Fantastic ABC app for kids: Alphabeast


Jane and I frequently get sent applications that are a bit too young for her (she's 9) but are still really good. Alphabeast for iPhone is one of them. It's a simple ABC teaching program that goes through the letters of the alphabet, and it stars the creature from Chris Judge's award-winning kids' book, The Lonely Beast. Each of the 26 scenes (one for each letter of the alphabet) includes sly and humorous animation and sound effects. Jane and I enjoyed going through each letter of the alphabet to find out what the animation sequence was.

I asked Chris to send me some of his concept art of the app. See all the images after the jump.
