[prMac.com] McLean, Virginia - To celebrate the launch of NxtApp 4 Kids, smart new math game for iPhone and iPad, ICON is offering a limited-time 50% discount. NxtApp 4 Kids is an exciting interactive game that helps kids practice basic math in a fun-filled atmosphere. The 50% saving will help parents find educational and fun activities for their children.
NxtApp 4 Kids was recently featured by Apple in the first spot as "New and Noteworthy" on iTunes for Kids and Educational games categories. NxtApp 4 Kids is a fun new math game for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch where the gamer has to complete sequences of numbers and is timed against the clock. The game also includes global leaderboard with Apple Game Center which adds competitive edge.
A leading reviewer of educational apps, Heather Leister of The iPhone Mom writes: "NxtApp 4 Kids is a smart app for mental math. My six year old demonstrated the app for me and then I gave it a try myself. My mental math skills are definitely not as sharp as they once were." The app comes with five stages. Each stage asks you to complete a number sequence, the sequences vary in difficulty. The first stage will have you adding one to complete the sequence. The next stage is subtract one. After that things become trickier. Stage three is "add" and it could be adding any number to finish the sequence. Stage four is subtract, again any number, and stage five is addition or subtraction. You'll have to figure out which operation you're going to do as you go.
The game has a farm theme and barnyard animals hold the numbers shown in the sequences. You'll hear them making sounds while you play the game. Music also plays in the background. Both of these effects can be turned off in the options. NxtApp 4 Kids even hooks up with Game Center. This is math work but it has a game feel to it.
NxtApp 4 Kids has obviously been designed to work with a variety of skill levels. "My son can be challenged by the beginning levels while my older girls (and yes, me) will find ourselves stretched by the higher stages. Some of the number sequences even deal with negative numbers. I like the way this app works with pattern recognition and number sequencing. I also like how it's encouraging the mental math skills while children are having fun, thinking they're playing a game."
