This app is a pleasure to use

Sept 2017 - The night mode was fixed quickly. I am once again enjoying this app. Also, the search function has greatly improved. I am learning Vietnamese and it would not search using Vietnamese words. But now it does. And the search results are much easier to navigate than before. This app not only has most of the functionality I liked in the Windows program, but it is quickly taking on most of the functionality of the better iPad apps. Being willing to pay money for a good app also means getting an app that is not only ad free but is also being continually improved. Many thanks!

Earlier- I still love this app and it's still my favorite Bible app. But the recent version messed up the night mode. It has a bright strip on the top and the bottom and the letters are way too bright. So until those are fixed I've had to change to another bible app for easier reading, as I read quite early in the morning. Otherwise it's a really good app and I regret having to change.

First rating - I've used e-sword for years on my laptop. And was glad when it was available on iPad. I haven't used a lot of different bible apps. And this is the only paid bible app I've purchased. But I have been very happy with it. It feels familiar to the pc version but with the iPad format. It seems very stable and well built. It was worth the money to get a good investment.

Everything you need for deep study but lacks one key feature

I jump from app to app depending on the need at the time but I find myself coming to this app the most simply because it has everything I need (Bible, commentary, lexicons, devotions, early church fathers etc. ). It’s very customizable as well as intuitive, and (most of all) the majority of material is free. My only grip that there does not seem to be a way to export notes. Which leads me away from writing to much in this app since there doesn’t seem to be a way for me to extract them very well. Other than that, it’s great to use as reference, learning and reading in general. Have loved it for awhile now.

UPDATE (2019): This app is still my go to app when doing in-depth study however it still lacks a decent way to take and export notes. What this app lacks the most is a way to synchronize notes and highlights across devices.

UPDATE (2020): I’ve been using this app for awhile now and I still have to only give it 4 stars. There is a lot to love about the iPad version of the app but it is still missing a way to synchronize notes across devices and another great feature that I wish they had is something that Logos has which is a way to quick search verses even with short hand. For example: 1 pet 2.2 would take me to 1 Peter 2:2. Or jas 4 would take me to James 4:1. This a super convenient feature that I wish this app also had. Other than that this app is still a great study tool even in 2020.

Developer Response ,

Airdrop is used to share the user files between Apple devices. Both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi need to be on to use Airdrop. Tap the "Resources" tab along the bottom of the app. Scroll the "Installed" listing towards the bottom where the User Files are listed, and tap the "Airdrop" icon next to the file you wish to share.

I have searched for many Bible Apps in the apps store and this one is by FAR the most complete. Every you need for bible study is here readily available and at no extra cost.....Strong’s concordance, Mathew Henry Bible Commentary(as well as many others), Bible Dictionaries, books and devotionals such as CH Spurgeon Morning and Evening devotional, Foxes Book of Martyrs, Works of Josephus and more! The app has a built in reader so you can listen while reading, I allows for the Split Screen function with in OS 11 (which You Version does not have as of this review). This app has it all! The only thing in my opinion that You Version has on this app, is the many bible reading plans which offer a easy daily schedule and ability to track your reading, in which you can share access with others making the networking easily available. HOWEVER that is certainly the most Complete Bible App out there for free and everything is easy to use. Wonderful job to the developer! Thank you for many Gods word so accessible and bible study so easy. Thank you And may God Bless you for your hard work!
