  • The kids like it! Sep 27, 2019

    By D-MR
    We’ve been using Rooster with our kids for about two weeks now and so far so good! It’s a work in progress to get the kids to refer to the app for their chores, but they are quickly learning that if they don’t get those chores done daily, they lose a percentage of their allowance. The kids DO really like having that visual of their money. My daughter blew through her Spend account the first week and then asked to rent a movie last night. I asked her how much money she had and when she checked she realized what she had done. I say that’s a good lesson learned. I’m still getting the hang of the app myself. I find checking on the chores a little difficult. It seems like sometimes the chores disappear from the list but I don’t remember the kids actually doing them. And I’m not too crazy about the Allowance Jobs and the Extra Jobs being on two different lists. I would like to see them flow together and maybe just tagged differently. I would also like to see a setting that allows a percentage of the Extra Jobs money go directly into savings. So far only the Allowance Jobs have that option. I emailed the developers about this and they got back to me within a day and said they would add it to their request list for the next update. Overall I’m pleased with the app!

    Whether you do a monthly allowance, want to pay by the job, or both, this App takes care of it. I LOVE the “regulars” for their monthly bills. (That’s right, the kids have bills too! Allowance is not just play money, they have expenses too!) The way we use it, our kids have regular jobs they “must do” to get their monthly allowance, say $20. But, they also have monthly bills, like their X-box Live, Netflix and Apple Music subscriptions. They’re all divided between our kids each month and that comes out of their “allowance” as well. It also allows flexibility in if/how they get paid that monthly “allowance”. They only do 50% of the jobs? They only get 50% of the pay. Won’t have enough to pay “regulars”? I guess you’d better make up the difference with some “extra earners” like vacuuming out the van, etc. I can split their $ into spending, saving and giving pots. The kids choose rewards: what they want to spend their money on. Now, when we’re at the store, they ask to check their Rooster Account to see if they have enough $ for X. Will they have enough for regulars if they buy X? Maybe they can do some extra earners, or make sure they’ve done their daily chore more often. Ahh, putting the decision back in their court is so satisfying. ☺️

    Just got our younger one a card to add to the older child's for a couple of years. Youngest is making a regular donation to charity and they have both teamed up to save for a VR kit! Have happily recommended Rooster to friends and family. Any issues (and there's barely been any)in have been resolved quickly and helpfully.

    We have been looking for a way to keep track of our kiddos’ spending money in a more on-the-go, fun, user-friendly way. We recently found the RoosterMoney app. It’s all about managing pocket money with kids and teaching them about the value of money. When we set it up, we had them bring us the amount of cash that he wanted to deposit in their RoosterMoney “bank”. We can both have access to the same account so he can deposit and withdraw money from his phone and I can from mine. We can make notes for each transaction and we can also deposit/withdraw the same amount from multiple kids at the same time. When adding their “weekly commission” we can also sort it by “give”, “save”, and “spend” so we are teaching budgeting principles. It’s fun for them to see their money going up (or down) and helping them track how much money they have to work with in each of those 3 categories. It’s also free to join with the option of upgrades to add chores and several other features. We are loving it so far!

    I use this daily with the children for chores and behaviour and have noticed a huge improvement in both. They are actually all excited to do chores. Highly recommende

    Nice when it works but constant challenges paying for it since it's located in UK. I've tried to pay for an annual plan at least 10 times and fraud detection at bank flags it. When trying to work with the developers and the bank no one can seem to give me an answer on how to process a payment, each one pointing a finger and the other.

    I finally decided to go with a rooster account for my kids, despite it being only app based, without a website. Began to regret when it wouldn't talk to 1password to get my card details. Then it prompted me to scroll through 14 years of calendar, 1 month at a time, to enter my date of birth. At this point I gave up. If the first two UI components are this bad, I fear for what will come next. Sadly going to have to go with a competitor. Please build a functional website.

