I'm using this to manage 5 kids and their chores. We currently use the accumulated "rewards" from chores as each child's "slush" fund for those time they want something in a store or wish to go out with their friends and need cash. (We chose not to use the allowance feature which is more of a cumulative grant). Application is very good with recurring chores for each child. It took a bit of setup for each child since they have daily and weekly items they must complete. You can't create a chore applicable for each child and assign to all kids. Instead, you need to create for each child. Reassignment of one child's chore to another is not possible (ex: two kids swap kitchen duty days in a given week.) Also can't remove a recurring chore from a child for a one-time schedule change. So, there are plenty of opportunities to improve this app. However, even with the limitations, this has by far worked the best for our family. Each of my 5 have their own device and a specific passcode so they can mark chores complete. They learned very quickly they need to complete chores on the day assigned and they can't mark something complete which was supposed to be completed in the past. Side note: Even though we are only using rewards for each chore completed, you could make chores required for a weekly allowance.

This is a good easy to use app to get our child motivated to do chores. I also like that you can add rewards and punishments. It works great using different devices and updates almost instantly when you make a change on one device. This was a must have for us to allow our daughter to use her iPhone/iPod to manage her chores. We have seen a huge improvement in her chores already even weeks later. It is very easy to add or remove specific chores. It is also great that we can use money in the account at the store instead of having cash if we want. Super easy. A few things that need improvement is that it's difficult to approve chores. You have to open each one in the list to see what the child has completed. It would be nice to see the detail listed already instead of having to open each one to verify. Also if you could sort those chores marked as complete or not complete instead of just having a simple list. Another thing I would like to see is the ability to withhold allowance for one day instead of only getting the choice for one week. So we only use the monetary amount for rewards and punishments. Also when a reward is added I wish the child could see it on their main screen. The only way they see it is to go into another area detailing money's. This would be more incentive. Overall we are happy with the app but there are definitely improvements that can be made to make it more user friendly and rewarding.

This is a great app. My kids and I use it everyday to keep track of chores and allowance. I used to forget if I paid them their weekly allowance and I had a hard time tracking if there jobs were done. Not anymore. They know what they need to do everyday and I know exactly how much money they have in their “Mom Bank”. No more having to get cash every week. If they want cash no problem but a lot of the time they just ask me to make purchases for them and then I simply log the expenditure in the app. It’s super easy to assign chores and if it’s one you’ve used before you can grab it from a list of previously used. I love that you can schedule a chore daily, weekly, or monthly and set what day of the week it needs to be done. You can also set one time chores that don’t repeat. And you can set to have allowance paid automatically or with your approval. The graphics are pleasing. And although not the most important thing, I love how the background changes to fit the chores that day. It’s fun! And best thing about this app is the customer service. Every time I’ve had a question or an issue they have responded promptly and happy to help. I wish that weren’t so rare these days. Keep up the great work guys. Watching this app grow with time and keep getting better has been a pleasure. Totally worth the price!

This app works wonderfully for tracking chores and allowance. Even more than that, it allows users to also track savings accounts and spending to show them exactly how much money they have (and keeps track of what they spent their money on). Because the app syncs across devices, it allows me to input chores on my phone and my son to cross them off on his iPod Touch. My son likes how easy it is to check off his chores and how the app graphs the amount of money in his savings account so that he can easily see how much money he'll have by a certain date. One of the nicest features is how customizable the schedules are for setting chores--chores can be repeated daily, weekly, or monthly and can be set for any days of the week or month. That makes it so I can easily set one chore to be completed every fourth Saturday while setting another chore to be completed every Monday and Thursday and yet setting other chores on daily schedules. The interface is nice, and the functions are user-friendly. My only suggestion for the developers is to incorporate the ability to set non-monetary rewards for specific chores so that large projects could earn a special trip to the zoo or a special dinner. Even without that feature, though, I still rate it as a five-star app because of how much it motivates my son to keep up with his chores.

I love this app..... I have typically used the standard handwritten chore chart. We all put forth a strong effort in the beginning, but soon it becomes another piece of artwork on the side of the refrigerator. My family is all about technology so this is perfect.....the app will send them notifications to encourage them to complete their chores. I of course will still be providing reminders but the less I drone on the more success I see. They will also be able to see their "bank" and their "graph" with their projected income. How awesome is that? Again....I know it's virtual but the concept is very tangible. The best part....should I need to correct behavior I can deduct from their account. Yes! That will have an impact.....no one likes to see their hard earned money taken away. Now for positive reinforcement.....they can be paid a bonus money too for whatever I deem extra effort or just for not "rocking the boat" during the school week. Yippee! You can also assign each chore a monetary value as well. Set them up daily, weekly, monthly or one time only. My boys will have the app installed on their iPads and it will kindly remind them to do their chores. Whoever designed this.....you deserve a job at Apple working on the latest and greatest! You are a genius! Thank you.....🙌
