Bible App for Kids (Free): The artwork is engaging and it has great vibrant colours. The stories are simplified, so it isn’t difficult to understand. It is interactive! Touching on animals, or people gives reactions. The stories are narrated and also written out, so that it helps kids to read, at least for sight words, like Jesus, God, and more.
Hallow (free): A prayer and meditation app.
