Only Child? Chores for Parents? YES!

The app is extremely customizable, which is wonderful. And it allows you to assign chores to children AND to parents, so it's ideal for parents of only children, and families who are managing ADHD, Anxiety, Autism, etc. The interface is a little less than intuitive, so it took me a few days to master it - and I worked in IT. Watching the how-to video is a must. Hopefully future updates will streamline the UI. I tried five different family organizing, chore/reward, and self-care apps, and this one was far and away the best. Mostly due to how customizable it is, so expect a frontload of work.

Is It Any Good?

If you're tired of juggling multiple apps to coordinate with your family, this might just be the solution you need. S'moresUp - Best Chores App checks a lot of boxes for busy parents and kids, allowing them to manage all of their activities and expectations in one spot. The drawback is that there's a lot happening in this app. Tasks that should be simple, like assigning a chore, may feel overwhelming with so many options. This isn't a roadblock, but parents should expect to put in some time becoming familiar with all the features. Luckily, the kids' dashboard is more streamlined. They should have no trouble diving right in. And for families who don't like to tie chore to rewards, kids can work toward donations or just toward chosen activities when they finish assigned tasks. S'moresUp - Best Chores App will be the perfect option for a lot of families and the free pricetag means there's nothing to lose in tryng it out.

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.
