4 Great Android Apps to Get Household Chores Done
Chores! I remember when my mom tried to get me to help with housework. I always found ways to avoid them. Now, I struggle to remember all the chores I need to do while working, writing, and brainstorming articles for you. But, times have changed since the ’90s.
Fast forward a couple of decades and we now have apps for everything. If you want specialized apps to keep track of your chores, here’s the answer. These Android apps are free and have different functionality. Choose the one that appeals to you most. Let’s take a look.
Clean House is a simple app with minimal features. It is ad-free and has a clean user interface, although it may not be the most visually appealing. Unlike other apps, there are no preloaded chores, so you will need to manually enter them. You can set chores to repeat at daily, weekly, or monthly intervals, but you will have to manually adjust the settings. While the app does offer notifications for chores, you can only set one notification for all tasks, so you will still need to regularly check the app.
2. Chore Master
This app features preset chores that can be added and selected based on your needs. The main highlight of Chore Master is its rewards structure. Completing each chore earns you points and motivates you to earn more (although cheating is easy). As you add and complete chores, the app tracks your progress and increases your levels, creating a game-like experience. It’s enjoyable to use and can even be used by kids.

Regularly is a well-designed app with a black background and contrasting text, making the UI more appealing. It features a list of predefined chores that you can add to or create your own. The best thing is that you can set custom reminders for each chore, whether it’s a dental visit or replacing the toothbrush.
It’s easy to use, but it requires more time for setup and daily updates. However, it lacks reward points, so kids may not be motivated to try it.
4. Cozi Family Organizer
Cozi is the most feature-rich app on the list that the entire family can use. The premise of Cozi is that each family member knows each other’s schedule, and adults can assign chores to kids, who are notified via email (if entered during setup).
Initially, setting it up just right may take some time, but the rewards will be worth it. Picture a family of 4 (or more) effortlessly coordinating schedules, with no missed classes or hassles due to this convenience.
For a premium of $29.99/year, you can upgrade to the Gold features, which eliminates ads, allows multiple reminders, notifies the whole family of each other’s appointments (if desired), and includes a birthday tracker and theme chooser.
One benefit is that all family members can view assigned tasks, eliminating the need for kids to complain about extra chores. The app allows for sharing common tasks or assigning specific ones to individuals.
How Organized Are You?
We hope these apps can organize your lives better. Some have iOS counterparts, while others don’t. Keeping track of chores is challenging, but the right app can help you stay on top. Which app do you like? Let us know in our discussion forums.
