Almost Perfect

I use this everyday. It is a great, easy to read, search, and travel through bible application. My only complaint, like everyone else, and I hope they are reading this, is that every time you close lose your place. Hitting the "Go back to where you were reading button" doesn't work. So I keep the App open after I finish reading for the night, look at it the next night before I tough it, so I know where I left off, and then touch it. It closes and we start over again, but since it stayed open I knew where I was. A work around, but we shouldn't have to do that...the button should work!!!!! Other than that...this is a really good bible APP.

Great App

I love this app. It's always with me when I need it and it's easy to use. I do wish it had a more definitive way of finding scripture related to specific issues. For that I have to wait until I'm home and close to my reference bible. I guess I could look for a separate app for that!?


I like this bible a lot. I especially like the bright colored back ground & how easy it is to find the books of the bible. My only issue is that I wish it had a concordance or can break down passages for a better understanding.
