ESV Bible App is Best

Crossway's ESV Bible App is the best way to go in electronic study bibles. First, this is one of the most literal translations available. When other translations, such as the NIV11 are going the way of political correctness and paraphrasing, in my opinion, Crossway's ESV is as true to the Word as possible without going to the Hebrew and Greek scriptures.
Whereas, the ESV Study Bible Kindle Edition for the Kindle App has navigation issues since its update, Crossway's ESV Bible App works.

Really like it but wish...

This app is my go-to Bible. I love it's functionality and ease of use. A minor wish. I would like to have the ability to select and highlight just a portion of a verse. Sometimes I just want to highlight a word or phrase instead of the whole verse, but don't have that option - at least I haven't found it.

Solid but 1 annoying thing

This is a solid app and the improvements lately have been good. ESV is similar to NIV and i enjoy the search & cross-references.

However, night mode reading doesn't work correctly because the menus are still black text on white background and very bright. If night mode affected the entire interface, then it would be perfect.
