6 Apps To Save Time While Doing Stuff Around The House

6 Apps To Save Time While Doing Stuff Around The House

Getting things done around the house — you have your ideal goals set for getting everything done, but the reality is that not everything gets done. There are probably lots of reasons. After all, things come up. You have your job to worry about, the kids or grandkids to keep up with, and hobbies that sometimes simply must take precedence. Fortunately, today’s tech-savvy society can help. Take a look at these apps, as well as this list from Time Magazine, to ensure you get organized and complete your entire checklist!

1. Brightnest

This is a free app for Apple users. It offers tips and suggestions on various topics of keeping house, such as cleaning out the fridge, making towels fluffier, and organizing your closet. It is divided into eight categories — healthy, green, savvy, curious, clean, handy, creative, hungry. Within the eight categories, there are multiple suggestions. Each suggestion is shown on a colorful card and is broken down into steps, which make the tasks doable. Following some of these suggestions can help you save time when doing various tasks around the house.

BrightNest is available for free on Android and iOS.

2. Chorma

This app is one that all members of the household can use interactively. If all members put it on their phone or iPad, they can see what chores need to be done and then choose which ones they would like to fulfill. Each chore will list the due date and points earned by completing the task. Each chore then can be assigned to members in the Chorma household. The points can be redeemed for something that all members in the house agree to, such as cookies, a movie, family pizza night, or whatever you choose. This app will give everyone more time because the household chores will be shared among all household members and will not fall on one person.

This is a free app for Apple devices.

3. Chore Checklist Lite

Android and Apple users alike can use Chore Checklist to get going on with cleaning the house. Sometimes, all you need to get motivated to get stuff done around the house and save time while doing it is to have a checklist ready to go and reminders set. The chore checklist app can be set up so that the user can list out everything that needs to be done with reminders and dates for when they need to be completed. Users can also opt for the regular version for $1.50, which unlocks multiple task lists.

Free for Android and for iOS.

4. Fairshare

A free app for Android and Apple users that is similar to Chorma is Fairshare. This app allows household members to interact with one another as they list out, assign, and complete household tasks. Each task, just like in Chorma, is assigned points. The points can be used as a competition or can be used as a team approach. For example, if an individual reaches 300 points, then everyone buys that person their favorite soda. Or, if everyone together reaches 1,000 points, everyone goes out to dinner together and splits the bill according to how many points each individual earned. This app also features a shared grocery list that each user can see and can check off when they have bought something from the list for the house. App users in the same household can also private message each other within the app.

Free for Android and for iOS.

5. Spring Cleaning Checklist

Android users can use the Spring Cleaning Checklist app for free. This app allows the user to organize their cleaning tasks into checklists for each room of the house. It also features cleaning tips and household trick videos. The checklist will help you to stay on task, thus reducing the time it takes to complete the cleaning chores. The cleaning tips and household tricks can arm you with instructions on how to do something specific, thus reducing the time you would have spent trying to figure it out yourself.

Free for Android.

6. Zillow Digs

A very inspirational app that not only helps you estimate the costs for repairs of things around your house, such as remodeling a kitchen or a bathroom, but you can also get real ideas. Browse from real-life examples and calculate what it will take for you to recreate the same look in your house. You can spend hours in this app alone.

Free for iOS.

Using one of these 6 apps can help you remember what you need to get done around the house, when it needs to be done, and how to do it, thus saving you time to be able to enjoy life by watching movies, playing games, reading books, or doing whatever else makes you happy. Also, to save money for the stuff you do around the house, be sure to see Reviewsters list of the best free shopping deal apps.

Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

Technology has taken a vantage leap in providing solutions for man. Before now, technology used to appear complex and would require a great deal of expertise to handle solutions available. Today, we have technology applicable in the simplest human activities as smart products with intelligent algorithms powering them as they make error-free judgments and provide intelligent and analytic solutions.

Does technology have all the answers?

This article from Credit Suisse, tells us that technology does not have all the answers because it has been found to exhibit “similar biases,” as humans. No one can discredit the impact of technology, but it is not totally free of human input and this is the reason we experience these biases in many areas we have technology holding foot.

Creating technological solutions transparently

This article suggests that the process of creating technological solutions be made transparent and subject to contribution from many people who would end up as users of the product – male, female, young, old, learned, unlearned and all other preferences as we have them. It also underscores the importance of having women on product development teams. This approach is not sure to eliminate all forms of bias, but it is a good way to start in order to appraise the full benefits of technology.

Technology as the connecting tool

Technology so far has been a major connecting tool amongst us humans. It is used and appreciated by all regardless of race, language and sex. In order to keep it less subjective to these arguments about human biases. I believe we should gather opinions on products and solutions before making them available to the public. This could be done by gathering input from intended target users and receiving feedback across the stages of production.

“Recognizing the problem is a start…success will depend on inclusive technologies that meet this vast untapped market.” This cannot be more apt especially at a time when we look up to technology for solutions. We should not muzzle our progress with technology by battling algorithm bias. The first way to avoid this battle is by reading this article here.
