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!

Update. Still needs major improvement

This was supposed to be a big improvement but I don’t see how. The entire layout has changed to the point where it not only looks like a whole different app, it behaves like one. Bringing up side by side comparisons is more cumbersome than it used to be, bookmarking isn’t what it used to be.

Well, they fixed the search problem but it’s still more complicated than it should be. I.e. for me to be able to highlight text in NASS, I have to go into settings, turn off Strong’s, exit settings, highlight my text (which is still complicated) go back into settings, turn Strong’s back on, and then exit settings.

I have an idea..... bring back the old Mantis, make it iOS 11 compatible, and call it Mantis Original. Problem solved.
