Did you Know - Graphs in Kidipoints update Automatically
Your Data is Hosted, and Kidipoints is a Web App, so will never go out of Date, even if you change your Computer or Device, you can always access your Kidipoints
Kidipoints for the Web is in Beta Testing, we are making Cool Enhancements Daily, we try to limit updates to the Server, to a few minutes
Kidipoints is a great way to teach your kids about tracking Finances(Debits/Credits) and that Effort(work) brings rewards
Please help us Beta Test and improve! suggestions- firstname.lastname@example.org
On Apple Devices, slider controls can be slow, this is a generic issue with HTML5 on Apple devices as a workaround until fixed, you ,can always click the amount on the Points to Allocate instead, till a better fix is put in place soon..
On Apple devices, the Google Docs help slideshow does not show, this is Google and Apple not playing nice together, as a workaround, the help text is shown as a PDF.
We regularly make enhancements, however, your Computer on Device Browser caches old versions of program code, which can cause strange things(bugs) to happen, don't fret, simply delete History and reset, log on and off to fix.
Bug Fixes, Software for Airplanes and Nuclear Power Stations should have hundreds of Testers, Kidipoints is a solo project, if something isn't right, let us know and we will strive to fix.
