App Does not work
by Golden freddy faz bear on 2018/09/28 22:39
All mine does is say rotate device to access mixer I try to rotate it but does not work. Don’t wast your time...
A great worship accompany app!!!
by Sanbi team on 2018/07/30 14:19
I downloaded the app yesterday...and already up and running. The program was fairly intuitive, and easy to navigate. Just remember to save your settings by pushing the "download" button, or else you'll be using the unedited versions of the song. That was the trickiest part for me...but once I figured out the nuisances of the app....it was a breeze.
Easy to use
by Fizzle Whiz on 2018/04/15 15:18
For the tech challenged musicians/worship leader, this is a great solution. It is easy the use and modify the songs and song sets. For a reasonable monthly fee, you can upload custom songs and loops.
Please update!!!!!
by Laz3r on 2018/04/11 23:49
This app is awesome and obviously there are frequent users but it needs a stability update. I’ve had it crash during a few rehearsals by myself and it scares me to think that might happen in worship. I hope someone still monitors this thread and you guys can develop it.
Worst
by Katie_Creep on 2017/11/14 12:49
Everything that you want/ need to make his app work needs to be purchased. A simple metronome on this app needs to be bought at he price of $1.99 which I think is over priced for a simple click on each beat. When you first download you have to again download another song just so you can do anything on the app. I hope my review helps you so that you don’t waste your time.
Great for Small Churches
by TexasBear on 2017/10/22 22:00
I use this in our small church and it works great. When I have a guitarist, I can mute that instrument. When I am leading and know I won’t be able to devote my attention to keyboard, I can turn that layer on. The price of the songs seems reasonable, but it adds up. The same songs in multi tracks format ranges from $10 to $25 on other sites. The most I have seen in this app so far is $9.99. PLEASE add an auto login option. It is a pain and a distraction to have to login each time I open the app. It makes me sweat when I am on stage and I hope that my finder hits that login button in just the right spot.
Password reset??
by CoolCoxFamily on 2017/08/27 14:49
I have not used the app in a while due to live music. However I have forgotten my password and want to reset it. How do I do so?
Reset password
by Sing4Him! on 2017/06/08 01:47
How can I reset my password? I haven't used the app in awhile and don't remember my password.
App won't even let me login
by Glloria on 2016/11/20 18:21
Been trying to login for months to try app... No success... No support nothing!!!
RAPIDLY FIXED
by Jorge cuba on 2016/10/03 18:19
THERE WAS A PROBLEM WITH THE APP BUT I CALLED THEM AND HAD THE PROBLEM FIXED IMMEDIATELY. NO THAT IS SERVICE. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. AND GBU ALL
Useless
by Xadreque on 2016/08/27 12:29
Always saying "connection Failure" when creating account to start using it
Unclear
by Holabella29 on 2016/03/01 05:22
It's a bit unclear when it comes to instructions.
Only Crash
by GodwastheWord on 2015/12/28 16:25
Of course I downloaded the upgrade on Saturday night; Big no-no. App won't even open!!! Used an old phone to get me through Sunday morning. App is a great idea, but useless if I can't count on it. I've spent a lot of money on songs that I can't get to in the current version. Please make it dependable.
Suggestion
by starjeremie on 2015/12/18 05:18
I like the new version much better but I would like to see if we can be able to get vocal background in all the songs and if you can put the tempo up or down like you did for the key change. The best app ever
Crash crash
by Whaleyco on 2015/12/05 01:14
Won't even open on iPhone 6 Plus with iOS 9.1. Seems to work on the iPad.
Don't waste your time
by Leterrip on 2015/11/14 22:45
This app used to work really well and all of a sudden, the play button has disappeared. It has really been a problem for us, as we are a small church and used Band In Hand almost every Sunday. Now it's useless. Bought a bunch of songs that we cannot use. Oh yeah, and don't try to use their "contact" tab, I tried that too, and absoluetly "no reply." Not a good way to sell your product.
Cannot Play
by rudiin on 2015/10/24 17:57
I grabbed this app because I thought it would be a nice way for me to practice with some background accompaniment. I still believe that. However, I have found that I am unable to play the music. In your screenshots I see the blue buttons for play and tempo adjustments, etc. - but I just have a grey bar with nothing on it. I have power cycled as well as updated to latest 9.1 iOS. I would love to try it out but cannot.
Pretty good.
by Bruin-55 on 2015/05/24 05:13
I don't know why people are complaining about the price per song. If you look up any loop website, they are usually $20-30 per song, so this isn't bad. And $9 a song isn't much for someone who is serious about worship music stuff. And the low price kinda explains some of the lower quality samples..
Great idea but ...
by XoT3K on 2015/05/03 15:44
Dang, the downloads a very cost-prohibitive.
Love this App but need help asap...
by MandaMae123 on 2015/04/15 02:38
This app is great and was working great on my iPhone AND my iPad, then it updated and now I cannot log into my account on my iPhone. I used both iPhone and iPad to run the app for the longest time and now can only use my iPad. I have $76 invested in the app and songs so far and I NEED to be able to use both devices. Someone please fix this problem!!!!
Terrible
by Aric999 on 2015/04/03 01:25
this app is great at being terrible! 10 out of 10! Best Way to waste money! The prices are amazingly low at only $9.00 a song!
God's gift to church software
by walker.owsley on 2015/03/02 21:52
This is a great app! A must have for any worship leaders out there!
$9.00 per song uh.....no
by &*(chuck on 2015/02/08 06:50
cant see paying that much per song. Even if I bundled its still to expensive. Great app, bad business plan.
A little disappointed.
by Brownsville Chica on 2015/01/28 21:09
For some reason I'm able to log in to my account on a desktop. But the ios app never accepts my password. That stinks because the whole point for me was to be able to use my iPad for worship service. Also, songs are pricey. We are a small church. Why don't you charge a monthly fee based on church size? So that way songs could be free, or at least at a great discount.
Great but have suggestions
by Psch on 2015/01/17 15:09
Would like to suggest : 1) split screen with the mixer and music parts 2) the quality of the drums are poor 3) would like a better click sound. More clear 4) when you have a playlist and plays it, the time to end a song and load the next one is too long. Paulo
This App Drives Me Crazy!
by Rotten53 on 2014/10/14 03:51
About every other time I use this app there is an issue. If I didn't absolutely need it for worship, I'd drop it like a hot potato!
Problems with iOS8
by ChuckHarris3 on 2014/09/19 22:00
I love you app but since the iOS update the keyboard pops up in the mixer. It doesn't let you hide the keyboard either. Please update soon!!!
Good idea but poorly executed
by Bgs1987 on 2014/09/14 13:25
This app is a good idea, however it is poorly executed. The recorded instruments sound like 64 or 96kbps bitrate, so the quality is poor. This makes the instruments sound fake. I don't think this is worth the money.
Good but has problems
by Rikki Mikki on 2014/08/31 11:41
I've been using worshipbandinhand for several weeks now. The features are pretty good. I enjoy the prices of the individual songs. Since we are a small church with no sound guy, I needed something I could run from the stage and this fit the bill nicely. Also, I love the prices of individual songs and we are deep in the lifewayworship ecosystem so there are lots of good choices for us. However, there are a several serious issues I wish could be addressed: 1) It takes too many clicks to move from one setlist song to the next. 2) You can't delete a song once it is downloaded. 3) I'm regularly experiencing "connection failed" errors when trying to download content. 4) Often, the recording layouts don't exactly match our arrangement. I can move sections of the song around (which is awesome) but I can't remove any of them (which is very limiting if I want to shorten a tune in a long playlist). Also, I'd love to be able to import stems from other sources or add my own tracks to the ones provided for each song...
Great app.
by bojo1498 on 2014/08/26 12:10
Super awesome and really easy to use.
Not bad but
by Miguelsuits.net on 2014/07/14 05:56
So every one likes this app I guess, but the music is one sided. I would like to use the app for praise and worship but my church music style is completely different. We use more organ and kit vs string heavy.
Great
by Larry(hammer) on 2014/06/25 01:41
Good app for practice or a single performer.
Lame; unintuitive; waste of time
by Timasato on 2014/04/16 22:24
Do not waste your time.
Great for small church
by CREated59 on 2014/03/09 16:00
I have been using this for several months now. We use it in our worship services. We don't have a worship band so this adds to the fullness of the music. I'm not sure what the problem is for multiple devices. I use it on the church's iPad and my own. I do agree that the prices are kind of high on some songs. Fortunately they have bundles and some $4-7 songs.
Great concept!
by hardrocker828 on 2014/03/05 22:46
Great concept, but the prices for songs are super high 19 dollars for Arms Open wide?
Great
by Jr244 on 2014/02/09 22:47
It is freaking great for my worship ministry great job
Can only authorize one system
by runneorun on 2014/02/09 01:50
Absolutely ridiculous that I cannot open the app on my iPhone and iPad. So if I authorize one system I can't open it on the other. I think I pay enough for these tracks to get at least 3 authorizations, just like iTunes allows. I've had the app for a couple years now and have appreciated the upgrades, but I'm close to abandoning it now.
Great App!!!!
by Hanncam on 2013/12/28 13:42
We needed extra "filler" instruments to create that full bodied sound and we got them with this app! It really delivers! Can't wait for more songs!!!
AMAZING!! The best app for churches yet!
by RevMattHall on 2013/12/21 20:40
This has changed how we do worship. We can now offer worship on a professional level. What a great Idea!!
BIH app
by harlod m on 2013/09/19 19:21
App crashes every other time I open. Tracks are ok but not great. Songs are way over priced. Just buy logic and make your own. After 10 songs you've payed for logic at $20 a song.
Can be better!!!
by LANTMUSIC on 2013/08/18 23:42
I liked the update that lets us send click to left, right, and both....but can you add an option where I can send the click with the mix on left for in ears, and still get the mix alone for the house on the right...it will be more like a stereo click track that we can pan it...that will help us a lot specially if having an small sound system and our in ear are very limited....God Bless
Great app idea, but...
by joko360 on 2013/08/14 03:27
like other reviewers wrote, you buy each song individually at $9.99, kinda pricey for building a music library, even with nice features. Also you have to log into app each time, kinda lame. Also would be nice if you could lengthen or shorten a song for when your worship team wants to add or shorten songs. Aside from these things; good app overall.
Very helpful
by THE TIZMO on 2013/08/07 21:31
This app has been a great help to our church's worship experience. I love the ability to chose several keys. The only suggestion I have is that they some how allow you to change the order of the song in order to make it longer or shorter. Besides that the play is stellar.
What a rip-off!
by Pokemon Fan20 on 2013/08/04 17:00
I got it and you have to make some stupid account just to get in and you have to download more songs to even use it. I deleted it as soon as I got it. What a ripoff!
Perfect for worship
by Oldrumguy on 2013/08/03 20:55
Just recently looking at doing a mobile worship gig and this works great for me to mute or not depending on who shows up to play live if someone can't make it I resort to this to play their parts without them.
Great app!!
by Joetheworshipguy on 2013/07/21 23:21
This app is great! Especially if your just wanting to learn to play with a track as a team or a solo artist! I only gave it 4 stars cause the songs are rather pricey and you have to by them separately! But over all great application!
