Description

KidsBank-Lite is the free version of KidsBank with limited features. KidBank tracks kids’ money, allowance, charity, and jobs, and pays interest for saving. KidsBank teaches children the value of saving and responsible spending, by doing. Keep track of your children's money, empower them to do simple jobs for extra money, and track their spending in this virtual bank account app. KidsBank is a great way to track birthday money, allowance, and spending. A simple, clean user interface provides a fun and easy money management tool. Take the app shopping, and when your child asks, “Can I buy that?”, you can offer them the opportunity to make a decision to buy with their own money. Check balances on the Apple Watch. Easily and quickly record the transaction in KidsBank. When children spend their own money, it is amazing how responsible they become in making good choices. Add special vacation spending money to their account and track their souvenir spending. Children learn to take pride in their work and complete simple recurring jobs beyond the chores you expect them to do as a family member. Reward them for doing age appropriate jobs of your choice such as cutting the grass, doing the dishes, or taking out the trash. Print a KidsBank Fridge Sheet and post it on the refrigerator and your children can check off completed jobs and record deposits and withdrawals. FEATURES • create an account for each child • virtual spending and savings accounts • save for charity • credits interest each Sunday • automatically credits weekly allowance • track deposits and withdrawals • create jobs and reward kids for their work • transaction history • email and print Fridge Sheet or Account Statement • View account balances on Apple Watch BENEFITS • rewards saving • encourages development of a good work ethic • teaches the importance of compound interest • empowers kids • easy tool for parents on the go • fun and easy to use • automatically syncs data across multiple devices in the same iCloud account (Family sharing is not supported for sync).

    This app is great, except when last week it suddenly lost everything I had input over the past 6 months or so. All the job descriptions I had added- gone. All the kids money tracked - gone. I...can't...even...
  • Allowance glitchy

    Allowance distribution is glitchy. Frequent duplicates. Gotta watch it carefully.
  • Upgrade doesn’t seem to be working.

    I paid to upgrade to the full version via an in app purchase, but do not see any additional features and the name of my app is still “Lite”. Please help.

    I’ve been using this app for months and it has been perfect for keeping track of my kids chore money. However today I went to use it and everything has been reset to zero! Kids names are gone. Chores are gone. Bank and all transactions gone. What happened?!!
  • Good app, great tech support

    Longtime user of the app and it has made tracking allowance and Birthday money, etc so much easier. Opened up a blank app this morning thinking that I lost all data but IT answered my email same day and knew exactly how to fix the problem!
  • No parent password & no linked accounts = no go

    I have been looking for a good kid allowance / banking program. This program, and a similarly named program (KidBank and KidsBank) each have almost the opposite pros and cons. The downsides of this program are complete "no go"s for me, whereas the other one is viable but not great. So I will keep using it. WHAT I LIKE about this app - unlike most (all?) of its competition, it allows you to set an interest rate for savings. (Yay! This inspires kids to save, so is GREAT!) - this app allows you to set savings / spending / charity percentages for each deposit, and change it as needed (yay! Good for inspiring positive shaving/giving behavior!) - it lets you add notes about what each deposit, transfer, and withdrawal is for (essential for checking for mistakes + for kids to see the inflow/outflow of cash and reasons for it). - Intuitive interface - No ads, even on free version ( at least I didn't notice any) CONS to this app: # 1) I *think* the interest only gets added to savings, and not to charity. If so, that needs a fix, stat, as it paradoxically discourages charitable savings. A small, but important, detail. #2) Without a parent password for this app, this app is not viable for me. Kids should NOT be able to transfer money and add department sits to their accounts anytime they are using mom or dad's phone. While they probably wouldn't try (?), I don't want to have to keep tabs on it. A password would eliminate that problem. There should be password controlled parent accounts, with a separate password controlled kid interface so they can check balances. #3) this is useless, in my view, unless BOTH mom and dad can access the parent account on our own phones. And it fails to motivate kids if they can't also check amounts (without access to deposit, withdrawal, and transfer functions) on their own phones. ******* It is so close, and clever in many ways! Yet still not viable for most families, unfortunately. I hope it is improved (esp. parent vs kid interface with passwords, and multiple device updating) because I still need a good banking program for my kids!
  • Want to love it

    This has everything I was looking for including automatically calculating charity giving EXCEPT no sync! Unfortunately it was a deal breaker for me because we need something that both daughter and I can have on our devises.
  • This App makes allowance & extra chores SO easy!

    No longer can my kids convince me I have Alzheimer's regarding the balances in their allowance! This app has every transaction in black and white!!! I love it!!! I do wish there was a "fines" section that could be set up in advance like the jobs section, but the ATM is doable for those. Great job app creators!
  • Great app

    I researched and tested a few different allowance apps and this is hands down the best one. We don't use cash very much and I was getting frustrated with the "I owe you/you owe me" game that was impossible to keep track of. This ap reflects how we use money in the real world- having a virtual bank account on my phone for my daughters money has been a game changer- allowance is automatically "deposited" into her account, and because my 9 year old now has her own money she is much more thoughtful about how she spends it. I no longer have to say "no" every time she asks for something- I simply direct her to her account, pay for the purchases she decides she wants, and then have her make a withdrawal from her ATM, with a note about what she purchased. I agree with others that it would be amazing to be able to share across devices, but I won't knock a star for it. What it does, it does well, And I am very happy with it!!
