With the aim of spreading the teachings of our Lord, Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba to all corners of the world, SSSSTPD has undertaken the development of software applications, which take advantage of the proliferation of mobile computing devices across the world. The mobile device overcomes barriers of time, geography, and space, allowing people from all walks of life to access Sai literature and services.
Presently, we are developing applications for the Android operating system, which can be emulated on Windows PCs and accessed by Blackberry users via our distributing partner Good e-Reader. These Android applications are distributed primarily via Google Play Store. While some Android applications are free to download and use, without advertisements - pop-ups and otherwise, other apps can be purchased at a nominal price.
Today, we offer the following applications at the lotus feet of our beloved Swami and pray that the world will draw much benefit from these, with His blessings and grace:
An online literature and media products' catalogue, ProductStand allows users to browse through SSSSTPD's offerings at the divine lotus feet of God and purchase them from our online retail partners. This application also allows users to read specific titles allotted by SSSSTPD for the purpose, for free, in their entirety. Six books will be offered every year through ProductStand, for users to read and imbibe divine wisdom, at a rate of one book every two months. ProductStand is also a portable reservoir of the Lord's bhajans, with a complete audio track offered per audio product. Swami's darshan videos can also be accessed via video promotions and Sai Love videos, our partner service group that has done commendable service to the Lord. This application is free to download and install.
t.p.r (The Prasanthi Reporter)
With the grace and blessings of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba, The Prasanthi Reporter, SSSSTPD's news reporting service, is now available on mobile devices. Bringing news from Prasanthi Nilayam, reports about functions, programmes, and festivals, t.p.r is one of the best mediums to keep up with current events at the abode of supreme peace. The app, with its image gallery feature, is also a premium repertoire of photos, bringing you closer to blissful Prasanthi, no matter how far you may be. You may also tag news reports as 'favourite', allowing you preserve them for future reading and reference.
Book 1, 2, and 3
Containing didactic stories for children, with education in human values and morals as its purpose, Chinna Katha tales are derived from the teachings of our beloved Swami, while several of them have been narrated and authored by Bhagawan Himself. With the e-comics being distributed via Amazon for the Kindle, this set of three apps brings the same facility to Android devices. Over the course of time, Android-specific features will be added to these apps to enhance their value across Android platforms.
