  • BEST allowance / kids finances app!!! Sep 10, 2019

    By NotfromChicago
    I spent way too much time researching all the options to help our kids keep track of their money and this one is definitely the best! If all you want to do is keep track of how much money they have in their “virtual accounts” (this functionality alone is super helpful - especially when you have 4 kids!!) then you can you the app for free, but what sets this app above the crowd is the allowance and “extra jobs” chore functionalities, which require a very modest subscription fee for that service - it’s is totally worth it!! The app has been soooo helpful in helping our family of 6 w 4 kids keep track of our money. No more complaining from kids accusing their siblings of stealing their cash or just thinking they had more and not knowing what they did with it - the app makes it so easy to keep track of all deposits and withdraws from their money!! When they get a check from grandma - stick it in their RoosterMoney acct! They do jobs to help out or you want to give them any number of customizable rewards - you are all set! They can log in to their own accts and claim their jobs and move money from spend to save (where they can earn interest) etc. It has really encouraged the kids to think more about how much they have for things they want and makes it so much more straightforward to answer at the store when they say they want anything - “well, do you have enough in RM?”

    A fantastic app to introduce children to money management. So frustrating that so few banks allow accounts for very young children. My 6 yo is more than ready to take more responsibility with his money and this app fills that need perfectly. Will definitely be looking at paying for the card option when he is older.

  • 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!

    A brilliant app for tracking the kids pocket money. Rather than having to physically give them the cash, it is recorded through the app. Then when we visit the shops they know exactly how much they have to spend and I can adjust in the app. Has saved so many arguments with my eldest!

    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. ☺️

    Looks like it could be a good app, but this is ONLY for use by people located in the UK. Maybe put that in the description so a zillion people from other countries don't waste time downloading and configuring this thing.

  • 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?!?

    Absolutely love this app! The only reason I'm not giving 5 stars is that there's no way to track what things have been ignored from one week to the next without going back to that prior week or weeks. Please add week over week tracking so I can see the trend.

  • 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.

    Some difficulties in syncing my bank account to the app, choose your search engine carefully...and VPN...but apart from that it worked well. Asking other people to join was easy peasy. There is a 24 hour reply line that also works pretty well. Some issues you just have to work through yourself though....

  • 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.

    I'm liking this app so far, one thing is that the app doesn't let me change the weekly spending limit that's the only problem I have with the app but it's still good!
