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. Allowance & Chores Bot does this automatically. With Allowance & Chores Bot you can create a daily, weekly, or monthly allowance for each child. Each child can have their own rate of periodic allowance, or you can give them allowance payments based on the completion of chores, or a mixture of both. 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. They can watch their allowance savings grow with the Allowance Graph and see how much savings they'll have in the future. 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.

    This app came highly recommended to me, and I see why. This app actually makes it fun for my kids to do chores, because they get notifications on their iPads to remind them of chores. They are then responsible for checking the box certifying the chore is done. You as the adult can then check their work and approve or disapprove their work. They know how much money they can expect each week because it's right there in the app. The kids got to pick their avatar, and come up with fun names for them. Enjoy!

    Allowance and chores have never been more awesome!!! I would love to see a allowance record built in. $50.00 -$10.00 movies $40.00 And so on!
  • Love it! The only drawback is...

    We truly love this app! Our kids do too! It's nice that they don't have to ask me what to do since they can see the tasks and description/instructions in the app. It's also nice to be out and about with their accounts on hand so if we're at a store and I don't have cash, I can purchase the item and subtract it from their account. They don't get paid their allowance until I check their work (an optional feature), which I love. The only drawback is that we'd love to have spending/savings/charity options. I did email this app developer, and they responded quickly, stating that that's in the future plans!
  • Kids love it!

    Great app for the kids. I love being able to see what they've done for the day and be able to select if/how much they get for their allowance. I wish there was an easier way to delete chores from the day. Overall very happy with the app and have showed friends how it works and they are looking into it also.
  • Excellent app! Needs some tweaks.

    I am a new user, but so far it seems fantastic. I have sent feedback regarding a few issues- I'm hoping that I am just missing these features somehow: 1) when you set a reward/punishment, it doesn't seem like the child is notified. This makes me wonder why the parent enters text to describe the reward. How is this ever able to be viewed in the future..either by parent or child? 2) I am still trying to figure out how to approve chores. I am being notified when they are completed, but when I go in to approve them, there is nothing for me to approve??? 3) I would like to see a log that shows the child each time an allowance is paid, each time a "punishment " deduction is made, each time a reward is made etc. Just like a bank statement, it would provide an explanation for the child to reference. I like the visual provided by the graph, but I do think an accounting of transactions is essential.

    The kids can no longer tell me they don't know what I want them to do (even though it hasn't really changed much in years). It is in print right on their phone. 😊. Love it
  • Great idea - getting better

    We use it because it's the best one out there, but thus concept still needs to be flushed out. Design ideas: 1) provide ability to identify what time of day a chore should be done: morning, afternoon, evening. And allow them to be organized in chronological order. 2) push notifications for kid reminders.
  • Great app!

    We've tried a few different things to get our 2 girls (age 11 & 12) to get them to do their chores without nagging them. Only used for a few days so far but day 1 already made a difference.

    Almost immediately the (my) nagging stopped! Even my 7 year old cleaned his room. I love the feature for adding pictures to show them what the expectations for clean are. You'll have to stick to one platform- iOS or Android unless you want to buy a copy for each. The Family sharing plan on either will work great for the whole family to have a copy with only one purchase. In all one of the best apps I've seen for ease of setup and user friendliness. Enjoy!
