Great devotions - some bugs in app
I've used the Our Daily Bread devotions for many years now and enjoy them a lot! I will frequently bookmark the ones that speak to me and share them at the beginning of church meetings.
I do have one issue and one request. The app will freeze if I try opening it at certain times of the day - I'm not sure if that's when it has the heaviest load and thus has trouble downloading the devotion or what. The second is that I find the "You read x days in a row!" counter very demoralizing. I only use the app as part of my weekday routine so every week I'm starting over and feeling like a failure since I can never get over 5. I would love to see an option added to be able to turn that off. Some people may appreciate that extra bit of motivation, but for others, it's very guilt producing - not what you want from a devotion app that is supposed to build your faith up.
Thanks for listening!

Useful feature to add
I’ve been reading Our Daily Bread since I was a kid. In recent years and to my delight, it’s an app. But like most apps, this requires a password. This is annoying especially when you have forgotten your password. All I want to do is read the daily passage, pray and move on with my day. So I’m going to use the online interface. I’m guessing the password is required because of the possible purchases from the sponsor could be compromised. I get it. However once I put in my password, I wish that I never have to do it again.
That is not the case. For some reason, I have to re-enter it. I’m trying to figure if there’s something I did.
Nonetheless in the time it took to create this first and last review, I could have figured out the password and enjoyed all the wonderful things I enjoy about the app itself. I love the night setting, the font adjustments and the passages. This app has been a convenient way for me to start my meditation and enjoy Bible study. I hope the truths are always rooted in the Bible. May those who speak be blessed and encouraged to continue God’s work. (Just imagine that other guy voiced ODB for how many days and years. Well done good and faithful servant!) A new voice each day is interesting.
First of all, this whole program is truly a blessing. This app has made it so much easier for me to strengthen not only my faith, but my relationship with God. I have learned so much about the Bible and about life that I could not have learned on my own, considering my busy schedule and plethora of other excuses.
This app has made my worship more efficient in most cases, but there is something that has been bugging me. I really like to make a note of something that sticks with me, and the private journal is a perfect concept to do so; however, it is incredibly glitchy. Half of the time, I lose a whole entry because the save button disappears. This happens nearly every time I write an entry, and there is no apparent cause. Developers, if you could work on this, I would greatly appreciate it!! Other than that, I wholeheartedly appreciate this app, and I’m not sure who I would be without it. Thank you so much!!
