Ten star if I could 5/5
This is great! I’m learning so much! It will say your done when you are. You have to go on it everyday!
Allows child to delete their account! 2/5
My daughter has accidentally deleted her account twice! And both times, I’ve had to re-add her as a new child, losing all of her progress! Honestly, why are kids even able to have access to that option??? She was learning a lot from this app, but what’s the point if we have to keep starting over?! Will be looking for a different program that has better safeguards.
Update: received a response from the developer, who said the problem was probably due to the app remembering the parent log-in, so my daughter can sign in to my account without a password, but apparently she does not even need to do that to delete her account. All she needs to do is click on the student sticky, then on the next screen (the student sign in screen), on the top right, it says edit. Clicking edit allows the student to delete the account. That should not be an option at all under the student account, regardless of whether the app remembers the parental password, especially since there doesn’t seem to be a way to fix that (logging out does not really log you out, since it’ll just let you click back on your name without having to re-renter log-in details). Not sure how to make the app forget the details without going to the iPad account and website password settings and deleting the log-in details for the app, which may or may not work, and would probably also delete the info from my Mac and iPhone, since all three are linked...
The Zero button did not work 3/5
Please fix this the zero button did not work like it was stuck for 3 seconds before I could answer I kept tapping and that’s why I got a few wrong most of them were my fault but the zero did not work and sometimes the the double digits don’t work to.
Anxiety time should be the name for dis 1/5
I HATE how it’s rushing u and I HATE IT it’s making my self bang my head into anything so DONT RUSH PEOPLE U DONT NEED TO BE FAST AT DIVISION AND ECT !
Frustrates my son more than it helps 2/5
The practice problems are fine but the quiz is doing more harm than good.
This was a waste of my money
Are you kidding me? 1/5
5$ for that?!
Do NOT buy save your money 1/5
I would have never spent the money knowing it’s the same as a desktop app.
It was easier to use the free website then to download and use this app.
I hope they take the $5 spent to make this app better because this is crap.
BOO it’s not good at all 1/5
My daughter loved her math until she got this app every assignment your grade got an F minus because she would always end up crying doing extra math😡😡😡😡😡😡😡
Number keyboard 2/5
We wish there was a way to change the number keyboard as my son isn’t used to the keyboard starting with 1 at the bottom. If the idea is to be fast it would be nice to have an option they are used to in the “real world”. Most computers are no longer desktops so they don’t have a number keyboard. Children are used to using the number keys on top of the keyboard. It would be nice to have the option to change the keyboard.
Really fun 5/5
This app is making my kids really smart 🤓🤓
Great application for kids 5/5
By Robert Rydr
First let me say that Parent5234 seems to coddle their children too much and is obvious by the review given. The teacher on screen is a guide to whether the child answered correctly or not and can be turned off if a child cries about a computer image on screen, the world is not all cupcakes and rainbows, wait till that child gets a job and has a boss telling them what to do. Second thing, yes the app is timed, but is by no means prohibits the child from learning, if your child is slow, then work with them instead of ignoring the true problem, your kid. Okay, now for my personal review. My 3rd grader is learning what is demanded of kids in 3rd grade and she is doing great. She may struggle, which is shown on her progress report, but it is all about practice. The progress reports are great because it shows their improvements. I am extremely satisfied with this application that I will now set up an account for my kinder child. That is the other positive things about this app, it has settings for different grade levels. Customer support is also a plus when questions come up.
Ok so not the worst but... 2/5
My teacher uses this app to get us to do we’ll XtraMath.The only thing is every time I do really good in XtraMath I don’t get a good score.When I do really bad in XtraMath I get a great score.So it’s really frustrating to do it when you don’t know to do bad on it or to do good?!It just makes no sense though I do get why we should doit!On that note I got to do XtraMath!
Dumb and smart but dumb 1/5
Because they don’t help you they correct you but they don’t show you how to help you
THIS APP IS TRASH🤬😡 1/5
This stupidity level is high because this app has a 2.6 rating🤬🤬🤬fix it but it won’t change my mind🤬🤬🤬🤬
By Bigbubba is big
Stated using it as a student and every time I tap the stupid keypad it won’t pick up. I know I’m better at math and I know these facts, but because of this stupid app I can’t master it.
This app for busy parents is horrendous! 1/5
If you have a iPhone with the latest IOS update, run as fast as you can from this app. I just spent 30 mins attempting to install and verify my kids account.
Hate it 1/5
This app is the worst there is no fun and games for kids
Amazing app 5/5
This app taught me all the multiplication tables in 4th grade and division as well I think this is a great learning tool for students and I recommend it to many people
I hate this)=( 1/5
This makes me not want to math ever again it’s very boring only color is the smileys and you don’t get anything after very very bad don’t suggest this to anyone except who I hate
Recent update makes app unusable 1/5
By Jason ... a
Please correct the app, recent update is unusable. Will not load, will not log in, completely useless.
By fin Shark
This app is good thanks XtraMath you are good at this it is 4.99$
Horrible approach to learning math 1/5
Xtramath is an abysmal stress bomb of an app that seems to serve a primary purpose of discouraging a genuine appreciation for math. I initially thought the horrid reviews must be from parents who never challenge their kids, and that my high-performing math loving competitive child would appreciate this app. NO. I was completely wrong. My child hates it and this was the first time in his youthful education that I’ve heard him literally say, “Dad, I hate this. This app stresses me out. I don’t want to do math because of it”. I was shocked and did my best to encourage him to press on. My wife is an engineer and my background is econ / finance. Point being is we understand the mission critical role math plays in long-term success. However Xrtramath offers a short path to discouraging a sincere interest in the subject. We will be reverting to flash cards regardless of how much the school may encourage the use of this waste-of-money app as the last thing I want is for my child to lose interest in math.
