    This is the best bible app have ever used
  • Great ease of use

    By Lucy Poppy
    I love the way I can quickly insert another Book and chapter in the Scripture reference space at the top and the app will move to that place. It’s great for keeping up with speakers who have several Scripture references. I also like being able to change versions of the Bible for comparisons. I have never really cared for a Bible App until a friend told me about this one. I have arthritis and it’s getting harder and harder for me to hold a book of any kind, so I’m so thankful a friend told me about this one.

    WOW, y’all get 5 stars, for super-quick response, (and the app is actually well-designed and intuitively laid out. I gave the 3 stars hoping you’d notice my issue. THANKS for responding so quickly. I think I figured it out. My reluctance to enable the Bible keyboard explains the issue I’m experiencing, I would imagine. Since I also pay bills and conduct e-commerce with my iPhone, I declined to enable any third-party keyboards (no offense, please). Thanks for all you do to ensure your users are served well. You totally rock. Blessings - - - - - - - - - - Got an email from you folks this morning, indicating I have new font options. That’d be VERY cool for images, not something that’s a huge big deal in reading the Bible. But there’s no update, which I’d assume there would need to be, and nothing in the version history that indicates this is a new reality. So I’m trying to figure out what I’m missing. I suppose I could be a slow learner, buuuuut…let’s just say between the email and the printed word in the App Store, I can’t figure this out.

  • Read

    By Tinaanshi
    Loved the word of God.
  • I dislike a recent change

    By WAvara
    For some reason the authors have chosen to remove a VERY important feature. When trying to quickly find a scripture, you can no longer choose the verse itself. You can drill down to the book and chapter, but NOT the verse. This is a VERY important feature to have, because scrolling through trying to find the verse is ridiculous. It is so important that I’ve subtracted TWO stars for removing g this feature. PLEASE add it back to the app. Thank you! edit: I found an option to turn this feature back on! I’m not sure why it doesn’t default ON, but there is an option to turn it on. I added one star back since the option is actually there, but doesn’t default to ON.
  • Verse consistently resets

    By Deemiya
    When I’m following along service to read some verses my phone goes into sleep mode. When I wake it back up, it takes me back to the beginning of the chapter every time. Thinking I can get around the issue, I hit the verse that I want it to stay it as if I’m going to bookmark it, it still resets! Extremely frustrating because I cannot follow with the sermon because I’m too busy scrolling trying to find where I left off. I do love this app and the reading plans. However, this hiccup is interfering with my usability. Please fix this. Thank you.
  • So thankful

    Love having my Bible with me no matter where I go
  • Raised by a great preacher father and mother

    By Ken Bolin
    We were raised by a father and mother who knew how to reach God’s Throne Of Grace Love Mercy. They were back in those days where not filled with education but I never thought they were stupid. When they set down With God’s Word eight of up kid’s saw what The Holy Ghost Filled parents knew exactly what God had wanted them to say and teach us. People I know what’s wrong with all of America today We The People have turned our Hearts’ Lives’ & Back’s On God & Jesus Christ Our Only True Savior. I wouldn’t ever change one thing my parents thought us I’ve failed in life but always knew what I must do. That was to repent I am 81 years old Fact it’s been a blessing joy peace loving caring family of God. My advice to all is turn around from all of your wicked ways repent and praise Jesus Christ and live a life of & for Christ Jesus.

  • Quotes from NIV

    By quoteversescorrectly
    If you are going to quote a verse from the Bible, PLEASE quote it correctly. Today’s verse of the day quoted “ The Lord is my shepherd, I “lack nothing.” (Psalms 23:1 NIV) That is INCORRECT! It reads “The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want”. NIV Let’s remember Revelation 22:18-19. 18 “ I warn everyone who hears the words of prophecy of this book; If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book. 19. And if anyone takes words away from this book of prophecy, God will take away from him his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book”. So let’s quote the Good Word correctly.
  • 5 stars.

    By bdonnelly.270
    This app has led me so close to Christ in every way possible. I felt so alone because I was the only Christian in my family, but I began to grow via this app. I learned to believe in myself and know that He has a plan for me. I don’t know where I’d be without it. It gives those an opportunity to grow even without a paper bible. It gives you daily plans and verses to make you find the good in every day. I wouldn’t necessarily recommend this to non Christians. It is very religious and you could get easily lost if you didn’t know the proper way to handle it. It’s an amazing tool to grow closer to Christ and has made me better in a million ways. I’m so thankful for this app and can’t find a single flaw in it.
  • Downgraded

    By jsbkbzdkjbcd
    No major problems, but in the previous version, I was able to read Scripture on one side and take notes on the other. Is there any way to do the same in the current version?

  • A Great Blessing Overall - But The Plans

    By Russ In Ohio
    The Bible and all the versions which are available here in one app! As long as our Electric and Battery powered devices work may this app continue to grow with The Blessings of The Lord Jesus! Have been using this app for I don’t really know how long. A few years I’d guess. Started “Plans” some time ago and have completed thirty to date. Began another today and before reading the plan, I’ll often research the plans author to find out who they are and what they teach, live and believe. A plan on Prayer and written by Steven Furtick was selected today. I honestly have never heard of him. I don’t watch much TV and listen to or watch very few “TV Preachers”. After researching Steven Furtick, I cannot bring myself to read a plan authored by him. Prosperity Preachers, Motivational Speakers / Preachers, Excessively Rich Preachers. Pastors who will absolutely refuse to be transparent in their financial records, their stance on homosexuality, homosexual marriages, abortion, and other “topics” we all know God has definitely answered. So as far as the “reading plans” portion of this app? I guess one learns to select, review the author and decide. I personally feel some, such as Furtrick, don’t belong here. Thank you.

    By Colette Chung
    Expansive amount of studies, your activity can be public or private, and I also love that there are so many translations available at your fingertips. It has a built in ability to make art from your favorite verses, reminders for plans, even font options. Has a “streak” indicator, encouraging you to connect with the Word daily. Awesome app bringing the Good Book to people everywhere!
  • Audio cuts off after chapter when screen is locked

    By Afrobroman3
    I absolutely love this app and listen to the Bible while I go running. However, lately the audio doesn’t go to next chapter when the screen is locked (it works when screen is on and in the app). Is there a way to fix this so it goes back to flowing seamlessly to the next chapter again when the screen is locked/off?
