  • I Like the Realm App Feb 20, 2020

    By AMPavone
    I like the convenience of having the Connect App on my phone! It’s great to view to newsfeed, register for events or to check my giving. There are a number of communication modes with terminology that gets a little confusing, like a message is really an email, but overall it’s easy to use.

    App has improved greatly since I posted in 2019. It has been a lifeline for our church during the pandemic to keep people connected and engaged and has allowed the church to continue giving to the work when they can't attend services. Very thankful we did this prior to 2020.

  • Adequate with Limitations and Bugs May 14, 2020

    By Will in Newnan
    Though I appreciate and often utilize the services that Realm provides, it consistently shows badge notifications after I’ve opened the application. I’ve had a badge notification on the Realm icon for weeks now, and the last time the app offered an update was in late April. I understand the times can limit fixes to things like this, but this isn’t new. The app has proven to be buggy since its inception, including limitations on posting. If you try to make a post that fills the visible area of your screen above the keyboard, the screen will not follow the cursor once it gets too big. Therefore, you lose visibility on your typing, which is dangerous for devices that like to autocorrect! Three stars is probably being generous.

    The Connect app is a great way to stay connected to your family. The news feed, events, and groups to call people right from the app. Try it today.

    Working well until recently when I couldn't sign in. I uninstalled & installed it again & now no problems.
  • It’s value is limited if everyone can’t use it Jan 17, 2020

    Realm has a very tight browser restriction for some reason—for example with Firefox they only support the latest version or the one previous to latest. I have one church member who doesn’t own a computer, she uses her computer at work to access Realm. At least she used to. After 4 months of successfully using Realm, she’s now blocked due to an unsupported browser. Her work computer is “locked down” so she can’t update her browser. Realm can offer no workarounds. I didn’t detect this restriction when initially evaluating the system or we never would have chosen it. Their browser restriction is, IMO, unnecessarily restrictive. We’ll have to evaluate whether we want to continue paying for a system that not everyone can use. And Realm is awfully buggy to boot. I’m sorry to say I can’t recommend Realm.

    Are you figuring out why the app always makes me re-enter my login credentials???Can you please setup fingerprint sign in because now every time I use the app I must sign in with my ID and password. This is sooooo aggravating. Might as well remove the app and look for another.

  • Not totally accessible to people who use screen readers Oct 30, 2020

    By tn voiceover user
    I am blind and use voiceover on my iPhone to access realm. If the buttons are labeled and you tap on them nothing happens, you have to turn voiceover off and hopefully whatever you want comes on the screen. After tapping and turning voiceover off and back on you might be where you want to be. Our pastor posted an article and the only way to see this was to try that trick. Our church website is semi accessible making finding realm on the web difficult, once I did still could not navigate using Safari with voiceover. People disabilities are often excluded from church because elements are inaccessible. I am disappointed that is a person who is blind that this app which could otherwise connect me with people is another opportunity to exclude me.

  • Great too, disappointing app Jul 18, 2020

    By techiegene
    The functionality provided by Realm is great but this app is quite disappointing. The numerical indicator on the app icon never represents actual new things and almost never clears, even when I’ve read everything. Posting information with the app is extremely difficult due to the fact that switching to something else momentarily will almost always clear whatever was entered. Any of the things that fall under the communications section of the app are nearly useless due to the notification issues and the lack of timeliness of things coming in.

  • Needs updates and missing lots of little iOS perks Dec 7, 2020

    By kabgolfer
    App has potential and could be very useful. However after waiting and waiting for bug fixes, updates and more. To be honest, seems ACS Team is not interested in a better user experience with this mobile app. One key issue, the badge notification does not update after you read all msgs or clear them. Also, my members continue to get app crash while in Chat...random occurrences from simple things like website links, file attachments, etc. Lastly the experience on iPad is the same if not worse.

    Awesome app that helps me stay connected with my church family. Getting to see my giving history, register for events, and stay up to date with church/group communication is awesome! I’ve struggled with feeling connected to my church family before through the week and this helps a ton

  • Just what we needed! Jun 19, 2020

    By Aaholt
    Realm and the Realm Connect app is just what we needed to keep our parish connected. It is a great tool for both parishioners and staff to keep connected. Now we have a one stop shop for everything we do as a parish.
  • Great app Dec 18, 2020

    By racricmft
    The posts are made immediately and the replies go immediately to the one who posted. The info for participants is easy to locate. Haven’t used the individual messaging much.

  • Printing Dec 11, 2020

    By gvl lady
    As the author of a newsletter, it does not come to me. Crazy! My husband had to forward it to me! I’m so dependent on that process which I think is a huge flaw. I like to print out the newsletter and can’t do that either. Cumbersome. And now I cannot seem to pick a nickname without it being a pain in the neck!

    App icon doesn't load on android phone. Restart didn't help

    It's a great app in theory and a blessing when it's working. I'm able to get prayer requests, church news, and even to give financially thru it. But I lose access to groups on a fairly regular basis, even with installation of updates. I'm then forced to uninstall and reinstall every couple months. 🙄😪

    App runs better now, but I get zero push notifications, even with the settings enable in the app and in Android. At least I still get emails/texts for most, but push notifications would be better.

    The app no longer lets you stay logged in. You have to log in every time now. Can you change that back to how it was?

    I depend on this app for communication among our staff. I'll get an email that says there's a new chat message but when I log into the app, I can't see any new messages. I know it's there since I can see it in my email but I can't see it on the thread on the chat. Very frustrating.

  • Realm doesn’t work they way other apps work, making it much harder to use Dec 17, 2020

    By DavidKellyPhoto
    I just wrote my update to my small group THREE times. I started out with a new post, sharing the zoom info, adding a scripture verse and question. I switched to The Bible App to get the scripture text, and when went back to Realm my draft post was gone! I had to recreate the two in an email, then go back and put it in Realm. But while I was editing I got a call... and lost it AGAIN!

    I guess I'll consistently put a 1 star rating on every time I use the app and have to uninstall then reinstall to get it to work. I was hoping to promote this tool for my congregation to use for directory contact but that still doesn't seem the case. I've had to do this for a year now with no foreseeable change so far. Yes, I'm about to reinstall ... again.
