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!

  • New! Native Support for both iOS + Android platforms!

It's not many times I come across posts that really stir in my heart that cause a chain reaction, but I felt compelled to write.

Technology isn't the issue.... the people are..... Money isn't the problem, but the love of money is... The point is simple.... It's simply a tool or resource... we determine the use whether good or bad.

To go as far to be combative over old school and new school is completely irrelevant. There are pro's and con's to both. I would say take the good from both and marry them together.

Our God is the most creative in all the universe... He gave man the wisdom for our technology. We preach from both the OT & NT.... there is a reason for that. We need both. We can't swing from one extreme to the next, but in many cases we do.

Our culture is ever changing and growing as we should be in Christ. Instead of fighting the change, we should harness it and lead by example. A mobile app could be like one more bobber in the water. You never know who it can impact or reach on a global scale. As a marketer adaptability is key with growth. I would see a lot of value with having a mobile app.

In the end we can't control how the tool or resource will be used, but if it can be used to connect 1 person to who our Lord and Savior is,then I believe it was wor

This is a great option for all broadcasters. I highly encourage all broadcasters to take advantage of this great opportunity. Over the last six months just about 1/4 of our listeners used sermonaudio.com on their mobile phones. I listen to sermonaudio myself from my iPad. Times are changing and more and more people seek spiritual resources online. This is great and sermonaudio is there to help meet this need.

Randolph, how about we tone things down a bit and just focus on your original observation: "It would be better if people had Bibles and paid attention in church rather than playing with their electronic pacifiers."

OK, let's all grant that yes, it's unfortunate that people may use/abuse their mobile devices during services.

But what has that to do with this blog post, about SermonAudio offering an iphone app feature for churches? (To be clear, there is already an iphone app that can be used for the SA site in general.)

Are you asserting that there's something wrong with SA in general? With this iphone app? With use of technology?

You've posited the problem as being specific to "in church". Fair enough, but I think others here are defending the value of the app elsewhere. Would you disagree with that (using it elsewhere)? or even using it responsibly in church (a slippery slope, I grant)?

I'm not picking a fight, really. Just trying to help advance the conversation, especially for those who may come to it some months after it happened, as I have.

Yes you do mean to be sarcastic, and overreactionary. I don't mind you or anyone else using technology judiciously. But your post reveals several things. First you are Very defensive toward someone who has pointed out the abuse of this technology. This makes me think you may be among the 80% of people who are addicted to texting, or who use the tecnology inappropriatly. Secondly, you have put words in my mouth by portaying me as wanting to go back to smoke signals. Thirdly, you have totaly missed my point about how church services are interupted and the Holy Spirit quenched by people texting and surfing the net during the ministry of the Word. Not only in church, but when you can't even have a conversation with someone without them ignoring you to text someone, or they can't do their job due to texting, something is wrong.
As to the idea that God's work cannot move forward without technology....Don't you believe in the suffeciency of scripture?
So how about not jumping to conclusions when someone twice your senior recognizes the danger of fads.

I use my phone to keep in touch with my congregation whether in voice calls, text, or facebook. I use the apps to listen to sermons from other pastors. I also....get this...use the bible apps to read THE BIBLE.
Or maybe I should really go old school and only read scrolls!? I mean Jesus didn't have books.
I think you get my point. This is a new media. And like all media (including scrolls and books) it can be used for good or ill. We should be making the best use of it for the LORD.
What, no scroll app?

Seriously, Amen to your post.

How about pastors sharing what text they intend to preach on for the coming Sunday, via email or webpage? That way, folks could study it beforehand & be ready with any questions.

Assuming, of course, that pastors actually entertain such questions. Responsibly conducted (on all sides), this could be very edifying, if my limited experience is any indication. And that is the way Jesus & the early church taught anyway.

I concur! This is a great idea and more of us have Androids than iPhones in our church. Both would be great!
