[prMac.com] Durham, United Kingdom - Taking the paper-based child reward system to the digital age now enables parents, carers, grandparents, uncles, aunties ... in fact anyone, to recognise, award and encourage amazing behaviour within our families.
Leveraging mobile technology, 'Star'-worthy acts can be captured in an instant, awarded on the go and never forgotten.
The stars awarded contribute to the family's Star Jar and as soon as a Reward total is reached, they can be redeemed for the entire family to enjoy.
This evidence based rewarding also acts as a journal ... a journal that everyone can be proud of and the perfect excuse for a family fun reward.
"Pour to Sync" is a Fun and Enjoyable way of synchronizing these 'Star'-worthy acts across multiple devices. Harnessing over-the-air mobile Bluetooth technology, children around the World will love to pour their stars into the Star Jar.
Being able to sync' data across devices means stars can be awarded and shared by Parents, Carers, Grandparents, Uncles, Aunties, Teachers ... practically anyone in the support network.
