Glo Bible adds Atlas Lens for iOS users


ORLANDO — Glo Bible for iOS, the operating system for Apple devices, has been updated to include an Atlas lens, so the user can explore a zoomable map with locations linked to scripture and media.

The Atlas lens, which is already included in the desktop versions, is helpful for locating and exploring locations in Scripture. And Glo's stunning interface makes exploring the Bible lands interesting and enjoyable.

According to Immersion Digital, the user can tap on locations revealing photos, 360-degree virtual tours, artwork and scripture related to the location chosen. 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.

This new update is free for all iOS Glo users, including Glo Lite and Glo Premium users.

The Glo Bibles, a media-rich interactive Bible, was the winner of the 2010 Bible of the Year.

"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 updated 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.