  • Paid version is good, but needs improvement Jul 4, 2019

    By Ngpetersen3
    If you pay the premium version, you can set allowance jobs which are a kids regular chores and extra jobs, which are additional tasks that your kids can do to earn extra. When you set these up, you can set the frequency with which a task appears on the list. For example you can creat an extra job of cleaning the bathroom and set that task to repeat weekly. So when your kid cleans the bathroom this week, it won’t come up again till next week. THE PROBLEM: I have three kids and I set up extra chores in the list that all 3 can do. My daughter did the bathroom and crossed it off. It’s not on her list anymore but my two sons still have it on theirs. This means they can now clean the clean bathroom and check it off on their list too! I set the frequency I want the task done, not based on which kid does it. This definitely needs to change as the alternative is for me to make each kid a list for themselves which defeats the reason I’m paying for this. Hope to see it corrected soon!

  • Love the idea - extremely poor execution! May 31, 2020

    By DocGratis
    Conceptually I love this idea and I’m generally pretty easy to please with software/apps but, I can not believe how annoying this software is. I signed up for the rooster plus trial with the full intention of keeping the subscription going but, after wasting my time for the last half an hour setting it up, it’s pretty clear I will be closing the account ASAP. This software is not intuitive or user friendly at all. It’s obnoxious how much you have to click around to add basic tasks/chores. It’s absolutely stupid that you can’t see the tasks you’ve created and assigned in a single calendar view or at least in a view that shows frequency/child assignments. Oh, and if you have more than one child that you want to assign the same task on different days...yeah, software can’t handle that. What a total waste of my time. Save yourself the hassles and find another solution. I can not believe this has as high a rating on the App Store as it does?!?

  • Overall good so far - need some modifications Jan 6, 2019

    By Jamie xxxxxx
    It would be great if when we boost money to our kids account it would automatically split it into our desired ratio of 80% spend, 10% save and 10% tithe. Instead you have to manually do that and enter 3 separate transactions with explanations. When making a withdrawal it would be nice if you could see what is in all 3 accounts while choosing the amount. We were previously using kidsbank and I was very disappointed when that app was shut down. We have 5 kids so you can imagine that managing their money and chores is not easy. We are liking this app so far but modifying the features I mentioned would make this fantastic! Also it is a little glitchy when adding chores manually. If google can’t come up with a picture and you try to go back and edit, it wants to make you put in a deadline date instead of leaving it open ended so you have to delete the chore and re-enter it with a different name so that google can find a picture. For example, I entered straighten craft area and Game Center and all I could get was pictures of hair straighteners. I look forward to providing further feedback as we begin to use the app.

    Great app!! Very useful. It has really kept the kids on track with chores without al of the nagging from mom and dad!! They love being in control of their money and seeing how much they have in each category quickly. I would love if I could add chores for the parents to do as well (without having to add them as a kid).

  • Pretty good, with a few tweaks it’d be great May 6, 2020

    By KWA_007
    I really like this app, however there is some inconsistency in how to transfer money, specifically into the “goals” section. Within the save, spend, share sections, you can transfer easily, but to transfer money into the goals section, you can only do it from within that section and only from the “spend” category, which I don’t understand. I also get frustrated because the app doesn’t allow for working on landscape orientation, which is really frustrating when that’s how the keyboard is like for a tablet. Doesn’t work easily to have the app only in portrait mode and you keyboard is automatically set up for landscape, so when you’re typing on a keyboard (like adding notes about what money was for), the screen orientation doesn’t match. Small thing and you can use the keyboard on the screen or tilt your head, but its kind of annoying.

    Best chore and allowance app out there. It definitely needs some improvements as far as user ease of use. They've been given a lot of innovative ideas that could greatly improve their app to make it more user friendly. It's easy enough to do (other apps have the suggested options already in use). With that said, they are failing to improve and update the app. They need to incorporate user ideas more. They have a scripted response to user requests instead of honestly working on things.
