"PocketBible is one of the most full featured applications I have ever used and has a ton of features and functions to make Bible study a very pleasant experience." Matthew Miller, ZDNET.com
"The toggle feature moves you quickly between pages or books. Amazing! No one else has this feature." gracefirst
"I'm impressed. Simple, clean interface--and what's amazing is that they remembered and restored past purchases to my new iPhone--and it was easy! Now that's service!" Cvogan
"If the AppStore gave out awards for the best app this would win it hands down. It has the cleanest and easiest to use UI of any app I've used on the iPad. If I could I would give it 10 stars not just 5." RS.C.

What's New in Version 3.2.3
* Recognize and take advantage of the increased screen size of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus instead of allowing iOS to scale the screen, which caused text to be blurry.
* Support "custom Bibles" from BookBuilder which specify custom versification by referencing existing versification schemes. (Reader Engine version 1.073.)
* Allow the Font / Size / Brightness setting window to rotate to landscape and to fill the full width of the screen.
* Allow user to change password without forcing them to delete books and user-created data (notes, highlights, bookmarks, etc.).
* Allow user more affirmative control over disposition of user-created data when logging into a different Laridian customer account.
* Use https: connections throughout, even though no personal data is being transmitted.
* Do a better job selecting italic and bold/italic fonts with families that support heavy, bold, demi, semi, medium, etc. variants.
* Fixed a bug that caused text-to-speech reading to stop at an empty verse.
* Table heading tags were getting filtered out of notes.
* Opening a devotional with no existing start date would create a start date, overwriting the existing start date that might not have yet been sync'ed from the Laridian Cloud.
* Fixed a memory leak when displaying lists of bookmark categories.
If your into Bible study, I've been using this for years, and (I believe this Bible app has the best features of any I've seen.) Very easy to navigate in books and between books.
Excellent support. Always making it better.
Pocket Bible By Laridian
This is the Cadillac of them all. It has the best and most features of any Bible app. Very user friendly. I've tried many different Bible apps, PocketBible is the best one out there bar none!!!
Thank you Laridian team, love it.
Really appreciate all you guys do, but the splash screen needs some work. The royal blue doesn't fit in with the icon or app design. Might look a little more snazzy if you used a different color.
