Given the high price of rental residences in major cities it's hardly surprising that there are more and more share houses these days with several people splitting the cost of the rent and household expenses. In many cases, the first time they meet each other is when they move in - especially when we are talking about student accommodation. It's all good fun at first. Parties every night and new friends to get to know. But then comes the crunch when the place starts to get dirty and one person ends up doing most of the cleaning and another gets lumped with buying the food. That's the point when new friendships can begin to fray a little and you might feel that a little intervention is needed.

Hearth is an easy to use and feature-laden home management app for Android, iOS and Web that acts as a household organizer for shared households and families. It shares chores, to-do's, bills, payments and shopping lists with cohabitants so that everyone gets to do their bit and avoid the feisty arguments that can crop up between family and friends who live together.

Just create your home group and invite your family or housemates to join you and you can automatically - and fairly - assign household chores and split the bills between everyone. Hearth will even suggest the most common chores that need to be done to make life even easier. Rather than one person getting the reputation as the house nag, its the app that will remind housemates which chores they are responsible for and which bills they need to budget for.

Lets face it, nobody likes coming home to a messy house and finding no food in the fridge. Hearth lets you and your housemates work together to keep your home clean, tidy and stacked with enough food - all from one simple app. Within its virtual walls you can shares your communal chores, tasks, events, polls, payments and shopping lists to take a lot of the confrontations out of living together. There’s even a competitive element where you can build your 'harmony score' by competing and co-operating with your friends or family to get the highest rating.

Cohabiting with others isn't easy. Splitting household bills and confronting people who may not be pulling their weight are two of the biggest causes of friction between housemates. Hearth takes away much of the household angst by assigning chores fairly, tracking payments and keeping everyone up to date on what they need to do. The app is ever evolving and, if there's something you think should be added or removed, feel free to let the developers know. Hearth is the free-est, the fastest, the easiest and the coolest way to organize your home needs and harmonize your home.
