Decent... when it works
Our church has been using this app for about a year now, and I have noticed that the same problems have been happening constantly. Every few days there’s an error message saying Realm couldn’t connect to the server, so I don’t get notifications for hours. Push notifications for this app is hit or miss: sometimes it sends me alerts, sometimes it doesn’t. I have to constantly check it to see what we are doing for choir, practices, youth events, etc. because I don’t trust that it will alert me when a church admin tries to inform us of an event. Realm has not proven itself to be consistently stable and trustworthy for notifications. Every now and then it will kick me off and make me log back in again, posts from two years ago come up as the most recent post, and, again, it crashes every now and then so we have no communication between teams during that time. I give it two stars instead of one because when it does work, its features work very well! Being able to be apart of several ministry groups at once, having push notifications for time-sensitive matters and tithing & giving records are great features, and although the app is great overall, it needs to be stabilized and prove itself reliable for notifications (without being babysat by checking it every hour) before I give it a higher rating.
Pastor, and really getting frustrated
We upgraded from old school ACS to Realm and it’s simply dysfunctional. The App is constantly “connecting” without messages coming in or going out. The groups/events do not allow for they various ways real churches structure themselves. There no way to volunteer and track volunteers. There’s no way to archive former members or attendees, they are either a part of the church system group or deleted. And the request for features or changes gets pat answers that aren’t helpful to us becoming the connected church we want to be. Calendar items are not in chronological order. Chat is unreliable, with direct personal messages never coming through. It’s really odd. We are still invested and trying to limp along but there will probably come a point where we punt. And that point is getting closer.
Notifications, messages, posting to newsfeed not working
Guys, it’s been like 8 months of this, and it seems like almost nothing on this app works the way it should. Of course that’s an exaggeration, but that’s how it feels because the problems are really basic problems. The app is buggy, wont let me post photos from my phone, doesn’t update notifications, messages don’t work at all for most of our church right now (and they don’t want to log into a computer to send messages to each other)—it doesn’t work even for the most basic functions. The past few weeks, people have missed events, showed up at the wrong place at the right time due to failure of the app to update and actually facilitate communication.
Our church groups are probably about to abandon and go back to GroupMe, which is a pain, but at least it works. My patient group leaders have waited with me, because I asked Realm support on the phone about R&D and was told that there were over 100 people on the R&D team. To be blunt, though, the actual updates that are released make it seem, along with the ongoing, seemingly unaddressed problems, seem like there’s one or two people cranking out little upgrades here and there that have nothing to do with the functions that I and our people actually want to use (messaging each other, posting photos to their newsfeeds, and RSVPing to group events).
