Dear Members:
 
Our church directory is now available to view on your mobile device! Instant Church Directory - the program we use to build our church directory - has released a free app for church members to download on their Apple and Android devices.  
 
To download the app to your Apple device, click here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/instant-church-directory/id589542221?ls=1&mt=8

To download the app to your Android device or Nook tablet, click here:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.instantchurchdirectory.members

To download the app to your Kindle Fire, click here:

You will be asked to enter in your email address as it is listed in our directory. If your email address isn't listed in the directory, let Gloria Squires know so it can be added. Once you enter your email address, you will receive a password. You will receive one password per device. For example, you will need to register both your iPhone and your iPad. Entering the password starts the download of the directory to your device, and once it has completed you will be able to search for families and members and call, email and text right from the app.  The first time you access the app, it may take a few minutes for everything to download.  After that, updates will download relatively quickly.

You’re worried about security and privacy, and so are we. Members have to register each device and directories can’t be shared. Further, only members we authorize can gain access and directories are automatically “wiped” from all their devices if we revoke access.

If you have any questions about security or access, please email us at webmaster@palmettopreschurch.org.

We will still publish hard copies of the directory at your request.  If you would like a hard copy, please let Gloria know via email or by calling the church at 884-1504.

 


What is the Instant Church Directory Member App and who can access it?

 

This is a free app that allows your members to sync your church's directory to their iPhone, iPad, iPad Mini, Android device (including Nook's) or Kindle Fire. Members will be able to view the church and staff information, as well as search and view family members. Members will also be able to call, email or text if a phone number or email address is available on the church, staff or family details. Any changes that are generated on Instant Church Directory Online will automatically download to each member's devices, ensuring they always have the latest information.


Who can access the app?

Anyone who has an email address listed in the directory (under their family details) will be able to request access to download and sync the directory on their device. Each member will receive a password per device, which cannot be shared with other members. Any member that is set to Inactive will not be able to procure a password. If a member has the directory on their device, and is later set to Inactive, they will no longer be able to sync and access the directory until they are set back to Active. Furthermore, all of the data is protected by SSL so only our members (who have provided and email address) will have access to the directory.
