Description

The RoosterMoney Allowance & Chores Tracker for parents and children helps families manage allowances, chores and rewards and teaches children the value of money. Available in any currency. RoosterMoney Allowance & Chores Tracker gets allowance sorted. It transforms the way you give pocket money and your child's allowance, by making it simple for parents and fun for kids. Parents remain the Bank of Mom and Dad and no deposits are required to start using RoosterMoney. For those parents who need extra features like a more advanced chore tracker, adding extra family members, or even setting interest rates, there’s the option to upgrade to RoosterPLUS. Parents sign up to record the pocket money comings and goings for their children. Each child has an account too and can check their statement and savings, create saving goals and choose what they want to save for. Key Features for Parents: - Set up a pocket money routine for your kids; issuing allowances automatically each week or on an ad hoc basis in your preferred currency (£, $, € and more). - If your children aren't ready for real money, you can also award stars, we act as an online Reward Chart or Star Chart! - View current balances and statements, so you can track kids money. - Boost extra money for jobs, achievements or gifts. - Remove money from the app and hand it to your kids so they can spend it at the shops. - Take pictures of things at the shops and set these as savings targets for your kids to save up for. - Lock their allowance in an instant - A great way for teaching children money. Key Features for Kids: - Take control of your allowance. - Know how much money you have and how it has been saved and spent by checking your statement. - Create goals to save for, and you can upload your own photos! - Save money to add to a Savings Account using our Safe function. - Customise your Dashboard theme and make your account your own. - Get a head-start learning about money! What is RoosterMoney? Our mission is a simple one. We provide easy and engaging tools that help parents to raise money-wise kids. We set out to sort a specific problem: Allowances are a great idea in principle. But finding a system that works for your family is hard, particularly when you’re juggling the weekly shop, work emails and soccer practice. And everything else for that matter. We believe in the power of allowances to transform children’s understandings of money – whether you give them 20¢ a week or $10. And we think these lessons are best learned by keeping things simple for parents and fun for kids. Importantly we think the best things are learned together. What Parents think: “Pocket money issues used to stress me out no end and now it is all just FUN! I tried so many times writing things in cash books & various money boxes but nothing really worked until I found RoosterMoney.” Annabel, mom of 3. “Perfect for parents like me who do not deal in cash.” Wendy, mom of 1. “They used to receive ad-hoc amounts from friends and family and store it all over the place. Now they know exactly how much they have and how long they've been saving for.” Lucinda, mom of 3.

  • Great App

    By Mcpmom
    Thus app is easy to use and I like that you can set a percentage of allowance - teaches kids you get paid for what you do. Also like you can take away some at a time - my child wanted something from store - cost her 1.50 of her rooster money - she got to choose to spend money and see her balance go down. My other child choose to save it. Good lessons learned.
  • has promise but flawed

    By Doodaddy
    This app shows some promise, but doesn't understand how kids chores actually work. You can't create a chore, for example, to "put your laundry away today" -- you'd have to say "every Wednesday" or "once, with no due date." So -- it's not yet flexible enough for real life use. Still, the developers are semi-responsive, so maybe this will turn into something usable eventually.
  • Great app for families

    Great keeping track of money for the kids. Kids loved it
  • Overall good so far - need some modifications

    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.
  • Looking good so far

    By juliaea_011
    Though I do not use this for allowances it seems to be great. I wanted an app where I could track savings without it actually taking money out of my account. It has a bar and percentage so I can visualize just how far I have to go. I can create goals, which is exactly what I wanted, and I can add to the give section so I know exactly how much to tithe each week! I can break down my paycheck each week instead of just putting it in my account. So far it’s great. I haven’t had it long so hopefully it keeps working good. Though I’m using it for something different than its original design, I’m really liking it!

    This has made allowance so much easier. So practical.

    Everyone loves this app. And it makes chores and allowance so easy! I want to give a better review, but I want time to really explain why this app is so awesome. Thanks Roaster Money! I love how it engages my children, and the entire family. And it’s not always about the $$. We use the star/point system, we call them Truempernickles (the e is silent). We are able to teach budgeting while keeping it flexible for kids of different ages. A+, now just include a debit card option. Then we don’t have to use two apps!
  • Very easy to use

    Dealing with allowance and kids’ money has been a challenge for us, but this has been an easy, low maintenance tool.
  • Perfect money management tool

    By Yelnad
    My kids are 9 & 11 and this is the perfect free tool. The only paid piece I might consider is interest, but other than that the free version does everything we need.
  • Great App!

