Description

Allowance & Chores Bot makes it easy to keep track of your family's allowances and chores. With Allowance & Chores Bot, children won't lose or misplace paper money and you won't have to keep track of allowances and chores by hand. If your family has more than one device, Allowance & Chores Bot will automatically keep your whole family’s allowances and chores in sync. Unlike other allowance and chore apps, Allowance & Chores Bot does not require any third-party service or special setup to sync all your family’s devices. With Allowance & Chores Bot you can create a daily, weekly, or monthly allowance for each child. Each chore can be a one time chore, or repeated on a daily, weekly, or monthly schedule. Each chore can be configured so completion is required for the child’s periodic allowance, or the chore can be configured as an extra reward in addition to their allowance. With Allowance & Chores Bot, you can approve or unapprove all allowance and chore payments for up to 30 days. Kids see how much they have saved and when and how much they’ve spent. The Allowance Graph lets your kids watch their allowance savings grow. Kids can see what chores need to be done and check them off when completed. Kids can receive chore reminders without having to open the app. Allowance & Chores Bot gives you everything you need to manage your children’s allowances and chores and teach them about saving money, spending money, and earning money. Features: * Automatic sync between multiple devices - no setup required, just login with the same email and password. * Set up daily, weekly, or monthly allowances. * Choose whether allowances accrue automatically or only after parental approval. * Keep track of how much money children have saved. * Deduct money from a child's account when they spend money. * Easily withhold any number of future allowance payments as punishment. * Supports many international currencies. * Supports several pretend currencies like Points, Smiley Faces, Federation Credits & more. * Assign chores with a daily, weekly, or monthly schedule. * Give rewards for good behavior or good grades. * Allowance Graph lets you see a 30 day history of savings, spending, and chore activity. * Receive notifications when each chore is done, and when approvals are waiting. * Receive reminders when you forget to approve an allowance or chore payment. * Photos can be added to each chore to help kids understand what needs to be done. * Pre-readers can have things like chore names, chore descriptions, allowance amounts and savings amounts read to them by the app. * Approve or unapprove allowance and chore payments for up to 30 days. * Optional parental passcode stops kids from making changes without permission. * Optional child passcode allows children to block siblings from having access their account information. * Works on iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.

    I just downloaded the app, and I don’t understand how the kids are paid and how the kids are able to spend their money. I tried to email the company, but got some sort of server error?
  • Great Concept, Needs some work

    So, the app keeps saying lost connection to server and dropping me back to the login screen. I was able to get it to work, but that seemed to happen fairly regularly. Thoughts on functionality to follow here. What is there is very basic. I’m sure the graphics took more time than the app workflow. 1. I’d like to be able to create a pool of chores that can be assigned to or picked up by the child. This seems very basic if you’ve ever worked with any kind of CRM system. It’s a logical way to organize something like this. 2. Chore template that can be utilized over and over rather than starting from scratch every time. The schedule feature wouldn’t work for this in my mind if that’s where you’re gonna go. 3. It’s 2018, fingerprint and facial rec...seems like basics if you’re gonna charge for an app. 4. Ability for child to add chores, with an approval of course 5. Take another look at how you add chores and assign to the child. The UI isn’t easy to follow. At the end of the day, you’ve got a good looking app that doesn’t seem very well thought out beyond the just what’s on the surface. It doesn’t have to be crazy complex, but currently it doesn’t offer enough to make it really worth using long term I don’t think. It will become to cumbersome and we’ll stop using it. Footnote...trues to contact developers and their form on their website errors out. Sweet...
  • Works for us!

    Been using this app for several years now. It works when you work it. Gotta stay on top of it though. I'd like to suggest that the developers give an option that's a little more grown up for the older kids. It's pretty juvenile for my high schoolers but it still works!

    This app has a clean appearance, but there are some major omissions: No historical review by transactions. I want my kids to see real progress. A cute graphic that does a little dance and makes a noise is way less important than that (over time). No interest option - you can't show kids the advantage of investing over spending by having automatic interest deposits. You can enter a description for a deposit but there does not seem to be a place to read it. I don't understand why this is the #8 app in the finance category. I bought it based on a mention in media and store popularity but now I'm disappointed.

    We’ve been using this app for several months. We appreciated the simplicity of the app, just what we needed, not a bunch of stuff we didn’t. It worked fairly well, with the odd glitch here or there until about a month ago. Approvals no longer take effect, which is the main function we use for the app. You tap and tap and tap and nothing happens. If you can’t approve the allowance, what’s the point of the app? Now we’re shopping for a new system to use with our kids. Two stars for concept and for the few months of use we enjoyed. To the developer: I work for a software company. I did all the basic troubleshooting steps and it still doesn’t work. 👎🏼

    Everything is going well until the approval process. The chores aspect is working with the kids and I get notified when they’ve finished one. Just wish I could get the approval process to work.
