Homey is a chore management app for the whole family. Homey synchronises task across devices and sends you updates and notifications about chores to do in your home to you and your family members. Homey organises tasks by taking pictures of the mess and assigning the work to individual family members. Homey gives all the members of your family a visual overview of things getting done in your home and a simple way to divide, track and finish off tasks. It’s simple enough for kids to understand and powerful enough to handle all of your chores.
Homey app is for families, who are dissatisfied with using paper charts and sticky notes on their fridge for organising and assigning chores and tracking their progress.
Although Homey works best when each of the family members has their own device (so that they can get reminders), you can also switch accounts easily. You can select another family member in the sidebar and tap “Switch account” in the lower right corner or you can simply long press the “Mark as done” button to complete a chore in someone else’s name.
Basic Homey functionality of chores, allowance and rewards management, along with smart notifications, is available completely for free for families that will use up to three accounts! Your family can connect as many devices as you’d like, so it makes no difference if each family member signs into their smartphone and additional tablets.
For $3.99 per month, or at a big discount at $29.99 annually if you pay for the whole year, you can add up to five family members in your Homey Premium household. You will also be able to add or deduct points and coins to encourage all around good behaviour. Additionally, you’re also able to connect your checking account to one of your child’s savings and safely and quickly transfer allowance and money rewards to your kids.
If you’d like to connect more bank accounts you can do that for just $6.99 a month or $49.99 per year with Homey Unlimited. Homey Unlimited will also allow you to fully customise which features are available to your kids. This means that you can add the functionality to add chores to your responsible 8-year old even if he’s not a teenager yet, or limit the functionality for your older kids if they get overwhelmed by too much information.
We also offer some in-app purchases that save time with the setup and are available only to household members with full control.
One password is your shared family password and the other one is your personal password. You only need a personal password if you have full control – kids can login with just the shared family password. However, they do need their personal password if they want to be in two separate households with the same email.
Yes. All the information you provide is kept securely and is not shared with anyone. Everything you share with your family members in Homey is available only to them. Users with full control can however share their achievements and progress on their social media from the app. This option is turned off by default for all users, except the one that created the household.
The currency displayed in Homey depends on the language settings of your device.
If you’re using an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch:
Go to Settings > General > Language & Region and tap Language.
