Use a free Dropbox account to sync your data between all of your Chore Pad installations. Syncing happens automatically whenever you open or close Chore Pad, so keeping up to date with changes is effortless.
ENGAGING USER CARDS
Each child has their own card showing their star and checkmark totals under their portrait. Tap a child's card to show their Chore Chart, where chores are completed to earn stars. Give out bonus stars to acknowledge a job well done or penalty stars to show more effort may be needed. Flip cards over to show stats for today, this week, last week or two weeks ago.
SECURE PARENT MODE
Parent Mode keeps Chore Pad kid-friendly by tucking the important setup features safely away. Use Parent Mode to configure users, chores, rewards, syncing, passcode protection and more!
Your child earns stars as chores are completed, and uses those stars to redeem rewards that you've created! Watch happily as your child learns to save up their stars for long-term goals!
Completing chores unlocks trophies over time, which are displayed on each child's card and in their Chore Chart. A trophy shelf for each child displays their earned trophies!
Each child can select their own theme for their Chore Chart, with nine currently available and more to come!
Create template chores that can be copied to any number of children and customized individually for each. Specify a wide range of repeat intervals, star values and select from dozens of available chore icons.
