What is a mobile website?
What do you see when you navigate to your church's website using the browser on your phone? That is what we call your mobile website presence.
A mobile website is simply website files that have been optimized for appearance and useability on a mobile device. MobiBuilder produces an HTML5 mobile website (web app) which you can use as your mobile website presence if your current solution is not "Mobile Friendly"
What is the difference between a mobile website and a mobile web app?
Is a mobile website the same as a mobile app?
Great question! The short answer is "no"... we published an article on this topic that you might find helpful.
Can we use the HTML5 web app produced by MobiBuilder as our mobile website presence?

Do you offer a discount to church plants or startups?
We love church plants! We also know that church start ups often experience financial pressure as well. We'd like to help by offering a 25% discount to new churches. If your church started within the last 2 years then you qualify.
We don't offer the discount via online purchases. If you are ready to get started just give us a call and one of our consultants will assist you or fill out the form on our Contact Page

Package & Pricing Questions
Will my app work on Apple and Android products?
Does our church need Apple and Android developer accounts?
Are the apps produced by MobiBuilder native apps?
How will a mobile app help our church?
Can I see my app before it is published?
Will our church app be approved by Apple?

Can we add features after our app is published?
Yes, with MobiBuilder you can login 24/7 to make edits to content on any of your existing app tabs or add new features to your live app.
Our online CMS (content management system) is a huge advantage in terms of flexibility. You will be able to make changes and add features without the help of a programmer AND without the need to push app updates through Apple's App Store. This saves you time since Apple will put the update through their review process before the update goes live.
Will our app work on iPad?
Do you get all features with every package?
Can you build the app for us?
Absolutely, we have a crack design team ready to customize your church's app for you if you need us to!
We know many churches have staffs that are already stretched. And some churches just don't need one more thing on their to do list. We'll be happy to give you an awesome app design that you'll be excited to roll out to your congregation!
Will you be adding new features in the future?
We're continually working to improve our features and adding new features that can impact ministry as well.
Some new features in the future may require an official update via iTunes by Apple. If you choose to update your app with the new features (optional) there is a small update fee that will apply. (Sorry... Apple can be a little finicky!) Of course you will have a choice to implement new features on your app or to keep it as is. If you choose not to utilize new features your app performance will not be affected.
Can we offer mobile giving in our app?
We have found that we can incorporate most mobile or online giving systems into our apps.
Not all giving platforms are optimized for mobile use though. This means that the user experience is not designed for use on mobile devices, resulting in small text and general difficulty in navigating the forms.
If your church is looking for a giving solution, you may want to check our our in house giving platform here
. And don't worry, we've optimized it for mobile use.
