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...

My daughter loved math before having to use this app for school. Now she doesn't even want to do her math homework which she used to enjoy. I pray the makers of this program do not actually have children. If they do they should be ashamed of themselves for thinking phrases like "you know you want to be better and faster" and "don't worry about understanding, just memorize it" should ever be told to 5 and 6 yr olds. I was sitting with my daughter during the first time she used this app and watched as she showed significant anxiety with the insane emphasis on timing. I've never seen her respond that way to anything before. Now I don't think my kid should be shielded from reality. I get that she will be timed in school. And I don't think every kid should be constantly told how great they are or get prizes for their work. That's not life. But why can't a first grader be able to enjoy math? This app takes the opposite approach and boldly (and blandly) introduces mature academic measures of fast vs slow and good vs bad into very young minds. My husband is an elementary math teacher this app made him disgusted. He feels it's another example of trying to teach to standardized tests. If this is in fact true, congratulations Xtra Math, you've helped our education system stoop to a new low.

This app has taught me a lot of stuff that is now easy for me. In 3rd grade, I was really struggling with my math because, it was all multiplication and division. I was at a public school in 2nd and we were just starting to learn about multiplying. We didn’t learn division yet, and then I changed to a private Montessori school. And they were already doing like 4th and 5th grade math, so of course I was clueless!! But I was glad to get outta that public school. Now, I’m in a public school in 4th grade, and my teacher made us do XtraMath. And curious little me was wondering, “What is XtraMath?!” So, I tried it, I hated it. I didn’t realize that slowly over time, I was getting better multiplication!! And one day, I passed! I was so unbelievably happy and proud of myself!! Then I started division, I hated it, but eventually I got better and passed! Now I’m on the faster multiplication and I’m close to passing!! So thank you so much XtraMath for changing my life for the better! So anyway, long story short, BUY this app! It helps your child with adding, subtracting, multiplication, and division. It may not be that fun, but it’s worth it!! So buy this app for your kid, it totally works, I promise! Have a good day! 🤗🤗🤗

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.

I almost didn't buy this app after reading a lot of the negative reviews. There IS timed math on this app and it did really stress my kids out. I had talks with them about how they need to practice working under pressure, because there are lots of times in life where you have deadlines and you have to remain calm, or you will screw up...not to mention timed math tests. I also told them that this is the perfect way to practice working under pressure because this app really doesn't do anything. It's not for a grade, just for practice. After our talk, my kids turned a new leaf and learned how to work calmly while having a timer. They now love the app and want to learn what comes next after they complete a program. There also is a setting where you can turn off the timer, but I think it's good for my kids and we keep it on. In summary, we love it and it's helped my kids learn life skills and not just math.
