Ok but ....

Love the fact that we have access to CCB . Sure that’s nice ... BUT why do we need have such security access ? Can’t we just have a “stay log in for 1 day”? So that I don’t have to authenticate every time I switch off... also why have the praise and prayer window so small?! It doesn’t scroll and it’s 1/3 of the screen . What’s up with that ?? There’s not spell check and sometimes it does the caps mode and I can’t get off it. Have to go to another text editor write and paste ... super annoying !! Rather log on to CCB and do what I have to do ....

Developer Response ,

Hello! The Touch ID functionality is optional. If you don't feel like you need the extra security, you can disable Touch ID in the settings and then the app won't ask for extra credentials before opening. Regarding the praise and prayer window, that issue was fixed in a recent update. If you're still experiencing the problem on the latest version of the app, let us know at Lastly, the spell check should be working, we haven't heard any issues with that feature. If you are still experiencing these issues, please reach out to us at and we'll get you up and running!

Love this app!

Glad to have access to CCB via phone. Would love to have full calendar options, including seeing the entire church calendar, adding events for groups, and even the ability to add photos to events. Currently to add an event, need to do so on a computer, and it doesn't show up on the app immediately. Thankful to be able to take attendance easily with a phone or tablet. Making great progress improving the app thus far. Thank you and God bless!

Low end tool for today’s needs

We use this at our church. It’s barely ok. The congregation doesn’t us an app (not even available!), but has to use the full screen computer version. It’s pretty poor on a smart phone. Generally, it’s not intuitive and pages are not modern look and feel. Plenty of programming improvements could easily be made. I am guessing the target market here is churches who want budget, off the shelf, low functionality tools. It amazes me that the app gets so many reviews at 3 stars and below and yet there have been so few improvements.
