AllowMe app review: manage your kids’ allowances



If you’re frequently having to break up augments over who gets what in your household then you might like to check out AllowMe - Allowance Assistant for iPhone and iPad so that you can more fairly and clearly distribute allowances between your kids.

I’ve seen a few apps following a similar premise to this one but I really like what the developer has done here and would definitely say it’s one of the better developments in the genre.

Be sure to download it to prevent future familial fiscal fights!

No More Fighting Over Allowances

What we’ve got here is a wonderful idea for an app which enables you to more easily and fairly manage allowances for your entire family, with the option to add an unlimited number of children so even the biggest of families are catered for!

One thing that I like about this app and something that I think sets it apart from some of the competition is that it allows you to distribute allowances thoroughly across Saving, Sharing, and Spending categories so that each of your children knows where their money is going (and so do you).

Keep Your Records Away from Prying Eyes

At any time you can view your children’s existing balances within AllowMe - Allowance Assistant, and there is also a field added that allows you to input the interest rates applied to any of their savings accounts so that you can predict how much growth they will see in subsequent years.

What’s more, you can create a handy backup copy of your records via email, as well as keeping your records safe and secure with passcode protection in case you’d rather your kids not look at the figures you’ve jotted down.
