"I think that there should be an app so that when you don't have anyone you can talk to, you can write a note to God."
This idea was submitted by Allen Wright, a high school student from Sacramento, California.
Note to God allows the user to enter a personal note to god. The app is non-denominational and meant to allow anyone with any belief to communicate with their own higher power.
In many religions, the act of writing a letter to god is seen as a holy commitment and a legitimate way of communicating one's spiritual emotions. The Note To God app is simply a digital expression of those same honest feelings. After the note is sent, it disappears. A user can not recall past notes. This way, the writing of the note can be completely honest and the hitting of send is a true commitment to what's in the note.
Every note that is entered is stored anonymously within the database. Users can read through the notes of others to see what people are praying about. Topics can be searched, notes can be seen at random, or viewers can look at the "Notes In The Cloud" a custom designed interface that shows the most common words that are being prayed about. The larger the word, the more often it appears. Tap on a word to read notes and prayers that include that word.
We hope that Allen's app will help people form a stronger relationship with their own spirituality. We also hope that this app will serve to remind us all that we have more in common than we often realize.
We are proud to call Note To God a Shiny MEDL Object. If you have an idea for an app that you'd like to see on the app store some day, click here.
About the Inventor, Allen Wright
Allen initially didn't believe that we were real when we first notified him that his app had been selected. It took several emails and finally a phone call to convince him that Note To God was being built as an iPhone app. And we couldn't be happier that he finally answered our call.
Allen is a genuine person with a heart of gold and a brilliant idea. He hopes that his app will help people to connect with God in their own way.
