APP ATTACK! Money Money Money

Today we are going to discuss 2 money apps. They are made by the same company. These are two money apps that I feel are worth downloading.

The first is Counting Money. The description from the website is an app designed to help people of all ages count money. There are two game play types. In practice mode the user must answer the question correctly in order to proceed to the next question.The user presses the check button after each attempt to check the answer. In quiz mode the user has an opportunity to answer the question correctly. There are two difficulty types, beginner and normal. You use four coin buttons to add to the tally.


  • Actual Currency. This is extremely important as children don’t often see parents model using cash and some does not handle money as often to get practice.
  • Data collection. The apps scores and grades the answers.
  • You can set it for visually or mentally tallied.
  • Sound can be turned off.
  • Has a timer 1, 2, 4, and 8 minutes
  • Set expectation 10, 20, 30 or 40 questions.

Things that I would like to see added even in a paid app.

  • A method for the student to send their teacher the data either email or capturing the screen.
  • A way to set up a class list so you can customize each student activity.
  • A way to change the background – solid colors.

The second app is My Money Counter. It is made by the same company that makes Counting Money. This app is a simple app that allows a user to count their own money. The user counts the number of coins and dollars they have in their wallet and the Alps calculated how much money they have in total. The user can then also subtract money spent. This app can be used when going grocery shopping with students or adults that need support handling money, making change and identifying how much money they should have left after their purchase. This can be used to work on word problems with students. The possibilities are endless.

What I would like to see:

  • This app made for the
  • itouch or iPhone so that it is portable for an individual to use in public.
  • Speech. Say how much money in total.
