Children’s Bible, created by BCNmultimedia is a well developed app containing comic books about biblical stories. This app is targeting young children between the ages of 7 – 13. It’s an educational avenue for children, put in an easy to understand format. The price of the app is FREE, though please note that you have to purchase additional packs to make the app worth while.
The illustrations are pretty detailed and the navigation is quite simple to figure out while also providing a slick way to get through the scenes. Tapping the screen to the right advances you to the next frame, though the actual transition from one scene to another animates by shifting, scanning and zooming across the page, making for a nifty scene change. Tapping the center of the screen takes you to the controls menu, which is basically a visual menu of the comic that allows you to scan through each page for reference. The app also allows you to pinch and zoom into hard to read text areas.
The Bible is meant to be read by a more mature, older audience (in general terms), so having this app tailors the teachings of the bible in comic book form and makes this not only an appropriate app but also a spiritually enlightening one that’s also entertaining in the process.
Children’s Bible comes with one free story, the “Birth Of Jesus”. This comic is 4 pages long and tells the story of the angel appearing to Mary, the search for a room at an inn, the birth in a manger and the shepherds visit. Readers can purchase additional comics and activities from within the app for $2.99 (at the time we reviewed the app there was a Christmas sale, making the cost $1.99). Each additional comic is 25 pages. The list of available in-app packs are:
Children’s Bible is available through the iTunes App Store as a free download for iPhone and iPod Touch devices. With seven languages to select from, full-color comic book style art work, and intuitive navigation controls that guide you through the pages, this app is a great tool to teach your child about the Lord above in a fun and engaging manner. The quality and solid development behind the app easily makes it a SlapApp “4 finger” rating, though the cost of the individual packs may deter some from getting the most out of it, so keep that in consideration prior to trying it out.
