iTalk to God is WorldLink Apps’ first, and most successful, application on the Apple and Android app stores. With over 100,000 downloads and a peak position at number five in the iTunes reference category, we’ve been very pleased with the response to the app so far.
Launched in September 2009, the application facilitates a personal conversation between you and God. You simply select one of over 70 categories describing how you are currently feeling. iTalk to God then displays a series of up to 10 verses specific to how you are feeling, including a brief commentary on each verse. The verses and comments are meant to provide comfort and encouragement to the user in a very personal and meaningful way.
iTalk to God is available in 9 different versions of the bible, along with three Lite versions (for free). It’s also available in English, Spanish, and Chinese. The main difference between the paid versions and the free versions is how many verses you see per category. The number of categories and sub-categories are the same, but the paid version has 8-10 verses per category, and the Lite versions have only 2 verses.
Some additional features will be released soon including, finger swiping, backward verse traversal, and sharing via SMS texting. You’ll also be able to view a list of all our released apps and have the ability to purchase them directly from the application. An update will be posted once the release is final, but make sure you keep your eyes peeled over the next few weeks.
When we were exploring ideas for our first app iTalk to God was near the bottom of the list of ideas. After going through all of them, iTalk to God stood out as the most unique and relevant out of all our initial ideas. Taking the daily quote generator one step further and adding a personal twist by asking someone “How are you feeling today” was a niche that had yet to be filled. Mike Hall, our VP of Development, was the visionary on this project with a goal to offer people an app that would bring comfort to the user through scripture.
