It's great but getting frustrating. I am having trouble updating the chore price ammount as it does not reflect the change in each profile. For example I changed the price to clean kitchen and only one profile reflected the change. It says it saved but when pressed "i did it" it still rewards the wrong ammount. Please help me fix this. I really want to like this app. Overall it is pretty easy to use so I'm hoping it is just a new user issue.

We really like the BusyKid system, so far. My 11 yo daughter has taken to the chore concept very easily and we like the ability to split payments between the spend/save/share categories automatically. I really like the concept of the Savings Match but would really like to be able to finely tune the parents interest rate. I would like to see an editable text box to set the interest rate in fractions of a percent. The levels set for the current slider are way too high. I can only dream of an investment that would pay me 25% interest compounded weekly or bi-weekly. Great, useful app. Looking forward to seeing more refinements in the near future.

Good app high transfer fee. I love the idea and implementation is pretty s straight forward. It can be installed on all family members, devices and synced. Major downside is the monthly subscription cost plus a 8% fee every time you transfer money to your kids. I pay roughly $4 a month for the subscription and on average pay my kids $180/month split between them. 8% of $180 = $14.40 + $4.42 monthly subscription and that totals to $18.82/month to use the app. Looking for alternatives.

Thank you for letting us know but the reason for the fee is that you connected a card. Your card is charging the fee and not BusyKid. This is why we recommend connecting a bank account (no fees). Please email me at mpru@busykid.com and let's start over. I'll certainly make it worth the effort to do so! Sincerely - Mike Prusinski, President
