Christian Facebook Covers – Evangelize with your profile!

Christian Facebook Covers In September of 2011, Facebook introduced the new profile upgrade they called Timeline. I am a big fan of the new layout for many different reasons, but the main one is the cover image. The cover image is now a huge part of your profile. It’s probably the first thing people see, because its takes up the most real estate when you first view a profile. This presents some awesome opportunities to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with your friends and others who visit your profile. Awhile back a friend of mine made the suggestion that I should take my Bible Lock Screens idea and start making Facebook Cover images. It was a “duh moment” for me and I was sad that the idea never occurred to me. Nonetheless, I was thankful for the suggestion and decided to include a section for cover images in my new Bible Lock Screen app update. On April 12, 2012, Apple approved my latest app update, where I introduced many new features, including the “Facebook Cover Gallery” full of bible-based images made specifically for your Facebook Covers. As of today, we have 22 Christian Facebook covers available and they were made near the public launch of Timeline for all Facebook users. All the images look great when you view your profile from a laptop or desktop computer. Unfortunately, Facebook changed the way they display the cover image about a month after I made the first batch of cover images to now zoom in on the images when viewed from their mobile apps. In the next round of Facebook...

Christian iPhone Apps (part 1)

What are your favorite Christian iPhone apps? In a sea of apps, many Christian developers, churches & ministries have come up numerous iPhone apps centered on spreading the Good News, the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We now have Bible apps that allow you to use your iPhone as your primary Bible, church apps that allow you to stay in touch with what’s going on in your local church and a variety of other apps with Jesus Christ at the center. I love technology and the idea of making Christian iPhone apps is something that I have thought about since Apple released the App Store a few years ago. Using technology to move the Word of God is a fun and easy way to evangelize and help others in times of need. Below is my first round up of Christian iPhone apps that have really blessed me. What are your favorite Christian iPhone apps? Comment below.   Christian iPhone apps: Round up #1 1. The Bible App™ (Free) I love the people at YouVersion (LifeChurch.tv) and all that they have done to bring the Word of God to every cell phone on the planet… for free! I can tell you that it wasn’t free for them and yet they have taken on this gigantic task and have done so in an amazing way. The Bible App™ is free, let’s you download most english versions to your iPhone (so you don’t have to be connected to the internet), and allows for easy sharing via Facebook, Twitter, email and text messaging. It’s so awesome and has a TON of features! They continue...

How to witness with your iPhone & iPad!

Sharing your faith with others can be difficult at times, but now with Bible Lock Screens (iTunes link) for iPhone, iPad & iPod Touch, it just got a lot easier. Apple devices are extremely social. If someone has an iPad in the room, others will probably want to see it or use it. Let’s face it, they are really cool! People that have not had the chance to hold an iPad in their hands, want to! So, this presents an interesting opportunity for witnessing. Your friend asks to see your iPad, you hand it to them and the first thing they see is Scripture! Pretty cool! This is a very non-intrusive way of sharing Scripture with whoever touches your iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch. Any of our Bible Lock Screens would be good for this kind of thing, but here are a couple that would be great in this kind of situation: Romans 10:9 & 1 John 4:16 (Download them with the links below) God is Love (iPhone) and God is Love (iPad) Jesus is Lord (iPhone) and Jesus is Lord...

Bible Lock Screens on Flickr

Flickr.com is one of the most popular photo sharing websites in the world (if not the most popular). So we decided to make all of our Bible Lock Screens for iPhone & iPad available on Flickr for download as well. We think this will help more people find Bible Lock Screen wallpapers and hopefully bless a lot more people. Flickr is a community of people centered around photos and hopefully there will be a community of Christians that are blessed with godly lock screens for their iPads, iPhones & iPod Touches. Here is our Flickr Photostream. We hoping to ramp it up soon with more people contributing to Bible Lock Screens, created their own lock screens with Bible verses on them and then submitting them to our website for posting. If you are good with graphics and interested in helping, feel free to contact us. God bless...

iPad – Bible Lock Screens

Have an iPad? We recently added a bunch of iPad Bible Lock Screens to the mix. They work in both landscape & portrait views. We have many more on the way as well. These iPad Bible Lock Screens are good for many reasons: 1. They help keep Scripture on your mind. 2. They help you remember key Bible verses. If you are like us, you use your iPad daily, so that means a lot of opportunity to see a particular verse or verses. 3. They are great witnessing tools and conversation starters. You may have friends over hanging out and if your iPad is being used in the group, they will get to see your Bible Lock Screens. 4. They are better than random (meaningless) backgrounds. Putting the Word of God on your mind daily is going to help you walk with God and obey His Word. So check out our iPad – Bible Lock Screens, we really hope you like them. As always, your feedback is welcomed and...
