I heard about this app from MacWorld, and recently downloaded it to start tracking my younger daughters weekly chores and allowance. Its very easy to set up family members and their individual jobs, as well as track what theyve done or havent done. I really like how you can define "core" jobs that must be done for some parts of the allowance (like cleaning their room or doing the dinner dishes), plus optional jobs they can do to earn extra (like feeding the cats their dinner). I also like that each job can have its own schedule, so if something should be done twice a week Ill see right away if it was only done once. Its also great for "spending" since its all virtual. If theres something my daughter wants on Amazon or the App Store, we just see if she has enough allowance built up and then deduct the cost. I put it on my credit card and theres no need to pull cash out of a piggy bank or anything. But my daughter still learns the importance of earning money instead of just being given it, and of saving up for things that are important to her instead of always impulse buying as soon as she has the money. Great job!

Very handy app, makes allowance tracking and spending much easier!
Kids love it. Used an old original iPad and a wall mount and were the coolest appy family in town!
Has everything I need
Great app, keeps the kids stuff getting. Great for people usually operates with credit. Still gives the kids a chance to save
Helpful but could be better
We use this app to keep track of how much our son has in allowance money. A lot of the things he wishes to purchase are online (in app purchases, stuff from Amazon etc) so its easier if his allowance is electronic instead of him always reimbursing us with cash whenever we use our credit card to buy something for him. I deducted a couple of stars because reviewing spending is kind of a pain. There is only a graph view and it isnt very detailed. For example, when I deduct money from my sons allowance I can enter a note specifying what the purchase was (for example, "new video game"). Unfortunately I have no idea where that note goes because it doesnt appear on the graph and Ive found no other way to view spending. I wish there was a simple list view that showed all transactions and their associated data.
Great app. Worth purchasing.
I too went through several free apps looking for all the features I wanted. In particular ability to sync with childs mobile device. This app is the winner. Happy to find it. Thanks to other reviewers who compelled me to take a chance and pay for this one. Glad I did!
Keeps track of me too!
We rotate chores between 5 kids at our house and this app has been just what we needed to keep track of who does what. Some jobs are m-f, some are every other week and some are Saturday only and they all rotate. It was easy to set up and works great! We havent remembered often to check "done" jobs for allowance, but if only for keeping track of who does what its been worth it. I actually (the mom) put chores in there for me too sometimes.
this is the best app. no more fussing about who didnt do anything and who did stuff. No more fighting about allowance. This is a lot better than a $20 chore chart. I definitely recommend getting this app.
