Maths apps are often dreadful and although this does fall into the category of ‘doing arithmetic fast’ it’s actually good!

The beauty of this app is that you’re not actually answering questions, you’re evaluating whether written statements are correct or wrong. This means there are only two buttons to worry about pressing and the 60 questions will fly by. You gain points for getting it right and lose for getting it wrong and your total points for the round are calculated by a neat little formula that’s explained in the app. Even the points scoring includes some maths!

I’d prefer the correct and wrong buttons to be further apart but I’ve emailed the developer and the response I got was encouraging so here’s hoping that can change in an update.

I thoroughly recommend this app as it’s a change from the usual maths speed calculation apps and is incredibly intuitive to use.
