Your Ideal Parenting Partner - Thumsters is the agile and fun incentive based behavioral tracking app, designed to encourage desired behaviors in your children and develop great lifelong behavioral habits. Partnering with you and your child will be our privilege.

"As a busy family of 6, tracking my kids behavior in real time has been hugely beneficial. My kids love getting involved with setting their goals, which they get a huge sense of achievement reaching. It's been so helpful in helping shift hard to budge undesirable behaviors!"

* Set up multiple children
* Thumbs Up Streak tracking
* Change the value of Thumbs Up 'Reasons'
* Access Protection via Pin or Fingerprint
* Provide your child multiple goals / incentives
* Basic Goal Reporting
* Kid friendly design

* Multi Device Account Sharing / Magic Code connection
* Advanced Reports
* Custom Behavior Reasons

Thumsters allows you to set up and manage multiple family members for free.

Set up 'streaks' as a fun challenge, where kids can try and beat their previous best 'streak' of Thumbs Up.

Deal with/encourage a certain behavior your child is currently struggling with by changing the value of each Thumbs Up or Thumbs Down for different behaviors in the app settings.

To prevent kids sneaking their own Thumbs Up, access can be protected via a fingerprint, Face ID or unique Thumsters passcode.

Setup as many goals / incentives for each child as you like. Once a goal is achieved an interactive fun screen pops up for your child, with the ability for parents to 'set again' that particular goal. This feature is great for recurring goals such as daily screen time.

* How many thumbs they have been given for each day/period.
* Tracking of their current goals / incentives.
* Which rewards are available/claimed.

With interactive screens, fun graphics and sounds, Thumsters was designed with kids in mind. We engaged an up and coming young talented Australian designer Caleb Gregory (15 years) to help us make the overall 'look and feel' of Thumsters both appealing and relevant.

The following features are available on both our monthly and yearly subscriptions.

Multi Device Account Sharing/Family Cloud
(only one subscription required)
The ability to sync the app across multiple devices and family users can be beneficial. This feature may come in handy particularly with Grandparents/Nanny's/in-home-carers, or families with shared custody agreements where children may live in multiple homes. Goals, Thumbs Up and Downs and reports are shared between all devices in real time.

Advanced Reporting
The advanced reports were designed to give a more comprehensive breakdown of your child's behavior. WHAT they are getting the bulk of their thumbs for; this may help you formulate a plan of action for helping them with certain behaviors. WHEN these behaviors are taking place; helps parents discover potential 'patterns' leading to certain behaviors.

Useful tool

This has been very helpful for my 10 year old. I paid for the subscription and was never able to access any of the additional functions that are supposed to be available through that. After I already paid it continued to tell me that those functions were only available through the subscription, when I clicked on subscription it informed me I already had a subscription. I cancelled the subscription but still use the app- would live to access additional features.

Update- I am changing my review to 5 stars. After leaving my original review the developer reached out to me and fixed the bug that was keeping me from accessing all of the options. This was a very fast and painless process and I love the features that I’m able to now access. This is an amazing app and is one of the best tools to help my child! Thank you Thumbsters!

Hi there. So Sorry to hear you had issues. Could you please contact and we will help resolve this for you.

Love this App! ❤️

I began using this App for my 8 year old to track good behavior. He has ADHD and it was recommended by his behavior therapist. If he displays a good act, he gets a point. We reinforce good behavior so we do not remove points. When he reaches his goal, he is rewarded. What’s really neat is my 2 year old loves the sound of a point being granted. It sounds like a trumpet. I have started using the App for her as well for potty training. 🤷‍♀️ Who knew? Each time she uses the potty I say “let’s get a point” and I let her click on the thumbs up and then click on a random good act. She gets so excited when the horn blows. She says “Mom, did you hear it?” It’s been a win/win for both kids.

That is great to hear. We are sure you'll have great success and give loads of thumbs up to your children!

Great idea for tracking behaviors if I can work some kinks out

Just started using the app to track my sons ADHD behaviors as we start some new supplements and diet changes and want to keep track of any positive changes. I have also paid for the upgraded app so I could access the full reports, detailing which behaviors are increasing and decreasing and what time of day they appear to be happening. However, two things about this app are already very frustrating and I wish were different:

1. I wish I could set goals according to specific behaviors and not just by total thumbs up. For example, “Go one week without lying and get a reward”. Is it possible to do this?

My biggest issue though is...

2. I often am busy or forget to put things in right when they happen and wish I could go in retrospectively. For example at night when I have a chance go back and add thumbs up or down from during the day. Otherwise in the report it looks like all behaviors are happening late at night.

Also, are we able to remove a thumbs up or thumbs down that we added accidentally? I can’t figure out how to do that.

These negative aspects make my review lower but maybe it is just user error and there is a way to fix these problems I’m having. If so, I’ll gladly change my review!

Developer Response ,

Thank you so much for the constructive feedback. Good news. The version currently in development allows for allocation of thumbs to goals and will also includes an undo feature.

We will discuss your request for retrospective thumbs as we understand your use case, but would need to consider the wider effect on user experience if it were to be included in a future release.

Thanks again.
The Thumsters Team.
