Pretty good app

I like the app. I don't have any of the performance issues others are complaining about, but I would like to see a few more options added. I would prefer a few more font options, especially something that looks like what the ESV app uses. And I would very much like an option for a reader's view in the app that turns off verse numbers. I really like the translation though.

Great translation, app needs work

Great translation, reminds me of the old 1984 NIV which I love. I read a lot of translations such as NASB, ESV, NIV, NLT, NKJV, and I would rate CSB translation in my top 3.

But the app needs some help but still very usable. Hopefully it will take off in time. I think one thing overlooked in these reviews is its FREE. You can't expect the world for free. Even to get this translation free is a huge gift.

Sideways swiping needs tuning down

I like the translation. However the app needs tuning. Often when i'm scrolling through a chapter the app reads a slight lateral movement and thinks i want the next chapter when i'm just trying to get to the end of the chapter. Fix that and it's pretty solid. Also might want to add the sideways swiping feature to the tutorial.
