People open a mobile app to check event calendars, access the bulletin, etc. App users are looking for an experience, and will return to the app as opportunities to connect become available. A mobile app is ideal for repeated engagement with members of the congregation who want to be more involved and belong.
But here is the challenge how do church develop a mobile app that can handle this task of sharing information with their members on all the smart phone platform (Android, Blackberry, windows, Ipad and Iphones) at which the members downloading it on their smart phones won’t have to pay any money.
