Really good, but...
This really works for my daughter. She gets all her tasks done quickly in the morning without having to listen to my moaning voice! But... please add a bedtime routine section! At the moment this only has morning tasks but I also need bedtime tasks. The only way around it at the moment is to untick the morning tasks and add the bedtime ones in the settings. That shouldn’t need to happen. Please do this and I will carry on using the app for a long time!

We've already released bedtime routines. Let us know if you like it :).
Only 2 weeks in but great results so far
Though we have only been using the app for 2 weeks, the improvement in the morning routine has been especially dramatic. No more shouting at my daughter every 5 minutes asking her to hurry up, instead she is ready ahead of time!
We set the reward very far in the future (after a month of stars) and I am starting to think that may be too much as she has a lot of stars to collect. The sense of achievement she gets from completing the task is being killed by the fact she needs so many stars for her reward. I might lower it to a 2-week reward system with a big reward if she collects 2 certificates.
I am a parent so of course I have recommendations on how to improve the app to suit my parenting style :-).
- Could you add a feature to remove stars from tasks that are not completed satisfactorily? I can already see my daughter trying to play the system by doing 90% of the task to beat the timer.
- Could you add a feature to allow time to roll on and accumulate? I do not push my daughter too hard to complete things quickly, I give a bit of wiggle room. I want to show her that if she puts effort in one area, she can use that to make things easier in another. Then if she ends up with spare time at the end, she can have that time as screen time at the end.
Thank you for a great app.

When I first downloaded this app I felt like it wasn’t for my boys but then I upgraded it was best thing I ve done.
My one boy concentration is not the best and he is easily distracted which I normally have to ask 20 times to get dressed in the morning.
This app has works wonders my children are now racing to the clock and are helping each other. They where ready for school this morning 40mins before we had to leave I couldn’t believe my eyes. I was able to sit this morning have a cup of tea and a breakfast. Thank you for making this app!!!!
