Godible app is a client project for Family Federation to redesign the web infrastructure and add new functionality to the service. Godible provides daily scripture readings in both podcast and reading form.


Web, iOS (coming soon), Android (coming soon)


Several improvements were required from a plain website previously hosted on Shopify.

  1. Create a native mobile app
  2. A premium Godible Pro tier.
  3. Scripture search by keyword and topic
  4. Allow login for user playlists and personal notes
  5. Add push notification capaibility
  6. Overhaul current text message and email notification infrastructure
  7. Improve backend efficiency of the content management (CMS)
  8. Visual redesign the experience


Our team successfully planned and implemented all features.

  1. We used Ionic to efficiently create a web and native app in a single codebase.
  2. We used Stripe to create a subscription pay as you like service
  3. We used Algolia indexing and a data model to create topic tags, books, and speeches.
  4. We created a secure and scalable account system using the MongoDB via Parse framework.
  5. We provided push notification systems for iOS and Android
  6. We upgraded Twilio and SendGrid systems, removing the need for Zapier for signfiicant cost savings.
  7. We created a powerful content management system using Coda with AI powered tagging and quote selectin, a table-based service, and provided training for the content team.
  8. We improved the UX by creating a visually appealing customer journey from first load to regular paying user.
