The good folks behind the YouVersion Bible app released a Bible app for kids late last year. We’ve had it on the iPad for a few months now and we (and our kids) really really like it. Here’s why:
- It’s free – yes, we’re tight and we’ll try most things that don’t cost anything
- It’s really nicely produced. The illustration and animation is great, and it’s designed to be used and accessed by kids
- It’s interactive – there are little things to do and press in the animations and there are little quiz questions running through to reinforce learning
- It’s works at different ages – little ones can have the story read to them; older ones can explore and read more on their own
- Our kids love it – they often ask ‘can we go on the bible app’ which is music to our ears.
So far there aren’t loads of stories available – creation, fall, gospel stories – but they are developing more which will be released over time. So if you want a free, well produced resource, that kids will love what have you got to lose?
