Blackbullion's 'Money Manager' app is a budgeting app designed specifically for students. Money Manager uses open banking to give you on overview of your finances, and can give you insights in how to reduce your spending. 

Unlike other personal finance apps, this app has been created specifically with students in mind.

Student life presents lots of unique challenges that require a unique approach. For example, it doesn’t necessarily make sense budgeting monthly as a student - because you receive your loan termly!

As well as helping you manage your money, you can also earn 'Bullions' by using the app, which you can use to enter cash giveaways and win prizes.
