Very good but still has minor glitches in places

David’s reading is fantastic and the text is highlighted as it is read. The bible notes section is very limited and undeveloped compared to the biblegateway app being limited to a single verse and no cross device support.
If you purchase the bible in a year you will be rewarded with a great selection of readings however functions like turning off go to that day are not remembered which is frustrating if you don’t remember where you got to.
But if it wasn’t for these things it would have got 5 stars. I certainly would buy it again as it is is worth every penny!

We just update the app to fix the problem some people had with the downloading of the audio.

I hope this helps.

I bought the cds but this is a great app

Its nice to have readings and audio together in one app and for it to be easy to navigate.

My bible app of choice is accordance and there i have the niv text phrase tagged so its easy to look at the underlying greek or hebrew and i can play the audio in iTunes at the same time. Or quickly switch to other texts or open up a study bible or commentary or lexicon.

But this app is great to be able to concentrate on the text and audio and not get side tracked in the original language.

It would however be nice to change the font and page scrolling.
