Great so far!!
I’ve downloaded this app to keep track of chores and behavior. With a family of 7 it can get hectic at times. This app has allowed me to customize tasks for point values and also customize wrong behavior for subtracting points. We’ve set rewards for certain level of points and allow the points to roll over so they can collect those hard to reach rewards over a longer period of time. I’ve been spending the past week or so customizing it and making sure I have the permissions set just right before rolling it out to all of the devices. We don’t want big sister deducting points from little brother just because they can! I haven’t tested it in a “go live” environment just yet but wouldn’t expect any issues from what I’ve seen. I used an old device to test the child’s perspective which helped greatly to ensure they can’t remove each other’s points or mark them for a bad behavior. I love how flexible everything is and it is completely customizable. 5 children rotating chores and the app tracks that just fine when you figure out how to set it all up. The only downfall is learning how to get everything just right. It shouldn’t be to hard for a tech savvy person but not all of us are. It would help to have some tutorials or “how to’s” otherwise I could see many people getting frustrated and deleting it.

Hi Bomber, thanks for the great feedback and I hope the app proves effective in the 'live environment' :)
Great app, but buggy
We have been using this app for about a month and I love it, mostly. The interface is clean and easy to use. We love being able to add and take away points as well as leave instructions for chores and feedback. All awesome....but.....it’s a bit buggy and that’s why I cannot rage this app 5 stars.
We’ve had issues with chore rotation throwing off the entire schedule if a child misses their chore day. If one of our kids doesn’t do their chores the app doesn’t continue the rotation, it just keeps it on that child and bumps chores assigned to others, which throws everything off and we have to reset the entire thing. The rotation should continue regardless. Also, every time we add or deduct points we get an error message telling us “Sorry, we can’t do that...” but the deduction or addition works so I don’t understand why the error pop up happens. Also, the server completely shuts down without warning. We’ve all been logged out randomly, then not allowed to log back in. We’ve had to reset our family twice now in one month. It’s becoming quite a hassle, which is disappointing because we would like an app that works on a consistent basis.
I’ve tried to submit help tickets for this issue, but the website times out time and time again for support or it’s a blue screen. Not helpful.
I rarely review apps, but this one deserves it. Trying to run a 7 person household is rough, but this app helps! I love this customizations available. I can assign chores on a rotating basis throughout family members, or set them to be always available, and everything in between. I love that you can have multiple admins, so you can share the responsibility of approving tasks and assigning them. At first I thought the grocery list was a little silly that I couldn’t remove it, but I’ve grown to love that I can plug something in the list, and my other half can see it and grab it on his way home from work. It took quite awhile to get everything set up how I wanted it, but it was worth it, and now that’s it’s all set up and the kids can see their chores from their tablets it’s smooth sailing. I also love the messaging feature, for family wide conversations, and that you can comment on individual tasks to incentivize even further than just the points/rewards system. I cannot stress how many apps I’ve tried and ultimately ended up deleting because they didn’t do everything I needed. This app is insanely inclusive, and I plan to use it forever.
