Cant "get started" The first page where you select kids and pets has a Next button, but then the next page that asks what else you take care of says to select all that apply but doesnt go anywhere after that. No Next button to proceed. Not a very useful app

Sabrine Bellekom-Vermaas

Incomplete, needs many more functions and functional improvements to work well. Great concept though. Can not edit tasks. Can not check or change settings that I chose at start of app. Can not share tasks with housemate. Needs more regular cleaning suggestions and setup questions like: how often do you wash windows, clean bathroom, etc. Back button works very inconsistently. Keeps crashing on clicking suggestion answer. Uninstalled, gave up, shame, could have been good. No support response.

Dawn Waller

Dont like or dislike, i couldnt find out. Reinstalled and all it does ask if i have if i have kids or pets then next wjat i take...nothing after that no next button does not ask for email to make a account nothing. It just sits there for 2hours i left it alone and nothing. Uninstalling again. Finding different app. Sorry

Kelvin Smith

Where is the homepholio? I got this service mostly for the ease that is take me to organize what is in my home. I need the information about my appliances or sizes or colors on my cell phone. Not just on my computer! PLEASE add homepholio to the app. I may just find another service. or make my own!

Angie Milwaukee

A homeowners handy friend Original rating in Summer 2014 was 2 stars: Loved it on my iPhone but it never installs on my android. I've tried repeatedly for months with no success. Fall 2014. All's well now and I'm changing my review from 2 to 5 stars. 75% of the articles/ ideas are excellent. 15% are common sense (to me). 10% don't apply to my home. I recommend this app to homeowners every chance I get.

Derek Highet

Good app. But everytime the screen turns off it returns you to the main screen. So if you're in the middle of a task, good luck finding it again...

Cassie Fell

Keeps crashing Every time I try to answer my weekly questions it keeps crashing. Love the ideas but please fix!

Heather M

Highly annoyed The fact that you don't have an option to stop the ANNOYING push notifications is making me UNINSTALL. I've had the notifications wake me up in the middle of the night...WTF??? Allow users to change whether they want the push notifications or not and tyis app would be amazing!

Samantha Hohl

Absolutely wonderful app, however, every time I try to take the quiz to receive more suggestions, the app crashes. Otherwise, I love it!!

Roger Morris

Samsung galaxy note 3 Start up, shuts down. Junk. I deleted it.

Ashley Stevens

Annoying problem. I like to scroll through the lists, but when I click into an article and go back to the list it takes me back to the top. I end up scrolling quite awhile to get back to the place I was. Otherwise, nice app. Galaxy S5

Shawna Chevallier

Won't let me sign up! Stops at second question :(

Mariya Afonina

Menu doesn't show full selection Seems to have a glitch: doesn't show all sections that I selected on the menu. Oh well

Sarah Rachel

Would love to be able to access home folio in app.

michelle hosgood

Awesome Wish there was a way to skip over the ones you've already seen though so you can go through all three information without scrolling through everything again. But it's still amazing.

Sheri Parente

Great Great App! Got a lot of great tips for cleaning, cleaning out my fridge now so looking for tips on that!!

Andrea Sheow

Can't get started No next button after kids and pets

Moses Njuguna

Love the website, not the app I can log in fine into the website, the app will not authenticate even after password resets. The username and password work for the website

Norm Lewis

Who knew? What an eye opener, wow! Any Guy that have no idea on how to keep a house, safe for life. This app is needed. ( who knew?)

Jody Ancar

Implement Google Sign In Please implement Google Sign In and not just Facebook

Faith Long

Too slow I really love the idea and the way this app is set up however it's just simply too slow. I'm very sad

Dave Hampton

A little maintenance can save you tons Ounce of prevention. Pound of cure. This app is amazing in helping and motivating you to keep your home up. Awesome

Kel E

Wonderful Has great ideas and keeps my cleaning on track

Wanda Kemper

This app is very informative

A Google User

Lots of bugs. If I favorite something, it takes me back to the top of the list. Annoying.

Caspar Helmer

Installed but not showing in app list On HTC One 4g 4.4.2,5.5). v1.0.1: share on fscebook (doesn't update automatically); v1.0 - try it out.

Kurt W

Useless If you have no common sense this app will be helpful otherwise a waste

Quinn Davis

Great content Really like all the helpful suggestions. And I like that is you can stop up reminders for the cleaning tips.

