Customer Reviews

Please make one change!

One of the only drawbacks to this app is that when selecting a chapter from a book of the Bible, the "scroll" option is time-consuming and not as efficient as other apps that just have a menu with the numbers in a square. It really becomes an issue with the Bible, because it's such a large volume with so many chapters and so many versus within many of the chapters (Try looking up Psalm 119:105...) It makes me want to go to my other apps to look up a verse. Otherwise I love all the depth of versions available, listening options, books available, etc Everything else is great, but the one thing I want use this app for often is to look for a particular verse, so I experience the scrolling issue almost daily. Seems to me that this would be an easy change and make a Scripture search much less time consuming. Thanks for listening!

Refreshingly good

When the content is the Bible, you expect a certainly level of integrity and quality. This is God's Word, after all. I am a little embarrassed to admit how much I've spent on various Bible apps only to have them either fail or overcharge for the content. Bible Gateway has been solid and free from the moment I discovered it and yet they've continued to improve it. Thank you for the gift of God's word on our devices and for providing it with quality and integrity that shows that you've actually paid attention to what it says yourselves.

Latest Update on Audio

This is a great app. I use it every day. So thank you for making it available. However, Since the last update, the audio no longer functions as 'continuous play'. It crashes after playing a few chapters (sometimes 1, sometimes 10-15). This morning, it crashed after a few verses. Please advise if there is anything I can do to prevent this crash. If not, please consider fixing the bug via an update. It would be really helpful if you would add an option which allows the user to determine a range of play. Thanks much.
