Wonderful Program

I have used several bible study apps. This is by far the best, so much so that the other ones are only a vague memory. Before this app I would have various books open and marked and had to have a large table to work on, so that I could have all my resources at hand. Not any more. All the resources I need are just a click away, with the multiple window feature, they are actually in sight. Easy to use, and easy to take notes, underline, and remember. Great program. Thier sales of add-ons really help me add to my library with ease.
There are two drawbacks to this program, which has been vastly improved with the new version. First it would be very nice to be able to create and save various window setups so that you could have one for sermon note taking, one for different aspects of bible study. The second improvement needed is to keep track of the library so that when you browse the store it would sync with your library and tell you what books you already have. Several times I have bought a second copy of something. I tend to shop the sales and have quite an extensive library of titles

Solid app - Great support

Now that Mac version has been updated to the 6.0 platform, the app is significantly better. If I had to rate this app purely on support and responsiveness to my issues, I would give it a 5 star as they have been very responsive since coming up with 6.0 version and all its updates. All that said, I am giving it an overall 4 stars as the app still needs improvements in UI and performance. I have hundreds of tags and I tag verses with multiple tags but there is no way I can search by multiple tags i.e., if I want to find a verse that is tagged with both “Jesus” and “Prophecy” I cannot figure out a way to do this. Also, because of the large number of tags, the program is sluggish on my 2010 MacBook Air when starting a new note or navigating within the Resource Guide. Synching can also be finnicky at times but ultimtely it does keep things in sync. I can only imagine how complex a program like this is to write and maintain so hats off to the team.

A Bible Study Tool that does not get in the way of Bible Study!

Over the past 20+ years of using electronic devices of some kind to facilitate Bible study I have found a home with “Bible Study.” I have been using it for over 6 years now. It allows me to set up my study environment the way it works best for me. It is not the dog that wags the tail; this tool serves my purposes and takes a low posture as a user interface. The learning curve is easy and fast and basically similar on all platforms. It also has enough bells and whistles to make more complex study and research a pleasure (I used it explicitly for Biblical research in pursuing my Doctoral degree and it worked like a charm). The Library offers the necessary additions for more complex study. Had I to do it again, I would buy and use this product without hesitation. If you need a Bible Study application buy Bible Study.
