iPad App Review - David and Goliath

~ Posted on Monday, February 4, 2013 at 8:04 AM ~

I had earlier reviewed "The House That Went On Strike" and after noticing my almost 4 years old boy getting hooked to listening and watching the story app over and over and over again, I decided to check out what other apps were developed by the same developer (I always do this when my kids like the apps on my iPad) and then I found this awesome app. Without even an ounce of shame (really!) I decided to ask the developer whether I could possibly review this app and to my delight, they send me a promo code to review it! Without further ado, here goes my feedback...

* I love this app! It is engaging and interactive! There are some objects on each pages which allows us to touch and then see the animations of it!

* I particularly enjoyed the page shown below. It kinda depicts how the battle goes on long long time ago and to be honest, my boy and I spent quite a long time just on this page, each of us taking one side and battle over each other hahaha... it was fun! I also used the opportunity to teach my boy the types of weaponry used during battles and wars.

* Prior to using this app, I have read from the bible and even showed some cartoons on David and Goliath but I think this app is the one leaving a lasting impression because it is so realistic and the animations in this story app just add on to the exhilaration and the fighting spirit.

* I love seeing my boy's face turning into amazement and wonders as he listens and watches through the storyline. How little David is compared to the giant Goliath. How David braves on to fight Goliath with God on his side.

* I have always reminded my boy whenever he is scared of something that 'God will protect you, don't be scared. Remember how David can fight Goliath? It's because God protects him!' and I have the opportunity to hear my almost 4 years old boy telling me 'Mummy, I'm not scared. God protect me like how He protects David when he fights with Goliath!'. My boy uttered this the first time he sat on the toilet seat to poop. He has always been afraid of sitting on the toilet seat (he told me he's scared of falling into the hole) and I'm very happy to be able to witness his milestone and that he relates it to David and Goliath when he overcame his fear of toilet seat. I'm forever grateful to be able to review this app!
