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.

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.

The Forgotten Danger: Mobile Phones

Many people make efforts to protect themselves online and this is an excellent practice.  I know of a number of families who use tools such as Safe Eyes and restrict what access their children have. What I find interesting is that as more and more teenagers and adults use smartphones, these devices go almost fully unprotected.  This means that children potentially have access to everything on the internet with no restrictions. And since a phone is portable it can be taken anywhere and to hidden locations.

Parents should be proactive in protecting their children from internet dangers by monitoring what is being done on these devices.  There are a number of safety tools that can help and we will be exploring these tools in the coming months.
