Admin Access 4/5
By Admin Access
Hey, Band. Can you fix the Admin access capability? We love the app and it is enhancing our team’s communications capability. However, when I gave one other person in our chat group Admin capability, it took away mine. Can we fix this feature so that I don’t have to wait for that person to restore my Admin capability?
Needs a calendar search function 4/5
We need the ability to search for events in the calendar. There’s searching for other things, but I need to be able to find my own events I’ve scheduled and others in my group have scheduled.
Predator sending pics to 12 year old 1/5
By no more predators
I call this the secret teen dungeon of predators.
Some of your groups are very inappropriately. Safeguards have to be put in place in regards of anyone under age. This is geared towards teens but these groups are not properly monitored and there has been lots of inappropriate discussions that came through to our 12 year old. I have screenshots of inappropriate conversations and the police dept is checking the phone.
Please contact me privately and I can send you the police report to connect you with the detective. Hopefully, you will help us because I’m sure this isn’t the only girl he’s talking to in your chat rooms.
I am unable to change my profile picture 🙁 3/5

Can someone please help me?
Needs Work 2/5
This app is used by my daughter's softball team to keep the team informed but it needs work. We are unable to easily see what the edits are for existing events,the band tips are annoying, chatrooms don't serve it's purpose all members must join at the same time or else they miss out on the first chats. Overall needs work consider making an update soon. Thx
Need calendar filters! 4/5
Love everything about this app except that there’s no way to filter the calendars you can see! I run a small studio with different level classes throughout the week and would love for my members to be able to view only the classes at the level of their choosing. So if you tapped “calendars” from the menu, you would first see a list of the calendars that Admin has already created, and then you can select one or multiple to view events for.
Unless there’s already a way to do this and I’ve missed it??
Sorry to bother you, but can you help ? 3/5
By Honi (Honey)
Hello , I just got this app and I’m struggling with making a profile. Let me explain, I’ve filled out all the boxes like DOB,Gender,Phone number. But when clicking done nothing happens. Is there something I should do in order for me to go to the next tab of this app. I’m really confused if it’s my WiFi or something.
I really want to make something for my video game buddies and I thought this would be the perfect app.
I’m sorry for bothering you knowing you’re working really hard for this app. If you have a chance to respond would be helpful for me to understand.
Great App but wrong time zone 3/5
We use this app for Our dance company in California and all our events will only post as EST not PST....
Walking Dumpster Fire 1/5
First, basic problem, no dark theme. It's 20XX Google has done the research of how much battery it saves and numerous other places have shown for many more years how much easier it is on the eyes at night. That's one star off.
Two, lacks basic responsiveness. It is 1 to 1.5 seconds to update the pages from previous run to current. So let's say I reopen the app and was in a chat or on a chats page that's one and a half seconds to even see it update to current to show what I already see via notifications. I have three chats. This is abysmal compared to similar apps. I'm running an xs max, this is simply unacceptably slow. I'm taking two stars off for this.
Three, no app exists in a vacuum. The desktop app is even worse for windows and the website isn't much better. Im taking a star off for this as a platform.
Four, in violation of the email address specifications, they don't allow plus signs in account email addresses on any platform. This is especially annoying as it prevents usage of Google's routing protocol using the plus sign or any legitimate email address with a plus sign. I'm taking another star off for this because it's a personal crusade of mine and it deeply vexes me as a developer and as a consumer.
Fifth, although that all would be a zero star, I'm actually giving them a star back. Why? Because their notification control granularity is actually impressive. Specifically, it allows pretty fine grained internal control for each chat over banner and badge notifications independently and for what you get notifications from.
Urgh VIDEOS! 3/5
By Kimberly 9625
The band app is great for everything BUT VIDEOS. I wonder how long it will take to fix this terrible issue, as this is one of the main reasons I even use the app.
Not a fan - confusing and annoying 2/5
Disclaimer: I’m not a significant social media user, so please take my comments accordingly.
I don’t usually post negative reviews, I try to be positive on most things and realize I’m not the targeted user. This review is intended for the group leader that is considering the app - know your group and its needs. Make sure you’re not going to alienate your group by using this complex and rather annoying group communication app.
