One of the best pieces of software I've used in church for putting songs and texts in screen.

Pros: It was a wonderful day when the church decided to buy EW instead of just using PowerPoint for visual aids in services. We use EW to display hymns and Bible texts mainly on the projector or TV but it really comes in handy for praise and worship sessions where we can just keep the words coming as the song leaders chain songs together. The built-in Bible versions also mean that the preachers can call any random text during the sermons and we can put it in seconds.

The first thing I like about this software is that it is easy to setup and get it running. The system requirements are pretty basic in terms of software and memory usage but of course you need a device that supports dual video output. I ran our first version of Easy Worship on an old laptop with Windows XP and no more than 512MB RAM. Of course the newer versions require a little more processing power and memory but the early version still works well even on newer operating systems.

Secondly the interface is pretty easy to understand and use. So intuitive that non-techies can master the basic operations in less than 30 minutes. It's a great tool for helping young persons to get involved in the service. As long as they can read and pay attention to the service they can help put the songs and texts up on screen. EW is highly customizable and also easy to back up onto a flash drive. This comes in very handy during computer upgrades. No need to add all the custom songs over again.

Cons: There's not a lot to not like about this software. My biggest issue is that they don't support Mac systems. It's not a deal breaker but it does limit our choices for computer upgrades.

The second issue is the upgrade price. It's really great software and the initial cost is worth the investment but the upgrade price is a little steep. A smaller yearly subscription might be better and more manageable for smaller churches.

My final issue is more technical and it has to do with codecs and using videos as backgrounds in EW. The videos work fine on their own but as soon as you try to use them as a background they stop playing. It seemed to be a Windows 7 issue. Maybe fixed in 8 or 10 but none of the fixes found online worked so far. It's more of an annoyance than a major issue.

Thanks for your feedback! I wanted to let you know that the MAC version is actually our primary focus currently and I hope you will be able to try it out. We have now added a subscription model that can be done yearly or monthly as well for EasyWorship 7. Could you please contact one of us in support about the video playback issue? I would love to help you out with that. - Fred

Pros: * It is very useful, in my case for the church * It serves as a support, I can use it as support material, because we project videos, the lyrics of the songs, announcements of activities. * Help to organize the information of all the letters of the songs and they are ordered alphabetically. * It serves as support material, it helps a lot to the assistants of the church, adults to read and to be able to sing the songs and the young people in their meeting to be more crestivos with the videos

Cons: * In very few occasions the computer is slowed by so much information introduced in the program but it is only when it is saturated with videos at the same time, that several are used at the same time. * I have only used it in English, I have not been able to use it in Spanish, and sometimes I need to use it in that language. * The negative things that the program has are minimal, but I will only say that what affects me is when I have to use it on a less advanced computer, the machine slows down. that's it

Overall: it is support in each service, meeting of the church, favors all the attendees, because they read and can sing the songs that are not known, new, and unknown. * When we project videos, it helps to make the talk more understandable and more understandable to all the visitors and assistants of the church.

Hi Rosymar, thank you for your feedback! I'm thrilled to see that our program has been so useful for your church. I did notice that you are having some trouble with utilizing Spanish language items in the program and wanted to let you know that you should be able to create Hymns and other items in Spanish without any issues. If you are having trouble with this, I would be more than happy to assist you with it. Please let me know if you would like to take a look - Fred, support@easyworship.com

Pros: This software can work at the largest scale venues for our conference in Australia. It's a great to implement powerpoint integration and seamless video transitions for presentation. This software maintains stability and reliability, and only has had limitations on the hardware laptops itself. Great customisability of manual scaling for external display resolutions which is super handy for massive screens or multi projector displays. Also Native Microsoft PowerPoint Support.

Cons: This software prefers videos in the wmv codec. So converting and optimising videos is a must before import. also you will need to have a 16:9 and 4:3 presentations separately.

