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 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.

Connecting your bank account and safely transferring allowance and chore money directly to your child's savings account. Multiple saving jars for each child.

    In the app it says the price is $4.99 for a monthly subscription. However, I got billed for $6.99. Nice bait and switch guys. I can’t rate the app yet as I haven’t gotten that far yet.
  • Highly recommended

    The only thing I would change about this app are the notifications. I don't need notifications every time one of my kids completes a chore, but I don't want to turn them off completely, since I still want notifications when allowance is due etc. Please let me know when that is possible.
  • Free Trial Sign-up won’t work

    Can’t get to a sign-up screen to even register for a free trial. The button doesn’t do anything. I tried clicking monthly and yearly and neither of them work. So for now, it’s a dud app.
  • So worth it

    Homey saves me so much time, since we have 7 kids. Keeping up with the chore chart is just not possible for us. But this app makes it so easy! I love it!
  • Very nice app!!

    My daughter discover this app, and SHE was the one to recommend we use it. I never expected her to take initiative in anything relating to chores. It seems to do the trick for now, and I like that I can have all my kids on one app.

    Kids are all about technology, and this app really motivates them to pitch in. I wish for better overview on the parent side of the app, but all in all this is a great app.
  • love it

    If you’re looking for an app that will allow you to manage your child’s allowance and/or provide your child with a chore agenda each day, stop here and download this one. You will need nothing else. This is what apps are supposed to be

    We're a family of 7 and we NEEDED this app so bad. It makes managing the family and homeschooling so easy for everyone. Thank you!
  • Lots of glitches

    It has become very frustrating because the filtering glitches. You will set the filter for the kids to show that days chores but sometimes their chores show sometimes they don’t, then you have to tell them to change the filter to any and only do the ones that say today. You can’t see an easy layout for the week to make sure you don’t have too many chores on one day. I subscribed but after the frustration over the past week and a half I think I’ll cancel.
  • Neat features but too many problems

    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...
