Hahaha the recent update explanation... 5/5
To the person who writes the explanation for what’s in the updates, I see you cracking jokes and I appreciate you. 😂
If you need to reverse the blackout of a date due to a last-minute, availability, you’re screwed. No music for you!
It’s only doing this to me 3/5
I love this app but lately it’s been a butt to me. Before I could see who was on the schedule for like production stuff and what songs we were playing and all that. But now it only shows me the times i have to be there & stuff. It won’t let me see anything else. And when i go to “Plans” it doesn’t show anything. Can you tell me how to fix this??? Please??
See all the services 4/5
Would be nice to see all the services on the app, not just the ones you’re scheduled for.
Does what it’s supposed to.... but.... 3/5
It’s very slow and clunky on iPhone SE. There is a solid two seconds between when I tap on a plan and when it actually appears. It’s not intended to be a replacement for planning center on a computer, but it’s not a phenomenal companion either. To it’s credit, it is reliable, just slow.
I appreciate you guys 4/5
I know you guys may not think anybody notices but I see the puns and jokes you guys make on the updates. But I notice and I appreciate it.
Funny times 5/5
Love the app!! Love the comments by creators in the updates!
Great App 5/5
Also, love the puns in the app updates. 😂🤣
Amazing App 5/5
Reliable and efficient and reliable.
Wonderful app by wonderful people 5/5
And it has always simply worked. An awesome app.
The updates are consistently one of my favorite parts about the app. They are always a helpful and the descriptions are always “uplifting and encouraging”
It’s the best out there 5/5
If you are looking to take your worship gatherings to the next level through organization PCO is the obvious fore runner in the race.
They have the most advanced software that allows you to not have to worry about the dreaded scheduling conflicts.
I have used PCO from churches as small as 100 people to over 10 000 people. It really works!
Great app, does exactly what I need for it to do. To top it off, I always look forward when there is an update - best (and punniest) update notes out there, hands down!
Although I am not on the side of editing and requesting for a plan in Services, I love this app and all it offers! Even though it’s small and may go unnoticed but I love reading through the update when one has released because it does add some humor to to just updating my apps. Love this app!
I love the new logo 5/5
I love the new logo. Keep it up with the modernized updates.
Great app and service 5/5
By Brent Billings
Plus some of the best release notes in all the App Store. 💯
Says you can now upload files, but you can’t 1/5
Still won’t let me upload files via the app like it says in the update. Or I can’t figure it out. If it’s the latter, it probably needs to be a little more clear about it
Great feature for adding attachments 4/5
The attachments feature is awesome and will definitely help our worship team! There is an issue with uploading where the app will crash when I uploaded a YouTube video link for a song.
Other than that great app, thanks for all your work!
Won’t appear as an app icon 4/5
I have an iPhone 7 and while I can access this app through an “app search” the icon will not appear in any of my pages/screens. Never had an app do this before.
It’s a good app. 4/5
I would use it to choose songs a lot more if you could sort by last date scheduled like on the website.
Not user friendly 1/5
This is the most non-intuitive app, even worse than the website. Tried to find my way back to “services” after venturing off the path... couldn’t do it. Tried changing the key of a song at the “order of service”. Can’t be done if the key isn’t already loaded in from another page. Very amateurish and clunky. Not ready for public use. I imagine all the people that have uttered curses using this app... it’s better if it hadn’t existed.
I come here for the update wit ;) thanks for putting in the hard work
Love the update notes! 5/5
By Bring back the old Passion
I love the update notes! Very witty and always worth the read.
100% amazing with one exception 4/5
This app is lovely! Does everything I need. My only complaint is the iOS widget keeps telling me I am scheduled for times that I’m not. I may or may not have shown up to a rehearsal that I didn’t need to be at. Another question: can you add push notifications reminding us when rehearsals will start? (Assuming that we’re actually scheduled for that rehearsal)
10 seconds back, 30 forward 4/5
Love PCO. But (you just had to know that was comin’)... I like getting the piano parts right, and getting my fingers used to doing what the guy on the recording is playing. At present, I can take that itsy-bitsy white dot and move it backwards to hear “that part” again. Of course, there’s no real control, and I almost always move it way too far. It would be great to be able to rewind in 10- or 15-second bits, and be able to advance in 30 second bits. That way, I can practice those piano riffs over and over again.
Also, would like to see an option to turn on or off sleep mode on the phone or tablet. I never (EVER) remember to turn off sleep mode on my phone. It could be put in as an option that we could set (Disengage Sleep Mode while using Planning Center). Just a couple of thoughts.
