We all want what’s best for our kids. We want to give them the best opportunities and every possible advantage we can. iOS devices are great tools that we can use in this quest. With all of the great apps and features though it’s sometimes hard to wade through it all and find the best choices for our children.
The best apps are those that allow are kids to have fun while learning at the same time. Kids like things with cute little characters and fun sound effects: these types of things attract their attention and keep them interested. Twist and Count - Pinball Math! is a great example of all of these things. It’s a great way for them to improve their math skills while having fun at the same time. This app is available for purchase from the App Store at a cost of $0.99 and it’s compatible with the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
There are countless kids' apps in the App Store and most of them are geared towards helping kids to learn and grow. Some of them do a better job of this than others and Twist and Count - Pinball Math! definitely falls into this latter category. What makes this app unique is its fun and different way of letting your children interact with the app. There’s no tapping or swiping in the app, but there is a lot of twisting and shaking. The five-year-old in our house absolutely loved this game.
Some apps really don’t have a lot to criticize, and this is definitely one of those apps. There are no ads and no in-app purchases which is great to see in a kid’s app. Let’s face it: we don’t want our kids accidently accessing something they shouldn’t because of a pop-up ad. There isn’t much by way of instructions in this one, but it isn’t really necessary either. This app will require 55.5 MB of available space on your iOS device.
How to Play
Gameplay in Twist and Count - Pinball Math! is pretty simple: it really is all about twisting your device. The app will give your child a simple math equation to solve, with three possible answers, and all users have to do is twist the device to maneuver the correct amount of little characters towards the right choice. It is similar to a pinball game in a lot of ways. Another good way of looking at it is that it’s reminiscent of those hand held games with the little marbles in them that you direct through a maze. The bottom line is that it’s a lot of fun. Once your child solves the equation he simply moves on to the next one by shaking the device. They’ll get a lot of mileage out of this game for sure.
Twist and Count - Pinball Math! is one of the most innovative and fun kids’ education apps to come out of the App Store in a long time. With its fun twist and shake controls your kids will absolutely love this one. This is a must-have!
