So far great, looking forward to more
So far the app does everything it needs to, which is great! It has been surprisingly hard for us to find an app that fits our needs, and FINALLY we found this one! It seems to function a tad slow, which really isn’t a huge problem, it doesn’t much affect functionality, but it can be very mildly frustrating at times. But it’s a very small downside. The only real issue I see is that my “kid” can’t see the calendar. I had read that this issue had been addressed from a review I read before downloading but I may have misunderstood. I have seen that as a developer you keep up to date and keep adding useful features and fixing issues like this one, so I’m pleased to know that such things are possible in the future and I look forward to using this app more!
This app is perfect for giving your children responsibilities and teaching them about taking care of their business which leads to rewards! They can earn money and it encourages them to create goals! It also helps them to learn time and money management. Oh and yes...points can be taken away too! So, if the job isn’t done correctly then you don’t get paid in real life and this also helps them learn this concept as well. This type of responsibility also helps children self manage and cultivate a sense of independence! And my two sons ages 9 & 11 absolutely love this app! We all have iPhones and it works great!! Side note: The app can be a little glitchy like my one of my sons couldn’t log in after successfully using the app on the first day it was installed. So, I uninstalled it and then reinstalled it and it has been working fine ever since! Also when you are trying to add a reward like “dining out” if you create the reward and then decide to edit it the app will keep closing, but if you just delete the reward and recreate it it will work. The boys have the iPhone 8’s and us parents have the 11 pro max if that helps any.
I have never written a review before, but I am so impressed with this app that I felt compelled to let others know! We’ve been using this for about two weeks and am thoroughly overwhelmed by the amount information this will track while also giving so much flexibility to customize it for my family. The community page for all app users is a beautiful concept! We are able to share ideas and get feedback from the developers well within 24 hours! The developers post frequently regarding the updates on which they are working and respond to users questions and ideas well within 24 hours! Other chore apps we have used will not sync between our devices; this app syncs seamlessly. Each of my boys has it on their phones & my husband and I have the app on our phones as well. The only time a device was missing info was due to an iOS update delay. Easily fixed and back up and running! I HIGHLY recommend this app!
BEST chores app hands down!
I've looked at and tried several different 'chore' apps but this one far surpasses the others. I love that it is totally customizable and I'm able to tailor it for each of my kids. I have an autistic child. She is what some would call high-functioning but her autistic characteristics are definitely there and makes life difficult for her. When I tell you this app has changed everything it really has! Most autistic kids are very goal oriented and this app fills that need...at the same time it helps reduce communication issues and expectation problems are almost non-existent. For me it goes beyond 'chores'...I give rewards for 'keeping a good attitude' to 'not interrupting others while they are talking'. You can plug in any desired behavior for your child and they can earn points for it. And since it is customizable, you can even key in those really sensitive/difficult problems that an autistic child might have that most others wouldn't. Not only that, but all of my children can't seem to remember to do the everyday routines without me asking. Since we've had this app, I haven't had to ask even one time! 😳😁 Happy mom here. And just as an added bonus: Customer service rocks! I was a corporate trainer for several years and I'm telling you they have what I taught... 1. Be there 2. Listen 3. Be kind 4. Resolve 5. Do more than expected 6. Have fun They nailed it! - Sonja

I absolutely love this app. We just started using it. But I love everything about it. The main reason for downloading it was for chore tracking. But I love the calendar option and that my kids basically have their own access/profile. It teaches them to be responsible on their own. The developers are so quick with responses to questions and request ideas for the app. Great for responsibility, time management, and reenforcing desired behavior. Update: I’m a bit of a softy when it comes to my kids and the goal portion of the app is helping me to keep them and myself accountable when things get taken away and they have to earn it back instead of me just giving in. This app is seriously making my parenting better. So thank you. We’ve used it for almost a month now. I know there are still some quirks the developers are working on. But I’m bumping my rating up to 5 stars, this app is truly amazing.
A lot of issues with layout on iPhone XS Max
Update: Great support from the development team. Hopefully the concerns below will be resolved soon, nonetheless 5 stars for your attention to these comments! I’ve been playing around with this app for a few hours and it looks like it’ll fit my family needs. However I’m having lots of issues with the app layout on an iPhone XS Max; all options at the top on several views are almost laying on top of the iOS icons for clock and battery... and they’re unresponsive. Also, the profile pictures get cut off at the top, and I have three kids added and the main page cuts the pictures as well. Also the Gmail calendar doesn’t seem to sync. I tried reporting these issues on the developer’s page for this app, but I get errors there too when trying to submit feedback.