Excelent
by tellocruz on 2013/07/07 01:14
Great app
Nice app, but songs are too expensive
by Good for my small business. on 2013/06/23 19:56
We are missionaries in Mexico, and due to the high prices of the songs, it does not help at all. The app is nice, but not affortable for us serving the Lord in a low budget. With the price of a few albums I could buy a full instrument.
More suggestions...
by Little may may! on 2013/06/11 02:14
Love this app and the potential it has to transform my worship ministry. Here are a few suggestions: 1. Consistent vocal count-in's and prep beats. Some songs have a vocal count in and some don't. This would be sweet! 2. Some of the fills at the end of the songs are too long. A couple of the songs vamp the final chord for 25-30 seconds. My church "isn't quite there yet", so I either have to have someone fade out the track (usually me) or juggle hymnals until the vamp / famata ends. Gets a bit awkward. 3. Allow the importation of mp3's to the BNH app. This would allow me to use the clicks and loops that I already have, without having to go to another app to use them for songs that I don't have BNH stems for. I would be willing to pay for an enhanced BNH app for this option! 4. Keep building your library! Tomlin, Passion, Hillsongs, Gateway, North Point, etc! Thank you for this app and for helping me give my best in worship each week!
Good tool but drained Battery
by Discniple13 on 2013/05/24 03:29
I have used it a couple times and its a good tool but my phone battery is drained much faster after installing it... Even when it's not in use!
Needs work
by teosails on 2013/05/22 10:15
The mixer is great but without having a lead sheet it is hard to play along. Also, I haven't figured out how to access the addition song list from the app. This app is a great idea but it needs some work.
GREAT price!
by RVEly on 2013/05/20 12:58
The people who are complaining about the prices of the songs don't know the industry. I used Ableton with another multitrack supplier and the prices are $39 per song. The $5 - 10 per song with Band In Hand is actually a VERY reasonable alternative! I'm thankful for it.
$10 for a song!??
by Factmanfowler on 2013/05/18 04:19
I love what the app does, but $10 a song is crazy!
Too expensive
by VanKeulen Family on 2013/05/16 20:30
Great idea! I was really excited about it. Until I opened the website and found that songs average from $7-10 dollars. Really. 10 buck for a song. I'll do it the old fashioned way with the cd.
Excellent
by bryanlaramore on 2013/05/04 21:28
Just what we needed
App Store?
by Gare0611 on 2013/05/01 16:24
Just downloaded the app but I cannot seem to find the in App Store. Not usable without it!
Great but need more songs
by Stephansms on 2013/04/30 11:30
This is a Great app but need more songs to do.
Bad update.
by ts_peach on 2013/04/29 04:15
It's a simple clean way to add looping to your worship teams. I have liked it mostly. However I am not a fan of the removal of the song store from the app. I'm guessing you now need to go to a web site to get the songs.... Why?
Amazing app
by Thebeve on 2013/04/26 00:38
I love this app!
Seriously...
by Jason DeBerry on 2013/04/23 23:20
I just purchased iTunes cards specifically for this app and am no longer able to use them. Waste of money.
Store gone
by etriv89 on 2013/04/22 15:02
Since the new update ,the store to purchases new songs is gone...making the app rather worthless
I hate the update
by sandbar17 on 2013/04/22 12:35
The app is great, on the precious version I could shop for songs in app. Now I have to go to the website to shop. Absolutely not convenient.
Worship Drummer
by Chris_Allen_21 on 2013/04/21 17:46
Great app, agree that it would be nice if there were some sort of a discount for smaller churches because buying songs here does get pricey. Also wish that I could download this app onto my MacBook instead of having to use my phone. Thanks!
Great idea! Prices not so great.
by flstcman on 2013/03/20 02:33
This looks like an awesome app that I would love to use BUT the song prices have convinced me that now is not the time.
Stinks
by rsmevangel on 2013/03/19 23:45
Songs load very load and updates with new features, not at all!
#bandinhand
by Randybrown237 on 2013/03/18 02:43
Wow this app has saved me a couple of weeks in a row. 1st week had no drummer, put the click in the ears of the bass and electric guitar players and off we went. Week 2 I used it by myself and it was a hit. Perfect app for small churches and worship venues. Could use some improvement, but if your looking for that type of option try ableton live. Great job guys. Thanks for your commitment to helping worship leaders do it better.
Nice
by kb8zks on 2013/03/17 04:39
Good app. Good sound. Prices are fair, but selection needs improvement. Would love to see this accessible on a desktop, too.
Suggestion
by Kihgdtujf on 2013/03/17 00:27
I enjoy the program and the ability to mute an instrument or just the ability to turn down an instrument. I really would like to have a lead singer so that I can know where to come in...just for practice mode. Also, I would like to see the program to have the ability to change key wayyyyyy more then what it does now. Songs are bit expensive, as well. Otherwise I would have rated you five stars.
Love it!
by kuhraig on 2013/03/16 04:47
Great app! Perfect for when I lead in smaller venues with a smaller band but want to keep the same full sound that we have on our main stage. Songs and sounds are high quality, and I don't mind paying for this kind of quality. Keep the standards high!
Music Director
by Ghw3 on 2013/03/14 02:21
I agree with other reviews...lower song prices for small churches!!
Really like it. (But expensive)
by Beezybe on 2013/03/13 18:24
Really cool. But songs are really, really expensive.
Great worship app and tool but too expensive
by Link2Jesus on 2013/03/13 16:14
Overall wonderful app and tool but prices are way too high for the average small church. Just downloading 10-15 songs can cost over $100. Please consider offering lower and better pricing or small church or group rates. Thank you for your hard work.
Great app, minor flaws
by movieman120 on 2013/03/11 05:21
Prices for songs NEEDS to be cheaper, if not then at least like 1 free song every week or something
App is good but....
by Wadev3 on 2013/03/04 03:08
This is a cool app and definitely makes worship easier when people in our band have to be gone. Couple suggestions though... One- there needs to be a way to bounce the mixed track down so I can load an mp3 or whatever into my sheet music program. (Can't have both aps open at once) but my sheet music program will play linked tracks. Two- would be nice to be able to take the click out but still get a count off. Three- would be nice to be able to change the bpm up or down somewhat. Four - I would have given this app more stars if the prices were less expensive. I know it takes work to make these tracks but $9 is way too much for one song that I may just use the drum track on. CHEAPER PRICES PLEASE! Five - would be good to be able to flip arrangements (drag an extra chorus or change the chorus and bridge around) I know that would require a lot more than what it sounds but it would be cool.
Really Good... For the most part.
by smcelyea on 2013/03/04 02:17
I do like the program. The songs are mostly good. A broader selection of genre would be great. I would like a program I could buy that integrates with the app that would allow me to produce my own music on my MAC. I do however feel that for the price of the track, the music chart for the arrangement should be INCLUDED! THAT is my only real complaint. I even bit the bullet and BOUGHT a chart IT WAS NOT EVEN THE SAME!!! I could write my own chart, but for the convince the track provides, the chart should be a PDF download WITH the purchase. It will be interesting to see how things develop now that Media Shout is in the mix. Keep up the good work.
Great
by iainvelez on 2013/02/28 16:09
I love how this app helps me train my team and allows me to not have to compromise. When one of my musicians isn't ready or when I'm lacking an instrument I can just use this app. I do with they had more of a selection though.
Love it.... But
by Natetastic on 2013/02/27 17:18
Ok so this app blew my mind when i first heard about it. I can definitely see myself using this to help lead worship at church. But how are the prices going to help compete against the split track prices of iTunes? 1.29 or 7.99 hmmm iTunes sounds better for now. But i will still try and take advantage of this app!!! I love it
Great
by Mdogg4him on 2013/02/26 23:56
Lovin it so far
More FREE songs please
by Zonafyde on 2013/02/26 16:58
This app is good but all of the free songs I never heard of. Prices are kind of expensive. But overall I think the app is good.
Need MORE songs!!
by Tweet: @pastorc_arbc on 2013/02/21 23:30
App is great for worship teams with limited instrumentalists. My only request is that they crank out more song selections faster! We need MORE songs!! :)
Worship Leader
by Tsuggs1969 on 2013/02/20 21:30
Great App....the only thing that would help is if there were a channel for call outs or a way to add Call outs to the click... Great resource !
Youth band savior
by jasonkindrix on 2013/02/18 18:12
Wow this will change your youth praise and worship band and make them sound like you dream of in your sleep! It is must have for youth ministry! Now we need some planetshakers to download!
Awesome tool for worship
by RanCyn on 2013/02/11 18:22
Very helpful for background music and "fillin"
Great App!
by ChrisRamosMusic on 2013/02/09 07:44
This has really revolutionized the way I do worship. The days of hunting down someone to help out on a last moments notice or when a worship team member can't make it for whatever reason are gone. This is such a valuable tool for worship leaders of a big worship teams as well as someone on their own. Kudos!!!
Good idea
by Small church on 2013/02/02 07:19
I like the premise of this app. Not a lot of help, or information.
Great
by Mrpowers623 on 2013/01/30 00:50
I just became the interim worship leader at my church and I was looking for something to spice things up. I think this is it! I downloaded You'll Come by Hillsong and it was done great. I plan on using it this Sunday at church. The only improvement I can think of is the sheet music should be included in the download, in the arrangement it was recorded in. So people who are not as musically inclined do not have to think about how it will flow with the music. Other than that, Great App!
Great app
by JEFFMILLERMUSIC on 2013/01/22 03:46
Great app but needs more songs hands down! But love it. Also a good tutorial would be a help
Sweet!
by Pokekid62 on 2013/01/20 13:40
It's good,but not all of us are Christian.Let us use songs from our music library. Oh and ppl,how can you buy the app,when its FREEEEEEEEEEEEE?!
Not useful in so many ways
by gtrgal62 on 2013/01/03 05:14
The price is too much for small churches and unpaid musicians. The music is often inaccurate. Chord charts, actual music notation is better, but usually doesn't follow 'pop church' songs' arrangements. For me, worthless. For EACH and any song offered, I'd like to see background tax, real music notation for real musicians, option for simple lyrics and chords (for small home church group mtgs), and key transposition ability. The ability to make note/chord changes on the music would be great! Also nice would be Scripture passages the songs may coincide with, and optional suggestions for helpful church seasons or periscope use.
Not very good. Don't buy.
by zing zing zing on 2013/01/02 03:06
I don't mind paying 5 or 6 bucks for the audio and band tracks... But 2 bucks for bad chord charts is too much. Especially when they are not correct. I bought 2 tracks and 2 chord charts and neither chord chart was correct. Several of the chords didn't fit the tracks and most all the chord changes were not on beat. Don't know if it was formatted wrong when they did the charts. Formatting should have nothing to do with it since the chord charts are a PDF. Someone needs to check this stuff before selling it. I'm gonna try to get my money back.
Worship leader
by Jnapreacher on 2012/12/30 15:51
It would be great if you offered the lead sheet to the songs.This is a great app I will be using it today in our worship
Amazing!
by TimothyGa on 2012/12/26 14:54
I can't wait to use Band in Hand! We have several of our band members that will be out this Sunday and it will be so nice that we won't sacrifice quality due to missing parts.

