Enjoying it!

I'm using the DR. I like how the Bible in one year reading plan gives you a little of the Old Testament and New Testament in parallel tracks everyday. Makes it very enjoyable. And it never loses where I left off.

App runs smoothly. I have an old 32-bit iPhone, but the app is fast and responsive.

The ease of tapping verses to share to my apps, like notes or messengers, is very convenient.

If you haven’t experienced this version of the Bible yet, you must do so! It’s one of the most accurate translations of the Bible available, and it is put into each incredibly accurate format in this app.
I have numerous of their products and all of them are first rate.

Many useful features!

I have several other bible apps and I always end up studying this version due to its features. I am able to choose a black background with white font which is easier on my eyes, different font sizes, highlighting and/ or bookmarking passages (in addition to viewing them in one list), emailing passages, and most importantly, excellent footnotes that enable me to understand the word of God! I am now able to read the bible regularly and remain interested. Easy to use on the iPhone as well as the iPad.
