A Life-changing App!

This app is very well done and gets better all the time, especially with the recent addition of study plans. I use almost every feature of this app every day... being able to sit in the quiet of the morning and study with so many resources that I can cross-reference is incredibly enlightening! I sometimes wonder if my notes will overload the data capacity of the system... but it seems to do fine.

I would like to see the ability for multiple copies of a book, such as the Book of Mormon. I’d like to read an unmarked version for different experiences and purposes. For example, I’d like to read a book and only highlight references to Christ, or for any other special purpose, but keep my original version with all its markups.

A little more basic formatting and editing ability added to the note taking would be nice, but I still love what you have. Thank You for a truly life-changing App for me!!

Why did you make the new font so ugly?

The thing I liked best about using this app to study over my hard copy of the scriptures was the experience I had when scrolling through the text. The last font, spacing and layout was very well done from an aesthetic point of view. It was pleasing to the eyes and made for not only a great tool but also a pleasing experience. Now the text is small and harsh and goes to the far extreme of both sides of the screen (where are the margins?). Yes it provides more content on one page but that content is too small and difficult to use. Yes you can manually change the size of the text in tools but that only works for that one chapter. You have to repeat the process every time you advance a chapter. The irony is when you pull up the footnotes they are in the old font and size while the main text is in the new aesthetically challenged font. It makes me want to read only the footnotes. Why can’t we have the best of all worlds, more info, pleasing aesthetics, pleasing font and for heavens sake some margins. All I know is that my study was more rewarding and spiritually focused in the last version. Isn’t that what we are striving for?

I look forward to an improvement in the next version. That or let those who want revert back to the old way or at least have that option.

Disappointing Search Issues

I’ll leave my original review as it stands. I fixed the search results. When you type a search keyword, the results that pop up are as I stated: hymns, topical guide, and dictionary. However, if you tap on return, the true search completes. This pop up info is what has been introduced with this version. Changing app behavior like this is incredibly confusing. The release notes don’t even address this change in behavior. I find this change in search behavior more complicated and less intuitive than before because the new contextual shortcuts appear to be search results. I can’t be the only person confused by this change.

I don’t care about the GUI update. Search has either been severely hampered, or it’s broken. I have come to rely on the power of this app to find all references to a keyword in every downloaded document on my device. Now search only shows results for hymns, topical guide, and bible dictionary, or it shows results for articles not downloaded yet, but it shows NO RESULTS for scriptures. This is stepping us back over ten years, which is how long it’s been since I used the Topical Guide to find a scripture. Surely, search isn’t meant to be this useless now?
