Faith-Based App Surpasses TikTok, Google, Netflix, and More

Hallow, a Catholic prayer and meditation app, recently surpassed TikTok, Google, Netflix, Spotify, and Instagram, landing itself in the No. 3 spot in the Apple App Store.

The app was founded in 2018 by Alex Jones, Alessandro DiSanto, and Erich Kerekes and has been downloaded millions of times and has reached some 150 countries. This week, Hallow kicked off a 40-day prayer challenge, through Easter Sunday, featuring prayers and meditations narrated by Mark Wahlberg, Jim Caveziel, Immaculée Ilibagiza, and Father Mike Schmitz.

Hallow’s success is due in part to its star-studded lineup. Jonathan Roumie, who portrays Jesus in the hit Bible series “The Chosen,” is one of the lead voices for Hallow’s Lent prayer challenge. During a recent interview on CBN’s “Quick Start,” Roumie credited God for providing him with “all these different opportunities,” including participating in the Hallow app.

“We’re all on this big rock together, so I think our responsibility is to each other,” he said. “To God first, and then to each other. So hopefully these things that I’m involved with will help expedite the intensity of people’s connectedness to their creator.”

Mark Wahlberg, who is also part of the prayer challenge, appeared on NBC’s “Today” this week to promote Hallow. He said his faith is “everything” to him and he wants to share his faith with others.

Wahlberg said, “I do not deny my faith. That’s an even bigger sin. You know, it’s not popular in my industry, but, you know, I cannot deny my faith. It’s important for me to share that with people.”

Hallow has been downloaded millions of times and has a growing user base. The app is designed to help users stay connected with their faith and offers guided prayers and meditations, as well as daily and weekly challenges. The app also allows users to track their progress and share their experiences with others.
