Weily Apps Announces Launch of Visual Math App for iPad

MORAGA, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 1, 2011) - Weily Apps, a leading developer of engaging, casual learning apps for the iPhone and iPad, today announced the launch of its Visual Math App, available on iTunes, Apple's App Store.

Visual Math is an adaptive iPad app that is designed to help 4-6 year olds master six topics of elementary math through the dynamic presentation of a diverse range of visual math activities. Research shows that more than half of children learn best through pictorial images. The designers at Weily Apps integrated this data and produced an app that kids love and is aligned with national core math standards for kindergarten.

Visual Math is NOT a series of repetitive worksheets brought to the iPad tablet -- it is a rich, fun, interactive experience. Feedback, animated intros and a range of background themes are just some of the features that promote varied game play that keep the game fresh and engaging.

The game provides learning that adapts to each player. Visual Math contains six categories of questions that are presented in random rounds of twelve. Players drag, select, listen, arrange and watch. Game rounds are separated with funny musical interludes. With multiple levels of challenge, children advance based on their mastery of each topic rather than by simply spending time on the app.

Visual Math delivers even more fun awarding points for each correct answer given. Points can then be applied to a fantastic bonus activity: making 'BadgeArt' collages. In this activity players create digital collages with images that they select from Visual Math and from photos already on their iPad. Kids can save, email or share their BadgeArt on Twitter or Facebook.

Parents can monitor performance on the Progress Page, which tracks categories, rounds and cumulative activity by topic.

Other Features of the Visual Math Level 1 App include:

  • Audio cues for non-readers
  • Any number of players
  • Beautiful HD design
  • Delightful sound effects
  • 120 questions per game, unlimited variations

Visual Math costs $3.99 to download in the App Store. Customers can expect updates and enhancements to the game, free of charge.
