media_1276715219907.png

Virginia based Mobilize Faith, LLC today announced Bible Memory 1.2, a free update to its best-selling Bible study and verse memorization app for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad devices. Designed to creatively utilize the interactive features of the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, Bible Memory helps users have fun and stay engaged while memorizing Bible scripture. Version 1.2 allows users to add, edit, and categorize an unlimited number of Bible verses in any translation and in any language.

"The Bible is personal. Scripture speaks differently to different people," says Petra Barrientos, Managing Partner of Mobilize Faith. "Our original version was designed to make it easy to commit Scripture to heart with pre-selected verses. With this upgrade we give our users complete flexibility in choosing the Bible verses they want to memorize."

Bible Memory can be used in conjunction with other Bible study and devotional guides that encourage Bible verse memorization. The Bible Memory app has been designed to creatively utilize the interactive features of the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad to help users have fun and stay engaged while memorizing Bible scripture:

* Each Bible verse is presented in three learning modes: read the Bible verse; review the verse a phrase at a time as users practice their ability to recall words of scripture; and complete three rounds of timed, fill-in-the-blank quizzes that become more difficult.

* Bible Memory not only helps users memorize verses, it also creates a support system for scripture study and extends the benefits through social networking and sharing. Users can share scripture via Facebook by posting verses directly onto their Facebook wall from within the Bible Memory App.

* The app allows users to identify up to three Bible study partners who are notified of progress and who can help keep users accountable.

* Users can set an audible alert to remind them that it is time to study.

* Automatic quizzes test retention of previously memorized verses.

* Metrics provide visual feedback on overall progress, by category, and by retention quiz results.

* Users can share any verse with integrated email and help others expand their Bible Memory library.
Bible Memory was designed and developed with the help of Hawk Ridge Consulting, LLC, a developer of unique and entertaining applications for the iPhone and iPod touch.

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad
* Requires iPhone OS 3.0 or later
* 2.2 MB
