Featured by Apple in the "Holiday Cheer" section for two years in a row! As others have discovered, you can use this app year-round, not just during Kwanzaa. Thanks for all the great reviews! Every great review makes our day!
*** APP DESCRIPTION ***
Need some help with thinking positive? This is the iPhone app companion to Venus Jones's "Kwanzaa: 7 Days, 7 Principles" album.
Celebrate the principles of Kwanzaa poetically through daily affirmations. These affirmations can be recited year-round to improve your spirit, and align yourself with the seven daily principles of Kwanzaa:
* Umoja (Unity)
* Kujichagulia (Self-Determination)
* Ujimaa (Collective Work and Responsibility)
* Ujamaa (Cooperative Economics)
* Nia (Purpose)
* Kuumba (Creativity)
* Imani (Faith)
No matter your cultural background, this app will prove to be a tool for self-improvement and the emotional stimulus we all need.
Note that this app doesn't include the audio clips from the CD (you have to buy the CD for that!), but it does include Venus's poetic affirmations for each day.
Try it today. It's free!
What's New in Version 2.0
Lots of cool updates in this version, including:
* audio pronunciation of the Swahili names
* kinara (Kwanzaa candle) lighting guide
* ability to forward an affirmation via email
* calendar dates for each day (not just the day number)
* whole new color scheme
What a great and needed app!!
For some of us far from family and others who would observe Kwanzaa this app is a great way to connect in. I especially appreciated the ability to email the affirmations to my far flung family. I could easily see there being a charge for this app but am wowed that it is free!
Great job Venus Jones!! Great job Stephen Jones!

This Kwanzaa app is an excellent way to increase awareness about the seven principles and have the information to share at your fingertips. I especially appreciate the latest improvements that include pronunciations, additional lingo, and sharing options. The cooperative approach to increasing capabilities is also very nice.

My mother in law encourages us each year to incorporate Kwanzaa as a way to create a new tradition to our children. This year we want to "give her flowers while she is living". This app is simple and easy to use and I especially appreciate you doing a wonderful job in providing this for the world. Peace and blessings!
