Math can be a very difficult and trying subject for kids to understand. With that in mind we’ve got an app that you can use with your young kids to better their skills, understanding, and recognition. The iTouchiLearn Numbers for Preschool Kids Free app for your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone is filled with all kinds of interactions, activities, games, animations, and virtual rewards. It's all about grabbing your child's attention and keeping it.
What I like about this app is not only are you able to help your child learn about a number of different math skills but in doing so you are actually helping to build confidence. The app focuses on "core early learning number skills" but does so in a fun and interactive way. To help encourage the kids and keep them motivated there are virtual rewards they can win. The activities themselves focus on counting, subtraction, addition, and number recognition. All of these are of course very important skills for preschoolers to learn and helps to give them a head start when they head to school.
In the latest update of the app there have been improvements and enhancements made giving users an even better experience. The app is free to download and use; however, to unlock the full version you'll need to do so in the App Store for $1.99.

Playing the Games and Activities
It's important to point out that even though the app is filled with interactive activities and games this is not a game; rather, it is an education-based app. It just takes the approach of a game. Although the app is completely kid-friendly it’s wise to work on these activities with your children so you can help them if they are feeling frustrated and discuss any questions they may have. This will just help to enhance the learning experience they walk away with. It should be noted that this app is of course ideal for toddlers and preschoolers but it is also a perfect app for children with special needs.
I do find the graphics a bit simple here but when you take into account the age group the app is designed for then they seem more appropriate. The spoken instructions are very clear so young ones will have no problem understanding.
