  • Anxiety, fear, competition-find another way to teach

    This app is inappropriate and is a lazy teachers way to force repetition. It kills confidence, causes anxiety and scores the child with big red x’s, green checks or smiley faces. To make things worse, it gives you a ding (just like a slot machine) for a correct answer and a loud buzzer for an incorrect answer. I am really rethinking my child’s education if this is how the curriculum is practiced.
  • I wish there is 0 star so I can rate this trash app with zero.

    What made me mad is that you have to agree to the consent let xtramath use your child's data, otherwise you are not able to use the app even you already paid. So why don't you tell us before we buy it? I am curious which moron developed this app? Xtramath you have no right to get any data from my child even you declared that you don't sell info. I am open to discuss this issue publicly. To all parents, save money and don't waste time on this trash app.

    A waste of money!!! The website works better and is free. The keys are too small to us on an iphone.

    We love this app but is there a way to use it on other devices without paying 4.99 for each device? I paid for it using my iPhone not realizing my daughter can’t get it on her tablet without paying again
  • DO NOT BUY

    Tests your speed, not the math. In the two years I had to do this, almost everyone in the class had some sort of nervous break down at some point over this. Super stressful. I’ve seen the developer saying you can change the time, but he teacher don’t know or won’t let you. Also, choose new teacher images. The teachers look happy when you get it wrong. It tests your typing speed, not your math. There was a girl in our class, she was great at math, but she has a disability, and cannot quickly and accurately press the buttons, so she almost failed math that year.

    Love how a 5 star rating AFTER my initial 1 star made it in but my rating did not. This app is a confidence destroyer.
  • Wonderful custom options!

    I’ve had the same complaints that others have had but now the custom option gives a little more time to those still working on their math facts and found the 3second time frame terrifying. My 8 yr old daughter knows her math facts but not quickly and the 3seconds discouraged her, making her want to give up and she said she “felt stupid.” The custom 6seconds allows her to practice without continued failure. Thank you so much for adding in this vital component. If you are considering this app, be sure that your child has strong number sense FIRST. This year we begin multiplication (we homeschool) so fast recollection of addition and subtraction is necessary. Thank you to Xtra math for listening to the reviews and making an even stronger program to assist those who don’t operate under the shortest of times.
  • Needs an App Designer

    Well Designed interfaces and visuals would turn negative attitudes towards this app upside down. Developers, if you were a child would you think this app was exciting? Would you want to spend 30 mins to an hour per day interacting with this? A designer can help. I design interactive experiences for a living and would love to help you turn Xtra Math into a tool that kids and parents will love. Contact me if interested!

  • This is a bad app

    The UX for this app is really bad. My kid is fighting the technology more than the math problems. Also, it is designed for right handed kids. A lefty has to cover up the whole problem to type on a backwards set of numbers. I’m disappointed in my school district for adopting this app.
