Our Two Favorite ABC Apps

Endless Alphabet App

Yes, preschool is upon us, and so are tons of learning apps, and it is so hard to weed through them all. I’m no big techie, so I really just keep my eyes open and see what gets good reviews, what catches my eye design-wise, and we also try out a bunch of apps.

So far, these are Beckett’s 2 favorite ABC apps, by FAR. These are the 2 he keeps going back to and asking to play. They happen to be my favorite 2 apps as well, and it makes me wonder about the sophistication of kids’ tastes. It seems as though lots of kids are loving these, by all of the other reviews I’ve read of them.

First up, and one I’ve reviewed before, is the Lonely Beast. I just reviewed it a little over 2 months ago, so you can read my review here. I guess I really just wanted to reiterate how impressed I am with it, because it’s continued to keep Beckett interested.

I don’t know if it’s the character, the wonderful illustrations, the simplicity of it, or the goofiness (I like all of these things), but 3 year old B is a big fan.

The other one we’re in love with is Endless Alphabet. Again, it’s so wonderfully illustrated. Beyond that, the voices they put to the letters, the little creatures, and the way the characters interact between words is hilarious. My favorite is R. I seriously crack up whenever I hear it.

Besides my being impressed with the apps, I can see Becket actually learning letters. It’s so cool! We go over the sounds and names of the letters on our own, but the apps reinforce that practice, and vice-versa.

I’m slowly warming up to the idea of supplementing learning with apps- it’s much easier to feel this way as their quality increases. The combination of great graphics, entertaining audio and clever activities on these two make them major winners.

Got any more suggestions for us? I’m all ears. And come follow my Creative Apps for Kids board on Pinterest.

  1. We got the lonely beast based on your review. I love it too! . I love reading about apps other moms like. My kids love going to the App Store! One of their favorites is minecraft and cakepop. Not very educational but fun.

    • Minecraft is the best thing fen has ever seen in her little life. Except now she’s on to Block Heads.

  2. My son is almost a year and half and he really loves the Old MacDonald and Itsy Bitsy Spider apps from Duck Duck Moose. Thank you for your recommendations! I’m downloading them both as I type 🙂

    • Isn’t it amazing that there are apps for kids that age?! I hope you like these 2 we love ’em!

  3. Adorable ABC apps. I guess Mr. Beckett is really into monsters?

    • I think he’s into anything regarding monsters, samurai, knights, warriors, etc. the list is endless. But monsters are pretty cool.

  4. We got Endless ABC a couple of weeks ago and like you, we’ve been astounded at the degree of improvement / retention of letters with our three year old. We use this app with him otherwise he can get a bit carried away but we’ve also started using the same method when we’re talking about letters and it really works. We can pretty much play eye spy now.

    • It IS crazy! My daughter is 10, and we did not use apps to augment her learning, so this is so interesting.
