    Dear Church Tech Today,

    I am a theology student and youth minister in London. I thought I might take the opportunity to make you aware of a smartphone app I am working on. It is called Flame and will be available on iOS, Android and HTML5. It’s aim is to become a global testimony wall for Christian’s all around the world, linking testimonies by events and location.

    Please spread the word, it is only really any use if theirs a community of people behind it that are ready to share and contribute.

    God bless

    Lauren, et al.,
    Thank you for all you do for the faith-based community!

    Question: Do you ever accept guest blog posts for Church Tech Today? If so, what topics and other parameters might you desire?

    We tend to specialize in personal and professional development for corporate and faith-based organizations, but if that’s too far off into the bushes for what you’re trying to do here, we understand.

    Let us know and keep fighting the good fight. You are needed!

    Hey guys! Out of a need for an EasyWorship-type app (dual display and such), I created LyricsPro for Android. I would love if your team would check it out. It’s on the market already.

    Dear Church Tech today,

    I would like to set up an online place to store church documents so that members of the consistory will have a single place to view them while at home. I thought about Google Drive, but the sign up suggests that you are a person. I would like to sign up to use as the church. I’ve read about Google Apps for non-profits- would you suggest this? Do you know of any other churches using this? Are there any other online sites available for this.

    Thanks in advance for any suggestion you can provide
