As of 2015, reports show over 1.5 million apps are available for download from both Google and Apple. That, my brothers, is a lot of apps!
Over the last month, I started making my way through those apps (on the Apple Store) in an effort to find the very best apps available to men, more specifically Christian men.
I want to be honest with you, I reviewed nearly 20 different apps, but found that most hadn't been updated in months or you had to spend too much money in order to access the content.
With that in mind, ALL of the apps listed below appear to be updated often and are FREE!
Listen, guys, if you're too busy or if you feel like you simply don't have the time to maintain your walk with Christ, then I highly suggest you review the app options listed below, pick at least two and start engaging with them on a daily basis.
My goal with this post is not only to expose the best apps available to Christian men, but also to feature the best part of each app. I'd encourage you to go through each one and choose which one you think will suit you best, based on what sets it apart from the crowd.
I'll let the apps speak for themselves now, and pray that your walk with Christ and the relationships around you are re-established or transformed by at least one of the powerful apps listed below.
Here are the five best apps available for Christian men:
1. Man Up God's Way
Unique feature: The interaction
The possibilities to meet and interact with other men on this app are endless. After sign-up, you'll find the Home Screen & Navigation Screen friendly and easy to use. From there you can dig into the latest challenge, read the latest resources or post a hurdle. The "Hurdles" section is a powerful place where you can share your heart anonymously and get replies from real brothers supporting you and sharing their advice. Man Up and download it today! (Download Options Here)
2. Giant Slayers
Unique feature: Daily notifications
This app is unparalleled if you are looking for daily notifications on Scripture and hard questions every man needs to answer. These notifications are picked and built just for you after you sign-up and take a short assessment based on your current spiritual walk. From there, you can set up "My Tracks." My Tracks offers you multiple choices from daily or weekly notification plans, and also offers you timed plans (7-14 days) for specific topics such as pornography and human trafficking. You pick the Track and you pick the notification times. Become a fellow Giant Slayer today! (Get more info here, visit your App store to download)
3. Uncommon Men
Unique feature: The challenges
Once you sign up for the Uncommon Men app, you'll be immediately faced with a handful of challenge options. From being a better father or role model, to offering fun ways to improve your marriage. The "U Can Lead" challenge was my personal favorite because it impacts every man who joins the app. This challenge hit me with hard questions such as who I could count on during an emergency and how to spend some real time thinking about my purpose in life. Jump on this app today and pick the challenge that best suits your needs now! Finish it like a man and move onto the next one! (Download Here)
4. Live Bold
Unique feature: The resources
Get ready to set up camp, guys! Once you sign up for free, you'll find the app easy to search and loaded with tons of great resources. Click on the "Campfire" tab and you'll find the latest video and article specifically relevant to men. If you're not sure what a Christian man is, then scroll down the menu where you'll find resources specifically built to answer your questions about the Christian life. And one of the best parts of the app is the Daily Kickstart. This is a great way to start your day off with a quick word of encouragement and Scripture. Grab some kindling and set up camp today!

5. He Reads Truth
Unique feature: The reading plans
If you have some extra time before work or are looking to grow a deeper relationship with Christ, then this is the devotional app you've been looking for. From the menu, you'll find full access to the Bible and great-looking Lock Screen images which are perfect for your phone. But the real power of this app is the reading plans. Once you choose your plan, you'll engage in a great journey. Each plan offers a tab for relevant Scriptures, then you'll be challenged with devotional questions, and at the end you'll have a chance to share your personal thoughts about the devotional of the day. Download this app and experience real growth in your faith! (Get more info here, visit your App Store to download)
Guys, I strongly encourage you to check out these apps this week and download a few of them. These all contain powerful content that can help you get back or stay on track in your daily walk in life and in your faith.
No more excuses!
