Ratings and Reviews
One of the better ones
I hunted around for a memorization app and tried a lot of them before settling on Verses. So many competing apps are (IMO) cheesy. A couple are better, but you’re forced to either pony up or endure constant nags and ads. For me, it came down to Verses and/or Remember Me. I prefer Verses’ interface. I like the ability to track my progress and ‘close my rings’. I generally avoid subscriptions but $5/year is pretty reasonable, I think. The app looks great and works pretty well. Criticisms: ‘speak out’ can be wonky. (To be fair, it wears a “beta” label too, so...) One of the verses I’m working on consistently tells me I’m getting it wrong when I use ‘speak out’, even though I’m reciting the verse exactly as it shows in the app. ‘Word bank’ also has a quirk - you really need to pay attention to whether words are capitalized or not. I’ve tapped on ‘The’ only to find that I’ve chosen the wrong word - it’s ‘the’ (or vice-versa). Nit-picky, I guess. Finally, I wish there were some way to manually enter a verse using a translation not offered by Verses. I’m usually fine with the NKJV, but occasionally use others for memorization (example: TPT, which is not one of the options offered.) Lastly, I live on my iPad and Verses does not natively support iPad, especially in landscape mode. All that having been said, I still find it well worth the $5/year for the help and encouragement it provides in getting me into the Word and getting the Word into me.
Highly Recommended App for Scripture Memory
This is the app for Scripture memory I’ve been looking for since there have been apps. There are eight methods for reviewing/learning verses - all of which I’ve used through my years of memorizing Scripture. Some of the methods have multiple levels of difficulty. You can place verses in groups that YOU label (Beatitudes, Psalm 23, etc.) which is handy and keeps things organized. You can visually see your progress and memory “health” for each verse from the rings. The app has three Bible translations to choose from - NIV, ESV and KJV and so verses are very easy to add. But, this also means if you have a verse memorized in an older version or a different translation, you can’t really use the app for that verse. I am currently using the free version. This may not be an issue in the premium version. All in all, the best of the six or seven I’ve tried through the years.
Love this app except for the Speak Out
This app has been super helpful with keeping me accountable for scripture memorization. I love the different games and how the app keeps up with verses you haven’t practiced in awhile through the green inner circle. Overall, a wonderful app that I will keep using!! My only complaint is with the Speak Out feature which is supposed to allow you to speak the verse(s) into your phone to check for accuracy through Beta voice recognition. However, this feature does not seem to work properly. It gets overwhelmed by long passages as well as you speaking at normal speed. Even if I speak like a robot word by word (which takes a long time if it is a few verses), it will still mark words incorrectly that I am clearly saying or will lag and mark as incorrect because it cannot keep up. Would love to see this feature get updated in the future versions of the app because I think there is an advantage to speaking scripture out loud at certain times rather than typing. Still would highly recommend this app to friends wanting to memorize scripture more regularly!
Developer Response ,
Thanks for reaching out! I'm sorry to hear this. Speak Out is still in testing mode so there will be some errors, but hopefully as we continue to release updates, it will improve.
