Ratings and Reviews

Clean functional application


Now I know the cool feature of the iPhone is the ability to get things off the net, but I think it is pretty useless to have a Bible available only through the web like most of the other iPhone Bible apps, plus even though the speed of the iPhone data is nice, it is still too slow for searching and jumping around the Bible. This one stores the Bibles on your phone for your use ANYTIME and ANYWHERE regardless of having data signal availability. That is worth the price of admission alone. The interface is nice. I am not sure if I am using it to the full potential but I cannot see where I can select, book, chapter, AND verse. If it is in there and I just cannot find it, then please tell me where it is. Often in bible class or during service, the reference given to you is down to the verse level.
Other than that, this app is excellent, stable, and an excellent price. I would recommend without hesitation. Plus, the developer replies to your inquiries in a timely manner. Let's you know he cares and that is a plus in my book that will keep me paying attention to his development endeavours.

Fantastic functionality and user interface!


This App is great! Can't say enough about it. I've been using the previous version up to this point. It wasn't difficult to decide on the upgrade to this "premium" edition of the application either. The version choices are outstanding with possibly more to come. The developer has continually improved the previous version and I'm sure will continue to do the same for this one. The upgrade in price is more than reasonable considering licensing fees with some of the versions. Keep up the great work, Kenny!

Almost Suits My Needs


Since my last review, this app has addressed my concern about putting the Daily Reading plan native. Cool! However the plan is weird because the chapters to read aren't consistent from day to day. For example, Monday read Genesis 1-2, Tuesday Romans 1-2, Wednesday Psalms 1-2. It isn't until the following week that you pickup on Genesis 3-4, or Romans 3-4. I don't think that plan is good for comprehension.

**Original Review**
The only thing that disappointed me about the app is that the Bible In A Year feature is internet dependant even if a bible recides on the phone. All the cool features like bookmarks and notes cannot be applied when using the internet Bible In A Year reading plan. In contrast, I think the reading plan in the app Holy Bible by YouVersion might be better because of the text formatting.
I think BibleScope is a very good app. If the reading plan was native, then it would be even better IMO.
