I was recently contacted on Twitter by a company who has built an app that allows people in your church or people in the community to find and stay connected. This is their video.
I just started working with them yesterday to make a mobile site for FaithPoint. This will be beneficial for a little while but I do not believe that we will keep it long term. That remains to be seen.
Do not expect this to be like an app similar to what you might see from Mars Hill, NewSpring, Elevation and so on. This app does not link to blogs, or support video. I am not sure what they plan for in the future.
This is what you can expect:
When you register with SmartChurch, you will be able to search for your church and join or connect to the church. There you will be connected and able to stay up to date with what is going on.
There is a wall. I am going to use this to post letters, sermon notes, and blog posts.
There is an events page where when an event is posted, you can help your church keep track of who will be attending by RSVP with the app.
I might write another post updating how the app works for FaithPoint.
If your church uses this app, I would like to know what you think about it.