The tool I've always thought of using and now on my iPad! This is going to be great. Needs more songs.
Great start......
by Derek_is_rad on 2012/12/20 16:43
The concept and execution of this app is amazing. Such an original and innovative tool to help in various settings where you don't have the man power. My only constructive criticisms would be the pricing of the songs, which for an unpaid worship leader definitely deters purchasing and the fact that you should look into allowing full key changes rather than just 1 full step up or down.

by Pastarock on 2012/12/19 22:25
Songs Are a little expensive!
Excellent!
by Forgert on 2012/12/19 16:39
For a musician without a band or a partial band this thing is so Great! Can change set up every time! And Prices for other bands to make a customizable song for YOUR particular worship setting, I think prices are very fair. Love the bundle pricing, would love to see more of that!
Great idea
by Cc2309 on 2012/12/06 22:27
I love the idea of this app. I just wish the prices were a bit lower so I could use it more often.
Link2Jesus is right/Lacks music diversity
by DevHonor on 2012/11/30 17:04
The idea of this app is so great, awesome really, however they give only one sample of a song to start out with, so you'd have to buy the rest. Which like Link2Jesus said is a tad bit one the pricey side . Don't get me wrong the money would be worth it (i could see this being really beneficial to my church , especially the youth) but this is so not in my budget.(^_^). Also songs look to be mostly contemporary Christian rock. So if you know you are mostly into gospel, or classic hymns this is not the app for you.
Great for Youth Ministry
by Jon Gross on 2012/11/28 14:43
This app is wonderful for youth ministry. I can download songs and turn up the volumes for what ever musicians I do not have that Wednesday night. Professionally recorded tracks sound great. However, I wish I was able to select which verses and which choruses I want to play and which ones I would like to repeat Like the Isingworship application lets me do. Also if this app could display lyrics abd chords on the screen and output lyrics to a TV that would just make my day.
Great for Small Churches
by TexasBear on 2017/10/22 22:00
I use this in our small church and it works great. When I have a guitarist, I can mute that instrument. When I am leading and know I won’t be able to devote my attention to keyboard, I can turn that layer on. The price of the songs seems reasonable, but it adds up. The same songs in multi tracks format ranges from $10 to $25 on other sites. The most I have seen in this app so far is $9.99. PLEASE add an auto login option. It is a pain and a distraction to have to login each time I open the app. It makes me sweat when I am on stage and I hope that my finder hits that login button in just the right spot.
A great worship accompany app!!!
by Sanbi team on 2018/07/30 14:19
I downloaded the app yesterday...and already up and running. The program was fairly intuitive, and easy to navigate. Just remember to save your settings by pushing the "download" button, or else you'll be using the unedited versions of the song. That was the trickiest part for me...but once I figured out the nuisances of the app....it was a breeze.
Worst
by Katie_Creep on 2017/11/14 12:49
Everything that you want/ need to make his app work needs to be purchased. A simple metronome on this app needs to be bought at he price of $1.99 which I think is over priced for a simple click on each beat. When you first download you have to again download another song just so you can do anything on the app. I hope my review helps you so that you don’t waste your time.
Please update!!!!!
by Laz3r on 2018/04/11 23:49
This app is awesome and obviously there are frequent users but it needs a stability update. I’ve had it crash during a few rehearsals by myself and it scares me to think that might happen in worship. I hope someone still monitors this thread and you guys can develop it.
Easy to use
by Fizzle Whiz on 2018/04/15 15:18
For the tech challenged musicians/worship leader, this is a great solution. It is easy the use and modify the songs and song sets. For a reasonable monthly fee, you can upload custom songs and loops.
Password reset??
by CoolCoxFamily on 2017/08/27 14:49
I have not used the app in a while due to live music. However I have forgotten my password and want to reset it. How do I do so?
Reset password
by Sing4Him! on 2017/06/08 01:47
How can I reset my password? I haven't used the app in awhile and don't remember my password.
App Does not work
by Golden freddy faz bear on 2018/09/28 22:39
All mine does is say rotate device to access mixer I try to rotate it but does not work. Don’t wast your time...
Awesome concept, needs some tweaks.
by Medge Guitars on 2012/06/05 16:41
This app is an awesome concept. However I echo the thoughts of other reviews, the price per song is just too high. This might not be the case if the tracks had more versatility. For example, being able to truly change keys in a real range of keys, not simply 'auto-tuning' the track into another key. That alone limits it use capabilities for those of us don't have the greatest of voices and need to play around with keys before preforming the songs. Another issue I saw with the app was that you are stuck with the version of the song that is recorded in their arrangement. While I don't think this is a bad thing, it would be helpful to have the exact sheet music or chord charts to go along with the arrangements that were recored. This would save potentially hours of time making sure that one has the proper arrangement with all the proper chords for that particular song. Perhaps access to an online database with that information, along with a simple lyric sheet for turning it into slides. I think with those improvements, I wouldn't mind paying $5.99 or more for a song because it would have the flexibility most of us need for such an app. Again, it's an awesome concept and could be a huge benefit for a lot of people if it simply had a few additions. Keep up the good work!
Good but has problems
by Rikki Mikki on 2014/08/31 11:41
I've been using worshipbandinhand for several weeks now. The features are pretty good. I enjoy the prices of the individual songs. Since we are a small church with no sound guy, I needed something I could run from the stage and this fit the bill nicely. Also, I love the prices of individual songs and we are deep in the lifewayworship ecosystem so there are lots of good choices for us. However, there are a several serious issues I wish could be addressed: 1) It takes too many clicks to move from one setlist song to the next. 2) You can't delete a song once it is downloaded. 3) I'm regularly experiencing "connection failed" errors when trying to download content. 4) Often, the recording layouts don't exactly match our arrangement. I can move sections of the song around (which is awesome) but I can't remove any of them (which is very limiting if I want to shorten a tune in a long playlist). Also, I'd love to be able to import stems from other sources or add my own tracks to the ones provided for each song...
On the right track.
by brolgray on 2012/05/24 05:20
I first downloaded this app shortly after it released and was blown away with how great an idea it was. Then, I was blown away with the price of the songs...$9.99 per song!!! No way was I going to pay that. It sat as dead space on my phone for a while until I deleted it. Curiosity drew me back to it a few days ago. I was not quite as blown away when I saw the prices this time. $5.99 is still a bit pricy, but a whole lot more reasonable that $9.99. I was discouraged a little when I came back to write this review and saw SALE in huge letters. It makes me think that if this app gains popularity, they'll jack the prices back up. I'd give em 5 stars if they'd drop on down to $1.99 or maybe even $2.99 per song and possibly throw lyrics or at least arrangement maps in there. But then again...with lifewayworship involved now, I'm sure prices won't stay low for long. This app has the potential to be a favorite in my phone if they'll keep prices reasonable.
Not quite there yet.
by cahva on 2012/04/12 15:35
Would have preferred to send an e-mail rather than post publicly but there is no way to contact you - not even from the "support" link above. You lost 2.5 stars for isolating yourself from your users. Btw, Facebook is for marketing not support. On to the app - it's a good app and will serve some worship leaders I'm sure. However, since you purchased rights to the music, I can't understand why you didn't include a scroll of words - words and chords would be 5 star worthy - just in case that a leader loses his/her place in the song while wrangling all the requirements that a leader has: singing, playing, looking at the congregation, listening to the Spirit, etc. etc. The faders could be shortened without compromising function too allow space. Did I miss something or is there a way to use the click but keep it out of the house mix? Truly an app on the way, but not quite there yet. A true support link with a contact address would be a huge step forward as well.
Sweet and . . .
by rpm2yrjm on 2012/06/08 22:24
This app is an excellent concept and one many of us solo leaders have wanted for some time! The song selection is good, though there is certainly room for expansion. The arrangements are solid and well done. The price of each track is understandable for the amount of work and effort of the artists involved. The flexibility of key has a nice start, but could be extended further. One suggestion that has yet to be seen is the possible flexibility in tempo. Some of the arrangements at their current tempo would make a difficult transition into a time of prayer/reflection for the group being led. This is certainly a valuable tool/app and expect to see more developments with each successive version. Certainly, it won't stop here.
Really Good... For the most part.
by smcelyea on 2013/03/04 02:17
I do like the program. The songs are mostly good. A broader selection of genre would be great. I would like a program I could buy that integrates with the app that would allow me to produce my own music on my MAC. I do however feel that for the price of the track, the music chart for the arrangement should be INCLUDED! THAT is my only real complaint. I even bit the bullet and BOUGHT a chart IT WAS NOT EVEN THE SAME!!! I could write my own chart, but for the convince the track provides, the chart should be a PDF download WITH the purchase. It will be interesting to see how things develop now that Media Shout is in the mix. Keep up the good work.
More suggestions...
by Little may may! on 2013/06/11 02:14
Love this app and the potential it has to transform my worship ministry. Here are a few suggestions: 1. Consistent vocal count-in's and prep beats. Some songs have a vocal count in and some don't. This would be sweet! 2. Some of the fills at the end of the songs are too long. A couple of the songs vamp the final chord for 25-30 seconds. My church "isn't quite there yet", so I either have to have someone fade out the track (usually me) or juggle hymnals until the vamp / famata ends. Gets a bit awkward. 3. Allow the importation of mp3's to the BNH app. This would allow me to use the clicks and loops that I already have, without having to go to another app to use them for songs that I don't have BNH stems for. I would be willing to pay for an enhanced BNH app for this option! 4. Keep building your library! Tomlin, Passion, Hillsongs, Gateway, North Point, etc! Thank you for this app and for helping me give my best in worship each week!
Good working on great.
by Tuna Mac on 2012/05/27 20:05
Price per songs the biggest hurdle for this app. I fully appreciate the effort and time per tune that goes into each track ... but sales volume should increase w/more attainable pricing. Possible a yearly "subscription" option might be helpful to infuse the developer w/additional funding as well. Bottom line ... avoid the temptation to try to make it all back as quickly as possible. This could easily become a MUST HAVE app for smaller churches, youth retreats and other church events like memorial services, weddings ... any event where fielding a full band is difficult. I'm excited to see where this app goes!
App is good but....
by Wadev3 on 2013/03/04 03:08
This is a cool app and definitely makes worship easier when people in our band have to be gone. Couple suggestions though... One- there needs to be a way to bounce the mixed track down so I can load an mp3 or whatever into my sheet music program. (Can't have both aps open at once) but my sheet music program will play linked tracks. Two- would be nice to be able to take the click out but still get a count off. Three- would be nice to be able to change the bpm up or down somewhat. Four - I would have given this app more stars if the prices were less expensive. I know it takes work to make these tracks but $9 is way too much for one song that I may just use the drum track on. CHEAPER PRICES PLEASE! Five - would be good to be able to flip arrangements (drag an extra chorus or change the chorus and bridge around) I know that would require a lot more than what it sounds but it would be cool.
Cannot Play
by rudiin on 2015/10/24 17:57
I grabbed this app because I thought it would be a nice way for me to practice with some background accompaniment. I still believe that. However, I have found that I am unable to play the music. In your screenshots I see the blue buttons for play and tempo adjustments, etc. - but I just have a grey bar with nothing on it. I have power cycled as well as updated to latest 9.1 iOS. I would love to try it out but cannot.
Great
by Mrpowers623 on 2013/01/30 00:50
I just became the interim worship leader at my church and I was looking for something to spice things up. I think this is it! I downloaded You'll Come by Hillsong and it was done great. I plan on using it this Sunday at church. The only improvement I can think of is the sheet music should be included in the download, in the arrangement it was recorded in. So people who are not as musically inclined do not have to think about how it will flow with the music. Other than that, Great App!
#bandinhand
by Randybrown237 on 2013/03/18 02:43
Wow this app has saved me a couple of weeks in a row. 1st week had no drummer, put the click in the ears of the bass and electric guitar players and off we went. Week 2 I used it by myself and it was a hit. Perfect app for small churches and worship venues. Could use some improvement, but if your looking for that type of option try ableton live. Great job guys. Thanks for your commitment to helping worship leaders do it better.

