Passion of Jesus app offered FREE on Good Friday only

“In honor of Our Lord’s amazing love,” developers of the Passion of Jesus are offering their devotional app for FREE on Good Friday. Normally $1.99, for iOS and Android devices, it is offered as a FREE download for 24 hours FOR APPLE DECICES ONLY. Obviously, this app is an ideal treasure of a devotional aid for this particular holy day. Through this generosity, it is hoped more people will be introduced to developing a tender daily devotion to Jesus Christ and his passion.

What’s so unique about this app is it guides you through the last 24 hours of Jesus’ life–literally. Based on your time in your time zone, it offers meditations on where Our Lord Jesus was and what he was doing at that time.  You can also collapse the time to 8-hour and one-hour time spans. Meditations are served to your device throughout the day, each presenting a passion image corresponding to the time of day. As developers note: “Each image has a corresponding reflection, response and suggested prayer intentions….The primary goal of this reflection is to engage believers to ponder and reflect on each aspect of the Passion by allowing time and eternity to intersect, by allowing the power of the cross to pour into our daily lives, no matter where we are or what we are doing….for a few moments, to pause and cast a glance at our Lord and permit this awesome, life-changing reality to bear fruit, to illumine, to set free & to save.

Languages: English, Spanish, Tagalog, French, Hindi, Italian, Portuguese. Take a look at how the app works.

    Dear Jennifer:

    Wishing you a very blessed Good Friday.

    My very sincere ‘THANKS’ to you for spreading the word about the Passion of Jesus app – gone free for 24 hours.

    Since this is my first attempt going ‘free’ – I’m also learning as I go.

    1) Apple does tend to have a more streamlined system to allow for such price changes, and it is quite straight-forward. Hence, developers can offer such promotions i.e. Paid to Free for apps that run on Apple devices.

    2) Google/Android – is quite another system and it isn’t as flexible and doesn’t really allow a ‘Paid to Free’ and back to ‘Paid’ again. Hence, the current promotion cannot run on Android devices.

    If users click on your article links, they’ll land on the Apple store and can download for ‘Free’ for a day.

    I’ve also clearly mentioned that right upfront on my website – that this promo is for Apple devices only.

    3) Currency issues – again I’m learning as well. With all the fluctuations in currency exchange rates, the price of an app can vary. For example, in the US the app is priced at $1.99, however, there’s no price tier for $1.99 in Canada. The Apple corresponding price is $2.29 and the Google corresponding price is $2.59.

    Needless to say, it is confusing and doesn’t lend for a standardized approach when marketing or having to deal with frustrated users.

    Anycase, I just wanted to clarify and share what I am learning – while you may also receive some feedback from your users – at least you have some of the background info, from a Developer perspective.

    Thank you so much Jennifer.

    Easter blessings, Ben

    Thank you Jennifer! This looks like a great app! I would like to download it today but Google Play says it is $1.98. Is there a code number or something we need to put in to get it free today?

      I see now it is only for Apple devices. Unfortunate for us android users.
