Have you forgotten most of your algebra? Algebra Touch will refresh your skills using touch-based techniques built from the ground up for your iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch.
Say you have x + 3 = 5. You can drag the 3 to the other side of the equation.
Enjoy the wonderful conceptual leaps of algebra, without getting bogged down by the tedium of traditional methods.
"With this app, the author has successfully made algebra beautiful. I really wish this app existed when I was studying algebra 25 years ago." - geekswithjuniors.com
Drag to rearrange, tap to simplify, and draw lines to eliminate identical terms.
Easily switch between lessons and randomly-generated practice problems.
Create your own sets of problems to work through in the equation editor, and have them appear on all of your devices with iCloud. (there is a version of this app for OSX as well!)
Current material covers:
Simplification, Like Terms, Commutativity, Order of Operations, Factorization, Prime Numbers, Elimination, Isolation, Variables, Basic Equations, Distribution, Factoring Out, Exponent Product Rule, and Exponent Quotient Rule.
Made possible with support from the Percepts and Concepts Laboratory of Indiana University, Bloomington, and the Cave Lab at the University of Richmond.
Research supported by the Institute of Education Sciences, U.S. Department of Education, through Grant R305A110060 University of Richmond.

What's New in Version 2.0.2
Fixed bug for creating custom problem -2x^2
Crash fixes on Euclidean Fountain and spam-tapping the topic select screen.
Fixed bug for x*y combining, not in the way you'd think.
Added in thank you + license for DDMathParser (thanks Dave DeLong!)
Love this app!! Exactly what we needed!
My son loves math but has autism and significant motor planning issues such that writing out mathematical calculations is impossible for him. This app, with its limited set of necessary movements that allow him to demonstrate what he knows is absolutely wonderful. Many other apps provide work space for a person to lay out calculations that are then used to solve the problem. This makes it impossible for my son and we have searched high and low for apps like this that use movement (swiping) or just the numerical keys to complete the problems. They are few and far between, especially once a person moves into advanced math. Thank you, thank you for this app. For a boy who loves math and has difficulty showing what he knows this app did the trick. Please use this method for other math concepts!!!!
Kind of Frustrating
The good: The concept of this app is as good as anything I've seen for teaching algebra in an intuitive way. It works well for teaching basic concepts and skills. HOWEVER, the bad: the problem creation part of the app does not work well at all. A strong tool would allow you to create equations with squares, cubes, and higher degree terms to teach about factoring and solving quadratics, cubics, and other polynomials. The tool simply will not allow you to do any of that. I asked the author if it was possible to create those kinds of expressions and he didn't even respond. It's a shame, because without that capability Algebra Touch is a very limited tool. And it is kind of irksome you have to buy something before you can try it and find out it doesn't really do the job.
Perfect! Please, make calculus touch as we'll! And then more.
5 stars are not enough...
This app is as close to ingenious as you can get, without exaggerating the "complement". It is without question; The creators of this app have designed it while "thinking out of the box". In my opinion: Algebra Touch is the new age of learning. I'm not saying that the same would apply for other genres of education. But, they could. I hope this ingenuity will further redefine our way of learning else where, as it has mine.
