About this app

Welcome to NatWest Rooster Money–a pocket money manager, piggy bank, reward chart, savings tracker & chores app–made to help families teach kids about money & savings goals. We also have a prepaid Visa debit card for kids that lets parents raise their youngsters to be money-wise.

With our allowance & kids money saving app, parents help children on their first steps towards understanding the value of money with a piggy bank–saving money–through to their first real-world purchases. Start with our reward chart, move them onto managing their own cash, earning with our chores & savings app, before trying a Rooster Card–a prepaid debit card for kids.

Parents can track pocket money, manage savings, create goals, set controls, add limits & enable their child to make real transactions online & in store.

We also offer the Rooster Card for extra features like our chore manager, extra family members, and setting interest rates. The Rooster Card is a kids’ card (also a teens debit card), which links to your family’s Rooster Money account.

So far, so good. Using the paid version and have it set up for 4 kids. The "regulars" are good for my 16 y.o., who has phone, car insurance, etc. For the younger ones, it's just good motivation and a teaching tool. I contacted the developer with a question and suggestion, and got a response right away. *Update* My younger kids are learning so much about finances with this app. We homeschool, and I can't imagine anything better to teach the kids about earning, saving, and spending.

The app itself should be 4 1/2 or 5 stars - I love no longer having to go back and figure out back allowance because I'm not on top of it every week. I also love that my kid can ask to buy something in a store and I can immediately take the money out instead of forgetting until it's too late to remember how much he spent. But the 2 stars is for all the annoying ads my phone now pops up with every time I return to my main screen. It's getting to the point where I am considering deleting the app. Ads within an app I can understand, but ads that take over my whole phone? That is unacceptable.

Hi Betsy! Thanks for sharing your feedback. I'm glad the app is helping you keep track of allowances! But I'm sorry you're having problems with ads, that sounds quite unusual. Would you be able to send us a description of what you're seeing to so we can look in to this for you? Hopefully we can stop that happening. Thanks!

I'm using the free version at the moment, and it's fantastic. Plenty of features, yet very easy to use and navigate. I'm a FinTech nerd, and I love that this app lets me share that with my kids! It's been a huge help in teaching them to give first, save second, and enjoy the rest. Favorite features: Auto allowance splits Goal based savings Great visuals let my kids "see" where their money is going, even when I don't have cash on hand Either parent can add/remove money or stars any time anywhere
