  • Your app doesn’t work and I can’t get through to anyone in customer support 1/5

    By EdricB
    It’s not functioning. Won’t let me in. I deleted the app and tried to re-install and I’ve been trying to get in to my account since 8 a.m.
  • Great app, but needs one fix 5/5

    By MichaelTheGamer
    This app so far has been be great! I’m glad there’s an app where my directors can post announcements without a problem. Anyways, there’s one problem. Whenever someone sends a video, it doesn’t play, and buffers a lot, or it either takes a very long time to play. Saving the video and watching it used to be the solution, but now that doesn’t work. I don’t really know if this has been an issue for other people, but please try to find a way to fix the bug if that’s the case. Thank you!
  • Version History? 1/5

    By 5drumsweeps
    Update every 2 days?! Edit 1/28/22 in response to the Developer: Yes the app updates DAILY check your version history which reveals that. I update the app yesterday morning and less than 24hrs later another update this morning. 6/5/22 - Updates still every 2 days, this app is just one bloated mess. 6/7/22 - In response to the developer you’re aware of the issues for the 4th time, your scripted response is not warranting yet we’ll get another update later today to continue the bloat.
  • It would be cool to use but 1/5

    By Sad Percussionist
    I can’t seem to get it to work. Every time I try to use anything it says that there is an SSL error and that there is not a secure connection. My brother tried using it on his phone (which was pretty out dated) and it worked perfectly for him. I wish I could figure out how to fix this. Wink wink*
  • AH-MAZING!!!! 5/5

    By NoneoftheNamesIWant
    I’ve been looking for something that can do many of the capabilities that BAND has to manage the youth that I serve and just like that, I came across BAND. I have grown to love it so so so much! The only thing I wish it had was forums and maybe groups within each BAND. If you all could do that, you’ve got me forever. Otherwise, considering it is a free app, it gets a solid 5! It’s gets no better than that. They give a lot in exchange for a free download so BAND, know that you are appreciated and that I’d advocate for you ANY DAY! With this new payment option, that gives even more hope and excitement for what else there is to come. Thank you!! Keep being great!
  • It’s giving meh 2/5

    By Lynz1516
    It’s nice but there are so many glitches all the time and it doesn’t matter how much I update the app, the bugs are never fixed. Even when I got a new phone the bugs still weren’t fixed. Might as well just make a private instagram to communicate with sports families. I think the most annoying bug is whenever there’s ONE notification it somehow registers as 30 and gives me notifications from a year ago that have nothing to do with anything.
  • Great app! Missing a feature 4/5

    By Ale_Pza
    I love the band app, however I haven't found the split payment option, has it been removed?
  • App won’t even allow me to search for my group 1/5

    By NaomiFL12
    Brand new iPhone 11 & the app was downloaded this week. I’ve checked several times for updates but there’s nothing. Keep getting unknown error message and can’t search for a group.
  • Notifications 2/5

    By clbourret
    Seriously need an option to turn off notifications for specific posts!
  • Can't Access The App 2/5

    By Chemistryart41
    I can't access the app at all! Every time I login, it sends me back to the login page. Even when i refresh, clear cache, redownload the app, no matter what i try I can't login to the app, so i have to go to the website to login. Idk if anyone else is having the same problem as me or what, but dealing with this is crazy. Please send help! Why is this happening and how do I stop it and prevent it from happening again?
  • Horrible way to share with the families 1/5

    By Masilsan
    you send a link they have to download install a app to see your son/ daughter and after all the hustle the app doesn’t work just waist off time and patience hughh!
  • Convoluted, Inflexible Features 2/5

    By NorthBeachJedi
    1. Convoluted: When I delete my posts, why would you assume I only want to delete it from just MY screen? Take that option off of there. It just gets in the way, and is stupid. 2. Inflexible: There is NO option to edit our posts in the drop down menu. Currently, we have to delete the entire post even if it’s to correct one or two words. That’s ridiculous. Address these issues, and you’ll get 5 stars from me.
  • Slow updating 4/5

    By CiiSiiRamirez
    The app is great EXCEPT it’s slow to update/refresh. I know there’s more notifications and shouts but I have to refresh and restart the app a bunch of times for them to actually show up. It’s just a nuisance.
  • Help 3/5

    By chay wick
    I can not get the updated that it says I need so I can’t see any chats
  • Buggy and useless 1/5

