Earn, Save, Spend and Invest Allowance
** Kids have earned millions in allowance, completed millions of chores and invested hundreds of thousands.
BusyKid is the ultimate app that will help your kids learn how to manage money by simply doing chores around the house. This is the first and only chore app that allows a child to earn allowance and decide how to save, share, spend and invest it. Think of it as the first job your child will have with direct deposit!
Ideal for kids 6-16, BusyKid will help build sound money routines in saving, spending and investing in stocks. Within minutes your child can be earning money and taking care of responsibilities, instead of just sitting around watching TV, texting or playing video games.
Chore Calendar—Similar to all mobile calendars, the Chore Calendar allows parents to set daily, weekly, and monthly chores, schedule any task on a future date, or arrange for chores to repeat.
Parent Dashboard—One place where a parent can see what ALL the children are doing, earning, and spending. See the entire family or a single child with a single touch.
Child Dashboard—The weekly allowance and balance of a BusyKid Spend Card are prominently centered at the top of the dashboard, but the page also includes the options to save/invest, share or spend any funds in the account.
Activity Stream—Included in both the parent and child menus, the color-coded activity stream displays all the account activity for each day, as well as any money moved or spent by a child.
Push Notifications—BusyKid uses push notifications to alert parents to specific activity and approval for weekly payday.
