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!

Best beginners app!!!


As a “baby” Christian, this app has helped me learn the disciplines between prayer and meditation. I also previously had issues trying to sleep. The free content is superb and I will upgrade because I believe in the mission of the developers to bring good, quality, honest Christian values to the masses. I labeled this app as beginners because as some of the stories are told and bible verses read, I know they have been over-simplified. They are put together beautifully in the sleep programs, but I would enjoy a bit more depth as an adult. My grandson loves these stories. It is a great way to introduce children to the word in a simpler mindset such as this. This app has boundless opportunity for growth and development. The voices used in the sleep programs are perfect for me!! I am now asleep in 10-20 minutes versus up to six hours of mindless meditation without the Word of God in it. Now that I have included my Lord and Savior in my nighttime routine, I fall asleep faster, sleep deeper, have virtually no nightmares, and wake up feeling well. I am excited to see what the developers can do to make this the app for everyone of every age and every level of biblical knowledge can be!!! ***GREAT START ABIDE!!! I HAVE GREAT HOPES FOR YOU***
