New App Helps Users Memorize Scripture and Leads Player to Christ

No Comments

Portsmouth, England – Billy Graham would love this app if he had it on his smartphone. In fact, if the Rev. Dr. Billy Graham were an app developer then for sure he would have developed Zion Quest. Zion Quest, a Christian adventure game intended to win souls, change lives and enhance users’ knowledge of the Bible, was instead developed by Femi Richard Folorunso and released just in time for the Christmas shopping season.

This biblically-based app has forty levels of game play. The last four levels are fixed and structured purposely to enable the player to make a Decision for Christ. A pioneering app, Zion Quest is the first role playing Bible game that directly applies Bible verses to combat situations in game mode.

“There has never been a game like it,” says Folorunso. “Many Christians carry the Holy Bible with them daily but cannot recite two verses correctly. More levels will be added to the game as time goes on.”

The themes interwoven in the game are Spiritual Wickedness, Encounters with the Devil, Walking Through Fire, and Arrow That Flies by Day. Each level is a graphical description of a particular Bible scenario. The player needs to apply the right Bible passage to progress to the next level. The full Bible text is displayed when the Bible option is right. The Player receives a crown of salvation on successful completion of all levels.

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
* Requires iOS 4.3 or later
* 86.9 MB

Pricing and Availability:
Developed by Folorunso’s company, Diaspora Media Ltd., Zion Quest 2.1 is Free and available worldwide through the App Store in the Games category. It is also available on Google Play Store, Windows App Store and Amazon App Store.

Long Island, New York – Announcing Puzzle the Picture, a new game from Mika Johansen, an indie developer from Norway. Made just for those of you who love placing that final piece that completes a puzzle, this app now let’s you get your jigsaw fix online, so puzzles go with you, wherever you go.

Puzzle the Picture is a free fun and addictive iPhone multiplayer game. The goal is to put together an image from a stack of tiles in the shortest amount of time. You can challenge your friends, play against random opponents, or play in single-player mode. The choice is yours.

It has pretty easy and userfriendly interface, just try it and you’ll see.”

Tokyo, Japan – Dolice today is proud to announce the updated Cool Wallpapers HD 6,000+ sheets for iPhone 6/6 Plus/5s/5c/5, and iPod. There’s no reason you need to settle for a standard-looking lock screen or home screen on your mobile device when instead you could customize it. The Cool Wallpapers HD 6,000+ sheets app can be used on your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone to completely change up how your device looks. Use these on your lock and/or home screen and what’s really cool is that the app is updated daily with new exciting choices.

A Huge Selection of Free Options:
This app provides you with more than 8,000 free wallpapers that you can download and then save to your device. What’s great is that it has also been optimized to work with iOS 7 and iOS 8′s parallax effect. There are 14 categories of wallpapers to choose from, which also makes it easy to find what you’re looking for. During your browsing just add wallpapers to your favorites folder so they are there when you want to use them.

As you view the wallpapers in the gallery you’ll find that they are displayed as full screen and they are shown as a slideshow. If you come across ones that you think are perfect for your family and friends why not share them through Twitter, Facebook, email, and Instagram. There has been a pretty extensive update recently that basically gives users a whole lot more of everything. There are more wallpapers, they are now updated daily, the favorites list is all new, the wallpaper categories are all new, the ability to share on Instagram is new, minor bugs have been fixed, and so much more. The app scores quite high with users getting four out of five stars from them.

The User Experience:
Despite the fact that you have such a wide selection available to you the app itself remains incredibly easy to use. You can view the wallpapers in full screen as mentioned or as a thumbnail if you’d rather. You can enable the push notification to get information whenever updates are made, and there is a list function so that you can check out the most popular and the latest wallpapers. I find the app incredibly easy and enjoyable to browse through. I really like all the cool wallpapers you can discover and the category groupings make navigation much easier. The only downfall for me is the ad banner that appears across the bottom of the screen as it can be a bit distracting.

Pros and Cons:

Pros:
* There are more than 8,000 wallpapers and more are constantly being added
* Mark wallpapers as favorites