Overall: Solid performer from the early days of conference touring and presentations. Have used it for many years, and am really happy with the easy of use compared to ProPresenter. Native Powerpoint support including transitions is really useful for complex presentations and adds an excellence and professionalism that really wins business and credibility.

Pros: We use EasyWorship for our Sunday services. I love how easy to use it is. Oftentimes volunteers are hesitant to volunteer to run slides because they think it requires a lot of technical experience, but EasyWorship is so straight forward we tell volunteers if you can use Facebook you can run EasyWorship. The black-out feature also makes transitions very smooth and the ability to preview what is coming up next helps you stay organized while running slides.

Cons: You do need a bit more technical training to load the songs/slides onto EasyWorship. Not a ton (if you are file opening, moving and attaching files, you could figure it out), but enough that the volunteer who can click buttons to advance slides may not be comfortable doing those things on the back-end. It just means a bit of extra prep before the service and is by no means an insurmountable obstacle.

I honestly haven't run into many problems with EasyWorship. I know there are more expensive and fancier softwares out there for people that want more options/customizability. For us, EasyWorship works just fine!

Overall: Love being able to include and onboard volunteers easily and having features that make running a smooth service up front do-able

Pros: EasyWorship simply WORKS! Whatever our church has attempted to accomplish graphically (motion graphic backgrounds, pre-service announcement loops, etc) EasyWorship has been able to handle it.

Cons: Navigation and menu flow. While vastly superior to other worship presentation software (including PowerPoint), I'll encounter times that I want to accomplish a specific action and the process to do so isnt the way I intuitively through it would be.

Overall: After a failed experience with another major worship presentation software, we switched to EasyWorship. As a multi-campus church, this has been the best investment we have made for our A/V department so far. We rely heavily on video presentations (pre-recorded sermon videos, bumpers, motion background, etc). EasyWorship not only handles videos well, but has a (mostly) intuitive user interface. It also allows exporting entire schedules (services) with all items embedded to transfer to other computers or archive. Finally, when we have had issues (on our end, setting up proper computer settings) support was fantastic, getting us up and running quickly. Highly recommended.

Pros: I like the fact that it can project both the biblical readings and the lyrics of the songs .It also has several versions of the bible which is a real plus and one can switch from one version to another real quick. It also has the ability to make really attractive presentations.

Cons: The only problem i have faced with EasyWorship is that it freezes when i load a video in the media section,eventually it unfreezes but takes a while.

Overall: Having the ability to project song lyrics,Bible verses and quotes from preachers.

Pros: I've used this software for quite a while now. It has been through three upgrades during that time. The features it provides are really useful, including the ability to import PowerPoint files, integration with the Song Select service for importing song lyrics, capability for using a fold-back display and the ability to project to multiple screens. Support is pretty consistent with the subscription service.

Cons: The one thing that drives me absolutely crazy with the software is the inconsistency of playing video files. I can have a an MP4 video for a service and test it multiple times before the service starts and it works great. Service starts and the file will show going live but no audio or video plays. This happens easily 75% or better of the time videos are incorporated into a service.

Vendor Response

by Softouch Development on March 25, 2019

Hi Rick, thanks for your feedback! That inconsistency with MP4 videos is not normal. In fact, MP4 videos should be one of the most reliable and smooth playback experiences through EasyWorship.

Pros: 1. It was the most feature-rich product for the price. Now, the product has too many bugs to consider it "reasonably priced".

2. I liked the "check for changes" options as it allows multiple people to contribute to a worship schedule. However, you have to manually start it. It used to be automatic.

3. I like how you can import PowerPoint presentations with all the basic PowerPoint controls.

4. I like how well you can mix audio, PowerPoint and EW7 created media in the same schedule.

Cons: 1. Support is average. They believe the only way to solve a problem is to login to your computer and take control, not acceptable.

2. You can't export the text of anything you create in EW7. So, if you create 200+ songs in EW7 you can't port them to somewhere else. All you can do is export a list of songs or open each song and copy all the text.

