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.
I hate this app!! I do not recommend it. It is just annoying and laggy and it is hard to use! I 100% do NOT recommend this app! It is so laggy and slow and there are so MANY ADDS!!!🙄
In a smaller group, a group text is better 4/5
A group text is easily more effective in a smaller group, however I can comprehend it being useful in a larger setting.
Night mode 4/5
By Tcl assassin
Great app, very helpful for my guilds online. However would love a night mode option please.
Scam but useful sometimes 1/5
Band offers something where you invite people and get a gift card and air pods but it never says how many people, directions, or terms! We are being scammed into helping them! I will take down this review if someone can help me. Because I will continue to spread the word, 3 of my friends have left and deleted band and are telling friends in university groups to leave as well. I am very disappointed
One if not the best.. 5/5
..apps out there. The development team behind this app really outdid themselves.
Great app for gaming clans! 5/5
This app is great for gaming clans. The versatility is outstanding. I used to use Discord but it was hard to follow conversations. This app makes it easy by organizing all comments under the main subject line. Also, organizing events are a breeze. The customization of threads are also awesome. The admin controls are great as well. Overall A+++++
Good interface but stupid notifications 3/5
I like how the app works, runs smoothly, but I only want notifications for the band that I’m in, not developer notifications that no one wants to see, and I haven’t figured out how to select my notifications.
It’s good but... 2/5
I like the app, but I’m a leader for ROC. The only thing I don’t like about the app and the reason I’m giving this app 2 stars is because of that fact that there isn’t a French language. I have a few French members and they can’t fully understand English. I use this app to send out updates and alerts for the game. That is the only reason I’m giving you guys a 2 star rating. Otherwise it would be a perfect 5. If you guys add French to the language, I will gladly revise and re-rate the app.
Please fix bug in new version 3/5
By Dee monkeygrl
Seems to be a bug in the newest version that doesn’t allow you to long tap the message and choose an emotion for that message such as thumbs up, laughing, etc.
My students and I are getting a error message that does not allow us to logon. This just started happening today. It says the certificate is not authentic. Is this a glitch related to the new update?
FIX THE MAP 3/5
The app is great in every other aspect but the map isn’t accurate. It’s gotten us lost multiple times.
Awesome app for ESO Gamers & Guilds!! 5/5
Since last update several users in my band can no longer shout comments in chats!! Both iphone and android users are among those with the issue. Please help! Tia!
I use the band app for the school activities that I am currently in. This app is a great way to communicate with your peers but it is very slow. I personally use it to watch videos & these videos take ages to load & watch, sometimes I don’t end up watching the videos because it takes so long to load.
Hard to use and navigate 1/5
There are too many threads with this app. It would be sooooo much easier using a different platform. Not happy that our group switched to this!!!
Love it for work 5/5
I work at a doctors office and we use this app everyday. They post the schedule everyday and upcoming events. It helps us to communicate with our other offices easily and to share pictures too. This is my first time using this app and I think it actually does what it is supposed to do.
Latest update did not fix typos 1/5
Still not working with autocorrect and predictive text.
Frustrating update 4/5
If I had done this review 2 weeks ago, it would have gotten 5 stars. However, the last 2 updates within that time have introduced some bugs. I tried to contact customer support but it takes me to a foreign website that I cannot read. Spell check is not working in group chats. Some messages are cut off half way or do not show up at all. Liking chat comments does nothing. Please fix these things.
Broken after recent update 1/5
Please fix the autocorrect and predictive spelling. Stopped working after the last update.
[Update] Jan 1st and another update came in but it still didn’t fix this issue.
Apple Watch 5/5
Please make an app for Apple Watch’s! Otherwise this is a great app!
great app 5/5
Just one thing is can you make a way to delete comments on a post? Thanks! Highly recommended
Problems after the last update 3/5
Since the last update, autocorrect doesn’t work and I can’t see messages more than 2 lines. I’ll wait till you fix these issues then update again. Let’s get those last 2 stars, what did you say?
Good but not great 2/5
By spell check issue
Why has the new update deleted my spell check in the chat? It was a great app before this last update. Pls fix this please issue if possible
Great app! Latest update stinks 3/5
I have been using this app for a long time to coordinate a gaming community. This is the first update with a few major downfalls. Reactions and auto correct aren’t working for iOS users in our community; I’d give 5 stars if this was corrected.
Update is awful 1/5
I have been using band for years and have enjoyed it for many of my groups. This new update took away predictive spelling, autocorrect and punctuation correction. I look like an idiot when I am misspelling words wrong or forgetting to add the punctuation. Please bring it back!
All chat messages are truncated 2/5
This update has made so that every message is truncated by about half. The whole message still exists, but I can only see half of it on my screen. To see the rest, I have to copy paste it somewhere. The weird part is that this occurs if the message is short or long, so it’s not a character limit thing. Please fix.. can’t use this way.
Auto correct 1/5
The new update is horrible.....why take away auto-correct and predictive text?? Makes using the app awful.
I love this app, but..... 4/5
Is there a bug on the update? It won’t let me react to messages in chat anymore!
