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. With Allowance & Chores Bot you can create a daily, weekly, or monthly allowance for each child. 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. The Allowance Graph lets your kids watch their allowance savings grow. 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.

    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!

    This app has streamlined chores in our house! We have three kids. I can add chores easily, tell it what days they need to do them, and assign chores by child. I can punish (deduct money), or they can spend money and I can record it to show them later where their money went, etc. it’s awesome and really easy to use!
  • 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
  • Love it

    This app seems good so far. I wish the child had a different screen and could only see their items without seeing the parental side.
  • Costly

    If you have more than one child you have to pay for each phone. Not worth it.
  • This is a horrible app

    This took some work up front, but it was totally worth it! I built a spreadsheet with days of the week, chores, kids and myself. We looked at what needed to be done and how frequently and then divided the chores up according to age and ability. We also wanted to mix chores up so the same child wasn’t doing the same chore several days in a row. This allowed us the flexibility to select different days and with the quick fill to go in and reuse description for a different child on a different day. It took a few hours, but to me it was totally worth it. Our youngest two are just learning to read, but with the picture feature and the robot voice reading the description, they can figure out what chore they have to do without needing my help. I wish the reward amount stayed persistent with the chore in the quick fill, but that’s only a minor annoyance. So far, we’ve been doing it for a couple weeks and it’s almost an autopilot thing now. The kids are still excited about it. They see the chore money adding up. On payday they get their money or we transfer it to PiggyBot. That would be a nice add for this app—to be able to designate money to go to different purposes—meaning in PiggyBot I can designate a split in the payout, a certain percentage to savings, some to charity, and then play or purchase money. At any rate, I highly recommend the app. It clean, my kids love it (oldest 17 not so much until he sees the others getting paid for tracking) down to my four year old (who has finished his chores every day for 2 weeks).
