Counting is one of the most important skills a child can learn. Little Digits is an adorable educational app that helps kids do that in a fun, intuitive way.
What does it do?
The touchscreen display detects how many fingers a tyke is holding up to the screen, and presents them with the appropriate corresponding numeral, fashioned as a cute moster, animation or animal. And in the same manner, several games introduce basic lessons in addition and subtraction.
Kids like to get their hands into everything, and that's why swiping and tapping on an iPad is such a natural thing for these curious creatures. Little Fingers plays on that propensity for touch and parlays into into something educational, not to mention whimsical and imaginative.
