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.

  • Can’t get past adding a child

    Installed it just now. Created my account. Went to add a family member, and it requires a child’s bday. Fine, but it won’t let you type in a birthday. No drop down. No keyboard. No way to input it. So.... uninstall. Fix your app.
  • Great Concept, Lacking Functionality

    This app is a great concept, however there are some pretty significant issues. I have been using it with my daughter now for about 2 weeks and at first it seemed really promising, but as we use it it has become increasingly frustrating. Firstly, if you want to use any really useful functions you have to pay for the app. $4.99/mo. Is a bit steep in my opinion. I'd rather give that money to my daughter for her allowance. First issue is the lack of ability to approve or disapprove completed chores. This is pretty basic and should be included. They claim that the fee for the app is to cover the cost of using the banking features. I do not need those features, but would still like to use the other features, like jars!!! Perhaps the developers could consider 2 subscription levels, with a cheaper price for those of us who do not need the banking features. I would gladly pay $2/month to use all of the other features. Another annoying thing is the notifications. I am constantly getting notifications, but when I log into the app I see nothing. No notification link or section and nothing to indicate what the notification is for. Pretty annoying. I am going to plug along for a little longer, but sadly feel that if the improvements I suggested don't happen I will have to move on to another app.

    I’ve been thinking for awhile that needed to look for an app to keep track of my kids allowance. This app has been perfect so far.
  • Suggestions ✌🏾

    By lit_nether
    Great app, but 2 suggestions. I accidentally made the family without knowing it would put me as a parent, switch accounts, and ect..so please add where the owner can give a family member ownership so it would be easier then just making another family account. Next one (But short), can u remove the next option off the tutorial page, its getting in the way of the words. And ye thats all i got, u can call the suggestions a half need and want (bc its a suggestion), but good app so far, love to see more updates but one last really short-suggestion, if u update the app, make sure to still keep it simple. ✌🏾👍🏾🤟🏾😁😁😁😁

    This app has streamlined chores in our house! We have three kids. I can add chores easily, tell it what days they need to do them, and assign chores by child.

    This app has stopped my kids from fighting and begging for money at stores. They either earned it or they didn’t.
