Convenient and easy to use

I appreciate the convenience of Realm access on my phone. I use it every week to mark worship attendance, and our small group leaders mark weekly group attendance as well. The app is also great when I want to get a quick word out to the community, and I like having the ability to post a photo with the announcement. It helps a lot when it comes to lost & found items!

My only gripe is that occasionally I have to delete and re-download the app before changes made in the system will register in the app. And also sometimes the notifications badge stays on after I’ve opened and read all messages. No big deal! Overall, Realm Connect is a great app and ACSTechnologies is a wonderful partner in ministry.

Mostly There

I really enjoy the Realm ecosystem and I’m so thankful that there’s an app like this that helps build and maintain a community.

A few meaningful updates would be INCREDIBLE:
- Better local database storage of posts and events: the app continuously needing to reach APIs for data that’s easily stored for rapid recall is frustrating

- Include admin functions in this app instead of deferring to the web app. This would be HUGE for helping community members without having to switch between the app and a browser

-The chat functionality seems flip-flopped. I might be the only one, but the I rarely get updates to my Inbox but always have chats updating. Even just having the option to specify tab order in the chat section would be helpful.

I LOVE Realm and think it’s a wonderful resource. Thank you for everything you’ve done thus far! I’m excited to see what else you all implement in the future!

It’s value is limited if everyone can’t use it

Realm has a very tight browser restriction for some reason—for example with Firefox they only support the latest version or the one previous to latest. I have one church member who doesn’t own a computer, she uses her computer at work to access Realm. At least she used to. After 4 months of successfully using Realm, she’s now blocked due to an unsupported browser. Her work computer is “locked down” so she can’t update her browser. Realm can offer no workarounds.

I didn’t detect this restriction when initially evaluating the system or we never would have chosen it.

Their browser restriction is, IMO, unnecessarily restrictive. We’ll have to evaluate whether we want to continue paying for a system that not everyone can use. And Realm is awfully buggy to boot. I’m sorry to say I can’t recommend Realm.
