Choremonster - A chore tracking and rewards app for kids



I tried this one out yesterday with the guys.  Choremonster is an app/website service that helps encourage kids to do chores in return for rewards.  You determine which chores you want to set and how many points should be awarded on successful completion.  There's a parent interface and child interface in the same app and push notifications are sent to the kids when new chores are assigned and when they're completed, a push notification goes back to the parent pointing out that there are chores awaiting review and approval. 

You set the point value of the chore and then determine the point value for various rewards which the child can redeem their points for.  

It's a fun little app and nicely put together. It worked great with my daghter this morning with a few basic things. We've got to sit down and work out together what chores need doing and what rewards they would like and determine the value of each.  It's only early stages, but I think it's going to be a fun way of getting the kids engaged in doing a few bits of housework here and there and most importantly, keeping the bedrooms tidy.

Works as a web service and there's an iPhone app available from the app store.  Check it out.