This app has too many confusing interfaces and methods of conveying information. I am forced to use this app because the group I’m involved with uses it, against my recommendation. I am involved with three of other groups that use a competitor app that I won’t name but is far superior. Again, I’m not a major or savvy social media user, and maybe that’s the problem. For the sophisticated user, this app may be nice. It isn’t for those that just need basic calendaring and group texting/communication.
The app pushes entirely too many adverts for itself and tips on how to use it. I note that if your app has to send that many reminders or tips or training, maybe you’re doing it wrong.
I loathe anytime I get a notice from Band because it means I have to try and figure out what and where the possible important information is for my group. Half the time it’s from Band and I can’t shut their stuff off. I can’t even fathom having to use it for more than one group. Cynically, I would just get a dumb phone and use that as my excuse to not use the app.
I wish the Band developers and owners luck, I do hope you succeed despite my criticisms.
Way too much going on. Way too much work for the basic info I need about our team. Useless notifications.
Change password 1/5
I’m currently unable to log into my account. When I click “change password”, and then I type in my phone number, it tells me “password is invalid”... I never typed my password, I’m trying to change it!
I submitted a request online for help, and the automated response email said it may take up to 3 days for me to get a response. How can BAND be a communication tool when it’s going to take me 3 days to get any help?!? I’m the leader of my group, how am I supposed to communicate with my members if no one can help me for 3 days?!?
Overall good app 4/5
By ANGRY NARWHAL
Experience a few technical issues every now and then, but overall this app is a great way to keep groups connected. I use this band for three different groups that I am a part of and it fits to all of their needs. Also the messaging feature is very helpful to keep in contact with specific members of the groups.
Currently working great! 👍🏻 5/5
Update: the latest update seems to have fixed the glitches, everything has been working great!
What’s going on? This app used to work fine but for about a week now it’s just plain awful! 😩
“Your request has timed out” 1/5
I received a notification from the app and when I clicked to view it, it did nothing but show me the continuously spinning timer icon, then it timed out and the notification disappeared, so I never got to see it. It just simply disappeared. Then I tried clicking on other links to redirect me to other pages and still, nothing. I am even unable to edit my settings because all my “requests are timing out.” I tried refreshing the app, but that didn’t work either. This app will not allow me to do anything at all. It’s junk. It’s useless. I’d have better luck just creating a group chat in Facebook messenger or on my phone.
Not the worst out there 3/5
If you need a communication app for your organization you could do worse. However if you choose Band you will be bombarded with notifications about new features you will never use and ridiculous “shouts” from members who think that type of silly social media communication is necessary. Bottom line: effective but annoying.
Bummed Out! 1/5
I just did the update and now it keeps going “The request has timed out!” It’s really irritating because I can’t do anything! Very dissatisfied and disappointed!
Sign up 1/5
Your app doesn’t allow me to sign up. I tried to sign with emails, phone numbers and Facebook. Absolutely nothing. Just loading and session times out.
Is BAND DOWN? 5/5
Can someone please reply and let me know if the band is down? It is not working for any of my members and myself as the administrator. Please let me know.
Keeps “timing out request” 1/5
How am I supposed to use the app if it wont let me even log into it?

The band app is not letting me in 1/5
Everyone time I try to get in the app it keeps time out or error I trued deleteing and download and that didn’t work I hope it get fixed
You request has timed out 1/5
I am experiencing the same issue as a lot of people. Every time I try to open something it only shows the loading icon and ends up saying that my request has timed out. I have deleted and reinstalled the app to see if that fixed anything, and now its not even letting me log in for the same reason. I’ve tried logging in with different devices as well and still no luck. I really have to log in, could you please fix this as soon as possible?
Not working 2/5
Why is it not working at all or letting me login
Great app but I need help!! 4/5
Been loving the app! It really helps organize my dance team but for some reason I’ve recently opened the app, gone into my group that I only is the Admin and nothing except the cover photo will load!! Nothing is loading! I’ve tried rebooting my phone , closed the app completely and reopened it and still nothing! Is there anything that can be done to fix it , I have a lot of info on it that is important??
Possible Bug Issue 5/5
Currently I’m having trouble accessing Band. It will open, but sometimes it loads but won’t clear once I’ve read my notifications and sometimes it won’t load anything at all. Hope it’s fixed soon
Won’t let my group post pictures which is essential because we need to exchange promo material for our events to each through band.
Not connecting 1/5
Recently the app has not been connecting. Keeps saying, “The request has timed out.” Any ideas what is going on?
