iphone App Review and Giveaway

I am not a big fan of math especially fractions lets just say I think it is my inability to focus well that makes me not the best math whiz. I turn to Google whenever I have a math question that needs to be solved.

Recently I was contacted to do a review/giveaway of an iphone app. You all know how much I love my dearest iphone I could not turn it down even if it did have to do with math. Who knew I would learn something beneficial.

Motion Math is a neat game that actually makes fractions fun! Pretty unbelievable right? What I first loved about Motion Math was that it is a game where you have to move around to play. You have to tilt the iphone to move the ball with a fraction on it to the right location on a bar. Some of my favorite apps are ones where you have to move around or tilt the phone to play.  The game follows a star trying to make it back to it’s galaxy and the constant change of scenery makes the game interesting and stimulating as well.

I was also excited about this game because the website said it was a great game for kids. When I set Shriek (My 7 year old) on the app I wondered if it would keep her attention. It really did more than that. She loved it and caught on quickly. the best part is it is not discouraging at all and gives you hints as you keep trying. When her first game ended I realized she was on the medium level. I switched her to beginner where she even went farther into the game. there is also audio encouragement with words like perfect, and loud applause.   Even I began to get a little vain and full of myself over my ever improving fraction skills.

Here is Shriek intensely enjoying Motion Math.

I really did like this app and surprised myself with how I actually started to figure out fractions better than I ever have. I did get a lot wrong at first but improved along the way. Next time I have a math question  I think I will first try to figure it out before turning to the wisdom of Google. Motion Math is available at the itunes store for .99 cents.

I am excited that I also have a free app code for Motion Math to give away to one of my readers!

    I don’t have an iphone but I was always good at math. My math teacher made us say “I love fractions and fractions love me,” at the start of every class. I use fractions all the time!

    Uhh math and I was so lost that my senior year the teacher made me a swinging deal. If I would cease and desist from asking questions he would give me an ‘A’, seems my questions were causing the kids who ‘got it’ to lose it!

    You should check out the My Snowman app! It is so much fun for the kids; they can build their own snowman and pick from many different accessories. http://www.appdicted.com/my-snowman.html
