OurHome is a task management app with a gamified twist. While there are plenty of apps designed to help families manage common household chores, it can be difficult to get each family member to actually complete different tasks. This app uses a gamified platform to encourage each person to pitch in around the house.

OurHome is a mobile app that helps, families, couples and roommates create task lists for common household chores. When each task is completed, the user is rewarded points based on the value of the core. When a certain number of points is accumulated, users can redeem rewards such as new toys or a fun outing with the family. The gamified system thus uses tangible rewards as an incentive for completing less-than-enjoyable tasks.

Unlike other productivity app that pit users against strangers, OurHome creates a tiny social network for families and roommates to track the completion of household chores.
