NxtApp 4 KidsNxtApp 4 Kids is what the Washington Post called “the perfect app for mental math”. This app focuses on number sequences where the pupil has to complete the sequence. There are four numbers in each sequence and the missing number is usually either in the middle or at the end.

There are five stages to be completed in the app with varying levels of difficulty, with each stage focusing on a different skill: Add 1, Subtract 1, Add, Subtract, Add or Subtract. Pupils will find this app fun as it is set in a farmyard with background music (which can be turned off). There are also farm and animal sounds played as the pupil enters numbers to complete the sequence. This will prove to be entertaining learning.

This app costs €2.69 and  is available for iPhone/iPod, iPad. I’m not aware of it being available for Android devices.