3. Even after multiple releases of EW6 and EW7, PowerPoint presentations will sometimes stop working. The PP slides turn black and instead of seeing 12 separate slides, you only see 1 black slide.

4. If you resize the Application screen, EW7 will not remember how you sized the panels the next time you start it up.

5. You can run an audio travt in the background while you display a video or image file.

Overall: I've been using this software since Dec 2014. Then, the version was "Easy Worship 2009". It was a great product at a great price. But EW redesigned the product to add more features, called it "Easy Worship 6". It was full of bugs and lacked many features many people loved in EW2009, "checking for changes" and basic "copy/paste/undo" commands. The new features of EW6 was the creation of "themes". Nice, but not necessary. I endured EW6 and the many patches. It became stable in Dec 2017 and they brought back "check for changes". However, in late 2017, they decided to make the product subscription based. We decided to go with an annual subscription in June 2018. The product has been working great, allowing me to mix PowerPoint, EW7 created choruses, scripture, video and even web pages. Then sometime betw 11/24/18 and 12/01/18, the product stopped working. EW7 believed I was not an active subscriber even after both EW staff and myself verified our registration. Support was not very helpful. They asked the standard questions - did you receive an update from Windows or any other product? Can you restore your computer to a point in time when EW7 was working? Seriously? Finally, support pushed a beta copy of the next release to me and EW7 worked again. 3 days later, the same problem re-occurred. It has not been resolved.

Helpful Interface with CCLI but Not User-Friendly

Pros: The best thing about EasyWorship is the interface with CCLI that allows me to import new worship songs into our presentation for Sunday morning, saving me the time of typing up the lyrics manually. And though I find the interface not very user-friendly, there is an extremely helpful wealth of "how-to" articles and videos provided by EasyWorship. When I run into a question of how to do something, I can simply google my question and the first return on the search is always an EasyWorship how-to page. Importing of powerpoints, which our pastors use to construct their sermon slides, is pretty seamless, though occasionally we run into snafus if one of the slides has a video.

Cons: As a designer who has used everything from the Adobe suite to Microsoft Office to Google's many online programs, I have to say that EasyWorship is one of the least user-friendly programs I've encountered. I have been frustrated by things like a simple "undo" function being absent from the program until the most recent update, and menus so confusing and counter-intuitive that I spent much of my first few weeks with the program googling "how to find__ in Easy Worship" just to access basic menus. For example, editing tools for anything but your basic font options are not found in an "edit" menu but through an "inspector" button. I helped train someone new in on the software and could tell that they were very overwhelmed, as many things are not where you would expect based on previous experience with software and Apple or PC operating systems.

Overall: We're using EasyWorship for projecting songs, announcement slides, scripture, and sermon powerpoints on Sunday morning. I've been using the program for just over a year and it was what was being used when I took over as office administrator. It does fill our need for our services, and we now have a wealth of songs and liturgy saved within the program, making putting together those weekly presentations fairly simple. However, if someone were just starting out and choosing which program to use, I would not recommend EasyWorship simply for the fact that it is not intuitive or user friendly and the learning curve to get to the place where it is easy to use is very steep (as I observed both for myself and for a secretary at another local church who just went through that process with my help this fall).

Pros: I love EasyWorship because it is intuitive, easy to use and flexible enough for almost any church. I love that you can create a template for a standard week's service and use that as your baseline, making only minor changes. This even has a notification system for child care to let parents know that they are needed in the children's area.

Cons: Some software will allow you to save songs and all you have to do to display the song is "v1 v2 ch1" and the verses and choruses will display in that order. This software requires you to have the entire song saved, so skipping a verse takes skill or making changes takes extra time and saving a new version. This can be a minor frustration-but it is livable.

Pros: Easy Worship is a presentation software and database for songs, announcements and all things pertaining to a live production. It is easy to use, easy to customize, professional in display and affordable. Easy Worship makes it possible for the presenter to follow the worship team even if they go off script and change on the fly. Scriptures and slides can be preloaded or adjusted live.

