MathTime: Hinsdale kids design math app for iPhone

Mick Swasko:

You might think of flash cards and work sheets when you think of grade-school math. But now, thanks to two young brothers from Hinsdale, there’s an app for that.
Eleven-year-old Owen Voorhees’ iPhone application, MathTime, debuted in the iTunes App Store last week. The simple program, which displays random addition, subtraction, multiplication or division problems and their solutions, has been a work in progress for nearly nine months.
“I hope it helps people practice their facts,” Owen said, explaining that the application is intended for students a bit younger than himself, such as brother Finn, 9.
