Has anyone use one of the apps that when you pay for something it rounds it up and saves it for you? 
Are they any good? Do they charge?

    Perhaps they are of some use for those without the ability and/or the discipline to save. However, I think most would agree that making a conscious effort to save what you can afford, and prioritising this, is preferable to having an app make saving dependent on you spending. These apps are normally free, but some involve investing rather than saving and come with investment-related fees.
