The sermon editor on the ipad is seamless and easy.   I have the first generation Ipad 2 and teach a weekly Wednesday night study.  I tried it out last week and was very pleased at the filled in handout part of the sermon editor with the text in a split screen.  I had exported the handout and made copies for everyone and  was also able to track with the handout with the Scripture off the Ipad. In addition, I appreciate the demographic info concerning who, what, when and where it was preached.  One more thing is the synchronization between Ipad, phone, mac, and web app with the sermon editor.  Thanks!

Hooray for iPad Wink

Wondering when we humble Android users might expect the same functionality?

Hi Stephen

Looking again at Dan's post I don't understand it!

At the moment you can't edit sermons on the iPad, you can access ones created on the desktop or on the web app. So the same functionality as on Android

True. You cannot edit the sermon on the ipad, but I was referring to the specific tool title: "Sermon Editor".

Here are the features hopefully more clearer

1. The handout feature that allows you to export "fill in the blank" portions can be viewed with the "filled in" portions. The printed off handout for the congregants of course has the handout with the "fill in the blank" portions blank.

2.  The handout (from Sermon editor) can be in one half of the screen, the Scripture in the other

3.  As a presenter, it is helpful to see the underlining of the filled in portion while speaking.

4. One of the best features is the access to the completed document on the ipad (or android) so that you can have the most updated version. (that was created via the web app or on a desktop)

Hi Dan

Dan Langston:

I'm sorry but I still can't see any reference to a "Sermon Editor" tool on the iPad app. Can you clarify? (And apologies for not seeing the point you are making)

Dan Langston:

Agreed - while I don't use the "fill in the blank" feature much (if at all) I find your point 2 is really, really helpful.

Agreed - I was doing some last minute changes yesterday during the service from my iPad on the web app and it updated the iPad app document seamlessly.

Is there a way to prepare a sermon doc on a desktop that has active links that would trigger the Bible verse in the split panel?

At the moment while the links are active on the desktop they are not active on the iPad - which is a real shame.
