Great option for the person with limited budget—solid app

Most of the Bible software apps available for Mac are quite expensive. e-Sword X makes it possible to have a workable solution without a high cost. There are a number of good, if older, downloads in the area of commentaries and references. No, the features aren’t going to compare with the top-shelf premium programs, but they are adequate for the daily user, and they keep getting better with each update. I’ve been able to use a couple of commentaries that are not directly downloadable, as well.

Kudos to the developer for providing a solution to those of us who don’t have a fortune to spend. I use this application every day and it never performs flawlessly.


e-Sword X works very well. I used Mantis for years, however, that application was not updated to the new Apple operating system, so I bought e-Sword X. e-Sword X has excellent capabilities and offers a help function that provides an important overview of how to use e-Sword X. The ipad and laptop version are mostly the same in operation, however, the differences between platform operations are challenging when switching between hardware. I hope e-Sword X continues unchang4ed, and yet updated as necessary to meet any OS X updates.

Hello Mr Rick Meyers, I have used the microsoft version for years until i purchased a mac. I loved the program then.
But when I got a mac, then had to purchase parallels. Cost a lot of money each year for that program in
order to use e-sword. Now with e-sword for mac, no longer used. E-sword for mac is great and would recommend to
the world to use. I sure appreciate the work you’ve done to this program. Thank you. A 10 star if i could recommend it.
