Cute and fun just one thing

This app is pretty good when it comes to getting chores and activities done in an organized way. The only minor issue that made me sort of upset was when I was getting the app set up and adding stuff to my profile it asked me to choose my gender and like always pink on one side blue on the other. I just feel like that isn’t necessary because many children worry about choosing one gender and that in my opinion should be changed it just makes me upset to see websites or apps with the boy and girl “colors”
I would like if there was a rather not say button. But for the main concept of the app is really simple to use 🙂 it’s perfect to get things done and have fun doing it.

Developer Response ,

We're quite sure that with the boy and girl theme we cover absolutely most of our kids' users. Obviously, there are some users whose expectations are not covered. We care about them and we want them to be happy as well, therefore, we advise them to find an alternative app in the sea of apps that will meet their expectations.

Inspiring motivation in my 6 year old twins!

This app is amazing because it has caused my 6 year old twins to be motivated to wake up and get ready for school, as well as begin the process of going to bed! They look forward to doing their routine! I love how you can edit the order of the tasks to be done, and add new ones.

My only criticism is that, there’s no way to set this app up for multiple children. Also, when it comes time to take pictures, you have to back completely out of the program and go to program settings. It would be nice to have each child have their own space within the platform, and be able to take their pictures when the app asks for a new picture without backing out and going to settings.

All in all, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this app!!! Well done!

Good Concept, "Trial" is Too Limited

I love the idea of it, but unfortunately, you cannot test many features without paying for it first. Nearly every single option is blocked behind a pay wall and they do not offer a proper trial (that I found, at least).
And finally, I noticed the first review, the "top voted" review for the app. A user requested that the app not lock any specific gender into a color, such as girls get pink and boys get blue. They were very kind with their request and yet, the developer responded very rudely. To the developers, you literally told someone to go find a different app because they requested a change in color schemes. It doesn't matter if you cover most users by assigning them to stereotypical color schemes for genders; what about making your users feel valued instead of passive aggressively telling them to leave your app? It's about making the child comfortable.
Cool concept, but I don't want to support developers who treat their users like that.
