February 1, 2012 at 8:06 PMAdministrator


Chore Checklist helps you to manage chores at home or other places.  It records chores' completion date and calculate next due date based on your preference. You can also set reminder for each chore. It comes with a pre-loaded check list which has routines,  such as "Daily Routine", "Weekly Routine", "Monthly Routine" and etc. You may edit them or add new routine/chores.  

Version 2.0 and later is cloud enabled. The cloud can serve as the backup storage. 
More importantly, multiple users can collaborate on a same chore list instance from their phones or laptops/desktops. Users can edit chore lists through web browsers on laptops/desktops, which is much more convenient than editing lists on phone.  
In Version 2.0 or later, users can manage multiple chore lists on a single phone/device. There are three new views introduced. "By Due Date" and "By Location" are views  aggregating chores from multiple lists. "Lists & Cloud" view is designed to collaborate lists between local devices and Cloud.  

Create/Edit a Chore List

"By Routine" view is designed to create/edit chore lists. Even though, "By Routine" view supports check/uncheck/skip chores, "By Duedate" and "By Location" views are prefered over "By Routine" view to perform these activities. Click the "question mark" buttons at the bottom of  views' pages for detailed instructions.
