Created with the help of public and private school teachers, as well as parents homeschooling their children, KidCalc helps teach crucial math skills to children ages 3-9 years. This timely Halloween themed version of KidCalc includes themed icons, such as jack-o-lanterns, haunted houses, bats, witches hats, engaging animations and even voice-overs by a child.

KidCalc’s puzzle games challenge children to complete a series of math problems. When a puzzle is complete children are rewarded with sounding trumpets and a full view of a picture they worked to reveal – one of 72 brightly colored still life and action photo that KidCalc includes.

KidCalc is four apps in one:

  • Animated math flash cards
  • Math drills
  • Counting games
  • Animated calculator

KidCalc’s animated calculator features an instant-replay button that replays animations and voice-overs for a previous math problem, also simulating button presses, providing children a powerful tool for learning math at their own pace. Some of KidCalc’s other user selectable themes include an outer space theme with planets, martians, UFOs, and moons, as well as a sports theme with basketballs, baseballs, footballs, and hockey pucks.

System Requirements:
* iPhone or iPod touch 3.0 or later

Pricing and Availability:
KidCalc 1.5 is only $1.99 (USD) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Education category.

A free version of KidCalc is also available. KidCalc LITE includes the full featured animated calculator and animated flash cards and puzzle games limited to the numbers 1-4.

Would you like KidCalc to speak your native language?  We would like that too!  We need your help.

Send us a digital audio recording of your child counting to 20.   Make sure that he/she is counting slowly and clearly with small pauses between each number, and also with a bit of excitement in their voice.  The native iPhone OS 3.0’s Voice Memos app can be used to record your son/daughter’s voice.  Email the recording to kidcalc@glinberg.com and please specify in the subject line the name of the native language being spoken in the recording. Be sure to include your child’s first name and age in your email, and if you would like, also include your home city, state, and country.

If your son’s/daughter’s voice is selected you will be contacted by email and given detailed instructions for capturing his/her voice, along with a list of words needed.  Names of children whose voices are included in KidCalc will be listed on the KidCalc Info screen, and their voices will be on thousands of iPhones and iPod touches, helping kids learn math in your native language around the world!  (All recording submissions become the property of Steve Glinberg.)
