I'm an American who recently saw some British "Countdown" episodes and wanted to try my hand at it. It's fun, although the computer comes up with numbers answers I can't imagine a human could. But maybe I overestimate myself or underestimate humanity.
Excellent app and developer!
Bought added features immediately. Suggested app features and got them within a week! Recommended all around.
Love this app, buuuut...
Changed my relationship with math (no small feat), *but* has a very annoying glitch. Originally wasn’t sure, but after playing a thousand practice rounds, am totally sure: many times when I press “submit” it tells me I did “no calculation”, even when I got it right. Soooo frustrating! I take great care to make sure I don’t press the wrong button, but it still does it. About once every twenty-or-so times. It wonks up my percentages. (Which I don’t really care about, still have 133%, but makes me wonder what it is *really*.) Still my fave to play and keep my skills sharp. If you haven’t watched the BBC show “Countdown”, do so. Funny, irreverent, and smart. (Pause it and play along!)
