ProblemCan’t load app onto kids iPhones with same account keeps saying wrong password when it’s not. It let me in with my own ph with pw..Version: 3.0.9

Good App, but.....App keeps crashing when I click or unclick a chore. Getting annoying..Version: 2.0.6

Hard to syncExtremely hard to sync between iPhones.Version: 2.6.0

Was the Best appThis WAS an incredible app! I absolutely loved it until this round of updates that have frustrated me to no end. It is now awkward to transfer funds and crashes non stop on my iPad forcing me to use my iPhones much smaller screen. With the last few updates it has lost data every time which means extra work for me...please bring back the old iallowance it was a far superior product!.Version: 2.0.2

Good if could work for all of us!I can only sync my parent info with my daughters iPad,which worked, i keep trying on my other daughters iPhone 5 and it isn’t syncing the data over, I am using a Dropbox for each of us as didn’t work with cloud. What am I doing wrong!! This is driving me crazy..Version: 2.6.0

Setup FrustrationI can’t even get this thing through setup. Every time I accidentally hit part of the screen outside of the setup wizard, it erases my progress and I have to start over. It also keeps getting stuck when I try to set up the date for an allowance. I hope this experience gets better when I make it through setup..Version: 3.0.15

Update made it worseThis app used to work very well, but since they have updated it it’s horrible. It is extremely slow and sometimes the amounts you deposit or take out of the accounts don’t show up for days so you’re never really sure if it worked or not..Version: 3.0.10

Iallowance stole my dataAfter years of using iAllowance to track spending savings and charity accounts for both of my kids, I allowed and suddenly and with no warning lock down the app unless I provide an email address. Why do they need an email address? This is an app for keeping track of children’s financial data. There is absolutely no reason they should have to associate it with any email account. And if I don’t provide one? My kids’ financial data is held hostage. Without access to this app, I truly don’t know how much money they’ve earned, or saved. I can make up amounts, but what does that teach my kids? I allowance, you’ve stolen years of my kids financial learning. I’m disgusted and done..Version: 3.0.7

Very glitchyConsidering I paid for this app I’m disappointed that it’s so glitchy. It randomly ticks chores I haven’t ticked all the time. Other glitches include missing icons and a funny way of jumping around to different chores when I select a chore in the edit screen. The idea of this app is great and it’s very comprehensive. Almost to the point of being overly complicated actually. There’s a lot to it. If the glitches were solved and the layout was improved or more customisable this would be top notch. I must mention the help I received from the app developer when I emailed while I was setting up the app. It took a few days and I’d already solved my problem but I appreciated that he got back to me (however he did ignore my comment about glitches)..Version: 2.6.0

Weird!No idea how this thing is supposed to work. The help is very good to get you set up, if only you knew what you were attempting to achieve when you were up an running. Seems far too over complicated. I deleted this app within 10 minutes of paying and using it..Version: 2.3.2

Good...Still working out but seems good so far....Version: 1.9.0

Confusing and complicatedI can’t work out whether my wife and I both paid for the app? Is it subscription based? Takes a combined degree in advanced computer programming and financial accounting to work out the jobs chart and payment schedule. Really disappointed..Version: 3.0.15

Not badIt's a good app and you have control over set up but it doesn't add up correctly. I have to manually do it which kind of defeats the object..Version: 1.10.3

Good appGood app... Can't seem to work out the total of stars tho.Version: 1.8.1

A bit 'clunky'Managed to get it set up as best I could eventually and am using it OK, but can't sync to other devices across 'Family Sharing' with iCloud so means I can't use on my phone, only my husbands as iPad is set up with his details. Also, even though I changed the currency to GBP, there are still dollar signs everywhere. I also was hoping that I could set it up so that Stars could automatically become money once the kids have earned 10 for example. Can't access the help file either - get an error!.Version: 2.4.2

Good but needs workThe concept was good but I think the app still needs work. For example I could not delete an entry and when I intuitively clicked on an already checked box he app entered two checks or doubled the amount owed for work instead of unchecking..Version: 2.6.0

Do not recommend any longerI do not recommend this app any more it has been great until the last update where now you are not allowed to is the app without creating an online cloud account. I do not want to create an online account i want to keep track on my phone how i have always done. Now i have no way to tell what my kids balances are since i am not allow to open the anymore with out a big brother type account..Version: 3.0.1

Not easy to useFor me this app isn't what I wanted, I wanted simple and i find it confusing.Version: 2.5.1

Poor implementationFairly well designed, but the parent/child setup is wildly poor. Having to enter a password EVERY time I want to use it? No thanks. There needs to be parent accounts and child accounts, and the simple ability to restrict what a child account can do without tying it to a password. My kids have phones, they should be able to access and record their chores. I should be able to use the app as an admin without having to enter passwords all the time..Version: 2.6.0

TroubleI looked how to set up the child and chore in the video but there's no plus button for the child.Version: 2.2.1

Good concept glitchy syncIt’s a great app, easy to set up and manage. But a nightmare to sync between devices. My son does his jobs and tucks them off on his iPad. I then check and approve the payment for the jobs on my iPhone. Drop box is a glitchy method to sync between devices. I’m looking for a better app..Version: 2.6.3

