Welcome to ABC Apps
The #1 trusted source for the best in educational apps.
We’re here to help you find the best educational apps available. Educational apps have shown to be beneficial to:
- increasing literacy;
- improving skills and knowledge in a subject;
- prepare children to start school and give them a head start;
- learn new skills or languages;
- increase engagement in education;
- plus so much more!
We know there are tens of thousands of apps available in today’s marketplace. It can be overwhelming trying to choose the best app for your needs. That’s why ABC Apps was founded – to give you a reliable source of data about each app.
Our team of teachers, educational specialists, parent reviewers, and kid testers search high and low for the best apps in each subject, and then we evaluate them for their usability, reliability, educational merit and, of course, safety. We sort out the junky apps filled with ads or inappropriate content, saving you valuable time and helping you avoid “uh-oh” moments from unreliable apps.
You can trust the recommended apps from ABCapps, as we’ve done all the sorting, playing, and reviewing for you to ensure the app you’ll be using is best in class. We don’t earn any money from app developers or app stores, so our reviews are unbiased and factual. Members get even more benefits with the ability to create wishlists, get instant access to apps, and more.
Weekly new additions to hundreds of the Best Educational Apps in our Library
My Story Book Maker is a highly engaging app designed to spark creativity in young minds. It provides a platform for budding authors to produce their own stories with many personalized touches. The simple interface allows for a distraction-free space to unleash a child’s artistry and vision from their imagination’s depths.
Few things scream nostalgia more than a brightly colored box of Crayola crayons. From the widely recognized box and label to the fresh smell of new crayons, I am sure every adult and child can associate good memories with Crayola. While this app may not offer up that new-box-of-crayon scent, it definitely delivers a good dose of familiarity.
Little Chatterbox is an innovative language-learning app that uses older children as virtual teachers. As an app geared toward younger children, I find it brilliant to use other kids as teachers. As seen through real-life experiences, kids often learn from their peers (sometimes good, sometimes bad.) Little Chatterbox makes that a positive experience, enticing young learners, and sparking motivation to replicate what they see delivered on screen.
Are you looking for an app that features the most current discoveries, research, studies, and articles about the exciting world of science? How about an app that allows you to save your favorite topics, so you have a personalized news feed of information that piques your interest? Maybe you want a community forum that will enable you to post questions or facts for other users to see? With Science News & Discoveries, you can have all of that and more!
As a parent, it can be challenging to find content for our children that not only falls into the educational category but is also safe, entertaining, and appealing. Often, we find ourselves in the hamster wheel of monotonous and lackluster options. All the World brings a new perspective to learning and unlocks the door to curiosity and eagerness to learn.
Learning new things doesn’t have to be boring, especially when you throw nostalgic characters into the mix. Enter in: lovable, cute, and fun Care Bears! ASL with Care Bears is an app designed to teach kids American Sign Language, and it uses these fun-loving characters to make it attractive and more exciting.
Hailed by The New York Times as a “sensation” and claimed by Cosmopolitan to be “the best dollar you’ve spent,” Heads Up! is a game that is sure to bring the family together for hours of fun and entertainment.
Watch your child become mesmerized as she dances through the pages of her very own fairy tale. That’s right! In “Little Stories,” your child will play the main character in a series of positive and uplifting bedtime story fairy tales.

Explore these Award-Winning Apps
“We haven’t seen anything like this before. I am always skeptical when it comes to kids apps and try to limit my kids’ screen time but this one blew us all away. Exploring this pop up dynamic world is an amazing motivator to read in complete sentences instead of words or fragments. It was like a moving playground in our space where we could all explore. My son was standing, walking and even jumping (along with reading) while using this app unlike some other games where he is in some sedentary trance. Highly recommend to parents who may prefer to keep their kids engaged with their actual environment and reading instead of engrossed in a screen fantasy.” – L.T.
“An Absolute Must-Have. What makes this app amazing is Mr. Gray’s fantastic descriptions of each and every element. Concise, accurate, and most of all, interesting. I directly attribute my son’s love of science to this app. I have purchased over 500 apps since I bought my first iPhone, but The Elements stands out as my single favorite purchase.” – A.M.
“GREAT app! My 3 yr old loves trucks so needless to say, this app was an instant hit. Not only does he get to see the many types of trucks, he is also learning the jobs that the trucks and their drivers perform, great educational value! As a parent of a budding reader, I appreciate the word-highlighting, along with tapping on the paragraph to hear it read again. This is a wonderful, fun, educational app that I would HIGHLY recommend!” – A.K.
The Lonely Beast 123
“Brilliant. Hysterical, charming, instructive and fun for all ages! Like a good Disney movie, the beast abc and 123 apps have something for the parents/grandparents too. My grandkids love the beast, and so do all the many friends and their toddlers that I’ve told about the apps. Wish there were more!” – A.K.
Thinkrolls Kings & Queens
“This game is perfect. It’s puzzles are challenging (but not impossible) and low-pressure. The characters are customizable and funny, and the soundtrack is pleasant with silly sound effects. It develops critiical thinking and problem-solving skills in a fun way. My 5 year old loves it, and I do too. A+! Please make more of these games.” – M.H.
“Best kid app we have found. Hands down this is the best kids app that we’ve come across to date. Our 3.5 year old started playing with this around age 2. It’s amazingly intuitive and the designs respond to almost any type of interaction from the user. As such, it’s far less frustrating than other “games” which won’t function correctly unless the child is taught what to touch and when. Can not recommend this highly enough. Wish Vectorpark would come out with more like this!” – A.J.

“ABC Apps has been so helpful!”
“Math has always been the most problematic area for me in the realm of study. It has been the only subject I ever faltered in which was more frustrating then I can explain. But when I first started community college I was forced to confront it and actually do something about my confusion. I started looking up Algebra apps and practicing hours a day. I worked hard through the summer and came out the other side actually understanding math for the first time in my life. I just recently finished my last calculus class and am now done with all of my math, and that never would have been possible if I didn’t find such amazing help from these ingenious apps.”
