Could be better 1/5
There are way too many ads, ads that no one reads or cares about and there’s no way for them to stop bugging in the app.
The age limiter for groups was very poorly thought out. You added birth years instead of actual age years. so if I have my minimum age to 16yo, every year, I have to go back into the settings to change it to make sure that the next 16yo can join. otherwise, if I leave the birth year, eventually the minimum age will be 20yo, or 30yo. What idiot came up with this idea?
Love the app 5/5

I love the app but I wish there was a widget for iPhones
Too many annoying notifications 3/5
It's a pretty good group messaging app. It doesn't do much that competitors like GroupMe don't also do, but it doesn't fall behind anywhere either. The only major difference is that GroupMe and others don't feel the need to bombard the user with pointless notifications. Every couple days or so Band will send a notification with no real substance, obviously just trying to get the user to open the app. The worst part is that you can't turn notifications off or else you'll risk missing important messages from your groups. Very annoying and would never recommend this app while it still does this.

As always, people are always misgendered, so if we could have a slot for pronouns(like Instagram) it would make it easier and more normalized across most platforms. It could be very helpful to people struggling and help them fee safer and happy with their programs and teams. Thank you!!
Errors out 1/5
I can’t login to the app. As soon as it opens I get an error message. I’ve tried it over several days, deleted the app and re-downloaded, still get the same error.
12+ it said I’m twelve and it’s making me do kids
Live Streaming 4/5
June 9 , our live stream was posted and by Thursday it disappeared. Then June 13, our worship service video was jot there, however you can hear the members speaking. #help. We have updated the app.
Absolute joke 1/5
I can’t even login to the app. I have tried every single method for logging on, and NOTHING WORKS.
I just want band 3/5
Hi there! So I haven’t used the app yet, but my sisters have. They say it’s great and they love it, and they like using it for the friend groups since some of their friends have different type phones. Now I wanted it for the same reason, so I got the app and tried setting it up, I put in my birthday and once I did everything it said get the kids band! Even tho I’m 12, and there’s no way to say no thanks. All I wanted was to be able to use this app with my friends
I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE band! I set my account up today and have literally not stopped using it! I love the calendar feature especially, it’s really nice, and I especially love how you can see when people are online. One suggestion would be that you should make it on the chat so that there’s typing bubbles, it kinda bugs me that I can’t see when people are typing. But that would be it. This is probably my favorite app and deserves way more than 5 stars, although still, I don’t like the whole kids band thing, it’s nice that you made that for people but I wish you could get normal band even if your under 13. Just a simple no thanks option would be great.
Error every time 1/5
This app never functions properly for me. I’ll get a notification from the app then go into the app to read it and it will continuously say “sorry, an unknown error just occurred”. It doesn’t matter what I click on. It continues to give the same message.
Great app! I loved using in school 😀
This app 1/5
Great app. I would strongly recommend downloading it immediately!
Doesn’t work 1/5
I have an iPhone 11 Pro and this app is only online about 10% of the time when I open it (seems to ONLY be when there is a VERY STRONG WiFi connection). The rest of the time it says ‘internet connection appears to be offline’ and it has cost me receiving important notifications regarding my child’s whereabouts. VERY VERY ANNOYING!
Why have it if I can’t sign up? 1/5
I have to have this app for a school volleyball thing over the summer. It won’t even let me sign up. It keeps telling me to get band for kids. Can someone help me?
Every time I want to see a message somebody had same it says “You’ll need to download the most current version of band” and I don’t know what to do.
Tagging in posts not working correctly 5/5
When posting and tagging anyone, the tag has to be done last. If not and if done while writing and you have to go back, the tag is removed. Please remedy. Thanks
A good app 5/5
I’ve used this app for a while now and it helps out our teams, idk what we would be using other then this but it is very organized and I would recommend it to anyone for any sort of team.
Where is the roster? 1/5
How can you promote an app for kids sports teams and not provide the functionality to have a roster to include each player’s name, number, photo, etc ? Team Snap and many others so much better.
Folders within folders 5/5
I love the Band App. But I was hoping to see a feature where you can create a folder within a folder for better organization of files. I think this will be awesome to have.
Love this app 5/5
By boss lady Libby
First time using this app and I really like it ! It’s easy to use and understand! Some of the other apps I have had ,are very difficult to get in to ,and very hard to understand! I so recommend downloading this app for anyone and all groups!!!
Videos need to stop freezing 2/5
I have promoted Band to all of my kids groups because the organization abilities and management aspects of the app are great. I love the separate groups within a main group so I can get info that only pertains to my child but after 2+ years I still can’t watch an entire posted video without it freezing. It isn’t an internet issue. It’s an app issue. Many parents complain because students can’t practice if they can’t view the videos. I try to download them but I never know if a download has started so either end up with no download or multiple of the same. It’s frustrating and I end up not even bothering to try viewing anymore.
Great but it’s the little things 3/5
Let me just say that I love Band, all the features are wonderful for my volunteer team that uses it for communication, meetings, and up to date information.
