Excellent Devotion


This is such a delight to have on my iPad/iPhone when I don't have my leather bound copy in my midst. It's written in the language of the original text which is comforting to me at times since I love old English. My personal copy is updated contemporary English. A great way to share with others as well on social media!

I have also recently purchased the pack of classics as my Daily Light s in it as well. Thanks Tap Tap/Victor, for making this app and app pack!

Deep Things of God


When talking about the pain in life, much has been left unsaid - except here. It seems that the fruit of a life where pain was turned into glory is here, in the writings of Mrs Cowman and her gathering of the inspiring writings of others. The depth of relationship as evidenced in wise words of encouragement and tenacity have spoken to the deep needs of my own heart. I rank it right next to my favorites: My Utmost for His Highest & Jesus Calling.

Crashes and same content for everyday


I like this app, but it crashes if I try to tap any other button at the bottom of the read page, other than the play button. Additionally, it shows today’s content as the content for everyday of the week, instead of actually showing the past content.
