I found this great blog called Christian Web Trends and it discusses a recent church mobile app survey and where churches and members measure up on this issue. Here’s a few highlights from the article:
- The most important app features are: (1) news/announcements, (2) information about the church, (3) alerts, (4) map to church, and (5) evangelism tool
- Users prefer a mobile app over using the mobile web
- Larger churches (500 members or more) are more willing to purchase a phone app than smaller ones.
I’m interested in finding out more information from the author, Paul Steinbrueck, about “evangelism tools” and church information. I think it would be pretty awesome to have a phone app to receive church updates and to make donations/offerings. What do you think? What types of church phone app would you want?
