SIMPLE AND FUN
iAllowance may look simple at first glance - the bookshelves and chalkboard make this app very approachable. However, iAllowance is a powerful family finance management system, allowing you to set up scheduled payouts, deduct expenditures, and show category totals - even search for a specific transaction!
SUPPORT FOR MULTIPLE CHILDREN
You can setup iAllowance to track the finances for all your kids, each with a separate photo for easy identification and as many banks as you desire.
UNLIMITED NUMBER OF BANKS
Kids are very busy these days. From general spending money to clothing allowances, gas money to cell phones accounts, kids and parents have a lot to keep track of in today's world. With iAllowance, you can create an unlimited number of banks for each of your kids. Each bank has its own transaction list where you can add, edit and delete transactions as often as you need to.
If you don't want to use real money, you can setup any bank to use stars or even time. Mix and match star, time and real money banks to make iAllowance work best for you. Furthermore, you can assign an optional interest rate to any of the banks to help teach your children the value of saving money over the long term.
Let iAllowance do the remembering for you! It's easy to set up any number of allowances that will pay out automatically at repeating intervals. Each allowance can be set up to pay into one or more of the child's banks. There is no need to setup a single allowance for each bank.
Track all your children's chores with iAllowance. Get your kids involved in the process and watch the chores get done! Use the reminders to push alerts to your kids - even if iAllowance is not running.
Kids are more motivated when they have goals to work towards. You can setup rewards that you can choose to 'cash in' when you child reaches the set goal.
We feel that it's important to get your kids involved in managing their own finances, but it is also important that you have a choice as to whether or not they can edit the information. By turning on the built-in parental controls, you can restrict your kids to a view only mode while you maintain full editorial control for yourself.
SYNCING / AUTOMATIC BACKUP
Use your Dropbox.com account or iCloud to sync iAllowance with all of your iOS devices. iAllowance will automatically store local backups of your data so you can always get back to where you need to.
We are certain that iAllowance will meet all your family finance needs. So, make the leap with Jump Gap Software's iAllowance.

Ratings and Reviews
I almost love it!
I love how easy it is to keep track of how much my kids have earned. It's great for on the go when we're at the store and they see something they really want, I can quickly check if they have enough money. Love that I can predetermine their savings and charity money and it works automatically.
Some reviewers said navigation was hard, but I found it fairly intuitive. Yes, it takes a little bit of time to figure the app out, but it's not terrible.
I do have two complaints though...
I have always based my kids allowance on the amount of chores they've completed (getting the stars), but there is no option for this. They get their allowance whether they've done their stuff or not. I have to manually do a transaction to take money away that they didn't earn. I really wish there was an option to base allowance on stars. (Or keep it the same way since some people do pay the same every week no matter what.) Not sure why I put in there that each star was worth 10¢ because it doesn't really matter.
Also, I've been able to sync to my iPad and my son's iPod, but not my other son's iPod. I've tried both the opulence syncing (all of their iPods are I my account) and through Dropbox, but for some reason it always syncs with the one iPod but not the other. It makes it hard when I have 4 kids trying to record their jobs everyday...they always want to record all at the same time, of course.
If those two things worked, this app would be perfect in my opinion!
*Sync fixed*Cannot get the app to sync
I just set up the app on my device and synced to iCloud. My kids iPads are in my iCloud but nothing appears for them when I sync. I went to the FAQ page on the website and watch the tutorial and my settings look nothing like the tutorial settings. I have a Dropbox account but do not have the option of choosing to sync to Dropbox in the app.
I was contacted by the developer and was able to figure out how to sync between my device and my kids device. I am opting to use Dropbox. Setting up the Dropbox sync was much easier than iCloud. That being said we have just started to use it. I will update again once we get the hang of it.
Developer Response ,
Hello. Syncing via iCloud is not possible if you are using Family Sharing accounts. If this is the case for you, then you will need to sync with a common Dropbox account. You will need to unlink from iCloud before you will see the option to connect to your Dropbox account. If you run into any issues, please reach out to:
firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll be happy to help.
Was PERFECT for what I wanted to track. I love that you can track time and assign minute amounts as rewards for chores. We use chores as a way to earn "screen time" (tablet, video games, tv) and this has been an amazing way to track it. The kids love seeing that check mark that adds time into their "bank" and I added a monthly allowance that is automatically added to their bank on the first of every month. I can't recommend this app enough. Once you take the time to set it all up, it is a complete breeze to use. And changing or adding things is easy once you know your way around the app. Love it! Thank you for making something so useful!
