There are lots of children’s education apps to choose from, but they aren’t all created equal. The best ones make learning fun for kids, and allow parents to control and track their activities – no one wants their children accidently running up large bills with in-app purchases. Basic Math Skills for School with Numbie definitely ticks all of these boxes making it one of the better math learning apps you’re likely to find for your child. Best of all there are tons of activities in this app that will keep your child occupied for a long time.
While this really is a fun app for the kids, most of it requires a subscription to access it – only the first of ten chapters is free. The first chapter is fully functional though, so you’ll be able to get a good idea of what you think of the app before deciding if you want to purchase a subscription. Any purchase requires a passcode to unlock, which gives parents the peace of mind of not worrying about what their child might be getting into. This app will require 50.2 MB of available space on your iOS device.
How to Play
The app starts with a fun introduction from Numbie explaining to your child how everything works, after that they can navigate their way through each chapter using a fun little visual map. Each point on the map represents a new learning activity and all your child has to do to access it is tap on it. Even this map is fun for kids with cute graphics, and fun music. Loading times for each activity only takes a couple of seconds, which is good because we all know it doesn’t take long for a young child to get bored!
Each activity features a different character to help your child with the lesson – once again keeping things fresh and interesting for the child. In each lesson your child will have to move fun items on the screen to answer the questions such as cupcakes. If they’re having difficulty they can always tap on the help icon if they want to and Numbie is always offering helpful hints as well. Once they complete the task successfully they will automatically go to the next activity, or they can tap on the forward arrow at any time to move on.
