YouVersion announced that its eagerly awaited Bible App for Kids that was released on Thanksgiving day was downloaded to a million unique devices during the first week.
The release date seemed to work especially well for the spiritual tool aimed at young people. According the the YouVersion blog, a lot of the success of the Bible Apps for Kids can be attributed to to its visibility in the app stores.
Some cool stats for iDevices in the first 12 hours (via the YouVersion Bog):
- #1 free Kids app
- #1 free Education app
- #2 overall free iPad app
- #4 overall free iPhone app
Numbers aside, it’s an excellent bridge between technology and God’s word that can be celebrated.
