Simple and easy to use.

Hi. New Christian here. I just picked this up Thursday and I love it! Not only am I able to read God's word, but it also gives you a daily scripture and devotional. I'm also able to bookmark and save scriptures and make notes on it too. The search makes everything easy to find. I also bought the commentary and Strong's concordance, as well as download the KJV so that I can fully understand everything and make sure everything I interpret from the Bible stays in its context, and I LOVE how easy it is to switch between everything, keeping you at the very same spot. Also love how just from turning my phone sideways can pull up the commentary and bible side by side. I recommend this to everyone. Plus I can read it ANYWHERE!!!!

As a pastor with lots of resources, I find this app to be my go-to on the phone Bible.

Over the past 15 years or so, I have invested thousands of dollars into digital books and resources to help read, study, understand, preach, and live the Bible. And while I do use those resources, many of them are for specific uses, or get too bogged down in either clutter or navigation. Therefore, I have found myself returning to this app over and over again.

I have purchased a couple of the Bibles in the app, and they are remarkably similar to the feel of the hard copy for an app, and as I mentioned, they do this while still maintaining ease of use!

For anyone starting out, let me highly recommend getting the app and then purchasing the “Quest Study Bible” within. I find the questions and answers in that Bible to be most often the questions people are asking about each passage.

One more thing that I love about the app? It will automatically sync your highlighting and notes, etc. across multiple devices, so your personalization is always with you.

Simple and easy to use

I’m not a pastor or scholar, just a gal that likes to study the word and enjoy my morning devotional. I was looking for an app that was geared for women, but have yet to find one that really works for me. This app had so many positive reviews that I thought I would give it a try. I’m so glad I did!

While it isn’t pink and pretty (yes I said that), it is so simple to use. Let’s be honest, an app is not the same as holding the Bible in your hands. But this is the next best thing.

And I’m really enjoying the morning verses and devotional a. I didn’t get the app for this reason, but have had some wonderful reading regardless!
