Crash Issues 4/5
I’m on an iPhone and haven’t had any issues yet but one of my friends is having issues with the app crashing, making it hard to utilize it. I’m just launching this for my group and I’m afraid this will discourage them greatly. Please help.
Will be removed! 3/5
I DO NOT want recommended Bands! If this is going to be forced and I cannot remove them, I will be looking for another app. for my cheer squads.
Won’t let me upload video 2/5
I just add this app for my church. It will not allow me to add videos which is why I have the app. It always says upload failed. I don’t need the app if I can’t upload video.
Can’t join with a verification code 2/5
It’s not sending me a verification code, I click to resend and it’s not working as well.
Updated review 4/5
Developer does listen to user feedback. Fun app to keep in touch with my groups.
App is very confusing. Very hard to keep track of conversations and not very intuitive for something that should be easy. Use other team apps that work much better.
Great tool for communication. Still a little slow, especially now multiple devices. 4/5
After having reviewed multiple communication tools within our growing missionary-run camp and retreat ministry, we have finally found one that meets most if not all of our needs! The main post feed vs chat gives our staff an opportunity for much needed separation of important and official information and updates vs thoughts and side conversation. Keep it up BAND! Thanks for your attention to your users!
My only complaint is that (potentially due to slow internet in our area) many of our team will often get notifications on one or more device that take 10-15 seconds to load upon opening the app, or multiple menus to scroll through to clear the notification count. I know for me, I enjoy the personalization of the notification system, but when attempting to check/clear my notification counter, it is frustrating when I have to scroll through multiple menus to find where the "culprit" lies. Especially when clicking on a chat then takes 10-15 seconds to actually load. In an ideal world, updates might be pre-loaded before a notification counter is added to the app? And maybe some type of universal notification drop-down/menu like the one used in iOS could be implemented that would allow for an easy check at a glance?
Finally, once the process of checking/clearing notifications is finished on one device, when I pick up my second device, more often than not, I found myself right back where I started, having to go through the same process again.
Thanks for your consideration!
Not for Youth Activities 1/5
Does not have ability to add key information for youth groups. Also discovered through another review that this allows people to create groups that are inappropriate that I wouldn’t want the kids or parents to see.
Crashes will not open 1/5
Worked great before, now it will not open and crashes. I’ve deleted from my phone and re installed but no luck. Help!
Need multitasking split screen on iPad 3/5
Great app, but please make it better to have split screen on ipad
Group call 4/5
I like the app very much but I can’t find the group call feature
Hey developers and workers of band, I have a suggestion/question. Could you make it so you could go live on band (owners of the created band only tho). I have a band and I feel I could communicate and help my members better by going live. And u can have people join ur live so u can discuss in person but not have to travel to a someone.
By Purple ballerina
Can you please make this app accessible to VoiceOver
I was sold until... 2/5
Everything about this app was wonderful until I realized how it’s not something closed like hangouts or slack.
I even saw a “teen dating/naughty” group.
I don’t want my team, my kids, or any members from my staff on something that would promote this stuff.
You need to fix this
Website glitches 3/5
By James Boone
Is there nobody to talk to? I haven’t been able to get on my computer and log into my account. It is really frustrating because I’m a director and I need to be able to communicate with my people. We rely on band heavily. Calendars, files attachments. I need some help. This started two days ago! The only help site I see is in Chinese and I don’t understand that.
Notification bubbles 3/5
The app itself is great, you can easily join a community and make posts, even let others know if you’re going to be there or not. However, the developers of the app seem to think that not having an account linked with your band account is worth a recurring red one in a circle. It’s not necessarily a bad thing, it’s just quite annoying. Developers, let me put it this way for you:
Imagine that you had a coffee shop you went to on a semi regular basis when you were hanging out with a group of friends, but only then! Now imagine that same coffee shop is nearby to the one that you go to on a regular basis, and every day they put up a sign that says “today’s deal:____” however when you go in to see what the deal is, the shop owners are asking you to fill out about 3 forms before you’re even considered to be on the receiving end of the deals. Wouldn’t you want to stop going to that coffee shop, even if it meant not hanging out with that group of friends?
