Smart church was difficult to use with my current congregation.

Value for Money

Pros: It is a great Facebook like group app that allows the convenience of messaging and posting in the same location.

Cons: It was not something that my older congregation could easily adapt to using. From the beginning even with many educational sessions, there were struggles with understanding. This was perhaps due to their resistance to change in general.

Thanks for your review Cardelia. We appreciate that your church took time to use our product in 2015 and we hope you'll consider coming back as we have made many improvements since then including a few of the features you requested.

Love the free directory

Comments: The app is sharp, w/o strange bugs, straight-forward, and practical. By Following my church on SmartChurch, I can turn off the push notifications from my Facebook app and just receive important notifications from my church. The Followers tab acts as my church directory, and at the touch of the screen I can call, email, or get turn-by-turn directions to anyone in my church. In short, the app makes my church look super cool, and it is far easier to communicate with everyone. The greatest advantage to SmartChurch is the affordability. Every other church app will cost my church a crippling amount of money to create and use. SmartChurch has many free features, and the upgrades are low cost.

The only con I see is that the app is new and up-to-date, and many churches appear to me to be slightly behind the times. If a church wants to be slick and "on top" of technology, then this is the app to use.

Practical, clear, easy to integrate!

Comments: I have found this app easy to use and easy to integrate into my church. The Free version is great. Now, having used the Premium version....I think every church will see value and added member interaction when they use it. The setup is easy and fast. After a demo, I was ready to get started.

Great to hear Michael! Yes, the demo does illuminate a lot. It's hard to describe to people what all this does until they see it.

SmartChurch makes it easy for church leaders, staff and members to invite others!

Comments: As a church pastor I love this invite feature. The church members and I easily invite people to church, outreach events, holiday specials and anything else we have going on to reach the lost. I send them the invite along with the details and they quickly download the SmartChurch app and see the details. Then they browse service times and all other posts regarding church activities!

Awesome!

This APP Rocks

Comments: I absolutely LOVE this APP!!! This App allows me to be in contact with my Members 24/7. I can post church events and even have them RSVP. I can post my Church Profile so everyone can find us. This app is a lifesaver. We can post on the wall and increase Communication in our church and that brings Connection and promotes Community.
