Apps That Work for Flylady?

Do any of you have apps that work like a control journal? I've found a checklist app that I think will work, but I thought I'd ask first to see if any of you have one to recommend.

Yesterday I downloaded the Timer+ app (which is free) and it's great! You can set multiple timer presets and name them whatever you want (hot spot, room rescue, just 15 minutes, or whatever). You can also choose the alarm sound you want from 5 or 6 different sounds.

"HomeRoutines" (iPhone/iPad) is sort of like Flylady in that you set up zones and each week it switches to a new zone. Within that you can customize what kinds of things you want to clean each week.

There are also daily and weekly do to lists - I mostly use the weekly to keep track of stuff - vacuum, clean litterboxes, put away laundry. I STILL haven't gotten into the monthly "deep clean" sort of thing.

It's $5 and I think if you use flylady it's probably pretty good.

Yeah, HomeRoutines is the best one I've found so far. I think any issues that I'm having are due more to me than the app. :)

Yeah. Kind of like how the Dyson works great.....IF you use it. ;)

Another vote for HomeRoutines - I am absolutely in LOVE with that app!!! You can review it on their website if you are not sure about purchasing a $5 app (but I personally think it's been worth far more than I paid). They have tons of info and screenshots available so you can really evaluate it fully before making up your mind.

Does anyone know of an Android app?

It's what I use, you can get an app and it's cheaper than Home routines, as of this writing, 1-13-11 it's $1.99, regularly $3.99. The amazing thing is it has a website and you can build your routines into it and have daily, weekly or monthly repeaters. If you pay for the website you can have subtasks too, and you can print out your list as a security or for a spouse you don't want in your account.

The downside of course is that you have to enter your routines but, They're supposed to be YOUR routines that work for you and your family.

Looks like you can use ToodleDroid for ToodleDoo on Droid. I found it on the Market on my phone for free.
