Nonprofit’s app will provide visually captivating Personal Prayer Places

Putting ‘reflection’ time and spirituality back into the smartphone graphical, eye-candy media mix…

In today’s hyper-active society full of too much media consumption, too much work, and too many extracurricular activities, there is less time being spent in contemplation, reflection, and prayer.  Because of this trend, many faith-community leaders (pastors, ministers, priests, rabbis – all alike) are asking their congregation to put down their devices, pick up their prayerbook, and spend more quiet time reading scripture and praying.  While this plea to address our daily spiritual needs is important – feeding our soul with spirituality invigorates our mind and body.  Is this a realistic plea by faith-community leaders?   I think not – particularly for our younger generations.  Many folks, especially teens and 20-somethings, have formed an addictive habit of filling any downtime they have with activities on their smartphone – texting, Facebook’ing, Instagram’ing, Vine’ing, SnapChat’ing, Tweeting, etc.

So, rather rather than fight this trend of filling our downtime with smartphone social networking activities; thereby, missing out on what little time folks have to contemplate, reflect, be thankful, and pray, one group is planning to put these spiritual activities back ‘into the media mix’.  By creating visually captivating personal prayer places for folks to escape to on Facebook, mobile and tablets, GivingVu (“Giving View”), a Colorado-based nonprofit, plans to help folks feed their spirit – balancing their mind-body-soul temple. This service / app, entitled, FaithVu – Your Personal Prayer Place, is GivingVu’s first nonprofit project.

The FaithVu app project has partnered with Prefundia, a platform for building support for crowd-funding projects before they launch, to preview its ‘found-raising’ campaign coming soon to Kickstarter.

The FaithVu app will help folks get closer to God by witnessing and sharing God’s graces through inspiring prayer experiences.  FaithVu is powered by GivingVu.org, Inc., a Colorado nonprofit corporation focused on spiritual development and charity work. GivingVu’s mission is to enable services and digital apps that increase the GIVING acts of FAITH, HELP, and CHARITY amongst communities.  FaithVu’s ultimate prayer experience will deliver a visually captivating personal prayer place for people to access as an app on smartphones, tablets, and Fb.

Businesses are now turning to the online world for a wider customer base. If you want to start an online business, it is important to consider a website that features a professional look. Despite the quality of the content being the most important factor to consider in a website, the first impressions of the website is very important. You will earn a lot of trust from visitors as long as your website features a professional look. If your site looks messy, even when you have good content and attractive products and/or services to sell, visitors will be reluctant to visit the website again. Therefore, if you are serious about having an online business, it is important to consider investing on website templates.

dataveyes.com  650x336 10 Examples Of Beautiful Vertical Navigation To Inpsire You

Vertical navigation bars on websites often get a bad press but we have given you 10 beautiful examples of how they can design really well and improve user experience and the aesthetics of a website. With the proliferation of horizontal navigation menus it is refreshing to see different menu layouts employed that don’t leave the visitor confused about where to click (as they often do when unconventional layouts are used) or detract from the main content of the page by being overly intrusive.

In order to inspire you in your own designs we have chosen websites with various different styles of fixed side menus and vertical navigation -  some of the examples below have collapsable side navigation bars, some employ sliding animation, some are fixed, some are on the left and some are on the right. See the 10 websites here – I hope they inspire you in your own designs.

An email template design can do wonders for the emails you send. Some people say it could bring color to its dull life, while others say that it could make your letters more attractive. But even if this is the case if it isn’t compatible to the browser or email client your reader is using, then don’t expect something life changing to happen here.
Email template design compatibility has always been an issue. In some browsers and email clients your email may look wonderful, magnificent or maybe even perfect but if you’ll test in other browsers it will suck and look like hell. A lot of these compatibility problems we’re present a long time ago, but with better programming universality today, this issue has been rectified a little bit.
