Is there an iPhone app that can be shared across multiple users/phones to manage kids' allowances?

I give my five year old an allowance. Mr. Cocoa and I have two problems: knowing if one or the other of us has paid him already, and keeping track of what he's spent. So sometimes both my husband and I accidentally pay him, sometimes neither of us does. Sometimes I'm out with him and he buys something, and later in the day he's with his dad and wants something else, but Dad doesn't know how much money Young Cocoa really has available.
Is there an app or other solution that would let both of us see that he's credited on a weekly basis and see, from each of our phones, purchases made real-time? Most of the apps I've seen (and two that I'm am playing with: Bank of Mom and KiddyBank) do everything I'd like except this aspect of supporting multiple actors on the same account. (FamilyMint seems to do it, but only the paid version which, at $5.00/month is a serious percentage of what we're paying in allowance. Once we bump him up to managing millions, I'd be happy to shell out for it.)
