Ratings and Reviews
Love this but Glitchy
To begin, I’m super grateful to have a platform to use to continue to give contributions to my church during the shutdown due to Covid and I’d love to continue to use this when things are restored.
The issue I have is that the app is now glitchy.
Either I can get all the way finished with submitting my contribution only to get a message that my session timed out. It wouldn’t matter how fast this was done, it would continue this way for days at a time with the only resolution to it being the uninstalling and reinstalling of the app.
This started to be a monthly occurrence.
Now I’m getting an error message that says my login failed due to general failure.
I want to contribute under my account so to keep record for myself but it’s becoming more of a hassle rather than a convenience.
I’m sure I’ll have to do the same this time again but I feel this should be addressed sooner than later.
Barely functional with no recourse
This app is clunky at best. I’m able to give and to set up a recurring payment, but the app befuddlingly has to switch out of the app to load a website in Safari in order to complete the process! What’s more, once a payment is set up, you’d better be ready to give that amount for life, as I am unable to delete or edit a recurring payment once set up. Not only is the only way to edit a recurring payment deleting it and re-creating it, frustrating enough in itself, but the actual “delete” functionality for recurring payments doesn’t work. There are no errors shown, no feedback given. Instead, it just looks like it’s loading, but when it finishes the recurring payment is still there.
Worst of all, there is no alternate method of trying to accomplish this task. No website. No help form. No way of actually contacting the company to try and report what I take to be an honest bug in the app. While I appreciate what the app is trying to do for churches, the whole experience is user-hostile, with no recourse available if you run into trouble.
Developer Response ,
We appreciate your feedback. Unfortunately, per Apple regulations, all donations made via an app on iOS, must divert out to Safari to complete the transaction. We do our best to make the user experience as easy as possible by allowing you to quickly get back in the app by clicking the link at the top of the screen. We apologize you were having an issue with deleting your recurring gift. That has not been a bug we can recreate in our testing. We would be happy to assist further if you would like to provide your phone model and iOS version. We do offer a Help option in the sidebar menu, with a link to FAQs and direction to contact your church office for assistance. Your church can contact us with your concerns.
Harder than necessary
The format choice is terrible and makes it hard to use . A gray bar to highlight the title of the information you’re looking at (“fund“) and on the same page a gray button for the action you’re supposed to take that’s basically invisible because it’s almost the same size and length as the static bar. It got frustrating and I almost clicked out of my donation process multiple times because I couldn’t figure out where the choice was, what was it asking me to do. Every action step had a gray button, such as for “next“, but again the same gray button/bar look was also used to just present information. It’s not like you can’t use a different color because you’re running out of them! The app is dominated by white and gray screens. How about yellow since that’s in your logo along with a gray!
