Versiculo: an Android Bible Verse App
The android application entitled “Versiculo: Light, Food, Weapon” has 10 most common positive human feelings and 10 most common negative human feelings. Every feeling has 10 corresponding verses, for the user to have a choice. After the user select his/her preferred verse, the lines of the verse will prompt to the screen and a voice over will narrate the verse. After the verse’ voice over, a brief preach related to the verse will play while the verse lines are still on the screen. After the preach, a biblical song related to the preach will automatically play and the verse lines will change into lyrics.
This app also allows user to save notes. And every day, a verse and a biblical trivia will prompt on user’s phone. (Preferably, this will prompt every 6am)
