The Chore Score app is a fun way to incentivize kids to do their chores. With their parents, kids can set up a chore list, track their progress and earn rewards for doing their chores. Parents verify progress as kids mark them off. Rewards can be redeemed easily within the app either online or in-store.
“We went to the Sears Dev Challenge with a desire to build something great for Sears to use. After hearing from the Sears team on Friday evening, we came up with the app idea on Saturday morning. Our small team was then able to execute on this idea in under 36 hours. Building mobile apps quickly is what we do and I’m glad we were able to do it for a great brand like Sears.”
