Best BB app so far

Well laid-out. I join the request to be able to flick pages, but it really isn't bothersome to scroll if you're familiar with the text. It NEEDS to be modified to allow adjustable font-size, and allow for scree rotation! Otherwise great. With those changes it's worth the $5.00 price. As is it's a little overpriced. Thanks for the app tho it's appreciated and useful!

This use to be my favorite app, but it was updated

Since the update I can no longer user this on my iPad ..... it does work perfectly on my iPhone 7 though.

Best big book app period no other can compare.

It's great I love the book mark. The feature where you can type in a page and it goes to it so it's easy to get to a page in a big book study. It looks great on a big screen like the iPhone 6 plus. The daily quote and the sobriety counter are awesome also. I have read the book once but now reading it off my phone makes it fun. I show it to people in meetings and they like it. I would recommend this to anyone in AA. I always have the book in my pocket and I don't have to lug around a actual book. I give it five stars there is absolutely nothing wrong with this app but that's just my opinion.😊
