What you should know:
Got a kid who's buggy for bugs? Got a kid who needs to practice math? This app gives science lovers a chance to combine both in one sitting.
Addition, subtraction, multiplication, and even a bit of division are covered, but the app's sweet spot is word problems. Insects sit at center stage, with questions like “An adult ladybug eats 20 aphids per day. How many were eaten over 3 weeks?” but at its heart, this is an old fashioned quiz, laid over nice looking bug imagery. Children use a scroll bar to answer questions and if they like a picture, they can add it to their camera roll for later viewing. They can also link to Wikipedia for extra bug trivia, or watch YouTube videos about Entomology, once they've answered enough questions correctly.
The app is virtually identical to a set of others from the same maker and there's no need to purchase them all. Pick the best interest match (cars, bugs, animals…) and rest assured that while the subject of the photography or videos will vary, the math itself is quite similar.
