Does not properly alert on updates.
waste of time//glitchy 1/5
everything that is accomplished on this app can be done with a private facebook group or through text. not worth the effort. not to mention the constant notifications glitches and failing to show your messages.
Could see how it would be cool app for groups terrible for work place 1/5
If your workplace makes you download this app for work run away that means you’ll have an abusive workplace I could see how this could be a cool idea for groups but when it’s used for work it’s a horrible app
Pretty good program so far for our bible study group. 4/5
Make sure you have the age, gender, and acceptance dates set correctly for invites to your group. Otherwise it will cause errors fir new members signing up.
Terrible app! 1/5
I just downloaded the app and entered my information to access the app,verified the account and was sent to the login page. I entered my credentials and then it sends me back to the login! It did this several times and I created an account with my email. Same thing happened except this time I was told my account didn’t exist or that I tried too many times to access it and it told me to start another account.
What kind of foolery is this?!? Straight up ridiculous! The worst part is,I want to delete the accounts I created-which I can’t access because it’s telling me that I entered the wrong info or that it doesn’t exist. Someone needs to contact me about this! Bad business!
Sms please 4/5
Please add sms notifications. The one thing I would change about this app.
some things could be better 4/5
ok, so, i use band for like, school clubs and stuff, and i think it’s great. some things i wish they could add tho would be like a way to see if the other person was chatting with you, like how on iMessage it has the bubbles to show if the person is about to text you, i wish they could add that. i also which they could add more notification sounds, and also possibly a way to name people specifically for you, like if u wanna change that persons name or contact photo or put like stuff about that person just for u, but yeah. these are just things i would like, you don’t have to add them/ change them.
a person who likes your app🙂😶
An excellent communication tool 5/5
The app is a great tool for people, churches, organizations and other grouping opportunities, that need a quick and accessible way of communicating and sharing information on a broad spectrum.
Just use discord 1/5
Just use discord
Decent App 3/5
The video player on this app is HORRIBLE. Audio will work but video won’t or the opposite. Or the video won’t play all together. The layout of the app is somewhat helpful and the comment/shout system is nice! It’s kind of like a less good Facebook pages 🤷🏼♂️
Looking good so far 4/5
Everything seems to be functioning up to par with a couple of exceptions.
1: The dark mode intermittently changes to a light theme on my iPhone if I go to enlarge a post.
2: I will admit I had to repeatedly exit out of and close the app until it finally asked for permission to pull a profile pic from my gallery when I attempted to change it.
Will update review as I continue use
This App is Terrible 1/5
Your connection problems are terrible, I am so disappointed!! It does not work even when I'm in an area that has really good wifi. So disappointed, I do not and would not recommend anyone to get this app!
By rainbow girl😌
I really like this app! It is the perfect way to communicate with your team of whoever else you need to communicate with. I also like that there are tons of other groups that you can see like food, cheer, etc;). I really recommend this app and you should totally get it!!
Love it 5/5
Love it so much it’s easy to handle cheer business and all types of sports I would recommend this if on a sports team!!
Is no star an option? 1/5
By Ally Nicole 80
This app is a pain and pointless. We got it for my dance team to help us be more organized, but this app has turned us into a disorganized mess and everyone hates using it. I wish it wasn’t an app anymore so our coach would stop using it. I hate how you get so many notifications every time something happens. I get a minimum of two emails, two texts, and a notification from the app itself. I would not recommend this app to anyone and would recommend that you don’t use it for anything, all it causes is anger and confusion.
I hate that I am forced to use this cluster of an app.
Things randomly work differently, even when I take the exact same steps.
Not in any way is this easy to use.
It is good at raising my blood pressure as I struggle with it.
terrible app, some messages group members send in the groupchat don’t pop up for other group members. 0/10 wouldn’t recommend
Confusing, but usable! 4/5
I am blind and run a visually impaired group. I have been looking for a messaging platform that offers the features that band provides. While, I do enjoy the features it provides, I have found the labeling of its buttons to be confusing. The buttons are not necessarily clear as to their function and there are other buttons that are unclear as to their operations.
I REALLY love this app. The only thing i wild
Would want to have on it is more free stickers, ones like video stickers.
동영상 올리기 실패를 합니다. 1/5
분명 같은 폰으로 같은 화질 맟 설정으로 찍은 동영상이지만 불특정하게 몇몇 동영상 업로드 시도시 글 올리기 실패를 합니다.
Terrible UI 1/5
By Jamaica me crazy mon
You get a notification, you open the app and see that same, one notification, in 3 different places and sub menus. I have to open the message 3 different ways just to clear it. And it doesn't help that the things that I don't care about, mask themselves as notifications as well, such as new stickers and news. You start with one notification and immediately become overwhelmed when you open the app when you see red, unread, dots in 3 different places. The problem only gets worse when you're having multiple conversations at once. The conversation layout is unintuitive and confusing.
Can’t chromecast 1/5
By chromecast help
How do you google chromecast videos? I can’t find the option/feature to do so, thanks!
Back up old videos pics 2/5
I really wish u guys could not just automatically delete old memories. A lot of old videos I can’t even see anymore
Good app but buggy 4/5
Currently in the chat screen the top bar is white with a white arrow so you can’t see even that there is an arrow to go back.
This has been confusing a lot of the band members.
Terrible Design 1/5
It would be a solid messaging app if it didn’t constantly find ways to annoy you with ads. Would never use it if I didn’t have to. Don’t recommend it for anyone looking for a messaging app.
Too many ads 1/5
App works great but constantly spammed with ads with no option to remove them.
Wonderful for coaching! 5/5
This app allows me to place events in a calendar and it will remind my squad. I can create attendance check sheets and the girls can mark their own attendance! It helps give them ownership 💙 I also can create polls and so much more! I highly recommend!
