What's New in Version 3.0.2
- Added quick switching to Mothershp
Needs work, but promising!
Pros: My child loves doing her chores for points. She loves getting tickets to watch videos and spin for monsters. She loves sending little messages to me. It was time consuming, but not too difficult to add the chores.
Cons: The app does not notify my child when I give her bonus points. The app does not allow me to send little messages to her. The app chores are customizable to a point - I am not able to add weekday only chores, for things such as homework, or emptying a backpack.
If these things are improved, I will update and give a better review.
I am using this with all 3 of my sons age 6-12. I would love to see a few updates:
A screen where I can see all options selected for each chore. I decided to edit from auto approve to manually approve and I had to edit 90 chores one at a time.
A week day and weekend option for frequency.
"Sort" chores by name, frequency, etc. on parent main screen. As I was editing, they jumped around after submit and then I had no idea which chores I had edited. Also on child screen, would love ability to number the chores so they do them in that order. If it was also an option for parents to chose how child's screen is sorted, that would be helpful.
no landscape mode.
I would give this app 4 stars at least if they would make it work in landscape mode for the ipad. It is impossible to use this app if you have your ipad attached to a keyboard. The app is nice but the lack of landscape mode on the ipad has me ready to drop it for something that is probably not as nice just to get something that works in landscape mode. I can see only supporting portrait for the phone, but on the ipad portrait is just hard to use.
