Ratings and Reviews


Jake Klusewitz

A little bit hard to figure out, at first. But, overall, it is a wonderful program and the app support is great! Thanks so much! God bless.

real basic, way to much $$


It does ok if all you want is some real basic stuff. Reading is a pain because they only open one chapter at a time. So you have to click an arrow to go to the next chapter, real clumsy. Also I looked for abotu 10 minutes to buy the NIV add on and never did find it. If there is an other option go another way...

Some translations are need purchase separately

Myungjae Jeong

This application is included only default translations. if you need another translation, you have to purchase from 'web store of A-Bible' (ex - Korean, NCB, NIV, etc..)
If you need bible application included another translations as default, I think don't care to search another program. ( I think, another reviewer is Korean, same with me, haha : )