Flawed, “Race the Teacher” needs to go away 2/5
So much of this app focuses on the “Race the Teacher” part. Instead of giving kids time to figure out the problems, they rush to hit buttons and end up with wrong answers, and learning nothing. It’s too bad.
Lousy Sign In Procedure 1/5
By Honest Parent Reviewer
The developers of this app were asleep at the wheel when they created it. A young child should not be required to enter an email address and a lengthy password every single time they access the app. Why can’t the child simply tap on the program icon on the iPad screen to open the app and start the next lesson, as occurs with all good children’s apps.
Why cant you make it fun? 2/5
There was a time in the 2 grade my teacher said we are gonna do something new and I thought it was gonna be fun but when he showed us and started doing it I got bored the second I saw it I kinda wish for you guys to put something new I saw the other comments and it said the same thing as this make it fun but you said (developer) we don’t wanna make any distraction so it can make you more focus and learn better. But when I started to play for a long time I wasn’t really enjoying it anymore. All there is, is the same thing every single time so please do something and put something fun in it!
Great App 5/5
My grandson’s first grade teacher used this app. He enjoyed using it and advanced many times ahead of his class so I contacted creator to request more math problems be added. I was always promptly provided return email and information I needed. My grandson ASKS to do XtraMath on the car ride to school, sitting and waiting for appointments. He just started second grade and we will continue using app regardless of if his teacher uses it or not.
I child was frustrated by the keypad it did not reflect his knowledge
Not a huge fan 2/5
After reading the reviews it’s clear what the issue is. Something as simple as removing the timer would make parents/users enjoy the app, and yet the developers clearly have no interest in doing so. There are better apps out there in my opinion. This one isn’t as interactive and fun. Learning for children should be fun! And it’s always wise to listen to your customers wants.
Not worth it 👎🏾👎🏾👎🏾👎🏾👎🏾👎🏾👎🏾👎🏾👎🏾👎🏾 1/5
By RK Castillo
My daughter’s teacher told her to do it but every time she cries and she now hates math more then ever and she hasn’t learned anything. This was not worth 5 dollars
Delete this garbage off the internet 1/5
My child hates this because he does not like its pushy behavior by just throwing math facts right in your face forcing you to answer the question:(.
Love it! 5/5
I have my children practicing their math facts over the summer and they love this app! They are in 5th, 6th and 7th grade. Like some of the other reviews said, I can see how it would be frustrating for younger kids, but my older ones love it. I teach 5th and 7th grade math and it’s so difficult for students to work on fractions and other advanced concepts when they have to spend a lot of time figuring out their basic facts. They get frustrated because math homework takes them so long. I never understood the need for speed with math facts until I started teaching. Now I do and this app is incredibly helpful!
This made me wanna drop out
Love this!! 5/5
We absolutely love this app and are very grateful for the ease of use and how it’s made both of my girls want to work on math facts again! Thank you so much for putting out such a wonderful app for kids! :-)
I would like it if you would make sure no two simaler equastions are together it
It is rigged. I press a nummber and it says that I put in another number. This just bad I hate it
Not fun and never taught me anything 1/5
This is from a child perspective and yes I am 9 but this game never taught me anything and it is not fun because they rush everything on children without giving them a chance to learn the subjects that they are working on.
Best program 5/5
We have tried various apps for our son to learn his facts, but this app is the most successful. We were introduced through the school but continue to use over the summer. Great job!
I don't like it 1/5
By Swarit Sai
It stresses me
By non math liker
I did not like it at all.
Love this app! 5/5
My daughter loves this app! Her math skills are improving each day!
May you add this? 2/5
I have a question, may you add addition, subtraction and division.
0 if I could 1/5
By cool Rea
This game is totally bad I hate it my teacher said we could do it and now my mom makes me do it all the time the reason I hate it is the response time is way to fast we changed it to 6 seconds but it changed back after I got past multiplication
This game is soooooooo bad!!!!!!!!!!😾😾😾😾😾👿👿👿👿🤬🤬🤬😡😡🤯🤯😾😾😾😾😾😾😾😾
I HATE MATHHU 1/5
MATH IS NOT COOL I HATE ITTTTT
What a wonderful app for educators 5/5
I use Xtramath ALL the time with my students. I run a tutoring company and Xtramath is hands down the most efficient way to solidify basic arithmetic facts with my students. I often use it as a warm up at the start of each session just to get the mental gears running which gives me a few minutes to gather my materials and plan out what we’ll be doing later, all while they can slowly but sure get their facts down. I even use it with older students in JHS and beyond if I feel they need help with facts. It saves me time and effort not finding/creating fact sheets and it’s more dynamic than simply having them fill out addition or multiplication charts as it emphasizes speed and accuracy of the fats that they struggle with. Not to mention their analytics are extraordinarily useful as well giving me a solid insight to their progress. 10/10
To the developer:I hate XtraMath because the Race The Teacher I DON’T WANT RACE THE TEACHER TO BE IN XTRAMATH anyways I’m On Multiplication right now the Race The Teacher Should NOT be on Multiplication DEVELOPER FIX THIS
To the readers:Anyone who says to me this is helpful thanks Because all the race the teacher does is Rush you I agree with that person who said It rushes you XtraMathsux unfortunately I don’t know what ru saying I’m sorry can u say what you mean.
3rd grade teacher 5/5
By 3rd grade rocke
Loves this app. Yes, learning facts is frustrating or boring but we have to do it! Much better than expecting my students parents to do flash cards.
