    "A great app for teaching math to pre-K children. It's much less expensive than Kumon but just as effective, and kids love using it. It will help your child get ahead and is easier to use than flashcards. The one drawback is that it hasn't been updated in some time, and iPad users might have trouble getting it work on their device."
