Futaba Classroom Games is the only multi-player game of its kind on the iTunes App Store!  

Up to 4 students can cooperatively learn using just one iPad.  Each child takes a seat around the iPad and taps in to start. The game begins as images and questions spin into the playing area. The first player to answer correctly scores a point. Win 3 rounds and earn a Futaba (a small ‘seedling’).

Futaba also includes a single player practice mode - a great way to study at home or in the classroom (see our screenshots below).

NEW - Futaba Cloud Service - it's now easier than ever to create and share games with other iPads in your classroom.


Containing a number of teacher recommended learning sets,  Futaba is designed to give your children an engaging review by supporting curriculum standards.  These include lower-case and upper-case Alphabet Matching, Dolch Sight Words for 1st through 3rd grades, Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, Division, Telling the Time, Currency, Countries and Flags, Shapes, Animals, Foods and more. 

As an immensely beneficial classroom learning tool for children 4-10 Futaba is ideal for supporting class room activities of all types.   Create reviews, introduce learning topics for the first time in a fun way or even have students create their own learning sets to solidify a review. 


Futaba is a versatile application and one of a kind in the app store.  Parents, teachers and even students themselves can add their own content to Futaba by using either the built in camera, the camera roll by copying images to iTunes.

Teachers can also create a FREE Futaba Cloud Account, which allows you to easily share your games from iPad to many using a simple class code.

INKids Education will be updating this app constantly with new learning sets, and you can always CREATE your own games.... (send a list of words in a particular curriculum or any other requests and we'll do our best to have our artist draw them up and add them to the next update).
