Unreliable. Help email address doesn't work. Update: A "remember me" button was added - it doesn't work. Sometimes it will hold me logged in for a few hours at a time. But, the next day I test to begin the application I have to enter my entire username and password again.
This is a amazing application and very handy in the android game and for prep ahead of time. The PDF documents are very well done. The rotation for the android game time roster is excellent. I love it that it helps you email all the parents at once. Be sure to obtain your code from the local coordinator then log in. The application seems better than the desk top ver my opinion.
The concept is great, but it has some issues. The best part of the application is being able to quickly remove or add a player to the lineup. Every week there seems to be 2-3 players that present right at android game time. It's also nice that all the contact information is in one spot. The remember me function during login does not work. Also, the application locks up often.
REVISED 11/29/16 : After a couple of calls to the application help #, this application works perfectly. The ladies who helped me were very nice and very patient. Apparently a back end problem that they fixed. UPDATE 1/14/18: Thank you, thank you! This modernize doesn't create me sign in every time I close the app.☺
Needs a small more work... "Remember Me" function should at least remember Coach's email address but it does NOT, requiring complete login information every time you begin the App. Does not allow you scroll down in a players information page within the Squad Roster section so you cannot see/edit/Add to Contacts any extra Parent/Guardian beyond the first listed. Needs a back button/arrow on the Squad Roster page. The "Team Page" you can share only lists the Head Coach (yet reads "Coaches"--would be nice to list ALL Coaches for that particular team). The "Team Page" "Practices" section could benefit from tweaking the "Next Practice" to contain the calendar date of that Next Practice (the ever-present/sticky/pinned text "Practice Begins Week Of xx/xx/xxxx" doesn't serve planning requirements after that date has passed). Additionally, adding the ability to see ALL future practice dates in calendar format on that Squad Page as well as be able to link said calendar to famous calendars such as Google Calendar, iCalendar, etc. would be most helpful. Lastly, while the App's description that one can text and email from within the App, that is NOT entirely true. The Application merely serves as parent contact information database (which IS useful!) and mini notice composer... you then complete the sending from whatever "normal" messaging or emailing Application you use/whatever is already installed on your phone. BTW, be aware that the App's SMS composer will cap your recipients at ten even when you select more than ten (the Application does NOT communicate or give feedback as to such a limit either... for example, they could do so with a callout/static text atop the recipient selection page and/or pop-up notice when you select more than ten recipients). You'll just have to forward your text to the other remaining parents the Application dropped from the recipient list. I am using the Application on a Samsung Galaxy S9.
After the update, the submit button doesn't work and I can't log in, even after uninstalling/installing multiple times. This has happened right before games, leaving me scrambling to do a paper roster at the latest minute. This defeats the purpose of me buying the app. Also, it does not save roster changes/substitutions. There have been not good reviews since the modernize and no responses/fixes. Totally frustrating.
Will not allow me log in after the modernize that just got pushed through 30 minute ago. Seriously? Have a android game tomorrow and can't access my team. Fantastic. 1-25-18. Still haven't fixed it. Won't log in. Only works on Apple devices now. I guess they don't care since they haven't communicated or even apologized.
I think it's not good stewardship of the volunteers that serve Upward to create them for the app. I haven't for an application in years because most organizations them for free, and I think it's sad that the first one I had to for was for a ministry organization where I am a volunteer. Secondly the login system for this application is a wreck! I have to re-enter EVERYTHING each time I begin the app, even within a few mins after my screen times out. Because of that, I can't see myself using this application in a android game (now that I've for it), because it will be too cumbersome in the midst of live android game action. Definitely disappointed by an organization that has plenty of history and experience to create this work well.
It's e design is dated and it has a lot of bugs. Like, the "send suggestion" function sends to an email address that doesn't work. Every time I lock the smartphone during the game, when I reopen I have to log back into the app. It doesn't hold me logged in, OR remember my name/password. Makes it basically useless.
