A Message from Limited Cue

I asked Wade Koning from Limited Cue what makes Next Dollar Up special, and he wrote: "Users of the app, particularly those with special needs, will gain the confidence necessary to use money in the community to purchase items up to fifty dollars. While we can't take credit for the original concept of Next Dollar Up, we were able to recognize a need to build this successful teaching strategy into a useful and enjoyable app. Based on the positive feedback received from parents and educators around the world, we consider it to be a success."

According to the Friendship Circle App Review, a service of last year's Readers' Choice Awards winner for Favorite Special-Needs Regional Resource, "Next Dollar Up focuses on teaching essential math skills and the essential life skill of money management. The app teaches the concept of buying and selling and gives individuals with special needs the confidence to purchase goods in a real-life setting."