However, some of my team members are older and some hard of hearing. All notification sounds included in band (known as Default 1, Default 2, etc) are too quiet, and too short in duration for them to hear. I have asked twice now for either longer louder sounds or the ability to add custom alternate sounds. The response I got was basically “we will see”. I can’t believe this is hard to do given the scope of all these wonderful enhancements in the latest release this seems like a nothing. Please prioritize!
Awful video player 3/5
It’s been trash for video for years. Wish we didn’t use it
It’s alright 3/5
By keysha spanier
It would be nice to be able to see who reads your post
The app constantly freezes 2/5
By app malfuction
I have updated my phone and when I play the video back it constantly freezes. And my computer is no better. I have contacted my cable company to check my wifi and all is good there. I have been told its your app with the bug. Please help
Not grate 4/5
It gives to many notifications like every time you open it it will have 5-10 of them but all around it is good
I hate notifications for stupid things 1/5
Please stop giving my notifications for dumb things like ads or tips. I only want to see pop ups or banners or Icon badges for actual activities from real people in my band. I hate hate hate all the pop ups!
Trouble with uploading 3/5
It’s almost impossible to upload videos. I’ve been trying to upload the same video for 3 days.
It’s alright 2/5
My team and I use this app but it gets frustrating when trying to post videos and they take forever to load after failing a few times!
It’s ok 3/5
By Husky owl
It’s fine, just wish Band App would stop sending messages.
this app has times where it genuinely just doesn’t not work, playback with videos is especially bad.
Love the app BUT! 4/5
Everything about this app is perfect for my needs as a replacement for FB groups.
My students have to upload short homework videos to BAND. Unfortunately, playback of these videos has been loaded with issues.
Bring back moot 1/5
Pls bring back the old moot i do not like the new where you post in band for moot no one finds it and its hard
Just when I thought I couldn’t be more impressed 5/5
By Shester P
This new update with the survey was the confirmation that I needed to know that you guys were actually reading my mind. This app DELIVERS when it comes to helping a group with communication. And if there’s something you’re missing? Shoot them the suggestion! Chances are high, they are already working on it themselves. Amazing app and I can’t stop bragging about it!
Best app ever for coaches 5/5
The BAND APP has absolutely everything a coach needs for their team. Scheduling, live streaming events, the ability to post team material and updates, chat and sub group chat for athletes and parents etc.... If you ever wished you could find one app for all of your team communication, it’s here.
I’ve been using band for the last 2 years and it’s hands down the best team app out there. If you have a problem with the app, the customer service staff is on it quickly to fix it, and if you have suggestions for improvements, the developers are on that quickly also. Thanks BAND for making my life easier.
Can’t view who have read chat messages 4/5
By VRC admin
I’m the tech admin of our church and just started trying Band as our church has a need to switch from FB Messenger. So far we think Band is very good and pretty useful for what we need, except 1 feature we really need that Band doesn’t have: We can’t view who has read messages in chat rooms. We can see how many have read, but not who. You can see this in posts, but only in original posts. Once people reply/comment on a post, others in the group can’t see who have read the comments. The read status is a really important feature for us that we’ve been enjoying on FB Messenger. Would’ve given 5 stars if this feature were there.
Buggy, keeps hanging 3/5
I’ve been using the van app for the last four years with my children’s dance studio and it has been fantastic however as of late it keeps hanging all the time. Don’t know if this is related to the latest update but it really makes it hard to use the app.
Group loving it so far 5/5
Been using Band for my homeschool co-op for a few years. It’s absolutely lovey! Thank you! It’s everything we need. If I could suggest, we would LOVE to see an update where you can read past posts in a chat if you joined late. (Or an option to turn that feature on) That would be so, SO helpful. Thank you!
Newest Update 4/5
With the most recent update 2/15/21, my team and I are no longer able to film using Flip Mode when in Selfie mode for filming. It shows up flipped on our end but not on the customer/viewers end.
We love this app and it’s been amazing for us during COVID, so we would love if this was fixed.
Location tracking on at all times 1/5
this app tracks your location at all times not general but PRECISE location even when app is not open ICK! Drains battery life too
Can’t get on 1/5
By Lovin my Latte ♥️
It’s saying that my email is invalid. Safari can not open and unable to use your app
Pauses randomly 2/5
By dan TDN
Well. The title explains it all
Actually works pretty well 5/5
I am a staff member of the largest art centered group on the App. I have been using the app for what will be a year in June, and I really have no issues with it. I’ve made amazing friends, and the user interface is fine. Most of the people on this claiming the user interface is “bad” or that they have trouble, really have NO idea what they are doing. Their problems are easily solved. The BAND team is helpful and helps us with art contest prizes. I think they’re doing pretty well.
요즘 밴드가 왜 이러는지 1/5
이유 없이 느려지고 채팅방 접속도 안 되고.... 몇 번씩 자기 혼자 꺼지고 진짜 속 터져 죽습니다 서버 문제인지 앱 자체가 문제인지 알 수도 없고 제발 좀 고쳐주세요 구닥다리 폰도 아닌데 ㅠ
✨band app✨ 5/5
It’s pretty cool 10/10 would recommend
By A Swimmers Review
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.
