5 Christian Apps You Need to be Using Today!
What does prayer and your smartphone have in common? Well, it turns out – a heck of a lot!
Well, welcome to the 21st-century church! This church does not wait for people to come to it, but is going where the people are – online. Yes, that’s right! From daily devotionals and Bible apps to church networking platforms and heavy-duty theological bites – you name it, and it’s out there!
There are tons of super products and platforms that promise to egg you on to fight the good fight. We’ve picked out five seriously cool innovations that are worth checking out. Here goes:
Your church small group is going to hit a whole new level! Study Church was developed by a young bloke called Tanner, who wanted to come up with a cool and easy way for small church groups to share, discuss and collaborate online.
“How cool would it be,” Tanner thought, “if we could study group material together, share, and discuss answers before class! Then we could really dig in deep when we met in person.”
The result – an online platform built around your group’s study material, which allows your group members to interact with each other on study questions. So, when your gang eventually meets during the week, the time spent is a lot more intentional and meaningful.

2. Glo Bible:
The Word of God is living, but the Glo Bible app makes it jump to life like never before! This app lets you plunge into the Bible with the help of HD videos and documentaries, hi-res images, zoomable maps, 360-degree virtual tours and other awesome features. What’s not to love?
Originally meant to be a desktop app, Glo Bible is all set to launch a power-packed, mobile-friendly avatar in the summer of 2016. You will soon be able to simply tap a passage to open up a treasure trove of media and study resources linked to each verse.
There will still be a free version of the new app, and monthly subscriptions will be available at the throwaway price of $5. Did we forget to mention that this app can integrate almost EVERY translation of the Bible that’s out there?
We’re excited! Stay tuned! To know more about Glo Bible, click HERE.
Stories are powerful. Perhaps, the most powerful kinds are the ones in which the Gospel rewrites the endings. Well, that’s exactly why Rock Church built the Gospel Central online and mobile apps.
This impactful platform is where you can explore, watch and share real stories of God moving mountains in different people’s lives. Stories of redemption, deliverance and of hope being restored. We love it!

Pray without ceasing. Easy to say, but perhaps not that easy to execute? Well, there’s one amazing tool that might be able to help. PrayerMate helps you pray for all the people and causes you care about.
How? By bringing all your prayer points together as personalized index cards, which you can swipe as you pray! You can set up your own custom-made categories. For example, you could be praying for Family, Salvation, Church, Mission Trips and Nations. Or, you could also have categories by the names of specific people or causes that need prayer. It’s pretty amazing!
How many times have you told a friend, “I’ll pray for you,” and then have completely forgotten about it? Well, with this handy app by your side, you will never forget again.
This app has been developed by software developer Andy Geers, and is available for free on iOS

5. Voke App:
We love free apps, especially when they actually have something amazing to offer! Well, this new kid on the block does just that! Voke is a free chat app that harnesses the power of media to kick-start meaningful, deep (read: spiritual) conversations.
How does it do that? It’s as easy as pie! Voke lets you share compelling videos with friends, and chat with them while they’re watching. All you need to do is choose one of the impactful short videos from Voke’s unique video library and then select a friend – or friends – to share it with.
As soon as they click on your link and start watching the video you that shared, Voke will notify you so that you can follow up with a message about the video at an appropriate time. The best part? Voke has ready conversation starters for each video so it’s all easy-peasy.
