12 Apps to Keep You From Hating Your Roommates

Living with roommates isn’t always easy. But as with most annoying tasks in life, you can download an app or two to help. There are many kinds of apps that you aren’t using, but should be. And for anyone sharing an apartment or a house with another person, we’d add apps that make it easier to deal with roommates to that list.

Download the right apps and you can avoid awkward confrontations with your roommate (or roommates). The right app can increase your odds of finding a roommate you won’t hate, for starters. Once you have a roommate or two, other apps can help you keep track of chores fairly. You can divide up expenses. And you can communicate with everybody in the house all at one time, which schedules may not permit you to do in person.

We don’t have a magic formula to ensure peace in your house or apartment. And we don’t have a perfect solution for making sure that you and your roommates don’t end up wanting to kill each other. But if living with roommates is a fact of life for you, we think that these apps will go a long way toward preventing passive-aggressive conversations, frequent confrontations, and a whole lot of awkwardness.

Living with roommates often means compromising — and figuring out whose turn it is to take out the trash or to choose a movie. Chooserrr makes it easier to share tasks and responsibilities. You can create tasks and the app will randomly pick someone who’s responsible. You can also play “Not It” if you need a fun way to figure out who’s going to clean the bathroom or scrub the microwave. And you can even chat with your roommates right in the app.
