This has to have one of the best designs and possibly the best set of activities of math apps for younger kids. The various activities are grouped into "books" including: counting, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, geometry, measurement, puzzles (including pattern recognition), and fractions. Each of these topics has a set of great activities that visualize math concepts in a number of ways, helping kids (or older learners) to come to a solid understanding of what different basic operations mean, as well as the numbers involved. In other words, you're not just learning "2+4," but also experiencing at least a half-dozen other ways to visualize what that process of addition means.

If I were rating just the variety of activities provided, this would receive a solid 5-star rating. I also love the design, the scoring system, the use of a "3 star" system to designate mastery of a level, and the gradual promotion to different (strange) "levels" beginning with farmer and moving through things like alchemist, dragon, and ultimately king.

But there are some serious flaws in the way the activities are presented, which can make it hard for a young child to progress through the levels. I would still strongly recommend this app to somewhat older kids who need math reinforcement, but if you are hoping to teach your kid math through this app or use these activities as a supplement as kids are learning the concepts for the first time, I think there may be some problems.

The biggest issue is in the ordering of activities for addition and subtraction. For some bizarre reason, this app places the manipulation of numerical symbols first.

Yesterday, we had a children's game with questionable COPPA compliance. Today, we have an example of how it should be done, right down to the linking to Oddrobo's Privacy Policy (Under the product page "Technical Details"). Zero Permissions, Zero Code Concerns, and... well, there is a single link to KING OF MATH and a Rate Us under options, but beyond that, clean interface.

We have seen KING OF MATH as a FAOTD back on 11Feb2015, and as the title suggests, this is the "Junior" version, and does generally rely on empirical reinforcement instead of pure rational reasoning. Pictorial elements, i.e. seeing a number of apples then below that a number of faces and being asked how many for each, are quite prevalent throughout all the exercises. Presentation variety is yet another strong point.

It does seem oddly out of place, however, that after the strong visual elements of the counting series, the addition and subtraction components jump straight into numerical algorithms, visual cognition then reasserting later on. Nevertheless, this isn't meant to replace proper homeschooling/outside education courses and the specific progression scales laid out by them, but as reinforcement, perhaps with joint interaction between child and parent (always the best course, in my opinion).

Quibbles with the game's content as compared to a scholarly textbook aside, the lure of character progression and awarded achievements, thirty total, will certainly add strong incentive for the child's desire to continue. Played very well on a 5.5" smartphone, and I see no reason why it will not play equally well on yet smaller screens.

Installed at 18.36MB onto my Device Memory with no option to move it off onto my SD card. Runs OFFLINE; Back-key did prompt a Quit, and removed the game from Active Tasks, yet a Running Process does remain.

5.0 out of 5 stars So worth it! Excellent! April 3, 2014

I have a very mathy 5 year old, and we have been working through the levels together each day. Arranged as "books" according to different math areas: addition, subtraction, division, geometry etc., the levels get progressively harder, but there's enough content here to keep a math hungry kid going for several days. This is the junior version, and we'll get the next level up when we've finished this one - well worth the money! The problems are presented in traditional algorithm forms, as well as the more pictorial forms of Singapore Math and Common Core curriculums, so there are varieties of strategies for kids to learn and practice, and it's been good for me (I grew up on old school math) to be able to go through these things with my daughter - it's helping me understand new methods as well as helping her. I thoroughly recommend this app.

The app starts you with counting and moves you through addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, geometry, comparison, puzzles, measuring and fractions. It is a great teaching aid for your children and anyone that needs to learn math principles. This developer also designed a top math app titled King of Math. The app uses graphic of items to teach the basics and you can work your way up through the levels. Each level of training has 9 individual lessons.

As you go through the app's levels you are given a score and you are awarded 3 stars for each good performance. This is so your child and you know where they should focus their efforts to improve. You are also given a rank like Farmer, (I guess farmers are bad at math), and you move up in ranks until you are the King. Along the way your child also earns metals for acquiring stars. The app does a good job of motivation.

I found this app to be very good and regardless of whether you home school your child or are just trying to help them improve their math skill this is a great tool. I do believe that proper teaching and understanding of math comes from the help of a teacher so add your skills to that of the app and make the learning lessons fun for your child. There are even levels like Puzzles that are not math related but the help your child to select out the right answers by visually studying a drawing.

The app runs with the WIFI turned off. It is safe to download and I rate this app at 5 stars and it is worth getting and using with your children. This is an excellent teaching tool. Under settings you can set the language and turn off the music and sounds.

Permissions:
* Not a Single One!

The app contains no adware or malware. It also contains no analytics programs and it is safe to download.

This app installed 18.36MB into my device memory and it is non transferable to my SD card.
