You Rule Chores app review: take control of household chores

Reviews

Introduction

A common problem with most parents is trying to get kids to help out around the house and do their chores. The You Rule Chores app can be used on your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone as a way to take control of the chores in your household and really promote productivity. This is meant to be a user-friendly way to manage the chores in your household in a way that makes it easy to follow for the whole family. The app has actually been designed to feel like a game so suddenly completely your chores become a fun thing.

Motivate the Whole Family

Instead of feeling like you need to keep reminding the kids over and over again to do their chores, why not take an interactive and engaging approach so that everyone can get on-board? While there is no guarantee the You Rule Chores app will work miracles for you, there’s a good chance it will at least improve the situation and transform the fighting that can go along with chores into a fun family topic instead. The app has a flexible user interface that has features that feel more like a game. Kids will want to race through their chores and then be ready to take on more. Once you are able to set up a stable routine, suddenly the whole process becomes smoother.

In the app's most recent update there were enhancements made to the app so that it appears better on the iPhone and when using iOS 7. The app currently has four out of five stars from users who have plenty of complimentary words for it.

Setting it Up and Using the App

When it comes to getting the You Rule Chores app all set up and ready to use parents will have no problem at all customizing it to their needs. One downfall that we need to point out right away is that the app doesn't support multi-device syncing so make sure you install it on the device that is around the entire family the most. Each of your children will have his or her own game character in the app so that it's clear who is doing what. When a chore is completed that child will be able to earn new gadgets, powers, and even level-up just as you would in a game. Chores earn coins and it's these coins that will determine what they can get off their wish list. There is also a side-game going on here which is the fact the first person who finishes their chores in the week wins the race.
