Easy to use

I have and use both programs, this one and number 2. I still use this one most of the time. I developed different colors for highlighting different quotes. The different colors have come to mean different things to me. So it’s a good thing to have and use. But I can’t transport it to the new program because it is incompatible with it. So I would lose the colored markings that help me to find and better understand what I am reading.

It’s also easy to use. And it has good features that helps me to bring up and to also search for quotes I’m trying to find. The only problem is that it doesn’t have the newer books and the letters and manuscripts that have come out.

So, when I have to, I will use the number 2 program to get these writings that are not on this program. While it is more powerful, it is harder to use. You have many more steps to go through to see what your looking for.

An excellent tool!

This app has been polished and refined to a point that it is an excellent tool that does exactly what you need it to do. No fancy animations or extra fluff. I used an earlier version of this one back around 6 years ago and loved it then as well. Since then for some time I had used the EGW writings 2 app, and though it is nice to be able to listen to the books, it is full of bugs, and I the user interface is too complicated, and gets in the way of my focus on reading. The word search in this version that I’m reviewing is excellent, the ability to type in the reference for a book any get it instantly is great too! My plea to the developers at EGW estate is to continue to support this app, as I hope it continues to be available.

Not I but Christ ,


Still better than the new version. Simple and easy to load. Like many have said, having to log in every time in the new one is not easy and annoyingly complicated. This continues to be my go to app even though the new one has so many more features. I want to spend my time reading or searching not trying to get into the app.
