What is Ten Minute Tidy?

Ten Minute Tidy is a simple little app for families and housemates to manage household chores.

Your chores are divided into "ten minute" jobs, which can be given to individual household members, with one tap of your finger. 

Once a job is assigned to a person, it can be auto-assigned the next time it needs to be done. Or you can move the job to assign to a different person.

Customize this application for all your family and household and get everyone involved in the weekly chores!

Why is Ten Minute Tidy useful?

1. You don't need to write up chores each week. You don't need to find paper or pens.

2. You have a permanent record of who completed their jobs and who didn't. 

3. Previous jobs are automatically assigned to the best person. 

4. New jobs are shared evenly between all family members.

5. Instantly see how many jobs each person has, to keep it fair. 

6. Have a record of how many jobs were done and how long each job took.

7. Now in version 1.1, jobs are displayed in red if they are overdue, and grey if they are not due yet.

8. Also new in 1.1., you can now change place icons to suit your own places.
