SUPPORT FOR MULTIPLE CHILDREN You can setup iAllowance to track the finances for all your kids, each with a separate photo for easy identification and as many banks as you desire. UNLIMITED NUMBER OF BANKS Kids are very busy these days. From general spending money to clothing allowances, gas money to cell phones accounts, kids and parents have a lot to keep track of in today's world. With iAllowance, you can create an unlimited number of banks for each of your kids. Each bank has its own transaction list where you can add, edit and delete transactions as often as you need to. If you don't want to use real money, you can setup any bank to use stars or even time. Mix and match star, time and real money banks to make iAllowance work best for you. Furthermore, you can assign an optional interest rate to any of the banks to help teach your children the value of saving money over the long term. AUTOMATIC ALLOWANCES Let iAllowance do the remembering for you! It's easy to set up any number of allowances that will pay out automatically at repeating intervals. Each allowance can be set up to pay into one or more of the child's banks. There is no need to setup a single allowance for each bank. CHORES Track all your children's chores with iAllowance. Get your kids involved in the process and watch the chores get done! Use the reminders to push alerts to your kids - even if iAllowance is not running. REWARDS Kids are more motivated when they have goals to work towards. You can setup rewards that you can choose to 'cash in' when you child reaches the set goal. PARENTAL CONTROLS We feel that it's important to get your kids involved in managing their own finances, but it is also important that you have a choice as to whether or not they can edit the information. By turning on the built-in parental controls, you can restrict your kids to a view only mode while you maintain full editorial control for yourself. SYNCING / AUTOMATIC BACKUP Use your Dropbox.com account or iCloud to sync iAllowance with all of your iOS devices. iAllowance will automatically store local backups of your data so you can always get back to where you need to. We are certain that iAllowance will meet all your family finance needs. So, make the leap with Jump Gap Software's iAllowance.

    Chores and responsibilities are hard enough to make a habit for younger ones. iAllowance is a great tool to help both parents and make it fun for kids.
  • Horrible

    Not user friendly. Pretty confusing trying to do ANYTHING on this app.
  • Almost great - needs two major improvements

    This is a very good way to manage allowance. However, it needs two improvements to get to 5 stars for also managing chores. 1) Chores should be managed in their own separate list instead of for each child. Chores could then be assigned for each child or left as a grab bag for whoever completes the chore. 2) Chore payment or rewards and notes should be included on the printable chore chart. I don’t want my child using my phone to check off their chores. Hint hint, that doesn’t work!
  • 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.

    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.
  • 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.....
  • Best app for chores and rewards!!

    I have been using this app for years and love it. I have tried several other apps but this is by far the most versatile there is. It takes a little while to figure out but can customize own chores for each kid and can make them appear only on days you select. You can also pay an allowance either in reward money dollar amount or set up to reward in stars then kids select from things they can use stars(rewards). I use the money system feature and set up banks for each of my kids. It works just like a regular bank. It will automatically add whatever dollar amount you set up per chore or per day if they do their chores. When you check their chore as complete, it will automatically add money to their account. I can also add deposits such as money they get for their birthday etc. An optional feature is that you can set up and use is you can have each kid have a savings account and set it up so it will take a percent weekly or daily such as 25% of their earnings from allowance will go into savings account. This is the best app for kids. The developers have put a great deal of effort into this program. I don’t understand the negative views. My guess is they didn’t take the time to work through the program to figure out how to customize. It does take a little while to customize it to your own needs and set up. Another great thing is that there is no annual fees. The only thing I would change now is to somehow make it interface with Alexa. I set up iAllowance with its own password protection as I didn’t want my kids giving themselves raises or extra stars. IAllowance does let them view it without having to put in password but only a few of my kids have their own device to be able to do this. I think if they could add Alexa somehow my kids could ask Alexa what their chores were for today. Just a thought. Thank you, for such a great app!! Kevin
  • I hate this app

    The app will make kids spoiled and bratty and you will try to torture them with a chore app? I mean really kids will hate parents once you install the app. Just saying
  • Great Expectations and Suggestion

    I have three kids and with this app, rules and carrots as well as penalties are clearly set. No more having to repeat reminders, they are all their choice now.... hopefully anyway because it’s only been three days. While my hopes are high, ways to configure can and should be improved - am sure so many dads and moms have tons of potential feedbacks. And one of many other things in my mind (for multiple kid management) is to have “common chore” setting. Right now, the app allows choice from a list of chores to be allocated to individual kids-three kids in my case. After allocation, when I need to change the compensation (e.g. to increase stars for a chore), I need to visit the same chore three times when if there was a “common chore”control would simplify tremendously. But I am sure this is a greap leap forward and will stick to this app for a while. Great job!
  • Losing sync.

    Keeps losing information when synced between two phones. Tried multiple times to resolve. Even worked with developer. He asked me to give it one more try and it worked for a bit and then stopped
