Tech Startup Bible APP Dev Team Launches a Brand New Bible App to Jumpstart Its Business
Bible - KJV,NIV and etc. is a new launch by the Bible APP Dev Team, committed to bringing God's words to people all around the world using cutting-edge technologies. Young as it is, the startup is aiming high. It seems quite ambitious to have its share in the market that is no stranger to new entrants.
“We are crazy about making the best apps,” said co-founder Mr. Ryan Lau, who looked quite ambitious talking about their new product. “Our goal is to offer the best we could to our customers, and I believe we are doing just that with Bible - KJV,NIV and etc.”
Whether they are living up to their promise might require a glimpse at the app. User interface is quite simple and intelligible, with a banner guiding users on their bible journey. As a Bible e-reader, it is equipped with such basic features as easy multiple verses copy/ paste, night/ day mode for low/ strong light reading, margin notes for readers' own thoughts next to the relevant verses, bookmarks, power folder system, history view and ease share via a variety of platforms. On top of it, Bible - KJV,NIV and etc. allows users to make reading plans and to be reminded when they fall behind.
Given that the company kicked off its tech journey with a Bible app, is there anything that makes it distinguishable from other already highly recognized, broad customer based Bible e-readers? Mr. Lau has this in response, "Ours is available for offline read, which means no internet connection is needed for downloaded content, and by the way, everything is available for downloading. It's just like a regular book, only it's smaller and smarter, saving all the trouble of flipping back and forth."
People may ask how could a group of Chinese tech savvy geeks who are not even Christians know what is the best app for God's believers? "We know how fantastic it would be when belief and technology are combined. We provide more than 300 Bible versions in hundreds of languages and thousands of holy songs in 40+ languages. We are essentially creating more than an app but a philosophy," Mr. Lau put it this way.
Technology gets closer to life when new entrants challenge the old, as was the case when Apple rivaled Nokia with its new touch-screen phone that spawned so many app innovations in the first place.
It seems that the Bible App Dev Team is determined to have a global reach with what Mr. Lau claimed "a concise user interface with a daily verse accompanied by a gorgeous graphic." Still, it’s up to the users to decide if Bible - KJV,NIV and etc. is an apple in their eyes.
