Pretty, but needs some work

This is an attractive app, with some interesting "helps" to accompany the Bible text. It's frustrating that the app sometimes forgets where I was reading from and reverts to 2Corinthians chapter 1. Related to this, a bookmark feature would be helpful. Also, spaces are missing between some of the words. I'm eagerly looking forward to an update, hoping it'll address these issues and turn it into a mature, 5 star app.

Thank you!

Great app - works every time, so quick to find any particular verse, am even growing to like the cheerful little graphics. Wouldn't be without it.

Bookmark please.

This is a great bible, one of the best I've come across. As a new Christian I have found features such as the Who's who and quiz really helpful. One improvement would be to have a bookmark option.
