Nothing Makes Sense

For starters, it's a one use app used purely for assembly's. Why make an app to simulate what it's like to spend money if you can only use it a single time? Second, it never gave us the option to chose our occupation. Our spouse's occupation, sure, leave that one to chance, but life isn't a game of roulette where you land on a job and stick with it. Like, why would anyone choose to get paid $2,000 a month? Third, the family: Why not make it a choice? Some people don't want children or a spouse, and the child is way too expensive to take care of. Why not make both of these a choice, and if the app user wanted to have them, let them see by manually adding them in. Don't force them to get married and have a kid, that's just illogical. And finally, when it comes to some of the options for what you can spend your money on, why is it that all of it has to be mandatory? Why is it that you have to spend money in entertainment or decoration in order to proceed with the rest of the app? Make everything a choice as to what you spend your money on. Everything you spend money on in life is a choice. It's a choice to buy games, to buy a vase, to take your kid to an amusement park, but you don't have to do this in real life. Why do you have to do these things in the game? Overall this app is horrible at simulating real world experiences, and should require more thought, effort, and time in order for it to be even considered passable.

There is more than what meets the eye with this so called “app”

Melissa came to my school and made my entire class use this useless app in which it wasted valuable class time in our economics class this app is a pathetic attempt at trying to inform the youth on credit unions I strongly advise you do not download this rubbish application and save your time. I believe Melissa and her entire cult who wear purple robes are trying to brainwash the youth with this villainous pyramid scheme. The name “bite of reality” is more than meets the surface is it a threat to our society and we must not let them prevail this app needs to be shut down as they continue to attempt to expand. Why is everything purple? I also believe this app is racist as when you start it gives you a random occupation and debt for a simulator I am from the Middle East and I got pilot this event is also taking place a day after 9/11 coincidence? I think not. My friend got farmer and he is Hispanic.

From a student, not that bad

Like the title says I’m a student who’s school had this event and used this app so I ask that If you’re a student and you’re feeling like you’re gonna hate this to just listen for a moment, this app does give you some actually real things you’ll have to deal with and gives you genuinely realistic situations to work with, and buying and managing the money you’re given actually is kinda fun, given a LOT of the enjoyment comes down to the people at each of the “shops,” with my experience one of the people working at one of the shops tried to coax me into buying more expensive items and made the experience actually enjoyable.

Apart from the experience itself the app really isn't bad, just has about 2 issues, one being that swiping between each of the needs is a little bit laggy and viewing your money resets you if you've fully completes the experience. The only other thing is a small pet peeve which is wanting to be able to tap to go to a need and and not have to always swipe to them.
