Ratings and Reviews
I think this a great practice game for students looking for visual help with understanding fractions and their equivalents. Although my app keeps quitting in the middle of the game. Will try to reload to see if that helps. Great concept though. Thanks for a great educational app! I like how you can choose the level of play as well.
It's ok but it keeps crashing
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
