in Education (E)

[] McLean, Virginia - NxtApp 4 Kids is an educational game app focusing on number sequences in a visually-appealing environment. This app helps students practice their mental math skills. This app also gives students the opportunity to explore the wonderful world of farm animals with engaging animations and illustrations.

NxtApp 4 Kids is recognized by iApps For Teachers, leading site where teachers, educators, or parents could come to see reviews of the top learning apps.

Jason Boyer, lead reviewer for iApps For Teachers writes: "When it comes to young children learning with an interactive device, the temptation to play visually appealing games can be quite overwhelming. So, how do you allow your child or student the opportunity to play those visually driven games, and learn? Enter NxtApp 4 Kids.

Upon launch your child will be presented with some catchy music, a main menu, and the ability to select the stage they see fit. These include Add One, Subtract One, Add, Subtract, and Add or Subtract. ICON, LLC has thrown in a easter egg of sorts as well. When the child touches the animals located on the main menu, they will be greeted with the animals unique sound.

Each game essentially has the same goal, put the correct number where it belongs. Though the games act in the same manner, each teaches a different concept. The child is given a set of numbers, and 10 questions to answer. It is their job to complete the given set. For example "2, 4, __, 8". NxtApp 4 Kids will have your child adding and subtracting the problems as fast as they can. This of course is mental math at its best. How fast can they complete the problem? With enough practice, they will get better. NxtApp 4 Kids keeps the child's past score to make sure of that. Some of the fun is in the smaller details of this application. When a number is typed into the placeholder, the animal holding the card will make a sound.

When it comes to mental math fun for children, I think NxtApp 4 Kids has all of the proper ingredients. The visuals, and sounds compliment the structure of a well built application. Your student is sure to have a good time trying to keep the high score in the classroom."
