Allowance & Chores Bot makes it easy to 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 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. 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. Kids see how much they have saved and when and how much they’ve spent. They can watch their allowance savings grow with the Allowance Graph and see how much savings they'll have in the future. Kids can see what chores need to be done and check them off when completed. Kids can receive chore reminders without having to open the app. Allowance & Chores Bot gives you everything you need to manage your children’s allowances and chores and teach them about saving money, spending money, and earning money. Features: * Automatic sync between multiple devices - no setup required, just login with the same email and password. * Set up daily, weekly, or monthly allowances. * Choose whether allowances accrue automatically or only after parental approval. * Keep track of how much money children have saved. * Deduct money from a child's account when they spend money. * Easily withhold any number of future allowance payments as punishment. * Supports many international currencies. * Supports several pretend currencies like Points, Smiley Faces, Federation Credits & more. * Assign chores with a daily, weekly, or monthly schedule. * Give rewards for good behavior or good grades. * Allowance Graph lets you see a 30 day history of savings, spending, and chore activity. * Receive notifications when each chore is done, and when approvals are waiting. * Receive reminders when you forget to approve an allowance or chore payment. * Photos can be added to each chore to help kids understand what needs to be done. * Pre-readers can have things like chore names, chore descriptions, allowance amounts and savings amounts read to them by the app. * Approve or unapprove allowance and chore payments for up to 30 days. * Optional parental passcode stops kids from making changes without permission. * Optional child passcode allows children to block siblings from having access their account information. * Works on iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.



  • Needs bug fixes but has potential

    3 star as is with the hope of some fixes. My daughter and I like the app in general. It is very cute and simple which is what I was looking for to track her allowance. But it needs some work. When she completes a chore it doesn't immediately show up on my approval list. And when it does it doesn't always show up for the right date. For example she completed her chores for 11/20 but it's shown as completed on 11/21 instead. Additionally it would be great to have a chore category that's none room related such as "Tasks" for homework or music practice etc. So far the categories offered are bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, living room etc.
  • Love it

    I love that you can add extra money for good jobs and subtract money for things they do bad. I take .50 -$1 every time my 9year old waste food.
  • It's really cool and works good!

    By Nifty Fella
    My dad bought this for me and it's really cool how everything works. Some things you can't get into without a code, so for example, I can't approve chores I've done, only my dad can. Before a chore's allowance is added to the thing under your profile, it has to be approved by a parent that it was done. The only thing I don't like, which is sort of stupid that I care about this, is if you click the speaker button it has Siri's voice, but I don't use it anyway because I can read. We got a dry erase board to try to keep track of my chores with, now nobody uses it with this app.
  • Love this app!

    By AndiBeth
    We are trying to teach our son how to be more responsible and thought starting an allowance may help. This app has been a hit.
  • Helpful

    By KimFriesen
    I will really do my chores because this app encourages me to do my chore without my mom telling me to!
  • Great idea but need more detail

    By Engineermomof3boys
    I love the idea that I can have a digital piggy bank for each of my kids so I am not handing them cash or trying to remember if I paid them their allowance yet. I really wish you could see a list of the "tally" with deposits and removals. The chart is fine but doesn't include notes on what the changes are even though I added them when I made the changes.

    I love this app! I am able to enter chores and reoccurring dates so that my kids can rotate who does what. It is easy to navigate as a parent and easy for the kids to understand. We seem like we have a ton of chores because I enter their morning checklist and afternoon checklist, as well as their chores, but it keeps everything running smoothly. My 9 year old does better with the app because he reads faster and is more motivated than my six year old. (Another bonus! Your kids get in extra reading practice!) I do like that it has some picture options to add to the text to help give your child clues. I especially like that this app keeps track of money. My kids are good, they get a reward; they fight with each other, they lose. When we are out and about I know exactly how much the "have" to spend and can show them when they are wanting to make purchases (a.k.a. begging me for an expensive toy). The graph also displays the parent's text as to why money was given or taken away which is nice so kids can see where and why money is coming and where it goes. I really love this app! I have tried chore boards and written checklists. This is so easy and clean, and is always with you! Your child can become responsible for themselves with reminders of what needs to be done. Plus you don't have to have cash on hand at all times to reward or pay chore money. Kids can watch their good deeds and positive attitudes turn into savings for the treasures they want, and keep motivation to continue doing their best.
  • Good and simple

    By Kimbstr
    This is a good app for keeping track of my kids allowances since I don't always have cash and I may use a card to purchase items that come out of their allowance. I can open the app and deduct the correct amount. The only feature that I wish it included is a separate "savings" account for each child. I make my kids put a portion of their allowance into savings each week for larger items or emergencies and I have to keep track of this separate from the app.
  • Please add savings and giving!

    By gretchiemoran
    My kids give 10% and save 20% of all of their earnings. Would really like it if the app would account for this!
  • I like it.

    By Run Fighter
    I like that you can easily sync the app on your devices. I want an updated version it hasn't been updated since 2016.
