Mobile Notes

In two weeks since launch we’re closing in on 4,000 downloads of the CCV Mobile App.  By far the most used part of the app is the digital sermon notes (47% of all events in the app are for notes, more on in app analytics soon.)

How the notes work is a bit hard to explain, it would be best to download the app and try it out.  Basically though there are a series of fill-in the blanks and free form note fields.  Below is an image showing the basic layout.

The note file itself is just an clip of HTML that is inserted onto the page.  We store the HTML in Arena attached to the same record as the podcast information.

The specific formatting of the note HTML is described in the Sermon Notes HTML documentation.  If you have specific questions I’d be happy to answer them in the comments below.

    Hi Jon! I’m a regular reader of your blog and I’ve noticed that you post a lot of information about mobile apps in regards to the church. I just wanted to tell you to check out ChurchLink – it’s a new mobile app platform for churches that my church is currently using and it’s much more affordable and simple for smaller churches like mine than building a custom app would be… but it also packs a ton of features! Just an FYI. Keep up the good work!
