Broke App: helping students manage finances


Students at the University of Michigan School of Information want to help others manage their finances, but not in the conventional way. Their phone app, called Broke App, offers encouragement to students to make sound financial decisions. For example, the app learns your spending habits and prompts you to consider alternatives. Buy a large coffee on the way to work each morning? The Broke App will note how much you could save by making your own coffee at home and taking it with you.