Yeah, well your app is about 10,000x more annoying than that coffee shop with your stupid “link Facebook or google, otherwise we are going to put up a new red bubble every 1-3 hours.” And I’m honestly considering deleting it just because of that one annoying thing.
Otherwise it’s an alright app.
Can’t live without it! 5/5
I am a coach and I do all of my communication with my team, parents and other coaches with Band. It has literally saved me hundreds of hours over the years. The parents love the calendar feature for when matches and events are happening. I can send video and pictures to players so they can work on their technique. I can use it for sign ups, rsvps for events and attendance for practice. I would be lost without Band!
i love love love this app but idk how to leave bands. i joined a band i didn’t want to join and now im stuck 😔
Great for our needs - one issue 4/5
By Ramprat in Vegas
After reviewing numerous apps for doing shift trades at work - most designed for that, but corporate centered - we found BAND and it really suited our needs.
As we are a union, we were looking for something that we could communicate with each other, mostly regarding shift trading.
The only major issue we’ve noticed is a problem with iOS and the notifications. When the Quiet Mode is on and custom set to 2200-0600 instead of default, no notifications are received all day. It seems that certain other times might be okay 0000-0530 possibly - not all combinations have been tried.
Turning quiet mode either to default, or off is a “fix,” but not optimal.
If we were to add a wish list, we would like gifs in the postings and comments, instead of just the chat rooms. Possibly some adjustments to the way calendars are done and how the events could be done regarding shifts - but that would require some thinking - and it isn’t bad the way it is..
Copy and paste address location 4/5
By Doug McJonesy
It would be great if for an event, with a posted address, you could copy and paste an address.
Notices chats messages 2/5
Since March 30th I have not received any messages at all. I have deleted and reinstalled the app but still no luck. Any suggestions
It will not allow me to join or search up a band anyone know how to fix this
로그인이 되지 않습니다 1/5
By heejin tae
한국번호에서 미국번호로 바뀌면서 지역적 변동으로 로그인에 문제가 있다는 알림이 떠서 밴드에 문의, 본인확인서약서를 보내라고 하셔서 수차례 메일을 보내봤으나 [email protected]
로는 메일이 보내지지 않아 이렇게 글을 남깁니다. 도와주시면 감사하겠습니다.
Ideas for updates 4/5
By Lisa dance queen
Love it but would love for it to be able to do a couple things that I saw in a app called Team app 1. Have an option for a store to sell my team gear 2. Be able to email out the post to my team at same time.
By Theresa Giovanna
Poorly organized, chaotic, and not at all user friendly. Like all bad tech products, protect yourself and run like you would from an STD (unless you enjoy STDs or bad tech).
band app 5/5
Issues with the newest update 2/5
The last update has terminated my ability to search to join a new band, and this has caused difficulties, as there is no button for me to search for a new band.
Great.... But.... 3/5
This app is great!! I use it for school and after school clubs and such. I’ve never had problems with it until like a few weeks ago, maybe almost a month. I decided to search for a new band to join, but then it said the search wasn’t available, try again later. The next day I had the same response. And it’s been like that since up to now. The only thing is that the search area doesn’t even exist anymore on my Band app on my phone. That’s the only problem I have. Either way, great app keep up the good work.
It’s great 5/5
Its really great.👌😬👌
Excuse my language... 5/5
...BAND IS F*****G DOPE!!
I can’t share YouTube videos
They won’t let me search nothing 1/5
Each time I try and search something it says something like “sorry, can’t search rn”
i haven’t actually been able to use the app yet because of an issue. when i try to type my group in it always says that search is not available. i tried deleting the app, turning my wifi on and off, and i even downloaded it on my ipad but i still cant search things up. and solutions for this?
You will be banned for linking to Spotify 1/5
Created private group for me + 3 members of my heavy metal band. In chat a member sent a link to Spotify song. He was immediately banned from the app and his name was changed to "no name". He received an email from BAND saying he violated terms. We contacted support for details who replied w/ link to the FAQ. 3 lessons from this: (1) In an app called BAND you cannot send links to Spotify. It violates their terms. (2) There is no "support". They just send you a link to the FAQ. (3) Sometimes you do get what you pay for.
Love Band for Cub Scouts 4/5
By Gleek mom
Hey band I have a suggestion that will put you over Facebook in the mind of my fellow secretaries and historians: albums within albums. I would LOVE to see a master year album and then all the albums within that year. And then another for the next year. Hope you can make this happen!
