MyChores Makeover

Saturday, July 28th, 2007

I’ve been working on this for a few weeks, but Harry Potter proved to be rather distracting! ;)
Tonight i have released the new-look MyChores, which is hopefully cleaner, more attractive, easier to navigate, and also lends itself more easily to new themes.

New shortcuts and new statistics

Sunday, March 4th, 2007
