If you’ve ever wished you could carry around classic Christian hymns on your iPhone, you’re going to get really excited about this new iPhone app. It’s called I.Praise and it basically has catalogued all of the hymns in the Seventh-day Adventist church hymnal, which by the way, are almost all the same hymns that any other Methodist, Baptist, any many other church hymnals use. Just saying.
I’ve been playing around with it for a little bit, and there’s a few features that are pretty nice.
1. It’s easy to search hymns by category:
So if you’re looking for hymns that go with a communion service, for example, you can see them all listed.
2. You can also search through the text of hymns. So if you want to search through all the hymns that use the word “resurrection,” it will list them all for you. This is a good way to search if you can’t remember the title of the hymn.
3. In the app there’s also a dedicated button to go directly to a hymn number.
There’s also a category for praise and worship songs that includes chords, but this is very limited. It only has about 5-6 older praise and worship songs.
But, if your main goal is to have a digital hymnal that you can carry with you, this is the app for you.
