Being familiar with God's Word is important to a life of faith and purpose.

This app is designed to make scripture familiarization and memorization engaging, enjoyable, and easy.

Drawing from a limited set of instructive and inspirational verses, A Good Word generates simple word games that encourage the player to focus on a specific piece of scripture in a new way.

The first release of A Good Word includes:
- Word search puzzles, randomly generated and new every time you play
- "Hangman" games
- All game content comes directly from The Bible
- Verses get "filled in" as the player completes the puzzle
- Universal app, works on iPad and iPhone

This app is perfect for a quick infusion of God's Word in the slow moments and gaps of daily life.

For beginners, this app can serve as a simple introduction to several major Bible themes.

For veterans, this app can serve as a useful tool for a more intense and directed scripture memorization regimen.

Enjoy! And spread The Word!

Ratings and Reviews

I start my day with this

Southern bluebird

This app is wonderful for scripture memorization. It is also great for keeping you in God's Word, verse by verse. I enjoy hangman more than the word search because it helps me with the memorization more. I am very concerned, though Apple says it won't work with future iOS versions unless it's updated. Please, update it asap! This is a valuable resource for me and I don't want to lose access to it.

Great concept, a few suggestions


A really great concept. However, I have some suggestions. How about when you solve the hangman mode a menu pops up to tell you that you've completed/failed it. Also, instead of giving the verses straight up, why not make the verses random and unlockable, i.e. I choose the mode, Hangman/Crossword, and a random verse appears, once you solve it, then it appears in the neat categories that you already have (e.g. Comfort, encouragement, etc).

I Love This!


It is so relaxing and fun. It actually helps me memorize the verses. I like to play the hangman first and read the verse several times through and then do the word search for that verse and read it again a couple of times. By then it is or almost is memorized. I would recommend this game to all believers. What a great way to meditate on God's Holy Word.