Cons: Easy Worship does not work with Mac computers unless you dual boot with windows. The pc computer needs to have a good video card with RAM to display video well.

Overall: Easy Worship gives professional display for services with an easy, quick break training period.

Pros: I love EasyWorship! It's so fun and easy to use. If you'd like to teach your Tech person during service to handle it, the average time to teach how to operate it would probably be 2 minutes. Maybe 5. For a person populating the songs and managing the database, it's a simple drag and drop. I also like the preset background and animating backgrounds as well, and the Bible plug-ins. I saw other products with the same purpose, I still think this is the best one available in the market. I don't suggest you switch if you're already using this. Unless they offer free trial. You'll definitely miss this and the convenience it offers.

Cons: When we upgraded to a new version, it didn't offer an upgraded license. We had to buy an entirely new one.

Hi Andres, thank you for your feedback! I'm glad to hear that you have had such a good experience with our software thus far. It sounds like you may be using our 2009 version of the software. This version did have some significant file format limitations that have been vastly expanded with versions 6 and 7. I also wanted to let you know that the newer database format that is used has made conversions and transfer processes less painful than the previous versions and transferring data in Spanish and most other languages is no longer an issue as it had been with early versions of our software. We do not currently have a Spanish version of the software as you had mentioned; however, software will accept text in a wide variety of languages such as Spanish.

Pros: Easy to use, nice user interface, easy to learn, saving song lists and quick editing

Cons: Not enough backgrounds, sometimes its copying and pasting creates errors

Overall: Overall, this is an amazing program. It is so easy to use. I was an absolute novice when I first encountered it but it is very simple to teach yourself because all of the necessary features are in plain view. Any creating or editing options for songs are clearly marked and I think that helps with the accessibility and usefulness of this program. Also, you can plan song lists or save the ones that work well. I gave four stars for overall quality because I don't think that its perfect, nothing ever is (the backgrounds could be updated but that'ts just me trying to be critical), but its pretty close. I wish I could give 4.5 stars.

I can't comment much on the value for the money since I was not involved in the purchasing details; however, since I belong to a small church, I believe the price is manageable even on a limited budget. This is why I gave four stars. I also had no reason to contact customer service, which I believe speaks to how great this program is.

Pros: We use EasyWorship in our services every week. I love the features that allow it to be used on the fly. For instance, if I used a Bible verse that wasn't on my preparation notes for person running EasyWorship, they can easily look it up and display it according to the style that was predefined. It works really great like that.

Cons: They have moved away from the old sight license model and have moved on to a subscription based service. I am not a fan of this direction it seems all software is heading.

Overall: EasyWorship takes very little effort to setup for each service. If you have certain styles you want followed on a regular basis its easy to create the style and just know that the content will be displayed like you want it to be.

Pros: I like that we can use Easy Worship to plan out our worship services. We can let announcement slides roll before service starts. We can also easily put in any videos we might be showing. We can set up the lyrics to the songs we'll be using, and easily change things if we need to. Even if you spot a typo, you can change that in real time without having to close down the projection, change it, and get it back up. There is also a "memory bank" of thousands of songs to choose from, so we don't have to type in every word to every song. And since it works on our local network, we can put things on it from the office, and it's there for us in the sound booth.

Cons: We ran into really big issues when we had a computer go down. We had to set everything up on the new computer. Everything should have popped back up when we logged back in, but we lost all of our huge memory bank of songs (all the songs we've done for years and years). We've basically had to enter each song in one by one, and with the latest update to EasyWorship, it's harder than ever to do. And then, when we do enter the songs in and save them to our database, they lose their formatting when we try to open them again. Our secretary has spent HOURS searching for tech support/help/advice, and there's just nothing. It's been incredibly frustrating to deal with.

Overall: Easy Worship is a big help in our worship service. Basically everything that goes on the screen comes through Easy Worship. We can plan, organize, and change it all from there.

The big downside has been trying to set things up again on a new computer. We should have thousands of songs at our fingertips, but it's almost like we had to completely start over.