    Great app that the kids love and encourages great use of allowance between saving spending and charity , our 8 year old loved it
  • One flaw upon set up

    4
    By HJC Jedigirl
    As I’m assigning chores to my kids I’m trying to alter days of the week for certain chores so one unloading the dishwasher on the same day the other is loading or having different laundry days so there’s no fighting over the machines. However, there’s no complete chore summary dashboard where I can easily view everything that’s been assigned thus far to each kid. I’m having to toggle back and forth through multiple screens to see what I’ve assigned. It’s making set up take longer than it should. This is with the Plus version. Again, this is only a set up gripe. Haven’t begun using this with the kids yet. All other set up features are simple and pretty straightforward.
  • Great Tool

    By One Hot Maven
    Great App solves so many problems in our household. I gave it 4 stars because I only have the free version, so there are lots of features that I haven’t used. I like everything I’ve used so far and think it’s worth trying.
  • A private bank for your family

    5
    By BuckeyeMomOfThree
    I love this app. There’s no more running to the bank to pay for chores or withdrawing. The memos are proof of payment- absolutely necessary for that fifteen year old who questions whether he got paid and forgets what he bought. Perfect app to create a personal family bank.
  • Perfect for what I wanted

    By SandraNicoleG
    This is an easy way for me to track my kids earned allowance without having to keep cash on hand all of the time. They like that they can see their “banks” when they want.
  • Best chore/ allowance app out there

    Keeps track of kids allowance and spending , 3 of us share it. Love!
  • Superb Allowance Account Management

    An excellent way for the tech savvy family to hold everyone accountable for chores and allowance intake and to encourage excellent money management! Streamlined and improving on a regular basis! A great support team and awesome financial goal availability.

    This is a great way to encourage independence in your child to keep track of chores and allowance. It is very user friendly and easy to set up and manage.

    In a world where one simply may not have cash to give allowance each week- this is a we’ll done app allowing you to teach your kids how to divide and track their money;)
  • Outstanding finance app for parents and their kids

    By Drcomp
    5 stars! Absolutely love the free version and it is well worth the small payment for the enhanced features on the subscription. I started a search for an easy way to keep a virtual piggy bank for my daughter but ended up finding a great finance app. RM teaches her about charitable giving (with automated donation feature), general saving (with interest!), odd jobs around the house for extra cash, and saving for goals. Highly recommend RoosterMoney.
  • Great App

    By EJ Wheel
    This app has helped our family keep track of allowance and spending so much better that our traditional allowance method. The kids have the app on their iPods so they can see what chores need to be done each day and how much money they have to spend.
  • Easy money manager!

    By kev2bec
    Rooster Money is intuitive and has everything we need to keep track of spending, saving, and giving.
  • Super nice app to manage the kids money

    By asgd djdndd
    This app has been great for allowing me and the wife to manage the kids money balances. Highly recommended if you’re needing something to keep track of your kids money in and money out.
  • Great interface, needs some features

    4
    By Laurasuzy
    We have just started using this app with our family and we love the look of it. However, already we have found that we wish it had some features that we need: the ability for siblings to give/transfer money from one account to the other (sibling boost); and the ability to automatically save a predetermined percentage of any deposit; the ability to simply delete a transaction added in error, rather than removing a boost.
  • A good teaching app

    5
    By salmon wisperer
    This app was exactly what we were looking for. We are trying to teach our kids how to manage money and that “mom and dad are not made of it”. Our kids are 11 and after three weeks of using Rooster we have overcome arguments in the store about things they want because if they don’t have the money, they can’t afford it! We are also learning about giving and saving. Roster is a good tool for parents and very easy for both parents and kids to interact with.
  • Allowance is a breeze

    5
    By Kalynp
    I love this app. We just started doing allowance as I never had cash on me for my 4 kids. Now they get their allowance, are charged money to use the computer and when we go to the store, I just subtract out their money from their account. It also lets you set an automatic dispersal of funds into giving, saving and spending! We live this app!
  • Great tool

    By Paujs
    I’ve been using it for the kids and we all love it. It makes it easer to keep track of their money and they are learning how to spend it and how to save!
  • Great for Allowance Tracking

    5
    By CarolineSLewis
    I never have cash so Rooster Money allows us to track allowance and not constantly issue IOUs. The interface is great and simple for my children to understand what they are earning and saving and helps them plan for purchases. Love it!
  • Best chore and allowance app

    5
    By rgilmer26
    This is the best chore and allowance app I have found. My kids are taking responsibility not only for doing their chores but for checking them off on the app as well. I love helping them manage their money in different pots and when we go to the store there is no more “I left my money at home”. I always know Exactly how much they have in their Rooster bank and I can easily subtract money when they want to buy something. This app is amazing.
  • Handy

    By Bemorva
    Very easy to keep track of how much money the kids have, and to put money into it when they do an extra job. Helpful to keep track of special toys they are saving up for, and setting aside money for charitable giving.
  • Chores for screen time...?

    By bdow718
    Not all chores are done for money. I’d like a way to log minutes/hours earned for extra screen time.
  • So far... I love it!

