Just one thing to fix . . .
I think that this app is very useful and an awesome resource for church members. However, the “household” circle (at least for those people I know) does not seem to work correctly. As far as I know, household circles do not include actual household members, but rather just the single user on the app. Therefore if we send something, we are only messaging ourselves. In my personal household group I am shown as an administrator, but I have no power to add anyone else to my group. I don’t know if this has to do with the fact that I’m 18+ and living with my parents, but it does seem like a bug.
In content and design, though, this is a great app. I enjoy browsing the discover tab, and especially like the church music playlists that the app shares.
So much potential!
I am giving it 5 stars, but I hope someone in development will still read this review and take my plea into consideration. I use this app daily to meet goals and write in my journal. Sometimes it takes forever to even pop up on my phone. The checklists often freeze and don’t register my taps. So I have to go into settings and choose “show completed” and that usually works better. But I prefer for have completed tasks disappear. I thought it was my phone, but I just got a new one and it still struggles. So much. So much so that I want to see if I can access the app from my computer.
I also wish there was a way to set a goal for 6 days a week, or 3 days a week, and have them show up on the days I want. Like a goal to exercise. I don’t want it on Sundays, but it has to be, and if I don’t mark it done, it shows my progress is lacking. So instead, my goal is to exercise or meditate 30 minutes a day. Which is fine. But there are other goals I really don’t want to work on every single day. I do have some weekly goals, and that works well.
I want to say that as I’ve consistently used this app daily, I have seen so much personal growth and I love it! I don’t know if there’s a way to back up my journal or access it online or export it, but I sure hope there is. It has been a long, long time since I have written in my journal daily, but thanks to this app I am going on 5 months of daily journal entries!
Circles 😬 Everything else 🤩
I don’t want my review to make this app’s rating go down at all, but I would like to see a bit more flexibility in the Circles tab. I think it’s really cool that it’s already put me in the group chats within my ward, and some other ones like priests quorum, and all of the young men. But there are times when it’s more convenient to just message a couple of people, rather than the entirety of the youth in the ward. Being able to choose one or a few people in a circle at your own expense would be a great addition to the app.
This app is really amazing though, there’s a Discover tab that is very fun to explore, with a lot of spiritual things to pull ideas from. I love this Scripture of the day thing going on too, I’ve loved it for the past few days since I’ve gotten this app and will continue to, I have yet to put the calendar to use, but it looks promising and I’m excited to put it to use. The goals and impressions tab is a bit disappointing. The goals are only one-liners, and when you tap them you can view your description of the goal. They’re pretty brief. Impressions are as expected though, they appear similar to a journal entry. Overall I’m very happy with the app so far and am looking forward to seeing it grow with features and users as more people join the church, and more church members get the app. Thanks for all of your work so far! :)
