Overall as noted below, this app has been great, but with constant updates of other apps, it appears to simply crash regularly now which is disappointing... Really great work originally

The NET bible is a great translation, there are some really helpful study notes as one reads through this version. The process of choosing fonts, background colour and size are all straightforward as with a kindle.
What is a little frustrating is that it is difficult to remove bookmarked pages, or at least it is not clear how to remove them.
Overall however, a really good and worthwhile app

Suggestions please!

Awesome, awesome app! Please include (or make one for) the King James Version (KJV). Also, please make each new chapter of each book of the Bible appear on a new page. As it is now, with new chapters starting anywhere on the page (top or middle or bottom), the inconsistency means the experience of using this Bible app is not a pleasant one. This is especially important because this is a softcopy Bible not a hardcopy one. 😊
Please address this. Thank you. 😇😇😇

Seems great so far

I have just downloaded this app. I know that a huge amount of work has gone into it.
Seems good so far, great notes. Not quite as easy to navigate as the ESV app, and the verse number always appear with chapter numbers. Can this be turned off?
The sync option is a clear winner over other apps, so if you put the effort in to save your Sunday sermon notes using this app, at least you can usefully share them with your other devices (Crossway take note!)
Well done so far, I'm sure there are tweaks to come.
