The first Unitarian Universalist Association mobile app is now available. Called Illuminations, the app is free from the iTunes App Store online.
Currently the app is only available for iPhones, iPads, and the iPod Touch, but a version of the app for Android phones is expected to be available by June 20. The app provides more than 350 daily inspirational quotes, which can also be used to open and close meetings and for worship readings. The app also lists and describes the Seven Principles of Unitarian Universalism and it has five different chalices which can be “lit” and then extinguished by blowing on the phone.
Larry Stritof, Information Technology Systems analyst for the UUA and one of the developers of the app, said Illuminations works offline and does not require an internet connection unless the sharing feature is used.
He said more functions will likely be developed for it. More information can be found on the Illuminations Facebook page. Email app.support at uua.org with questions.
“I’m hoping to see folks use the app at GA,” said Stritof, “including holding up the lit chalices during witness events.”
