Description

Tody is a smarter to-do list for managing household cleaning routines. It will optimize and motivate your cleaning. ● Gain flexibility by managing cleaning tasks by indicators of actual need rather than arbitrary dates. ● Tody visualizes dirtiness to motivate cleaning and visualizes the effect of cleaning to enhance satisfaction. ● There are no deadlines, alarms and notifications (optional). Tody puts you in control of your cleaning routines instead of cleaning routines controlling you. ● Turn home cleaning into a game. House members can sync plans across devices and users and check-in to claim credit for their actions. ● Enjoy an extremely easy and intuitive set up of a customized cleaning plan. ● Tody can be customized and scaled to fit almost any needs. It thus suits singles as well as complex households with many members. Even professionals find Tody to be their preferred tool. Recommended by marthastewart.com, Buzzfeed and MacWorld.

  • Simply amazing!

    I can assign tasks to any member of the family, track effort(which equates to payments for kids chores) and keeps track of what needs doing when. This is the first app the effectively eliminates my having to tell everyone what needs doing. It’s hands off for mom and the house is actually getting clean!!
  • Life Changing App

    It’s very easy to keep doing the daily tasks like vacuuming and dusting and letting the more infrequent tasks slide (like vacuuming under the fridge or cleaning out the pantry). This app makes sure that you are addressing all of your cleaning tasks on a schedule that suits you. It takes some time to get it set up, but once you do, you just let the app tell you what you need to get done. My home is cleaner and my life is calmer. They also have extraordinary customer service. After an app update, there were some issues. I emailed the developer and they worked closely with me to get them resolved. Great app. Great support. Great value!!!
  • Functionality is great but know what works for YOU

    I like the concept and functionality of this app but, as with any system, there’s a learning curve to see what works for you personally. I admit that I am not a good housekeeper because I don’t have cleaning habits established. I thought this app would help with that. Instead I found myself ignoring the notifications or doing things but not updating the app. Recently I switched phones and had to start over. Setting up tasks made me realize I am most effective using Tody not for daily tasks, but for tasks that occur every 2 weeks, months, etc. For regular cleaning, I’m better when I have a schedule (It’s Thursday so I clean the bathroom, not Tody said I’m due to clean the bathroom).

    I like this app as far as it helps keep me on top of cleaning. In fact, I do some of my house work before it needs to be done just so I can keep it green rather than turning orange or red. So if you want to know if I think you should purchase this, my answer is a big fat YES. However, this is where I get picky and tell you things that don’t really impact the usefulness of the app, it’s more of a pet peeve situation: I would prefer that it be more streamlined...instead of giving the option of either entering 14 days or two weeks, just go with one option. They’re the same. I can understand things like 8 or 9 days, 15 or 16 days but 14 days vs 2 weeks? I don’t love that. I would also like a different layout, or at least the option of different layouts. I’m a visual person and I need lots and lots of color coding rather than the standard few available with this app. Again, the app is useful and does what I need it to, I would just like to see a few tweaks here and there.

    Update: with the most recent update, I lost my whole plan, but when I emailed customer service, they worked with me to get everything back within a couple hours!

    It works for me. I can adjust it and it lets me know what areas need more cleaning the other. Keeps things streamlined for me.

    Recently, an update caused a major problem with the App but communication from the developer was quick and a resolution and restoration of data was accomplished within one day. Great customer service!!

    Even with the recent update that supposedly fixed th syncing problem, it’s not syncing. Wiped out my chores top and only an old backup is available.
  • Update broke the app

    The recent update broke syncing across our different devices. The second update to that deleted all of our chores and history that we had spent months using and fine tuning.
  • Deleted my plan and progress.

    Had an update intro when I opened the app this evening, and my plan is gone. When I re-sync, nothing loads. Husbands phone can get in fine, but I’m shut out. Super unhappy for a paid app.

    If you are a single person or all of you family has iOS devices this is a great app. However it doesn’t have a sign in so my partner can’t see the tasks when he downloads the android version, and there is no way to synchronize.
  • Helpful for Large Families!

