Best Bible app out there

I do most of my deeper studying through this app. There are many things to like about it. For one you have great notes from John MacArthur available with just pressing on the scripture. Then when you do so you can easily go right back to where you left off. You can also directly route to reference scriptures and when you are done looking at a reference scripture you can go right back to the last thing you were reading. Makes for very smooth and quick scripture referencing. Also the colors of letters and background can be changed. Well the background can change from sepia to grey to black. I prefer black with Jesus words in red. Also there are many Recources such as daily bible which allows you to go through entire bible in one year while reading 4 different books at once. There are daily devotionals. Each book has an eleborate introduction. MacArthur sermons are available that apply to scripture that you’re reading. It also has audio if you like that. There are also writings from other people in there that apply to the scripture. I love it.

Great app, great resources, but many glitches

Currently a simple review, but the app is truly a full Bible with intuitive to use, study resources of many sources from Grace to You. It’s great that you can find the notes for all of the chapter, or individual verses, as well as verses related and cross-references. And over-all, it’s easy to find the things you are looking for in the app, and the notes and highlighting features are cool (though I’ve read there seems to be some glitches with the highlighting features).

My only and greatest issue is the fact that the app has too many glitches which make the experience not impossible, but slow and poor in many cases. The arrow on the top left from commentaries doesn’t seem to work most of the time, and the app itself is not formatted in a way that fits correctly with my Iphone 14 Pro, but rather there are parts that are cut by the corners or the island at the top of the screen, which may seem more of a simple “aesthetic” issue, but I find that this issue is a little distracting, especially when I’m scrolling through the Bible and the names of the books are literally covered by the dynamic island of the phone🤣.

Please consider coming back to the app and fixing it up, it would be greatly beneficial to the app and to those using it. But nonetheless, the essence of what it does is very much there, so I can’t at all say I don’t recommend it. I would simply note that the user experience is a little finicky due to the glitches.

Some continual glitches that could be easily remedied

As much as I love the notes of the MacArthur Study Bible, and also much of the look of the layout, I have the same repeated continual problem as I saw at least some others have. Every time I use the app, at some point if I’m reading for long, the app freezes and won’t move; and then when it finally unfreezes, it jumps to the last chapter of Revelation. This generally causes me to switch to a different Bible app bc of the time delay involved, so I generally just defer to a different Bible app to begin with.
Also while I’m on the subject, the other little annoyance is in the switching from one scripture location to another. It takes maybe two or three taps on the scripture address to get it to allow you to search another address. I know this can be fixed because the YouVersion app used to do the same thing and they finally fixed that with an update. It was a huge fix.
And a little tiny thing is that having to select Old or New Testament is just another unnecessary step that requires an additional click. You can designate the move from Old to New without actually requiring us to select it.
Also the Headings for new sections in the middle of books are not in bold and look like part of the text. One example is in the middle of verse 8 of 2 Samuel 19. There is a paragraph switch with a heading title that looks exactly like the rest of the text just stuck right in the middle of the verse.
