Prayer Ireland – cross platform mobile app

Leap were proud to partner with Prayer Ireland earlier this year with the launch of their mobile app, which has had thousands of downloads and users from across the globe.

Here are some highlights of the functionality we developed as part of this exciting project:

Cross platform mobile app
The app was developed for both Android and Apple using the Ionic framework, meaning the app is available to download for free on the Play Store and App Store.

Login and registration – sign in with Google or Facebook
Registration and login was made quick and easy for users. They can either signup with their email address, or use their existing Google or Facebook social media account.

Social sharing
Articles can be shared across multiple social platforms such as messages, WhatsApp, Facebook, Messenger and email from the app.

WordPress content management
The app was built upon the hugely popular WordPress, enabling administrators to have control of the app content, using WordPress’s easy-to-use platform.

Cross-timezone calendar
The vision of Prayer Ireland was to unite users from across the globe in prayer for Ireland. The calendar functionality supports all timezones across the globe.

Map – GPS
Building on the global theme, we used the GPS built into smartphones to detect and plot each user’s approximate location on an interactive map, which gives a stunning world view of who is actively using the app.

Push notifications
Push notifications make it easy to engage your users on a regular basis. We have developed the app to send regular notifications to its users based on their preferences.
