We have always been driven by a single mission: to create mobile applications that engage, educate, and inspire. Today, we’re excited to announce the latest innovation born from this mission: “Text With Jesus.”
“Text With Jesus” is a revolutionary new application that allows users to explore the biblical narratives like never before. Leveraging advanced AI technology, powered by the ChatGPT language model from OpenAI, the app offers an opportunity for users to engage in real-time text conversations with beloved figures from the Bible, including the Holy Family, Apostles, and various prophets from the Old Testament.
We envisioned an application that could offer an interactive and personal supplement to traditional Bible study methods, and we believe “Text With Jesus” does just that. With this app, users can ask questions, seek guidance, and engage in personal dialogues that deepen their understanding of their faith.
Beyond individual study, “Text With Jesus” can also serve as a valuable resource for small groups, Sunday School classes, and church sermons. It provides a unique platform to foster further discussion and reflection, making biblical study a more interactive and engaging process.
However, the appeal of “Text With Jesus” extends beyond just the Christian community. Given that the Bible is not only a religious text but also a cornerstone of Western literature and culture, anyone interested in literature, history, or philosophy may find “Text With Jesus” a fascinating tool to explore these age-old narratives in a fresh, modern way.
We are thrilled to make “Text With Jesus” available for download on the Apple iOS, iPadOS and macOS platforms. With a clean, user-friendly interface, the app is designed to offer a seamless and enjoyable user experience. The app is a free download, with an optional in-app subscription to unlock unlimited messages and all Biblical figures.
At Catloaf Software, we are proud to continually push the boundaries of what’s possible in educational technology. “Text With Jesus” represents our latest effort to transform everyday learning experiences into interactive journeys of discovery.
We encourage everyone, regardless of their faith or background, to give “Text With Jesus” a try and experience the Bible like never before. As always, we’re eager to hear your feedback, and we look forward to continuing to innovate and serve our user community.
Stay tuned for future updates and new features as we continue to enhance your “Text With Jesus” experience!
Following the Presidential Inauguration earlier this week, which among other things produced the very prolific Bernie Mittens meme, we have now updated our Texts From Bernie app and added a new iMessage sticker pack.
Featured prominently among those new stickers is the iconic image of Bernie sitting with his mittens, which you can now easily paste all over your text conversations.
Enjoy! This is a new feature of our FREE app!
In light of recent events unfolding in Washington, we have decided to permanently retire our Texts From Donald Trump app from the iOS App Store.
As of today, the app is no longer available for download. Support will no longer be provided for the app and it will not see any further updates.
If you previously downloaded the app, it will continue to work on your devices as before. It will not be available to install on any new devices.
We humbly encourage you to try out our Texts From Founding Fathers app instead, which provides much of the same features albeit without the baggage of quotes from a seditious ex-president.
We are proud to unveil the new web home for our Fretuoso® app, now live at fretuoso.app!
The new website is easier to navigate and more up to date with the latest Web technologies. A notable addition is the new documentation page, a new easy way to access reference material previously only available within the app. We will be updating it as we add new features, and it is now an easy way to explore the features of the app without having to install and launch it.
Also of note, our new changes page outlines the changes in the history of the app, outside of the App Store pages and blog posts.
Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and welcome to a new decade!
To celebrate the end of the 2010s and the beginning of the 2020s, and in the spirit of the holidays, we are again offering deep discounts on our Fretuoso®. Stuff the stocking of your iOS-enabled budding musician this holiday season! The reduced pricing is in effect starting on Christmas Day, December 25th, and will last till January 1st, 2020.
During this time, the following prices are reduced:
Please note that this promotion only applies to the main Fretuoso app. As previously mentioned on this blog, we are deprecating the various instrument editions and those will no longer be updated soon. Please switch over now to the main Fretuoso app if you are still using some of these other editions.
Happy Holidays to all!
Today, we are releasing version 6.5 of the Fretuoso app, with an important new feature: iCloud support.
This means that all of your app data, from your settings, custom tunings, and statistics to your instrument purchases are now safely stored in your connected iCloud account.
If your device is set up with an iCloud account (and it really should be!), your data is automatically imported and synced with the cloud. It will also automatically propagate to any other devices running Fretuoso you may have connected to the same account.
You will now be able to practice the fretboard on your iPhone and your iPad, and can pick up from one device to the other transparently.
This new support for iCloud also brings all of our various editions of the app together for the first time, as your iCloud data is also shared between them as well. So if you are using both our Banjo and Guitar editions, for example, your data will be preserved between these versions of the app.
As a consequence of this change, since your purchases are now automatically shared between all editions of Fretuoso, we are officially deprecating the various instrument editions, as well as the Complete Edition.
From now on, we will provide feature updates only through the main app (previously known as the “free” edition). In the coming months, these editions will stop receiving any updates besides iCloud support, and will eventually be removed from the App Store.
If you are using one of the paid editions of Fretuoso, or made purchases in any of them, just make sure to update it to at least version 6.5 and start it once while logged in with your iCloud account. Your purchases will be automatically unlocked in the main Fretuoso app as well, and you can switch to it immediately.
This consolidation is bringing more clarity to our app offering, and will simplify the life of both our users and ourselves as developers.
We have more important new features coming soon to Fretuoso, so please stay tuned!
Fretuoso 6.5 is available today and requires a device running iOS 10 or newer.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
