tl;dr I have written an app to annoy children (or adults for that matter) into learning math.

Longer version:
I got annoyed at all the childlock apps out there. They either completely locks something, or enforce time limits. Neither of which is convenient for a video player on a long car trip. And the educational apps are not very engaging.

What I ended up with is a "trivia" CAPTCHA-like lock. Every time your kid opens an app you want to control, he has to answer a couple of questions. And there is a relock ability, so he has to answer more when a specified amount of time passes.

The current version in the play store has relatively small number of question modules. But many more are in the works

A word like 'Huh?' —used when one has not caught what someone just said—appears to be universal: it is found to have very similar form and function in languages across the globe. This is one of the findings of a major cross-linguistic study by researchers Mark Dingemanse, Francisco Torreira and ...

You know how for some of the liquids you pour in your body there are seasonal variations? Lots of coffee chains are as we speak pumpkin-infusing everything they can get their hands on, for example. Liquids for your car are the same way -- we're entering the time of Winter Blend gasoline now. Here's how it's going to impact you and why this is happening.
