Best Bible App but Pricey
If you want access to one Bible for a few dollars, pick a different app...but if you want access to multiple translations, commentaries, scholarly resources, and many other Christian books, and are willing to pay, this is it!!! Access to some of the resources is pricey (sometimes very much so), and you'd need very deep pockets to purchase everything, but if you are content enough with just using a few of the resources, then this is a great app! The cost of the resources adds up very quickly, so if you are trigger happy with purchases you might want to pick a different Bible app! It is an incredible resource, though, like a whole Christian library at your fingertips.
A Long Time User
I have used this app since I bought my first smart phone; a Palm. In these many years I have seen it morph and improve. It has expanded its enhancements. Regularly they run fixes on bugs. Both my wife and I used this daily. We use it more than any other app on our iPad or iPhone. It is my go-to app for lessons and sermons. The commentaries and language helps have sequestered my paper library to the loft.
Here is my one request. How about another 'one year' Bible program other than the NKJV and the NLT? Can we see a few more versions set up like the NKJV? It will soon be a new year. It's a great time to consider new reading options.
THE BEST Bible app
Best Bible app I've seen as of yet. I love how you can make custom highlight colors and categories. I also enjoy the footnote window that shows up when a reference is tapped. The interface is clean. The only problem is the store. Everything is so expensive! You can , however, get the ESV and KJV (I haven't looked hard for any other versions.) for free, as well as some devotionals. Could maybe use a read out-loud feature. Also, reading two versions side-by-side needs to be more accessible (also, fix the scrolling, please).
