• DROPBOX SYNCING
• AUTOMATIC BACKUPS WITH RESTORE
• PARENTAL CONTROLS
• EMAIL & PRINT REPORTS
• TRACK MONEY, STARS AND TIME
Set up unlimited, recurring allowances valued in money, stars or time and have them automatically applied to your child’s banks. Teach your child the value of saving and sharing by setting portions of their allowance to be automatically deposited into banks of your choice (like “Savings” and “Charity”). Customize recurring automatic withdrawals for your children’s expenses such as gas, cell phone, car insurance, or cable, while teaching your child how to manage their money.
Set up unlimited banks to track money, stars or time with the ability to earn interest in money banks. With user-set conversion rates, transfer between bank value types. (As an example, trade your stars in for money or time.)
Set up unlimited chores that automatically deposit to or withdraw from your child’s banks when completed. You can customize chores to be active on any given day or multiple days of the week, with the ability for one or multiple completions per day. You can also set a requirement that all weekly chores be completed before any payment is made (“all or none”) or allow for each chore completion to trigger a “per event” payment. With parental controls enabled children will have the ability to enter their own completed chores, while you will have the authority to approve them for payment.
Motivate your children with rewards that can instantly be purchased with the earned money, stars or time accumulated in their banks.
Set up goals for those rewards that are beyond the immediate financial reach of your children. Help your children save for these goals by having a portion of their earned allowances and chores automatically directed to their goals. The process of earning and saving before purchasing teaches financial responsibility and makes the goal that much sweeter when redeemed.
Allowing your children to take ownership of their money management will help give them a solid financial foundation for their future. There may be times you want to restrict the level of control your child has over their finances. In those cases, you can enable Parental Controls to limit their authority while still encouraging their involvement and understanding.
AUTOMATIC BACKUP & RESTORE
EARN THIS SAVE THAT automatically backs up your data every time you open the app. You can restore the data in your app to a backup stored on your device at any time.
With a Dropbox account, you can enable automatic syncing of your data with other iOS devices. Stay in sync with your family and always know your child’s bank balances and chore statuses.
PRINT AND EMAIL REPORTS
With EARN THIS SAVE THAT you can easily email or print bank balances, bank history and chore reports directly from your phone via AirPrint.

And the updates keep coming...
I downloaded this app yesterday and it took me no time to set up my 3 children. I was frustrated with the lack of "ease of use" in my other allowance app and thought I would give this one a try. I'm glad I did. It does everything I need and then some and so simple to use. Great job! One change I would love is to allow me to edit the description WHEN I make a transaction as well as AFTER. Thanks!!
UPDATE: Thanks for adding my suggestion above!! It makes it easier to customize my transactions.
Been using the app for almost a week for my two kids. In theory it is great. However we seem to be having sync issues (at least I think they are sync issues). We are having the following issues
1-often when we click on "today" it displays the prior day.
2-chores that have been marked complete frequently are not complete upon re-entering the app
3-awarded stars disappear
Please fix these bugs! I would like to keep using this app because I like many of the features. However, if I have to start writing down money,stars,and time awarded to be sure the app is correct it defeats the purpose of the app.
Love this app. It was exactly what I was looking for to help my son learn about banking and compounded interest. This app is well designed to be flexible for younger and older children. I appreciate the flexibility to set up several banks, like spending, saving, give away and to be able to customize interest as desired. I also appreciate the responsiveness in fixing a minor problem with the app. Easy to setup and maintain. Thank you!
