Ratings and Reviews
None better than e-Sword
I have used this program on PC and MAC for many years, and am totally delighted to find it available for iPad too. There is simply no better program out there for me. The access to numerous free Bibles, Commentaries, Dictionaries, Devotions and More makes this a FIVE STARR APP in my view.
I guess I'm used to the PC version but after using the iPad version for a year now I have the following comments. This would be a great 5 star app if the 'book and verse' index were more intuitive. Trying to find your book reference both across and down is much less intuitive than just scrolling down a list. The same goes for the chapter and verse indexes.
Having to load a new concordance every time you switch from the OT or NT is also quite inconvenient.
Also, not sure why a split screen isn't used to reference the editors. I have two large Apps on Physiology and Anatomy, and the other a 100 volume plus reference work, that have these features.
I have supported this Ministry because of the great work they do, and will continue to do so, but everything can be improved. : )
I’ve been using this app for several years and the PC version even longer. It is truly an excellent resource of versions, commentaries, devotions, and dictionaries, and it’s easy to use. I also love the external resources for more versions etc. It is very popular for good reason.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
