Installed inintially on my iMac, then MacBook Air, now on the MacBookPro. :)

Works perfectly!
You can customize the verse translation, the color of the scripture text and film. Black fill box and white text or the white fill box and black text. You can also set the transparency of the fill and the width of the fill box. You can also select the update frequency : every 12 or 24 hours.

Works perfect!

Where I place the Scripture it on the screen, its in the same position everytime I get on the computer, I mention this becuase someone complained about this when I was reading reviews a year or so ago.

Helpful hints, Tid Bits I learned while using:

1. Just be sure if you choose a big font and make the width of the box too large that you do not position the Scripture to close to the top or bottom of the screen.
If you have a new verse that day or the next day with alot of words it migtht seem to fall off the screen. So don’t put it too close to the top or bottom the scriptures vary in the length by day.
Its easy you can go in the preferences in the (right clicking the icon in the doc) or in the menu dock.

2. Also be sure to uncheck “keep on top of other windows” in the preferences so that you desktop folders remain above the Scripture or you won’t able to select them.

Pretty Good

This is a good app for all who hunger and thirst for brief Scripture readings on their Mac computers. It’s a good way to get a random, yet meaningful Scripture reading, even at the start of your computer.

Sometimes I notice typos in the verses, like missing parts of a verse, and partial words at times (a hypothetical example would be: "I [ca]n do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”) The parts in brackets would be the parts that would (hypothetically) be missing from a verse in some instances.

An option to refresh verses more than every 12, or 24 hours, or never would be nice also (which I believe someone else also suggested in a review also). (Perhaps refresh once every 30 minutes, 1 hour, 2 hours, or even custom?)

More variety in verses would be a nice addition too, if possible; and perhaps the option to delete other versions that we may not use. Maybe another option would be have three different overlays on the screen, separate from eachother, almost like stripes on the screen; having the option to have either 3 different translations (of a single verse), or 3 different verses at a time (of a single translation perhaps). These options may be more complex to add, and I can understand that. Just suggestions. :)

Overall, a good app.

reinstallation fixed my problem

I just downloaded the latest update and it worked the first time after the update, then I restarted my computer and now when I start the app, it appears to start because I can see the icon in the finder bar at the top of the screen, but no verse appears. I have tried adjusting where the verse appears (bottom or top of screen) to no avail.

Update -
I uninstalled this app and re-installed and now things seem to be working fine. I guess I just had a bad installation. Re-installing fixed everything. One thing I wish I could see is to be able to choose the AMP bible as my choice for scripture. The KJV is okay but I dont like all the thee and thou and all that. No one these days talks like that unless their playing around or under the influence of drugs or alcohol….lol