    By EKGmom
    I love this app... so far!! My 10 and 12 year old do also! Finally, something we can stick to and everyone is accountable! I’m amazed at how things are actually getting done! We are also a split family so this works SOO well with both parents on board in each of our houses!! You asked for suggestions... (Thru the app and I lost the area for suggestions ... so I’ll do it here.) - perhaps age related chores to choose from as opposed to just chores - (more extensive/creative pre-list) - kids can create a chore on their device and ask a parent if can be added to their list (gets them involved!) - educate the KIDS on saving, interest etc. - fun short videos they can LEARN from - show examples of interest and how it works - multiple goals? (Maybe thats already an option I forgot ... and I’m only a week into it) ... if they want to save for multiple items - kids might get a kick out of sounds for different actions - I agree on just a one time fee!!!!!! .... I probably could go on - only cause I love this idea and want to improve on the great app you already have going. I decided I would give this a two week trial (I’m a PLUS customer) and if I’m still as happy as I am ... I will be blasting this out to all my friends, acquaintances and FB groups (which may include a “few” Mom groups)!
  • 5 stars from our family!

    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 had been looking for a digital way to manage chore money for my daughters who are 8 and 9. This app is great. It’s intuitive, flexible and works well.
  • Can’t go negative...

    3
    By MatthewisMathis
    I like the app overall, but it really needs to allow the kids money to go into the negative. I need to be able to know when they go negative so that they can do chores to zero out. This teaches them the pain of going into debt and allows me to remember when they do so.
  • Yippee! No more hassle!

    This is just what I needed to track my kids allowance. So happy to find this app!

    I have 4 kids and keeping up with their money is a challenge. They never have their money with them when they see something they want to buy, nor do I want them walking around with a $100 they got from grandma for their birthday. With this I can keep their money in my bank account and use this app to keep track of their balance. So glad I discovered this useful app!
  • Wonderful

    I love this app and so do my kids. It keeps them engaged and eager to earn that next allowance. It’s also creating good financial habits.
  • Exactly what I needed

    5
    By 3centss
    This app is exactly what my daughter and I were looking for. We each have access from our phones and it is so easy to add and withdraw money so that keeping track of her spending and allowance tally is simple. Thanks for not asking to access my bank account and letting me make my own parenting choices- other apps tied allowance to chores and wanted bank access.
  • Makes allowance tracking easy!

    By Lorettachavez. C cc
    I use this for my 10 year old. I can track his spending at a detailed level and give him assignments to earn more money. The statements make it easy to pull up what he spent money on. I'll add my other son when he gets older.
  • Not ready for prime time

    By JeffN1998
    Allowance works for one child, but not the other two. Also, child can’t have a negative balance- should be able to do that. Also, all the circles give,save, goal, spend - not only is the nomenclature hard to follow, it should be like a check book with balance, credit and debit. I’m switching.
  • Great money saving teaching tool!

    By Echevca
    My kids are finally understanding the value of earning money and spending/saving money wisely. The app is easy to use and I love that the kids can see their savings/spends on their own devices.
  • Ugh, monthly fees, though I love the app

    4
    By Radicldreamer
    Not a chance I would subscribe. If it were a one time fee of $5-10 I would be all aboard, no way I’m paying a recurring fee for the app. With that out of the way it does make it easy to manage your children’s allowance. The interface is fairly intuitive though it could use some polish here and there, overall it’s nice. The performance is fine and the invitation feature with a second parent and the ability to send an invite to a child or other adult is really slick. Overall, dump the subscriptions and just allow me to buy it one time. This isn’t the type of app that people are going to pay recurring fees for, it’s just not THAT valuable.
  • Solves the problem for us!

    Did we give the kids their allowance this week? Did Mom? Did Dad? Do we owe them from last week? 2 weeks ago? While we were on vacation? Did we forget to give them allowance on vacation? But didn’t we cover it by giving them extra spending money on vacation? What about that money grandma sent that we held onto because they didn’t have pockets/wallet? How much money do you have in the bank? In your piggy bank, at home? How much do we owe you for doing that chore? Didn’t we pay you already? What about our last trip to the grocery store where you said you would buy that sugary cereal with your own money and pay us back when we got home? Did you pay us back yet? You did? I don’t remember, was it Dad or Mom you paid back? We never have to worry about any of these questions, ever again! RoosterMoney makes it simple to track a weekly allowance amount going into our kids accounts, we never forget and we can check from anywhere (and the kids can check from their mobile devices, too)! We can instantly deduct from their available balance if they want to get anything at the store while we’re out - no more questioning or forgetting to account for things. Bonus? RoosterMoney reflects exactly how electronic paychecks and banking work for adults in the real world and we’re training our kids (unbeknownst to them) on how to be adults with bank accounts long before they are old enough in the bank’s eyes to be issued a debit card.

    I saw all the great reviews for this app and thought : this will be a good app for chores and allowance! Turns out I was way wrong you can’t actually set chores without paying for roosterplus and the app makes no sense! Pretty annoyed with it😑😑😑
