Best Windows 8 Apps
19 June 2015
I've tried several times on different devices and wont let me register. Every time it tells me network connection is a problem. I know for a fact it is not and a total and complete problem with the program and not a user error as my husband is a software developer and says the same thing...If I could I would of given a big 0

We would love this app... it has cool features. but every time I try to add my second son, a window keeps popping up saying I'm having a connection problem. No. I'm not! It took us forever to figure out why my first son's chores were "waiting" to be approved, then he was disappointed by losing at his spins. (which I get... life throws you disappointment, but couldn't he have at least won once?) I understand it takes time to figure out new apps, but not being able to add my second son is enough for me to not use this anymore.

this app is not good
23 January 2015
Keep getting an error every time a try to log on. Says it "can't detect a connection". No other program I'm using is having trouble with the internet. Couldn't even use the app!

When I add a chore with no due date, it shows up as the line of text "ChoreMonster.Business.Entities.Chore". If I add a due date, it shows up correctly. but it would really be great to be able to use chores without due dates. Change this, and I will give it more stars.

It is not fun

I was really excited for this app. I just got a new laptop with windows 8.1 and the chores I set up online don't show up when my daughter goes in to the app version on the laptop. They show up as a line of text...not as a picture. I went to the online kids log in and they show up fine there.

Gamifying chores - why didn't I think of that - great app!

Needs cleaned up and I would definitely give a higher rating. My biggest problem with this app is the chore selection is object code instead of the pictures of the actual job, (meaning it does not work). Unfortunately it works best on the website. I also would give a higher rating if it were available on the android.

My children dragged their daily chores even if I rewarded them daily. However, the minute I presented them ChoreMonster they began scrambling to complete them. I'm thankful this was created :D

the app should allow you to put 5 primary chores and then at least 5 more once a week type of chores; such as helping to wash the car, helping to cook dinner, vacuuming, or any other "not as often repeated" chore. I think that would help a lot! And it would be nice if there was a notice that you can only have 5 chores up, instead of finishing a list and then seeing that it is only going to post a selected five.

Seems like a great idea, but was unable to login after downloading the app. I have since deleted it. Boo.

my 6 and 8 year old don't like doing there chores but finally they do when you give them money with chore monster.

I loved this app, even though they want to charge $50 a year for the full version of it (robbery). They gave me a free month of monsters & carnival & of course my kids got hooked on it. We decided to let them earn the full app as a reward for chores. But then as my trial month came to an end, it kept throwing error messages, bugging out, shutting down & making it impossible to check off their chores. They've gone to bed more than a little disappointed the last few nights. I can't imagine sinking that much money into an app that can't function properly. As much as we did love Monsters, I'm looking else ware.

Great way to get your kids involved in doing chores around the house. Kids get rewards, new monsters, and surprises.

This was really helpful to use around the house with my brother and sister.

needs an app for parents so that they can approve/decline their chores without going on the website everytime

Really nice app but has some rough edges. There is an issue with spinning the wheel where multiple touches can be detected at once. Make sure to disable the touch input after the first touch is detected and the wheel is spinning. My kids has lost tickets because they were too eager and pressed multiple times. The app should pool the status updates so there is no need to go back and forth the tabs.

Logged in on the site, changed password just to be sure... still a no go on he app. I'd love to love it and rate it accordingly but as of now it's useless to me.

For the parents with questions of log in from App, it's for the kids not you. I think this will be great as long as they stay excited about it.
The app currently only lets kids login. Parents cannot login using the windows store app.
It will be nice feature to add soon (neutral rating till then). Otherwise a very useful app for parents and kids.
I like the idea of the app but I can't get logged in, even after creating an account online. It seems the app is unable to authenticate with their servers. I hope they can fix it soon.
And I LOVE the tile design -- designers who really get it. I love it!
I have 2 young children, one Surface Tablet and one app. Each child needs to log in, update their finished chores and then log out for next child to do same. It's not a real pain but it would be easier if app has child selector like the webpage. Also, app should allow for parents to log on and approved finished chores. Seems odd to have to go to webpage and approve all..

I have surface tablet and my kids don't use this they have an iphone. So in short add ability for parents to log in through windows app and would be a five star rating. Love the idea but kids have the toys(iphone, iPod) parents have the computers typically. Also bring this to windows phone, android, and blackberry 10 please.
