Volunteer-O-Matic – Randomly Choose From a List of Names (or numbers)

Available In: App Store       Price: $0.99  

Volunteer-O-Matic Having a hard time deciding who’s turn it is to make the coffee run or who’s turn it is to pick up the tab or even who’s turn it is to take out the garbage? Volunteer-O-Matic is the app for you. A simple, yet handy, application that allows you to randomly choose from a list of names (or numbers).

So lets say you need to decide who’s turn it is to make the coffee run at work. Just create a “Coffee Run” list and add the names of the people in the office. Then, give it a “spin” and it will randomly choose a name from the list.

One cool feature of the app is the ability to remove a name from the next spin. That way if Mike isn’t at work that day, you can temporarily remove his name from the list. You can remove as many people as needed from the next spin then, just reset the list to bring the names back.

As simple as this application is, it is very well designed and has a great user interface. It is worth the $0.99 to prevent the five minutes wasted while everyone tries to decide who’s turn it is to get coffee!
