Been looking for this one! ★★★★★
I've been waiting for this app for quite a while. Thank you for addressing this huge need in life skills programs. Love the way you have it set up.
What's New in Version 1.1
✓Expanded dollar amounts up to $50.
✓Choose to test at levels including $0-5, $5-10, $10-20, $20-50 or in any combination.
✓Includes setting option for ALT Currency with $1 coin.
✓60 new item cards.
✓Now iPhone/iPod touch compatible!
Finally an app developer that gets the importance of functional understanding with money! Will most likely require some coaching to begin using the app successfully. Once the basic concept of giving one more dollar for the change is understood, then learning might just speed along solo. My adult daughter with special needs is loving this app.
Great! About time an app came out to reinforce this concept. The kids love it!!
