Imagine you are at a public place you visit often. Maybe a coffee shop, book store, bus station, or even a restaurant. How many times do you see people carrying or using their mobile devices?

In the beginning of 2016, OCN released the Orthodox Prayerbook and Spark apps for iOS devices. Since their release, they have been downloaded 12,000 ties. That equals 50 downloads per day. These apps are connecting thousands of people to their faith in a modern and meaningful way. App user Konlelos, shared: "Finally, an app that brings me news from all over the Orthodox world. I check it daily now. Not only are daily devotionals and Bible studies provided by priests, but there is news about suffering Christians. The app makes it easy to share articles and send prayer requests for those who are persecuted. I've recommended it to several friends."

Unfortunately, our current suite of apps is only available to iOS users which make up just 13.9% of smart phone users. Follower Vasile commented about this gap: "This is great! Hats off to all of you! Unfortunately, I as well as the many other Android users will not be able to utilize this incredible tool. Please build an android app (as well) soon."

He is not alone. 82% of smart phone users are Android users. That is 2,152,800,000 people worldwide that cannot access our apps. We need your help to reach Vasile and millions of others around the world. We need to raise $25,000 to do this.

Donate today. With your help we can make this happen. With your help we can create a new suite of Android apps. Let's make Orthodoxy GoMobile! After donating, please share that you donated on social media with the hashtag #GoMobile and inspire others to support OCN, too!
