Overall Score: 50/100

version reviewed: 1.0

Best for: Education, Attention & concentration, Early math, Eye-hand coordination, Interaction, Thinking & problem solving

What it is: introduction to numbers and counting (numbers 0-9). The app is based on the CBeebies 'Numberjacks' educational series.

What you do with it: scroll through the Numberjacks and listen to the numbers read out, tap and count objects popping out of the box or explore the picture sets of each Numberjack.

What we liked: the concept (easy enough to introducing numbers/counting even for the youngest kids), nice graphics, ease of use, audio instructions.

What we didn't like: the activities get quickly repetitive (not much variety). We would expect more interactions and animations (especially in the pictures section).

Numbers & Addition! Math games - Android version

Numbers & Addition! Math games - Android version

Price: free

May contain in-app purchases
Android

Overall Score: 49/100

version reviewed: 1.4.3

reviewed:


Best for: Education, Attention & concentration, Early math, Eye-hand coordination, Interaction, Thinking & problem solving

What it is: a set of 3 activities for developing early math skills (counting, ordering, identifying the correct number of objects).

What you do with it: the 'meerkats' game: identify quantities (1-20) and associate them with numbers, the 'frogs' game: follow the numbers in the correct order, the 'ostriches' game: identify the correct number of objects. The progress in each game can be tracked separately for each user of the app (requires registration).

What we liked: the concept (combining simple game-like activities with learning), cute characters, the rewards system, stats/progress tracking, automatic adjustment of the difficulty levels, audio instructions and clues.

What we didn't like: the activities are rather simple and can quickly become repetitive. We didn't find the ordering ('frogs') activity particularly well presented. Some animal rights conscious parents may find parts of the 'ostriches' activity objectionable.
