This is a GREAT app But

I love this app A LOT actually but something went wrong with it recently and now I can’t use it. So I had to uninstall it 😔 I loved the fact that I could just put in the search bar just one word in a verse and it pulls up all the verses with that one word in it ANd it tells me how many verses has that word in it also. It give the whole Bible in over 25 different versions I can switch when I wanted I can have it in a diff language it also gives verse of the day and saved all my favorite verses in one area I got to highlight my favorite verses AND share them without it being sent all boggled where ppl had to download the app just to see it. SO I did really love the app BUT now it started to mess up now when I went to certain passages it would bring it up in the search but wouldn’t actually bring it up in the Bible part I couldn’t go to a certain book in the Bible anymore either. So I feel like I just lost all my data I was saving in all that I was studying in the app now! Ugh that’s SO frustrating too. But please fix maybe I’ll try it again later.

Used for years and loved….no more!!

Bible Gateway app has been my favorite over the popular You Version for years. I have been trying to bear with it for the last many months, but just deleted today because I’m wanting and needing to study and do my daily scripture writing but can’t. It opens….and this is pretty much a common regular and multiple back to back occurrence even in one sitting, over the last several months…it opens as normal with the verse of the day, then in seconds an ad pops up, which is expected because I use the free version of the app….however, once I view the ad, and I choose to close it rather than get it or purchase, the ad will close and go back to the verse of the day screen. From there I go to search for the book, chapter and verse I want to read and study, and select it, but instead of pulling it up, the app closes. Some days I have more patience to keep trying and eventually it will stop closing in the described manner, and I actually get to read in the location I selected in the app. But today…I’m done!! After it has closed on me a number of times and I’ve still not gotten to do my daily reading and journal writing of the passage that I was trying to select, my time and my patience with the app has run out. I’ve deleted and going to find another. This one needs some fixes or if that’s their means they use to get you to want to purchase the ad free version of the app….forget it! Don’t want it!!!

Latest Update Ruined This App

I have used this app quite enthusiastically for years. Not only was it my favorite Bible app, I rarely used another Bible app, because this one had such great features, and did everything I needed. With the latest update occurring a couple of months ago, this app is now totally useless to me. It now has several bugs it never had before (iPhone 12). The most frustrating bug is that it crashes every single time I open it. Not five, or six, or eight out of 10 times, but 10 out of 10 times. And most of the time, it crashes within 30 seconds of opening it. When it does stay on longer than that, other things happened, that never did before. It deleted several scriptures in my “Favorites” list, although they are still highlighted in the body of text itself. Often it will not go to a scripture that I select. It crashes almost every time I try to select something new from any menu. The “Search” feature is now horribly broken; when I type in anything in the search field, there is no way to close the keyboard and push a button to actually activate the search. The app has become literally useless!
I never write reviews. At least this one is the first in several years. The only reason I’m doing so, is because I used to love this app. I hate having to give it up, but I have no choice! Please fix it!
