Pompano Beach, FL, January 18, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Two innovative market leaders are reigniting children’s love of Scripture by invading the digital world. Merging technology with the best-selling book of all time, the Bible App for Kids became available for free download beginning Thanksgiving Day for the more than 1 billion active smartphone users around the world.
“The Bible App for Kids is meeting children where they are—playing digital games—and getting them excited about the stories in God’s Word,” said OneHope President Rob Hoskins, co-creator of the app. “It’s imperative that we create relevant Bible content where kids spend their time. We have to speak to them where they are and in their language.”
Developed by YouVersion—creator of the most popular Bible app of all time—in partnership with OneHope—an international ministry that is changing lives by sharing Scripture with children and youth around the world—the Bible App for Kids has the potential to reach millions of children around the globe.
“It just made so much sense for OneHope—who is all about engaging children with the Word of God—and YouVersion—whose Bible app has been downloaded more than 100 million times—to work together to develop the Bible App for Kids,” added Hoskins. “This is a game changer. And one I’m really excited about.”
Launched with six fully animated Bible stories, the app includes touch-activated animations and activities to help children ages 4 – 10 remember what they learn. New stories will be added regularly, and the content will always be free.
The Bible App for Kids will also make it possible to reach children in countries where evangelism is difficult, but where smart phones are prevalent. Translations to other languages are already underway and planned for future release.
The launch of the app follows on the heels of YouVersion celebrating its Bible App’s 100 millionth download in July and just precedes OneHope reaching its billionth child with the Gospel in early 2014.
