excellent Bible App, but where are . . .

first the review, then the “but where are . . .”

my ‘goto’ English language Bible app when original biblical language study is not required.

Good note-taking capability.

Excellent bookmark and note organization functionality.

Very good search functionality, but could be improved (see E-Sword for iOS and duplicate that search functionality present there, but missing in all Tecarta Bible apps).

Excellent selection of Study Bibles.
Please pursue obtaining licenses for . . .
the Archaeological Study Bible (NIV),
the ‘adult’ version of the Apologetics Study Bible (HCSB/CSB),
the ESV Study Bible (ESV),
the Enhanced Ryrie Study Bible (NASB95/NIV),
the Case for Christ Study Bible notes,
the Evidence Bible (NKJV),
the Scofield Reference Bible III (NIV),
the Reformation Study Bible (NKJV/ESV).
the Orthodox Study Bible (NKJV),
the Gospel Transformation Study Bible notes.

now for the “but where are . . . “

after installing logged into my Tecarta Bible account. My notes and bookmarked synced just fine, but none of my prepurchased resources were available (nor were they 24 hours later). However, the next day, other Tecarta Bible apps logged into that same Tecarta Bible account, after syncing, had the CSB and its two new Study Bible resources that I purchased as part of “My Content.” So, it is sort of a ‘one-way street’, so to speak, at the moment. Please fix. Many thanks for developing such a fine Bible study app.

Best Bible app so far

I have downloaded many free and paid Bible apps searching for the one that just fit my needs and offered features comparable to other top downloaded apps.

I have been very surprised to find just about everything I want in a Bible app to be included. The interface is very easy on the eyes, especially with the Avenir font. It is easy to understand the different settings and the way the menu’s work.

There are several ways to search and go to a book or verse you want. My favorite is the simple search. Type in the first letters of the book and bingo it shows up at the top of the list. Keep entering the chapter and verse and it immediately goes there.

I will admit I have just downloaded the app and spent some time getting comfortable with it, but based on my experience of doing the same thing with at least 20 other Bible apps, I can tell this is quickly going to be my only app.

Time will tell!

Nice free way to get and to listen to the CSB

Great app for reading and listening to the CSB.
> Free, for the CSB Bible
> REALLY like listening to the CSB. You can listen to the Bible offline if you want to download all the audio files (comes to 1.1G for the whole Bible, around 265MB for the New Testament).
> Clear format
> Apps is highly proprietary: Holman material only.
> Study Bible note sets can be purchased in-app. They are pricey, on par with their respective hardback printed versions (which I cannot understand) considering the rather narrow range of resources with which it can be used.
> Why full justified text? Creates wide spaces for larger font sizes
This will never be my “main” Bible study app for the simple reason that it can only be used with a narrow range of Holman resources. This app is a convenient way to have the CSB open along with my “main” Bible study app, for which I can purchase resources from all the leading Bible publishers.
