Great App, But Some Suggestions

This app is awesome, especially when you're visually impaired. The text adjustment is really helpful. The night mode is helpful too! I'll like to make some suggestions...


The text size is great but sometimes being visually impaired means your vision may fluctuate. Some days it's really good and some days it's bad.

I go to prayer meetings on Wednesdays and we read the great controversy. When my vision is bad I have to slouch over and strain my eyes, and having my face about 5 centre meters from the device. I use an iPad which has a 9.7 inch display.

So it would be really helpful if the developers would be able to make the text sizes larger.


As visually impaired people contrast is very helpful, the night mode is great but I would like customisable contrast settings. Like changing the text colour and background colour.


Voiceover is very helpful but when reading books voiceover won't work on text. I know there's a listen option, it's your choice if you want to add voiceover compatibly.

I hope you can take consideration for visually impaired people, and add more accessibility features.

Thanks! God bless

What a beautiful gift to have and use regularly on my iPhone.
Many is the time I have been able to access quotes from religious materials and read them in context.
I have found the app really easy to use and navigate through. I love the reading record of what you have read in the past. It’s so easy to go there and continue from where you left off.
A huge thank you to the developers of this much appreciated resource. It is so helpful to me in my walk with the Lord.
God bless you each one and all who use this app.

Great concept, but recent glitches

I love this app and I’ve been using it for quite some time. Unfortunately, recently there have been a lot of glitches. First my subscriptions didn’t show up properly. I would receive a notification that a subscription had arrived, but when I attempted to access it, nothing was there. Now it appears all the books have disappeared from my library with no apparent way to bring them back. I also found that my highlights have disappeared. I’ve tried logging out and in again but nothing seems to work. It’s gotten to be point where I can no longer use the app for any real purpose. I hope these problems can be fixed as I have loved the app in the past and it’s a wonderful way to read and study Mrs White’s writing.
