I initially added the chores when I first set up. None of them took. Now I’m trying to add them all again and it’s a b***** royal pain. NOT HAPPY. Got through adding the chores without a problem, when I finally realized you need to be in landscape mode on iPad (really?!?!?!) in order to do this. Working through the app and still NOT HAPPY! Extremely disappointed.

Not worth time-never mind $$

This is the absolute worst app I have ever used. I never write reviews but felt compelled to do so. After creating chores for my 4 kids I found that as I went back into the app it would lose its memory. Pre-canned chores like empty the trash would become “new chore” on my sons ipad. When I would select “fold laundry” I would come back in after closing the app and it changed to selection to “make bed”. There is no way to accurately track what is happening unless you remember every detail and constantly update. I’ve already spent too many hours re-fixing thinking perhaps it was a user error only to find out this app doesn’t work.

Good app but syncing is very poor

Nice UI and easy to set up My 10 yr old daughter loves it But syncing between just two iOS devices just is not working at all Shouldn’t be that difficult I’m a tech savvy user too

Pretty good

Initially, I really like his app. It takes a bit to get set up. Granted, I have five kids which makes it more complicated than if I just had one kid to get set up. I find that some chores end up with a yellow check mark, which I think means it needs a parent to check it off as opposed to some chores that get a green check mark. I don’t see anywhere in the chore setup to change this and I can’t find an email to the developer to ask a question.

Useless

I have family sharing set up between my account and my kids. I'm logged into my phone using my iCloud account. My son is logged in through his iCloud account. This app doesn't sync between the devices like that. Unless you have same iCloud account in all devices, it won't sync. I feel ripped off.

Once you sync it all gets messed up and goes away 😭

I set this up meticulously for all 6 of my children. Spent hours (days). Then I synced it to their iPads and poof half the stuff was gone, some stuff deleted and everything mixed into different categories. So I tried to fix it. Then I opened it again and the same thing happened! Then every single time it syncs something goes missing or changes. I bought this on two devices. What a waste of $6. Let me know if you find an app that does all this stuff but actually works 😭😭😭😡

Pretty good app!

Could be a bit more user friendly, specially on the child-management part (for example if they had their own login, could request for parent validation of chores claimed to be done, etc.) Also, need an android version of the app please! So far, so good.....

Almost perfect

I never write reviews but felt compelled for people like myself who are searching for a chore monster replacement. There are so many options/everything I could think of (& laid out clearly) for how you want to set up an allowance, chore chart, etc. Eg you can have a point/star based system, cash, screen time or any combination of these. For rewards, you can set up a simple “buying” rewards list or you can set up transferring points/etc to various banks (in a way that reminds me of writing a check/will teach concept of banking). My kids are 9/10 so I set up both ways. Set up takes forever but it’s easy to edit once you have put in the initial info. You can copy/paste entire kid profile which is nice. MY WISH LIST FOR DEVELOPER: 1. Glitch fix? —Make star to screen time conversion able to do seconds/ .50. (I carefully set up all my star/reward system. As you know, that took forever. But I need 1 star = 30 sec/.50 or I have to change the whole point system to use the screen time bank 🙁. 2. Glitch fix - Be able to erase non used bank icons from shelf. 3. Surely there is an easier way to sync on mult devices & only give parent’s device editing writes in set up. 4. Ability to get notification when chores are checked off & notification to approve redeemed reward on parents phone. 5. Ability to use on computer (particularly when setting up). 6. Ability to download a kids profile (so another parent can use as starting point for their purchased app) 7. Glitch fix - Under “Reward”, kids are given the option to withdrawal OR deposit (even though in set up, parent picked only withdrawal). Kids could just hit this button to get as many stars, etc they want 🙁

I want to love this!

I have set up this app to be used with my two children. They each have their own device, an iPad and an iPhone and every time I sync it between devices it jacks up the currency’s and the stars and even deletes chores and rewards. I have added the chores and the responsibilities back in there several times and they keep getting deleted. The order and the sections keeps hitting deleted and chores are put into certain areas and mixed up. Also the Curren$y keeps getting altered. I have all the parental controls on no one else has access to this account. I am using my Dropbox to sync all devices due to the fact that everyone has their own iCloud account. We are all using my dropbox account. Please get back to me - I want this to work.
