Do you know that building an app for your congregation can save you a lot of time and money? Printing and distributing bulletins, programs, and other material can be time consuming and expensive. With an app, you just need to tell your congregants to download your app and that’s it. They can also tell their friends and family to do the same. It spreads like wildfire.
What can you do with your app?
Create announcements as popups or newsflashes, and provide weekly or daily worship material with ease. Use the Youtube activity to provide members with access to your recorded and live videos streams. Facebook and Twitter activities will help your members stay in touch with your social media posts and conversations, as well as allow them to share your content with their friends and family. It helps keep all your online channels in one convenient location with easy access.
Here are a few examples of religious apps built with Andromo:
If your target audience is multilingual, you’re covered by our multilingual support. You can communicate effectively to everyone, regardless of language barriers. If you need to provide live translations during meetings or worship, use the SHOUTcast Radio feature to stream live translations discretely and effectively.
There is so much you can do with Andromo – ebooks, podcasts, photo galleries, and even maps to help people find their way to your worship place. Your imagination is the only limit to what you can accomplish.
Promoting your app
Promoting a religious app is way easier than promoting any other type of app. If your church has multiple locations, you can coordinate with your leaders to promote the app in their local congregations. A religious app is a need, not a want. So getting installs is very easy, even if the app is not so elegantly designed. People are more interested in the content than anything else. But don’t ignore design. The user experience is just as important for a congregation as it is for any secular activity or organization.
Soon, even offerings and donations will be collected via mobile apps. Some religious groups already use online shopping carts on their websites to collect offerings and donations, but members have to enter their credit card details all the time. There’s a lot of opportunity to automate this with a mobile app. This would save their congregants a significant amount of time and allow them to concentrate on what’s most important – the worship and prayer services.
Does all this sound complicated? Do you need to be some techy person to be able to pull this off? The answer is NO! Creating an animated Powerpoint presentation is way more complicated than building your app on Andromo. We built Andromo with the average person in mind. So anyone can build an app – even you. What are you waiting for? Roll your sleeves and dig in!
