About this app

The New City Catechism is a modern-day resource aimed at helping children and adults alike learn the core doctrines of the Christian faith via 52 questions and answers. The New City Catechism mobile app makes it easy to take all of the questions and answers with you wherever you go—for free!

The app pairs each question and answer with a Scripture reading from the ESV, a short prayer, and a devotional commentary written by contemporary pastors, including John Piper, Timothy Keller, Kevin DeYoung, and others.

The app also includes a short version of each answer and kid-friendly songs designed to help children memorize the entire catechism.

Features:

• 52 catechism questions and answers related to God, humanity, sin, salvation, and more
• Devotional commentary on every question and answer written by respected pastors and church leaders
• Short prayers to accompany each question and answer
• A children's mode featuring short versions of each answer and quick access to kid-friendly songs designed to aid memorization
• Related Bible passages drawn from the ESV

The New City Catechism is a joint project of the Gospel Coalition and Crossway.

I absolutely love this app! It is user friendly, has a great design, and the songs are amazing. The only problem I have is that the songs sometimes stop in the middle for no reason. I agree it would be useful if it saved your place and had a playlist of the songs, but swiping through the questions and clicking to see the answers is very simple and beneficial for memory practice. Overall, I'm very glad I found this app as an aid for me and my children to memorize the catechism!

New City Catechism is a regular feature of Sunday's services. I enjoy it and asked the pastor about it. He gave me the book. In the book is a reference to the app. The app has everything as described, including a children's version. During the reading, the catechism is referenced by number. The app does not seem to have a search to quickly go to the referenced catechism.

When listening to the song for Q4-5, it's ALWAYS cut off after a few seconds. However, apart from that, this is a fabulous app and the songs in children's mode are wonderful for both adults and children to learn the answers! (although I wouldn't be opposed to songs being added to the longer/adults questions also..)
