Client

Immersion Digital is a technological and media company founded in 2008. Its flagship product, Glo, is an interactive Bible featuring HD videos, images, animations, maps, reading plans, 360-degree virtual tours and more (www.globible.com).

Challenge

Armed with the necessary creative concepts and vast archives of information and photos, Immersion Digital sought out a strategic relationship with a software development firm that could turn their award-winning PC product into the multi-platform, global product they envisioned. Our engineers’ strong technical expertise and solid reputation played a vital role in Immersion Digital’s selection of Intego Group as a strategic technological partner for developing Glo Bible on the Mac, iPhone and iPad platforms. The most challenging part of the project was the integration of a variety of high-quality multimedia content, such as more than 500 full 360-degree panoramas, 7500 encyclopedia articles, 2400 photos, 700 pieces of artwork, and 3.5 hours of high definition video. In total, the product comprises over 3,800 media elements related to the Bible.

Solution

Our company assembled a dedicated team of highly skilled software engineers in Ukraine who worked daily with the Immersion Digital team to architect the application concepts and materials into an award-winning, immersive product. This "Bible for the digital world" features Bible text in multiple translations, linked to more than 3800 media elements related to the Bible. Our engineers successfully transferred the concept of the PC version of Glo Bible into a highly marketable product on the Mac, iPad and iPhone, with support for multi-device, cloud-based content synchronizations. As a result of our continuous engagement with Immersion Digital over several years, our engineers have delivered a variety of product versions for different platforms, including:

Benefits

Today, Glo is the award winning multi-platform product. USA Today called Glo Bible "the coolest app for the Fall" in 2011. The Washington Times selected Glo as "Software of the Year" and AppAdvice.com said, "The most extraordinary iPad book app of the past year isn't The Civil War Today, Ultimate Sharks or even The Monster at the End of The Book. No, while each of these titles are great, nothing compares to the Bible+ app released earlier this year by Immersion Digital."
