Love to Count (4+) by Pirate Trio is an educational application for the iPhone and iPad, designed for children aged from 4 to 7.

Aimed at introducing maths to your child as an enjoyable and rewarding activity, this app creatively demonstrates the idea of numbers being the indicators of order, time, weight and quantity, enhancing their natural urge to find order in the world of numbers and shapes.

Love to Count by Pirate Trio helps teach and perfect such skills as:
- knowing the sequence of numbers from 1 to 10
- counting up and down
- understanding the relationship between numbers (1,2,3…) and ordinals (first, second, third…)
- adding and subtracting
- making 10
- learning halves, quarters and thirds; recognition of symmetrical division
- recognizing left from right.

Parents are provided with a tracking screen which is helpful for evaluating child’s progress. The logging system allows the app to be used by more than 1 child without loosing their scores and rewards given for correct answers.

Love to Count by Pirate Trio aims to encourage your child to discover and understand maths, rather than learn it by heart. Solving these logical puzzles will play an important part in your child's development and help build their confidence at this early stage of schooling.

Love this Love to Count App

I think this is a wonderful app for My child with special needs who is a visual learner. I love that you can touch objects while counting and the object makes a sound when you click on it. Three suggestions I have are to improve the app are to make the touch button for the correct answer a bit more sensitive. When I pressed the correct button it did not always accept the answer. Another suggestion was to add some written instructions on the parts where you move a number of items down to (for instance, make a longer necklace). I was confused at first. I didn't realize you had to move the object down to the line to make the correct length of object and last, written instruction on the dominoes to let the child know the purpose is matching. If not for these three suggestions, I would have rated the app 5 stars but a terrific app, nonetheless!

Helps Children to Love to Count

This is a great app for teaching 1-10 number sense. It has a pirate storyline and theme. The app features 10 games that are continually recycled in an interesting and engaging way. The games are thoughtfully designed to be ever so slightly increasing in challenge as the number of tasks completed increases from 1-700. There are also prizes to be collected along the way. This is done in a subtle way as to not overpower the game with gaming, but to keep the focus on learning. This app has just the right amount of themes and rewards to be interesting to children, while providing them with great learning opportunities. This is a must have preschool app for teaching 1-10 number concepts.

No Sound

There is no sound on this app. I'm not sure if this is a glitch or not, since there is a spot to adjust the volume - but it doesn't do anything. This does not work for the targeted age range whatsoever. How is a young child who doesn't know how to read supposed to know what the instructions are? I feel totally ripped off.
