Encouraging Content

Like others have said, app crashes on each opening but not again. Setting glitches aside, I don't agree with the reviewer who stated this is only an attempt to sell books. It often links to the website where the complete article is. Sometimes you just want to read a quick message that is encouraging. If you're a Bible scholar doing a thesis look elsewhere.

Great Content

This app is the technological equivalent of serving caviar on a ritz cracker. The concise snippets are well thought and poignant, often sequestered from pre-existing books, but the app crashes each time I open it anew. This is truly a minor inconvenience in the grand tapestry of life, but I'm pretty sure a 17-year-old intern could remedy the issue. Five stars because you should use the app, regardless the seconds it costs. Flowery language so someone important will read this and fix it and give me back the annual hour-and-a-half I spend waiting for the crash/reload cycle.

Valuable content trumps simplistic design

The app is a bit buggy but worth every minute spent in it digesting the quick daily scriptures + thoughts. I’d suggest this to anyone & everyone. It’s easy and profound - a great way to get some incredible spiritual insight in an extremely simple package. They could do just a couple of quick tweaks to make this a really great app, but until then I’m totally content using a decent app because the valuable content trumps the usability.
