At first sight, i thought mobile friday sermon app is a proposal for muslims who need to attend Friday sermons weekly but cannot due to travel or some other reasons.
However, this app developed by Ahmadiyya community mostly looks like including summaries of sermons, and the intention is either getting prepared for the sermon context or for remembering what has been discussed.
It will be an interesting idea to explore a virtual friday sermon ritual. It will probably wouldn’t be a desired situation for its followers, since it is a highly embodied practice. but what if the follower of the faith lives in Arctics without public, or an area where s/he can not find any fellow followers, such a concept can be a way to participate in the ritual and its cause.. worth thinking..
App information can be found here.
