Love this app!

I have the print version but the gutters are so deep and the Bible is so large, it a pain to carry. I love this. I have it on my iPhone and my iPad. It’s wonderful.

Finally got an NIV study Bible!

I've looked at the NIV study Bible different times, but never purchased it because of the size. I like my NIV thin Bible to carry in my bag. Now that the NIV study Bible is an app, I'll always have it with me on my phone for convenient study and reference. And as I get use to using it; I might just buy a physical copy to keep in the office. Two thumbs up! I would do more... but... I only have two thumbs!! 😀

Latest update

I don't know what happened but this last update does not work on my iPad. I love this and it has been my go to bible. I tried deleting the app and reloading it with no success. The opening page comes up and then shuts down. Please fix this bug. Thank you.
