Recently on Revelife, there was a post about a purity ring iPhone application. Well, today I came across a short article on a new iPhone application awaiting approval. The application is called "A Note to God" through which users could post prayers to God and send them to other users. I don’t have anything against the creation of iPhone applications, but what about religious applications? I’ve been told that prayer is just talking to God like you would a friend. Do Christians really need an iPhone application in order to prayer?
I have a feeling that Christians are going to be getting a wave of “Christian” products marketed to them in digital format. The iPhone may just be the thing that delivers them to us. I know that all products aren’t bad, but sometimes the line needs to be drawn.
Should we really encourage more religious oriented applications? How do you feel about religious oriented iPhone applications?
