Daily Driver

I use this app almost everyday to read along with my regular bible. It’s nice to be able to adjust playback speed and create playlists.

The navigation is someone lacking. It would be nice if when every time you go to a new scripture reference you didn’t have to re-select the book, then chapter, then verse; YouVersion app has this function right. It would also be nice to advance whole chapters at a time instead of just verse.

The sounds seems alright to me, Alexander Scourby is a house hold name when it comes to bible reading. He reads with clarity. The way he empathizes words and phrases it helps to understand the KJV language. You can also tell this is not the first time he’s read the Bible; he reads it as if he knows what’s going to happen next (kind of hard for me to explain what I mean). I’m thankful for this app. It helps me get through my bible reading.

Love the content (Bible), hate the app

This is the most expensive app I have ever purchased. I had it on my phone and my iPad. I paid for the extra speed on my iPhone because I had it on my iPad. After an update, extra speeds were removed from my iPad - forcing me to buy it if I wanted to keep it. Spoke to the developers and basically they said tough luck.

Now after a couple of years they change the speed so there is a 3-second delay between each and every verse. It is extremely annoying. Do the developers ever listen to their product before releasing. The app upgrade said they added the delay at a user’s request so they could think about the verse. That is ridiculous to change an app so they could do so. First off, those users could play the verse at a slower pace. Why offer a faster speed only to put a 3-second delay before each verse at 1.5 speed. I did not test f the delay remains the same in all speeds. It doesn’t matter. This needs to be fixed. There are lots of good Bible apps out there that are free. I paid more than $20 for the app and speed upgrade. Please fix it.

Very Pleased

My wife got me this app a few years ago and was very happy with it till this last update. I reached out via email to the developer and they responded with great speed and super friendly(as you would expect being it’s a Bible app). The resolved all the issues I had and even took the time to explain and instruct me in using some of the other features that had been added. I would highly recommend getting this app if you want to have the Bible with you and being able to listen to it is a plus.
I personally like to create playlists of either words or phrases I am studying and I can listen to them while I operate equipment or just driving. That’s a huge blessing. Faith comets by hearing of the word of GOD.
We are in a free country and we need to take advantage of it while the time is available.