Carol Baird

Brightness app Very handy. Easy to find topics. Easy to find advice

LadyLinda Hernandez

Angus list All of it

Justin Hunter

Neat A neat little app. Love it really. Instead. Of looking up tips on what I normally think of to do around the house it has it all in one place. No crashes. Runs smoothly. Great app. 5 stars.

Terry Wilcox

Its ok Not the best design kinda clunky. Big annoyance is after reading article and pressing back you lose your spot and have to start over.

Kristi Kraft

Love!!! Can't live without this besides my bible!

gerald hill

When are u going to fix it! Can't register through this app. I'm not getting a Facebook acct. I registered at your website, still can't use it. I can't log on! I see that this been a problem for a half a year. You guys are sure on top of it! Great job!

mojo l

Pretty good Pretty good. Definitely has potential! As other users have said, it does crash at a higher than normal rate. I love the articles and the way you can search by category. It would be very nice though if there were a way to reject articles you're not interested in so they stop showing up. There is also a minor bug where after you add an article to favorites, the page resets completely and you have to load new results, many of which you may have already marked as favorites or aren't interested.

Vanesa Sapundzhieva

I really like the ideas but it has some bugs sometimes and would be better if there were quiz every week or two.

Cynthia Jade

I love this app, but I do not have constant internet access, I wish there was an archive option available.

Leona Dorothy

Great tips; interface could use improvement I love the household tips I can find through this app. The scheduling interface is very clunky, though. Why isn't there a calendar? I want to see what day I'm choosing. Also, the scheduling feature lacks in that when I mark something ad completed, I can't reschedule it. Is that by design? I'm hoping there are regular updates that will come and improve some of these things. But overall it's a helpful app.

Andrew Lambrecht

I like the app so far but its a bit jumpy, wish there was settings to adjust a few things/customize it

Ken Godwin

Uninstalled - cannot disable notifications I prefer to have control over the amount of notifications an app is allowed.

Becky Riopel

Keeps crashing I love the idea behind it and what I saw was great but it is super disappointing that it keeps crashing when I click on some articles.

Laura Taylor

Update? Just wondering if this app has been abandoned or something. Haven't seen an update to it in a long time. ??

Tiffany Kjar

Won't open I tried to download & open the app 3 times.?

Matt Black

Crashes on account sign up App crashes on creating a new account. Not sure if Facebook accounts work.

Megan Giuffrida

Downloaded it multiple times. Crashed on second screen of set-up.

Corey Jones

:( Can't even get started, it won't let me get through the sign up. What's the deal yo.

Suzanne Donlon

Crashes alot but I like it

Elis G

Can't use? I cannot give an honest review of this app because I couldn't even use it. I tried to do the sign up; however, when I get to second question I can't get to the next button... Is there any way to fix this?

gerald hill

I change my rating from 1 to 5 star. I use it all the time; great info! I wish they would provide info more often.

Ashleigh Banks

Great when it works I really find this app very useful, but it now won't let me log in through Facebook. If this can be fixed, I'd love it.

Billie Ann Stephen

Sad! This app won't let me go farther than to punch in I have a home, lawn, garage, pool & what not. There's no next button or anything to go forward from there. Please help me...

Carey Cheek

Not compatible with HTC Downloaded app got to second question and there is no next button. PLEASE FIX ISSUE!

cmcvey mcvey

Lags This app is alright, but it's so slow! Whether you use wifi or data it takes painfully long to move items to lists or to load additional suggestions when you scroll down. I thought by now the developers would have updated this, but I guess not.

Domenique Wilson

No good Does not work I'm uninstalling now

Tiffany Kjar

Won't open I tried to download & open the app 3 times.?

Marsha Sampson

Great Easy to use

Tai C.

Notifications I like the concept of the app a lot. But why it needs to send me notifications at 11 at night or 3 in the morning asking what project I want to tackle next is beyond me. There is no setting within the app to turn off these push notifications.

Josée Gravelle

Crashes I was excited to see an app as I have an email subscription to this site which is wonderful. Except I can't even sign up... it keeps crashing! Please fix this I would love this app if only it worked.

Ethan Hartman

Can't use Facebook login Trying to log in with Facebook and nothing happens... Had to reset my password to log in
