Why we picked this?

Attendance will help you become a better student. You’ll need to set up your weekly schedule by entering your subjects and their corresponding attendance limits, and assigning them to days of the week. Then simply mark each class as present, absent, or cancelled as the week progresses. Attendance can suggest how many upcoming classes you need to attend to meet your attendance limits, and generate weekly attendance reports.

You’re in college and need help keeping track of attendance.

You don’t attend college.

Swipe to slide numbered tiles in order to make them all zeroes in Zero+.

Fans of logic-based puzzle games.

Why we picked this?

The basic gameplay mechanics in Zero+ are simple enough. You must slide positive and negative numbered tiles around the board in order to achieve zero. The first few levels consist of just ones and twos, but things get crazy pretty quickly when large numbers and new kinds of modifier tiles enter the mix. Also, keep in mind that tiles won’t stop sliding unless they run into something. The game includes a total of 120 levels.

You think math is fun.

You get frustrated easily since you can’t skip levels.
