Great concept for math practice, but not a perfect score.

Is It Any Good?

Nxt App 4 Kids is a good concept, but it has some features that may be bothersome to some kids. The onscreen keypad contains only the numerals 0 to 9, so if kids want to answer with 10 and above, they need to combine the numbers they see, which can be confusing for some kids. Also, the "c" button for clear and the "Go" button for finishing a sequence aren't set apart, so it's too easy for kids to hit one or the other when trying to answer, thereby inputting an incorrect answer or erasing their work inadvertently.

It's also a timed game, so kids who thrive on timed tests will like it; those who don't may find themselves frustrated by the time ticking away while taking in all the colorful graphics and the sounds (which can be turned off).

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
