My son can only count till 13...so I'd love to try it, but probably wont be codes left by the time I get home. PM me if you can spare an extra, and I'll be sure to post a review.

I used HXTLKJTJPW9W. I'll let my son play it for a while and give you some feedback/reviews. I'm always looking for some educational games for him to play.
Thanks!

Perhaps a few adults need to brush up on counting skills? Well, the good news is that this one is only 99 cents and worth every penny...

I must say that the overall feel of this app is very polished. Very easy menu navigation, something my son had no problem picking up and playing(hard part is just pulling it away from his "death grip"). The Only thing I would like to see implemented In this app is maybe an option for your child to guess the answer(multiple choice) or the ability for the player to "Speak their answer". Other than that I was very impressed with this app & would love to see more in this genre. This genre of games/apps is a goldmind since my son asks for my iPhone or itouch to play when we are out; I rather my son play games that are educational than ones that are purely for entertainment. If you have anymore questions, feel free to ask.

Thanks for the great suggestions and feedback! I'm glad your son likes the game!

We've been considering adding options to "count and answer" as opposed to "count along".... just as you suggested (in a multiple choice format). Other apps focus on just "number identification" in the multiple choice format, so I do think this would be adding something new to the market.

We're hard at work on our next game for young children... it's a fun block stacking game that helps reinforce knowledge of colors while teaching spatial skills.

Thanks again!
