default task is every 3 months and cannot be changed.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for the suggestion! We are always looking to improve, so i've passed on your comment about editing our pre-set items to our production team.In the meantime, we do have a 'custom item' feature, where you can create an item and customize it as needed.

If you have any other features you'd like to see or have any questions about using our custom item feature please feel free to reach out to upkept@cr.consumer.org.

Inadequate Support

A liked the functionality and options of this app until I ran into a problem. I was trying to add a custom item to the kitchen category. Surprisingly, a microwave is not a part of their pre-set. A custom item canNOT be added - no picture, no details. I wrote to customer support, got an answer that they knew about the issue and were working on it. It’s been a month already, nothing happened. To my follow up email, I got a rude answer that they would let me know when it’s fixed. So, for now, I am not motivated to keep adding items as their picture upload doesn’t work even for the pre-set items. That prevents me from adding critical information about the appliances.

A must-have for home maintenance sticklers

Great app that gives tons of insight into home maintenance and lots of to dos that you might not have thought of. The ability to store item information and receipts is great and love the customizability for to do items. It’s a little rough around the edges with some glitches here and there but overall works pretty well and I find it super handy!
