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...
I don’t usually do these, but here it goes, this is my review. My wife and I have 8 kids. With that many naturally chores are a necessity just to make it day by day. Our 4 oldest ones cycle off with the major chores of the house (living, dining, kitchen and dishes). We had been trying to keep up with it on paper of who does what. This app, this wonderful app, has a feature that rotates an assigned chore to each child! No more keeping up on paper!! Plus we were failing miserably with keeping up on who actually did what for allowances and rewards and it was a real pain and sorry to say lowered the kids motivation levels. I have high hopes for this app! The robot talking to the kids and telling them what their chores are will be awesome! I love all the other features too. Would be really cool if you guys developed an Alexa skill that pulled that info!! Even as it is it’s a masterpiece of an app!
Helpful & Super Easy
I love this app! Prior to this app I considered paying for a kids bank account type app but that seems so overkill. We’ve kept charts on the fridge and tried piggy banks with real money. All of it was confusing and we would forget daily. This app saves so much time and keeps us organized. I’ve even added behavioral goals for them like “having a good attitude” or “helping little brother”. Our boys have even used there allowances to buy us parents gifts! So it’s teaching them a lot about responsibility, money management and gives them a sense of control that they get to choose whether they do the chore or lose the chance for money. Much less conflict in our wild and crazy house!!! I’ve begun referring it to all my client’s parents as I am a behavioral and play therapist for children. Plus the price is negligible, awesome all around.
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.
Great Support & Quick to Respond
We use this app daily. Having multiple older kids, this app makes it easy to keep track of chore assignments, completion, allowance and kids borrowing or spending money before payday. It’s easy to break down the chores into steps, assigning each step a value regardless of what you choose to reward your children with for completion. I also like how I can easily add the toilet gets cleaned on Tuesdays and Friday, the kitchen floor get mopped on Saturdays, and the lawn is mowed every other week, so the person in charge of each chore can have more or less tasks to complete each chore daily and isn’t overlooking things that matter. I love that I can put the chores in order of importance so each child has the smartest way to work though their list of tasks. It’s easy to reassign chores and add tasks if a chore it too vague or misunderstood. The app is being updated and gets better with every update. Support is phenomenal. If I have a question or concern the response time is super fast, usually receiving a reply within minutes. And they reply to feedback, so I know I’ve been heard. Overall I’m not sure how we got along without this app. Assigning chores, approving they are done right and giving an allowance is smooth and consistent.
I like it but it needs some changes to be great
I love that my kids have their chores at their fingertips and I get notifications when they do a chore. The notifications for them to do their chores needs major improvements my kids say it alerts them at 3am! So by the time they are supposed to be doing their chores (12 hours later most days) that notification is pointless. I would love to see notifications like they get for their games, multiple a day. I love that I can keep track of their allowance and can add or subtract money easily. The setup is super slow it took me a couple of days to get all their chores entered and you have to do each child separate. I love that you can setup reoccurring chores like everyday or setup rotating chores. I like that I can have a passcode for each kids so they can’t get into each other’s accounts. And I can make only their account show on their devices. Over all I like it. Just waiting for improvements to the notifications
Made my kids excited for chores
I’ve been thinking for awhile that needed to look for an app to keep track of my kids allowance without swapping cash back and forth and writing IOU’s. AllowanceBot has been perfect so far. My kids get a visual for what they need to do, and they seem to get things done faster than me nagging at them. It has plenty of options for how often you want chores to repeat and how you want to pay your child. I’m glad that I have less nagging to do now, and the things are actually getting done. It was well worth the couple dollars that I spent on it. I should add, I had a question about approvals and they got back to me within 12 hours. (I wrote them at night.) FYI approvals will come through the next day, even if your child finishes before the end of the day. Great app!
