At the beginning of November, we released the first major update to our app since its release two years ago. For the first time, the app itself will help you to stay accountable to the daily disciplines of spiritual exercises.
The function of the new home screen is to assist you in faithfully practicing the disciplines of Exodus 90.
At the heart of the redesign of the home screen is the new "Core Four" of Reading, Check your Anchor, Prayer, and Nightly Examen. Surfacing these four disciplines on the home screen helps keep first things first by prioritizing the most fundamental disciplines each day.
Each of these sections can be completed for the day by clicking into it and selecting "complete." Once you have completed an activity, the text of the card will turn orange and show when it was completed (as seen above).
Daily Progress Graph
Throughout the day, you will be completing different disciplines in order to stay faithful to the exercise you are in (e.g. Exodus 90). As you check these off in the app, your progress will be reflected front and center on the home screen.
Use this graph for motivation to contact your anchor during breakfast, refrain from wine at dinner, and remember to pray your Examen before retiring for the night!
By selecting Disciplines at the top of your screen, you will be toggled over to the list of disciplines associated with your current exercise:
You are able to check off each item by selecting it. Or, if you are at the end of the day and were able to keep all of the disciplines, you are able to select the toggle at the top right to check them all off.
Checking off these disciplines (and the Core Four) is what moves the graph on the home screen.
If you are experiencing any issues, or you have questions or suggestions for our team, please reach out to us by emailing [email protected] or chatting with us (bottom right of your screen). We hope you find that the new app helps you seek Christ!
