OctoPlus - rated 4 Stars by Heather H
iPad/iPhone - $0.99 to FREE
Bottom Line: A game-style app for basic addition fact fluency drill. Somewhat influenced by speed but not in an overwhelming way, this game is the best option I’ve seen for timed drill. Marketed for special needs, it’s even switch accessible and provides leveled practice for math addition facts 0-10, in a way much more appealing than timed tests.
