Ratings and Reviews

Works as described!


This is an excellent little app! You can change the color of the frame, the color of the beads, and the number of rows! I didn't know it would do all that. If you don't know how to use an abacus, learn on the web! It's so fun! Plus, there is something just existential about using the most modern communication tool in the world to use one of the oldest.

Screenshots are misleading and wrong!


Unlike the screenshots, the app shows the Arabic numerals in bright characters in the middle of the screen. We got this app to practice reading and using the abacus, but find that impossible without the eyes being drawn to the numbers in the middle of the screen--so we "cheat" and don't read the beads. There needs to be a way to turn this off. At the least update the screenshot so others are not mislead. I can see this feature being useful for one who is proficient, but renders this app useless for learning. Will need to buy another.

Few needed improvements


As a long time real abacus user, I have some suggestions to make this program better.
1. Momentum for the beads, so that you can "flick" them quickly.
2. Ability to set which column is the "1" column: often an abacus operator will use a center column as the 1, because it's convenient for the hand.
