Description

The perfect app to teach your kids about money through completing chores and working towards goals.

Don’t listen to us, listen to those that fell in love with it.

“I love that the Homey not only encourages kids to develop a strong work ethic, but it teaches kids how money is earned, encourages long-term goal setting, instills real life financial skills, and connects the whole family with a fun approach to paid chores.” Crystal, MoneySavingMom

“Homey is a great organizational tool for families!” Best Apps for Kids

“Homey helps remind my children what jobs they haven’t done yet, so I don’t need to. It even inspires them to work a little harder to earn allowance. Better yet, they are learning to save up that allowance for a bigger reward.” Gloria, JugglingMother

“A picture says a thousand words. And with Homey, those words are “this is the chore you’re supposed to be doing right now.” Snap a photo of your kid’s unmade bed and send it to them with a deadline, and then they can send a photo back once it’s taken care of.” Fatherly

Features:
- set daily, weekly or monthly recurring or one time chores for the whole family
- set chores that are responsibilities and you won't pay for, and jobs to teach kids how to earn money or rewards
- manage allowance and extra money rewards for each child
- transfer allowance to a bank account (US only), or mark it as payed out in cash
- track IOU
- add or remove funds from wallet
- set saving jars with financial goals
- kids learn to manage their funds
- Homey syncs across all devices in the household

SHOW KIDS HOW MONEY IS EARNED
With Homey you can pay kids commissions based on chores they do around the house like taking out the trash, cleaning their room, or mowing the grass. And you can also set responsibilities that are required to teach kids that everyone needs to contribute to the household.

SUPPORT LONG-TERM GOALS AND SAVING
Teach kids delayed gratification and financial responsibility by providing them with incentives that differ in value. With Homey kids learn they need to work longer or harder to earn more.

TEACH REAL LIFE FINANCIAL SKILLS
Homey enables you to transfer allowance and money kids earn directly to their savings or checking account or tracks the money as IOU and pay it out in cash. This way you can teach your child how banking works, they can accumulate interests on their savings and you can be sure that their money will stay safe.

Neat features but too many problems

MyApps7365

I am using the free version and it doesn’t appear ready for prime time. Share menu button crashes app every time. It allowed me to create a savings jar for one child, but each time I add money, it goes back to 0. No error message or other notification. It would not let me create a jar for a second child. Fill out the entries in the menu, but the “create” button fails...again with no notification or instructions. It also has an unexplained “expiration time” entry that always stays blank. Overall just unusable in current state.

It’s too bad because the feature set is pretty cool. I like the chores based allowance plus jobs for extra. I would also like a points option. Not willing to pay 50/yr for something this unfinished. Moving on with the search for a chores app...

Hi there, we're sorry you feel that way but thanks for the feedback all the same. It sounds like the child's wallet is empty and this is why no money can be put into the jar. They can either earn money through allowance and commissions and it gets added to their wallet, or you can add money to their wallet with a "boost". You'll find the boost button on the right side of the wallet amount (all the way down, where you see the available funds). Expiration time on the jar is just that..if the jar is not filled in time, it expires, and all the money goes back to the wallet (useful if the kids are saving for buying things on a planned trip - if they don't save the money before the trip, they won't be able to but things on the trip). We're not sure why you weren't able to create a jar for a second child. We just tested this and it worked for us, but we'll look into it. We'd also be happy to look into the crash, but because it doesn't happen on any of our devices, we'd really appreciate your device and iOS version info.
If you don't find a perfect app, we'd be thrilled if you check Homey again. We usually update the app weekly, and we work closely with our users to make sure the app is always improving. You can always reach us through the feedback button in the app or on feedback@homeyapp.net

Best,

We tried many chore apps over the years, and this is the first one that has everything we need. The scheduling options are great, I love the photo proof feature, I really like the chat and comment option on each chore, I like how I can decide which chores are "part of the family, and just do it" chores, and which I will pay for. I also like how they added a wallet for each child and made it simple for them to learn money management. I also noticed that I can manage permissions for each family member, and can't wait to dive into all the settings.

Great app in the making

I think this is on its way to being a really great app. I do encounter an error when trying to “clone” a chore for multiple children though. Also, one suggestion I’d have is the ability to set a chore to 0 points. For example, I’d like to have responsibilities worth points only (which I can do) and jobs worth coins only (which I currently can’t do). Overall, after reviewing several apps, I think this one has the most of what I was looking for.

Hi, thank you for reaching out! We're just in the process of updating the app with a lot of improvements and also the feature you're describing, so you'll be able to have jobs without any points and only responsibilities will count toward privileges as soon as the app updates. You can see how the app will look on our website. We also think we made chore cloning better :) If you have any other suggestions you'd like to share, we're always happy to hear from our users on feedback@homeyapp.net
Best, Homey team
