CardDroid Math Flash Cards
First published in summer 2010, this is still my most financially successful app. Total downloads across platforms exceed 150,000. CardDroid Math started as a simple multiple-choice math flash cards app with intelligently chosen multiple-choice options. Initially its unique feature was recorded children’s voices giving encouraging messages in response to correct answers. As the app landscape changed, I upgraded the app to offer multiple color schemes, multiple sound sets, and eventually tracking of missed questions, total practice time, and performance.
I also added simple games as rewards after getting a perfect score and added problem sets aligned to the Common Core education al standards being adopted by many states.

In 2014 I adapted CardDroid Math Flash Cards to run on the Amazon Fire TV (and later Android TV). Take a look at that project here.
