Confused by the bills you need to track in your shared home? Tired of using an spreadsheet and working out the formulas? Housemate’s Companion by Slamdunk Software comes to your rescue. It’s brand new and looks exactly like the basic tool that everyone needs. It not only offers easy management of the bills, it sends the bills to your housemates through email and allows you to track payment. If you have the confusing scenario of people moving in and out, Housemate’s Companion can simply figure out who owes whom what.
Along with bill management, the next difficult thing for housemates is managing the chores. Housemate’s Companion has a chore roster ability allowing chores to be rotated fairly. The roster can be emailed or printed. The author have also added the ability to send landlords notifications of problems. It also tracks the security deposit (bond in Australia).
It has a nice look and a straightforward interface. A series of video tutorials will show you what it looks like and how it can be used.
So far the software is only for Windows machines. Slamdunk Software (isn’t that a great name!) promise they are working on a Mac version and also an iPhone ap!
