Want more content?

jacobWithIpadHello wonderful BoM Touch users! We have an important question to ask you.

First, a short preface: We’ve created BoM Touch on the side of regular jobs, attending college, and growing our families. This has made for slower development than we’ve wanted.

We would love to update the app more frequently! We truly believe in it. You love the app, and it has helped you teach your kids the Book of Mormon! It is amazing to hear the stories you’ve shared and makes us want to work even harder.

Currently, we support the app by making money through in app purchases. We had hoped this bit of income would allow us to spend more time on the app. However, this has not been as successful.

Now to the question.

As we rework the app in a major way, we are considering new options for funding the creation of new content. Mainly, our thoughts arrive at the idea of making the app and all content free for everyone to enjoy. This is great because we want everyone to learn the stories of the Book of Mormon! However, it leaves us without income.

People have suggested placing ads in the app, but we feel it would take from the learning environment that we strive for in Book of Mormon Touch. We hate ads.

Our conclusion then would be to run on donations.

Those who would like to support the development of new content could donate on our website. Those who may not have money can support us by sharing the app with their friends. This approach places the development of new content in the hands of the users.

What are your thoughts and opinions about this idea?

Thanks,
Inner Active Studios

  1. I purchased book touch one. Two. And three and now my phone is stuck on the loop of down loading number three and will not open any of your down loads so I can use them. Please help me and fix this problem

  2. Sadly we missed the Steak conference this morning due to my children and myself being sick, but I feel that families that have benefited from this app should work on local fund raising through their church and local Mormon community. At Church I see a lot of the adults using their iPad’s or phones in place of the Bible. So I think to donate money toward an amazing app that help children learn The Book of Mormon is a great cause. It ads up to be less then .36 cents a chapter right? When worded like that I think that getting the kids evolved in raising money via their church would benefit the making of this app greatly!!
    I know my daughter is sad she has to move forward in her book with out the app the read along with her. As her mother I feel bad making her, but we can’t stop at Chapter 15 and wait for an update we don’t know when it will be ready.
