Under his leadership the company rolled out products such as the iPod, iPhone and iPad.

“It’s very sad at the relatively young age of 56 to have lost someone who did so much to help communications in the world, and yes I think he had a God given gift that he used to the best of his ability”, says Fr Michael McAndrew who is parish priest of St Mary’s church in Swindon, England and was a contributor to the award winning CliftonDiocese.com podcast.

He also told Lydia O’Kane the technology developed by Steve Jobs has become an important tool in spreading the church’s message.

"It has made it easier for us to communicate what we want to say… easier to communicate the Christian message because of the ease of use… because of the tools he has put at our disposal”.

Leading the tributes to Steve Jobs, US President Barack Obama said that the world had "lost a visionary" and in a statement Apple said, his "brilliance, passion and energy were the source of countless innovations that enrich and improve all of our lives.Listen to Lydia O'Kane's interview RealAudioMP3
