CharismaNewsApp-webIf you are one of the hundreds of thousands of people who have downloaded the Charisma News smartphone app for iPhone or Android, we have good news. Our breaking Christian news app, which also includes the mobile Christian Retailing news channel, is getting a major upgrade in the next couple of weeks.

While we work to offer an improved experience on our app—which provides you with up-to-the-minute Christian product industry news on your smartphone as well as general Christian news, spiritual insights from respected Christian leaders like Joyce Meyer, R.T. Kendall and J. Lee Grady, and spiritual growth teachings, study resources and more—you may experience some glitches. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.

We know how important apps are to today’s mobile readers, and we’re committed to staying in touch through this transition to let you know the status of our upgrade. During this time, please feel free to contact us if you are having issues with the app so we can move swiftly with our IT team to correct them. We’re relying on you for feedback that will ultimately help us improve your mobile experience.

Here are some issues you might experience as we transition: 1) You may not be able to get the most recent articles delivered to your smartphone; 2) some features, such as Favorites, Search, and Offline Reading, may be temporarily disabled; (3) the app may appear frozen or unresponsive. If that happens, you can always log on to for our latest news stories.

Again, we apologize for any inconvenience you may experience. With every opportunity for change, there are challenges—especially with technology. Please know that we are working diligently to provide you with an app you can rely on to access your trusted resource for breaking Christian news and teachings.

One last important note: At a key point during this transition, we will send out a notification asking you to upgrade the app. Once you get this notification, it will be crucial for you to upgrade the app. Until you do, you will not be able to receive any new articles and the app may even appear completely empty, like an empty bookshelf.

Thanks again for using the Charisma News app and for reading Christian Retailing and other Charisma Media web properties. Our team works hard to equip and inspire you with breaking news from a spiritual perspective.
