1. Help us be social. Like us on facebook. Follow us on twitter.  I'm hoping that to generate some buzz as we launch the app, so if you already know about Clips, help me out by letting your social networks know about it.


2. Set your calendars for August 9th.

On August 9th, Clips for iPhone will make its debut on the App Store.  I've been anxiously awaiting the day I would release the app for a long time now, so make sure you get the app the day it comes out.

3. Write us a great review.

Having good reviews is very important for apps on the App Store, especially in the early stages in the life of an app.  Once you download the app, try it out and if you like it, take some time out to share a review on the App Store.

4. Let us know what you'd like to see.

Clips has gotten to the point that it is at because of great feedback that I've gotten along the way from people that have been able to try out what I was working on.  There are already features like "Suggest a Clip" that are in the near future because of people letting me know that they would love this type of addition in the app.

5. Buy Clips for your volunteers.

Part of the reaosn that I made Clips was that I knew it would be a valuable resource for our 8th grade small group leaders.  Because I made the app, I have the luxury of giving the app away freely to my volunteers.  If I didn't make it, I would use Apple's "Gift this App" feature on iTunes and buy it for anyone on my volunteer team that has an iOS device.
