EasyWorship is EASY! - I spent two years researching all different flavors of worship presentation software. So why EasyWorship? EasyWorship is exactly as the name implies. EASY! The software is stable. I've never had a problem. Pastor wants to change a bible verse, or a "shout it out" song, I can get it on the screen faster in EasyWorship than any other program. Point, click, select the background, and go live.
Display Foldback in EW2009 is great! - I've just downloaded the trial for 2009. I was particularly excited by the new Display Foldback option. All I can say is that this works just brilliantly. Showing the tags and the first line of the next section is just brilliant. This feature really blows me away! Well done, I shall definitely be upgrading.
Great advert for EW - Went to a gathering of approximately 1,500 people to celebrate 125 years of the Salvation Army in Tasmania, Australia. EasyWorship 2009 was the presentation software, and its full range of capabilities was on display: foldback display, videos, PowerPoint (integration), video camera feeds, VJ mode...the works. One thing that showed the beauty of EasyWorship for me was quite a simple thing really. During a prayer time, the leader started singing a well known Salvation Army song that was not on the schedule. The piano player knew it and started playing by ear. Within a line or two, the words were on the screen. Wouldn't have happened using PowerPoint! Congratulations EasyWorship on a great product.
First Reactions - Finally implemented Easy Worship. I was worried about how the older members of the congregation would take to the new technology. They love it, as one said, "I can now praise God and sing properly because I can see the words which I couldn't before when we used the hymn books."
EasyWorship in Spain - I discovered EasyWorship about 5 years ago. Since starting to use it in the church, the news spread like wildfire throughout Spain. The result…well, lots of emails and phone calls from churches wanting to know more about EasyWorship. Just want to say that it gives me great joy to teach it throughout the churches in Spain.
Learned in 5 minutes – over the phone! - So... I was supposed to be on video duties this morning to run EasyWorship! Ooops! My wife was there running the service and found a friend––he had never used EasyWorship before. In 5 minutes I explained how to find songs and put them in the schedule, the preview and the live sections... even how to import an image and create a new song from scratch. He ran the whole service, and it all went well! He said he even enjoyed doing it.
Anyone Can Learn It - I taught 4 people how to use EasyWorship, 3 of which are Not good with computers, but all 4 can run EasyWorship. It's just such an Easy program, Anyone can learn it. Trust me, Get EasyWorship!!!!!!!
Fantastic Support from the EW Team - A big thank you to Terry and the EasyWorship team who sorted out 2 machines that would not load for me today. If you need a reason to select EasyWorship over other programmes, the support team is a good reason.
EW the best...Ever - Everything I need to get creative is right there–video backgrounds, the ability to separate words from backgrounds, and the one I love the most, FEEDS. We can run our cameras to the screen without having to switch the source and get that nasty blue screen. The message and nursery alerts are a plus. I currently use it for worship and we have a TV in the lobby that we use to run announcements and clips (I used to have to make a DVD every time it was updated). Now we can install EasyWorship and run everything from the schedule. Thanks.
Who is using the software? - The best advice I think anyone can give is make a list of the things you need and then go back and look at the software again. Consider who it is that will be running the system and putting together your presentations. Will it be sweet little 'ol Mary or a gaggle of techno-geeks? I think you'll find that EasyWorship wins out.
Easy to Use - I have a 13 yr old boy as the EasyWorship "Technician" and simply showed him what EasyWorship was all about. Even in the first service he was showing scripture verses on the screen as required even though no-one had listed them for him. Such is the ease of using EasyWorship. Highly recommended.
EasyWorship vs. [software name omitted] - We decided on EasyWorship for several reasons, mostly the clean, uncluttered, easy-to-use-and-understand user interface, but also the support available through the forum. EasyWorship is lots easier to learn and use. A fully tricked-out version of [software name omitted] will cost you at least double what the stock, out-of-the-box EasyWorship version will, and that's also the fully tricked-out version...there are no add-on purchases required for full capability.
