In his blog McKendrick said the idea for the Bible app came from market research. He wanted to find a niche that could be profitable and was “not swamped by competition.” He found this in the Bible app market.

“It turns out that most of the Spanish Bible apps out there are really bad,” McKendrick wrote in his blog. He said some Bible apps are good but are too generalized and isolate their Spanish-speaking audience.

“My hypothesis was three fold: (1) Whoever was making Spanish Bibles right now was making decent money, (2) I could make a better Spanish Bible app relatively cheaply, and (3) the competition wasn’t too heavy so I’d still be able to be found,” he wrote.

Too bad he couldn't figure out a way to make money doing something he believes in.
