My Review:
I'm always ram sacking through the App Store to find great apps that can not only be fun but very educational for my daughter. This time, Mithun Jhawar, a member of StudyPad, suggested a workbook app that they developed to help first grade students to learn and practice math concepts introduced throughout the school year.  Being the age of the iPads and iPhones, the new generations get to take advantage of a fun interactive way to learn and enjoy math. It doesn't have to make you run for the hills anymore!!
Based on my experience while testing Splash Math, it took me about two hours to finish the entire Chapter 1 on addition. This includes 6 sub-chapters and more than 200 problems that range from easy to hard. It is safe to say that the lifetime of Splash Math for your kiddos is at least one full year.
In order to balance studying with playing, Splash Math includes a fun reward system; when your kiddo finishes a problem set, the app rewards them with an adorable sea creature which can be kept in a virtual aquarium to play with (hence the name Splash Math). This makes it possible for the app to be used all year long without boring your kiddos.  Because Splash Math is designed to work properly even after a long period of time, the app needs to be able to track how far each user has worked through. After researching Splash Math, I learned that they anonymously backup these data to their servers (without sending any personal information), so that they could provide a restore feature for the parents in case there's an data loss issue. You can always turn off the backup switch within the settings menu.  Splash Math also offers to send parents, a weekly e-mail report detailing how your kiddo has progressed through the app. The level of details in the report is exceptional, and I believe most teachers would benefit a lot from this. I think it it a really awesome feature, last thing I want to do is accidentally delete something my daughter has worked hard on. Not only that it breaks it down for you and focuses on what needs to be worked on specifically for your child. If your kiddo is currently in elementary school, I highly recommend the Splash Math series. They currently have apps from Grade 1 to Grade 5. Based on my experience in trying out the Grade 1 app, I think this series offers the best math workbook apps in the App Store. Try it yourself and see the great value of Splash Math. My daughter really enjoys it just having fun and learning along the way!
