    Not enough faq. Good idea but expensive for what you get because: Configuration is too hard and long. You can’t group chores for core chores, from what I can see. There is no webpage so my kids cannot have a “common operating picture” up on our main monitor, and it doesn’t work on their android devices which is crazy...I’m not giving my little ones anything too valuable because they will break it so android it is for them. I never review but I’ve spent 20 minutes in lacking faq webpages trying to figure out why my kids’ chores are showing up even though I added them.
  • Great app, use for both sons

    Great app. Set up automatic allowances and Gift money received from family. Now kids can ask to make purchases based on allowance bank balances or save for next big item. Once had problem with app, wrote to developer who replied quickly and resolved issue with new build So many other features not even writing about. Very happy with app.
  • I use it everyday!

    This is the bank for my kids spending money and a great checklist for chores. We’ve definitely had syncing issues, but the app itself is so good that we use it regardless. I have a small allowance set up weekly, and chores set to run on a star system. When they have 25 Stars, they can trade that in for a dollar (I do this through two rewards transactions). Works great!

  • Sync is the key feature for parents, but no loans

    I can't find any way to track a loan that my son must repay me. There's no "official" way, plus, it prevents a negative opening balance on accounts I create, so I can't even hack my own way. Shortsighted IMO.

    I wanted a way to track allowance, not launder money for the mob. You can’t even track a simple withdrawal without giving it a label. If I needed to label it, I would have labeled it. It’s like it was designed by Microsoft.
  • I almost love it!

    I love how easy it is to keep track of how much my kids have earned. It's great for on the go when we're at the store and they see something they really want, I can quickly check if they have enough money. Love that I can predetermine their savings and charity money and it works automatically. Some reviewers said navigation was hard, but I found it fairly intuitive. Yes, it takes a little bit of time to figure the app out, but it's not terrible. I do have two complaints though... I have always based my kids allowance on the amount of chores they've completed (getting the stars), but there is no option for this. They get their allowance whether they've done their stuff or not. I have to manually do a transaction to take money away that they didn't earn. I really wish there was an option to base allowance on stars. (Or keep it the same way since some people do pay the same every week no matter what.) Not sure why I put in there that each star was worth 10¢ because it doesn't really matter. Also, I've been able to sync to my iPad and my son's iPod, but not my other son's iPod. I've tried both the opulence syncing (all of their iPods are I my account) and through Dropbox, but for some reason it always syncs with the one iPod but not the other. It makes it hard when I have 4 kids trying to record their jobs everyday...they always want to record all at the same time, of course. If those two things worked, this app would be perfect in my opinion!
  • Awesome app.

    It's a lot of work to set up, but once that is done this is great. I have it synced with my kids phone and that works well usually. I am currently being prompted to change for the legacy sync so we will see how that goes. I have emailed for assistance in the past and they were extremely helpful.
