Ratings and Reviews
My husband and I read ODB every morning after breakfast. Im sorry to report that on most mornings it freezes up and we cannot finish the reading. I have deleted the app & then downloaded it again but we still have this same frustrating issue. Please advise me on what else I might do to correct the problem.
I used the hard copy of ODB for many years but chose the on line app as a more environmentally friendly alternative. I would think it might be my internet server, but we do not have this problem on any other app & it appears others are experiencing the same issue. Maybe it can be addressed soon.
We are indeed grateful for the inspiring & timely devotions & those who write & produce this publication. We have gotten to “know” the writers & can sometimes guess who is writing from the content. These Godly & talented people have become our “friends”! Thank you for providing these devotions that help us focus on spiritual ideas that encourage us in our walk.
Love the app, when it works
Ok, this is really getting annoying! When the app received its newest update version the app would not open! Realize everyone that updated to the new version was also experiencing the same thing! Wrote a review and the developers advised to delete the app. Once that was done the app worked. Now as of April 1, 2021 the app is blank for today’s reading, and when you click on the month it opens and the spinning wheel just continues to spin like it’s trying to open! VERY FRUSTRATING!!!! I thought it was a April fool joke but this is getting annoying because the next day it’s the same! Someone on the develop team is/has been slacking on working out the quirks to this app!!!
And other main issue is when the new version was updated you all took away the motivation count of how many days being read! This was a cool feature and very motivating!! WHY?!??! Not liking none of this. And when mentioned about the day count on my last review complaint, the developers only address the crashing of the new version, and failed to mentioned about the day count. Could address that as well please?!?!?!? God bless!!!

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!

We truly appreciate your feedback jkaz23. The freezing may be due to app cache, have you tried clearing it lately? We have passed your second comment onto our development team for review. If you need more help please feel free to contact us at email@example.com
