What's the difference between a mobile app & mobile website?
A mobile church website is one that can only be accessed by opening a web browser on your phone and navigating to it through there. All sites we build have a mobile optimized website included. It is made up of all your pages from the full site, since in reality, it is your full website, just in a more easily readable form. Your custom church website with us already includes this kind of mobile website.
Apps are actual applications that are downloaded from the Google or Apple App Store and installed on a mobile device. They do not require a web browser and are just a click of a button away from being opening by the end user, since the icon goes right on their mobile desktop. The app is not your full website but pulls in your most important data that you want, such as sermons, announcements, calendars, and even your Facebook page. Plus, with an app, you get to use push notifications to all your users. A mobile website cannot do that.

Frequently Asked Questions
MychurchwebApps supports iOS (the Apple iPhone platform) and Android (the Google platform). So you get native apps for the iPhone, the iPod Touch and the iPad using iOS version 5.0 and higher as well as for every variety of Android smartphone or tablet. In this way, we cover the majority of the app market.
If you are a Mychurchwebsite.com client using our content management system, auto syncing all the data to the app is done for you automatically.
If you are NOT a Mychurchwebsite.com client, we would need to evaluate your content management system to see if it outputs the correct data. If not, we can sometimes install a small utility on your website to get more data to us. Otherwise, we can still get some data from your RSS, Podcast, or Calendar feeds, but not all of it.
Apple assesses your app according to a set of technical, content, and design criteria to make sure it works as it should and does not contain any objectionable language or material. This can take about two weeks. We submit the app for you and see the process through to its approval. As soon as the app is approved, we ensure that it is placed in the App Store.
To submit your app to the Google PlayStore (for the Android platform) we must submit accompanying texts and screenshots. Android apps do not have to be approved however. Very often, apps are available at Google Play in just a few hours.
Push Notifications are free within your subscription. Send an unlimited number of messages. Receiving a push message is also free for the user. To send a push notification, you will need to login to our special mobile app website and fill out the form to send one. It's quick AND easy.
There are no long term contracts you have to agree to. However, because there is a lot of work involved in setting up each app for each church based on their needs, if you do stop your service before 12 months is up, we do have to charge a $295 cost to cover the setup.
