Exceeds expectations


I was skeptical about the value of a Bible app, but I have been very pleased with this one. I have the full NABRE available offline, footnotes and all. I can highlight and underline text in various colors, and create my own cross-references in the notes feature. This was ideal for completing assigned Scripture readings while traveling on a bus -- no need to pack a heavy Bible! My only complaint is that saving notes can be a little clunky; it would be nice if notes automatically saved when I closed them. I would also like to be able to create cross references to a particular chapter, without having to choose a specific verse. (I often can't quickly create a good cross reference because I vaguely remember the chapter I want to refer to, but not the verse.) These are small things though. Thanks for a great, valuable app at a very affordable price!

App Crashes


Fix the version 3.5 ASAP! The app takes on average 17-20 seconds to open any given book of the Bible, then another 10-15 seconds to select a chapter, and then the same for verse! Unacceptable. And, when you tap the "Contact Us" bar, the app shuts off. Ugh.

With each version update, all of my highlights shift left or right from what was previously highlighted. Very frustrating that this occurs with EACH version update. I do enjoy this Catholic Bible, but with each version update, something else always goes wrong. 2 out of 5 stars.

Fast and easy on the eyes


The choice of layout and method of jumping to book, chapter and verse are much more intuitive and easier than other apps. The notes (depending on your version) are equally easy to get to and the font and size are the easiest on the eyes. By far my favorite Bible app. I don't use the others I've bought any more. This one is just much more pleasant IMO. Peace!
