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.

Only two problems

I love this app, but there’s two minor things which I hope are changed or fixed soon.

My first problem is that this app crashes quite frequently. I don’t know why, or if it’s because of all the text loaded in the app, but it could do with some fixing.

About highlighting, it’s quite confusing. I couldn’t figure out to do it until I realised you have to touch the middle of the button specifically, otherwise it just brings up the edit prompt. You can edit the highlight settings in a different category, so I don’t see why it should be there. Especially because it’s confusing to new users. Maybe change it so that it’s a bit obvious? An edit button at the right of each highlight would be more efficient.

That’s all, otherwise this is a great app
