The geo-fencing feature has been a huge enhancement to the push notification system and the marketability of our apps. You can fence off a specific area for your push notification, and when users enter that area, they’ll automatically receive the message on their device. By setting an active period for the push notification, you can limit the time period for the message—for instance, if you’d like all users who enter the area before 5 PM tomorrow to receive your push notification.

If you choose not to select any subscriptions, the push notification will go out to ALL users, even if they have all subscriptions turned off.

Tabs

This is an Info Tab and can be thought of as a static HTML page. Inside this tab, you can insert just about anything that you can insert on a regular web page. The “what you see is what you get” editor, which allows you to customize the description, is a great way to display information about your church. Here you may add images, hyper links and more.

Podcasts are a great feature to offer in your mobile app. The hands-off feature allows you to integrate audio podcasts, which automatically update with the latest content to keep your audience in the know. After you integrate the feed, your work is done. If you do not have a RSS Audio feed, we can provide one for you.

• Fan Wall Posts: Total comments or replies the user has posted to the Fan Wall tab.

The Tell Friend tab is a great social tool that banks on word of mouth. You place the sharing power in your users’ hands, allowing them to share your app listing URLs—and thus your church in just a few clicks. On top of the great benefits, it takes just a few minutes to set up!
