At first glance this program's gray interface seems drab; however, the program offers a wide assortment of educational challenges. SmarterKid's easy-to-use activities include hangman, scramble, word search, math, and memory games. Each game offers skill level options, customization features plus feedback on user progress. For example scramble players can set the number of vowels and consonants, shuffle letters, and if stuck, ask for the answer. The word search and memory games contain drop-down lists with preloaded pictures and word themes, and the math game offers addition, subtraction, division, and multiplication quizzes. There is one flaw though; numbers must be entered in reverse which may be difficult for young children. The female voice-over can seem annoying at times, but the program does offer a sound-off button. Parents looking for a good freeware application that offers a suit of educational games will find SmarterKid is worth a try.
