# More Fabulous, Free Apps

We said that we would be back with more fabulous free apps and finally we have been inspired to do so. Lots of apps are free, have a lite version or in-app purchases - but few are free with no strings attached and rate 5 STARS. Here is a handful. Please feel free to share!

A fabulous free app, Oh No! Fractions - Curious Hat Lab, came across our desk recently and if a colleague hadn't said, "It's tough for kids to grasp fractions", it may have slipped through the cracks. Luckily, it didn't and we are here to sing it's praised. Explore and learn about fractions with a simple and intuitive interface. Compare and visualize two fractions and guess which one is greater.  Oh No! Fractions are as simple as it gets. This gorgeous app lets the user decide whether the given fraction is less or greater than another fraction. After the child has decided and chosen less or greater, it asks  "I'm Sure" and then "Prove It" where a visual representation of the two fractions is shown and manipulated by the child. This representation gives a stunning visual comparison of the two fractions. Students were intrigued by this sassy app and played with determination to prove their answer to be correct. We love love, love, the learning potential and admired the classy aesthetic quality of this app.
NOTE* 1/24/13 -  Curious Hat Lab has just made this app Universal and added a couple of new options, and we're told they'll be adding more features soon.
