SERMONAUDIO TIP
SermonAudio App v2.5.9 for Android Mobile Devices

Attention all users!

We're very happy to announce our support for the Google Android family of phones so that now you can listen to sermons, watch videos, and access other resources on SermonAudio.com -- instantly! It's the SermonAudio Android Edition!

It's our wildly popular app for Android devices and here's how it works. Simply go to the Google Play Store on your device and search for "sermons" or "sermonaudio" and download it for free! Or you can simply click on this link!

New! Version Updates! Version 2.5.6 introduces audio controls on the lock screen (for devices which support this Android feature), a map of your local churches at a glance at startup, an important fix for audio focus, and many small stability enhancements. Version 2.5.7 fixes a problem with audio playback during incoming calls. Version 2.5.8 has several stability fixes.

User Feedback: A *great* blessing! First, the app *works*. That is, this is not merely some great idea made a chore or worse with buggy software. Second, this *is* a great idea, and has been for years.

User Feedback: If it were possible to give this app SIX stars I would do it!
User Feedback: Solid Huge improvement this is a rock solid app.

New! Update Version 2.5! We've jumped to our 2.5 update which cumulatively includes support for sermon sharing via QR codes, export downloads to public storage and Android media player, improved searching with suggestions, grouping downloads by speaker, a better download notification, and several fixes and stability improvements.

New! Update Version 2.1! We've released our 2.1 update which includes auto-retry of playback after network interruption, improved download notification with true progress bar, and numerous fixes for stability. Nook and Kindle tablet users also enjoy the 2.1 update which now includes support for maps!

New! Major Release Version 2.0! Our version 2.0 is a major release that now supports both phone and tablet form factors (landscape + portrait modes). Audio, video, and PDF sermons can now be downloaded to the app for offline enjoyment. The app has been redesigned with native controls and largely rewritten for more robust support of the newer Android devices. Other improvements include: Player auto-resume, click title to jump to sermon, speaker + album graphics.

Version 2.0 is only available for Android OS 4+ but older OS versions can still access our 1.9.8 version in the Store under the title of SermonAudio Legacy Edition.

Portrait and Landscape Modes

We've worked hard on the user interface making this a visually appealing app for both landscape and portrait orientations.

  • Landscape: Player reformats to include speaker thumbnail.
  • Landscape: On tablets, shows your currently-playing sermon.
  • Landscape: On tablets, shows what others are currently playing.
  • Tablets: Enjoy the map, videos, and sermon transcripts on larger screen.

New! QR Scanner and Generator! We've come up with a clever way to easily jump to any sermon using QR codes! With v2.5, you can now scan the QR code for any sermon on SermonAudio and the app will conveniently jump to that specific sermon! It's an amazingly simple concept implemented beautifully! Scan QR codes from the website on your screen or from another mobile device!

New! Improved Player with Auto-Resume! The sermon player shows the title, speaker, broadcaster, and album art. It intelligently reformats itself based on screen orientation and tapping on the sermon title takes you to the sermon page. It also remembers your last play position and auto-resumes!

Background Playback Support! Sermons will continue to play even when exiting the app or performing other tasks. Simply click on the HOME or BACK button to switch to another task. To completely stop and unload the player, hit PAUSE first, then BACK.

Multi-Bitrate Video Streaming! You can now stream the newest videos over any connection, including 3G, EDGE, or WIFI. Videos uploaded at the higher bitrate on SermonAudio automatically have a lower-bitrate option available!

Live Video Webcast Support! You can now watch live video webcasts from supported SermonAudio broadcasters on your Android phone! Our infrastructure allows broadcasters to make available multiple bitrates for high or low speed connections!

Play-To Roku TV Integration! If you own a Roku Device, from your Android phone, click on the "Play-To Roku" button any sermon or live webcast and it will wirelessly send the command to your Roku to start playing on the big screen!

Local Church Finder via the MAPS tab. The app will automatically use the built-in GPS to locate your position and show the churches nearest to you! Alternatively, you can search by ZIP code or partial city name.

Download MP3+MP4+PDF Sermons! You can now easily download multiple MP3 audios AND MP4 videos directly to your phone or tablet for offline enjoyment! It's perfect for "loading up" on sermons at a coffee shop via WIFI before getting back on the road.

SermonAudio Android Edition allows you to elegantly browse and search through our library of over 863,000+ FREE MP3 sermons from thousands of different speakers and listen to any of them immediately on your Android phone!

Thank you for writing. Actually, the app should work quite well with Nexus 7. This was in fact the device we used for internal testing! And even if you did have a much older Android device, we have our "Legacy Edition" in the Google App Store to cover that base as well! Thank you!

Apparently tablets (I don't have a smart phone will have to have Ice Cream Sandwich, Jelly Bean, or KitKat versions of Android to work with.

Interesting features and I have a couple of tablets it should work with (a whole lot cheaper than smart phones!)

Not only has SA been working on this, I do have to say, I like what they have been doing for Windows ( ) desktops and laptop browsers, making the website more Mozilla friendly -- but not only that, they have also made the site more friendly to Android browsers like Opera Good show SA.

Thanks for the reply. Its not just when I comment, it freezes just trying to read articles, and browsing sermons. I did download from Google play, and I never had this issue until I updated. I dont know if its the ap, or my phone. I am inclined to think its the ap, because all my other aps work fine. I reinstalled the older SA ap, and have no issues.
Thanks for your time.
Hey Gs, I feel your pain, this app doesn't work on my iphone either

I just upgraded to the new Kindle Fire HDX and now my SermonAudio no longer appears. I checked it in Amazon's app store and saw the indication that it is not available for the 8.9 inch Kindle Fire HDX.

I very much miss the opportunity to play your excellent sermons on my new Kindle. Are you aware of what the conflict is. I know this new tablet uses Android Jelly bean 4.x which is highly customized by Amazon.
I would appreciate any assistance with this

Why does the app require permission to enable app debugging? "Allows the app to turn on debugging for another app. Malicious apps may use this to kill other apps." Is this just a bug?
