OCV Standard Features:
Rss News Feed
Many organizations already utilize 1 or more blogs to update their users on topics of interest. If your existing blog has an “RSS” feed, we can likely intercept this feed and pull it into the app. If you do not have an existing blog or are not tied to one specific blog location, OCV will set you up with your own blog on our system. Updates to a blog are automatically pushed out to your app.
Youtube? Vimeo? Whatever online platform you already use for hosting your video(s), we can integrate with your app. If you do not have a preferred host location, OCV can setup you up with one of our flagships services, OCVmedia. This is a premium service that you can easily take advantage of.
Social Media Integration
This feature allows you to host audio files on your app. For businesses, this is a toll that allows you to podcast news or even tips to clients and potential clients, for churches this could be sermon podcasting. There are many possibilities for the podcast feature of an OCVapp.
Notes (Meetings, News, etc.)
Integrating your photos into your app is easy to do. Flickr, Picasa or many of the other online photo sharing platforms integrate nicely with the use of their independent “RSS” feeds. We can help you setup a photo hosting site. We prefer Picasa but we can help you setup your free or premium account on another platform.
If you are already streaming live video content, we can integrate with most platforms. Typically the live stream is simply a “web view” link that takes the user out of the app and into the web browser. If you do not have a live stream location, OCV can setup you up with one of our flagships services, OCVlive. This is a premium service that you can easily take advantage of.
This feature was developed so that you can give a basic look into the life of your organization. This dynamic slideshow allows you to control the images that your users will see when they visit your app. By using an outside photo source, OCV can create a slideshow for you that you could update everyday if you 'd like.
In App Advertising
If your organization has interest in promoting other messages from other organizations within your app, you can have OCV work with you to have advertisers promoted within your app. Example: If you are a non-profit and you have organizations that sponsor your non-profit, you can extend value to your sponsors by working with OCV to include advertisements from your sponsors.
Our team of developers and graphic designers will work with you to make your app look just the way you would like. Most organizations prefer to make their app graphics look similar to their website to preserve their "brand." Every app that we build is build custom to match the look and feel of your website, or any other look that you might be going for.
