About this app

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

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 bank account (US only)
- track IOU
- add or remove funds from wallet
- set saving jars with financial goals
- kids learn to manage funds for each of their goals
- 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.

By subscribing to Homey Premium or Homey Unlimited you'll get access to other great features like:
Connecting your bank account and safely transferring allowance and chore money directly to your child's savings account. (US only)
Multiple saving jars for each child.
Adding or deducting money from the wallet.
Customizable permissions.

It's not bad, just not good. One major complaint is not having an option to record payments for jobs like there is for the allowance. A second one is the in app purchases. The pack descriptions are vague at best and since I want to know what I would be getting before paying not likely to entice. Has a few bugs that need fixing. In all, a great idea poorly executed. Won't be renewing a subscription as the value return is not equal to the monetary output.

Very easy to do the things required, but whenever I take a picture, it lags because of the amount of darkness. In other words, it doesn't recognize dark pictures as actual pictures. And it doesn't have to be dark in the room; the floor can be black and the desk as well, so it is very difficult to take some pictures because of that reason. Also, if I switch tabs too fast, the application crashes, and that is very annoying. I very rarely write 2 star reviews, so I hope you see and understand this.

Tried to make this work as it is a good concept but the app just won't function. After getting some chores and things setup to test with my kids we finally had to cancel and uninstall. The app freezes and crashes constantly. When trying to update the "done" status on a chore it will spin and spin until it times out. Tried for over 15 minutes to update one chore. If they ever get it to function smoothly it will be a great app. I like the UI and the flow of chores and jobs.
