Podium Pro iPad App Released

Podium Pro iPad app for public speaking and preachingA few weeks ago I posted a short article about a new iPad app in development that promises to be of help for all public speakers including preachers.

The app’s developers just released “Podium Pro Lite” to Apple’s App Store. You can find it here. Best of all is the price: free.

I am presently downloading the app my iPad… after I have a chance to mess around with it and use it I plan to write a full review here on Digital Sojourner.

Have you given the app a try? I would appreciate hearing your thoughts in the comments.

Preaching With An iPad – There’s A New App For That

 

Two of the most popular posts on Digital Sojourner explored the use of an iPad as an aid for preaching. Those posts are available here and here.

I recently discovered that there is a new iPad app currently under development that holds great promise for all public speakers, including preachers. The app, Podium Pro, is still in private beta but should be available soon in the app store.

When the app is released Digital Sojourner will write a comprehensive review.

The app is being designed by public speakers for public speakers. Several functions that preachers will find helpful are being built into the app. Some of those features are: word processing, Dropbox integration, count down timer, count up timer, overtime clock, ability to record and share your sermon, and much more.

Becoming a Student of the Word

The Bible Psalm 51

“All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:16-17

It is our responsibility to become a student of the Word. Being a student of the Word does not mean the Bible is something that we casually read. We must be committed to studying the Word of God. So many have lost the desire to study the Word of God. When we watch our favorite sports team or the next big movie we get excited, and we can’t wait until the next Harry Potter book comes out. How come we don’t get excited about the Word of God?

The New eBible Android App

eBible Android AppDo you use an Android device? Are you looking for a basic, easy to use Bible app? An app that is so easy to use that it will take you to your desired scripture passage by simply saying the reference? If so I recommend trying the new eBible Android app.

According to the eBible blog the app is still in the testing phase, so you might encounter a few minor glitches. However I found the app to function as advertised.

The app is simple, clean and easy to use. Several major English translations are available including my personal favorite the English Standard Version (ESV). The app also has an audio feature so you can listen to the Bible (at the moment, only ESV is available in audio format).

Best of all the app is free, so give it a try and let us know what you think in the comments.

Preaching With An iPad — There’s An App For That

 

In a recent post, 5 Thoughts: Preaching with an iPad, I lamented the difficulty of simultaneously using the iPad as a Bible and a notebook. Switching between a Bible app and an app with my notes is much too distracting– not only for me but also for the audience who can probably see me fiddling with the iPad.

As mentioned in the article, preaching is about Christ not the tools we are using. The objective of preaching is not to impress or “wow” a crowd with the tools or the technology being used, the object is to proclaim the Word of God and to proclaim the person of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Since writing that post, someone was kind enough to tell me about a Bible app that allows you to simultaneously view the scripture text and your notes on a split screen.
