Still My Fave App!

Nic01006

I've been using Band for over two years now for my MMO Guild and it just keeps getting better!! It makes organizing raids and keeping updated outside the game so easy! Band offers almost anything you could ask for groups and better than most social networks since it actually allows for more privacy. It's also a lot more organizational and tidy than other chat group apps. You can even have large group calls while gaming so there's no need for separate apps, Band offers almost everything!

The new "online" feature is awesome, but I would like to suggest that admins can still be able to view who is online, regardless if a person hides it from the rest of the group. I also agree with one of the other reviews that asks for a feature that allows people to see who reads comments in the chat room, which would make my previous suggestion unnecessary.

The only thing missing that would be perfect for gaming groups is the ability to add synchronized timers, but I'm not sure how complicated it would be .. but it's just a suggestion. Other than that, I wish there was a way to turn off Suggestions, but Band is awesome either way and I wouldn't use any other app for my community of gamers :)

Developer Response

Hi there Nic. Thank you for taking the time to review the app and for giving us a five-star rating. We really appreciate it. You do bring up a good point, admins (or co-admins) should be able to see who is and is not online to help monitor the Band. We also like the Read feature int he chatroom. I believe our dev team is looking into this. Thank you for the great suggestions and we'll pass them on to our dev teams. Again, we really appreciate you taking the time to give us valuable feedback and feature suggestions that would not only benefit you but your guild too :)! We'll keep working on this.

Great app/Falls slightly short

I love ALMOST everything about this app. It does have some setting that get close to what I need but not all the way there yet. I like that you can select who can comment or post. But I WISH there was a way for me to select who can view or receive comment. Like most Group Texts. The most aggravating part is the constant replies. Some people leave groups for that very reason. I would LOVE this app if there were a way for me to select that anyone could comment... but i would be the only one to get the comments. Not everyone needs to get notifications when members ask ridiculous questions or reply and unheard of hours. I would like to sensor that as a leader, but still have a way for the team to reply to me. BONUS, of this app could also have a time restriction setting for notifications allowing some of us to sleep.
DOUBLE BONUS... Allow team members to receive messages and reply... even if they don’t have the app.

Hi there. Thank you for taking the time to review the app and for giving us such great feedback! We really appreciate it love the idea. For now, we do not have anything like selecting who can get notifications but we will pass this along to our development team for them to look further into.
As for having a setting to not receive notifications for a period of time, you can use our "Do not disturb" feature. This feature can be found by going to the homepage of BAND > tap on the "More" icon (bottom right) > Select "Settings" > Select "Push Notifications" > Then select "Do Not Disturb." You can turn this on for a single time or select a repeating "Do not disturb" cycle.
As for the external user issue. As of right now we have a feature similar to that but they just cannot reply to the posts.
Here's a BAND Guide on how to use this feature: https://band.us/band/62412132/post/152
Adding comments to posts for non-members does sound like it can come in handy for users so we'll make sure to also send this over to our dev team to work on.

I can not stand this app

I have used many apps to connect with teams and organizations. This app by FAR is the most annoying and confusing app I have. First of all, I constantly am checking the app because it appears I have a notification. 90% of the time it is an offer from the “sticker” shop or a notification from the “band” guide. I am 43, I don’t need stickers to talk to my daughters coach. My time is to valuable to constantly have to check because this app is advertising. I told the coach to do emails because I refuse to respond on this app anymore. I have every setting possible set to not receive notification except for the one “band” group I am on.

On top of it the threads are super confusing. You don’t have the option to delete an old thread off you messages unless I am guessing the administrator of the band or if your the person who started the thread. The threads all look alike. It’s infuriating. Had enough. Told her to get S.I. Or huddle. At least the info huddle offers is useful, not unicorn stickers. I gave it one star only because it actually works and you can receive messages. Other than that, trash.

Hi there. You can turn these notifications from BAND off. When you're on your BAND home screen > Select the "More" tab at the bottom of your screen > Next select "Settings" right under the cog image > Once there go under the "Notifications" section and select "Customize For Each Band" > You should be on a page with all the Bands you're a part of, scroll to the bottom of the page > Select "Service Notice" > Here, tap on the toggle next to the BAND App. By selecting this you will no longer receive any push notifications from BAND. We understand the push notifications can get annoying to some but we've also received good feedback from many who enjoy getting the free stickers and event prizes. If you have any suggestions or further feedback please do not hesitate to contact us. Thank you.
