Very fun and challenging
This math app is the only one that I have actually had fun with. I would recommend it to anybody who wants real FUN whilst playing a math app. You work hard for your stars and are thinking, woah! What's going to be the next comic that I earn? So then you will just keep playing it trying to earn as many stars as possible.
Good app for kids
I was hesitant to buy this. I wanted something for my third grader. I am REALLY happy I bought this. My biggest concern was what kinds of questions she will see. Well, this delivers. You choose what type of math problem to do (+,-,x,/). Then, you choose the global difficulty. She is learning multiplication, so that is what it is set to, and easy.
In the future, I would love to see the difficulty more granular. So, I could set addition/subtraction to medium, and mult to easy. Other features I would like to see:
Being able to put a number out of 10 you see a type of question. My daughter could use maintenance of add/sub, so say 2 medium questions, and the rest multiplication.
I would like to see a very easy category that shows easier questions, say nothing over 5 on either side.
It would be nice to show different ways of showing problems. So x/x, instead of x divide x. Just to get kids comfortable seeing other forms.
Finally, it would be cool to add a parental lock for the settings.
Fun app, worth the price.
This app is just what it says it is: a Fox Trot-themed math quiz game, focusing on the 4 basic operations. The animations are fun, the sounds are basic but effective, and the whole thing has a very nice, polished feel to it. The rewards are cartoons of really corny math puns, which are all the more charming for being so awful. Plus, by buying it, you get to directly support one of the best cartoonists still working, and encourage him to make more apps!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
