Purpose of App: Dollar Up — Money Learning Aid for Special Needs Education teaches users the life skills needed to handle paying with cash. It teaches them to be able to identify how much money they have, to listen and determine how much money to pay, to compare prices, as well as other money skills needed in life.
Strengths: Works in incremental steps from identifying the correct currency, to making payments, to comparing prices. Can customize currencies.
