Ratings and Reviews
Hopeful, but frustrated
A long time user of Mantis Bible Study, I had upgraded to iOS 11 only to discover that Mantis 4 no longer worked. So I was glad to see that Mantis X has finally been released, as I use the app daily and have invested lots of time in it.
However this 10.1.5 release feels still a bit green. Scrolling is missing, as well as numerous other features of the previous app. Bookmarks (now markers) behave very differently - I’d like the option to see only those markers in a selected folder as before, not all markers all the time, although the ability to see all markers in all folders is a good new feature. The conversion of old bookmarks creates markers with strange titles instead of the complete reference.
In short, glad to see the app is now available, a bit frustrated with the ‘conversion experience’ (sic), and hoping to see point releases in the very near future to fix bugs and add missing features!
Love this Bible app and the people who created it
I have used this Bible app for years. It is fabulous. I can type my own notes within the text, highlight in different colors, bookmark, study, memorize, and quickly look at scripture references as I read. It truly has everything I could want in a Bible and I can take it with me wherever I go. I too own an I-phone and it crashed after installing an update. I thought everything I had was gone forever. I finally had to uninstall and reinstall, and was sad that my NIV version was gone along with everything else. I contacted the company as a last ditch effort and they responded almost instantly. They explained how to get back in to an account I didn't know I even created and they helped me get my Bible back with all of my notes! I was so relieved! Be sure to create an account and backup your Bible often, and you will love this app!
Excellent app but no support
I purchased this app years ago for my phone. I have used it almost every day. It is a really great app, and I like the Bible versions that are available. The problem is that there is absolutely no support. My iphone is now so old that it will not update to the latest versions, but I cannot transfer any of my purchases to my new iPad or a new phone, so once I go to a new phone, I will lose all the money that I have paid for added Bible versions. I have sent numerous emails to the company, but there is nobody left to respond. I used an email when I was in school, and now that email is no longer valid, but the app does not allow me to put in a new email, and there is nobody left at the company to even read emails or respond to them to assist me. it is one of the best apps out there, but I highly recommend that you never buy additional versions.
