In PLAY mode the object of the game is to bounce the piggy up and collect coins while avoiding blocks and falling down. This mode features two control options so you can either Tilt the device to move the piggy left & right or select Touch for on-screen arrows. The results screen at the end of each game also shows you how many of each coin was collected and the total values.
In SAVE $ mode, you can add coins to the piggy bank and it shows you how much money you’ve saved. So when you add coins to your real piggy bank, just open up the app and add those same coins to this piggy bank. It’s a great tool for keeping up with how much you’ve been saving, and it can be emptied if you decide to empty your piggy bank.
In LEARN mode, you can learn about how much each coin is worth, how they look on the front and back, and various other information. In QUIZ mode, there are several different questions with multiple choice answers. The questions can be simply asking you to tap on a specific coin or even figuring how many coins it takes to equal a certain value. Both LEARN & QUIZ modes have voiced dialogue for auditory learning, but it can be turned on or off in the settings.

Each time a coin is touched, the program counts both the number of coins as well as the dollars and cents. A grand total can be found in the lower right hand corner of the screen.
Simply touch the "Start Over" button to erase all values and begin again.
To disable sound, just uncheck the "Sound Enabled" box.

The story of bankaroo
Growing up in the Silicon Valley, Danielle was always fascinated by computers and their endless possibilities. She likes to go on walks with her dad, Etay, and pitch ideas to him. One day, they were out shopping and she wanted dad to get her something using her chore money. Dad said she already used it for something else, but they couldn't remember what for. This was the inception of the bankaroo idea.
Danielle wanted to build a website and a mobile application that will help parents teach kids about the value of money, as well as help them manage their allowance, gift and chores money. She came up with bankaroo (http://www.bankaroo.com), a free service that is a virtual bank for kids money, where they can save up for goals, use money for different things while their parents can add allowance, chore and gift money into their virtual account. The real money stays in the parents' wallets, but the virtual representation of it is very real.
Danielle came up with the functionality and the design and dad developed the website and app. Danielle was the QA specialist and critique, and also did all the tutorials you can see on the site. The service is completely free and is a service for the community and for all kids out there.
