I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas yesterday and in the spirit of celebrating the birth of Jesus I wanted to update you on the Soulbyte product that I wrote about in the summer. Soulbytes are compilations of Scripture verses paraphrased in today's language with a selection of modern music genres that play in the background. The news this week is that they have released an iPhone-optimized version of their site that you can find at m.soulbyte.com. You will find a landing page with a bunch of different categories that you then select and choose from different music background choices to listen to. I also tried this mobile page on a couple of other devices and it works pretty well. They are working on optimizing for other platforms too, including BlackBerry.
Soulbytes are arranged by topics such as knowing God, courage, finances, trust, drawing near, and many more so you can easily find something for your situation. The choices for background music include alternative, easy listening, hip hop, pop/rock, and more. They are professionally narrated and sound wonderful.
They also launched their Partner program where you or your church can pay a small monthly fee to have them host your media content and have it optimized for the iPhone. This seems like a nice service that can help save you money instead of having to pay a developer to create an iPhone application for you. On your iPhone go to occ.soulbyte.com to check out one of their Partner's mobile platforms.
