Have you forgotten most of your algebra? Algebra Touch will refresh your skills using touch-based techniques built from the ground up for your iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch.

Say you have x + 3 = 5. You can drag the 3 to the other side of the equation.

Enjoy the wonderful conceptual leaps of algebra, without getting bogged down by the tedium of traditional methods.

"With this app, the author has successfully made algebra beautiful. I really wish this app existed when I was studying algebra 25 years ago." -

Drag to rearrange, tap to simplify, and draw lines to eliminate identical terms.

Create your own sets of problems to work through in the equation editor, and have them appear on all of your devices with iCloud.

Current material covers:

Simplification, Like Terms, Commutativity, Order of Operations, Factorization, Prime Numbers, Elimination, Isolation, Variables, Basic Equations, Distribution, Factoring Out, Exponent Product Rule, and Exponent Quotient Rule.

I like the app, but I would love for it to have more of an explanation of how to do the algebra. It's fine to watch it being done for you, but I would love more on why.

Great app

It's a great app for what it does. I would like to see an update that adds exponents and parentheses. I was going to give it 4 star for that reason but since the app doesn't advertise those features it wouldn't be fair to remove a star. Another addition that would be nice is some sort of in app memo pad for you to work a question on your own. The app won't let you make a mistake which is great for the app but when your actually tested you may make a mistake and not be able to recognize it.
To summarize until you can do problems like x^2(4ab*b)+5a*x=n it will be a 3-4 star app. Until then it's a very pretty but very basic algebra learning tool.
