Ratings and Reviews
Tons of glitches. :-(
Was really hoping to be able to write a nice review for any app that promotes reading the Bible. But this is not the one. Must say, I'm a bit disappointed. Can't always depend on the borders going away after tapping the screen, and the minimize maximize function rarely works. Those are like the two most important things when trying to read a Bible passage, imo.
Also, sometimes it book marks my passage if I'm kicked out of the screen due to time or whatever. And other times, I have to go look up the verses again. Makes it a bit cumbersome when trying to follow a sermon while in church.
I would recommend shopping around a bit before settling on this app. Hopefully, the authors are looking at some serious upgrading, and soon!
Truly worth the money!!
Thank you for completing my spiritual life with this amazing app! Truly it's the best of best bible app available!!
Suggestions, if possible, i'd like to re-order my bookmarks/notes particularly in the folders. When you have more than 30+ bookmarks it's really a hassle to reenter all of them just because you need certain verse to go ahead of others. And occasionally, to redirect the bible study flow with different people thru all those bookmarks! I'm loving the yearly reading plan. Just wondering if the markings can be by chapters only on top of by dates. So that in case you are on the run and won't be able to finish all 3 or 4 chapters. You can still mark it down at which chapter did you finished and continues on later. Thanks for considering about these in the future updates! ^^
Please keep up the great work! May God continues to inspire and work among you guys to benefit all these users to walk closer with Him!!
This Bible application is outstanding!
I tried out several different Bible applications, and this one was by far the best of them all. I love the ability to highlight and make notes. The split screen is really nice when I can have the NIV on the top screen and the NIRV on the bottom screen, so that I can more easily explain scriptures to my children. It's also great to be able to search by key words, in case you want to find a passage of scripture, but can't remember where to look. I would give this application more than 5 stars if it were possible.
