If you’ve ever shared a house, you’ll no doubt know only too well that whilst there are plenty of positives, there can also be challenges galore! From organising household chores to splitting the monthly bills, it can often be far from easy.
Well...thanks to our latest Startup of the Week, that need no longer be the case.
Chored is an innovative new app which makes the practical elements of sharing a house a doddle!
Take those dreaded monthly utility bills for example. With Chored you can split the bills, with each housemate receiving notice of what their share of the bill is and then in turn using the app to pay that share directly to the utility provider in question. You can all also see who has paid and who hasn’t!
If however your house-share challenges relate more to those all-important household chores, you can use Chored to create a task list and a rota so that you’re all doing your fair share.
The app also has a geolocation feature so you can see at a glance who’s home. That can come in pretty handy when you do something like forgetting to turn the iron off - you’ll know exactly who to call to help!
One of the app’s features that we particularly like is The Fridge. In essence it’s like having a virtual fridge door in your smartphone! Need to leave a message or reminder note for your housemates? You can do it here. It can even be used as a place to store important info like your landlord’s contact details or a copy of your tenancy agreement. No more hunting around for that elusive document when you need it most!
From splitting bills to organising chores, Chored is an app with a straightforward mission - to make the process of sharing a house a much less problematic affair. And as those of us who have shared a house would no doubt vouch for, that is surely no bad thing!
