Review of Math Tables Karaoke


Math Tables Karaoke needs work, but it could be a great app with a little tweaking.

What I like best about the app are the quizzes., which can help students master the multiplication tables. The game includes three levels of play, each more difficult than the other. Kids will enjoy trying to beat their previous scores by correctly answering the problems faster each time they play.

What I don’t like about the game is that you can’t turn the music off. It tends to get extremely annoying after a while. I don't care for the learning mode either. It's also monotonous. Personally, I think the developers could leave this mode off the app and concentrate only on improving the games. There are much better ways for a child to learn the multiplication tables.

There is a feature that allows you to record your own voice (or your child's) and use it during the learning mode. However, I don't think this will entice kids to use this mode, either. 

For $ .99, this is a good buy and it will give your students practice in the multiplication tables. With a few tweaks, this app could be even better.
