Mencal is an app help you expand your ability to mentally solve math problems. All of us can do simple addition and subtraction of one or two digit numbers without a calculator.Now mencal is here to kick that ability into overdrive.
Mencal provides you with lessons and simple tricks to allow you to: work with three digit numbers; fractions of different styles regardless if you are adding them or subtracting them; and finding sums with multiplication and division. Then it will test you on your grasp and knowledge of the methods you've learned.
• Example:
 Same ten's digit,1's sum to 10
38×32=1216
①:Multiply tens place digit by itself plus 1
(3+1)×3=12
②:Add two zeros to the end of step①
12<—00=1200
③:Multiply the two one's digits together
8×2=16
④:Add the results of step ②and③
1200+16=1216

Ratings and Reviews
Great App
You just have to devote time do the application and do examples over and over and over again. With time your master these exercises. Your mastery will save you a lot of time.
Could be great
This is the bestlooking app of this sort that I have seen (other than the choice of handwritten/chalkboard font for the numbers), but something tells me the appearance took precedence over the importance of utility. The instructions for methods are sometimes unclear, and not only because it looks as though the person who wrote it was not a native Englishspeaker. Sometimes crucial words are omitted. Sometimes it's just unclear what's being said.
Additionally, it is my opinion that the app could use some expansion regarding how one is able to test oneself. Let the user test him or herself incrementally with each step as they begin to understand it, or allow the user to include or omit the methods used in the testing portion. Otherwise, it requires the user to master and understand each kind of method before feeling they can challenge themselves effectively. Otherwise, this is a great app, and a beautiful one to boot. I'd love to use this more often if I could seem to have it work more in my favor as I learn and test myself with each method. It certainly had great potential, and I look forward to seeing how/if it changes in the future.
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.