by Kihgdtujf on 2013/03/17 00:27
I enjoy the program and the ability to mute an instrument or just the ability to turn down an instrument. I really would like to have a lead singer so that I can know where to come in...just for practice mode. Also, I would like to see the program to have the ability to change key wayyyyyy more then what it does now. Songs are bit expensive, as well. Otherwise I would have rated you five stars.
Great for small church
by CREated59 on 2014/03/09 16:00
I have been using this for several months now. We use it in our worship services. We don't have a worship band so this adds to the fullness of the music. I'm not sure what the problem is for multiple devices. I use it on the church's iPad and my own. I do agree that the prices are kind of high on some songs. Fortunately they have bundles and some $4-7 songs.
Can be better!!!
by LANTMUSIC on 2013/08/18 23:42
I liked the update that lets us send click to left, right, and both....but can you add an option where I can send the click with the mix on left for in ears, and still get the mix alone for the house on the right...it will be more like a stereo click track that we can pan it...that will help us a lot specially if having an small sound system and our in ear are very limited....God Bless
Not useful in so many ways
by gtrgal62 on 2013/01/03 05:14
The price is too much for small churches and unpaid musicians. The music is often inaccurate. Chord charts, actual music notation is better, but usually doesn't follow 'pop church' songs' arrangements. For me, worthless. For EACH and any song offered, I'd like to see background tax, real music notation for real musicians, option for simple lyrics and chords (for small home church group mtgs), and key transposition ability. The ability to make note/chord changes on the music would be great! Also nice would be Scripture passages the songs may coincide with, and optional suggestions for helpful church seasons or periscope use.
Great start......

Not very good. Don't buy.
by zing zing zing on 2013/01/02 03:06
I don't mind paying 5 or 6 bucks for the audio and band tracks... But 2 bucks for bad chord charts is too much. Especially when they are not correct. I bought 2 tracks and 2 chord charts and neither chord chart was correct. Several of the chords didn't fit the tracks and most all the chord changes were not on beat. Don't know if it was formatted wrong when they did the charts. Formatting should have nothing to do with it since the chord charts are a PDF. Someone needs to check this stuff before selling it. I'm gonna try to get my money back.
Love this App but need help asap...
by MandaMae123 on 2015/04/15 02:38
This app is great and was working great on my iPhone AND my iPad, then it updated and now I cannot log into my account on my iPhone. I used both iPhone and iPad to run the app for the longest time and now can only use my iPad. I have $76 invested in the app and songs so far and I NEED to be able to use both devices. Someone please fix this problem!!!!
Very helpful
by THE TIZMO on 2013/08/07 21:31
This app has been a great help to our church's worship experience. I love the ability to chose several keys. The only suggestion I have is that they some how allow you to change the order of the song in order to make it longer or shorter. Besides that the play is stellar.
Great App!
by ChrisRamosMusic on 2013/02/09 07:44
This has really revolutionized the way I do worship. The days of hunting down someone to help out on a last moments notice or when a worship team member can't make it for whatever reason are gone. This is such a valuable tool for worship leaders of a big worship teams as well as someone on their own. Kudos!!!
Great App - songs are $6 each
by ShdAllStr on 2012/09/12 13:45
This is a great app. Each song in the available library varies in price but is about $6 on avg. There are a few set lists. I'd love to see an option to buy the whole list, like a 'lifetime' purchase option - even if it is expensive.
Pretty good.
by Bruin-55 on 2015/05/24 05:13
I don't know why people are complaining about the price per song. If you look up any loop website, they are usually $20-30 per song, so this isn't bad. And $9 a song isn't much for someone who is serious about worship music stuff. And the low price kinda explains some of the lower quality samples..
Great app!!!!
by Dandy handyman on 2012/11/05 22:32
I love the idea and I love the way it works. There are so many ways to make one song fit your congregation. Works great when just singing together. Very hard if impossible to make it work when following Holy Spirit in worship service, can't replace the musician filled with Holy Spirit.
Fantastic!!!!
by WorshipMan87 on 2012/10/16 02:09
I came upon this app at the 2012 Experience Conference in Orlando, FL. I use it when my musicians are either slip in numbers or they are all busy since they occasionally work Sunday nights. I absolutely love it!! It works fantastically for my purposes and I highly recommend it to any other musician who leads worship!
Suggestion
by starjeremie on 2015/12/18 05:18
I like the new version much better but I would like to see if we can be able to get vocal background in all the songs and if you can put the tempo up or down like you did for the key change. The best app ever
Love it!
by kuhraig on 2013/03/16 04:47
Great app! Perfect for when I lead in smaller venues with a smaller band but want to keep the same full sound that we have on our main stage. Songs and sounds are high quality, and I don't mind paying for this kind of quality. Keep the standards high!
Don't waste your time
by Leterrip on 2015/11/14 22:45
This app used to work really well and all of a sudden, the play button has disappeared. It has really been a problem for us, as we are a small church and used Band In Hand almost every Sunday. Now it's useless. Bought a bunch of songs that we cannot use. Oh yeah, and don't try to use their "contact" tab, I tried that too, and absoluetly "no reply." Not a good way to sell your product.
A little disappointed.
by Brownsville Chica on 2015/01/28 21:09
For some reason I'm able to log in to my account on a desktop. But the ios app never accepts my password. That stinks because the whole point for me was to be able to use my iPad for worship service. Also, songs are pricey. We are a small church. Why don't you charge a monthly fee based on church size? So that way songs could be free, or at least at a great discount.
Excellent!
by Forgert on 2012/12/19 16:39
For a musician without a band or a partial band this thing is so Great! Can change set up every time! And Prices for other bands to make a customizable song for YOUR particular worship setting, I think prices are very fair. Love the bundle pricing, would love to see more of that!
Great worship app and tool but too expensive
by Link2Jesus on 2013/03/13 16:14
Overall wonderful app and tool but prices are way too high for the average small church. Just downloading 10-15 songs can cost over $100. Please consider offering lower and better pricing or small church or group rates. Thank you for your hard work.
Love it.... But
by Natetastic on 2013/02/27 17:18
Ok so this app blew my mind when i first heard about it. I can definitely see myself using this to help lead worship at church. But how are the prices going to help compete against the split track prices of iTunes? 1.29 or 7.99 hmmm iTunes sounds better for now. But i will still try and take advantage of this app!!! I love it
Great for the youth ministry
by NewKid on 2012/08/15 03:17
I've been wanting a youth praise band at our church for sometime now. This is a great app that doesn't require hours upon hours of setup. If you've ever lead worship solo, pick up this app and a few songs and let everyone wonder how you are doing it!
GREAT price!
by RVEly on 2013/05/20 12:58
The people who are complaining about the prices of the songs don't know the industry. I used Ableton with another multitrack supplier and the prices are $39 per song. The $5 - 10 per song with Band In Hand is actually a VERY reasonable alternative! I'm thankful for it.
Almost...
by Tonedog2112 on 2012/08/27 23:25
I just wish it had tabs for the instrumentation similar to Jammit, these are all the songs I wanna learn to play and having the tracks separate out like this it would amazing, maybe I'm missing the point of this app of subbing for a band. But this could be a really awesome learning tool to use. If you could skip into sections of songs.
Great app idea, but...
by joko360 on 2013/08/14 03:27
like other reviewers wrote, you buy each song individually at $9.99, kinda pricey for building a music library, even with nice features. Also you have to log into app each time, kinda lame. Also would be nice if you could lengthen or shorten a song for when your worship team wants to add or shorten songs. Aside from these things; good app overall.
Perfect for worship
by Oldrumguy on 2013/08/03 20:55
Just recently looking at doing a mobile worship gig and this works great for me to mute or not depending on who shows up to play live if someone can't make it I resort to this to play their parts without them.
Worship Drummer
by Chris_Allen_21 on 2013/04/21 17:46
Great app, agree that it would be nice if there were some sort of a discount for smaller churches because buying songs here does get pricey. Also wish that I could download this app onto my MacBook instead of having to use my phone. Thanks!
Greatest band in box app yet!
by michaelsstreet on 2012/07/18 18:21
This is the app I have been waiting for. I can use it for youth and supplement with live players or vice versa. Quality is great and the songs follow the normal order of the song so you can download the chord chart from CCLI.

