Creating flexible word games with Futaba
“Word games have long been heralded as a way of stimulating the brain, improving language skills and helping increase concentration and logic, and Futaba is no exception to this…. ” -AvatarGeneration

“We had the pleasure of using Futaba in a year 1 class last week. As the school does not yet have iPads we showed the teachers and Principle what they can do with iPads. We featured Futaba and had the entire class join in. In this particular case we only had 1 iPad between about 20 students so we had the Ipads display up on the projector. We had the teacher controlling the iPad in practice mode and had the students shout out what they thought the answer was. They absolutely loved it”. – Guy Jackson

★★★★★ iPad App of the Month – Tennessee Board of Regents (March 15, 2012)
“What a great app!” – Robbie K. Melton, Ph.D. Associate Vice Chancellor, Academic Affairs, eLearning

Texas Computer Education Association (TCEA ) recommended iPad App ( June 2012)

The Future of Classroom Technology – February 26, 2013
“Futaba Classroom Games for Kids is a shining example of the growing trend. It is truly one-of-a-kind; the content is customizable from skill level to uploadable graphics, and up to 4 players can play at one time…. At $5.99 the app may seem like an expensive download but it could very well take the place of a range of different educational apps that are currently being used by your young learner. It also means that students can share one iPad instead of needing their individual device, which we all know are costly. For those that are teaching their kids at home, Futaba Classroom Games can also replace expensive homeschool materials.”