    By Kylajuly08
    We have seven children, and Tody lets me assign tasks to everyone in the family. I can see who has done (or not done) their chores, pause tasks when when we have events or illness, easily edit priorities... it’s a fantastic tool for our family! My only reason for not giving 5 stars is that it seems to reset the timer for tasks based on a clock instead of calendar. For example, I have empty trash listed as a daily task for one of the children. They marked it off yesterday after school, and in the “To Do” list, it shows up that it is “due tomorrow”. I’m assuming it will refresh and say “due today” around 4:00 this afternoon. This doesn’t prevent you from marking it off early, but it does make looking at the tasks coming up a bit wonky. I would love to see this issue fixed, but Tody is still being used and appreciated daily in our home!
  • This is a great app for depressive people

    I honestly thought housekeeping was very complicated because I’m not great at organizing. This app helped me lay things out where I didn’t feel totally overwhelmed. I was able to set it to where I had a certain amount of things to do every day and it reminds me about the stuff I wouldn’t do without reminding. I was even able to set the chore list from times when I just needed the bare minimum to when I felt like I wanted to be totally accomplished. The set up took me a little while (not in a bad way, no app like this is going to be personalized to your own houses first!) but it works great with the reminders and little charts of when things should be done

    I love this app. I kept a clean steak going for 5 months, a personal record. When it all piled up, the red bars helped me realize I had fallen off and fix it. I plan to use it for a whole household eventually. I have one complaint: I want to recommend this to everyone I know. Shout it from the rooftops. I have to constantly temper that with “well. There’s no android version. But...” Please make an android version.
  • Amazing App to Help Clean!

    By Lynndzee
    Like many, I hate cleaning. I didn’t get my moms obsessive compulsive cleaning gene. But, I like a clean house. However, I often feel overwhelmed with the many tasks that need to be done. This eliminates that issue. I scheduled a millions tasks (mostly custom but I also used many of the built in ones that reminded me of some tasks I usually forget) and did them based on room of the house. I also scheduled things like home services that need to be done occasionally such as service heater/air conditioner, get taxes done, get Fireplace chimney sweep, change blue Apple filters in fridge (to keep fruits/veggies fresh), change air filter, clean vacuum filter, and so many more). I scheduled myself to dust one item (bookshelf, tv console, etc) a day to keep up on dusting so it’s pretty much always clean. This is my favorite app and pretty sure the only one I’ve ever reviewed lol. Thank you!!!

    I don’t ever pay for apps but this one was very highly recommended. I’m so glad I did. I can stop trying to remember when I did things around the house, it just tells me when and what needs cleaning. Way more detailed and customizable than I had expected too!
  • Best app EVER

    By done now time to play
    So easy to customize and adjust tasks and areas. Not overwhelming by day to day chores. Takes the thought out if what needs to be done and can easy see what been done and by whom. Worth every cent.
  • Life changer!

    I have never written a review before, but I am compelled to for this app. I have ADHD...and three small children, a husband, and a dog. All of that equals a house that stays messy until one area or another is so filthy I finally take notice and clean it. Before this app, I honestly couldn’t tell you the last time I cleaned ANYTHING, because I have a very distorted sense of time and an unreliable memory. Now, my mind is at ease. After I clean something I don’t have to think of it again until the app reminds me of it. Also it sort of game-ifies maintaining a clean home, also great for engaging my ADHD brain. All in all, I don’t remember what I paid for this app, but whatever it was, it isn’t enough!
  • Tody is not a chore to use!

    The app is intuitive, feature rich and aesthetically pleasing. I really enjoy using it; which is a huge compliment for a chore app.
  • Family Chores Accomplished!

    By BristolBec
    I have struggled with how to get the family more involved in chores. This is great! Room by room you can list chores on their own individual schedule. And the app has so many preloaded. Now the girls get an allowance based on if all their chores are completed on time! What a joy! Thank you!! Our house has never been so clean!
  • Great app...one issue though

    By All4JesusAll4Him
    I love this app. It has an easy set up! It shows your progress in pictures and in colored bars. It has the same feel at Fitbit. The only issue I have (unless I missed this feature) is that it should have an alarm to remind you do whatever is due. I sometimes forget to check it and then come back and everything is red and orange. If y’all could fix or add that feature this app would be close to perfect.
  • Best cleaning app!

    It really helps me to stay organized, I love that I only had to pay for it once and not a monthly deal like 99% of apps now a days! Recommend 👍🏻👍🏻
  • Not syncing

    By Mom2erc
    I was hoping this app would help the whole family see what chores needed to be done. It doesn’t sync so it’s just on my device which is not convenient for the family to see what needs done. For $7 not worth it at all. I also wish the room lists would automatically populate and then we could delete as needed. Spent a ton of time setting up every room only to find out it doesn’t meet our needs. Really disappointing.

    By Duckieo
    This is the best cleaning app I have ever come across. I have a busy schedule with being a wife, mother, and having a career. Sometimes I get overwhelmed and don’t even know where to begin in the house. This app helps me break the tasks down into manageable pieces. I suggest loading all the preloaded tasks for each area of the house to start with and tweaking the time periods to your needs. Every busy woman should have this app. It has saved me thousands of dollars on a housekeeper, and my house is now always clean!
  • SO worth it

    I’ve never written an app review before but I felt compelled to with this one. It’s pricey but worth it. It’s like a to-do list but better. My habits are actually changing when it comes to keeping things clean. Love it!

