  • Great extra abacus for Rightstart Math! Sep 7, 2014

    By MsMama2
    I love that we have the convenience of an extra abacus on our iPad for home and on the go! Thanks!
  • Great App But Needs An Update Nov 1, 2013

    By fay_jay
    This app is great; however, with the release of io7, one side of the abacus doesn't work correctly. This is understandable, but enough time has passed for them to fix problems. The owners probably didn't create the app, but this should have been resolved already. Otherwise the curriculum is perfect. While we're waiting on the fix, I use the Number Rack app. It would be nice to go back to using one app instead of two, though.
  • Just what I needed! Oct 4, 2012

    This app is wonderful. I use the Slavonic abacus extensively in my teaching and tutoring, so this is so great to demo what I am doing to show the students. My only wish is that there would be sound effects that would be similar to using a real abacus. This would help give sensory feedback, making the learning experience closer to the real thing. I have been recommending it widely.

    Love having the AL abacus as an app to use with my Kindergartener. For $2 though I wish it had audible clicks when moving and clearing the beads. I'll update to 5 stars when/if that update is made.
  • Works great Dec 16, 2010

    Works just like the real AL abacus. Would be nice if there was a small sound when moving or clearing beads.

    I really like the use of an abacus for math work! This is a great app for simple to more difficult math problems. My 1st and 4th graders both use it.

  • Worked great before but now it's not Oct 16, 2013

    We have the Righstart Mathematics curriculum and have used this app in the past on iPhones and iPod touches with no problems. I recently bought a new iPad and tried using it but half the abacus is not visible in landscape mode. I then tried on my iPhone and it has the same problem on there. Please fix this as it was working perfectly before.
  • Off to a bad start. Jan 20, 2011

    Why can't this download like all the other apps? This one requires that I log on to iTunes on my computer before I can download it onto the iPad. Unfortunately, I am logged in, but it still is telling me that I can download it after I log in on my computer. Any suggestions? Grrrrr.

    It won't respond to inputting data. When we try to enter anything, it freezes, then it may or may not move the beads 2-3 minutes later. I can't teach the program like this.

  • Bug... Sep 26, 2013

    By Elly5280
    Great idea to travel with our curriculum, however a bug makes only half the abacus viewable in landscape mode. Please fix and update!!
