Customer Reviews

I really WANT to love this app so much

Like at least one other reviewer, I don't think the app creator has a great grasp on English, which is understandable. English is a difficult language. That said, I think the app creator should vet the app with an English speaking person.

Secondly, but more importantly, I tried one of the tricks 267x11 but could not reproduce the correct answer using the "trick". I end up with 3,117 using the trick. (Correct answer is 2,937). Maybe it's the language issue or maybe the trick is not correct. Either way, I love the CONCEPT just struggling with the execution.

Fantastic and all but...

This is great app for any math student or struggling math students and clearly serves as a helpful tool. One thing that I do not like is the IAPs. I would have rather have paid the app in full.
