When it works it's alright. Unfortunately I've had the same experience as others where - after I've been using it for a few weeks - the app goes into some sort of loop when you open it, requiring me to uninstall & reinstall, which fixes it for a while.

Never had the crashing problem on my Android that other reviewers have had. Maybe that's fixed now? Seems like a handy little tool for a pastor to quickly access contact information. Definitely need to update the app to add the ability to filter Active and Inactive members, though. We have only a couple hundred Active members in our little church, but our entire 2,000+ member database shows up in the app. Good that they're accessible, but would be really nice to be able to filter the list!
