Very glitchy now ???

Hey guys the last few updates have not really improved the ease of use, just made it more clunky with too many steps. I preferred it when it was simpler. The search function is really, really clunky and just keeps popping up before and after things all the time, and it takes forever. I usually have to tap things three or four times to even get them to work now. I do have an older iPad but it still should not be this slow, unresponsive and clunky. Awesome app regarding content, but just don't like all the pop up windows and extra steps. Too heavy. I liked it better when it was simpler. I'm sad to say that if this is how it is going to stay and if it is glitching purely because it is too heavy for my old iPad, I may have to find a different Bible app to use. Hope not. :)

My fav bible app, but could be better

I would like the option to purchase some versions currently only available online. I would also like to see the apocrypha made available from within BLB or a similar App. Likewise the Koran would be super useful to search out texts etc. the prefaces from each of the versions would likewise be useful.
Still my favorite after many years, and my first choice of study-help.

Handy help

When learning NT Greek at college I came to see how English Bible translations have been affected by the theological biases of the translators. That does not say they are wrong, simply that one single English word may not provide the several ideas suggested in the Greek and Hebrew... BLB allows me to quickly view the root word, parsing and several ways the word has been translated in other Bible passages.
