This is exactly what my partner and I have been trying to create on our own w/a shared Apple Reminders list but this is so much better and more comprehensive esp as a first time homeowner and old house owner.
I love that it tells me what I need to do to keep my home running smoothly - things I didn’t even know I needed to do. And I love that it tells me HOW to do them and what tools I might need and where I can find them. All the info right there in one spot with reminders so you don’t necessarily have to open the app every day. Super app!
I was educated on maintenance that needed to be done in my home that I otherwise would have forgotten about/not known about. There are no instruction guides when purchasing a home and this is helpful.

We've worked hard to make using Upkept as easy (and fun) as possible! Most items take 1-2 minutes to add to your Home Hub and some will only take a few seconds. As soon as you add an item, the maintenance plan, upkeep schedule, and reminders will be created automatically.
Upkept labels tasks—or "upkeeps" as we call them—as Basic, Advanced, or Pro.
Basic upkeeps can be done by most homeowners, even DIY beginners. These tend to be shorter tasks and they usually don't require special tools.
Advanced upkeeps can also be DIY tasks, depending on your comfort and level of experience. They might take more time, require special tools, or have special considerations; like needing to climb up on a roof. You might decide it's better to call a professional in for the Advanced upkeeps.
Pro-level upkeeps require a professional to do the tasks. These are usually related to servicing complex home systems, like a heater or water boiler, that require specialized experience or licensing.
Upkept doesn't rate or connect our users with 3rd party professionals, but for upkeeps we label as Advanced or Pro we do give suggestions on where to find someone—like specific professional association websites—how much you could expect to pay, and the basics of what you should expect from the service.

Depending on the number of items you'd like to add to your Home Hub, we recommend setting aside 45 minutes to an hour to set up your home. This will give you time to enter specific information about each appliance, system, and area of your home, allowing Upkept to do its magic and customize maintenance plans based on the specifics of your home.
