Use a free Dropbox account to sync your data between all of your Chore Pad installations. Syncing happens automatically whenever you open or close Chore Pad, so keeping up to date with changes is effortless.
ENGAGING USER CARDS
Each child has their own card showing their star and checkmark totals under their portrait. Tap a child's card to show their Chore Chart, where chores are completed to earn stars. Give out bonus stars to acknowledge a job well done or penalty stars to show more effort may be needed. Flip cards over to show stats for today, this week, last week or two weeks ago.
SECURE PARENT MODE
Parent Mode keeps Chore Pad kid-friendly by tucking the important setup features safely away. Use Parent Mode to configure users, chores, rewards, syncing, passcode protection and more!
Your child earns stars as chores are completed, and uses those stars to redeem rewards that you've created! Watch happily as your child learns to save up their stars for long-term goals!
Completing chores unlocks trophies over time, which are displayed on each child's card and in their Chore Chart. A trophy shelf for each child displays their earned trophies!
Each child can select their own theme for their Chore Chart, with nine currently available and more to come!
Create template chores that can be copied to any number of children and customized individually for each. Specify a wide range of repeat intervals, star values and select from dozens of available chore icons.

Best I've found
I do love it and it's been very helpful in my ADD household. Simple. Who, what , when, did you do it? Earn a star, get a reward.
Graphics are good and fun. Personalization is neat. Kids love it.
I have tried a lot of apps and this is by far my favorite. I did purchase the full version because well I liked it a lot.
My only issue and it's probably because I am doing this with my older children and the chore lists are very long but I wish I could categorize the chores. Color cod even. Red is school, Blue is household, green is personal responsibility sort of thing. As it is now adding choruses to users with already long lists requires a lot of shuffling.
Also I understand the parental lock but wish I could add and delete at will so being able to opt out would be cool.
Those are just my wishes.
Chore Pad HD is a great app for creating a chore chart on your iPad! It allows the user to customize the chore chart by person, with chores being done daily or on a schedule. Users can assign each chore a point value, and create rewards the user can then choose from and redeem their points. The app contains multiple images to use along with the chores to provide a visual for children that need that. The parental controls can be locked thus protecting the chore list from deletion or editing. No in-app purchases or ads, and the external links are all in the parental controls section. Great app!
Great execution! More icons please?
This is a really useful app. The Dropbox syncing between my phone and iPad is terrific, and my kids 2, 4, and 6 all relish seeing their good behavior affirmed through this interface.
I would suggest the developer add more icons, or better yet allow the user to import from a device's camera roll.
Also, it would help if chores only appeared on days for which they are scheduled. Something that only happens on Sundays need not show up faded everyday.
Maybe they're not to sharp, but there's always some kid asking why I didn't check off some inactive task :)
