Do you have a favorite IXL feature?  Or maybe an idea for a brand new one?  Take a moment to share your thoughts with us!  Just click the “Tell us what you think” link on the bottom of our homepage.

Whether you’re writing to tell us how IXL has affected your students’ or children’s performance in math or offering a suggestion for improvement, we value your feedback.  In fact, many of IXL’s features are based directly on comments we receive from you.  For example, take our two newest features just released this month!  Teachers can now organize their student rosters into classes, and students can type their answers from right to left for all vertical addition and subtraction problems.  You asked, we answered!

When it comes to providing a comprehensive, high-quality math product that kids actually enjoy using, your voice is invaluable.  So please speak up; we’re listening!

We have been using your software for several years. In fact I recommended it to my daughter’s grade school which then passed it onto the parents and got it for the school. So great job! Here is my question when will the language arts software be ready for use?

IXL is really fun but i sometimes get board of it. IXL should have games so it won’t be so boring.

Hi, Nick. We appreciate your interest in testing our IXL app, but we do all of our developing and testing in house. We plan to release it later this year.

Please make an APP we are an ipad school who loves your program but believe an app would greatly benefit your site.

Sarah, thanks for your feedback. 95% of our content does work on an iPad browser. However, our development team is currently working on an IXL app, which we plan to release next school year!

My school uses IXL for their IPads and it is very helpful. (Pope John XxIII) Unfortunantly, our IPads do not have Flash, so we have to do our IXL on the netbooks. Will the IXL app include Flash?

Hi, Anneleissa. Yes, the IXL iPad app will allow you to access everything, including content that normally requires Flash. We plan to release it next school year. In the meantime, 95% of our content does work on an iPad browser.

I too am interested in an IXL app. Do you have a more specific release date for it?
Thanks

Hi, Nancy. I’m afraid we don’t have an exact date yet, but we’re happy to provide more information as it becomes available.

Are you going to make science be on your website, IXL?

Reply

The IXL Blog July 15, 2013 at 5:35 pm

Hi, Amrah! We’re currently focusing on language arts and more advanced math topics, but eventually we hope to expand to other subjects as well.

Like others…we are waiting for the iPad app for our school. How will we be notified when it becomes available?

Hi, Pam. We appreciate your enthusiasm about the IXL iPad app! We’ll make an announcement on our Facebook page when it becomes available, so be sure to keep an eye out! You can find our page at https://www.facebook.com/IXL.

I am using your server over iPAD but it does not have sound to read the questions. Am I doing something wrong or this feature only exits on the website?

Reply

The IXL Blog October 15, 2013 at 6:25 pm

Hi, Daniel. Both the iPad app and the IXL website offers an audio component for Pre-K through first grade, so it should work. Let us know if you continue to have issues.

No offense, But IXL is kinda boring. Make it more stimulating and maybe make tutorials for helping confused users, so they can learn to do the skill. Don’t just shove the problem out to the user. Maybe use a game!

The IXL Blog February 15, 2014 at 2:55 pm

Hi, Nuha. We will certainly pass your idea about including tutorials along to our development team. Thanks for taking the time to let us know your thoughts!

Hi, Arjun. Are you referring to an IXL help request you submitted? We try to respond to all questions as quickly as possible, but we do ask that you allow us one business day to get back to you about any technical support issue.

ixl is really good, i like the avatar thing and i like how it explains questions if you get them wrong, but it should be more like mathletics and have a human avatar that you can custumize and buy stuff for with your virtual credits, it should have something like live mathletics where you verse other people, and it needs some fun maths games. also, you have to answer a bit too many questions and it gets boring, and its frustating when you have to start your smartscore all over again when you get the question wrong, especially if you made a small mistake like a typing error. i think if you crossed mathletics with ixl ( and maybe even studyladder, because i like the rewards room, cubby, zoo and city and i also like the pet alien and pet dog.) then you would have an AWESOME maths site. oh, and one more thing, the great thing about ixl is that there is no “full access member” thing, where the maths thing is really bad and boring and you have to pay reall money for a member ship that only lasts a few months to make it better. thank you for not having one where you have to pay for the full thing, and please don’t consider making a paying one because if a site makes you pay for the full version, i really lose interest and it becomes boring.
thank you!
