"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 3.0.26
NOTE: Users updating from 3.0.20 or earlier who have thousands of notes, highlights, and/or bookmarks will experience a delay the first time any list of those items is displayed in this version while the program builds a more efficient representation of its user data database. After that, the same lists should be nearly instantaneous regardless of the number of notes, highlights, and/or bookmarks stored in the database.
* View and select from a list of your most recent searches.
* Close any book or close non-active books from the titlebar or pane tab menu.
Fixes and Improvements:
* Deleting an item from the list of bookmarks, highlights, or notes on the iPhone would delete the item but not update the list.
* Reduced the delay for users with thousands of bookmarks or highlights when adding a new one.
* Made the "backspace" button visible on the calculator style go-to-verse screen.
* Gave the "near proximity" spinner the correct background color in iOS 7.
* Reading progress list now shows the current reading, not the first reading, as its default position (iOS 7).
* Cloud Sync on book notes/bookmarks for books that are not installed was crashing.
* Fixed a problem with deleting Cloud Sync history in which not all historical records were being removed.
Great Bible App & Great Customer Service!!!
This is the coolest bible app and is worth every penny! With searchable notes & highlights, my iPad mini is all I need to bring to bible studies & church! I have used Laridian digital products for years and it was great that I didn't have to pay again for books I had since my PDA days (do people still use these?). I don't know of ANY developers that do that sort of thing.
On the day before yesterday, I installed the newest pocket bible app (was still using an old ver. 1.4.7) and mistakenly created a new account when I registered it and then purchased the "Upgrade to Advanced Features". I later found my original Account ID and corrected the registration so I could download all my purchased books - but then I couldn't get the upgrade I just purchased using the other account ID! I emailed support at 6:57 pm ... at 7:05 pm, the problem was fixed! AWESOME FAST!
Don't even think about, this is the bible app you want!
I have used this program for years and find that it really meets my needs superbly!
Initially, I wasn't sure that I liked the paging system and didn't understand why it needed to be that way. The longer I use it, it really makes total sense. I especially like the advanced feature of the tabbed interface and the new feature of being able to quickly switch between the tabbed interface and the windowed interface. I like being able to the original Greek meanings by just clicking on the Strong's number for a word.
There are too many features to mention all of them but this program is a full and robust application. I carry my iPad to church and use this as my Bible everywhere I go.
If your into Bible study, I've been using this for years, and I believe this is the one Bible app with the most features. Very easy to navigate in books and between books.
If people would really use this app, they would see how great it is.
Another great update.