Love it, but recent probs 5/5
I have several accounts with different churches, so I use this app regularly. Recently, I noticed difficult in accessing services thru the back and forth arrows. They exist under Plans, but the only services available to access are two on the same date (yes two Worship sets on the same date). I’m confirmed and I have Admin rights. So not sure what’s going on. :(
Can’t paste into log-in fields 5/5
As someone who uses random character strings 30+ characters long for my passwords, not being able to paste into the password field is a non-starter for me. Please enable pasting into both the user name and password fields and I’ll happily give 5 stars. Thanks!
Here bc of the update descriptions 5/5
Clean. Efficient. Proficient. Excellent. Great platform for worship teams to utilize. And wait till you open the update messages 😏😏😏
I'm just a silly piano player, but this makes things 10 times easier on Sunday morning trying to figure out what key everything is in.
The release notes are worth it alone! 5/5
Only here for the release notes. The musical notes are fine. 😂
BEAUTIFUL ❤️❤️😍😍 5/5
I ❤️❤️❤️❤️ THIS APP!!I THINK THIS APP IS SOOO AMAZING!
•(Just the only thing wrong😉...
For some reason my phone won't let me download the app?!? Any suggestions?
THANKS FOR MAKING THIS APP IT HAS CHANGED MY LIFE! 😍😍😍
LET THE LORD BE WITH YOU!😇🙏🏼
I love the app update write ups!! 5/5
Without a doubt this is a much loved app by our church. Use it all the time and it’s a critical part of entire structure.
But what I just love are the app updates. Some of the funniest, craziest descriptions for bug fixes and improvements. I go to the App Store just to check to see if PCO was recently updated just so I can read these!
Love the Bug Fixes 5/5
I love reading the notes with the bug fixes
Love it! 5/5
I don't need this app to be fancy for me, but I have enough access to see and do everything I need Sunday morning. It works smoothly and well, every time.
oops! Time for another hilarious update!
Annnnd...675,000 oxen come thundering through!
Helpful and hilarious! 5/5
This app is very helpful for coordinating things on our church worship team. And the release notes in the update are always hilarious! God bless!!!
Awesome service y'all provide. The app store update notes make it even better.
By Tom S in Ohio
The app is only surpassed by the update notes.
five stars 5/5
just for the update notes, tbh
I give this app 5 stars but it won’t let me log in to my account so I hope you could fix that
iPhone App Needs Some Work 3/5
I have been having problems with this app since the beginning...
Need to spend some time working on how to make it work with all versions of iPhone. My app has not been working very well ever since it was updated to support the iPhone X.
By Laird of Hummingbird Manor
This is the hardest and most confusing program I have ever used. Our church, in my option, made a huge mistake in purchasing this program. I wish they discontinue using this system. And I know other churches other than my own who make the same complaints.
Calendar improvements 4/5
I love this app overall, however on the mobile version it would be extremely helpful for be able to view and click on an actual calendar for block outs. The rolling dates are hard to navigate and visualize and often will keep flipping and post incorrectly from my iPhone. I have to double check and edit them again then.
App needs improvement 4/5
We use planning Center for every one of our church services and really is a nice program. However I have one major complaint and that is as someone who is on the road all day long due to work it sure would be nice to do everything on the app that has to be done instead of using a computer. For instance like adding a YouTube link I have to go to the desktop site on my phone just to do it and for template editing and so on. Please make it to where I don’t have to sit down at a computer.
Not working 1/5
Back function not working
Keeps crashing. 3/5
By Cathleen Murphy
I love having the planning center app on my phone, but whenever I go to the people tab, the app locks up and gets stuck there. So now I can’t use the app on my phone because it always reopens to the people part and gets frozen. Please help.
Be patient with the learning curve 3/5
Once you get over the learning curve it’s a fairly nice system. Bond with the fact you’ll have to watch the tutorials before you can be effective with the app/website. Their tech support team is supper polite, responsive, but ineffective for the most part. There are minor bugs but you can get creative and find a way around them.
So many problems 1/5
First there wasn’t any where to sign up on the app. You had to go online and do it. Secondly it’s been saying that something wrong and to log back in to fix it. I haven’t been able to get rid of that screen
Work okay, but has very annoying issue 1/5
When you’re planning ahead to find a sub it kicks you out and doesn’t let you view any of the current plans since your not currently on any plans. Have to sign in on my pc browser. Very annoying. Other than that works okay. But app is totally useless until they post your next plan.
So far pretty good... 3/5
By T. Elise
My church just started using Planning Center and there have been a few glitches (to be expected when changing systems) but overall it’s going well.
One thing that our team would love is the ability for messages/notifications to be sent via SMS. Not all of our folks check email on a regular basis so a text would be super helpful. Future enhancement, maybe?
Everything else is great, but some of us have noticed when you’re practicing a song, and then pause it and switch apps to reply to a text or something, and then go back to the media player, when you hit play again, instead of resuming where you left off, it starts you back at the very top of the set 😐 kind of annoying. Please fix
(Don’t mind my punctuation)