I want to love this!I have set up this app to be used with my two children. They each have their own device, an iPad and an iPhone and every time I sync it between devices it jacks up the currency’s and the stars and even deletes chores and rewards. I have added the chores and the responsibilities back in there several times and they keep getting deleted. The order and the sections keeps hitting deleted and chores are put into certain areas and mixed up. Also the Curren$y keeps getting altered. I have all the parental controls on no one else has access to this account. I am using my Dropbox to sync all devices due to the fact that everyone has their own iCloud account. We are all using my dropbox account. Please get back to me - I want this to work..Version: 2.6.3

Love this!This makes it so much easier to track kids allowance and easily set it up for spending savings and giving. With actual money, my kids were always getting into each other's piggy banks and playing with their money and never really had any clue how much they had. Plus it was a pain to remember to get actual cash to give them for their allowance. This is way easier. They are four, six, and nine years old..Version: 2.5.1

Parental lock doesn't workThe check that the verification response is the same as the original doesn't work. The error message is that they are different -I entered test in both cases - not much room for error there..Version: 2.0.1

Concerns with accuracy + poor updateThe latest update (to 3.0) has a couple problems. First, you are now required to sync with the app’s developer, so Dropbox is no longer supported. You can’t even get into the app until you create an account with them to sync. Extremely inconvenient, as I needed to verify a balance for a kid, but didn’t want to set up an account yet. Next, I had previously disabled the allowance for one of my kids for the past several months. The updated app treated that whole period as if it were enabled, so suddenly they had a huge balance. I had to individually delete 28 entries in each bank. [Update re: the following paragraph: the developer is correct that the allowance was set up using percentage, explaining the periodic penny shift. Adding one star back.] As for the accuracy, as I was deleting each individual entry as described, the balance would occasionally be reduced by an extra penny. The whole-dollar amounts of the erroneously added entries were not tabulated as precisely. It was a difference of a few cents, but concerning nonetheless..Version: 3.0.0

IAllowanceThis is a great app with very deep functionality. Ideal for simply keeping track of pocket money of, if you need it, more complex schemes of chores, rewards and behaviour monitoring. Much less stressful than our old piece of paper on the fridge..Version: 1.10.3

Now REQUIRES and Iallowance accountOpened up the app today to find that I can’t access my data unless i create an iAllowance account for syncing. This was a great app, but this requirement is ridiculous. I paid for this app partly due to its support for dropbox syncing. Now, it seems, they want my data and are going to force users to create an account before even opening the program. STAY AWAY from developers like iAllowance that force you to provide your data and remove functionality within a product you previously paid for..Version: 3.0.1

Not worth time-never mind $$This is the absolute worst app I have ever used. I never write reviews but felt compelled to do so. After creating chores for my 4 kids I found that as I went back into the app it would lose its memory. Pre-canned chores like empty the trash would become “new chore” on my sons ipad. When I would select “fold laundry” I would come back in after closing the app and it changed to selection to “make bed”. There is no way to accurately track what is happening unless you remember every detail and constantly update. I’ve already spent too many hours re-fixing thinking perhaps it was a user error only to find out this app doesn’t work..Version: 2.6.2

UselessI have family sharing set up between my account and my kids. I'm logged into my phone using my iCloud account. My son is logged in through his iCloud account. This app doesn't sync between the devices like that. Unless you have same iCloud account in all devices, it won't sync. I feel ripped off..Version: 2.6.3

Time consuming -should be able to have a chore list the same for all children.The more children you have the worse this is There should be a basic list that must be done that can be copied to all children. Having to repeat for each child is a waste - it doesn’t seem to sync well between parent and child.Version: 3.0.15

UK currency?Any idea how to get British pounds to appear please?.Version: 1.10.5

It’s okIt’s actually really great, but the sync is awful, because there isn’t even a sign in, and the help is really bad too. Fix your app! It’s so frustrating.Version: 2.6.0

Set up too long!Takes so long to set it up..added all the chores but now I need to add them to each person and input dollar values each time!! Should be able to do all that in the set up and quick add chores to everyone.Version: 3.0.15

Would love the app if it counts correctlyI paid for and downloaded the app to easily keep track of my kids allowances and thought this app would be perfect. I made accounts for each one of my kids and was able to set a personal allowance for each one. Unfortunately the app doesn’t count correctly. The sum of their allowances is not equal to the total displayed. The end up thinking they have way more money than they actually have. Love the idea, but unfortunately the app doesn’t work for multiple kids. I tried to contact the help line, but never got any response..Version: 3.0.10

Waste of moneyLots of syncing problems between my son’s app and mine. It makes it impossible to know whether he’s done his chores or not and how much of his pocket money I should give him as a result, his chores are all valued for his total overall pocket money. I got this app so I didn’t need to keep giving him reminders to do his chores but he doesn’t get the notifications. I get them instead. I got this based on the other reviews but it’s definitely not met expectations and we’ve stopped using it..Version: 2.6.0
