Hello to all our Osperteers,
This release sees a few minor updates:
- Quick-login: Due to our Emoji Keyboard's popularity, it's now the default choice.
- Rating the app: Selecting "Rate Osper" in the settings now brings you to the correct app-version.

Ratings and Reviews
Right so bare in mind this is coming from a 14 year old so I might not have the best spelling in the world. Osper are great! There app is easy to use it works. You can set allowance for you child and it will be paid whenever you set it to for example monthly. They have a feature that allows you to save up for certain items so it teaches your child the concept of saving they also have spending tags so when your child buys something they will choose a tag for example “food and drink” and they can see what there buying the most. I’ve also personally found that there locking system is great I recently lost my card and with a normal credit card if you lose it your pretty much stuck. But with Osper you can lock your card from your phone witch is a great relief when you know your card is out in the world somewhere. So all in all 10/10 it’s great! Thx osper!
This app is a life-saver!
From the start, let me just say that this is coming from an 12 year-old, and not a parent, for those of you wondering.
I’ve been using this app for months now, and countless times have I had to use this app. It’s a great way to get people’s children to be aware of how much things really cost, and teaches them the responsibility of being cautious about how much they spend.
The allowance option on the app is a great addition, the ‘Savings’ option I love, mainly because it stops you spending money on pointless things when you’re trying to reach a certain target, and the ‘send money’ system is actually really nice, and allows you to send nice messages with the money sent.
However, I have one request, and that is for people to be allowed to send amounts under £1.00
THE BEST THING IN THE WORLD
Osper is the best thing in the world. You can have a password made of emojis and you can creat savings. You can also send money to you parents if you left your card at home and they bought it for you. You pin is always easy to remember and hard to forget but it is still complex so it wont be stolen or hacked. It can be supported by parents. You can label your spending to see what you should stop buying and IT IS JUST THE GREATEST THING IN THE WORLD. even though I am at the age I could get a normal bank account I am going to continue with this one because I love it so much. It really helps your child with independents and helps them learn.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
