Ratings and Reviews

Fort Worth Frog ,

Great format and content but missing a crucial piece.

This is a great app that contains a wonderful and important collection, however it fails on one key issue in that it appears to be missing Dr. Elliott's guide for completing the anthology in 15 minute/day through a set of selected passages. It would be a great improvement if this app at a minimum included a text of the guide. It would be incredible if it linked directly to those passages so that one could complete the collection using only this app.
