We recently had the opportunity to review The ABC’s of GOD by readtheWord. It is an iPad app that was created by a parent of three, school teacher, and Bible student. Its main goal is to provide families with the opportunity to share with their children who God says He is from His Word. Each letter in the alphabet teaches one of God’s traits.
A Little Info About ABC’s of GOD…
- Offers 4 types of activities- Learn Letters (each letter reveals a truth about God), Fridge Letter Match, Chalkboard, and Word Search.
- Incorporates three learning styles (visual, auditory, and kinesthetic).
- Up to 4 children can play, each having their own individual account, with progress and rewards saved for next time.
- It cost $1.99 and can be purchase through iTunes.
Watch a short clip from the video below for a better glimpse into the app.
So, here is my honest opinion of the app.
There really isn’t a lot to wish for from this app. As I said in the beginning, its main goal is to teach children about who God says He is from His Word. And it accomplishes it. The following wishes are really more about letter instruction.
Overall, The ABC’s of GOD is a quality app and well worth the purchase. It teaches about the God we serve and my sons loves it and asks to play it all the time. I don’t know if you could ask for more in an app for kids.

I try to read the bible verses in transition screens to my son but they change too fast and I think the bible verse should read aloud to the child…maybe it does and I haven’t found it yet. Great app though!
Do you know if this will work with an iphone? I don’t have an ipad, but would love to get this to use with my kids! Thanks!
Not at this time, but its in the final stages of development.
@Stephanie, I would have loved to have the verses be read aloud to the children, but because of copyright issues with the various Bible translation distributers I had to limit the amount of actual words from any certain translation … thus no read-aloud. But it’s definitely something that i’ll keep in mind and attempt to work through. Thanks for the feedback!
Amanda- I just got news this week that The ABC’s of God now has an iPhone App!
