Endless Numbers

A number app that goes on and on ...

Endless Numbers, from developer Originator Inc., opens to a carrossel full of numbers to be chosen by swiping or tapping. The selected number word is narrated as the reader matches the image via dragging. The reader is then asked to touch the monster's eye, activating the adventure. For number one, the word is "unicycle" and the cute monster rides (or tries to) the unicycle before falling off. The narrator says, "It is hard for little blue to ride a unicycle because it has only one wheel."

A number adventure awaits young learners in this follow-up app to the popular Endless Alphabet & Endless Reader. Adorable monsters scatter the numbers after the user taps. Young readers can then interact with the numbers by dragging the letters to the tracings. The numbers are then asked to match numbers 1,2, & 3 to the screen before being offered a car with a 3-eyed monster.

The biggest issue for this entire series of apps is that the free versions have a very small amount of content. Parents and educators need to purchase the full versions via in-app purchases or by buying 'school versions' of each of these apps to get the full content all at once without any hidden surprises. This is especially important to note, for institutional use by schools and libraries.
