UPDATE to my review below: DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY or your time. I used to love this app, now I hate it. It's still not working, for example the entire book of Isaiah is BLANK. It's empty, nothing there. I also hate that they have taken it upon themselves to "dissect" the Bible by putting section titles or subject titles over top of the books, dividing them by some arbitrary rule into sections that we may or may not agree with. I find this very confusing. I would just like to read the Bible, not be subject to someone else's sectioning off of the books. There are many other excellent Bible apps, don't use this one. And their customer service is non-existent. Maybe they are more concerned with making money from their Facebook and other social connections that they have associated with this app. instead of making a good Bible app, which doesn't seem to be their first priority.
Below is my initial review of this app:
I used to love this app, but after the last "update", and I use the term loosely, I lost ALL of the content that I paid for, including the NKJV and the MacArthur Study Bible with his study notes, as well as all of the videos and pictures, etc. basically all I have is the free Bible with a lot of frustrations. Don't buy this app until they fix it. I've written to the developers twice in the last month and they haven't done anything to fix this app. Or to address my concerns.
I love how I can bookmark a page, go to th next scripture and then come back to it...I can highlight and make my own notes on the scriptures that interests me at the time. I love how it keeps my scriptures open for days, so I have to go searching for them the next time I open my bible. In the journal, it keeps all the scriptures I have read which makes it easier for me to find and memorize the scriptures that interests me.
My only concerns are that there are only two versions of the bible available on this particular app. For study purposes I wish there were more versions like the living translation and the new king James....also, in the NIV version available on this app. It appears to have been revised and some scriptures have been omitted. I wish I had a say in such revisions....I wish there was a section for help in navigating and trouble shooting available on the home page....some things to maybe consider???? Otherwise, I am thankful for making the word of God available on my iPad....
I have been using Glo for years after having it recommended by the faculty at my children's christian high school. It "had" been great until this year (hence the two star rating). I had lost the MacArthur study notes until the last few months. And now, the entire book of Isaiah is not populated (i.e. missing). I just received a note from Glo about my open ticket being closed as they had not heard anything from me? No fix or app update has happened now for many weeks.
I am appreciative of updates (when they are actually an enhancement). But, I find emails closing open issues discouraging enough to write a negative review.
I will update this once the app again works as it used too (for years).
