About this app

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

- 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

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.

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.

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.

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.

I feel like this app is almost there, and it will be great when it is, but it's just too buggy to use. I downloaded it and tested it out for my 5 person household (2 adults, 3 kids). What differentiates this app most from other chore apps and what I was looking forward to most is that you can take a photo of the completed chore, but unfortunately that's one of the buggy parts. Once a child completes a responsibility and sends you a photo, if you don't approve the responsibility on their first go, the child has to re-take a photo, but that photo never shows up and the responsibility shows as complete. There are many other little bugs that were annoying but could be forgiven, but the photo part was a deal breaker for me.

I love the app but there a few things here and there that are a little frustrating but not so much as to hinder the effectiveness of the apps overall function. My kids do complain that it takes forever to load the photo proof sometimes. However, I am noticing that this is getting them to actually do there chores more efficiently and a lot more frequently. So a lot of love from me for this app!

What's new

Attention parents! We've been busy sprucing up our app to make it shine like a newly completed chore chart. In this update, we've tackled some pesky bugs and boosted the app's performance, making it smoother than a freshly cleaned floor. So go ahead, assign those chores and watch your kids earn those rewards and allowances with ease. It's never been easier to motivate your little helpers!
