Chore Checklist helps you manage chores at home or other places. It records chores’ completion date and calculate next due date based on your preference. The “automatic reset” feature always gives you fresh start of each recurring chores. It resets daily chores after midnight(or any hour you specify in “Settings”). For weekly, monthly or other recurring chores, it resets the progress based on conditions(see “Automatic Reset” section in Help for more detail).
It comes with a pre-loaded check list which has routines, such as “Daily Routine”, “Weekly Routine”, “Monthly Routine” and etc. You can edit them or add new routine/chores. You can set star/end date, reminder, progress and notes for each chore.
You will need to install this app on your phone(not SD card) in order to add widget to home screen.
The app also allows you to create multiple lists. In “Due Date View”, user can combine multiple lists into one view sorted by due date.
In full version, there are also statistics reports to record chore completion history. With separate purchase of Chore Checklist Cloud Connector, the full version users can sync/backup to cloud and share their lists between devices and users. We also provide free online editor at http://www.dotnetideas.com for easy list editing.
**Upgrade from Lite to Full app:
When you upgrade from lite to full, you can use the “Backup and Restore” feature to migrate your data.
To backup your lists, open the lite app and click on “Menu”->”Backup and Restore”->”Backup” in Routine View. Then click on “Backup” to use the default folder or “Select Folder” to choose different location.
Then open the full version, click on “Menu”->”Backup and Restore”->”Restore”. It will open default backup location. Choose the folder which contains backup files and click on “Restore”. If you have chosen different backup location, then navigate to that location and click on “Restore”.
