Monsta Points Reward System by Adapkit Ltd is a task and reward tracker that parents can customize for each of their children. Enter any variety of tasks, the amount of times or days that the task needs to be completed, and the reward to be earned. Then simply tap to keep track of what the kids do. It's very reminiscent of a sticker chart - only interactive.
Begin by customizing each of your children's avatars and creating a personalized look and background. From there, enter parent mode (by simply tapping the lock and confirming you wish to enter) to begin adding tasks. There are five categories: Common, Garden (Yardwork), Home Help, Older Kids, and Younger Kids. If you can't find what you are looking for, simply type in your own tasks. After selecting a task, tap the little one eyed monsters to indicate how many times the task should be completed, or switch to weekday mode to select what days the task should be done.
After adding however many tasks you desire, begin adding rewards. Tap the heart plus button to add from the: Big Reward List, Child's Wishes (type in personal rewards), or select from a variety of categories each featuring apps to purchase from that category (maths, furry frendzy, get creative, toy box, reading, learn English, or train your brain). You can select settings like educational only, no ads or in-app purchases, etc.) on the settings menu. The app features a wide variety of apps available from the app store, most are paid apps. Tap the glasses to view a quick review and rating of each of the apps. Tap and hold rewards to move them to the appropriate task. When kids complete something, they simply tap the one eyed monster to show they've done it. Parents must double tap the monster to confirm the task.
The more I toyed with this app, the more I liked it. At first I wondered why we don't just stick with the basic sticker chart. But my love of technology won. This app is a great way for parents and kids to utilize today's tools to benefit their families. The fully customizable aspects of this app make it perfect for any family. The ease of adjusting the tasks and rewards was really simple. I liked sitting down with my son and talking about what jobs he should do. We started with just three: picking up pinecones, sleeping without his lovey, and staying in bed - the important things in life. He is eager to try out the reward tracker to earn the right to choose dinner.
Overall, Monsta Points Reward System is a really cool way for families to use digital tools to motivate kids to complete tasks. It's much more fun than sticking little shiny stars on sticker chart. The only thing I'd like to see is a password on the parental controls. I can see older kids getting a little cheeky when it comes to confirming if a task has been completed.
