Make Your Life Easier

Who doesn't love a tool that can make your life easier, smoother, and more organized? The HomeRoutines app aims to do that and offers plenty of features to help you out. Besides being able to create the room checklists there is the ability to set up recurring housework that is meant to go with the routine/flow of your own house. A cool feature is the "Focus Zones" where you will be able to add all the rooms of your house and then create their own specialized cleaning lists. This is a great way to keep track of chores that aren’t necessarily done every day so they may get forgotten otherwise. With these Focus Zones you can set up seven zones maximum.

Now if you really want to motivate or rather challenge yourself there are also built-in timers so you can time just how long you take to complete a task once you get started.
