Designed and programmed for people who have an active role in their church communities, EasyWorship hands you a complete toolbox to tackle a broad range of administrative tasks. A key feature in EasyWorship has come to be known as "Sing Your Heart Out." This creates both songbooks and scriptures, and a special folder provides you with hymnals. You can drag and drop it into various playlists for when you need it. You can also organize your media to share it with members of the church. This often takes place in the form of alerts and message boards.
This program could definitely be said to reach cutting edge technology, and it connects members of the church so that they have better communication. Before you choose to integrate this into the church setting, however, keep in mind that the learning curve can be steep for new users who want to learn the various aspects of it. EasyWorship lets you drag and drop the various playlists. You can also organize and access the media with the click of a button. Once you have understood the more complex details of the program, it will almost surely bring church members together.
While relatively simple for people who understand the computer, it takes time to master EasyWorship, but almost every good program will be like that. The group who struggles the most to understand EasyWorship is the older generation and people who have spent a limited amount of time in front of a computer. With the latest upgrade, some people have thought the software went downhill a little because it feels less intuitive. For example, you cannot hit ctrl+U to underline the lyrics, and editing can be more complex. Also, some strange bugs will sometimes pop up with this software.
You do, however, have plenty of new internal features that let you create presentations, and more often than not, getting the words saved before a new error pops up. The great thing about this product is how cheap it is, and it meets the needs of most small churches. In fact, it can go a long way to organizing a church meeting. In essence, the price and the ease of use are the main selling points of this software. A lot of churches have used it for more than 10 years, but some of the recent changes have made it more difficult to understand. Once you learn the several unique characteristics about it, you should have no problem learning the rest. The user friendly interface of EasyWorship works well. Sometimes worship leaders do not always stay organized with their song order, and you can use custom search to find the song lyrics you need. Overall, this tool comes at a low price, and the value you receive makes it worthwhile.
