Sacrament Agenda App for Android

Postby kahughes » Tue Jul 05, 2016 2:37 am

I have been developing an Android app over the past few months for sacrament meeting agenda. I will upload the source code to github soon and share the link with this site to allow for other to develop further, if they wish. This is the first version and is quite restrictive but works really well for standard sacrament meeting with 3 speakers and intermediate hymn. https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B1K5uNiEE2RncUhtQkFwN3AyZUU
I have started to develop a version 2 where the agenda items can be added and moved around, so will be a lot more dynamic but this is time consuming and I don't really have that much time.

The app separates the different items needed for a sacrament meeting (https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B1K5uNiEE2RnNHlXNGNsQVNDTDg). You can add different information at different points throughout the week and can change the date items so can be rescheduled. I have served on the bishopric and as bishop for the past 10 years so I designed the app be easily navigable and be able to make quick last minute changes.

All the options (ward and stake business, acknowledgements and announcements all hang together through the agenda item. To add items click on the blue header bar. To edit items click on the item you wish to edit. To delete items swipe right on the item you want to delete.

I have also added a web service option to the app. It makes things so much easier because items to be added by any member of the bishopric and sync with all devices. This works on the principle of last saved is the most up to date. So depending on sync times could over-write other edits. So a sync first is always recommended ;)

The web service option require you to have an online database. It uses mysql and php. I will also share the script to create the tables needed for the database and I will also share the php file that is needed to interface with the app and database. It is only one file (but with a lot of if statements!).

I have used this for a few months now and works well and hopefully with a bit of collaboration the app can be improved.

The app can be downloaded from here https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B1K5uNiEE2RnZ0dmUWp6Vk4xcnc

I'm sure if you want to try this out you will have loads of questions. If you need answers then let me know.

Thanks

I don't currently have a calling where I need to keep a sacrament agenda, and my bishopric isn't as tech-oriented as I am, but hopefully others will be able to test it out and give some good feedback.