Pros: Easy to use software in order to display multiple powerpoint slides without having to open several different powerpoint windows and switching between them. We use this every service to manage our Praise and Worship slideshows. It is easy to use and customize. Great to use on multiple monitors as well.

Cons: Software occasionally crashes when uploading pptx files at times. It's not all the time, but it does get annoying especially when we haven't saved the slides yet. Easy fix is to just upload PPT files.

Hi, thanks for your feedback! I'm glad that you all have been enjoying EasyWorship in your ministry. I wanted to let you know that the issue of crashing with .pptx files is unusual and should be correctable if you would like to work with one of our technical support personnel. If you would like to take me up on that offer, please just email me at support@easyworship.com. Thanks, Fred.

Hi Jason, thanks for your feedback! I just wanted to reach out and let you know that we actually do offer many of the features that our competitors offer for no additional cost. With EasyWorship 7, we have added NDI compatibility, a remote control app for smart devices, and MIDI integration among "pro" features that have been around since EasyWorship 2009. We also add other new features to make the software easier and more user-friendly periodically.

Pros: I love how easy and intuitive Easy Worship is to use. It easily imports song lyrics, motion and still background screens, and saves templates. This makes week to week worship planning a breeze. When only a few changes are required, it is easy to make a few modifications from week to week. Being able to see the screens on the monitor before they appear on the screen helps technicians know what content is queued. Software is easy to learn and does not require a professional to use (although there is a learning curve, it is accessible to anyone who desires to learn).

Cons: There really isn't anything I don't like about easy worship.

Overall: Easy Worship is a time saving software and allows our worship to be created easily from week to week. Files are easy to save and reuse and templates make planning a breeze.

I used Easy Worship for about 4 years and found it simple to use.

Pros: Easy Worship was the staple for us for many years. We created several video backgrounds in multiple file formats and it accepted all of them. If your a PC user I highly recommend this software. It's also very easy to train others to use, which is very helpful when you lead a church of volunteers.

Cons: I don't like the licensing limitations. They need to create a version for mac as many of us are migrating to the Apple world.

Pros: What I like most about Easy Worship is that it is a very convenient and user friendly software. I have used it for over 5 years at our church and honestly haven't anything bad to say about this software. It's easy to maneuver around in and with the click of a button you're ready to go.

Cons: I am very pleased with this software, and can honestly say I haven't found anything I don't like about it.

Overall: EasyWorship is a life saver for music departments in churches. I don't even know how we would operate without it. I'm pleased with the user friendly software and like the fact that I'm not limited to only their backgrounds for the presentations.

Pros: Easy to set up and pull songs from CCLI. Graphics are neat and not too distracting. Moving between slides is fairly easy and hassle-free.

Cons: Crashes when loading videos. Hard to input own backgrounds. Overall UI looks dated and old. I've also lost a lot of songs that I have manually entered into the program, which is frustrating.

Vendor Response

by Softouch Development on August 02, 2018

Hi, thanks for your feedback! Based on the mentioned cons, I believe you may be using one of the older versions of EasyWorship such as version 2007 or 2009. Since then, we have released versions 6 and 7 where we had a total User Interface redesign that has made the program look much more modern. With the videos and backgrounds functionality, we have expanded and improved both the ease of use of each of these features and the supported formats to try and make these features as user friendly as possible. With the loss of songs, this could have been caused by the older database format that we used prior to EasyWorship 6. With versions 6 and 7, we began using a much more efficient database format that should make this issue nonexistent. I would like to offer up some of my time where you and I could talk about any of the potential concerns you have with the newer editions. If you would like to take me up on my offer, please contact me at support@easyworship.com via email. - Fred

Hi Jonathan, thanks for your feedback! I wanted to let you know that our software licenses are all actually cheaper than or equal to ProPresenter's options. Here's a quick pricing breakdown; single license: $399 EW, $399 ProP, campus license: $499 EW, $799 ProP. If you add all of the feature modules to ProPresenter, the price climbs to $3392 with features like Alpha Module costing $999 whereas EasyWorship already includes that in the $499 price tag. Two additional features that will cost extra with ProPresenter are NDI integration and a smartphone remote but EasyWorship includes both of these for no additional cost. We do also include a subscription option that includes free upgrades to new versions of the software for as low as $18/month. We want you to get the program that works best for your church, but if budget is the biggest issue, you will get the most out of EW for the price.

