Default Is anyone using a phone app to organize band events?

I have just discovered a category of apps that is for organizing sports teams. Team App is an example. You can schedule games and practices and members can enter their availability. You can use it for team communications. This seems like it would work pretty well for a pipe band.

Is anyone using an app like this? How is it working out? Do you have any recommendations for which app is best?

Thanks in advance for your input.

We use Team Snap to keep track of gigs, competitions, special practices, etc. The phone app works fine, as does the web browser version.

Really depends on how computer-focused your membership is though. We have several that have never touched a computer (or a smartphone).

We use TeamApp - see https://cqpd.teamapp.com . We have found that it more than meets our needs, and better still those who won't or can't use FaceBook will use TeamApp.

We use TeamSnap. The universal problem is getting members to use it.

Cheers! Phil

Save me!! Oh,!!..how did we survive ..and do this in the past century in our multi time grade 3 champions competition band??...oh yeah ..I remember...all the players ...drummers and pipers....came to virtually every practice,..listened, practiced at home, and then showed up for the car pool or whatever transport on the day....to participate in another sanctioned and winning performance. Incredible...t'was long after the pony express and b/w tv too;....sad.

Thanks to those who actually answered the question. I'm trying out TeamApp.
