"It taps early math skills by taking advantage of a natural childhood inclination", Named in the 25 Best Media For Toddlers by Parents & Common Sense Media
"Little Digits is brilliant in its simple execution and clever use of technology, and it creates an irresistible high-tech twist on using your fingers to count." USA TODAY
Little Digits is a fun educational app that teaches children about numbers by putting a new spin on finger counting.
Using the iPad multi-touch screen, Little Digits displays number characters by detecting how many fingers you put down. Children can learn to associate the number on the screen with the number of fingers they place down, whilst enjoying the unique characters and animations of the Little Digits world.
There are also games that introduce small addition and subtraction calculations, where you can work out the answer using the same multi-touch finger detection.
This is an app that will grow with your child's numerical understanding. Not only can they discover numbers through initial independent play, you can also play collaboratively with your child, each putting fingers down to count and work out calculations together. Then when your child is ready, they can work out the answers for themselves, using their own little digits!
The voice sounds are in English, but you can record new voices within the app.

My three year old adores this app! At first I was tempted to delete the app until he was older because it seemed a little frustrating that he could not make his little fingers count and I had to sit next to him the entire time to help... Awful to admit but I give my son the iPad to get breaks to do chores and at first I was bummed that this app was the ONLY thing he wanted to play but could not do it on his own... But my son quickly memorized all addition and subtraction problems equaling up to ten that he did not need help. I do many Montessori activities with my son and honestly, no amount of time spent counting rods and stones could have taught my three year old how to add and subtract better than this app. The physical activities helped him understand the concept of adding and taking away but this app taught him to quickly memorize the problems.
What a great way for kids to interact with the iPad. Excellent graphics. I hope to see more apps like this.
