This app enables users to interact with both the conference AND other users. Through it’s CONTEST tab. The Contest section allows users to upload a photo or video of their testimony about the conference, share it with friends, and potentially be featured in next year’s conference promotional video.
Another interactive feature is the UNITED tab which enables users to “check-in” and track their prayer life with others around the country. You can “check-in” using your Current Location or a nearby parish (yes, the app is pre-populated with nearby parishes!) When you check-in, you can record that you are Praying, Going to Mass, Going to Youth Group, Going to Confession, or Going to Adoration. Once you log the activity, when you go-to Steubenville.org (or use the “+” button on the app) you can see an entire map of the country and check out who else is “United” in Prayer with you.
Finally, if the Conferences themselves weren’t enough, this app has a TOPICS tab which enters you into a world FULL of digital content on ANY topic you would want to learn about: Faith, Sacraments, Morality, Mary, Vocations, and tons more!
Another Con for the app is top-level design. It’s just 6 lines of text headers with a seemingly random “+” in the bottom right hand corner. This “+” actually enables you to add testimonies and other faith information (like the UNITED tab) – but there’s not much intuitive-ness to it. To be honest though – I wouldn’t be so hard on the app if I didn’t think FUS could quickly make this app GREAT, I really do love this app.
