Got a lot of small jobs that never seem to get done? Don't know where to start? Fascinated by physics simulations of paper bouncing around in a jar?

Job Jar can help!

Just enter your jobs and you're ready to go! Whenever you have some free time, give the jar a shake and watch the paper fly! Using our state-of-the-jar technology (and a lot of help from the Bullet physics engine), Job Jar will select the job most likely to lead to job satisfaction.

With support for multiple jars and users, Job Jar is great for families. Create separate jars for Dad, Mom, and each kid. Job jar makes mind-numbing chores fun again!