    I really want to use this app but my daughter and I have apple phones and my sons and hubby have androids. The syncing with androids is not available so it makes this useless in that respect. ☹️

    I’ve been using Tody for 4 months to keep track of chores with my sister. I like everything about it except a few things. I don’t like that my sister’s bathroom tasks are listed on my feed, even though she set those tasks as her own responsibility. She hasn’t cleaned her bathroom for months and I hate seeing the red on my list! I get things done to see everything green. That’s really my main issue. I would also like if there was a way to swipe a task on the list and where it says “move, edit, delete” add an option for “complete” so I can quickly mark my tasks as done without entering each individual task. Or even just adding a check mark box next to each task. Any quick way to mark things complete on the list since I do tasks all at once usually. Also sometimes the days are not updated accurately until I refresh the page or app a couple times. Other than those issues, this has been a useful app to keep my chore list. I would recommend it, but only because I haven’t tried other apps and I’m not sure if there’s a better one out there.
  • Seriously amazing

    I am NOT a natural cleaner and this app is a game changer for me. I’ve tried several similar ones without the same kind of success. I’m a big list person but I have to generate those, yikes. I love the clear visuals of the now, OMG now, and later tasks. So wish there was also an Apple Watch app 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻 hoping that’s somewhere in future plans.
  • I love cleaning?!

    By Rawrawrrawr231123
    I got this app because I needed to keep track of when I last cleaned something. This app more than accomplished that task. I haven’t fully utilized the app with different users, but I aim to. In the meantime, I have started to actually clean a bit more than usual despite only having a relaxed/standard cleaning schedule. I love seeing when a room is green! I wish it would rank areas to focus on by need. Instead, it will list tasks that are the most urgent, but they may not be in the same room. Also, would be good to see which rooms all need the same task. For example, I like to clean mirrors all at once because it’s easy and more efficient that way.
  • Love this app!!

    This is THE app for organizing ALL tasks not just cleaning! I own a restaurant and use it for opening and closing checklists on an iPad, and for things I gotta do like check the mail or enter and pay bills, all of which are rooms in my "house". Life altering and thank you so much to the people who made this app!!

    I love this. I convinced everyone in my house to buy this app after being frustrated with no one taking responsibility to keep things clean. 3 weeks later our house is the cleanest it’s been since we moved in. Everyone feels better about doing chores when you get recognized for your effort!!

  • Needs more instruction

    By Irishw22
    I am super happy with this app and my kids are actually doing chores But I am super frustrated with the lack of instructions That post was yesterday 11/12/18.... but today is a new day. Sure, the app lacks a bit of instruction but if you take the time and be patient, the developer DOES respond to emails you send. I have had some very difficult issues come up with trying to sync the app and finding the user manager - but Peter has seriously been amazing. He has answered all 5 (yeah 5) emails I have sent within an hour, if not sooner but I have been cleaning the house and checking periodically, and he has been very sincere in apologizing for the frustration. He is a real person who knows there are issues but gives EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE! Patience is needed with the app but I would have paid $20 for an app that FINALLY had my teens (yes 2 of them) finally cleaning without arguing..... SAY WHAAAAAT?!

    This app is amazing and it's completely transformed how I do chores. My goals of becoming a domestic goddess seem so much more achievable now that I have a clearly organized list of what needs to be done and a framework for how often to do it. Even on days when I am feeling completely low energy and not up for taking on deep cleaning, the app helps me keep track of the little tasks that I can check off quickly and feel accomplished about. I love that everything is completely customizable to the unique needs of my home and my personal attitude about cleaning. I leave my setting 'relaxed' so that my deadlines are flexible with how I'm feeling, but I still have the option to be proactive and accomplish things ahead of time when I feel like it. My goal is to have a living space that's not clean, but also cozy and welcoming, so now that I'm on top of the basics, I can prioritize homemaking and positive energy (like burning sage or scented candles, making crystal grids for myself and loved ones, having fresh flowers, baking special treats, seasonal decorating) in my routine. I would love it if Tody also had a widget so that I can see at a glance what chores need to be worked on without opening the app. Overall, this app is life changing and worth way more than the paid price. I never write reviews for apps - this is my first one - but I had to express my appreciation for the impact this has made on my productivity and the look and feel of my apartment. I would recommend this for anyone who wants to handle household chores with less stress, and especially anyone who has mental health issues that affect productivity such as depression and ADHD. Thank you sincerely to the developers.
  • October 2018 update needs work

    By LovinLife5678
    I love this app! I use it daily. The latest update to my phone or the app or both has made it so that tasks no longer synchronize between devices on my connected plan. It shows they are connected, but on one device it shows someone did 7 jobs and the other shows zero. I hope it gets fixed soon!