Is the app down? 5/5
By Ben orozco
What’s going on with the app ? Crash every time I open the app !!! Please answer??
What’s going on with the app....is it just down for the day?? 1/5
What’s going on with the app....is it just down for the day?? If so it would be nice to send that communication out since a lot of teams rely on this as their main source of communication. No one has been able to log in for hours!
App not working 2/5
I have LOVED this app but it’s been timing out and I can’t access anything on it. I use it for my cheer team and REALLY rely on this to give them videos of their material and if this isn’t fixed today I will have to use something else and say goodbye to BAND. Please resolve this as soon as you can.
Estoy enojado 1/5
La app no me cargaba como si no tuviera internet, pero todas las otras apps de mi celular si funcionan, entonces decidí eliminar y descargar la app otra vez y ahora ni siquiera entra a mi cuenta😡
I love this app! 4/5
I’ve been using this app for a really long time, and I probably use it more than iMessages or any other social media. One thing, though, I wish the chat rooms would be worked on a bit more, because I’m always finding small glitches here and there. They’re usually fixed with the next update, but with that one there come more. Of course, I’m very nit picky and can’t judge. The number one glitch is when it was trouble loading messages, and just doesn’t tell me. Or when it doesn’t load notifications or feed from a specific Band. Other than that, though, it’s a fantastic app.
New update problems 3/5
Love the app, but A lot of people are having problems and complaining with this new update. Really buggy and lagging. Really slow on uploading posts and also in chats. I deleted the app and downloaded it again now I can’t get back in at all! Please fix this!
The latest update has caused me to not be able to use my app at all! Please fix this!!!
Why can’t I log in 2/5
It logged me out and now every time I try to log in it says timed out
Constantly Times Out 2/5
We use this for our business teams to communicate which is great, but ever since the new Apple software update I can’t sign in, constantly times out when trying to sign in, if you request a new password “unknown” errors keep occurring, and the band homepage of our group won’t load to show all of our previous posts/photos. Please help!
Won’t let me log in 3/5
The newest update to BAND wouldn’t load anything. I thought there was an issue with my iPhone so I uninstalled the app then reinstalled it. Restarted my phone too. Now it won’t let me log in. Keeps timing out. Other members in my daughters Girl Scout troop are having the same issues.
App down 1/5
The app has been down all day 6/7/19
App crashed. 5/5
I’ve had band and use it all
The time and I love it. But it crashed today and now I can’t get it to work. I’ve deleted it and reinstalled it and it still won’t work.
The app won’t load 2/5
The app won’t load and I need to practice my cheer dances that I can only access through the app. The app keeps saying that the request timed out and that a problem occurred. I’m connected to internet and everything and nothing is working. Help
Every time you put out an update the app stops working until I uninstall and reinstall it. This time it won’t connect at all says the software is terminated the connection. 😡
App is down and App support is not in English! 1/5
Tried app support and none is in English, site and app not working. So many errors. And can’t find any answers as to what’s going on. ???
Slow and non operational at times 1/5
I try to use the app at certain points in the day with good WiFi and cellular service and it is still slow and non functioning. I tried deleting the app and logging in again and it wouldn’t let me log in. It kept timing out and I wasn’t able to access the app. This app is horrible and I wouldn’t recommend it to those who are looking to communicate with a large sum of people via work or an organization.
Hey developer team...👋🏻 2/5
I have an iPhone 8+ and the highest WiFi connection possible and this thing has been doing nothing but timing out all day today. None of my other apps ain’t use on my phone are ha omg issues. Nothing is working. I rebooted my phone, cleared cache. Nada. It was fine a few days ago but what’s the use of the app if I can’t connect to my team when it keeps timing out? 🤷🏻♀️
Help please 5/5
By Shester P
Hello! I tried clicking App Support, but it was in a different language. I also can’t find your twitter account anywhere. It says your servers are up but me and the people in my band can’t log into our band. We’d really like some help please. (Always has been perfect until now. Best app I’ve ever used for communicating out to a group)
Band, what happened. 1/5
The app has been extremely slow, I’m not able to post pics, the chat feed is moving at a snails pace, I cannot access the feed at all nor can I view any received shouts. Everyone in the app seems to be experiencing similar issues. My rating was 5 stars, at this rate I’d give it a 1.
App does not work 1/5
App just stopped working
