Hyderabad: LearnClue, a Hyderabad-based education aggregator startup announced the launch of its digital Abacus learning mobile app. Touted as the world’s first Abacus in the digital form, it enables students to practice Abacus within the app, besides through live and recorded sessions from experts.
