I love the app. I am always using it to look up scriptures and especially love being able to use the strong's concordance to see the original meanings of the words. I also like having the various versions to see the different ways of translating it. I do like having the daily devotionals and few books as well. I do wish the devotionals had more flexibility to use the dates u want, like a calendar chart, so u can use the dates u want instead of only being able to use the current date, though I know u can flip the days back and forth. But if u want to go back to the beginning, it wld take forever. The computer version has this feature. It wld be nice to find a way to do that on this app as well. Overall, I love this app and use it all the time. Thanks!
Could be better
1. Navigating to a passage would be faster without the option to select a verse. The only time when I find this feature helpful is in Ps. 119, otherwise I would rather just go to the beginning of a chapter and read or browse from there.
2. When clicking the strong's reference numb, it's great to see the definition, but the reference numbers and links within the definitions aren't active, so if I want to see the origin of a word, I need to search the Bible for THAT number. Just let me click it.
3. Could the search feature allow for a specific book range? Also the Exclude option is a useful tool in the computer version.
All in all, my favorite mobile Bible app, and still a great choice for $2. Thank you for your ministry!
Great except one point.
I have used eSword on my computer for several years and loved. I recently got a smart phone and downloaded the app. The app is great. The only reason I dropped the rating to 4 stars is that I cannot access as many translations as on the computer. This is something I never understood about Bible translations: why would anybody who wants to get the word of God out for all to read put restrictions on its access and want you to pay to read it? I assume this is not eSwords fault but rather the publishers of the various translations. Regardless of this, I still recommend this app for its cross reference use and the original language definitions feature.
