Bugs and Buttons 2 on the App Store on iTunes. (currently free)
It has been awhile since I have had a chance to blog about any app deals. I am back with a fabulous freebie today, but Little Bit Studio has made the latest version of their award winning Bugs series of early math apps for the iPhone and iPad absolutely free (Normally, $2.99). This series of apps is stunning in its graphics and design. It is just visually so appealing. Don’t be alarmed by the bug theme, both girls and boys will enjoy these apps.
You will love the adaptive play which increases the difficulty level based on mastery of skills. There are 18 engaging games to play (translate “learning”), and achievement stickers are used to encourage and reward learning. I love that there are multiple user profiles which is wonderful when you have more than one child in the family. There are also 11 different language settings for you to use which includes both traditional and simplified Chinese.
What parent doesn’t groan when they contemplate drilling math skills? These apps covers basic counting to early fractions, currency, time, simple addition and subtraction, comparison, measurement, patterns, sequencing, sorting and problem solving. With these apps, math becomes a perfect blend of study and play. Just like Mary Poppins says, “A spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down.” If you loved the apps by Duck Duck Goose, you will love these apps by Little Bit Studio.
