Ratings and Reviews
Embracing children's love of competition, INKids’ friendly app will have them racing to answer multiple-choice questions on animals, math, shapes, and dozens of other topics. Designed for kids ages 4 through 10, it lets up to four students play at once on the same iPad—making it a delightful classroom activity for groups or individuals. Teachers can set up custom games with specific subjects and even create their own questions to reinforce their current lesson plan.
I was looking for an alternative to a smart table. I needed something that did not take up as much space or have such a hefty price tag. My needs were answered when I discovered the Futaba App! I am a preschool teacher and I was not sure my 4-year olds would be able to utilize the preset games especially at the beginning of the school year. First, I was thrilled to discover how easy it is to create my own games with pictures or text. Seriously, I created three games to reinforce letters, numbers, and even classmate names in less than 20 minutes! Second, I was pleasantly surprised that I could turn questions on and off in the preset games to adjust to what my students were currently learning. I tell every teacher I see about the beauty and flexibility of this app. For those teaching higher grades, games exist for math facts, sight words, states, presidents, etc. This is the perfect app for some friendly competition in your classroom!
Awesome for classrooms!
This has a simple, but fun, game format that works in single player or multiplayer mode for up to 4 students. It is great for "drill," review, or those topics students need to practice a lot.
It has a variety of games to choose from, or teachers can create games of their own.
When I had trouble with a step, they answered my email, and then called me. Their tech support was excellent. They also have several tutorials and an intuitive GUI that makes most processes pretty clear.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
