Worship Assistant Worship Assistant

Interface: Worship Assistant gets an “A” for effort interface-wise, though the program does fall short of being classified as “simple” to use. If you have some experience with database-type programs, you’ll find Worship Assistant rather self-explanatory. If not, the various screens that are included in this program may prove to be overwhelming. Usability: A few points have to be taken away from Worship Assistant due to a complex interface (that doesn’t necessarily have to be so difficult to navigate). However, there is a Help file that user can look at, and this file is quite thorough. If a Help file is enough (test this program out first), using this program can be simple enough. Main Function: UI difficulties aside, Worship Assistant does work as promised. Church organizers can keep track of everything from rehearsal times to choir selection using this program. The one drawback to Worship Assistant is that every detail must be entered into this program manually, and this might prove to be somewhat difficult.

In addition, service songs can be organized as preferred. Choir masters will find this feature particularly helpful. Value: Worship Assistant retails for $69. While there are other programs of this sort on the market, the church program selection is somewhat slim, so Worship Assistant might be worth those extra funds. This reviewer recommends checking out the 30-day trial offer prior to purchase.
