Last year we introduced Church Connect as a customizable website and member portal. Church Connect makes it easy for your people to donate online, submit church forms, view and update their profile, register for events, and view upcoming events. With Connect you can easily manage and update your content right within your ChurchTrac account. And now we've made it an installable app!
But how is Church Connect an app if it’s not available on the App Store or Play Store?
That’s a great question! In the world of installable apps, there are actually TWO varieties: NATIVE apps and WEB apps. Native apps are installed from a "Store" on your device; web apps are typically installed from your browser. Both native and web apps are launched from a shortcut (icon) on the home screen, making it convenient for people to use the app. For the user, the primary difference between the two is in how they are installed; once installed, it is often difficult to tell the difference.
Church Connect is your unified web page, member portal, and app platform for interacting with your church people like never before. Whether they download the app or simply view your church’s site, their experience will be seamless. As an added bonus, you (and your church) save both time and money.
