Sums [lite] - Handwriting Recognition Maths Game

Hey everyone, quick announcement of a small game I did: WriteAnswer: Sums [lite] (App Store link).

It lets you practice sums by writing the answer. A bit of a brain training type thing. Very simple, but I think it's fun and addictive. If people like it I'd like to release a full version with lots of gameplay types and stats tracking, so I'll be grateful for any feedback I receive.

I'm especially interested in whether the recognition technology works well for you. The occasional error is probably inevitable but if there are any two numbers that it constantly gets confused I'd like to know.

Hi there,

I just got it and tried it out a few times. For the most part it is pretty solid at recognizing the numbers. It did mistake 3 for 7 a couple of times and 4 for 21 once.

That's interesting, thanks. Never seen the 3/7 problem before.