App Does not work
by Golden freddy faz bear on 2018/09/28 22:39
All mine does is say rotate device to access mixer I try to rotate it but does not work. Don’t wast your time...
A great worship accompany app!!!
by Sanbi team on 2018/07/30 14:19
I downloaded the app yesterday...and already up and running. The program was fairly intuitive, and easy to navigate. Just remember to save your settings by pushing the "download" button, or else you'll be using the unedited versions of the song. That was the trickiest part for me...but once I figured out the nuisances of the app....it was a breeze.
Easy to use
by Fizzle Whiz on 2018/04/15 15:18
For the tech challenged musicians/worship leader, this is a great solution. It is easy the use and modify the songs and song sets. For a reasonable monthly fee, you can upload custom songs and loops.
Please update!!!!!
by Laz3r on 2018/04/11 23:49
This app is awesome and obviously there are frequent users but it needs a stability update. I’ve had it crash during a few rehearsals by myself and it scares me to think that might happen in worship. I hope someone still monitors this thread and you guys can develop it.
Worst
by Katie_Creep on 2017/11/14 12:49
Everything that you want/ need to make his app work needs to be purchased. A simple metronome on this app needs to be bought at he price of $1.99 which I think is over priced for a simple click on each beat. When you first download you have to again download another song just so you can do anything on the app. I hope my review helps you so that you don’t waste your time.
Great for Small Churches
by TexasBear on 2017/10/22 22:00
I use this in our small church and it works great. When I have a guitarist, I can mute that instrument. When I am leading and know I won’t be able to devote my attention to keyboard, I can turn that layer on. The price of the songs seems reasonable, but it adds up. The same songs in multi tracks format ranges from $10 to $25 on other sites. The most I have seen in this app so far is $9.99. PLEASE add an auto login option. It is a pain and a distraction to have to login each time I open the app. It makes me sweat when I am on stage and I hope that my finder hits that login button in just the right spot.
Password reset??
by CoolCoxFamily on 2017/08/27 14:49
I have not used the app in a while due to live music. However I have forgotten my password and want to reset it. How do I do so?
Reset password
by Sing4Him! on 2017/06/08 01:47
How can I reset my password? I haven't used the app in awhile and don't remember my password.
App won't even let me login

Only Crash
by GodwastheWord on 2015/12/28 16:25
Of course I downloaded the upgrade on Saturday night; Big no-no. App won't even open!!! Used an old phone to get me through Sunday morning. App is a great idea, but useless if I can't count on it. I've spent a lot of money on songs that I can't get to in the current version. Please make it dependable.
Suggestion
by starjeremie on 2015/12/18 05:18
I like the new version much better but I would like to see if we can be able to get vocal background in all the songs and if you can put the tempo up or down like you did for the key change. The best app ever
Crash crash
by Whaleyco on 2015/12/05 01:14
Won't even open on iPhone 6 Plus with iOS 9.1. Seems to work on the iPad.
Don't waste your time
by Leterrip on 2015/11/14 22:45
This app used to work really well and all of a sudden, the play button has disappeared. It has really been a problem for us, as we are a small church and used Band In Hand almost every Sunday. Now it's useless. Bought a bunch of songs that we cannot use. Oh yeah, and don't try to use their "contact" tab, I tried that too, and absoluetly "no reply." Not a good way to sell your product.
Cannot Play
by rudiin on 2015/10/24 17:57
I grabbed this app because I thought it would be a nice way for me to practice with some background accompaniment. I still believe that. However, I have found that I am unable to play the music. In your screenshots I see the blue buttons for play and tempo adjustments, etc. - but I just have a grey bar with nothing on it. I have power cycled as well as updated to latest 9.1 iOS. I would love to try it out but cannot.
Pretty good.
by Bruin-55 on 2015/05/24 05:13
I don't know why people are complaining about the price per song. If you look up any loop website, they are usually $20-30 per song, so this isn't bad. And $9 a song isn't much for someone who is serious about worship music stuff. And the low price kinda explains some of the lower quality samples..
Great idea but ...
by XoT3K on 2015/05/03 15:44
Dang, the downloads a very cost-prohibitive.
Love this App but need help asap...
by MandaMae123 on 2015/04/15 02:38
This app is great and was working great on my iPhone AND my iPad, then it updated and now I cannot log into my account on my iPhone. I used both iPhone and iPad to run the app for the longest time and now can only use my iPad. I have $76 invested in the app and songs so far and I NEED to be able to use both devices. Someone please fix this problem!!!!
Terrible
by Aric999 on 2015/04/03 01:25
this app is great at being terrible! 10 out of 10! Best Way to waste money! The prices are amazingly low at only $9.00 a song!
God's gift to church software
by walker.owsley on 2015/03/02 21:52
This is a great app! A must have for any worship leaders out there!
$9.00 per song uh.....no
by &*(chuck on 2015/02/08 06:50
cant see paying that much per song. Even if I bundled its still to expensive. Great app, bad business plan.
A little disappointed.
by Brownsville Chica on 2015/01/28 21:09
For some reason I'm able to log in to my account on a desktop. But the ios app never accepts my password. That stinks because the whole point for me was to be able to use my iPad for worship service. Also, songs are pricey. We are a small church. Why don't you charge a monthly fee based on church size? So that way songs could be free, or at least at a great discount.
Great but have suggestions
by Psch on 2015/01/17 15:09
Would like to suggest : 1) split screen with the mixer and music parts 2) the quality of the drums are poor 3) would like a better click sound. More clear 4) when you have a playlist and plays it, the time to end a song and load the next one is too long. Paulo
This App Drives Me Crazy!
by Rotten53 on 2014/10/14 03:51
About every other time I use this app there is an issue. If I didn't absolutely need it for worship, I'd drop it like a hot potato!
Problems with iOS8
by ChuckHarris3 on 2014/09/19 22:00
I love you app but since the iOS update the keyboard pops up in the mixer. It doesn't let you hide the keyboard either. Please update soon!!!
Good idea but poorly executed
by Bgs1987 on 2014/09/14 13:25
This app is a good idea, however it is poorly executed. The recorded instruments sound like 64 or 96kbps bitrate, so the quality is poor. This makes the instruments sound fake. I don't think this is worth the money.
Good but has problems
by Rikki Mikki on 2014/08/31 11:41
I've been using worshipbandinhand for several weeks now. The features are pretty good. I enjoy the prices of the individual songs. Since we are a small church with no sound guy, I needed something I could run from the stage and this fit the bill nicely. Also, I love the prices of individual songs and we are deep in the lifewayworship ecosystem so there are lots of good choices for us. However, there are a several serious issues I wish could be addressed: 1) It takes too many clicks to move from one setlist song to the next. 2) You can't delete a song once it is downloaded. 3) I'm regularly experiencing "connection failed" errors when trying to download content. 4) Often, the recording layouts don't exactly match our arrangement. I can move sections of the song around (which is awesome) but I can't remove any of them (which is very limiting if I want to shorten a tune in a long playlist). Also, I'd love to be able to import stems from other sources or add my own tracks to the ones provided for each song...
Great app.
by bojo1498 on 2014/08/26 12:10
Super awesome and really easy to use.
Not bad but
by Miguelsuits.net on 2014/07/14 05:56
So every one likes this app I guess, but the music is one sided. I would like to use the app for praise and worship but my church music style is completely different. We use more organ and kit vs string heavy.
Great
by Larry(hammer) on 2014/06/25 01:41
Good app for practice or a single performer.
Lame; unintuitive; waste of time
by Timasato on 2014/04/16 22:24
Do not waste your time.
Great for small church
by CREated59 on 2014/03/09 16:00
I have been using this for several months now. We use it in our worship services. We don't have a worship band so this adds to the fullness of the music. I'm not sure what the problem is for multiple devices. I use it on the church's iPad and my own. I do agree that the prices are kind of high on some songs. Fortunately they have bundles and some $4-7 songs.
Great concept!
by hardrocker828 on 2014/03/05 22:46
Great concept, but the prices for songs are super high 19 dollars for Arms Open wide?
Great
by Jr244 on 2014/02/09 22:47
It is freaking great for my worship ministry great job
Can only authorize one system
by runneorun on 2014/02/09 01:50
Absolutely ridiculous that I cannot open the app on my iPhone and iPad. So if I authorize one system I can't open it on the other. I think I pay enough for these tracks to get at least 3 authorizations, just like iTunes allows. I've had the app for a couple years now and have appreciated the upgrades, but I'm close to abandoning it now.
Great App!!!!
by Hanncam on 2013/12/28 13:42
We needed extra "filler" instruments to create that full bodied sound and we got them with this app! It really delivers! Can't wait for more songs!!!
AMAZING!! The best app for churches yet!
by RevMattHall on 2013/12/21 20:40
This has changed how we do worship. We can now offer worship on a professional level. What a great Idea!!
BIH app
by harlod m on 2013/09/19 19:21
App crashes every other time I open. Tracks are ok but not great. Songs are way over priced. Just buy logic and make your own. After 10 songs you've payed for logic at $20 a song.
Can be better!!!
by LANTMUSIC on 2013/08/18 23:42
I liked the update that lets us send click to left, right, and both....but can you add an option where I can send the click with the mix on left for in ears, and still get the mix alone for the house on the right...it will be more like a stereo click track that we can pan it...that will help us a lot specially if having an small sound system and our in ear are very limited....God Bless
Great app idea, but...
by joko360 on 2013/08/14 03:27
like other reviewers wrote, you buy each song individually at $9.99, kinda pricey for building a music library, even with nice features. Also you have to log into app each time, kinda lame. Also would be nice if you could lengthen or shorten a song for when your worship team wants to add or shorten songs. Aside from these things; good app overall.
Very helpful
by THE TIZMO on 2013/08/07 21:31
This app has been a great help to our church's worship experience. I love the ability to chose several keys. The only suggestion I have is that they some how allow you to change the order of the song in order to make it longer or shorter. Besides that the play is stellar.
What a rip-off!
by Pokemon Fan20 on 2013/08/04 17:00
I got it and you have to make some stupid account just to get in and you have to download more songs to even use it. I deleted it as soon as I got it. What a ripoff!
Perfect for worship
by Oldrumguy on 2013/08/03 20:55
Just recently looking at doing a mobile worship gig and this works great for me to mute or not depending on who shows up to play live if someone can't make it I resort to this to play their parts without them.
Great app!!
by Joetheworshipguy on 2013/07/21 23:21
This app is great! Especially if your just wanting to learn to play with a track as a team or a solo artist! I only gave it 4 stars cause the songs are rather pricey and you have to by them separately! But over all great application!
Excelent
by tellocruz on 2013/07/07 01:14
Great app
Nice app, but songs are too expensive
by Good for my small business. on 2013/06/23 19:56
We are missionaries in Mexico, and due to the high prices of the songs, it does not help at all. The app is nice, but not affortable for us serving the Lord in a low budget. With the price of a few albums I could buy a full instrument.
More suggestions...
by Little may may! on 2013/06/11 02:14
Love this app and the potential it has to transform my worship ministry. Here are a few suggestions: 1. Consistent vocal count-in's and prep beats. Some songs have a vocal count in and some don't. This would be sweet! 2. Some of the fills at the end of the songs are too long. A couple of the songs vamp the final chord for 25-30 seconds. My church "isn't quite there yet", so I either have to have someone fade out the track (usually me) or juggle hymnals until the vamp / famata ends. Gets a bit awkward. 3. Allow the importation of mp3's to the BNH app. This would allow me to use the clicks and loops that I already have, without having to go to another app to use them for songs that I don't have BNH stems for. I would be willing to pay for an enhanced BNH app for this option! 4. Keep building your library! Tomlin, Passion, Hillsongs, Gateway, North Point, etc! Thank you for this app and for helping me give my best in worship each week!
Good tool but drained Battery
by Discniple13 on 2013/05/24 03:29
I have used it a couple times and its a good tool but my phone battery is drained much faster after installing it... Even when it's not in use!
Needs work
by teosails on 2013/05/22 10:15
The mixer is great but without having a lead sheet it is hard to play along. Also, I haven't figured out how to access the addition song list from the app. This app is a great idea but it needs some work.
GREAT price!
by RVEly on 2013/05/20 12:58
The people who are complaining about the prices of the songs don't know the industry. I used Ableton with another multitrack supplier and the prices are $39 per song. The $5 - 10 per song with Band In Hand is actually a VERY reasonable alternative! I'm thankful for it.
$10 for a song!??
by Factmanfowler on 2013/05/18 04:19
I love what the app does, but $10 a song is crazy!
Too expensive
by VanKeulen Family on 2013/05/16 20:30
Great idea! I was really excited about it. Until I opened the website and found that songs average from $7-10 dollars. Really. 10 buck for a song. I'll do it the old fashioned way with the cd.
Excellent
by bryanlaramore on 2013/05/04 21:28

