Ever since ChurchApp was started, we've strived to build an easy-to-use and clean interface, removing the complexity from church management systems whilst still providing the powerful tools and reporting needed for a growing church. Over the last 9 months, we've undertaken one of our most ambitious projects yet - making the whole of ChurchApp truly mobile, tablet and desktop friendly...
Over the course of the project, we've spent a vast number of hours considering how you might use ChurchApp on touch devices, we've reviewed every single page of the application, we've rewritten every single line of code that's related to the visual appearance and we've spent months testing it all. Today we're excited to release ChurchApp's "responsive" mode across all accounts, available as of now!
If you're accessing ChurchApp on a desktop/laptop computer, you'll find that most things are much the same as they have been, but everything has been smartened up, with more consistency as you move from screen to screen. Overall, you'll notice a cleaner and more modern look and feel, in particular with the navigation.
On a tablet in portrait mode, you'll find that the navigation is neatly hidden from view, but becomes available by clicking on the "hamburger" icon in the top left of the screen. Navigation within each module is available by clicking on the down arrow on the grey sub-navigation menu.
The biggest difference will be for users who access ChurchApp on their smartphones, where you'll find you no longer need to pinch and zoom to access any functionality. All page actions can be accessed through the "Actions" menu - just touch and choose your action.
We're really proud of all the work that's gone into this enormous update and hope you will be too. If you're used to accessing ChurchApp on-the-go, we're confident you'll benefit significantly and find yourself much more productive.
Over the next few months, we'll be releasing updates to our iOS and Android apps, allowing you to access all of this functionality from within the apps, as well as introducing the ability to switch between ChurchApp and My ChurchApp in just a couple of clicks!
As ever, we'd love to hear your feedback, just get in touch.
This is just the beginning,
