About this app

A help for Jehovah's Witnesses in their field service to quickly take notes and stay organized. It's very easy to keep track of your territories, all your return visits, your service time for the month and plan your day or week of door to door ministry.

Never forget a return visit again or be frustrated trying to find you paper notes!

NOTE: Please send suggestions by e-mail instead of leaving them in a comment, since I can't reply if I don't understand what you mean, and the suggestion will never be implemented!

Features:
* Easily create and generate territories with streets, buildings or rural addresses
* Tag addresses with GPS positions and see them on a map
* Make fast notes of a visit with just a few clicks
* Automatically update visit dates
* Create a ministry schedule for your service year or month
* Share information using NFC
* Keep track of return visits, bible studies and magazine routes
* Keep track of return visits by date, neighborhood or bookmarks
* Send addresses and return visits as SMS if several publishers work a territory or as data to import directly into Ministry Assistant.

* See statistics over a territory, what time and days you've been working there
* Keep track of your service time for each month and year, and send the report by SMS or e-mail

Good app! I use it almost every day! Only minor issues I have is that it's not so clear how to use this app with Territory Helper (e.g. importing/exporting and synchronizing territories-Tutorial?) Also it would be nice if the scheduler calendar feature would allow individual duplicate schedule entries for different months and days without having to always highlight and copy several days each time for every month/week (slow process). Thanks for your hard work, practical and productive app!

This app is so useful in keeping track of my time and placements! Thank you for all the hard work you have done to make it available! I do wish there was a way to keep the timer from closing by mistake. There have been times when I had the timer rolling and I mistakenly closed it out somehow, before recording my time. I wish that when the timer is going, if anything prompts the timer to close, there was an "Are you sure?" prompt. Otherwise, I love this app! Thanks again!

I really like this app. I only wish it was available on my Windows PC. Putting in information about my RV's on my phones' tiny keyboard or tablet is not a comfortable or easy task. Especially with Covid-19, this would be a huge help. Being able to sync devices would be even better. Just my thoughts.
