My Take
MATHia is extremely difficult for students to move through. The materials and problems are quite wordy. From the highest student to the lowest student, they all struggle and there are many complaints. Personally, as I read through some of the problems, I became distracted. Also, they do not indicate how to enter your response and so students would become stuck, not because they didn't know the answer, but because they were not entering the response in the wanted format, i.e. decimal vs fraction, tenths vs hundredths, etc. I could see it being beneficial in settings where the students had a strong grasp of the concept prior to being assigned the concept in MATHia, otherwise, I wouldn't recommend it at all.
