Yesterday Apple cleared version 1.3 for the Mac App Store, so if you’ve already purchased the app, you should already see the update as available.
This update prepares the app for use in OS X Mavericks (10.9), which will be released in the near future. (I bet we’ll get a firm release date at Apple’s recently announced Oct. 22 event.)
Also, Sermon Design 1.3 includes support for using Evernote directly within the App! Evernote is a great way to capture ideas during the “Listen” phase of sermon development, particularly when you’re away from your Mac. (Personally, I love the new interface Evernote built for their app in iOS 7!) Now you can link your Evernote account to Sermon Design, and any notes tagged “sermon design” will be available for editing in the “Listen” phase, sorted with the most recently updated notes at the top. In the “Write” phase, any of these notes will be available for viewing while you write. If you wish, you can change the tags that the app searches for in preferences.
I’ve used Evernote for a long time now, and am really happy about being able to offer access in app. I think it can offer a really great workflow, and enhance the level of intentionality and creativity you bring to the sermon development process—which is exactly why I made Sermon Design in the first place. I hope you find this useful!
Sometime next week, I’ll post a how-to video of how it all works.
