The best app I’ve ever used


The overall quality of this app is excellent. It’s a joy to read, listen to and study. The narrator is outstanding. If you want a delightful and flexible way to learn the word of God, this is it. Not only is this the best bible app I’ve ever used, it’s the best app I’ve ever used.

Great tool


If you are hesitating over the price of this App. Rest assured it's money well spent, bearing in mind it's a one off lifetime payment. I've learned so much in a very short time, whilst being entertained. I'm going to get lifelong pleasure from my purchase.
