Rocket Math

Rocket Math catches my attention for two reasons.  First, I think it has a lot of imagination.  The player is able to create his/her own rocket in their image.  Also the player is able to choose the rockets name.  Second, the game is also smart. In order to buy attachments for the rocket you have to get money, and in order to get money you have to solve math problems.  Another example is when you launch the rocket into space there are bubbles that have numbers in them and  “you have to get the ones your assigned to like evens or odds”.  Clearly, Rocket Math is one of the best math apps for kids like me playing to learn.

iScroll

iScroll is an amazing reading app for two reasons. One, its organized. It has a bookmark so wherever you left off it puts you there when you start again. Second, it has a store filled with fantastic books.  It gives one book for free and that book is called The Art Of War.  I thought it was amazing.   All in all, IScroll is far though the best reading app I have.
