Ratings and Reviews
NIV Study Bible
Having a full-featured NIV study bible on my phone is fantastic. Thank you for putting this tremendous resource at my fingertips! One comment (and one request), however, for your consideration:
The 2011 version of the NIV is less faithful to the original text than the 1984 version. I realize some may be more comfortable with the more "politically correct" word substitutions found in the 2011 version but others (like me, I guess) think God's word is not "improved" when overlaid with our cultural preferences. In fact, the truth of God's word is far more likely to be compromised when we alter it to be more acceptable to the world.
That said, I recognize some prefer the 2011 version. Any chance you might offer a NIV 1984 version of this app as well?
Appreciate app, but not intuitive
Edited: ever since the last update, this app freezes every time I open it. I’m no longer able to use the app. Please fix this!
I have appreciated studying the word with this app. It's really helpful to be able to read the word and glance over at the study notes without having to hunt for the related note. The app has made Bible study more pleasurable for me, specially since my vision is not that great, so reading a print Bible can be uncomfortable.
However, I recently bought one of the commentaries. Ever since, I have had a lot of difficulty figuring out how to display the Bible, the notes, or the commentary when I want them. I think I may have figured it out now, but it literally took a couple of weeks. At first I could just see the commentary, then I was able to get the commentary and the Bible next to each other, but I couldn't get back the study notes. I guess once I figure it out, I will enjoy, but right now, it's annoying.
A complete resource for Bible study
Tecarta’s NIV Study Bible is technically sound, regularly supported, infinitely expandable and easy-to-use. Whether one wants only to read the Word or deeply study and compare events surrounding the scriptures, this application will not disappoint.
Make side by side comparisons to other Bibles, navigate to cross-referenced passages, highlight verses, review furnished study notes highlighted by icons, organize and save personal notes, enjoy maps, illustrations, photos and videos ... so much but so usable for ANY user. Though I could write much more, I recommend reading the fact sheet to see if the features meet your needs .. and then having confidence that you can easily use this application even if you’re a technology novice.
