SERMONAUDIO TIP
Affordable Church App for iPhone + iPad + Android!

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, tablets, Kindles, or TVs. We've got you covered.

With that in mind, we're excited to announce our newest service exclusively to broadcasters on SermonAudio -- the Church App for either iOS or Android! A fully-functional, and completely affordable native app that's budgeted for ministries of any size. Now available for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, and Android phones + tablets.

New! Native iOS8 Support! For version 3.1, all church apps have been refreshed to be compatible with iOS8 and the larger screen sizes of the iPhone 6/6 Plus. The sermon playback speed is now adjustable. In-app background playback is now supported. Downloading videos, Chromecast support, search auto-complete, and more!

New! Android Church Apps! Version 1.5 introduces support for Google Chromecast, a more robust audio player, audio player controls in the player notification, podcast links which can be opened in your favorite Android podcasting app, and numerous fixes to improve stability.

Android Church Apps! We now support Church Apps for the Android platform in both phone + tablet form factors! Please note that the Android version is a separate option from the current iOS Church App. Refer to the Members Only Area for more information on activating either the iOS or Android options.

All screenshots below are taken from the iOS Church App. The Android Church App will have very similar screens and functions.

What is it exactly? The Church App makes it easy and economical for your church to have its own custom iPhone or Android 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 simply need to turn the option ON and we take care of the rest, from assembling the graphics, compiling the code, and of course submitting it to the App Store. Entire turnaround time: 7 to 14 days!

Access to all your sermons, not just newest. If you broadcast with us, it makes sense to let us create your Church App. All of your sermons are here already. The Church App gives mobile users access to all of them! Browse or search through audio, video, transcripts by date, by series, by Bible, keyword, or user comments. Search with auto-complete to quickly find speakers or sermon series.

Download Sermons! You can easily download multiple sermons directly to your mobile device for offline listening! It's perfect for when you need to "load up" on sermons at a coffee shop while on the road. MP3, MP4, and PDF downloads are supported with grouping. iOS and Android includes differing abilities to export to other apps.

Photos, Blog, Map, Twitter, and more. The Church App provides much more than just sermons. An interactive map shows the exact location of your church. Visitors can swipe, pinch, and zoom their way through your photo albums. And they can read your newest blog entries and even post comments! Twitter, eDocs, and more...

Special Events Integration! The Church App also supports integration with the upcoming special events found on your SermonAudio account. Use the "Add to Calendar" button to conveniently add the event to your phone's Calendar App!

New! Online Donation Integration! The Church App also supports online donations in a beautiful, mobile-friendly interface. Activate donations on your SermonAudio account, and it's automatically activated on your Church App!

Summary of features include:

  • New! Native Support for both iOS + Android platforms!
  • New! Looks great in both phone + tablet form factors!

Not sure about the app as that is too techy for me, but...

An interesting sermon re: conferences and what they are charging to hear the 'rock star' preachers of modern calvinism (the big names), but why isn't it free to hear the preaching of God's word.

Can the app inform constituents about event cancellations, postponements, church news updates, too? Do you have a video clip demonstrating the usefulness of custom made SermonAudio.com apps?

Thank you!

Sermon Audio,

Are you planning on adding post histories to the Android app? It would be really great if you did!

We don't mind feedback. Really, it's quite alright. If you email us sermons that have been a blessing to you and recommend it to us for a staff pick, we'll do our best to listen to them and make the final call. Thank you!

Thanks,
A "church app" is not absolutely necessary because your church's sermons and presence are available on the main SermonAudio.com app.

However, the church app does give you a number of additional features such as photo albums, twitter feed, blog posts, and it presents many more additional ways to browse your sermons (ie: by date, by speaker, series, Bible reference, etc). Not to mention that folks can search the App Store for your church name.

The And Bible app is really what makes a tablet worth the money, as far as I'm concerned. I was happy to be of help. All it has even more of description on the, http://www.crosswire.org site and it can use a lot of the modules from them since it was designed to do that.

It really works well and I do mean well for a Android program. So, anyone else out there give it a try -- it's free.

Thanks again Jim!

P.S.
I was having trouble linking to websites from Sermon Audio earlier today. And then I finally remembered how I learned how to do it last year. It was by clicking on reply to comment in regard to your comments and studying the code you were using. See how an absence of approximately 11 months dulls the memory.

So thanks for the refresher course today and thanks also for last year!

One more that you might find handy, Dopey.

And Bible. If you want probably the best free, and since there aren't that many Bible apps out their for Android perhaps the best one, period, this one is it I was having trouble with some sites but as usual I wasn't having trouble with the programs from freewarelovers. Though they often just give a description of an earlier version, but often have the latest version on it, so check it out. You also can get it from the Amazon store besides and no doubt be guaranteed to have the latest one. Yes for many out their that are tied to 1769 version of the KJV it has that one of course and you can have it interact with Strong's concordance, remember to download his Greek/English and Hebrew/English dictionaries. What is also is nice this app will run from your SD card.

Jim,

Thank you very much for your post! In my travels around Sermon Audio I completely missed what you linked to. And your link has opened up a brand new vista to me. So, thanks again!
