Immersion Digital releases a new update of Glo that gives iPad and iPhone users access to a new lens – the Atlas.
ORLANDO, Florida – August 15, 2011 – Glo, the media-rich interactive Bible and Winner of the 2010 Bible of the Year, has released a new update to bring the world of the Bible directly to the iPad and iPhone – for free.
IOS users now have access to the Glo Atlas lens, which links geographic locations directly to Bible verses, articles and Glo media over a zoomable atlas. Tapping on locations reveals photos, 360-degree virtual tours, artwork and scripture related to the location of choice. The atlas can be explored by zooming and panning, or when reading bible passages, users can send a verse to the Atlas Lens to see locations related to the verse of choice. The Atlas also includes 8 samples of maps, from the 140 maps available in Glo Premium, that give context to Bible stories or time periods. This update is free for all iOS Glo users, including Glo Lite and Glo Premium users. This release marks the first time the Glo Atlas Lens has been available outside the PC and Mac versions of Glo Premium.
“Our Glo team values the feedback we get from our community of users, and one of the most requested features on the iPad and iPhone was the Atlas,” says Nelson Saba, CEO of Immersion Digital. “We are very excited to release an interactive Atlas Lens for both our iPad and iPhone apps.”
In addition to the Atlas, this recent release has a new, streamlined Media Lens to give users easier and faster accessibility to the media available in Glo. This updated Media Lens is available on all Glo platforms – iPad, iPhone, Mac and PC. Download Glo for free on Mac, PC, iPad and iPhone worldwide from www.globible.com.
