This local family is making life a little easier thanks to a little creativity and a smart phone.
Binary Formations, a husband and wife team with over 35 years of combined experience in the software industry, create apps that start with a personal need of their own family.
Their newest app, Chore-inator helps and motivates kids to do chores around the house (yes, there’s an app for that).
Chore-inator is an easy to use tool that gets kids engaged and motivated to help out around the house. By checking off chores, children earn stars that they can redeem for rewards. After completing a chore, your child will have the opportunity to take a ‘proof’ photo of their handiwork. Use the parent mode overview to see which chores have been completed (and those that haven’t) and approve reward claims and allowance payouts.
