ArithFit is mainly targeted towards getting children to practice arithmetics, but it is an engaging game, not an app that is just asking questions. Even though it can be considered an educational game for children, it is also enjoyed by adults.
ArithFit trains your ability to quickly perform sums (or products) and recognize patterns. It is possible to customize how it works by editing several settings, and to adapt it to everyone, from preschool children to adults.
ArithFit is short for "Arithmetics Fitness". But while it trains basic arithmetics skills, it doesn't do so by asking questions which soon become boring. Instead, it does so with a fast-paced game that just grabs your attention. Since it is a game, not a test, users like it and keep playing it, improving their math abilities as they progress towards higher scores.
Gameplay: Three numbers attached together fall down from above. They can be pushed left or right to change the place where they land. The numbers keep piling up unless they can be combined with numbers that are already there in a sum (or product, depending on your settings) that matches a given target result. The aim of the game is to keep this pile of colorful objects from growing too much.

Updating my old review. This is still great and much more customizable than before. The iPad version is awesome.
Nice new probability feature. Much better game than most I've downloaded.
Waste of money for iPad
The developers didn't bother to properly design this app for the iPad. 1. The game starts immediately without instructions and there is no way to pause it. While you are trying to change options your screen becomes a mess. It only remotely works if you configure it for a tiny phone screen not the iPad and even then it is not stable.
2. Everything is too tiny and hard to read. 3. The controls are hard to use and in the wrong place. 4. You can't drop blocks so the game is alternately too fast or tediously slow while you wait for blocks to drop. 5. Hard to understand what is happening on the screen.
I bought this app for my 6 and 12 year olds to improve their math skills but they both hate it and even I find it frustrating and almost impossible to use. Also since there is no way to pause it they can never show me any score or progress. This might be an OK phone app but it is not for the iPad.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
