Tap Tap Studio Updates Classic Daily Devotional Series for iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad

Classic Daily Devotional Series Now Available in Apple’s App Store

KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA – July 10, 2012 – Tap Tap Studio today announced that their series of classic daily devotionals is now available for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. The classic daily devotional series includes Daily Light, Daily Scripture, Daily Faith, Daily Streams and Daily Strength; are versions of classic devotional favorites updated with bible verses from the modern NET Bible.

The devotional series are based on the public domain versions of classic devotionals.

  • Daily Streams – Streams in the Desert by Mrs. Charles Cowman

Daily devotionals have a long tradition among Christians. Having them as an iPhone app, makes it convenient to have a daily time of spiritual reading, reflection and prayer anywhere. These devotional apps are designed to be read offline and features bookmarking, progress tracking and sharing of devotional content through facebook and email. The reading font type and size are customizable.

These classic devotionals have nourished the spiritual lives of countless Christians over the years. By updating them with bible verses from the modern NET Bible, I hope these devotionals will continue to nourish the souls of a new generation of Christians, with the precious legacy of devotional thoughts from great Christian authors of the past. – Victor Goh, founder of Tap Tap Studio.

Tap Tap Studio, an independent mobile apps studio based out of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, was founded in 2012 by Victor Goh for the purpose of creating fun and engaging apps to encourage personal and spiritual growth.

Daily Scripture – Morning and Evening with the NET Bible

I’ve been busy this past month working on Daily Scripture, an iOS and Android app for Charles Spurgeon’s classic Morning and Evening with bible verses taken from the modern NET Bible.

Charles H. Spurgeon was a British preacher who is known as the “Prince of Preachers”. In his lifetime, Spurgeon preached to around 10 million people and was a profilic author of many types of works including sermons, an autobiography, commentaries, books on prayer, devotionals, magazines, poetry, hymns and more. Many Christians have discovered Spurgeon’s messages to be among the best in Christian literature.

Morning and Evening contains 732 devotionals with one devotional for the morning and another for the evening for an entire year.

Now, you can read the daily devotions from Morning and Evening on your iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch/Android smartphone or tablet.

Get the full (paid) or lite (free) version from the iTunes App Store, Google Play or Amazon Android App Store.

YouDevotion – Taking Over from Classic Devotionals

YouDevotion.com website

Classic Devotionals is now known as YouDevotion. You can read the following devotionals

at YouDevotion.com. The site uses responsive web design making it look good and readable on your smartphone, tablet or PC. The site will work equally well on Opera mini browsers and PC/Mac web browsers on wide-screen monitors.

YouDevotion.com on the iPhone YouDevotion.com on the iPhone YouDevotion.com on the iPhone

The name YouDevotion is obviously inspired by YouTube and YouVersion.

I’m working on adding Faith Checkbook by Charles Spurgeon to YouDevotion soon. Hope you’ll enjoy reading the devotionals at YouDevotion.com.

Reading Daily Devotional RSS Feeds on Your Cell Phone

I’ve just finished the beta version of my website for an Offline Mobile RSS Feed Reader for java enabled cell phones. It’s basically a website that generates RSS Feed Reader java apps with embedded RSS feeds as content. The reason for embedded RSS feeds is to make a usable Feed Reader without the need for a GPRS or 3G data connection. Not everyone subscribes to a data package for their cell phone.

An Offline RSS Feed Reader is especially useful for those places where you cannot get a good data connection. It’s frustrating trying to surf the net using your phone when the data connection is slow or unstable. The phone browser cycle of click, wait, read a bit, click again, wait again, read a bit again … is tiring.

So, how do you read the latest RSS Feeds if the RSS Feeds are embedded with the java app? Just download the latest java app with the latest RSS feeds onto your PC and transfer it to your phone again.

Currently I have Charisma Magazine and Heartlight.org daily devotional auto-refreshed and re-generated twice a day. Just get the latest jar file from http://www.jarss.com.

Charisma Magazine RSS Feed Reader Heartlight.org Daily Devotional

The Charisma Magazine daily devotionals include the RSS feeds for:

  • Around the Word in 365 Days
  • By Love Transformed
  • Live Extraordinarily
  • Smith Wigglesworth

Mobile Daily Devotions on the Apple iPhone?

Will the new Apple iPhone be able to run mobile Java applications?

There’s no mention of Java support for the iPhone on Apple’s site. So, the outlook for Java support seems bleak. That’s just sad. The gorgeous iPhone screen would make it great device for reading mobile devotions or the Bible.

If Apple decides to open the iPhone for third party applications, Laridian should come up with something for the Apple iPhone. Laridian has excellent Bible software for the Palm,Pocket PCs, Windows Smartphones, iPods and BlackBerry devices. They are a well known and reputable mobile software company. Hopefully, Apple will allow them to develop Bible software for the Apple iPhone.

The iPhone will only be available in Asia in 2008. That’s a one year wait for me if I decide to get an iPhone as my next cell phone. A lot of things could happen within one year. Hopefully by then, Apple will have included support for mobile java applications on the iPhone and Laridian releases a Bible software for the iPhone.
