CHICAGO, IL (February 11, 2011) – The Evangelical Covenant Church mobile application for smart phones has been redesigned and expanded to support not only iPhones, but also the popular Android devices.
Called CovLink, the free application currently includes the daily online Covenant news report – stories appear as they are added throughout the day. It also includes information on four major Covenant events – Annual Meeting, Midwinter, the Feast and CHIC 2012.
A third feature contains several Covenant videos, including the Feast 2011 promo, several video segments from the just-completed Midwinter Conference, and the five theme videos that premiered during last year’s 125th Annual Meeting in St. Paul, Minnesota: We Are a Caring Church, We Are a Calling Church, We Are a Sending Church, We Are a Discipling Church, and We Are an Immigrant Church. Additional videos will be added on a regular basis in ensuing months.
The app is fully integrated with Twitter, Facebook, and email, allowing the user to share content with others.
The Find-A-Church mapping feature, which was part of the original iPhone application introduced last year, is being re-engineered and will be added back to the application for both iPhone and Android as soon as that work is completed.
Those who have already downloaded the first iPhone application – titled CovChurch – will want to delete that application and download the new CovLink version, as the older CovChurch app has been discontinued and will no longer be supported.
To quickly access the free CovLink application for iPhone or Android, visit the CovLink page on the Covenant website, which contains direct links to the apps in both the Apple Apps Store and the Android Marketplace. Users can also visit those store websites and search for the CovLink application.
