Children can track progress to earn REWARDS that you define. Rewards can range from earning screen time or allowance to a family dance party! Link rewards to chores, behavior, habits, and goals to teach kids accountability. Using the FamJam reward manager encourages positive, sustainable habits in children.
What HABITS do you want your children to establish? Whether it is reading every day, exercising, practicing a musical instrument, or anything else, the FamJam habit manager makes it easy to track progress and ensure kids are consistently working to develop habits. Link habits to daily actions and rewards to inspire the behavior and actions you want from children in a positive way.
What GOALS do your children have? Kids can use FamJam as a tool to track step-by-step progress toward their daily, weekly, and monthly goals.

Could use some tweaks
I love that it’s cross platform and the kids can even download it on their fire tablets. One major flaw is that you can select an individual point value that has been rewarded and undo it. And there’s no way to undo a goal reward value at all. If we could go into history and delete specific events that would be so much easier than “undo last completion ” or worst case “clean slate”
Also adding another parent account is difficult when u try to share it it prompts you to make an account but then if they already have one you can’t add them as a secondary user.
Just those few tweaks would make it so much more user friendly and less frustrating when your trying to get the hang of it all
UPDATE: THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! Being able to edit each action in history makes it SO MUCH more forgiving when you are still trying to figure out how it all works!!!! This is an amazing app!!!

Thanks for the feedback! If you go to the 3 line menu, click on "Parent Review," then "History." Here you can review, edit, and undo anything for each child. The undo last completion is there just in case of an accidental drag and drop! We can delete a user if you want to set up as a secondary account instead which is the better way for families. We will make this more clear. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks, Brian
Best chores app like ClassDojo
This school year started off rocky with distance-learning from home. My kids use ClassDojo at school and I was hoping to find something similar for home. FamJam is a great alternative to ClassDojo for tracking behavior, chores, goals, and habits. Remote learning has gone better now that the children can balance schoolwork and home duties while earning rewards. I highly recommend it for kids doing homeschool or distance learning, especially if they use ClassDojo at school.
I love the idea!
I have 5 daughters and they each have iPads, which they use for school. I was excited for this app because it doesn’t require the most recent iOS which is awesome because their iPads are old. I wanted something to help create organization and routine in our home. I would gladly give his app 5 stars but for some reason it keeps crashing on 4 of our 5 iPads. The app downloaded on each one, but when I tried to open it, the screen appeared white and then went to the Home Screen. I never could get it to open on our other iPads. ☹️ I did try turning the iPad off and restarting it but it still did not work.

Hi, I am so sorry you are having this problem! FamJam will work with IOS 10 and higher. Are you able to get to 10 on your iPads? I run FamJam on our 4th generation iPad with IOS 10. Please let me know what you can run and I will see if we can come up with a solution for you. Thanks, Brian P.S. my email is email@example.com