“Fun”ctional! (Fun and Functional)
Our family has struggled through checklists, spreadsheets, chore cards, verbal agreements, etc. and nothing has worked or been easy to use. The robot is a fun interface. Chores can be scheduled for one or multiple children, or alternating between multiple. You can schedule as a recurring chore or one-time. The best for me is having them check it off and then a reminder to me to confirm that the chore is completed before I mark as done. When I approve it as completed, the kids see the total that they’ve earned, which is an incentive to them. I’ve assigned some chores are “just need to be done” (like taking a shower) and they don’t get paid for. I input how much I pay them each time and the app keeps a running total. I really think this app has it all.
Easy and Quick
I have used other chore apps and they were beyond slow. This app is not only easy but super fast. I haven’t even tried everything it has to offer but for our kids it is a breeze. Chores are done, they feel accomplishment and actually pay each other to have them do their chores when they can’t. I use it to teach not only personal time management and accountability but also how to maintain a house and themselves. They also get the benefit of seeing how even $.10 chores add up to a lot of money over time. I no longer have to nag and remind, the chores are done and they are saving their money for their own personal goals. This has been life changing. Thank you!!
We are a family with 4 kids and started using this app last week. After downloading and trying to set up about 6 different ones we settled on this. It was easy to set up a rotating schedule of chores for the kids. There are a lot of options, which I love, and once I figured out duplicating chores with the options I wanted, the setup went quickly. The kids are loving checking off their chores! They’re excited to see their first allowance payment show up. The only thing that I feel is really missing is a calendar view. I would love to be able to look at what everyone has to do today (and has already done) on one screen, instead of having to click into each child. That being said, the other features make this app a keeper!
My dad loves this app (so do I)
I don’t love doing chores but this app makes it a bit more fun to do chores because you get a sense of accomplishment when you check off each chore you do. Plus you get to see your weekly allowance without having to ask your parent. You get to have a profile picture and see how your siblings are doing. This app is very organized and I recommend it. It is a good thing to use if you want your kids to help out around the house. Your kids can also make some money. And they can make the house cleaner in case you just want it to be clean or you’re having guests or something. It gets your kids more involved in helping out and I like that about this app.
Built in accountability
This app allows me to be consistent with my kids. They know exactly what is expected and I can be a competent employer by rewarding them on time and showing them accurate feedback through graphs. I can’t wait until the developer makes it easy to switch chores up on a daily basis without having to toggle back and forth between the chore bank and their chore lists to manually change the schedule from once to daily. With multiple kids, this taxes my working memory and time but the benefits of the app still outweigh the costs. I’m always recommended this app to friends, parents, and teachers because ultimately, it is a great app.
We had a system for allowance at our home for my 6 & 8 year old. It needed an update though as it was slot of work for me to keep them motivated with verbal reminders. This app allows them to keep a running record and then at my convenience I approve the chores. Less work for me really reminding them as this keeps them accountable. Then if they forget to check it off. I don’t pay. We go to the bank every Monday and they get their allowance. Then half goes into their bank accounts and they keep half. Some weeks they do not get any due to disrespect but it’s nice for them to see what they should have earned. Working well for our home.
Love the app.
I love the ability to sync between devices that makes it easy for the kids to know what is expected. It would be great to be able to create global chores that anyone could complete to earn extra money, such as emptying the dishwasher. It is only completed once per day but the way the app currently works I'd have to list it per child meaning that multiple children could "complete" it in a day. The approval process does help to reduce that confusion. Also it would be nice to create a common chore list bank that lists the name, description, amount, and schedule in one place. Then be able to pick from that bank when adding the chores to each child in mass adjusting the amt and schedule as needed per child. This eases the duplicate entry.
Meets My Needs!
I needed help keeping track of my daughter's weekly allowance. I hardly ever have cash on me, so handing her cash each week was tedious and frustrating. This app has made things better for both of us—she now has a virtual bank account with me where we can both see on our devices how much credit she has to make purchases of her choice. I like how we are able to identify details about what she has spent her money on in notes, but I am not a fan of the graph—instead I'd like to see more of a log or bank account register-type page. It'd be easier to identify expenses and what was purchased, etc. I love the graphics! Great app!
