MEDIA ADVISORY, July 2 /Christian Newswire/ -- BCNmultimedia today is pleased to announce the release of Children's Bible 1.4, an update to their internationally successful free app for iPhone OS. Each week the app provides free access to a different full color Children's Bible comic book, presenting a classic story from the Old or New Testament. Published in seven languages, it has ranked in the top 50 book downloads in the US App Store from the first day of its release in 2009. Premium content is also available as an in-app purchase.
The Children's Bible contains comic books on the Bible for children between ages 3 and 13. The content of The Children's Bible covers the most important passages of Sacred History and the Gospels. BCNmultimedia has designed the app with the free comic book changing every Monday, so teachers in Sunday Schools and catechists can plan lessons around them. Each free comic book consists of 30 full color pages, which are excerpted from the company's library of paid comic books: The Genesis, The Exodus, Kings and Prophets, Birth of Jesus, Parables and Miracles, Passion of Jesus Christ, Old Testament (compilation), and New Testament (compilation).
The colorful, easy to navigate app has garnered over 125,000 downloads over the past six months, and supports the following languages: English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, and Catalan. The latest version features improved design with larger buttons, an auto-notification system for new comics, and improved speed and reliability of downloads using 3G or Wi-Fi. Introduced in version 1.3 was the extremely popular auto-play function. The comic books themselves have received widespread acclaim for their clear writing, brilliant color, realism, and drama.
