I love finding ways to feel God in my day, whether I’m going to work or cooking dinner. I make sure I’m connected to Him by listening to Bible stories, sermons, praying, and singing praise songs. All the apps I test are introduced into my everyday life so that I can feel their usability on a daily basis.

Christians who prefer to experience Biblical devotion can use Abide to sleep better and stress less. This app provides some neat content to fuel your mind for the day ahead. It’s a great option for people who have free time during the day to find the peace of Christ through guided prayers.

This app sends you daily reminders so you don’t forget to pray, and also provides a journal to write about how you’re feeling and how God has been working in your life. If you like to connect with the Lord through inspiring audio content, then Abide can be one of the best options for you.

Pros & Cons

“This app tries to sit on the two chairs: it involves meditation and mindfulness, while, on the other hand, it helps you to pray. It focuses on many challenging topics (such as forgiveness, overcoming anxiety) but puts a timer restriction to it. I believe time spent with God cannot be limited by minutes or timers. You should be free to express your faith or deepen it without constraints”

Navigation

Abide has a simple but useful navigation. You can discover the variety of content by navigating the bottom menu and then scrolling down the feed. It’s a user-friendly app that easily puts users in touch with God’s words and other users, creating a strong community united in faith.

If you want to listen to specific topics, you can choose from the options at the top of the app. You’ll find content for anxiety, healing, anger, thankfulness, depression, forgiveness, and much more.

App Content

Abide has a wide range of audio content focused mainly on devotion. You can choose between daily meditations, bedtime stories, or find a topic of your interest to listen to. The platform also offers entertaining stories to children, and a strong community to pray together, help others in their faith, and express how you’re feeling or how grateful you are.

Users receive notifications reminding them to pray, however, for this app, it’s mostly recommended to find a calm place to meditate and reconnect with God, especially because most of its content focuses on devotion.

Cost

The biggest drawback of Abide is the content limitation for users. Even though the platform offers wide content options, free users have very limited access, not being able to choose the meditation they want and limited to just 2 minutes of prayer and other audio content.

To gain access to the full content library and experience, users must pay $39.99 per year for a subscription that can be automatically renewed. The impression is that the app is more focused on monetizing than bringing people closer to our Savior.