App Store?
by Gare0611 on 2013/05/01 16:24

Great but need more songs
by Stephansms on 2013/04/30 11:30
This is a Great app but need more songs to do.
Bad update.
by ts_peach on 2013/04/29 04:15
It's a simple clean way to add looping to your worship teams. I have liked it mostly. However I am not a fan of the removal of the song store from the app. I'm guessing you now need to go to a web site to get the songs.... Why?
Amazing app
by Thebeve on 2013/04/26 00:38
I love this app!
Seriously...
by Jason DeBerry on 2013/04/23 23:20
I just purchased iTunes cards specifically for this app and am no longer able to use them. Waste of money.
Store gone
by etriv89 on 2013/04/22 15:02
Since the new update ,the store to purchases new songs is gone...making the app rather worthless
I hate the update
by sandbar17 on 2013/04/22 12:35
The app is great, on the precious version I could shop for songs in app. Now I have to go to the website to shop. Absolutely not convenient.
Worship Drummer
by Chris_Allen_21 on 2013/04/21 17:46
Great app, agree that it would be nice if there were some sort of a discount for smaller churches because buying songs here does get pricey. Also wish that I could download this app onto my MacBook instead of having to use my phone. Thanks!
Great idea! Prices not so great.
by flstcman on 2013/03/20 02:33
This looks like an awesome app that I would love to use BUT the song prices have convinced me that now is not the time.
Stinks

#bandinhand
by Randybrown237 on 2013/03/18 02:43
Wow this app has saved me a couple of weeks in a row. 1st week had no drummer, put the click in the ears of the bass and electric guitar players and off we went. Week 2 I used it by myself and it was a hit. Perfect app for small churches and worship venues. Could use some improvement, but if your looking for that type of option try ableton live. Great job guys. Thanks for your commitment to helping worship leaders do it better.
Nice
by kb8zks on 2013/03/17 04:39
Good app. Good sound. Prices are fair, but selection needs improvement. Would love to see this accessible on a desktop, too.
Suggestion
by Kihgdtujf on 2013/03/17 00:27
I enjoy the program and the ability to mute an instrument or just the ability to turn down an instrument. I really would like to have a lead singer so that I can know where to come in...just for practice mode. Also, I would like to see the program to have the ability to change key wayyyyyy more then what it does now. Songs are bit expensive, as well. Otherwise I would have rated you five stars.
Love it!
by kuhraig on 2013/03/16 04:47
Great app! Perfect for when I lead in smaller venues with a smaller band but want to keep the same full sound that we have on our main stage. Songs and sounds are high quality, and I don't mind paying for this kind of quality. Keep the standards high!

by Ghw3 on 2013/03/14 02:21
I agree with other reviews...lower song prices for small churches!!
Really like it. (But expensive)
by Beezybe on 2013/03/13 18:24
Really cool. But songs are really, really expensive.
Great worship app and tool but too expensive
by Link2Jesus on 2013/03/13 16:14
Overall wonderful app and tool but prices are way too high for the average small church. Just downloading 10-15 songs can cost over $100. Please consider offering lower and better pricing or small church or group rates. Thank you for your hard work.
Great app, minor flaws
by movieman120 on 2013/03/11 05:21
Prices for songs NEEDS to be cheaper, if not then at least like 1 free song every week or something
App is good but....
by Wadev3 on 2013/03/04 03:08
This is a cool app and definitely makes worship easier when people in our band have to be gone. Couple suggestions though... One- there needs to be a way to bounce the mixed track down so I can load an mp3 or whatever into my sheet music program. (Can't have both aps open at once) but my sheet music program will play linked tracks. Two- would be nice to be able to take the click out but still get a count off. Three- would be nice to be able to change the bpm up or down somewhat. Four - I would have given this app more stars if the prices were less expensive. I know it takes work to make these tracks but $9 is way too much for one song that I may just use the drum track on. CHEAPER PRICES PLEASE! Five - would be good to be able to flip arrangements (drag an extra chorus or change the chorus and bridge around) I know that would require a lot more than what it sounds but it would be cool.
Really Good... For the most part.
by smcelyea on 2013/03/04 02:17
I do like the program. The songs are mostly good. A broader selection of genre would be great. I would like a program I could buy that integrates with the app that would allow me to produce my own music on my MAC. I do however feel that for the price of the track, the music chart for the arrangement should be INCLUDED! THAT is my only real complaint. I even bit the bullet and BOUGHT a chart IT WAS NOT EVEN THE SAME!!! I could write my own chart, but for the convince the track provides, the chart should be a PDF download WITH the purchase. It will be interesting to see how things develop now that Media Shout is in the mix. Keep up the good work.
Great
by iainvelez on 2013/02/28 16:09
I love how this app helps me train my team and allows me to not have to compromise. When one of my musicians isn't ready or when I'm lacking an instrument I can just use this app. I do with they had more of a selection though.
Love it.... But
by Natetastic on 2013/02/27 17:18
Ok so this app blew my mind when i first heard about it. I can definitely see myself using this to help lead worship at church. But how are the prices going to help compete against the split track prices of iTunes? 1.29 or 7.99 hmmm iTunes sounds better for now. But i will still try and take advantage of this app!!! I love it
Great
by Mdogg4him on 2013/02/26 23:56
Lovin it so far
More FREE songs please
by Zonafyde on 2013/02/26 16:58
This app is good but all of the free songs I never heard of. Prices are kind of expensive. But overall I think the app is good.
Need MORE songs!!
by Tweet: @pastorc_arbc on 2013/02/21 23:30
App is great for worship teams with limited instrumentalists. My only request is that they crank out more song selections faster! We need MORE songs!! :)

by jasonkindrix on 2013/02/18 18:12

Awesome tool for worship
by RanCyn on 2013/02/11 18:22
Very helpful for background music and "fillin"
Great App!
by ChrisRamosMusic on 2013/02/09 07:44
This has really revolutionized the way I do worship. The days of hunting down someone to help out on a last moments notice or when a worship team member can't make it for whatever reason are gone. This is such a valuable tool for worship leaders of a big worship teams as well as someone on their own. Kudos!!!
Good idea
by Small church on 2013/02/02 07:19
I like the premise of this app. Not a lot of help, or information.
Great
by Mrpowers623 on 2013/01/30 00:50
I just became the interim worship leader at my church and I was looking for something to spice things up. I think this is it! I downloaded You'll Come by Hillsong and it was done great. I plan on using it this Sunday at church. The only improvement I can think of is the sheet music should be included in the download, in the arrangement it was recorded in. So people who are not as musically inclined do not have to think about how it will flow with the music. Other than that, Great App!
Great app
by JEFFMILLERMUSIC on 2013/01/22 03:46
Great app but needs more songs hands down! But love it. Also a good tutorial would be a help
Sweet!
by Pokekid62 on 2013/01/20 13:40
It's good,but not all of us are Christian.Let us use songs from our music library. Oh and ppl,how can you buy the app,when its FREEEEEEEEEEEEE?!
Not useful in so many ways
by gtrgal62 on 2013/01/03 05:14
The price is too much for small churches and unpaid musicians. The music is often inaccurate. Chord charts, actual music notation is better, but usually doesn't follow 'pop church' songs' arrangements. For me, worthless. For EACH and any song offered, I'd like to see background tax, real music notation for real musicians, option for simple lyrics and chords (for small home church group mtgs), and key transposition ability. The ability to make note/chord changes on the music would be great! Also nice would be Scripture passages the songs may coincide with, and optional suggestions for helpful church seasons or periscope use.
Not very good. Don't buy.
by zing zing zing on 2013/01/02 03:06
I don't mind paying 5 or 6 bucks for the audio and band tracks... But 2 bucks for bad chord charts is too much. Especially when they are not correct. I bought 2 tracks and 2 chord charts and neither chord chart was correct. Several of the chords didn't fit the tracks and most all the chord changes were not on beat. Don't know if it was formatted wrong when they did the charts. Formatting should have nothing to do with it since the chord charts are a PDF. Someone needs to check this stuff before selling it. I'm gonna try to get my money back.
Worship leader
by Jnapreacher on 2012/12/30 15:51
It would be great if you offered the lead sheet to the songs.This is a great app I will be using it today in our worship
Amazing!
by TimothyGa on 2012/12/26 14:54
I can't wait to use Band in Hand! We have several of our band members that will be out this Sunday and it will be so nice that we won't sacrifice quality due to missing parts.

