Interesting post, I like your game and I am sure it has a lot of potential.

However, I think you are selling it wrong. You need to sell it as a game (right now it looks like a calculator) and need decide who you are selling it to. You can't aim it at both toddlers and math geniuses. It took me a long read of the description and look at the screenshots to know what it is about. Most people will give you 30 seconds and move on.

I would give it a new icon that is more fun & game like, a new descriptions, new screenshots and move to an IAP model and see where that takes you.

@DungeonPlunder - I use flurry.com for usage stats and appannie.com for sales stats.

@Arty Tales - That kind of mirrors other feedback I've got too. Thank you for the feedback, it's very helpful for planning my next update

@rikschennink - Glad you liked it!

@Appvism - Good luck with your app
