Apps for Israel:
Facebook: We have a private group setup. I added everyone that I could find on FB. Email me your Facebook link if you still need to be added (facebook.com/Your_Name).
Guidebook: Rod is still working on the guidebook, which will be totally “yuge” and awesome, believe me. When it’s ready there will be a physical notebook for everyone, a digital copy (pdf), and a web-based version. The Guide Book is still being updated, but the web version is live right here on this site, see “Study Guide” on the menu.
Zello “Walkie-Talkie” App: Search the iPhone or Android store for the app “Zello.” Send me your Zello name after get the app working and I will add you to the Israel group.
Google Hangouts App: Hangouts should be available on Android and iPhone. Join link (Opens in new tab): https://hangouts.google.com/group/XepX9P4QT0w1YV1B3
WhatsApp App: WhatsApp should be available on Android and iPhone. Send me your WhatsApp name and I’ll add you to the group.
We will NOT be using all of these apps. We’ll play around with them as we get closer to the trip and see what works best. We’ll definitely be using the guidebook, and at a minimum, we’ll use the Facebook Group for posting photos and videos just for the group, and it looks like we’ll use Zello for some “on the ground” communications in Israel.
