About Quick Clocks - Telling Time

Quick Clocks is a clean, polished app that contains three mini games to help children understand time. The reason we love it so much is that it doesn’t just ask for the time, but instead covers lots of different aspects of time-telling.

Teacher Review

Quick Clocks has three different areas for learning. The first section, Find the Clock, shows your child the time, and they must select the correct clock, all while being timed. The app records your child’s time, and then they can compete against their personal best score. This app is great for kids who like competition or obtaining a goal. The second section allows your child to set the clock to the given time, again while being timed to see how many problems they can complete in a given time frame. The last section is called Question Time, where the child writes the time with their finger and the app tells whether the answer is correct. The app does have the ability to have multiple users and remembers each user’s scores in order for them to compete against themselves. Each section has 3 levels: beginner, intermediate, and advanced.
