Baptist Press Launches Free App

Baptist Press

Baptist Press, the Southern Baptist Convention’s news service, officially launched a free app today (April 13) connecting to its daily content and to key entities across SBC life.

The app is available in both Android and iPhone formats through Google Play and the Apple Store. Enter a search for “Baptist Press,” using quote marks, for best access to the app.

The app replaces Baptist Press’ mobile site by which smartphone users accessed the news service prior to the redesign of its website last September.

Art Toalston, now in his 24th year as editor of Baptist Press, said the app broadens BP’s media spectrum, including its http://www.BaptistPress.com website and the news service’s ongoing presence on Twitter and Facebook.

“The app also will offer a versatile connection to all of Southern Baptist life, connecting to entity websites that are at the forefront of missions, evangelism, service, discipleship, stewardship and biblical theology,” Toalston said. “We are not through yet,” he added, noting that the app will remain under ongoing development.

Key features of the app include:

— A “News” tab connecting to both BaptistPress.com and to BP en Español, the news service’s Spanish-language weekly edition. The SBC Annual Meeting site also will be displayed from May through July in conjunction with this year’s June 16-17 meeting in Columbus, Ohio.

— A “Media” tab connecting to BP featured videos, photos and comics and to SBC.net, the convention’s website; SBCLIFE, the journal of the SBC Executive Committee; the International Mission Board and North American Mission Board’s news and feature sites; LifeWay Christian Resources’ Facts & Trends magazine; the online newsrooms of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission and GuideStone Financial Resources; the six SBC seminary websites; and WMU (Woman’s Missionary Union).
