Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Don't waste your time

The idea is great but the app is full of technical glitches and the technical support is absent at best. Their terms even say their technical support is voluntary. I've had this paid membership for less than 30 days and will not be continuing. Biggest waste of money.

Best chore/allowance tracker we ever used

Homey was recommended to us a couple months ago, and we've been subscribers since. All my 4 kids from a 6yo (he has some trouble with it, but manages) to my 17yo use it almost daily. I would say this app is best suited for ages 8 to 14, but can work for everyone. I even set a couple of chores for my husband :) We mostly only use the banking feature to deposit allowance to the saving account for our youngest, since he's the big saver. Others usually request a payout in cash or have me order it online, and I like knowing what they are saving for. If they want to buy anything in the store, I can buy it for them, and deduct from their wallets. I LOVE the responsibilities feature, since I don't want to pay kids for each and every chore like some other apps expected, and I really like the photoproof feature. We only ever experienced technical issues on the iPad, we mostly use Homey on our phones. All in all, this app has made a huge difference!
