    Brothers,
    I’ve been thinking about asking about a APP for my lodge. Would this be beneficial? Please give me some advice!

    Our GL developed our own. It has not been updated and maintenance in question.

    For communication for our Lodge - we use email and also whatsapp. Whatsapp is working well for us - anyone with a phone and internet connection can use it on the go. I would assume you can also get it on desktop. That's supported by Facebook (but email is primary with Whatsapp secondary as not everyone uses FB).


    What do you want to achieve by having an app ?

    Can you create a business case where the need cannot be met by other free tools ?

    It looks great! But it doesn’t have my State what’s the route to take?

    No idea, honestly. I don’t implement them and, honestly, rarely use them. Email seems to still be the most common form of communication in my lodges.

    GL of Wisconsin also uses Our Lodge Page. I find it very helpful.

    We use an app called "Band". It gives mass notifications.

    We use Band as a communications tool for international gaming.
