Sing Hymns of Praise to Uplift Your Soul

Enrich Your Relationship with God Through Inspiring Stories
This app curates podcasts and sermons tailored for the Christian audience that you can be updated automatically when there are new episodes available. In your free time or even while you’re on the go with the app’s AirPlay capability and Lock screen controls, listen to stories from guests from all walks of life and be encouraged by their true experiences and how God touched their lives.
Yup, this is just like Netflix but packed with Christian TV shows and movies that’s a perfect spiritually-nourishing weekend idea (or even weekday) with the family, could come especially handy when mass media gets too overwhelming with not-so-wholesome content.
Share Inspiration to the World
Have a memorable photo you know would be complete with a Bible verse caption? This app does just that plus amazing filters you can apply to your verse. What makes this app more awesome is it suggests a verse that’s related to the photo you want to edit, say “Go, eat your food with gladness, and drink your wine with a joyful heart, for it is now that God favors what you do.” - Ecclesiastes 9:7 if you have a photo of food.
This app is ready to serve you over 3,000 Bible verses, each one at a time you pre-set. The verse will be shown on your phone with a serene natural background perfect for screenshotting and sharing on your social media to radiate positive and inspiring energy to your loved ones.
For the Kids
Having trouble weaning the little ones from the addicting games on the iPad? Try this one to start them young with Bible stories. The fun games and activities contained in the app are sure to get them hooked, but, more importantly, rich in good values.
That was a handful, wasn’t it? Hope you find this listicle helpful.
