The Story of Roomity

about_blue.png

The Story of Roomity is a simple one. It starts out with a busy college senior named Ashley and her equally busy roommate. The two girls were trying to manage all of the responsibilities they had; such as work, school, relationships, and chores. Until one day they realized some of their responsibilities were slipping through the cracks.

In an effort to assist the roommates, Ashley started doing some research in hopes of finding an organizational app for roommates. However, her search was unsuccessful and a little disheartening because no app seemed to exist that filled their exact needs. Most of the organizational apps on the market today are based around families with small children or specific to college students searching for 'new' roommates. Ashley and her roommate qualified for neither of these and she felt sorry for all of the other shared households that were not even considered in these groups.

A household is considered “shared” if the residents are adult children who still live with their parents, married couples who live with a parent, or a set of roommates living together.

After digging deeper, Ashley decided she would take matters into her own hands and create a website and app that featured tools to assist the pair and other roommates who might be having similar issues and struggling to find simple solutions. Thus, Roomity was born! This website and app combination is now an easy resource for roommates of all kinds to create collaborative schedules, make connections with other roommates or find new ones, see listing recommendations, and so much more. Feel free to browse our website and app for helpful roommate advise and general assistance in any area you may need.
