GoodnightABC (by GoodnightABC) is an entertaining, high-quality, children’s Education app that has an abundance of interactive features to teach children their ABC’s, phonics, word recognition and vocabulary throughout the 26 pages of original and really fun artwork. As a kid, I remember how stories were able to capture my imagination allowing me to become fully immersed in that story and provided a memorable experience — I can think of a few right now. Having reviewed hundreds of children’s/kid’s apps, this iPad Education app stands out as one of the very best in what it does, which is to teach young kids (2 and up) a variety of disciplines, but most importantly — their A,B,C’s.
This app from the moment you open it grabs your attention with the bright colors and simple navigation. Each letter is represented by an animal of some sort, sometimes not your everyday zoo animal, and is placed in an original artwork page filled with loads of interaction opportunities that take full advantage of the iPad’s technology. There are also several modes to a letter, the main page with the letter/interactions, a learning page (accessed on the bottom left by tapping on the graduation hat), and a coloring mode on the bottom right (accessed by tapping on the pencil). The main mode will have your child exploring all the objects, animal, and items while the learning page stops all action on a page and lets kids simply tap on each object to find out what it is by word/name. The coloring mode is fantastic and appropriate for young kids by having a very easy coloring method using swipe gestures to color/fill in all of the artwork colors at once, instead of being frustrated by trying to keep coloring between the lines. In other words, by swiping a finger across the screen your child will color in that whole portion of the picture, that begins from black and white to become the beautiful colored image that it really is. There are some additional settings in the coloring section, but this is really designed to provide a low stress coloring experience for young kids — but it really worked for me too.
The main feature of Goodnight ABC is for kids to learn the alphabet, along with phonics, problem solving, and many other early learning disciplines, but a special extra is when all the animals get a little shut-eye to rest after a long day of activity, which is done by sliding the sun to the right on any letter page. Once the sun goes down the animal goes to sleep, the moon comes up and almost all the interaction opportunities stop — except one. There are stars that dangle down encouraging them to be swiped on, which provides a pleasant sound (and provides for yet more interaction). I found this book to be an awesome and engaging experience. The overall design was fantastic and the navigation was designed to prevent kids from exiting the iPad app and going onto the web. All navigation that leads out of the app has a prompt to verify the action. I loved the quality, variety and the amount of things to do in this iPad Education app, which are subtly provided and not presented in an overwhelming way. Like some of the most memorable books of my childhood, in my humble opinion, GoodnightABC will make a lasting impression on kids.

An animal that lives in its own ingenious micro world represents each of the 26 letters of the alphabet. Every picture is different, unconventional, beautifully illustrated, and thus never boring. Touch, tap, or drag every inch of the screen to uncover more items, set things in motion, assemble and disassemble devices, and find exciting games. Another unique feature is the ability to create nightfall by moving the sun across the horizon.
