Ratings and Reviews
Buggy is an understatement
Any company with this much revenue and this many customers should be able to create a basic working app without the incedible number of bugs this has. So flawed. I try it about 2-3 times per year, hoping they have worked out the bugs. Nope. Worse, if anything. And when you call tech support, they’re like what? Huh? Oh, well all I can see is what’s on my laptop. My response: why have a mobile app if tech support isn’t going to share the pain when there is a bug, and will report it and get it fixed. Final assessment: the only reason the app is worth downloading is to watch your stats when you are away from your laptop. The tech support guy even asked me: why would you be using your iPhone for this? I said well, why do you have a mobile app if you don’t expect me to??? I’m frequently away from my computer, therefore I use my iPhone for a lot of business.

Hi BeckyMGA. Thank you for your review of the app and the insight you provided into your experience with it. I apologize for any inconvenience while trying to use it. I would definitely love to get your feedback in front of our developers. If you could email us at social_support(at)constantcontact(dot)com with your username and any specific feedback on features you're looking for in the app I will make sure it gets in front of them. - Natalie Brownell, Social Media Manager, @CTCTHelp
WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO HAVE A FUNCTIONING APP???
Why is your app so completely useless and it has been for years! You are one of the leading email campaign companies and yet the app has no use in today’s world. Why aren’t you producing an app that does ALL the things that you can do on the computer.
I travel a lot and these days there are concerns about laptops on flights so I travel with an iPad Pro and do nearly everything on it ....except ...you guessed it Constant Contact. My store frequently requests that I send out new emails or I need to edit emails in draft form while I am traveling ......???????? App can’t do it! I would have thought this would have been addressed years ago to keep current with today’s business needs.
It makes us think we need to find a different company.
I see you have terrible reviews in this area too. Don’t you care about this issue?

Hi, We certainly care about this issue and are working on a project to address the main technological issue preventing many of the features you desire. It is complicated and time consuming but we are not ignoring the feedback. In the meantime you can create new campaigns on the app under the Create>Standard Campign. I know it has its own limitations but once you have one of these made you can edit and copy it on the phone anytime.
After the learning curve...
I’ve found Constant Contact to be fairly easy to use for my 2 different businesses. The drag and drop feature for photos is a plus for me. And starting with one template then being able to incorporate additional features to personalize the email has been beneficial.
I use the results reporting area to manage my data base. Customer service was a BIG help when we had a company move across town and I needed to remove 200+ email addresses- they walked me thru a short cut- AND I wasn’t on hold forever!!
There are more features in place, that I plan on utilizing in the future....
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
