Love the content. Need some tweaks to app

Thanks so much for developing this app. I love the content and it helps the scriptures have a new meaning.

I do wish that you would make two tweaks to the app. When you listen to audio it doesn’t mark that day as done. Also, if you choose to read the scripture in your own bible you still have to open up the scripture on the app and scroll through it in order to have that day marked as completed.

Please consider these tweaks from a daily user. Thanks!

I look forward to reading

I just got this app because I decided I wanted to try and read the Bible in one year. I did not do much research, I just picked an app. God lead me to this app. It is wonderful. I expected it to give me a few verses to read everyday, but it is so much more. It includes daily scriptures from Psalms/Proverbs, the New Testament, and the Old Testament. It also includes a reading that follows up with the scripture you read. The reading helps break down some of the scripture that might have been hard to understand in that context. It has helped me relate what I have read into my daily life. Then it also includes prayers that you can use as you finish. What a wonderful tool.

The only request I have is a function that would allow highlighting or note taking. This obviously is not imperative, but would be a nice addition.

Unable to Refresh Commentaries

I'm a little frustrated. Its only day 6 of the new year, and I was excited to use this app to push myself to read the Bible daily-- however since day 3 I've had issues with the present day not loading (my time is sectioned out so to have it already downloadable/just THERE ready to read on the app is essential to me) but now the overall content is not loading at all. Like another user, I deleted the app and reinstalled, tried using data vs secure wifi.. nothing has allowed the content to restore. The website link has no support or contact page, and I'd just like it to be fixed so I can carry on with my commitment. If the app isn't going to be resolved, even having the breakdown of the year (chapters to read per day) as a PDF on the website would be helpful. I can follow along on my own.
