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.

  • Nice app

    We started this app as a way to keep track of chores, but the ability to manage allowance is great as well. We dont require chores to get allowance in our family, but its been really great that Homey is able to adjust to our system as well.
  • Great concept but buggy

    Don’t even try using jars, the overlays will never dismiss, necessitating force quitting over and over. Then it made 3 copies of my jars? But if you try to delete them... stuck overlay and force quit... what a mess. Again, this app has some great thinking behind it, now the code base needs to catch up. You also can’t do any jobs before all responsibilities are complete for the day. Sounds good in theory? Unless a responsibility is to brush your teeth before bed, set 30 before bedtime. Then it’s literally impossible to ever do jobs...
  • Love it

    I feel this app is teaching kids that saving money takes time, and that they need to wait and work hard to get good things. It's really visual, and the kids love it. I am missing some features like the ability for parents to add interests on their kids saving, but I really like where this app is going.
  • Pretty good

    My kids HATE chores, and I have to nag all the time. This app was recommended to me, and I was skeptical, but so far my kids are doing chores without me saying anything. Pretty great.
  • Great app

    This app has been such a great help for our family of 5. Other apps are either too adult, or too childish, but Homey is perfect. My 7 year old, and my two teenagers, all use it almost daily, and it's great to keep track of allowance. Great app

    This app stands head and shoulders above other chore apps out there! The design is great, not to childish, and it has all the features you might need. The team behind this app is really responsive, and they are doing great work. Thank you, best app for families for sure!
  • Buggy, cancel before free week ends!

    We’ve looked at a number of chore trackers for our family, and Homey’s features put it close to the top. That said, it kept freezing on my iPhone 8 on several actions. I tried to cancel at end of free week, but $50 charge for whole year was apparently default and had gone through. Ugh. Now using OurHome and much happier.
  • Great app but few bugs

    I love this app but there are times when I choose an option but it freezes and leaves me on that option.👎🏽
  • Looks like the latest update is a bust

    We love this app, has helped our boys with responsibility as well as thugs like time management. App will open for me, but it’s completely blank (white screen). We didn’t realize just how much or mornings depended on homey until it didn’t work! Usually a 5 Star app.
  • Great idea, terrible implementation

    One of the chores the dev team needs to set for itself is beta testing and removal of bugs. Issues with tasks not being able to be approved. Issues with kids being able to approve some of their own chores. Issues with app telling me things are premium features, when I have (had) a premium subscription. Then today upon opening the app to approve chores, all I saw was white space and the menu icon. Open the menu, more white space. So I deleted the app and reinstalled it, but now I am unable to log into my household and get a ‘wrong household’ error. The idea is fantastic though. Our 12yr old has never been so enthusiastic about chores. Even our 15yr old has been doing more chores. But until this is fixed it’s back to the drawing board and looking for an alternative app.
