About LogIQids

You can download the app for free on Android and iOS devices, and it works equally well on tablet and phone-sized devices. The free app has enough included worksheets and brain-training games for your kids to start learning and see how they like the app. You can then buy extra worksheets to help them develop in the future.

LogIQids Review

What is LogiQids app?                                               

LogiQids delivers a daily training activity that takes up to 15 minutes. Its purpose is to improve kids' cognitive skills and logical reasoning through various categories of questions within a gamified structure.

The LogiQid app is a standalone product, but it is also linked to a broader platform available through its website. This platform includes LogiQids Aptitude Development Program and LogiQids Mental Aptitude Test. If your kids benefit from using the app, you could choose to look further into this.

Within the app, there are practice games which are colourful challenges that address different problem solving and reasoning skills. There are also the worksheets which form the main tasks within the app.

The app provides the means for teachers and parents to monitor children's progress and has incentives for kids to persist and progress.

What we love about LogiQids app.

LogiQids is fun to play. The games and worksheets are easy to fit into short play times but still feel like they are giving the player a good mental workout. 

The feedback from each question is excellent in its intention, although occasionally poorly phrased. The user can view the author's reasoning behind each question, whether they have answered it correctly or not. This lets players learn even when they have chanced on the correct answer or when they couldn't work it out.

When we look at some apps, for example, a math app, we can tell what skills and knowledge it addresses. When the benefits of an app's exercises are more subtle or less familiar, it is useful for the app to explain its objectives, something LogiQids does well.

The exercises and games in LogiQids each start with a summary of key benefits. For students, this is great to give them a sense of purpose; for teachers and parents, it is helpful to know what skill their child is currently developing.

The app links together community involvement, quality assurances, and user support through a link at the bottom of each worksheet. Here you can report a typo, ask a question, make a suggestion, or report an incorrect question. You might feel that error correction is a developer's responsibility, but this approach will help refine the product to everyone's benefit and, in many cases, reported errors are likely to be user misunderstandings.

What skills does it improve?

LogiQids describes itself as a brain-training platform that helps kids develop problem-solving, decision-making, spatial reasoning, and logic skills.

What age is it appropriate for?

LogiQids targets a broad age range and has worksheets suitable for kids from about 6 to 15. 

Is LogiQids app easy to use?

LogiQids has a clear design that makes it easy to navigate through the app. Kids can get to practice games or worksheets quickly when they open the app. 

How will students benefit?

LogiQids use gamification to encourage kids to carry out their daily training sessions. The gamification includes game-like graphics, the potential to earn gems to spend in the game, and the awards of achievements like certificates, streaks, and XP points.

If you are wary of brain-training apps due to the dubious claims made by many of them, LogiQids makes more measured promises. Its challenges get kids thinking about problems different from typical school-subject questions.

This is something teachers often try to do with projects, puzzles, and investigations. Sadly, time for such explorations is often limited in crowded school curricula, so LogiQids is a valuable supplement to school-based learning. It will help develop additional skills rather than duplicate school-based education.

How will teachers benefit?

The app lets users look at past worksheets, see the questions and look at the solutions. This feature will let teachers go through the worksheets with kids and talk to them about their thinking and approach to each puzzle.

How will parents benefit?

Parents want value for money, and, in the case of educational apps, this is gained from their kids using the app consistently and improving. 

LogiQids does a good job of encouraging kids to use it and then reporting back to parents and teachers. Alongside the other gamified elements of the app, the badges give kids achievable goals and a satisfying record of how far they have come. Kids can choose their goals and stretch their ability— such as completing a seven-day streak or achieving a 90% proficiency in a skill.

These same badges show parents how well kids have progressed. You'll be able to tell that kids have been working on the app and not merely spending time in it. Kids can't just start an exercise and come back to it later as the app will pause if it is minimised. 

What can LogiQids app improve on?

The app's onboarding process felt a little too intrusive, with there not appearing to be any reason for requesting as many details as it did. It asked for children's full names, including middle and last names and the device's telephone number. 

None of these should be required on a children's app. 

Furthermore, while it is not part of the sign-up process nor compulsory, the app promises to reward kids with a special surprise if they enter their date of birth. At the time of this review, the most recent update to the app promotes a feature where kids can share free worksheets when it is their birthday month.

When kids select this option, they will be asked for the day, month, and year of their birth. There is no reason an educational app should need the day for levelling purposes, and encouraging kids to enter personal details with a promise of a reward is not a good example to set. 

In short, while LogiQids is trying to create a personalised experience, it needs to take a more considered approach and filter out the unnecessary details. For example, the birthday month need not be one month beginning from the birthday but just the calendar month in which it falls.

Occasionally the choices of words used in LogiQids could confuse. A good example of this can be seen on the app's website, where you are asked to identify how many 'alphabets' are within a given symbol. 'Letters' would be the correct word and make the task less confusing at the outset. Similarly, one of the worksheets uses the word 'corners', which is not precise enough for the question asked.

The worksheets use diagrams which have either been taken from paper worksheets or digital images that are too low in resolution for modern devices. The black-and-white images often show indistinct, blurry, or pixelated parts. Some are clearly in a less-appropriate format because they predate their use in the app. The magnification option does not help as it shows an image of the same size.

Good to know

You need to sign your child up for the app's service, but they need to complete an assessment that forms their baseline when you have done this. Don't be tempted to fill this in yourself, as you'll skew the app's training program making it unsuitable for your child.

You need to maintain this approach in the future too. LogiQids uses an algorithm to determine which questions a child must answer. If you give them help or have a go at solving them yourself, the app's data for setting the correct level will not accurately reflect your child's level.

How much does LogiQids app cost?

You can download the LogiQids app for free. 

What is included with the free version vs. paid?

Premium purchases in LogiQids involve purchasing extra worksheets. You can buy these in various quantities, with higher amounts being cheaper per worksheet. Kids can also earn gems within the app to unlock more games and bonus worksheets.

Is LogiQIds app safe to use?

LogiQids' homepage encourages kids to get their friends to sign up for the service by promising them five gems if they refer their friends. The referral button leads to the device's communication apps. Kids can also send their scores from each worksheet or game to their contacts using the share button in the app.

There are no third-party advertisements in LogiQids.

LogiQids asks for more data than we think is necessary—see the section above on how the app might be improved.

Overall rating of the app.

LogiQids is a comprehensive reasoning and problem-solving app. It has variety and a good quantity of questions to test and develop kids. It still needs further refinement, though. Its conversion from a worksheet-based platform to an app holds back its graphical fidelity, and its sometimes awkward phrasing could confuse users, especially younger ones. We'd also like to see the app ask for less personal data, even if it doesn't insist on it.

Nevertheless, LogiQids is a solid foundation that provides excellent thinking exercises that are interesting, fun, and different from what kids will do at school. LogiQids is a four-star app well on its way to becoming a five-star app.
