Ratings and Reviews
Great app!! Few small bugs
The app is great for reading or listening. The audio version of the text is very moving and powerful. The ability to highlight notes is a nice touch.
Only issues I’ve see are that the chapters of Philippians are in reverse order (the chapter headings say 1-2-3-4, but it’s actually the text of 4-3-2-1 respectively. Additionally, it would be great if the audio still worked when the phone was locked. As it currently is, you have to have the app open to listen.
Developer Response ,
Hi there, we hope we have now fixed the issues you mentioned!
Wonderful App!!! So happy to find it! :)
This relatively new app is wonderful and works flawlessly! I was very pleased to find it as I love the NRSV and immersion reading.
I do hope as time rolls on that an option for the audio to automatically continue to the next chapter is included - not a deal breaker by any means though as this is a VERY generous offering of love for the money. I LOVE THIS APP!!!
BTW: The Commentary/Study guide extra is WELL worth it!!! The app easily stands as an amazing offering and valuable spiritual resource without it as well though.
Thank you so much! :)
Good audio aspects
Love that I can read or listen in my preferred NRSV format. My one issues would be that there is very little headings or labels so it is hard to know what book of the Bible you are actually in the middle of reading. It also does not advance visually so it is hard to tell what verse was just read if you are not following along. If those things were fixed it would get 5 stars hands down.
