No Math Anxiety Here!


My daughter, who has moderate intellectual disabilities and cries when she is asked to do math, absolutely LOVED this app! She quickly and independently worked her way to a bronze trophy prize. I have never seen her work math problems without any kind of complaint, so this engaging app was a miraculous breakthrough for us. The way the counting is structured, with the apples wrapping in paper, meant she did not lose her place or arrive at the wrong answer. Well done!!

The only things that would make this better would be to allow other kinds of fruit or veggies and to allow it to be set for up to 20 + 20.

Doesn’t keep growing with the kids


Bought this app for our kindergarten level grandson, however he has already surpassed the app and is bored. It’s GREAT for kids just starting to learn counting and recognizing the numbers on the screen. But once basic math skills for 1 through 9 are learned, there is no further challenge in this game. For $2.99 it kept him interested for about 15 minutes. Now I’m off to search for another app. Wish this one grew with him and offerend more challenges.

Could Be Improved

Serene SoCal Gal

This app would be much better if the apples being added together didn't roll into one group. Great for teaching the concept of addition. usually quickly learned. BUT the app would be much better if the apples in starting group were kept separate from the group being added. Thus, clearly illustrating addition facts, which - after being visualized - can be memorized.
