The other day I had phone with a friend / colleague who develops websites and iPhone apps. We had a great discussion about what could be created to help UUs share our faith, info for newcomers, and apps for congregations.
Last night on Facebook the issue of apps came up with some UU colleagues.
At some point UUs are going to need to develop some apps for mobile devices. I’m wondering what you’d like to see. Any ideas? Anything specific on your iphone application wish list?
I’d like an app or apps featuring:
- UU historical timeline
- A Famous UUs application sortable by category w/search
- An app template that could be customized per congregation to link to news feed, Twitter, Facebook and Youtube accounts
- An elevator speech app – shake it and it displays one of a random set of statements about our faith
- A UU quote / wayside pulpit feature – shake for new quote
- How about a calendar that shares event info for the UUA, all districts (choose those you care about in settings), and UUA affiliates – It is way too hard to find out what’s happening.
What are your ideas?
Know any UU iphone app developers? Share this post with them. We should start connecting people who can make something happen. Oh, and if you or a UU related organization (including the UUA) are already working on apps, speak up.