    By jean938372629405
    I have an iPhone 13 mini with the most up to date version of this app for months now and yet I’ve had to delete the app and redownload it almost once a week to get my chats to update. I’m constantly getting a “request timed out” pop up and can’t see new messages IN chats but show on the main chat organizing list so I know there have to have been new messages received - The chats just don’t update so can’t see them. Support has been unhelpful and constantly asks for supporting images - which I supply - and they still can’t fix the problem.
  • Event Calendar doesn’t make sense 3/5

    By Sincerely Jane Doe
    I like Band fine, but I get an error message that tells me that events can last no longer than 30 days every time I try to schedule one. Why??? Is there something in settings I need to change? Does Band not know how to make the calendar allow 30+ day events? Why would Band even care how long my events last?
  • K soo 5/5

    By XxAesthetic_FlowerxX
    Hi u guys sooo I love BAND! I helps me a lot with my ballet stuff and it’s awesome soo you guys I give 5 star raitng!
  • Just Okay 3/5

    By ChaTyHay
    Picture in Picture keeps crashing which becomes bothersome after awhile, and full screen video isn’t truly full screen
  • New update is worse 2/5

    By Velvetessence
    I now can no longer open up chat messages. It shows I have a notification and it gives me a brief summary but when I click on the chat it’s blank and tells me to update to the latest version yet I have the latest version.
  • Not good 1/5

    By 472unhappyuser
    It’s got some great features but it’s performance is just poor. Videos take forever to load. To download videos is nearly impossible. A slow moving app is one thing but we should not have to mess around with it for an hour just to download one 2 minutes video. I’d even be willing to pay for it to support a version that works. Unfortunately no other apps on the market quite the same so we’re stuck with it.
  • Dance review 5/5

    By connor wentz
    Love the app I use it for dance so good has a lot of features that we all use
  • Why can’t I use it 2/5

    By pickel nuggets
    My band uses it for most updates but it’s blocked on school WiFi but when I try to use data it says that I can’t. But it’s how our band updates is on everything. Please make it where it will work on data. Other than that it’s great and works for the purpose we need.
  • New update/opinions 4/5

    By Thunder #5
    This app has been the lifeline of the art programs I’m in but please. Fix the dark mode update. Wonderful app I just like my dark mode.
  • Not a good app 1/5

    By Random nickname 1527526
    In fact it’s awful. The layout is confusing and not intuitive, one can’t find anything. Every tab winds up being a callout tab instead of just a new tab so it’s annoying to try to navigate around. There are far better choices for kids sports team apps.
  • Works well for our scouting 5/5

    By airman06
    This app has made communication and planning simple and effective. We use calendar, messaging, and live stream to include those who were not able to join our events. Great app.
  • Notifications delay 3/5

    By Ewebecha
    I really want to love this app. It offers all the functions I’d want for our organization. The developers seem to be making improvements, listening to feedback. But the notification system is often delayed. By days. Yes, all my notifications are turned on in the app and on my phone settings. I do receive some notifications quickly. And some not so much. This needs to be reliable and consistent! And then there is the 89 different options for notifications. This really needs to be simplified. Request: please add an option to be able to require an email or phone number to join a group (along side the membership request question option). Separate from the “email verification”.
  • Used for work 5/5

    By Lynnmm129
    Needs to have a option to send a link to a email as well
  • Alright BAND. We got a problem. 4/5

    By Villains Forever
    Everything is great on here, the thing is we have a lot of perverts and pedophiles on this app now and there’s not exactly a way to prevent it. I have been majorly harassed not once, not twice, but THREE times, and not to mention, a few other times. My friends get sexual texts from people and it makes them uncomfortable. I’m not saying it’s an immediate way to solve this but is there a way to prevent this problem?
  • Notification is unreliable 3/5

    By BillyBobSing
    Push notifications on for all posts and I got no notification of a school delay posted by the principal.
  • Do Not Like 1/5

    By palm750
    Parents who are not computer literate would have a hard time using Band. It would be nice to be informed by mail or email about important events like PT conferences.
  • Hate Band 1/5

    By AliJ5k
    I hate the Band app. It is so slow! Our teams use Band to review routines and we never can watch the videos. It’s constantly thinking. WiFi on, WiFi off, full cell bars, it doesn’t matter, it doesn’t work. Also, everything gets buried beneath member’s liking comments. I can’t find the important notifications. Can’t turn off “likes”. It’s also difficult to download photos/videos/links. It needs to be clearer on how to operate the app. GroupMe works so much better!
  • Horrible for Sending Photos and Videos 2/5

