Encouraging and a blessing!

I learned of this app through YouVersion daily reading plans. I absolutely love the daily lessons and interactive style allowing the listener to spend time communing with God during the reading.

First - this app I found to be quite well rounded with many alternate choices for selecting type and length of meditations. Oddly enough I was very pleased with the narrator’s voices. They were soothing but not “syrup-y” or overly emotional. Just thoughtful. Without going on and on-suffice it to say I was blessed and uplifted by the first meditations-enough so to feel I would like this to become part of my daily quiet time with the Lord.

I’m a little disappointed at the high price but as a former developer I understand the time and cost invested in development of software. And if some of that purchase price is defrayed to additionally support other ministries-well one can’t possibly object. Offering discounts to low-income, seniors, and disabled is a superb thought though I’m not sure how one verifies. I myself fall into this category and $30 means other things go un-met. But spiritual growth is a necessity! Incidentally the response to the reviewer who was so unhappy with the price and short trial period - well I thought the response was quite gracious. Thank you.

Sadly Disappointed

First I would like to explain why I rated the app a 1..when I initially downloaded the app I was over the top ecstatic! It was everything I was looking for, I liked it sooo much that I told a lot of family and friends about it because I felt they could benefit from such an amazing app AND THEN everything went downhill.. I was no longer able to choose my meditation options (other than the standard 2min) I also couldn’t use any of the other features as well without PAYING! Soo for this reason i give it a 1 because I no longer have a use for the app bc I’m not going to pay.. the app should just charge ppl from the beginning because the little I can do without paying is not benefiting me at all...I will be removing this app as soon as I’m done with the review.

For those who are willing to pay...The app has a lot of great features and content.. If you are considering paying, the SHORT trial period should allow you to make the best decision for u.. in my opinion there are too many FREE bible/prayer/meditation apps that offer way more features than this one; the free apps may have additional features u can purchase BUT the free features u do get are enough for me to receive what I need (prayer,devotionals, meditations,etc)

I do commend the creators of the app BUT as mentioned before, I think u should charge for the app from the beginning bc the trial is 1) not long enough and 2) the free content given is not enough for meditation or prayer

Great but demotivated rewards system

First let me say that I absolutely love the devotions and the way the topics are laid out in case you have a specific need. The quality of the content is fantastic. However there are two downsides that need to be resolved. While it’s interesting that you can see how many continuous days you have done your meditation, it’s very demotivating if you’ve been going for 30 days and then you are on a vacation or travel somewhere you cannot download the daily meditation and it starts you all over again at zero. This is not encouraging, in fact it’s the opposite and makes you frustrated and feel bad. I read recommend a better way to track and make you feel as if you’re winning rather than getting in 30 days correct missing one day and being penalized. They should be looking at what’s best not telling you you’re failing if you miss simply one day of meditation and devotion and start all over again.
Second issue which is far more important is the inability to download a week at a time. I do missionary work in developing areas of the world where there is no Internet. If you look at other solutions such as our daily bread it allows you to download the entire month at a time. There should be an easy feature to provide it is absolutely necessary.

Thank you so much for your kind review and your feature requests. We take the Abide community very seriously and I will share your requests with our Abide team. We are aware of the "streak" resetting and are looking into fixing that. We are still a small, yet might app and want nothing more than to grow and provide the community with being able to access Abide everywhere! Please pray for us and we will pray for you as you do missionary work and Abide in Christ!
