What's New in Version 7.2.1
● Bug fixes.
Pretty decent app
I really enjoy using this app. I am amazed and astounded that it reads the Bible to me because I listen to it every morning on my hour and a half commute to work. I am very thankful for that feature. I also like how my progress updates across devices. A few things that bother me about the application is that whenever I read ahead on the plan and come back to it the next day, the app only shows the plan for the day you should be on instead of where you left off. For someone that's trying to listen to their Bible while driving, is tends to pose a driving risk as you tend to scroll and search for the most current Bible plan day. Also occasionally during the audio playback The program sometimes stops reading for random reasons even though the data connection is uninterrupted. Lastly I miss the location of the play button being visible on the bottom portion of the screen. It made it easy to press one button in one step for the Bible to read instead of pressing the screen twice in various locations to achieve the same thing. Nonetheless this is still a great app and I'm going to use it no matter what. Hopefully some of the functionality I had with the older version merges with the updates from the newer version. Thank you whoever created this app and to the gentlemen that decided to read the biblical text to us.
I have been attempting to read the bible for over a year, with little progress.......I discovered this app in an online effort to strengthen my spiritual journey; a GOD send!!
Convenience, capability, guidance, thorough, diversified, motivational, this app has it all!! I really love the amount of control i have on making it my own! It offers customized bookmarking, font and lighting adjustment for comfortable reading. It has virtually every relevant version of the bible to read from, and will automatically save your place; and the ability to compare verses from multiple versions is simply amazing! Also u can search the bible for any word or mood or relative situation......Don't even get me started on the plans.......as i said; I've been wanting to read the bible for a while, with this app, i found a, pre-constructed, plan to read the bible in a year. All at the touch of my fingers, anytime and anywhere!! There are reading plans for just about anything you can think of!!
I know this is a long review, but I cannot praise this app enough; it's like a biblical PC in the palm of your hand!
I am sharing it with everyone i can! I am pretty new to my faith, but i even got thanks from a pastor and a priest for turning them on to it.......AWESOME
Easy, Fun, Motivating
I'm a busy mom and trained minister. With so much to do, so much I want to do, self care often goes by the wayside. This app has made it easy to keep up with my devotional and Bible reading time. I wish I'd known about it when working on my Seminary homework!
The ability to listen to the Bible with book and chapter being given aloud as they change has been invaluable. I can exercise or do other physical activity (aka chores or driving) and still spend time in God's Word.
The devotions available have also been helpful. There's a variety of topics and lengths. Most take a few minutes to go through. The marking of which day I'm on is very motivating. I love seeing the little bar get filled in! Moreover, the devotions themselves are encouraging; aiding me in whatever topic I'm focusing on currently (health, money, etc) or the current liturgical season (Advent, Christmastide, Lent, Eastertide, etc).
My kids have the children's version. It's helped me to disciple them because they like me exploring the app and will often get very excited about something new they've learned; fostering great family conversations about our faith.