Great start......
by Derek_is_rad on 2012/12/20 16:43
The concept and execution of this app is amazing. Such an original and innovative tool to help in various settings where you don't have the man power. My only constructive criticisms would be the pricing of the songs, which for an unpaid worship leader definitely deters purchasing and the fact that you should look into allowing full key changes rather than just 1 full step up or down.

Excellent!
by Forgert on 2012/12/19 16:39
For a musician without a band or a partial band this thing is so Great! Can change set up every time! And Prices for other bands to make a customizable song for YOUR particular worship setting, I think prices are very fair. Love the bundle pricing, would love to see more of that!
Great idea
by Cc2309 on 2012/12/06 22:27
I love the idea of this app. I just wish the prices were a bit lower so I could use it more often.
Link2Jesus is right/Lacks music diversity
by DevHonor on 2012/11/30 17:04
The idea of this app is so great, awesome really, however they give only one sample of a song to start out with, so you'd have to buy the rest. Which like Link2Jesus said is a tad bit one the pricey side . Don't get me wrong the money would be worth it (i could see this being really beneficial to my church , especially the youth) but this is so not in my budget.(^_^). Also songs look to be mostly contemporary Christian rock. So if you know you are mostly into gospel, or classic hymns this is not the app for you.
Great for Youth Ministry
by Jon Gross on 2012/11/28 14:43
This app is wonderful for youth ministry. I can download songs and turn up the volumes for what ever musicians I do not have that Wednesday night. Professionally recorded tracks sound great. However, I wish I was able to select which verses and which choruses I want to play and which ones I would like to repeat Like the Isingworship application lets me do. Also if this app could display lyrics abd chords on the screen and output lyrics to a TV that would just make my day.
Great for Small Churches
by TexasBear on 2017/10/22 22:00
I use this in our small church and it works great. When I have a guitarist, I can mute that instrument. When I am leading and know I won’t be able to devote my attention to keyboard, I can turn that layer on. The price of the songs seems reasonable, but it adds up. The same songs in multi tracks format ranges from $10 to $25 on other sites. The most I have seen in this app so far is $9.99. PLEASE add an auto login option. It is a pain and a distraction to have to login each time I open the app. It makes me sweat when I am on stage and I hope that my finder hits that login button in just the right spot.
A great worship accompany app!!!
by Sanbi team on 2018/07/30 14:19
I downloaded the app yesterday...and already up and running. The program was fairly intuitive, and easy to navigate. Just remember to save your settings by pushing the "download" button, or else you'll be using the unedited versions of the song. That was the trickiest part for me...but once I figured out the nuisances of the app....it was a breeze.
Worst
by Katie_Creep on 2017/11/14 12:49
Everything that you want/ need to make his app work needs to be purchased. A simple metronome on this app needs to be bought at he price of $1.99 which I think is over priced for a simple click on each beat. When you first download you have to again download another song just so you can do anything on the app. I hope my review helps you so that you don’t waste your time.
Please update!!!!!
by Laz3r on 2018/04/11 23:49
This app is awesome and obviously there are frequent users but it needs a stability update. I’ve had it crash during a few rehearsals by myself and it scares me to think that might happen in worship. I hope someone still monitors this thread and you guys can develop it.
Easy to use
by Fizzle Whiz on 2018/04/15 15:18
For the tech challenged musicians/worship leader, this is a great solution. It is easy the use and modify the songs and song sets. For a reasonable monthly fee, you can upload custom songs and loops.
Password reset??
by CoolCoxFamily on 2017/08/27 14:49
I have not used the app in a while due to live music. However I have forgotten my password and want to reset it. How do I do so?
Reset password
by Sing4Him! on 2017/06/08 01:47
How can I reset my password? I haven't used the app in awhile and don't remember my password.
App Does not work
by Golden freddy faz bear on 2018/09/28 22:39
All mine does is say rotate device to access mixer I try to rotate it but does not work. Don’t wast your time...
Awesome concept, needs some tweaks.
by Medge Guitars on 2012/06/05 16:41
This app is an awesome concept. However I echo the thoughts of other reviews, the price per song is just too high. This might not be the case if the tracks had more versatility. For example, being able to truly change keys in a real range of keys, not simply 'auto-tuning' the track into another key. That alone limits it use capabilities for those of us don't have the greatest of voices and need to play around with keys before preforming the songs. Another issue I saw with the app was that you are stuck with the version of the song that is recorded in their arrangement. While I don't think this is a bad thing, it would be helpful to have the exact sheet music or chord charts to go along with the arrangements that were recored. This would save potentially hours of time making sure that one has the proper arrangement with all the proper chords for that particular song. Perhaps access to an online database with that information, along with a simple lyric sheet for turning it into slides. I think with those improvements, I wouldn't mind paying $5.99 or more for a song because it would have the flexibility most of us need for such an app. Again, it's an awesome concept and could be a huge benefit for a lot of people if it simply had a few additions. Keep up the good work!
Good but has problems
by Rikki Mikki on 2014/08/31 11:41
I've been using worshipbandinhand for several weeks now. The features are pretty good. I enjoy the prices of the individual songs. Since we are a small church with no sound guy, I needed something I could run from the stage and this fit the bill nicely. Also, I love the prices of individual songs and we are deep in the lifewayworship ecosystem so there are lots of good choices for us. However, there are a several serious issues I wish could be addressed: 1) It takes too many clicks to move from one setlist song to the next. 2) You can't delete a song once it is downloaded. 3) I'm regularly experiencing "connection failed" errors when trying to download content. 4) Often, the recording layouts don't exactly match our arrangement. I can move sections of the song around (which is awesome) but I can't remove any of them (which is very limiting if I want to shorten a tune in a long playlist). Also, I'd love to be able to import stems from other sources or add my own tracks to the ones provided for each song...
On the right track.
by brolgray on 2012/05/24 05:20
I first downloaded this app shortly after it released and was blown away with how great an idea it was. Then, I was blown away with the price of the songs...$9.99 per song!!! No way was I going to pay that. It sat as dead space on my phone for a while until I deleted it. Curiosity drew me back to it a few days ago. I was not quite as blown away when I saw the prices this time. $5.99 is still a bit pricy, but a whole lot more reasonable that $9.99. I was discouraged a little when I came back to write this review and saw SALE in huge letters. It makes me think that if this app gains popularity, they'll jack the prices back up. I'd give em 5 stars if they'd drop on down to $1.99 or maybe even $2.99 per song and possibly throw lyrics or at least arrangement maps in there. But then again...with lifewayworship involved now, I'm sure prices won't stay low for long. This app has the potential to be a favorite in my phone if they'll keep prices reasonable.
Not quite there yet.
by cahva on 2012/04/12 15:35
Would have preferred to send an e-mail rather than post publicly but there is no way to contact you - not even from the "support" link above. You lost 2.5 stars for isolating yourself from your users. Btw, Facebook is for marketing not support. On to the app - it's a good app and will serve some worship leaders I'm sure. However, since you purchased rights to the music, I can't understand why you didn't include a scroll of words - words and chords would be 5 star worthy - just in case that a leader loses his/her place in the song while wrangling all the requirements that a leader has: singing, playing, looking at the congregation, listening to the Spirit, etc. etc. The faders could be shortened without compromising function too allow space. Did I miss something or is there a way to use the click but keep it out of the house mix? Truly an app on the way, but not quite there yet. A true support link with a contact address would be a huge step forward as well.
Sweet and . . .
by rpm2yrjm on 2012/06/08 22:24
This app is an excellent concept and one many of us solo leaders have wanted for some time! The song selection is good, though there is certainly room for expansion. The arrangements are solid and well done. The price of each track is understandable for the amount of work and effort of the artists involved. The flexibility of key has a nice start, but could be extended further. One suggestion that has yet to be seen is the possible flexibility in tempo. Some of the arrangements at their current tempo would make a difficult transition into a time of prayer/reflection for the group being led. This is certainly a valuable tool/app and expect to see more developments with each successive version. Certainly, it won't stop here.
Really Good... For the most part.
by smcelyea on 2013/03/04 02:17
I do like the program. The songs are mostly good. A broader selection of genre would be great. I would like a program I could buy that integrates with the app that would allow me to produce my own music on my MAC. I do however feel that for the price of the track, the music chart for the arrangement should be INCLUDED! THAT is my only real complaint. I even bit the bullet and BOUGHT a chart IT WAS NOT EVEN THE SAME!!! I could write my own chart, but for the convince the track provides, the chart should be a PDF download WITH the purchase. It will be interesting to see how things develop now that Media Shout is in the mix. Keep up the good work.
More suggestions...
by Little may may! on 2013/06/11 02:14
Love this app and the potential it has to transform my worship ministry. Here are a few suggestions: 1. Consistent vocal count-in's and prep beats. Some songs have a vocal count in and some don't. This would be sweet! 2. Some of the fills at the end of the songs are too long. A couple of the songs vamp the final chord for 25-30 seconds. My church "isn't quite there yet", so I either have to have someone fade out the track (usually me) or juggle hymnals until the vamp / famata ends. Gets a bit awkward. 3. Allow the importation of mp3's to the BNH app. This would allow me to use the clicks and loops that I already have, without having to go to another app to use them for songs that I don't have BNH stems for. I would be willing to pay for an enhanced BNH app for this option! 4. Keep building your library! Tomlin, Passion, Hillsongs, Gateway, North Point, etc! Thank you for this app and for helping me give my best in worship each week!
Good working on great.
by Tuna Mac on 2012/05/27 20:05
Price per songs the biggest hurdle for this app. I fully appreciate the effort and time per tune that goes into each track ... but sales volume should increase w/more attainable pricing. Possible a yearly "subscription" option might be helpful to infuse the developer w/additional funding as well. Bottom line ... avoid the temptation to try to make it all back as quickly as possible. This could easily become a MUST HAVE app for smaller churches, youth retreats and other church events like memorial services, weddings ... any event where fielding a full band is difficult. I'm excited to see where this app goes!
App is good but....
by Wadev3 on 2013/03/04 03:08
This is a cool app and definitely makes worship easier when people in our band have to be gone. Couple suggestions though... One- there needs to be a way to bounce the mixed track down so I can load an mp3 or whatever into my sheet music program. (Can't have both aps open at once) but my sheet music program will play linked tracks. Two- would be nice to be able to take the click out but still get a count off. Three- would be nice to be able to change the bpm up or down somewhat. Four - I would have given this app more stars if the prices were less expensive. I know it takes work to make these tracks but $9 is way too much for one song that I may just use the drum track on. CHEAPER PRICES PLEASE! Five - would be good to be able to flip arrangements (drag an extra chorus or change the chorus and bridge around) I know that would require a lot more than what it sounds but it would be cool.
Cannot Play
by rudiin on 2015/10/24 17:57
I grabbed this app because I thought it would be a nice way for me to practice with some background accompaniment. I still believe that. However, I have found that I am unable to play the music. In your screenshots I see the blue buttons for play and tempo adjustments, etc. - but I just have a grey bar with nothing on it. I have power cycled as well as updated to latest 9.1 iOS. I would love to try it out but cannot.
Great
by Mrpowers623 on 2013/01/30 00:50
I just became the interim worship leader at my church and I was looking for something to spice things up. I think this is it! I downloaded You'll Come by Hillsong and it was done great. I plan on using it this Sunday at church. The only improvement I can think of is the sheet music should be included in the download, in the arrangement it was recorded in. So people who are not as musically inclined do not have to think about how it will flow with the music. Other than that, Great App!
#bandinhand
by Randybrown237 on 2013/03/18 02:43
Wow this app has saved me a couple of weeks in a row. 1st week had no drummer, put the click in the ears of the bass and electric guitar players and off we went. Week 2 I used it by myself and it was a hit. Perfect app for small churches and worship venues. Could use some improvement, but if your looking for that type of option try ableton live. Great job guys. Thanks for your commitment to helping worship leaders do it better.
Link2Jesus is right/Lacks music diversity

