Description

The perfect app to teach your kids about money through completing chores and working towards goals. Don’t listen to us, listen to those that fell in love with it. “I love that the Homey not only encourages kids to develop a strong work ethic, but it teaches kids how money is earned, encourages long-term goal setting, instills real life financial skills, and connects the whole family with a fun approach to paid chores.” Crystal, MoneySavingMom “Homey is a great organizational tool for families!” Best Apps for Kids “Homey helps remind my children what jobs they haven’t done yet, so I don’t need to. It even inspires them to work a little harder to earn allowance. Better yet, they are learning to save up that allowance for a bigger reward.” Gloria, JugglingMother “A picture says a thousand words. And with Homey, those words are “this is the chore you’re supposed to be doing right now.” Snap a photo of your kid’s unmade bed and send it to them with a deadline, and then they can send a photo back once it’s taken care of.” Fatherly Features: - set daily, weekly or monthly recurring or one time chores for the whole family - set chores that are responsibilities and you won't pay for, and jobs to teach kids how to earn money or rewards - manage allowance and extra money rewards for each child - transfer allowance to a bank account (US only), or mark it as payed out in cash - track IOU - add or remove funds from wallet - set saving jars with financial goals - kids learn to manage their funds - Homey syncs across all devices in the household SHOW KIDS HOW MONEY IS EARNED With Homey you can pay kids commissions based on chores they do around the house like taking out the trash, cleaning their room, or mowing the grass. And you can also set responsibilities that are required to teach kids that everyone needs to contribute to the household. SUPPORT LONG-TERM GOALS AND SAVING Teach kids delayed gratification and financial responsibility by providing them with incentives that differ in value. With Homey kids learn they need to work longer or harder to earn more. TEACH REAL LIFE FINANCIAL SKILLS Homey enables you to transfer allowance and money kids earn directly to their savings or checking account or tracks the money as IOU and pay it out in cash. This way you can teach your child how banking works, they can accumulate interests on their savings and you can be sure that their money will stay safe. By subscribing to Homey Monthly or Homey Yearly you'll get access to other great features like: Unlimited family members. Connecting your bank account and safely transferring allowance and chore money directly to your child's savings account. Multiple saving jars for each child. Adding or deducting money from the wallet.

    I used this app with the free trial and decided I would go ahead and keep it after the trial. Keep in mind that the developer said in previous reviews that the monthly fee was to provide the ability to link to your bank account. I would be happy to pay the fee, if only my bank was one of the very few banks that are supported with this app. Now I feel like I’m paying full price for this app without getting all of the features. I would suggest adding a whole lot more financial institutions to your list or offer an option for someone to pay a onetime fee to use all of the other features. I find it ludicrous that I am expected to pay a monthly subscription fee when I can’t even use the service they are charging for.
  • Good for families of three

    A glorified chore chart shouldn’t cost you anything. I see potential in this app, but the ease of access isn’t there. Max amount of family members you can have is 3 for those that don’t subscribe

    This app is phenomenal. BEFORE: Son, I need you to clean up your room (dad, not now!) empty the garbage (dad, maybe tomorrow!) feed the dog (he's your dog!)...etc. while the wife and I dole out arbitrary disciplines and inconsistent consequences. AFTER: Dad, what else can I do? I need to earn extra money so I can buy a new game! Hey Dad, I put the dishes in the dishwasher without being told, do I get a boost? Same chores, same responsibilities, but use an app that shows black and white progress and assign value to them, and boom, things get done faster, and I feel better about his free time. If things don't get done, and he complains about not getting daily computer time or weekly allowance, I just show him the app and he understands the simple concept of quid pro quo. Well done.

    Homey has EVERYTHING we need! If you need an app to set up recurring chores, have notifications pop up on each family member's devices, manage allowance and money for the kids, this is the app for you! I just found that this app actually works great with Dave Ramsey's system that we kind of follow, so I might redo all the chores according to his commissions system. But it is so customizable!! I was having trouble setting up everyone's permissions (I set up my son as a parent by mistake), and the support desk was quick to help me out! I love Homey!
  • Best allowance tracker

    I was looking for an app that would enable me to set up chores and allowance for kids - they usually do just one or the other, and I really didn't want to use two apps. Homey does it all, and it does it perfectly. I love how I can set up recurring chores, make them rotate among kids, extra jobs. The wallet functionality on the kids' side is superb! It teaches them budgeting and saving and I love that!
  • fantastic

    Very good app in my opinion, however need better parental controls. Even after adjusting in settings, kids are still able to change names, and can edit a little more than they should be able to. Few bugs need worked out also. But the overall purpose and concept of this app makes me happy.
  • Very impressed!

    Homey was recommended to me by a friend, and it's perfect for us! We're foster parents, so our family is large, and it requires A LOT of organization. Homey is really motivating for the kids, and it makes our work so much easier. I use it to manage all the recurring daily and weekly responsibilities for each kid (also use it for behavior). I'll also use it during the summer to set up extra jobs for the kids, and they're actually looking forward to that! I like that it teaches them to be responsible with money as well.

    This app makes my kids work together! Before this app we had to ask them to do their chores over and over, and hang allowance over their head, and they were always fighting. Now they are motivated, see what each has to do, and they are even asking for extra jobs. I really like how the app keeps a tally of everything, and how the reports work week by week and allow me to go back. This is a FANTASTIC app!!

    We just started using it, but it seems to be a great motivator for my young kids. Just one question, is there any way that I could download this to my son's iPad so he can see his daily task list? I don't want him to be an admin and have access to make changes like his dad and I. Thanks!
