Option to subscribe to daily devotionals, inspirational messages or Bible passages sent directly to your phone.
Daily devotionals are publications which provide a specific spiritual reading for each calendar day. They tend to be associated with a daily time of prayer and meditation. Daily devotionals have a long tradition in religious communities, with the earliest known Christian example being the Gælic Feliré written in Ireland in the Ninth Century.
Daily devotionals, while common among Christians, can be found in many other traditions as well. Classic examples of devotionals include Leo Tolstoy's The Reading Circle
Electronic daily devotional
My Phone is an online service with a companion mobile client application from Microsoft. The service, which launched on October 6, 2009, provides a free mobile phone back-up solution by wirelessly synchronizing contacts, calendar appointments, tasks, text messages, browser favorites, photos, music, video and documents with a password-protected online portal where users can access and manage their information. The service also enables photo sharing and, in some markets, a set of features for dealing with a lost phone that are sold as a Premium Package requiring a one-time fee. My Phone supports Windows Mobile OS versions 6.0, 6.1 and 6.5 and is available globally in 25 languages. The service uses Windows Live ID for authentication and the Windows Live server infrastructure for storing user information. On June 8, 2011, Microsoft announced that My Phone would be discontinued with sync from phones ending on August 7, 2011 and website access to data ending on October 6, 2011. Data (Contacts, calendar entries, text messages and photos) will be moved to SkyDrive.
An electronic daily devotional is inspirational Christian, Bible-based material that can be delivered through a variety of channels. Unlike Bible software that is designed for in-depth Bible study, daily devotionals in electronic form are designed to focus the mind on one or two thoughts.
Devotional classics such as Oswald Chamber's My Utmost for His Highest went electronic as a part of Bible software book collections when Bible software emerged in the 1980s in response to the capabilities of personal computers. These early versions were awkward to scroll through. The emergence of the internet in the 1990s prompted an explosion of online daily devotional offerings. With the advent of cell phones, iPods and smart phones, mobile delivery of daily devotionals has changed even more.
