    I was looking for an app to manage the chore list. Found Cozi with great reviews so I downloaded it. But it was quite disappointing that it does not let me manage recurring todos, that makes it quite ineffective at managing chore list.
  • Love this app

    I love this app! It helps me and my husband stay on the same page and can add grocery items as needed during the week. TWO THINGS I wish it did: allow you to attach pictures to grocery items so I can remember which particular product we get for those we dont replenish often. Had an undo button - I deleted my grocery list showing someone the app!

    We love this app. I would love an expanded version that had a budget portion option and receipt and money tracking. Also an option for goals and tracking. I use a separate program called goals wizard that makes reoccurring stuff easy and you can check off daily. I would love something on here like that. It would be nice to consolidate everything into this app!! Love that you can uncheck lists to use again after you check them off. Love the journal part. Love the grocery lists and other lists.

    cozi (free edition) emails notifications of new events added, but not when those events are modified.
  • Fantastic!

    Cozi Gold is close to perfect as a family schedule organizer. We have used it for 4 or 5 years now and it is super! My one wish is that they add a comprehensive print function and yes, I would be willing to pay more for that capability.
  • Disappointing, especially for mobile use

    A desktop computer is necessary, and customer service is nonexistent. When I attempted to email customer service via the app, my email was returned as undeliverable due to an incorrect email address.

    Way too expensive for a subpar product & all sales final. (TLDR: Download TimeTree. More useful & FREE!) Thought we'd love Cozi, got Gold subscription ($29.99!) even tho we only upgraded for monthly view & search function. BUT... on included holiday calendar, Easter is missing. Their reasoning: Easter is not a federal US holiday. So I have to manually add it in, then create a reminder to manually add it in yearly since it falls on a different day every year. Unnecessarily tedious! Christmas Eve & New Year's Eve aren't included, among other holidays that likely affect users' schedules. Lazy programming! Cozi provides bare minimum, even to paying customers. Both views (List & Monthly) are difficult to sift through & visually separate. Design & typography needs work here. Not user-friendly: can't even double-click on a day in Month view to open up that day's events! Have to tap on the day in Month view then click Week view just to see that day. Simple functionality missing. All-day events do NOT show on lock screen widget. Even included holidays & added birthdays will NEVER show. If you manually add a holiday, you have to pick a time for it to show, but it ALSO doesn't show events where the START time has passed (not END time!), so you can't schedule it from midnight through 11:55pm; you have to schedule the start time for 11:55pm for it to show all day, but keep in mind the widget only shows TWO upcoming events, so if you have ANY other 2 events starting before 11:55pm, the workaround doesn't work until it's 1 of the last 2 events of the day. Pretty useless. You can't add a Contact in manually, you have to have the contact created in your phone, then import it into Cozi. It pulls photo, phone numbers, physical addressees, emails & notes. Doesn't import URLs saved to that contact. Workaround: add URLs into Notes field but then it's also that way in your phone unless you change it, import it, & change it back again. & you'd have to do it every time any info changes because you can't edit Contacts in the app!!! Cozi must think people pay for mobile app subscriptions just to be forced to login on a computer for more useful functions. Features that sound cool that you don't actually use: "Themes" - all it really does is barely change the colors on your list & month view. The "image" for the theme only shows on the "Family" tab which should really be labeled "Settings" & who gives a flying flip how pretty the SETTINGS screen is? Would have made more sense to have the home screen or calendar be prettified but nope, just the one "settings" screen. No one uses the Recipes section. No reviews listed so to check if a recipe is worthwhile, you have to click the link Cozi pulled it from & check the website in Safari. Don't expect AllRecipes, it's 5-6 selected recipes from 6 categories, plus a list of about 75 of "Cozi's picks." Anything else, you have to add by URL. It's easier to just bookmark in Safari. Journal is lacking: you can only post a plain text description with 1 image. You can't add multiple images like an album from a family gathering, a video, a PDF/document, URLs, there's no text formatting, & you can't "like" or "comment" so no clue if anyone's even seen it. It also feels counterintuitive to have the Journal here (a perceived "Settings" area), would make more sense on the home screen as a "feed." You don't get notifications for new journal entries like you do for calendar events. Shopping & To Do lists are basic. You can't add anything to your list in uppercase because it creates a sublist with that as the heading. If you click on the heading to change it back to a list item, it forces the word to title case. (Ex: "Add Medication" is different from "ADD medication") It's also silly that you have to swipe to edit a list name instead of it being in the menu options inside the list. Different family members can "own" a to do list (not shopping) but it doesn't change anything except the color of the title icon. Every member can see & edit all lists. Would be nice to make certain lists private & only allow its owner & selected members to view. What if my spouse & I want to make a list of things needed for our daughter's surprise party without her seeing it? We're right back to using shared Reminders or Notes in iOS. You can add URLs in your list items now, but no attachments. If I want my spouse to pick up something they've never seen, I end up texting a picture & eliminating that use for Cozi. (iOS Notes allows attachments.) Home : I do enjoy the colored dots that show next to upcoming events but we never remember who is what color, so it's not useful. Maybe add an expandable key/legend? My biggest gripe with the home screen is lack of customization. It only shows upcoming events & the last-edited shopping list & to do list (according to Cozi: "when the algorithm works" anyway.) Would be more useful to allow users to choose which lists (as in multiple) & organize how these are shown here. The last-edited list isn't always the most important or needed. We love using TimeTree because we have multiple calendars, each shared with specific people that can add events to it as well, & the ability to copy events between calendars or see all calendars together to ensure no double-bookings or schedule conflicts. Also a feed showing any activity on the calendars, by whom, with options to like, comment, or add a photo to the activity. Monthly view & search function included, too. 😱 Really wanted to love Cozi, but only resentful having wasted $30 on something we were doing for free (& better) in iOS. (I can just tell Siri to add something to my store list!) Especially now that we've found a free app that does everything (calendar-wise) with quality functionality & a MUCH better user interface that doesn't crash, Cozi is just overpriced with not enough features -- more of a beta product that needs to be user-tested, given feedback on, & highly improved before selling at such a high, nonrefundable price.
  • Awesome application

  • Seems to do it all except one major thing...

    I have been trying to find the perfect calendar app and so wanted it to be Cozi, but syncing calendars through iCloud is a must. I understand you can set it up so that Cozi can access my events, but it can only read them, not add to it. That just seems to be a nightmare waiting to happen