Hi Mackenly, thank you for your feedback.

ProPresenter, however, for the same kind of license is an additional $300 more expensive than our software. On top of this, ProPresenter charges additional fees for different software modules to add features to their program; whereas, we do not. Our license is all inclusive and we do not charge users to add additional features to our software. If you have any questions, please contact me at our support phone line. Fred

Pros: This software is fairly intuitive. You can set up and plan your serve in the left side bar, including songs that have been pre-entered, PowerPoint presentations, videos, and more. The middle column shows you what is in your queue, while the right column shows what you have ready to "go live" for the congregation. You can choose to make it "live," "clear" or "black" for your ease of navigation. The good thing about this software is that it is easy to use and can help make your worship service look good.

Cons: Sometimes I feel that I cannot move through the songs fast enough. I also dislike that it is easy for the cursor to scroll off the screen because of the connection to the projector.

Overall: We have been able to make our worship service easy to follow with the lyrics of the songs we sing being visible on the screen to visitors. Our pastor's and other preachers' sermons can be followed on the screen, allowing him to emphasize parts that he wants to bring out.

Pros: The software is fairly easy to use and, as long as you remember the title of your existing project, everything is easy to find. You can store short films, images, and music clips other than what is already given. If you like to make your own images to use it's no hassle to upload them. A large benefit to the program is its scripture search option for the Christian Bible, which comes with a handful of different translation options for each scripture.

Cons: The software seems a bit lack luster. The preloaded images are very plain and you'll only use about a small handful. There may be a minor malfunction here and there, such as freezing or slide jumping.

Overall: The overall experience has been okay so far. Yes, I have run into issues with minor glitches, but those may be a problem with pending software updates rather than the program as a whole. Going live has been easy and it's also great that I can access and edit other slides while keeping one running live. However I do feel like it can be described as a pretty basic slide show presenter overall, minus the specific scripture search,

Pros: t is easy to use, besides its value in money does not compare with the help that easy worship offers to the work of the church. You can get all the tools you need in the service in one software, so everything is at hand.

Cons: There is nothing negative about easy worship, but an clock could be added for each part of the sermon, for example a minute counter for worship and another for the sermon, so it would also help us to manage time.

Overall: Easy worship helps to improve the way of doing each service in our church, although it is not the most important graphic tools, with them you can achieve better results by taking the sermon to each person, since it works with the learning methods of each type of person as they are the visual or auditory

Pros: This is simple software that still tries to provide for every need. Once set up, it is fast and easy to train somebody how to use it. I've had Jr. High students sit down and be able to run it after a one minute explanation. This software has improved drastically over the years and is currently very stable and reliable.

Cons: Updates and bug fixes have been slow in the past. Difficult to setup initially with your hardware if you are using foldback (third screen for stage monitor) and different screen ratios.

Easy to use but buggy and very slow development curve

Pros: Interface was sleek and straightforward with a very good modern design. The developers knew the things end users needed to see in real application of the program.

Cons: Updates were incredibly slow, product development is glacial - I recall looking at the screenshots and clips concerning a coming Mac version years ago and its still not available. Support team was defensive about users questions concerning slow development pace. For instance there was a tendency to name the app by year until they got slow on rolling out the promised updates and had to start renaming them. Promising software in principle, disappointing company in practice.