Great app! Thank you!
I love this app! For one it is FREE no hidden fees! My kids love it! I have 3 kids ages 10, 8 and 6. I took me about 2 hours one night to set it all but. I put in all the chores I wanted each of them to do. I was able to leave chores as optional so anyone could claim like fold laundry. There are preset chores already in here. I could change the “s’mores” amount. I set up rewards. Extra one hour of screen time. Spending the night at cousins house. I have never seen my kids do chores fast enough. They love it. I waited to write a review for 6 weeks Because I thought the “newness” would wear off or there would be a glitch etc. I can’t say in this house I have found one. My kids ask me to add more chores all the time. I can’t say enough!!!! Thank you for making this amazing app!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Great idea, needs a little work though.
We’ve been using this for a couple of days and what I do like about it is the kids are motivated to get things done. What I don’t like is it can be difficult figuring out how to navigate the app. The app also has a really bad lag so when you approve the kids chores sometimes it takes up to 30 minutes or so to show up as approved. At first it seemed the approve button didn’t work so it was a little frustrating. Now we know it takes a little bit to see changes. I’ve also assigned chores but they don’t seem to show up as a chore on the assigned list for the parents every time. With that being said I think it’s all small things that can be fixed with time. Should be a pretty cool app once they get things nailed down and running smoothly.
Takes a little getting use to it and setting it up! It can lag a little but definitely worth it! They also are on top of customer support if you have a issue or have suggestions! I wonder if it be possible to ad a widget for the kids to do on their end because they loved that part of chore monster being able to build up their monster and play a game for an award how I think it’s setup for the parent to be in complete control! It just took my 2nd oldest a few days to like it over my dry erase board on the frig bc he misses chore monster but he’s been earning rewards and I added a few more today geared to his age (12) but definitely as a parent love it!! Completely in control as a parent and motivation X100 for my 8 yr old and 10 yr old!!
Like it so far but...
I like it and like that I can add new chores and assign them to the kids but I wish there was a way to just have a no time limit option too. So they can do extra work without me giving it a specific day. I also wish the kids could see the calendar. I got this thinking that they could and thought I could use this as a family calendar at the same time so she can input her own events like softball practice or games, school events. Unless I’m not doing it right I don’t think there is a way for her to use the calendar or even look at it. But it’s great for my younger daughter who is 3. She can’t read but she can look at the pictures and learn what each picture means and then go in and collect her s’mores.
More direction needed
I like this app a lot and our family has tried several. There is a community function for users to chat and it appears the developers used to answer questions, but no longer do so. Some of the functions are confusing and could use clarification or a tutorial. Parents should be able to share/spend/save as well and there doesn’t appear to be a way for the family to work toward goals together. Could be a stellar app with a little more attention to detail.
Who are these children?!?!
I can’t believe how transformational this has been for my children. Besides assigning points for chores which they are now doing completely without prompting, I have assigned points for playing outside for an hour uninterrupted, 30 minutes of daily reading, brushing their teeth, and a whole bunch of other little things that I want them to do besides just playing video games and complaining about everything I ask them to do. They have had the most positive attitude and are super excited about earning their rewards! I can’t believe how awesome this app is!
The app isn't as intuitive as I would have liked. There is a learning curve and calculating reasonable s'mores values is a thought process. I would like the ability to have one chore assigned to more than one child so the child that selects to do it, it will ghost out so the other child will not be able to select it once it's been completed. I would also like to assign tasks that need to be done more than one time a day (like take the dog out to potty) without having to assign it many times. I would love to have the app have a full blown iPad version as opposed to an enlarged iPhone version. The aspect ratio is off and not landscape mode friendly.
Pretty good app if some bugs can be fixed
Other than it being really slow sometimes and seem to freeze for a bit, it’s a pretty good app. Second day using it and my daughter seem to like it. I’ll update the review after using this longer. So far it’s mostly user friendly and if you’re stuck you can ask the community for help.
You nailed it!
I just needed an easy way to keep track of points for my kids. I LOVE everything about this app so far! I love that I can take points away if necessary and can just make a note rather than having a list of punishments and their deduction values. I also love the badges and that my kids can easily see how they stack up to each other! The layout is appealing and simple, and my kids are really loving it too! Thank you for making such an awesome app!
