Gimi is a multifunctional app that teaches children to be financially literate while empowering them to track and manage their own money. The free app, recommended for children ages 7 and up, helps parents and children track allowances, pocket money, and chores (or other ways to earn allowance). The app holds no real money to ensure safe money management and doesn’t connect to any bank account, but parent/supporter accounts can deduct amounts from their children’s accounts whenever money is given to them in real life.