    By landry.dreith
    I have used Band for the last two years with a dance team and it is by far one of the worst communication apps I have used. We use band mainly for sending videos of our performances and teaching material and almost everyone in the group has trouble playing the videos and saving them to their device. All types of phones, carriers, and wi-fi strengths have been used and everyone has the same issue. If a video does play, there is a lot of buffering and it is very long. I do not recommend using Band if you have a lot of video and/or photos that you have to share with the group.
  • Slow to load, quick to notify 3/5

    By Serge717
    The app will notify you of something faster than actually downloading the content of that data and having it ready for you once you open the app. This makes it very annoying. Most times I will get a notification on my phone that I got a message in one of my chats but it won’t load it into the app till you open it. Sometimes it won’t even load till I back out of the chat and then open the chat again. File uploading is clunky. No good desktop support. App itself isn’t optimized for speed seems like.
  • Review 👎🏻 1/5

    By mom4sports
    Pain to use. After 2 years still a pain. Hate all the ads.
  • Huh 2/5

    By Bob Ezra
    It’s rlly annoying to get around, not hard, just annoying.
  • Would be great if it worked 2/5

    By Piopigffc
    It is a great concept and has lots of cool features… but never loads well enough to work. My team uses a google drive to share videos photos and calendar and it loads way faster and better quality.
  • Great App 4/5

    By FrustratedMusicTeacher
    I genuinely enjoy this app because it makes communication and organization for large groups easy. But I am super frustrated that I cannot use it on my 2020 MacBook Pro because it doesn’t have an M1 chip. I do a ton of work on my computer and being able to edit and do stuff on the app on my Mac would make life so much easier.
  • Thank you Band! 5/5

    By Andi Reese
    I have had the Band app for a couple of years now. Initially I started using it for my fitness classes to keep my students up to date with last minute cancellations. In 2020 when we were unable to have classes in person I was able to easily livestream classes, and continued for about 6 months even after we got back to the in-person classes for those who were not comfortable coming back right away. We still use the app for class schedules and announcements and it is our primary app for this purpose. I enjoy the different groups and the newsfeed and have recently made a Band group for my family since I am not on any other social media.
  • No sound on video 3/5

    By kickin at 62
    Every 4 to 6 weeks my video to my students has no sound on it. I have no idea why. I have written in to the help center a handful of times in the past year and a half. If it weren’t for this I would have no issues with the app.
  • App notifications 1/5

    By ihccdcsetyhhjkoutfcb
    Band sends notifications for their own services that can’t be turned off. This creates notification fatigue and makes the important notifications from my groups easy to miss. Extremely obnoxious.
  • Almost there. 3/5

    By Kidkerry
    Posting pictures from MY PHONE is all messed up. When I try to post a picture I might get a prompt to hit to access my phones albums. Key word is “might”. Mostly I’m directed to recent album photos posted. Fix this and I’m all in for 5 stars.
  • Terrible 3/5

    By 12another34
    For some reason I have trouble with the app when I’m on WI-FI. Nothing updates n messages won’t go through
  • Need to transfer emails easier 3/5

    By mamalauna
    Adding to folders, having to use Dropbox or file under documents limits, communication organization, maybe I haven’t figured it out yet?But wen you are on several boards, sports teams and need to folder, and store communication, it’s not super clear?
  • Band App 5/5

    By Parade Corps
    It is important that even small groups are able to communicate as needed. I have been a coach for over 50 Years and the band app helps get it done without having to make numerous phone calls, text messages or handing out paper that often gets misplaced We are able to reach members easily and in a timely manner with the band app Thank you Band App
  • Don’t like the update 3/5

    By CountryWesternDJ
    It’s hard to see the icons at the bottom. They made them so small.
  • App problem 4/5

    By sldinnes
    Unable to use app due to “timed out issues” can’t report the problem either. ??
  • Great App For Our Wrestling Team 4/5

    By øn1
    love it and it keeps everyone in contact so no one goes missing
  • App not working/Update created more bugs 2/5

    By Bdanzy
    I can't log in, and every time I attempt, I cannot get past the error message. I've already updated the app and my iPhone to the newest iOS update. Before writing this review, I thought that maybe hitting the support button in the app store might help. It took me to a page that was in Chinese. I unfortunately never took the time to learn another language after French in high school. The website doesn't load entirely either. That's my two cents.
  • Still get dots for service and band guide. 3/5

    By ws an de rs do tn et
    Even if you turn notifications completely off, app still shows dot for spam from band guide, etc.
