This is a great tool for educating kids about financial responsibility. As adults add or subtract money, kids can see their balance grow or shrink over time and can work toward goals in a visible way. The line chart that tracks the ups and downs of each pot's balance provides another way for kids to understand their finances. Families will also appreciate that they can choose whether or not to provide the Spend and Give accounts. They may start younger kids with a single account and then add on as kids grow older. The overall interface is streamlined and allows users to focus on the task at hand. There are occasional tasks and actions that aren't as intuitive, however. For example, the option to switch from a parent account to a child account is located in a different place than the one to switch from a child account back to the parent. Families who are looking for an allowance tracking tool will likely find all that they need in RoosterMoney Allowance Manager. As a bonus, the free account feels just as polished as the Plus version. Those who don't yet need chore tracking or other premium features won't feel the need to upgrade simply to have a more positive experience.

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.
