It’s natural to want your children to grow with grace and succeed in life. So often a solid education is the key to securing a happy future for your children. The new iTeacher iPhone app from Apps Dev Team makes fun, adjustable learning on-the-go a reality for parents and children alike. Help your children reach their potential and hone their skills with iTeacher.

Functionality:

Does your little one think math is for the monkeys? Tell them they’re right and hand them the iTeacher iPhone app. The iTeacher app walks children through a series of math equations in a fun, colorful environment populated with adorable monkeys, a sure way to keep them engaged. An on-screen tally records their answers; bright yellow bananas add up for all problems answered correctly, while a separate stack of banana peels will let them know if there is work to be done.

After answering ten addition, subtraction, multiplication and division problems correctly your young pupil will be rewarded with some game time. Choose from “Hens,” a Duck Hunt style game to enhance hand-eye coordination, or “Matchstick,” where the goal is to force your opponent to take the last matchstick standing. After playing for a few minutes iTeacher dutifully returns its young pupils to their lessons.

iTeacher will automatically focus on the areas where your student could use a little extra practice and populate problems accordingly. There is also an extremely thorough report functionality where you can track their progress and identify problem areas. I hope iTeacher expands their focus to include additional topics in the future.

Customization:

Customization begins on page one of iTeacher for iPhone. Press the “+” button in the upper right-hand corner to create a custom user profile for your child. For each profile you may choose a custom answer time to challenge your math whiz, upload a special picture for their avatar, add their name to the profile or come up with super-secret math solving code names, and adjust difficulties in the “Settings” area. Add a separate profile for each user to get the most out of this iPhone app.

The “Settings” area is what really makes this app shine. If your young one hasn’t learned division yet, simply disable division in iTeacher for the time being. Keep this app informative and challenging without discouraging your learning with custom problem settings.

Fun Factor:

Games, graphics and positive, constructive feedback make the iTeacher app more than a boring math app. Your children will appreciate the difference. Both iTeacher games are educational and fun at the same time. Your student will find themselves hustling to get ten correct answers to play a game where they will keep stretching their mind muscles. And who doesn’t love monkeys? I thought this iPhone app was cute and caught myself remembering some dormant math skills myself. Well done.

iTeacher iPhone app requires iOS 4.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
