[prMac.com] Waretown, NJ - Announcing that Anusen, developers of Math Magic 2.7, has launched the perfect educational tool in an app. Developers tested the program before its release and kids approved of the application unanimously, citing the fun factor. They loved solving the problems, hearing the real voice encouragements and receiving rewards. Their parents liked the fact that their children were learning so quickly and easily.
Only one week after the initial first release of Math Magic, it was showcased on the front page of the Apple website. For almost a year, it remained in the Top 10 and Top 50 lists of paid apps in the Education category of the App Store.
Part of the reason for Math Magic's success with children may be due to the fact that the application was inspired by the developer's own child. Says Senthil Pandurangan, "While watching my 4 year old one day, I gave her my iPhone to play with. I was amazed at how easily she was able to use it. That gave me the idea of developing an educational app to help kids learn while doing something fun." From that inspiration, Pandurangan and his wife created Math Magic.
Math Magic presents simple math problems that small children can answer by tapping the screen. Along the way, there are words of encouragement issued by the app, which are actual recordings of other children's voices. These are not only issued when a correct answer is given but also when a child tries. Each level contains new rewards and surprises, which the test group of children enjoyed immensely.
The first level of play offers different colored stars as rewards. Once the child has five stars, there is an award for their efforts. This boosts the child's self-esteem and gets them excited to learn more about math. After a child reaches this point, they begin to receive candies, with an award given after they collect five. From there, the rewards switch to M&M's and the change in collectible rewards continues through all seven levels.
The app's interface is simple, with kid friendly graphics and colors. Parents can help their little ones choose their favorite backgrounds or theme. There is also a preference/setting screen option to adjust voice, customize the levels, turn off the audio, along with other options. This feature helps make Math Magic behave just the way a user wants it to.
