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!
What's New in Version 1.2
Thanks for using PiggyBot®! If your family loves it, please leave a review, it would mean a lot to us!
New in version 1.2:
- Check out the new Bonus Chores section, where you can add extra chores, assign each a dollar value, and help your kids keep track of completed chores.
- We heard your squeals, and now PiggyBot lets you turn the music off completely!
- Squished some PiggyBugs.
I have three kids and was trying to keep track of allowances and purchases on paper, trying to pay them cash each week, I would get behind, they would lose it, they would want something at the store and then when I took it out of their allowance they wouldn't remember.....and on and on and on. This app let me set up accounts for all three kids with separate buckets for spend, save and share. They get to "swipe" their money in each week, and if they want something at the store I just whip out my iPad and deduct it while their in line to check out. Absolutely love this app. The interface is fun too. Thank you for making my life easier!!
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.
