Freefall Money is a fun educational app for kids to learn how to count money. The app supports practicing with either US or Euro coins.
Kids will keep coming back to this learning tool to fill their fish tank with new fish. The more time they spend learning about coins and the math of coins the more fish they will earn.
*** Freefall Money continues the #1 ranked Freefall series, including Freefall Spelling ***
*** Practice in US or Euro coins ***
Three modes of coin math practice:
1. Fill the piggy bank (Scatter Mode)
2. Enter the amount (Type Mode)
3. Add up groups of coins (Cluster Mode)
In the Scatter and Type Modes coins can be stacked on top of one another. Move coins around to be sure you haven't missed one.
*Sophisticated fish tank reward system
- Earn Fish
- Feed Fish
- Clean the tank

What's New in Version 1.2
Added new Coin screen to learn the coins.
I like this app. It will be good for my second grader. It took me a while to figure out what the different modes were in the settings. I had to play with it and then it made sense. I wish it were a little more intuitive. My only complaint is the spelling of the word nickel. It is spelled “nickle” in the app which may be a sometimes accepted spelling, but it is not the common spelling kids learn in school which could be a bit of a problem. I noticed someone else mentioned this in a review a year ago, and it is still the same.
Great Little App!
The money looks and sounds realistic. It's simple, and the kids love to play it. It's a little bit too easy to cheat on the part with the 4 piles if money (they don't count it, they just keep dragging in to an amount until they find the right one), but that's really my only complaint.
Coins look real!!!
I can count the number of times I've tried counting coins on worksheets or with manipulatives with my students but they can't tell which coin is which! These coins look real. I use this app with my students and my own son. They all love it!!
