Do you enjoy visiting CofE churches?

A new Android app (‘Keyholder’) has been developed which displays opening information for visitors and tourists to Church of England churches.

 The majority of churches, about 13,000, are included. Its main aim is to show which churches are open to the public during the day and which ones are locked, have keyholders or are open at certain restricted times. In addition, the app allows you to add your own information, and the app can be synchronised with a central server allowing you to share information, ratings and comments with others.

 The app is designed for those like to visit English parish churches for their heritage and so forth, and is not intended to provide information on service times or contact details for church officials.

There are two versions available on the Play Store.

A free demo version which is very restricted and has no access to the server:

and the full application available for purchase at £4.99:
