What Users Love About the App
“I started playing because I had trouble counting money. I was struggling with it, so we tried a book called the Big Second grade book. It was a good book, but it wasn’t helping so we went to the App Store on my phone and found this app. It looked like it was all about counting money so we tried it and it was amazing! It helped me a lot with counting money. My mom even likes it. It’s terrific!”
“I am 20 years old and I never got the support of learning how to count money in school. This app has helped me in so many ways of learning how to county money. My confidence was low until I found this app. So, I just want to say thank you for creating this app. I am better at counting money now.”
“I am 9 years old but I love this app. It is fun and exciting, and I learn how to count money. The coins are very realistic. Have a great day. I think you should download it if you haven’t yet.”
“I just started playing. I could play this all day; it is so easy, and this is coming from a 9-year-old about to go into fourth grade. I love this game.”
“I just turned 21 this past Thursday. I am in love with this money app because I always have trouble counting money.”
What Users Dislike About the App
“It would be helpful if the total amount of money counted was displayed on the screen/changed as coins are added/removed. It should be a feature that toggles on and off.”
“They could add names to the pictures as you touch them so kids can hear the name of what they’re choosing.”
“I wish there were 50 cent pieces and dollars included. Overall, it has been helpful teaching my first grader to count money.”
“It gives very limited amounts. My kids already memorized what to give for the ten or so problems it presented.”
“It works for my child. Although, he has only used dimes and pennies to get the answer. Maybe you can show some coins and the child chooses from that pile for unique ways to come up with the amount instead of only using the dimes and pennies.”
“I have a student using it and it is very difficult for them. I guess we need to go back to the very basics.”