Hi Pastor Dotson,
Thank you for your feedback.
The initial release of EasyWorship 6 took longer than we would have liked, but I am
happy to inform you that since we have released EasyWorship 6 in late 2014,
we have had a total of 32 updates that have added a total of 81 features to EasyWorship 6
as well as too many bug fixes to count. During the initial release of EasyWorship 6, we did have
to sideline our Mac project to be able to effectively address and correct bugs in
EasyWorship 6. However, I am proud to announce that the Mac project is back on track and
is the focus of our main developer currently. If you have any questions, I would be more
than happy to work with you.

Wonderful for our small church <3

Pros: I love this product. We are a small, mostly Hispanic church. We often have visitors that do not speak Spanish, so this allows me (I work in the music/visual/audio production) to post bible verses and songs on our screen for visitors to follow along!

Cons: I have no complaints. This product is a blessing!

Pros: Easy, entry-level software for churches just beginning to move into this arena. Good for churches that are looking for something that volunteers can easily pick up and learn but need little functionality or options.

Cons: It is very limited and gave us a lot a problems shutting down. It was limited in the format types that cooperate easily. It rejected media seemingly all the time for unknown reasons. It was slow.

Overall: It got us by at the beginning but ran quickly into limitations.

Thank you for your feedback. It sounds like you all may have been using EasyWorship 2009 or older. I wanted to let you know that we actually released a complete redesign of the software in 2014 that includes many features that our main competitors either don't offer or charge additional for, all at no additional cost. On top of that, we are constantly adding new features to the software such as an alternative to PowerPoint, full NDI support, and a remote application for iOS. We have also added a subscription model to make the cost less of a burden for smaller churches who may not be able to afford a full one-time purchase. We will continue to attempt to offer the same great service and support all while keeping the program easy to use and affordable to everyone.
If you would like to try out EasyWorship 7 or if you have any questions or further comments, please let me know.

Excellent help, very practical and functional,

Pros: Excellent help, very practical and functional, to make your presentation known.

Anyone can use it because it is very easy.

It has multiple tools that help you project your message. You can include power point, audio, images, videos.

Cons: Sometimes it tends to be a bit slow when going from one paragraph to another, so it requires you to select the same option more than once.

Overall: It has been a great help in the services and conferences, it connects the speaker with the people who listen

It is very easy to use. It has pretty much all the option we need in any given service

Pros: It is menu driven and this adds to the ease of use and understanding to navigate though the song lyrics, Scriptures, announcements, and sermon notes. We have at least 10 users in my church and all of them pick up the basic concept on how to use it in a few minutes. The online tutorials are very helpful.

Cons: The limited functionality when designing custom slides. If we need a proffesional look on the slides at my church we have to create them with Photoshop.

I can create my best presentations in my private Sunday lessons without using my bible.

Pros:

What I like the most is that I can work in a practical and fast way with this program, since with the integration of web and audio, it is easier to use websites, YouTube videos and audio files to create attractive presentations of worship.

Cons:

The only thing clear is that there are people who have the same problem as mine, since most do not understand how to configure it to adapt to the Spanish language, must have a manual or include quick access, choose the language you prefer.

Overall: It is a blessing to be able to count on tools that facilitate the functioning in a wide group of work, like the churches, to be able to create dynamic and exclusive presentations in a single solution. excellent program.

Hi, Thank you for your feedback! I wanted to let you know that while we do not currently have an interface for any language other than English, the program will accept input from most languages (especially widely spoken languages like Spanish, Chinese, German, etc.). Also, we do have a manual in the form of a Help file. The Help file can be located inside the program by clicking on Help and then EasyWorship Help or located online at easyworship.com/help. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me (Fred) at support@easyworship.com or by telephone (918-250-1493).

This software is extremely easy to use...thus it's name. Have been using it for over 10 years.

Pros: This software is very simple to teach anyone, at any age, to use. I am currently showing a 12 year old how to use it so she can be a part of our worship service. Also, it's very economical for even the smallest of churches to purchase and utilize.

Cons: There have been occasional issues with updates. Also, there have been times during VBS or other programs where we could play older DVD's through the software.

Overall: Makes the flow of our worship service exceptional.