So hard to use, even for the simple things 1/5
Of all the group chat apps I’ve been forced to use because of my kids’ activities, Band is by far the one I dislike the most. It is hard to make a comment. Text is very small and hard to read. There is no way to edit a comment once it has been made. You have to set up a new profile for every group you use. It isn’t always clear to me where my comment will end up (as a comment on the OP or as a reply to someone else’s comment (probably because the text is so small on the mobile app). Because there are so many messages from Band promoting Band, I sometimes miss messages that I should have seen first. There is no prioritization of group messages vs Band spam, so it is easy to simply dismiss notices as unimportant. Ugh!
I know this is a disjointed list of gripes, but honestly, I feel anxious and frustrated every time I have to open this app. I avoid using it as much as I am able, honestly. I wish I’d never heard of it, and can’t understand why my daughter’s gym thought this app would be a good idea. I hope they stop using it soon. It’s awful.
Amazing team app 5/5
We use this app for baseball .. it’s amazing keeps everyone connected.. easy to use . Best app ever
Small bug 4/5
Ok so first this app is great ngl I use this to communicate with my clan in an rpg game and it’s useful to call out bosses or when we need help but for some reason for the past few days my notifications been acting up.So basically whenever I get a notification I check the app and it says I have 200+ but when I open the app I only have 5.Whats up with that? And it happens all the time idk what to do so I’m confused rn
Great app for groups and teams 5/5
And a professional station managerWorking for a dance company. My dance company has minors as well as adults and this is the best app I have found together and communicate within the company.I want to thank Naver and Band app for such a great platform. I am very pleased and I highly recommend it.
Great for all groups 5/5
I am the technical media support manager at my local church. We have set up all group in the church on Band! It has been such a wonderful platform to connect people, especially during these unprecedented times. I recommend to any and all groups!
Casting Band to TV 2/5
By Printer Printer
So far I have not been able to cast the video to my TV. Too small for me to watch on my phone. I have both Apple TV and Google Chrome and cannot find anything in your app that allows me to cast the video.
Auto correct out 4/5
Auto correct is off when posting to a group. Please fix this.
What is this 1/5
Probably the least user friendly app I have ever seen. The goal is to connect with people and no matter what button I push I can't seem to find the info for the group/band I'm in. I'm pretty tech savy, I've use lots of other apps, including groupme to connect with others. I have no idea how to navigate this.
가족밴드 활용중인데 사용 참 편하고 밴드가이드가 잘 도와 좋네여
Auto correct 2/5
The app it’s self is not bad but the lack of auto correct or spell check is very frustrating please fix this feature
I only changed the administrator of my Girl Scout band because there was a leader change for the SAME troop number #45749.
ALL THE PHOTOS IN ALL ALBUMS DISAPPEARED FROM OUR Girl Scout Troop #45749.
Is there a way to recover the photos?
Please assist, there are many new DAISY and BROWNIE girls wanting to archive their experiences, projects and awards.
Video downloads not working 1/5
I have used this app for years, and usually love it! Recently the videos haven’t been downloading. I do social media posts every week from the videos and this has been very disappointing. I have emailed support without an answer back. I will look to switch to another app if this is not fixed.
Update: Downloading videos from the feed still is not working! Usually I can uninstall and install again, but that’s not working either. Please fix!
Love this app!! 4/5
Each update comes with awesome new features!! Can you please fix the tagging feature tho?! The new update took away autocorrect and notifying others when tagged in a post
Other then that, this app is great!
Customer Support 3/5
Maybe I am just missing it but I can’t find where there is any type of link to customer support if I have questions or comments. I’ve been trying to find where I can ask if there ever would be support for spell check or auto-complete. Creating a post takes longer than it should than if this standard editing tool was included.
Not Intuitve 3/5
Not an easy/intuitive app to maneuver through.
Band 🙂 5/5
By bailey wil
Band helps me communicate with my friends so I give it a five stars ⭐️
Glitchy notifications 3/5
Been using this app for almost a year now, the last few month it has been giving me false notifications. For example it will say I have 4 new messages, but when I click into the app, there are no messages or maybe just one or two, not the 4 it notifies. Also sometimes my messages don’t load right. I would have a message from person “A”, but the message will have a picture from person “B.” I have to restart the app too fix this. That issue does not happen often, but the incorrect notifications is getting annoying.
STILL NO AUTOCORRECT OR CAPS 1/5
Still no update to correct this problem. Why?! Just why?! Extremely aggravating!!! PLEASE FIX!!! Never have had any problems like this with GroupMe but unfortunately I’m stuck with this one. Looking back at older reviews this seems to have been a problem before. It seems like you would know what to do so this doesn’t keep happening.
Well Band developers you’re getting closer. Caps are back but still no autocorrect. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE FIX!!!!!
UPDATE TO UPDATE:
STILL NO AUTOCORRECT!!!! IF YOU KNOW IT’S STILL A PROBLEM WHY NOT FIX IT!!! GROUP ME HERE I COME!!!!
UPDATE TO UPDATE TO UPDATE:
LATEST UPDATE STILL DID NOT CORRECT THE AUTOCORRECT/PREDICTIVE TEXT!!!!! AGAIN YOU KNOW THIS IS AN ISSUE, PLEASE FIX!!!!
Auto correct/ spelling 3/5
I am new to the app and my biggest dislike is that auto spell check and auto correct are not a function in the app. I read that the new update has fixed that but it does not work for an original post. I do think i have seen spell check when responding to a post but not when writing one.
Not user friendly 1/5
Very difficult to navigate. Hard to find things. Not very user friendly.
I love this app! 5/5
This app helped me meet my best friends! I’m happy you made this app that helps people all over the world to connect. The only thing to fix is that the photos are super glitchy so our art is less quality
