Ratings and Reviews
Complete lack of basic functionality
This app forces you to do things against the parent and teacher’s wishes.
For example, if a child is already on Level H addition at school, there is no option to start them on Level H. In my daughter’s school, she has started subtraction, but it won’t let her practice subtraction. She has to repeat all (?) the addition levels before it unlocks. Why? In Parent mode, I should be able to tell it what level she is at.
Furthermore, there are no other very basic options. For example, you have to take a 30 minute break every 5 minutes of playing. This should be configurable.
The standard version gives 3 seconds, but it should have the ability to override and help slower (or younger) children build confidence.
Overall, this has the potential to help kids who are using Rocket Math in their school’s curriculum but it falls short on usability. It’s such a shame to have an app with potential completely fall apart because of such minor usability issues.
Not User Friendly
Seriously! Add an option to change the time length. I have 5 children working with this app on two devices (because you are only allowed three on each device?!?) and I couldn't figure out why they all cringed when I would have them practice. It's the three second aspect that can't be changed. I finally just told them to tell me the answer and I would type it in and I couldn't even beat that darn timer. No wonder. Your design is flawed and you should really think about listening to your users.
Fix the bugs and it would be great
I like the built in break time. It is buggy though. If my daughter gets one wrong the app won't accept the correct answer right away. So if the answer is 5, she hits 5 and it doesn't appear right away so she hits it again and again and then it appears 555 and then she gets frustrated. The app only has trouble registering wrong answers. The right answer appears right away.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
