[prMac.com] Seoul, Korea, Republic Of - YFactory today is pleased to announce A Verse A Day 1.8 - Start of a Beautiful Day for iOS, an update to their reference app that delivers a new Bible verse every morning, and is ready with special verses in four different categories for any time of day. The new, built-in alarm clock feature lets users set the time they would like to awaken. An ideal way to start the day with inspiration and resolve, the app offers a useful "thought for the day." A Verse A Day features more than 1,000 of the most popular Bible verses in its built-in library, and any verse can be easily shared with friends and family via in-app email, SMS, and Facebook connectivity. Free monthly updates add new verses.
Featuring a GUI that tastefully blends modern colors and design with ancient stone and sacred text, the app eschews religious iconography as part of its purpose, which is to offer in brief aphorisms the wisdom of the Bible to as many people as possible. Whether a user would think of themselves as religious or not, A Verse A Day is designed to appeal to all people appreciative of insight, inspiration, direction, and a wider perspective.