by Kihgdtujf on 2013/03/17 00:27
I enjoy the program and the ability to mute an instrument or just the ability to turn down an instrument. I really would like to have a lead singer so that I can know where to come in...just for practice mode. Also, I would like to see the program to have the ability to change key wayyyyyy more then what it does now. Songs are bit expensive, as well. Otherwise I would have rated you five stars.
Great for small church
by CREated59 on 2014/03/09 16:00
I have been using this for several months now. We use it in our worship services. We don't have a worship band so this adds to the fullness of the music. I'm not sure what the problem is for multiple devices. I use it on the church's iPad and my own. I do agree that the prices are kind of high on some songs. Fortunately they have bundles and some $4-7 songs.
Can be better!!!
by LANTMUSIC on 2013/08/18 23:42
I liked the update that lets us send click to left, right, and both....but can you add an option where I can send the click with the mix on left for in ears, and still get the mix alone for the house on the right...it will be more like a stereo click track that we can pan it...that will help us a lot specially if having an small sound system and our in ear are very limited....God Bless
Not useful in so many ways
by gtrgal62 on 2013/01/03 05:14
The price is too much for small churches and unpaid musicians. The music is often inaccurate. Chord charts, actual music notation is better, but usually doesn't follow 'pop church' songs' arrangements. For me, worthless. For EACH and any song offered, I'd like to see background tax, real music notation for real musicians, option for simple lyrics and chords (for small home church group mtgs), and key transposition ability. The ability to make note/chord changes on the music would be great! Also nice would be Scripture passages the songs may coincide with, and optional suggestions for helpful church seasons or periscope use.
Great start......
by Derek_is_rad on 2012/12/20 16:43
The concept and execution of this app is amazing. Such an original and innovative tool to help in various settings where you don't have the man power. My only constructive criticisms would be the pricing of the songs, which for an unpaid worship leader definitely deters purchasing and the fact that you should look into allowing full key changes rather than just 1 full step up or down.
Not very good. Don't buy.
by zing zing zing on 2013/01/02 03:06
I don't mind paying 5 or 6 bucks for the audio and band tracks... But 2 bucks for bad chord charts is too much. Especially when they are not correct. I bought 2 tracks and 2 chord charts and neither chord chart was correct. Several of the chords didn't fit the tracks and most all the chord changes were not on beat. Don't know if it was formatted wrong when they did the charts. Formatting should have nothing to do with it since the chord charts are a PDF. Someone needs to check this stuff before selling it. I'm gonna try to get my money back.
Love this App but need help asap...
by MandaMae123 on 2015/04/15 02:38
This app is great and was working great on my iPhone AND my iPad, then it updated and now I cannot log into my account on my iPhone. I used both iPhone and iPad to run the app for the longest time and now can only use my iPad. I have $76 invested in the app and songs so far and I NEED to be able to use both devices. Someone please fix this problem!!!!
Very helpful
by THE TIZMO on 2013/08/07 21:31
This app has been a great help to our church's worship experience. I love the ability to chose several keys. The only suggestion I have is that they some how allow you to change the order of the song in order to make it longer or shorter. Besides that the play is stellar.
Great App!
by ChrisRamosMusic on 2013/02/09 07:44
This has really revolutionized the way I do worship. The days of hunting down someone to help out on a last moments notice or when a worship team member can't make it for whatever reason are gone. This is such a valuable tool for worship leaders of a big worship teams as well as someone on their own. Kudos!!!
Great App - songs are $6 each
by ShdAllStr on 2012/09/12 13:45
This is a great app. Each song in the available library varies in price but is about $6 on avg. There are a few set lists. I'd love to see an option to buy the whole list, like a 'lifetime' purchase option - even if it is expensive.
Pretty good.
by Bruin-55 on 2015/05/24 05:13
I don't know why people are complaining about the price per song. If you look up any loop website, they are usually $20-30 per song, so this isn't bad. And $9 a song isn't much for someone who is serious about worship music stuff. And the low price kinda explains some of the lower quality samples..
Great app!!!!
by Dandy handyman on 2012/11/05 22:32
I love the idea and I love the way it works. There are so many ways to make one song fit your congregation. Works great when just singing together. Very hard if impossible to make it work when following Holy Spirit in worship service, can't replace the musician filled with Holy Spirit.
Fantastic!!!!
by WorshipMan87 on 2012/10/16 02:09
I came upon this app at the 2012 Experience Conference in Orlando, FL. I use it when my musicians are either slip in numbers or they are all busy since they occasionally work Sunday nights. I absolutely love it!! It works fantastically for my purposes and I highly recommend it to any other musician who leads worship!
Suggestion
by starjeremie on 2015/12/18 05:18
I like the new version much better but I would like to see if we can be able to get vocal background in all the songs and if you can put the tempo up or down like you did for the key change. The best app ever
Love it!
by kuhraig on 2013/03/16 04:47
Great app! Perfect for when I lead in smaller venues with a smaller band but want to keep the same full sound that we have on our main stage. Songs and sounds are high quality, and I don't mind paying for this kind of quality. Keep the standards high!
Don't waste your time
by Leterrip on 2015/11/14 22:45
This app used to work really well and all of a sudden, the play button has disappeared. It has really been a problem for us, as we are a small church and used Band In Hand almost every Sunday. Now it's useless. Bought a bunch of songs that we cannot use. Oh yeah, and don't try to use their "contact" tab, I tried that too, and absoluetly "no reply." Not a good way to sell your product.
A little disappointed.
by Brownsville Chica on 2015/01/28 21:09
For some reason I'm able to log in to my account on a desktop. But the ios app never accepts my password. That stinks because the whole point for me was to be able to use my iPad for worship service. Also, songs are pricey. We are a small church. Why don't you charge a monthly fee based on church size? So that way songs could be free, or at least at a great discount.
Excellent!
by Forgert on 2012/12/19 16:39
For a musician without a band or a partial band this thing is so Great! Can change set up every time! And Prices for other bands to make a customizable song for YOUR particular worship setting, I think prices are very fair. Love the bundle pricing, would love to see more of that!
Great worship app and tool but too expensive
by Link2Jesus on 2013/03/13 16:14
Overall wonderful app and tool but prices are way too high for the average small church. Just downloading 10-15 songs can cost over $100. Please consider offering lower and better pricing or small church or group rates. Thank you for your hard work.
Love it.... But
by Natetastic on 2013/02/27 17:18
Ok so this app blew my mind when i first heard about it. I can definitely see myself using this to help lead worship at church. But how are the prices going to help compete against the split track prices of iTunes? 1.29 or 7.99 hmmm iTunes sounds better for now. But i will still try and take advantage of this app!!! I love it
Great for the youth ministry
by NewKid on 2012/08/15 03:17
I've been wanting a youth praise band at our church for sometime now. This is a great app that doesn't require hours upon hours of setup. If you've ever lead worship solo, pick up this app and a few songs and let everyone wonder how you are doing it!
GREAT price!
by RVEly on 2013/05/20 12:58
The people who are complaining about the prices of the songs don't know the industry. I used Ableton with another multitrack supplier and the prices are $39 per song. The $5 - 10 per song with Band In Hand is actually a VERY reasonable alternative! I'm thankful for it.
Almost...
by Tonedog2112 on 2012/08/27 23:25
I just wish it had tabs for the instrumentation similar to Jammit, these are all the songs I wanna learn to play and having the tracks separate out like this it would amazing, maybe I'm missing the point of this app of subbing for a band. But this could be a really awesome learning tool to use. If you could skip into sections of songs.
Great app idea, but...
by joko360 on 2013/08/14 03:27
like other reviewers wrote, you buy each song individually at $9.99, kinda pricey for building a music library, even with nice features. Also you have to log into app each time, kinda lame. Also would be nice if you could lengthen or shorten a song for when your worship team wants to add or shorten songs. Aside from these things; good app overall.
Perfect for worship
by Oldrumguy on 2013/08/03 20:55
Just recently looking at doing a mobile worship gig and this works great for me to mute or not depending on who shows up to play live if someone can't make it I resort to this to play their parts without them.
Worship Drummer
by Chris_Allen_21 on 2013/04/21 17:46
Great app, agree that it would be nice if there were some sort of a discount for smaller churches because buying songs here does get pricey. Also wish that I could download this app onto my MacBook instead of having to use my phone. Thanks!
Greatest band in box app yet!
by michaelsstreet on 2012/07/18 18:21
This is the app I have been waiting for. I can use it for youth and supplement with live players or vice versa. Quality is great and the songs follow the normal order of the song so you can download the chord chart from CCLI.
