Apps for Education: Art ABC

The iTunes App Store is filled with apps that are designed to enhance childhood learning, but Art ABC truly shines when compared to its competitors. This new application from Oh Factory offers a delightful synergy between the fine arts and learning the alphabet, and it’s sure to be a new favorite amongst parents and children alike.


Weaving traditional concepts (using one word to demonstrate the use of each letter in writing, reinforcing the common “ABC” order) with new possibilities opened up by touchscreen and iOS technology, Art ABC combines the best of both worlds. Enhancing children’s alphabet studies with fine arts illustrations is the icing on the cake. Each letter is gorgeously demonstrated using an interactive backdrop from paintings by the likes of Rousseau, Degas, and Renoir.


Soothing music, clear narration, and a well-executed, elegantly simple user interface complete the package. Art ABC is, without a doubt, one of the best new educational apps available. It is available for the iPhone and iPad for only $0.99.
