Ratings and Reviews
Really enjoyed this app until the update. There is a banner at the top telling you to upgrade for 1.99/mo. It never goes away. It wasn’t there upon my initial down load. Some suggestions: give font size options. It’s also annoying to have to scroll down if the verse doesn’t fit into the screen. I love that the pages turn with the reader automatically. I’d pay a one time fee but monthly doesn’t seem justifiable. I can deal with the banner add. Lol. Thanks for the product. It really has potential. One more thing. When I hit the play button often it will start playing two different sections simultaneously. I’m guessing the developers will solve this soon!
Ok app but why pay twice?
This is a Bible Gateway app, in effect. Bible Gateway already charges a $4/month subscription fee (and also has audio). Why does this app require an additional $2/month fee? Total of $6/month? Would love to know why this app is not free if you already subscribe to Bible Gateway. That would be my first suggestion - make this free to Bible Gateway subscribers. Frankly, I think it should be free regardless, or there should be no more than a $1.99 ONE-TIME charge. The app is ok, but I do not think it is sophisticated enough for a monthly subscription. Other suggestions: 1-add chapter and verse (since all there is currently is a mention of the chapter by the narrator at the beginning of the chapter). 2-add selection of verses in addition to books and chapters. 3-needs font options. 4-needs option to look at more than one verse at a time. 5-needs the ability to minimize the player ribbon. 6-needs the ability to sync across all devices (just as Bible Gateway does). Thanks.
Good & one-of-a-kind, but needs work.
I’m a pastor and have a pretty intense daily reading plan. I listen as I read along, or sometimes just listen. Using an iPad 2 and iPhone 5S.
I used it a few months before paying. The cost was worth it for me to use offline. But it might not be worth it for some. The other translation options available on the paid version didn’t matter to me since I only use the NIV on the app. This is the ONLY Bible app that meets all criteria I’ve searched years for: 1) has adjustable speed; 2) displays only one verse at a time [easier to follow] and; 3) has a dramatized NIV version (keeps my attention much better than voice-only narration.
1) Make last listening/reading location syncable across devices.
2) Provide adjustable font size, so I don’t have to scroll down when reading on my phone
3) Provide a Night/Low Light reading mode
4) Fix the two bugs in the premium downloaded version where the chapter doesn’t automatically advance unless on WiFi and freezes up whenever it comes to another place where an ad would have been on the unpaid version. [This happened to me when I was traveling for several days in an area without internet. I had to manually advance each chapter and restart the app each time it thought it should play an ad, which wouldn’t have played on WiFi but still would have skipped over]
