What's New in Version 28.2
Adequate but could be better
I've been using this app for 2+ years. It's Ok...clean, pretty well layer out and appointed with features but it could be much better. Here are a few suggestions/issues...
Please add a bookmark/place holder option to the "Bible" so I know where I left off! I really dislike that this resets to Gen 1 every time. Also, I'm an avid note taker. However, the note pages are hard to navigate and write in once you get to the bottom of the page...keyboard overlays the bottom section of the page so I can't see what's going on the page. This means I spend too much time fussing with the app during sermons or classes instead of hearing what is said. (Maybe this an iOS issue?) It would also be great to have a marker/underliner/bolder (with different colors) options for Bible text. Finally, I'd like to be able to search my notes and favorite verses for key words.
I would have given this app 5 stars, however, I will further explain why I did not do so. I love that you have added the Living Bible A+. This is a very hard version to locate.
I would like for the app to remember where I left off reading when I open or restart the app. It is annoying that it takes me back to the beginning B-.
Oh yes. Please have the notes slide out from the right side of the page by adding a notes tab. It is quite aggravating to have to blank out the bible pages completely to jot down notes C-.
There is the ability to view more than one version at a time while reading C+. While this is a good feature, they are not synced. The versions should scroll together. This is the purpose, I would imagine, for having the ability to view more than one version on the same screen C-.
This is my bible go-to app. I love the way you can mark your spot with "favorite" and go back where you can easily find it. I like how you can change the don't size and from daylight to dark mode, so the brightness doesn't hurt your eyes. I like that I have the option between reading or listening to the bible, with the audio selection, for those occasions that I want to continue my reading and I need to do other things. I've tried several bible apps over the years, this one is easily maneuverable and has easily grown to be my favorite, causing me to delete some of the others.
