A bit more detail about the changes

Times tables is an interactive tool for learning the multiplication tables. Animated fish can show how values are reached and an automatic mode runs through all

Version 2.0 of the chrome webstore app has been released. In fact only one new activity a fraction wall which can be used to show equivalence between fractions and compare with decimals and percentages.

Visnos is gaining popularity around the world, particularly in Latin America. Unfortunately when using the chrome translate extension, the translate menu was blocking the website menus. That has now been fixed.

Perhaps of most interest and requiring the most work also. Visnos now works in internet explorer 8. I would not recommend using this browser if at all avoidable. However it seems in schools in the UK it is still quite popular.

So at least for people who visit the site can see most activities working. With luck they will visit again in a modern browser!

I love your fraction wall demo on the website. Could you make it so the decimals and percentages don't round? It would make it easier to relate all three concepts

Another version (1.3) of the web app is online. Lots of small changes and improvements.

Such as video added to explain how to use basic angles.

But biggest change is Time & Angles is now Time, Angles & Fractions.
The extra fractions mode makes a lot of sense, especially when considering time expressions such as half past or a quarter past.

Next planned additional activity will be a more general purpose fraction tool.

So finally got the basic angles activity online today. Did a tutorial video too but that will have to wait for uploading.

Also video improvement in that it is now possible to watch a video in a dialog box while the app is launched. Will be making new shorter videos which I think might be more useful.

Hi, I couldn't find a link to comments on the Basic Angles launch page, so I hope it's OK that I comment here.  The Basic Angle page lists a 90 degree angle as "obtuse" when it should list it as "right".  We just discovered this app and it's been great in the classroom - Thanks!

Version 2.1 https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/gkaehphddognnolhgnimoadpoacbdhbd

is now in the webstore. Although some of new features have actually been live for a while. 

Major improvement is that each activity now has a unique URL which can be bookmarked. 

Also changed the overall styling so that messages in the top bar are a lot clearer. Would also like have changed the icons for video and information as they are currently too small. 

Added two more activities a countdown timer which can be used in lessons. Also random spinners that can be used for probability but also have a game built in dealt with in the next post.

Chrome webstore app has been improved, now it is possible to watch tutorial videos from inside a launched activity. The information dialogues have also been improved although at the moment this only affects basic angles.

Now tutorial text can refer to controls and send a transfer effect to point to that control. The other activities need to be update to used this effect.

Basic angles nearly completed, would have like to get it online tonight but I think it will have to wait till the morrow.

A very practical bread and butter activity with no fancy animations!

Exciting news, it looks like Visnos will be featured! Hopefully can get some good tips from top notch developers on making improvements to the app.
 
We're trying something new next week for our * #HTML5RocksLive * hangout - * #WebAppReviews !* On May 7th at 11am Pacific (19:00 GMT), we've invited +Ernest Delgado, +Paul Irish and +Seth Ladd to take a look at your newest and coolest web apps and compliment your great skills or give you some tips on how you can improve your app! We'll even nominate our favorite web apps to be featured in the Chrome Web Store!

Developers, if you want to have your app reviewed and can join us live next Monday, submit your app and don't forget a link to the Chrome Web Store item to our Moderator queue at http://goo.gl/IKaZ3. Your app needs to be in the Chrome Web Store to be considered (you can use AppMator http://goo.gl/Pqk46 to quickly get it in), so be sure to get it in first!

Everyone else, use the voting buttons to vote--and tell us what you think using the "post a response" link under each item. The top apps will get reviewed on air next week starting at 11:00am.

No new activities, but lots of updates. The number explorer http://www.visnos.com/demos/nosexplorer is now completely redesigned. I am pretty happy with the results.

Addition and subtraction facts have a fix for a browser bug in chrome that made the calculation fly away.

Number explorer and times tables can now use a different shapes other than fish. Both demos now work in Internet explorer 9 although the fish are a bit lame as they don't change direction. Hence the addition of other shapes, the circles work quite well and the animation performance is not too bad.
The number explorer demo uses fish to arrange the number into different patterns this allows analysis of whether the number is even,odd,prime,square,triangular
