Ratings and Reviews
Love the content but
It is a great devotional to wet the appetite for more of God. Many times I am pondering certain point and thoughts and talking with God about them. I like that it is short and to the point. I also like that I can click on a link to see the fuller message or which book it is coming from.
I love that I can click on the share button and open it in Safari and Pastor John has a recording where he is reading it himself with emphasis and inflection! What I don't like is for iPhone XR I have a hard time hitting the share and favorite button because it is in that area with the speaker or front camera. I have to hit it like 20 times before it will do anything. All my other apps that I use that space for works fine so I'm thinking it is the app.
Like others have said, app crashes on each opening but not again. Setting glitches aside, I don't agree with the reviewer who stated this is only an attempt to sell books. It often links to the website where the complete article is. Sometimes you just want to read a quick message that is encouraging. If you're a Bible scholar doing a thesis look elsewhere.
This app is the technological equivalent of serving caviar on a ritz cracker. The concise snippets are well thought and poignant, often sequestered from pre-existing books, but the app crashes each time I open it anew. This is truly a minor inconvenience in the grand tapestry of life, but I'm pretty sure a 17-year-old intern could remedy the issue. Five stars because you should use the app, regardless the seconds it costs. Flowery language so someone important will read this and fix it and give me back the annual hour-and-a-half I spend waiting for the crash/reload cycle.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
