Holy Bible is the easiest, best looking, and most customizable Bible app you'll ever use.
Dozens of downloadable Bibles, online ESV, powerful searching, parallel viewing, study tools, NET notes, Facebook/Twitter sharing, autoscrolling, bookmarking, highlighting, underlining, notes, daily reading plans, iCloud syncing and backups, and so much more!
Note: No copyrighted Bibles will be added that require large up-front cost (ie. NIV, NASB, NKJV, etc). I am a full-time missionary coding in my free time with very little money. I have tried time and time again, but the publishers simply do not want anything to do with my app.
What's New in Version 8.8.1
• Bugfix: Passage selector crashing in Matthew in OT/NT columns
Love the app but not the last update
Love this app and use it a lot but several things on the latest update I do not like. When choosing a book to go to it used to put the current book at the top but now it only changed the color in the list to red, I hate this! My big fingers have a hard enough time hitting the right book to begin with, this just makes it tougher to change chapters in the same book, please put it back at the top. My other big complaint is the bottom icons, there is no reason for them to take up the whole bottom row, it was much better when they were just halfway across the bottom on the right side with more reading room. I understand the idea behind making updates and keeping the app current but you need to think, is this really better? As I said I love the app but this current update is not an improvement, I would call it a downgrade.
I've had some issues
Bible app is good for reading and getting through daily devotions, but for study purposes it isa little difficult. It is harder to change chapters in the same book without touching the red lettering of the book when you go back to selections and then there is the issue with the notes section. I had upgraded to a ipad mini 2 with retina and I uploaded everything to icloud thinking I would get all my notes back, but I didn't I lost everything. A heartbreaker for sure. I do love the copy and paste and the ease of the notes, but getting back to my notes is not easy. Then I had to take the app completely off my ipad and re-download it to get the Bible selection to stop turn the app off. I will continue to use it as I have not found one I like better.
It is hard to read the bible seriously without attention to its language. Few of us read Greek or Hebrew with ease, but we may still want access to these versions, preferably with the guidance of one or more competent vernacular versions. This app does all in its power to facilitate this effort. I love being able to display two or even three versions in parallel. One can always wish for more, I suppose. My wish would be for the inclusion of the apocryphal books. But such a wish seems ungrateful for the great richness of content and the user-friendly formatting already here, and the generosity, care, and insight that informs both the original app and its occasional always well conceived revisions.
