SERMONAUDIO TIP
Affordable iPhone + iPad Church App v3.0 Available Now

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.

New! Native iOS7 Support! For version 3.0, all church apps have been refreshed to be compatible with iOS7. The sermon playback speed is now adjustable. In-app background playback is now supported. Downloading videos, and more! A good thing just got better!

Native iPad Support

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!

New! Special Events Integration! The Church App now 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!

Summary of features include:

  • New! Native iOS7 Suport for iPhone + iPad + iPod Touch!
  • New! Audio player shows sermon info + art, and adjustable playback speed.
  • Remembers the last play position for every sermon and auto-resumes.

Multi-Bitrate Video & Live Webcast! Stream videos or live webcasts over any connection, including 3G, EDGE, or WIFI. Videos uploaded at the higher bitrate on SermonAudio automatically make a lower-bitrate option available for slower connections.

Download Sermons! You can easily download multiple MP3 audio sermons directly to your iPhone or iPod Touch for offline listening! It's perfect for iPod Touch users in particular if you wish to "load up" on sermons at a coffee shop while on the road.

New! Podcasting Support! Did you know that there is a dedicated Podcast App available for iOS users? Easily subscribe to your church's podcast feed by using the "Subscribe to Podcast" button found directly on your app's homepage.

$199 one-time setup +$10 per month. This is simply the most simple and affordable way for any ministry to get their own native iPhone+iPad app. Research for yourself and compare our costs with other services!

Try it for yourself! Still not convinced? Try a sample church app for yourself and see how it all works! Simply go to the App Store on your device and search for "Faith Free Presbyterian" and download it for free! Or you can simply click on this link!

For more information about requesting activation of this option, please log into the Members Area and take a look in the "Personal Info" section.

Enjoy!

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!

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!

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.
