Disappointing and frustrating
As a student with Liberty University there's a lot of my required reading that's electronic through Lifeway. While it hasn't crashed on me, this app is jerky as I scroll through the reading making it easy to lose my place. Every time I have to move the "page" it delays then jumps. As a student, I need to maximize my reading time and this slows me down when I'm constantly having to readjust where the words are. I wish I had the option to open these books in the Kindle or iBooks apps for smoother reading. Lifeway, please make that an option if you're not going to improve the app!
Don’t buy Lifeway Download books. Reader app doesn’t work.
I downloaded a bible study book, and the only way to open it was with this reader app. While the website says other sites allow you to open/read, this is incorrect. Problems: 1) when I attempt to highlight a section, it DELETES the text. No way to get it back. There is no ‘delete’ feature so this is a mystery. 2) the TEXT feature does not work. At all. 3) touching various chapters in the book does not always take you to that location. 4) no way to communicate with anyone at Lifeway about a refund; just an online blog type of similar questions. There is a live chat feature which does not work on the weekends. :( So I now have a partial book, with the sections that are important to me deleted. I see why this app has a 2.7 overall star rating.
This app will work for about a week and then it will run into some issue where it won’t work and there is no support. No help button no troubleshooting nothing. I enjoyed the app when it worked. Most of the problems lie in texts that have imbedded videos. It will work until a certain point and the. It will tell you that it is preparing videos and will just lock up and freeze. It thought in the beginning it was my internet connection. I have a T1 at work and it still does it there. No thanks I will move on to something somebody actually supports. Not a very good Christian witness if you ask me. Shouldn’t do something if your not going to play full out in his name. Such a shame it would be a nice app.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
