Comments and Reviews from users:

Tiffany Brostek: “My biggest issue is that everyone you have it set to calendar view, then click a day to check what tasks are there, it changes the entire month to list view and is very difficult for me to navigate from there. It also keeps changing the default view to list view, and I'm not sure about other people, but viewing a calendar as a list is extremely difficult for me. I use it because it's the easiest to sync with my husband's phone, but I really don't like it.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Lo Jones: “I'm having so many issues with my events not recording, past events not showing up and my tasks not moving forward when I try to change them. I've cleared my cache and tried everything under the sun that's been suggested. It's my favorite calendar but I'm to the point of having to change. Please help. UPDATE: I never received the help needed. So, I am uninstalling Google Calendar and installing another calendar. I depend upon my calendar and don't have time to have to troubleshoot for days own.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

Jose Rivera: “When setting up multiple calendars for different types of scheduling work, volunteer work and time with the family, it so much easier to share the individual calendars with those that need to know about those schedules. Though, don't need to see your entire calendar. It makes checking availability easier, from your desktop or your smartphones. Recommended!” – 5/5 in Play Store

Jorge Silva: “Finally after years if trying! I've tried a number of calendar apps and this is the best by far. I wanted to be able to scroll the calendar one week at a time, so I could see the next few weeks- this one does it well. Displays several calendars at the same time clearly, option of color bars or details... so many features that make sense. Every once in a while I discover another nice feature- well done! Two years into it and still love it. Highly recommend it.” – 5/5 in Play Store

Allie White: “I love the variety of calendars they offer (various cultural holidays, sports, TV channels, finance, and some astronomical ones), the wide variety of colors available for the app's theme, the different views of your calendar available, and the events are so easy to change. I can also choose which calendars to display on the widget & I can give it any color combo I want 😊 A lot of the features are only available with premium, but it is super affordable at less than $4/*year*! Thank you, DigiCal!” – 5/5 in Play Store

Benjamin Herron: “I got this as an alternative to Google calendar and have been very happy with it. It includes little features like being able to jump to a specific date and being able to make reminders for any amount of time/days before an event. The weather feature is nice as a quick reference, but I prefer to have a little more detail than can be adequately shown on a calendar since I work outdoors.” – 5/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “A huge updgrade for my workplace scheduling, but already having some issues with the app. It will not let me access the chat feature or input availability until the app is updated, but there are no available updates. Hopefully that's just a small glitch or our work Chromebook being a pain, since the app looks like it will be very useful for us.” – 3/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “the app itself is great. let's you know when you work and how many hours per week your getting. The only issue i have along with some of my co-workers is the notification system is not great. i can go couple days and notice there was a group message in app going on. i have all my preferences to get notifications on and still nothing shows up. So until they fix their notification system it will stay at 4 stars.” – 4/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

Violeta Brodie: “Slow. Buggy. Barely acceptable. I used this as my works scheduling, messaging, and clock-in app for over a year and by far the worst aspect is the messaging function. We ended up downloading a whole separate app just to hold our chats because the messaging system is so unreliable. 2005 AOL IM was more user-friendly and reliable than Homebase's announcement and messaging functions. The reason it's not an outright zero is that you /can/ clock in and see your work schedule to an acceptable degree.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Taylor Munson: “Very good. I would give 5 stars but there a couple features of the UI that are counter-intuitive, such as when I click on one of my daily shifts in order to see what comes after the ellipses cutoff (2:00 pm to 7...) to see if it's 7 or 7:30, instead it goes to my profile. Or when I click on "Total Shifts Worked: 26", to perhaps see those dates and times, instead it goes to "Add Experience". Anyway good app overall” – 4/5 in Play Store

Having an issue with the shift pool in the app. On the main page where it shows "shifts up for grab" nothing ever populates there, it just says "no shifts available in the shift pool." However, when i go to the "more" tab and click on shift pool, there are shifts here. Can someone look into this? Version 3.9.2.2, Samsung Galaxy S9+” – 5/5 in Play Store

John Walton: “This is an excellent app that my company has been using for some time. Lately I have run into a minor issue where I'm unable to contact certain individuals through the app's chat feature, however, when they message me first it opens up a new chat and we are able to correspond.

A Google user: “This app is severely neglected on Android. I use it for work and it's just not reliable. From calendar syncs, to notifications, to having to constantly refresh the feed. Not to mention if your connection is spotty or you're switching onto or off of wifi, it'll spam several little sliders to let you know. It uses a lot of battery for how little I get out of it.” – 3/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “The service sling provides is great. I really, really like it. The app... Is alright. It's fine for employees - they can see their schedule and send and receive messages without revealing everyone's personal phone numbers. But as an administrator, the app is practically worthless. I only have it to respond to messages. Scheduling is impossibly complicated in the app, much faster to do on paper. The app also doesn't allow you to send announcements, at least not that I've found. There's also no way to view an announcement again. I wish it had a timer (available for x days) The UI also seems to be difficult for new employees to understand. There are too many different tabs and menus that give the appearance of a lot of features, that don't really exist. The website, however, is great” – 3/5 in Play Store

Patrick F.: “For such a great and easy to use online service, their app is mediocre at best. It's almost as if they don't really care about their app. There are many features it should have but doesn't. I recommended you use your browser to set up a home button on your smart device instead. The only thing the app is really good for is notifying you when somebody schedules an event. But even then, it doesn't allow you to choose a different notification setting for a different event.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

Brian Morris: “Such a mixed bag. The last few updates have brought in the waitlist feature, which is quite nice, but have taken away the ability to connect a Pixel Slate to the NFC reader (which killed a beautiful check out experience) as well as the link from a customer's phone number to send an SMS. They want us to use the built in message system, but it's missing almost every feature of modern SMS clients. The new Tap to Pay option is buggy, too, often requiring multiple attempts.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Jim HGo: “Great, but no 'bulk time-slot' discount, then book function, (like Appointments-Plus). You can set it up so customers can pre-pay before being able to book their time with you, and this syncs well w Square Invoice, but it kills me you can't offer package discounts--then book. For example, say a Hair Salon charges $50/cut, but wants to offer pre-paid discount packages (buy 3 for $140, 4 for $185, etc.), Square can't do this, like Appointments-Plus can. That's the only thing missing from Square.” – 5/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “As a driving instructor, I've been trying to find something convenient, and easy to use to schedule my students. I've done it by using a paper calendar, and I still do, just in case my phone needs replaced, but/and this app has made it a lot easier to send out the text messages, and reminders with ease. If I get to where I will need to get the unlimited appointments, then I think I'll be more than willing to pay for that service, as long as the price doesn't jump up ridiculously like some companies do.” – 5/5 in Play Store

sean pushor: “The appointment schedule is great, a lot of nice features. But I just sent reminders out to all my clients and they are contacting me telling me to stop - they've gotten 7 texts from me so far for the one appointment. I only ok'd one text. The app isn't supposed to send a text without my intervention. I don't even have record of the text going out, it only shows the one in my text dialogue.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Seow Cher Tan: “It is quite.straighf forward. And the interface is clean and neat. I have a small challenge. On the booking page , it is only showing one service despite I have created at least 3. So I wonder how to have all three showing up.” – 5/5 in Play Store

Ryan: “Works well, however a few things might make it better: Selecting times for apointments could be easier if I had the option to type in the time instead of having to scroll so much to find the time. Secondly, if an appointment is marked as a no show, it would be great if that "slot" would automatically change to a different color... I am referring to the desktop/browser version here. I suspect the same for the android app.” – 3/5 in Play Store
