Allowance & Chores Bot: Allowances, Chore, Rewards, Punish, Sync
Allowance & Chores Bot allows you to easily 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 iOS 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. Allowance & Chores Bot does this automatically.
With Allowance & Chores Bot you can create a daily, weekly, or monthly allowance for each child. Each child can have their own rate of periodic allowance, or you can give them allowance payments based on the completion of chores, or a mixture of both.
With Allowance & Chores Bot you can assign chores to each of your children. 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. As you approve each allowance or chore payment, the amount will get added to your child’s allowance total. You can also reverse an allowance payment. For example, you might decide that a chore was not done to your satisfaction, or you might want to punish your child by withholding last week’s allowance payment. It’s all under your control.
Allowance & Chores Bot can be configured to remind your children that they have chores to do. These reminders can be configured in several ways. For example, if your children have their own iOS device, you can configure each device to show chore reminders for only the child that owns the device. The chore reminders can also show up on the lock screen, so your children do not have to open the Allowance & Chores Bot app to see that they have chores to do.
Allowance & Chores Bot gives you everything you’ll need to manage your children’s allowances and chores and teach them about saving money, spending money, and earning money.
Whether you want to set up a weekly allowance or pay out a special reward, Allowance & Chores Bot handles everything for you with an incredibly easy-to-use interface.

Good app overall
This is a good easy to use app to get our child motivated to do chores. I also like that you can add rewards and punishments. It works great using different devices and updates almost instantly when you make a change on one device. This was a must have for us to allow our daughter to use her iPhone/iPod to manage her chores. We have seen a huge improvement in her chores already even weeks later. It is very easy to add or remove specific chores. It is also great that we can use money in the account at the store instead of having cash if we want. Super easy.
A few things that need improvement is that it's difficult to approve chores. You have to open each one in the list to see what the child has completed. It would be nice to see the detail listed already instead of having to open each one to verify. Also if you could sort those chores marked as complete or not complete instead of just having a simple list. Another thing I would like to see is the ability to withhold allowance for one day instead of only getting the choice for one week. So we only use the monetary amount for rewards and punishments. Also when a reward is added I wish the child could see it on their main screen. The only way they see it is to go into another area detailing money's. This would be more incentive.
Overall we are happy with the app but there are definitely improvements that can be made to make it more user friendly and rewarding.
This app works wonderfully for tracking chores and allowance. Even more than that, it allows users to also track savings accounts and spending to show them exactly how much money they have (and keeps track of what they spent their money on). Because the app syncs across devices, it allows me to input chores on my phone and my son to cross them off on his iPod Touch. My son likes how easy it is to check off his chores and how the app graphs the amount of money in his savings account so that he can easily see how much money he'll have by a certain date.
One of the nicest features is how customizable the schedules are for setting chores--chores can be repeated daily, weekly, or monthly and can be set for any days of the week or month. That makes it so I can easily set one chore to be completed every fourth Saturday while setting another chore to be completed every Monday and Thursday and yet setting other chores on daily schedules.
The interface is nice, and the functions are user-friendly. My only suggestion for the developers is to incorporate the ability to set non-monetary rewards for specific chores so that large projects could earn a special trip to the zoo or a special dinner. Even without that feature, though, I still rate it as a five-star app because of how much it motivates my son to keep up with his chores.
Tangible Motivation for Kids!
I love this app..... I have typically used the standard handwritten chore chart. We all put forth a strong effort in the beginning, but soon it becomes another piece of artwork on the side of the refrigerator. My family is all about technology so this is perfect.....the app will send them notifications to encourage them to complete their chores. I of course will still be providing reminders but the less I drone on the more success I see. They will also be able to see their "bank" and their "graph" with their projected income. How awesome is that? Again....I know it's virtual but the concept is very tangible. The best part....should I need to correct behavior I can deduct from their account. Yes! That will have an impact.....no one likes to see their hard earned money taken away. Now for positive reinforcement.....they can be paid a bonus money too for whatever I deem extra effort or just for not "rocking the boat" during the school week. Yippee! You can also assign each chore a monetary value as well. Set them up daily, weekly, monthly or one time only. My boys will have the app installed on their iPads and it will kindly remind them to do their chores. Whoever designed this.....you deserve a job at Apple working on the latest and greatest! You are a genius! Thank you.....🙌
