Ratings and Reviews
This application seems like it would be enjoyable for students and young kids. It would be appropriate to use at home. However, it is inconsistent and does not always work. The rocket that is supposed to launch sometimes fails to do so. In addition, it focuses mainly on factual information as opposed to mathematical skills. Young students might simply click on as many stars as possible as opposed to clicking on the right stars since there is no consequence for wrong answers. This way, they are not learning, they are just playing. I would not recommend it for teachers for classroom use. I would not recommend it otherwise because it is spotty and doesn’t always work.
Also having issues
I see the awesome potential in this, and reading the reviews from many years ago it looks awesome. But what happened? Did they stop supporting it? There are no math problems when you launch the rocket, it just goes up and then crashes. ??!! Please respond.
Does not work
Downloaded the app at the recommendation of an elementary school teacher – we were unable to get it to work at all. There's no green slider with which to fly a rocket so no math problems ever show up.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
