Tasks and scheduling. The app comes with a couple of to-dos set up for you to use if you like, but creating your own is super simple. Just give it a name, select the participants, and then choose to auto-schedule it for convenience. You can pick the frequency, days of the week, and time of the day.
Expenses and settings. If you pay for something that everyone should chip in on, just create a new expense. Your roommates can then pay you back later. There are settings within the app to edit your Roof details, adjust your account information, and set up notifications for alerts and reminders.
What is it about?
Roof is a very simple-to-use app and if your roomies are all onboard, it can be quite useful. You can avoid the argument of whose turn it is to take out the trash or who owes who money for what. Simplify your roommate situation by keeping it fair with Roof.
For those who...
- Live with roommates
