The only parent-designed, kid-tested allowance app that helps kids spend, share, and save smart. PiggyBot is a fun, easy way to track allowance spending and saving. No missed allowance, no forgetting IOUs, just money smarts turned fun!
Instead of cash, your kids have a virtual balance with you. Think of it as an IOU. Each child will have separate Spend-It, Share-It, and Save-It accounts. You decide how to allocate their allowance.
Kids can set goals, take pictures of things they want, share money, and more. When they save enough, we call them a "Goal Getter!" And there’s a fun screen to show off the items they purchased, reinforcing principles of saving for wants, needs, and nice-to-haves. It’s a virtual piggy bank that pays off in real life!
This free app is just one way we give families the tools you need to talk about smart spending, smart sharing, and smart saving. PiggyBot is brought to you by Kasasa® – free checking accounts that reward you. Not available at big banks. For good reason.
It’s never too early for smart money management. Download PiggyBot today!
Note: We recommend setting up PiggyBot on your device to encourage spending, sharing and saving discussions between you and your child(ren). Plus, then you'll always have PiggyBot close at hand!

Recent problem when inputting info
Initially this was a great app. Very user friendly esp for my 6 yo to track her spend and save amounts. However I've had problems recently adding info for non-allowance money. The keyboard won't show up so you cannot add the $ amount or description. Ex if you want to input gift money into your child's account. The only way I can get it to work is to totally power off the iphone and restart - a total waste of time. I'm going to switch to another app because of this problem. Pls fix this problem, then I might consider returning to this app.
Perfect for paperless allowance, encouraging savings, and learning about money. It is far more learning friendly than I expected. It's simple and colorful and my 8 yr old is learning. :)
The only tiny thing I might suggest is a way to see when amounts other than allowance are paid (birthday money for example)...you can do them and write a description but if you can see the breakdown afterwards, I've not found how.
Good concept but needs work
There's a lot to like about piggybot, but there are some problems too. Many times text fields can't be edited. No keyboard comes up. So you're kind of screwed when that happens. Also, you can't change weekly allowance values. Once you set it up for the child the first time, it will remain there forever. Maybe they'll fix these issues in a future update. But as of February 15, 2015, these issues remain.
