Bible Memory 1.0 application released for Iphone

Mobilize Faith, LLC announced today that it has introduced the Bible Memory app for iPhone and iPod touch, making it easier and more fun to build Bible knowledge and memorize scripture. Just in time for anyone who wants to make memorizing verses a key part of their 2010 New Year’s resolutions, the Bible Memory app is available on the iTunes App Store for $3.99 (USD).

Bible memorization is an essential practice in Christian life, but there is no simple, organized and effective way to ensure that intention translates into practice, especially given today’s busy lifestyle. Many have resorted to index cards or paper, which are outdated and inefficient, and identifying a catalog of verses to memorize can be cumbersome and difficult.

Bible Memory is the first app for the iPhone and iPod touch that solves many of the barriers associated with creating a daily, weekly or monthly practice of memorizing scripture. Bible Memory puts 250 categorized verses in four translations at users’ fingertips wherever and whenever they have a free moment for quiet study and reflection.

"The idea for Bible Memory came to us while listening to our pastor, who was speaking of the virtues and importance of memorizing scripture and challenged the congregation to memorize one verse a week for the rest of the year. When we got home, my husband and I began thinking about how we would memorize our verses. We were still on fire after that morning’s call to action and out came the index cards and pens and we began to wonder whether there was a better and less archaic way to memorize scripture," said Petra Barrientos, Managing Partner of Mobilize Faith. "It was at this point that we thought of creating Bible Memory and are especially delighted to introduce the app at the beginning of the New Year for anyone who is looking for an exciting and personally rewarding way to strengthen resolve and spirit in 2010."

Bible Memory Features

The Bible Memory app has been designed from the ground up to creatively utilize the interactive features of the iPhone and iPod touch to help users have fun and stay engaged while memorizing Bible scripture. Bible Memory guides users through regular practice to build verse memorization.

* Each Bible verse is presented in three learning modes: read the Bible verse; review the verse a phrase at a time as users practice their ability to recall words of scripture; and complete three rounds of timed, fill-in-the-blank quizzes that become more difficult.

* Users can work through the verses in Bible order, or focus study on particular categories or books.

Bible Memory not only helps users memorize verses, it also creates a support system for scripture study and extends the benefits through social networking and sharing.

* The app allows users to identify up to three Bible study partners who are notified of progress and who can help keep users accountable.

* Users can set an alert to remind them that it is time to study.

* Automatic quizzes test retention of previously memorized verses.

* Metrics provide visual feedback on overall progress, by category, and by retention quiz results.

* Users can also share any verse with integrated email.

Bible Memory was designed and developed with the help of Hawk Ridge Consulting, LLC, a developer of unique and entertaining applications for the iPhone and iPod touch.

Device Requirements:
* iPhone or iPod touch 3.1.2 or later
