Attention all broadcasters!
Here at SermonAudio, our passion is to help get great teaching and preaching material to a wider listening audience. And so we're always exploring new and innovative ways to deliver sermons to where people are today -- effectively and economically. Whether it be PCs, Macs, mobile phones, MP3 players, Kindles, or TVs. We've got you covered.
|Native iPad Support in Version 2.0|
Our newest version of the Church App is now a universal app so that the iPad is now natively supported along with many more improvements!
- iPad: Play audio, video, or live webcasts WHILE you continue using the app!
- iPad: shows currently-playing sermons to see what others are listening to.
- iPad: Enjoy full-screen videos that take advantage of the large screen!
- iPad: New retina graphics support + intelligent connectivity support.
And of course, hand-in-hand with that mission is our desire to help and service the local church. Whatever we can do to give people a springboard opportunity to share their faith and their local church with friends and co-workers, well, we think it's a good idea.
With that in mind, we're excited to announce our newest service exclusively to broadcasters on SermonAudio -- the iPhone+iPad Church App! A fully-functional, and completely affordable native iPhone+iPad app that's budgeted for churches of any size. 100% compatible with the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad.
What is it exactly? The iPhone+iPad Church App makes it easy and economical for your church to have its own professional iPhone+iPad app. Your own icon, your own name, your own listing in the App Store, your own sermons, photos, blog, and more!
How easy is it to setup? Real easy. In fact, you don't need to do a thing! We take care of designing your icon, your splash screen, compiling the code, and of course submitting it to the App Store. The entire turnaround time can take up to 10 days.
Comprehensive access to sermons. The iPhone+iPad Church App gives users a lot more ways to browse and find sermons from your entire church library -- not just the newest material. Browse or search through audio, video, transcripts by date, by series, by Bible, or user comments. And of course search by any keyword.
Photos, Blog, Map, Twitter, and more. The iPhone+iPad Church App provides much more than just sermons. A built-in interactive map shows the exact location of your church. Visitors can view your recent photos to learn more about your church's ministries. And they can read your newest blog entries and even post comments!
