Tinct: math puzzle app for iphone, ipad

Joshua Liddle recently contacted me about his math puzzle app game called Tinct.  The object is to find some numbers that form a simple equation whose answer is already given.

The game can be played with a timer - for pressure - or untimed.

Suppose the target # is 15. You have many options: look for a 7 & 8. There could be a 7, but where's the 8?  Instead you find a 15 & 1 and make a multiplication operation.

The dial spins.  I really like the graphics.  In terms of a puzzle challenge, I think this is particularly good for kids.  Although I could see seniors doing this to ward off Alzheimer's.
