I’m going to start this month's update by offering the most exciting news first: the ACIM CE App will be making its public debut on Monday November 7th! We can’t wait to share it with you all, so you can download it and start using the app to support your study and practice of A Course in Miracles.
When we posted our previous update, we’d just opened beta testing to a wider group. Thanks to the feedback received, Peter has been able to fix some formatting issues, address some bugs, and make further improvements. More recently, his focus has been on making the app infrastructure as light and efficient as possible. We want to ensure it takes up only a small amount of space when you download it to your device, that it delivers fast and efficient search results, and that it works just as well offline - so you really can study and practice anywhere!
Our designer, Will, has been working with us on the user interface (the bits you see) too, and his design updates will be implemented in the next few weeks. In the meantime, I’ve started work on the in-app user instructions - I’m not a technical person but Peter is a patient teacher, and he’s taught me all sorts of things about apps during this project.
This first version of the app will include many features to help you study and practice with the Complete and Annotated Edition of A Course in Miracles. (Further features are already being developed for version 2.)
Naturally, you can read A Course in Miracles from the app, but this is so much more than an reader, allowing you to:
(*Internet connection is required for syncing and sharing.)
We really can’t wait to share this first version of the app with you, and we are so grateful for your support and the donations that have made it possible. Stay tuned for further updates before the launch on November 7th, and if you feel guided to make a contribution towards ongoing development, and Version 2, please visit the donation page for information.
With love and thanks,
Circle of Atonement
It would be very convenient if we could copy/print from the CE app. Currently, if I want to quote a passage from the app, I have to go to the FIP app, find the same passage and copy/paste; or, dictate it.
Hi Al, it is possible to copy/quote with the app. It was important to us too. Thanks for your support.
While having the phone app will be great, I hope to see an app for Windows that I can run on my desktop.
We are working on it, Bob! 😁
Awesome! I hope that the App can also be downloaded in the Netherlands, guess the Playstore. Sometimes Apps worldwide cannot be downloaded in the Netherlands.
Patricia, we have great news for you! This first version of the app will bypass the Playstore entirely and you'll be able to download it from your browser, so there are no limitations on who can access or download it. 😀
