Customer Reviews

Beautifully done

Version 1.8:
Thankyou developers for this wonderful Bible App. I have three different Bibles downloaded in my iPhone. They are all wonderful, but this Bible App is my favorite. It is the easiest to use and offers many settings to make reading easy and fun. There are topics you can look up, and a dictionary and so much more included that sets this Bible App apart from the others. The layout is elegant but user friendly. It is "simply" the best. Highly recommend. 😇

Love this app!!

I absolutely love this app. Everything is easy to read and understand. I have recommended it to friends and family as well. I read from it daily and love that it is in my phone and iPad so I can take it with me everywhere I go.

One question. Is there a way to save your spot in the three week introductory reading plan?

Best app I own, my favorite

God is good.......?..all The Time.........I am so glad that this app was made, I read it every nite. Its very easy to read, and understand, I wish everyone I new had it , it's full of knowledge . That being said, I do wish you could book mark, at any point you want, but there is no way, other than that, I think this is a wonderful bible app for the entire family.
