This web application allows you to teach kids how to check a number can be divided by another number
(primarily, but not limited to, *2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 9, 10 or 11*). When they learn that, you can
increase the complexity by setting a composite divisor: like *6* which is *2×3*.
Or by setting multiple prime or composite divisors: like *3* or *5* or *22*.
The latter though will be automatically converted to *2×11* for better clarity.

The application neither collects private information, nor uses cookies, and doesn't even make external
calls. It just uses the browser's local storage to keep your preferences. Please note: this means that
clearing your browser cache will discard the application's preferences too. Unfortunately, this will
happen even if you install it as an app on your device.

The application is available on any device: tablet (ideal), phone, laptop, or desktop. The recommended
orientation for the handheld devices is *landscape* (horizontal). The only requirements are a
web browser and an internet connection to start using or to get updates.

You can use *Divisiki* in a browser as is without any installation. However, you can install it
on most devices via browser. This will give you the native app experience and the ability to run offline
when the internet connection is intermittent or unavailable. Please note that not all browsers are capable
of web app installation. On handheld devices, ideally, do that with *Google Chrome* or *Microsoft
Edge* on non-Apple devices, and with *Safari* on Apple devices. You should find and tap *Add
to Home screen* menu item (or similar), then follow the prompts. On laptops and desktops, an icon with
a monitor and an arrow might show up at the end of the address bar. If you hover it with the mouse cursor,
a tooltip will pop: *Install Divisiki*. Click that icon and follow the prompts.

On the first start, you'll be asked to change the default player name from *Anonymous* to something
more suitable. You can do that by tapping/clicking the modify icon (the second from the left above the list
of players), then typing in any other text of your choice.

To start playing, tap/click the large play button in the center, and you'll see a random number. If it
is divisible by the one(s) listed at the right bottom corner past *By:*, tap/click the green tick button.
Otherwise, tap/click the red cross button. If your mental calculation is right, you'll get another number,
and the score at the right top corner will change. Otherwise, you'll see the large play button again, but
the score will stay until you start another game. You'll also see the text explaining why the game was
stopped. The text will be located at the top middle part of the screen. If the game is timed, every time
you give an answer, the timer at the left bottom corner will be reset. The score at the top right corner
is in the format of *Player C:CurScore B:BestScore L:Level*. Both player and points are tappable/clickable
allowing to add, change or delete player(s), or the level (the current number of digits in the riddle).

After a certain number of consecutive successful attempts, the level (the number of digits) will increase
automatically For the lower levels, this will happen after the application can't find more numbers to play,
and for the higher levels, after 50 successful attempts in a row. However, you can change that manually too
by tapping/clicking the score at the top right corner of the screen.

You can add, rename or delete player(s) by tapping/clicking the name of the current player at the top right
corner of the screen, then using the icons on top of the list of existing players in the popup dialog. The
icons are (in the order of appearance): add, rename, delete, move up, move down. Please note that once a player
is deleted, all their game information is lost. By deleting all players one by one, you delete all your
preferences. Anonymous (default) player with the default preferences will be automatically reinstated afterwards.

You can change the level (the number of digits in the number being checked) by tapping/clicking the score
at the top right corner of the screen (next to the current player name), then navigating through or tapping/clicking
an item in the list of levels from 1 to 15 the respective number and closing the dialog or pressing *Enter*.

You can select the time limit type between *Per move* (default) and *Per game*. The differences are:

- The former will reset the countdown to the selected time limit after every successful guess
- The latter will continue the countdown after every successful guess until the time is over, then will reset

You can select various time limits by tapping/clicking the the current time limit at the left bottom corner
of the screen, then navigating through or tapping/clicking an item in the list of time limits and closing
the dialog or pressing *Enter*.

You can add, rename or delete games (divisors) for the current player by tapping/clicking the score of the current
player at the bottom right corner of the screen where *By:* is located, then using the icons on top of the list
of existing divisors in the popup dialog. The icons are (in the order of appearance): add, rename, delete, move up
move down. Essentially, you add or modify divisors. For the new set of divisors, the level will be set to minimal,
and the initial score will be zero. Divisors can appear either as plain prime numbers like *2* or as composite
numbers like *12* or *3x4* ("and" operation) or as an "or"-separated list of numbers like *5 or
12o13* meaning that the number being played should be divisible by at least one of those numbers ("or" operation).
Once you enter divisors, they'll be automatically converted to the canonical form like *5 or 4×3 or 13*.
Please note that composite numbers can be entered either like plain numbers or a product of simpler numbers using *,
x, X or × or "a" or "and" as the operator. In any case, the result will be calculated and converted into a product
of powers of prime numbers or *10*. The order is ascending for the base numbers rather than powers: *4 or 3*,
as *4* is *2*^{2}. The list of divisors ("at least one of") can be specified using the "o" or
"or" with or without surrounding spaces as the separator. Please note that once you modify a game (divisors), your level
and highest score will be reset.
