A backwards step

I have used this app for a number of years and was very happy with it. I follow the M’Cheyne reading plan when the trial ended the app stopped working I had to delete it and begin again. Unfortunately the reading plan has gone back to day one and I can’t see a way of getting back to the place I was (as if I started on Jan 1). I cannot see what has changed let alone improved. I give 3 stars but really it could be 2.

Update problem fixed

I'm excited to see that latest update problems were fixed. Once again this ESV bible app is fantastic and a joy to use. It's one of my favourite apps and I use it everyday. I love the search facility and the simplicity and ease of use. Well done crossway for keeping such a great app free to users, with no adverts.


I love this app and I recommend it to everyone I know!!
BUT not it crashes every time I open it and i’m too scared to re-download is I have hundreds of notes in it and I don’t think they will be saved (despite having an account).
I use this app every single day and 24 hours without it is really frustrating!!!
