Hello,

My church has finally upgraded to a wireless system. We can now use presentation software. I would like to use Proclaim without the use of a laptop. Does Proclaim come for the iPad? Or is that just the remote app?

We hope to expand Proclaim's cross-platform usability in the future, but at the moment only the remote app works on the iPad.

The App for Proclaim on tablets (including iPad) and phone may only control (or follow) the presentation: it if not a full featured edition of Proclaim so it cannot be used to create or edit a presentation.  However, one can use the iPad to present it via AirPlay. Also, we are working to support quickscreens right now, and work on autoadvance (for the loops) will begin soon.

For home Bible studies, I have plugged my Apple TV in, remote desktop (I use Splashtop) into my office computer to run Proclaim, and then screencast the iPad to the Apple TV. It works quite well, if your internet connection is good. The big downside is that, since you are broadcasting the screen, you have to be viewing the presentation on your iPad, not the application.

Justin, did you know that you can Airplay from iPad app? I mention this cause home bible studies is what I imagined it being used for. If you have tried it, what made you not use it?

I did not realize that! I will have to try that next time. Thanks for the heads up, Jordan.

Awesome, yeah let me know what you think. Essentially, after opening the app, pull open control center, and turn on mirroring. The app will take over with a black screen. Then any presentation you open will be presented on the display.

I have used Keynote for my presentations for years. I just plug the iPad to the projector screen adapter and ready to go. I understand what all of you are describing. However, the Proclaim software should me much more user friendly to use. I should be able to connect the same way I can with Keynote. I should not have to mirror or add other technology just to use this software for a presentation. I hope that comes soon to Proclaim.

Hey Jim, even though Apple calls it mirroring, the second the Proclaim app detects the screen, it will go fullscreen, so it is not actually mirroring or adding another technology. Just using Apple's airplay. It would also work with the physical cables Apple sells too.

I was unaware that the Keynote app does that automatically, we probably could add a button right to the Proclaim app to start outputting which would be more user-friendly then having to go to control center.

Turns out Apple doesn't let people do this... I checked in Keynote, and for Airplay they make you go to Control Center too. I'm going to get a cable soon to test the Proclaim Remote with hooking it up to a projector not via AirPlay.

To use Proclaim on ipad I would need the ability to write on slides. I do this all the time in Keynote with an Apple Pencil.

I just purchased Proclaim this week, May 21, 2019, and just realized there are no editing capabilities on an iPad. Why?

In a day when mobile devices are replacing desktops and laptops, why would be Remote Control only with no editing ability?  That makes no sense at all.

Please bring editing to the IOS devices

Any update on this?  Any chance we can see the ability to create/edit proclaim presentations on iOS soon?

Our goal is to support a web version of Proclaim. This would allow you to edit on mobile if connected to your network. However, we are still in the early stages on discussing the best approach on solving this. Right now, very little development has been created on this process.

We'll keep you updated and make sure to announce when this feature is published.

I know that FaithLife realizes that web-based applications are losing their market share.  We live in a mobile-device culture.  The exisitng Proclaim app should be fully editable in a mobile environment.  Logging into a web-based application is a good temporary work-around, but it is a clunky mode of operation.

Not trying to be critical, but pratical.  I LOVE Proclaim, and the FaithLife products.  Just wanted to point out the obvious flaw of web-based applications.

Keep up the great work.

Feedback is always appreciated here Pastor Wynn. No sweat on the response as this is how we are able to build and look at what people are wanting. 

Appreciate the feedback and we'll keep note when the time comes on us developing this feature.
