The folks at Apartment Therapy recently compiled a list of apps to calm potential roommate squabbles over things like managing bills and collating grocery lists. It does seem like Splitwise would be a useful ledger, keeping digital tabs on who owes what.

Find My Cheese
Your gouda used to be in the fridge. Now it’s nowhere to be found.
