This is version 2 of the Android client and is work in progress. Not all functions have been developed yet but the delivered functions are tested.
This version of the client works with OpenLP 2.0 but is designed to support OpenLP 2.2 as it has SSL and user authentication.
OpenLP stands for “Open Source Lyrics Projection” and is presentation software developed for churches to provide a single easy to use interface for the projection needs of a typical worship service.
OpenLP has searchable databases of songs and Bible verses allowing them to be projected instantly or saved in a pre-prepared order of service file. Themes allow for a variety of presentation options and allow you to add attractive visuals to enhance your presentations. PowerPoint and OpenOffice presentations, videos and audio files can be run from within the program removing the need to switch between different programs. Alert messages can be displayed so the nursery or car park stewards can notify the congregation easily.

- Select Address and Port of running OpenLP instance.
