Love it

Thank you for all the hard work brothers. It is a wonderful app. It is so good to have everything in one place. I especially like the new "Notes" feature. I was hoping for so long for this feature and was so excited when it was announced. I couldn't wait to update it.

I have had one problem (which I suspect could be my device) but I thought I'd float it in case it's a bug. When in Life and Ministry I've found that if I'm in Spiritual Gems or Treasures from God's Word and I've just looked up a scripture in the source material, when I try to go back using the back key I often get an error message to the effect that there is no study content available and I have to back key again and exit to the main meeting page. I'm finding the error is cumulative requiring me to do a restart of my phone to clear it. I'm reluctant to delete the app and reinstall as I don't want to have to re-download stuff. It may just be my phone is getting old and the firmware is buggy.

Issue with IOS 11.4

Great app, love it! But for the last few weeks I’ve had problems with two separate iPads both running IOS 11.4.
The first problem occurs when trying to access a publication. The download spinner at the top of the screen goes into an infinite spin and the publication never loads.
I’ve been able to fix this problem in the past by uninstalling and re-installing the app, but that solution no longer works.
The second problem is that the app no longer installs properly. You can see this right away by going to the Publications tab because most of the publications types are missing. I have tried installing the latest update but the problem persists.

Trouble with iPhone 4S

First and foremost, thank you you brothers for all the hard work in making this app better and better with each and every update...I am especially loving the new 10.0 version that supports the Study Bible, but the thing with this update is that the 'study pane' that appears on the right when you tap a scripture/hyperlink/the new floating personal study button (on my iPhone 4S) appears completely black both when you either tap the hyperlinks to an article/scripture and when I try to use the new personal study feature in the Study Bible. I've had no such problem with my tablet (iPad 2) but it happens to be reaccuring thing with my phone, even when I deleted and re-installed the entire app. Please help fix this bug for it will really be handy to have this feature available on my phone for metro and or informal witnessing
