Some of the best comments:
“The graphics and animation were very eye-catching for my kindergartener” - “This is a fantastic app for kindergarten math. It will definitely capture and hold a child's attention for some time” - “Comprehensive syllabus and detailed reporting also available, as well as a terrific way to personalize the content of activities.” - “This is a fun and extensive app; colorful and engaging! Making early math fun” - “I loved that I could customise the syllabus to my son's ability and current level and that I could set daily goals for him to achieve.” - “It covers a very broad range of math perfect for early learners.”
Although the reward system idea is great it is limited “only 4 animals he or she can win.” -
“in-app distractions like other apps and social media links so a child can play independently” - In some cases the child need to read the question …a bit hard for the age group: “There are some questions in which the student is required to read an English word such as - "Yes", "No", "greater than", "smaller than", "equal to". I think its fair to say that most kingergarten children are not yet able to read so those questions may be too advanced.”

I think Splash Math Kindergarten is a great investment for any teacher or parent who has a child ready to learn Kindergarten math. The app is bright and fun for children and will keep them entertained while learning. The parent or teacher can also tailor the app to each child by selecting exactly what you want the child to practice. This one is a must have!
