As far as the quality of educational content, it's great. However, the constant and overwhelming music playing in the background is unnecessary, and there is no way to turn it off. If you turn your device volume off, then you can not hear the instructions. I have reached out to the developers multiple times (e-mail and phone) and received no response. So communication is not great either. If this problem could be fixed, it would be a five-star app.

*Needs to run on a tablet, not phone, I made that mistake at first. Once I got it working on a tablet it's a FANTASTIC app for developing a solid number sense for kids learning counting, base ten system, arithmetic, and more. Actually helps kids develop a true understanding of numbers and base ten. My four year old loves it. I just wish it had a version I could pay for instead of having to get it through his preschool.

My daughter used this program on her iPad when she was younger and she loved it. Now at just turned 8, she was recently skipped ahead a year in school from 2nd to 3rd. She can do complicated math problems in her head in seconds. She's outgrown it, but I still credit this app with her love of math today and I am so glad she got to use it when she was a toddler. I'm happy to see it on Android now. I can't recommended this enough for parents of toddlers and preschoolers.
