by Phil Hornshaw

Organize your and your roommates’ chores with Chorma, today’s first app worth downloading, which helps you keep track of who’s responsible for what and sync the list with each other’s iOS devices. Next, clothing store chain H&M’s official app lets you shop for and share your favorite outfits. And for your daily game there’s Room Escape – 100, an environmental puzzler in which you have to find five keys hidden around a locked room.

Chorma (Free)

What’s it about? To-do list app Chorma organizes chores among roommates, allowing you to keep track of what everyone needs to do and completion dates.

What’s cool? Living with other people can be stressful, especially when it’s not clear who’s responsible for what around the house. Chorma helps alleviate some of the tension by keeping things organized, syncing lists of chores among all the roommates on their iOS devices, so everyone knows what’s expected of them. The app also awards users with “points” for their completed chores, so you have the framework for an incentive system among your roommates – such as a dinner out together in which the person with the most points pays the least, and so on.

Who’s it for? If you’ve got roommates and want an easy way to keep chores organized, Chorma’s for you.