Dumbest app ever. I can’t even sign in. It keeps saying it’s sending me a code and it never comes
Good but please fix the search bug 5/5
Please fix this search bug
Android app? 2/5
By Thankful Guy
Is this also available for Android? I have half of my team on iPhones and the other half on androids. The main reason I want to have a group message app is that we can do so across both platforms.
This app is good but the delay is annoying. It will prompt you that you have a message but it takes sometime for it to actually show once you open the app. Also a way to switch back and forth from chat to the posting board area would be nice.
Terrible organization 2/5
Post and comment notifications come from multiple sources in the app. It’s not streamlined and causes important info gets lost in the mix.
The app feels it important to notify me of other band stuff. I couldn’t care less of what it has to offer. IM IN IT FOR MY GROUP ONLY! Gtho
WOULD NOT RECOMMEND. Was forced to use it. Can’t wait to get rid of it. 2 stars because it doesn’t freeze 🤷🏻♂️
Please fix remove member 4/5
Love there app but the new update I can’t remove a member from my band. There is no options anywhere.
1 update away from 5-stars!! 3/5
I really want to love this app! Overall, I love everything about it in terms of organizing group messages with a team of 30 people. But we’ve decided not to use it because we keep getting bombarded with notifications for “stickers” and in-app purchases. The only notifications we want to receive are from our messages, the rest are pretty annoying to be blunt.
I’d be happy just pay a flat fee like most other apps to stop any advertising notifications. Otherwise, unfortunately, I’m trying to find another messaging app to use.
Virus or something 3/5
By Michael B Webb
I tried to open the app and it would not let me open it.
Not very user friendly 2/5
This app has potential but it’s not there yet. The layout is really set up for someone who plans on creating groups. Should be more designed for participants of groups.
Example - if you are in multiple groups and want to see a combined calendar, you have to click “more”, then click “my page”, then “upcoming events”. There should be a combined calendar icon from the home page. Instead their are 9 icons to create a new page. Creating new pages should be in the “more” section.
Also don’t accidentally log into one group with your Facebook login and another group with your email address. You can’t merge the profiles. I deleted one but had to get the help section to allow my phone number to be used on the remaining log in. They helped but with a snarky comment “FYI, If the same case happens again, please understand that we won't be able to help you. So, please be careful when signing up BAND.”
So far decent.. 2/5
Pretty much what I was looking for to help organize a group of enduro moto enthusiasts. I would like to suggest a couple things specifically within the messenger.
*** Messenger is super slow!!!!!
1. There is a significant delay in loading messages. When alerted to a message(s) and you open the messenger it takes a couple a while to load all the messages. I would think they would already be there since the badge indicated new messages. It is rather annoying. We were using WhatsApp and the messages were there right away.
2. Need to be able to reply to a specific previous message. You are only able to tag someone in a reply but we need to reply to a specific message up the thread. Again available in WhatsApp.
If these items were addressed I would be really loving this app.
Wont let me log in 1/5
Wont let me log in
0 star if I could
My Boutique Team love this App 5/5
I own a Lillians Hangers Resale Boutique, and I asked my team to download BAND to see if we like it, and if it could be a better way for us to communicate. Well they all loved ❤️ it...Our Favorite part is we can create polls and we all can vote on matters that are important to us. You also can customize what you would like to use the app for. Super easy to use, we love it 💗
Great, videos could be better. 3/5
I absolutely love using this app for my Dance Team announcements, BUT VIDEO LOADING NEED TO BE FIXED. My coaches post a lot of videos onto our page and all of us are required to watch them, but we can’t if they can’t load properly. Please fix this if you can.
Wish the Chat was more like What’s App 4/5
We love using What’s app for the ability to reply to specific messages and the clean and interesting interface, as well as star/save specific messages, delete messages posted by mistake, and view text in larger font as a default.
As of right now, it’s really awkward and difficult to keep up with an active convo whether or not it’s not in real time, especially true if delayed. Some of our members have copy/pasted the text they’re replying to, which gets bulky, confusing, and annoying.
Otherwise love the app and all it does! It’s getting better and better. Thanks.
