BenchApp 2.1 for Android and iOS are live!

After weeks of rejections from Apple, the newest version of BenchApp has been approved. This brings back and improves our "Add from Contacts" feature that was a huge success in a previous build but temporarily had to be removed. We hope this makes it even easier to build your roster!

Keep the feedback and feature ideas coming. We have a lot more coming!

Please note: Poor BenchApp Performance

We're aware of the poor performance and increased lag when using BenchApp website and app, and we truly apologize for the inconvenience. We are working as fast as we can to improve and exceed the performance you have come to know and enjoy. Please bare with us!

Additional Downtime for server upgrades

We are working to provide an even better experience for all BenchApp users, and to do this we must again increase our server capacity. We will be taking BenchApp offline for 30 minutes starting at 1pm PST March 8th. We apologize for the inconvenience and short notice but we hope that the upgrades will be worth it! Stay tuned.

Scheduled Downtime

As BenchApp continues to grow in popularity, so does the taxation on our servers. At 9pm PST tonight (Feb 27th), we will be upgrading our servers to provide a more reliable BenchApp experience. We hope this downtime will be less than 20 minutes. Thank you for your patience and understanding!
