This April 2016 fix to your terrible upgrade last year is much better. One thing needing fixed that I see so far is the hiding header and footers. Please change to all other apps...they appear or disappear when touching the page. Yours auto appears when you go to the bottom of the page and it hides the content! The only way to get rid of the footer is to scroll back up, then you can't read the last line in the scripture verse. Does anyone one there truly use this app before its published? I came form the publishing and manufacturing world and editors would be fired for putting out these many errors in print. Why is it OK in electronic? As always, the content is excellent Sarah! Been reading this daily for 7 years. Thank you!
Previous comments on last upgrade: This was a terrible upgrade! You made the font so darn small it's hard to read and you do not give the readers an option to enlarge it without enlarging the whole window, then we have to push it back and forth to read it!? Why did you take away the auto open to current day? Now I have to go look up the date because the upgrade highlights the wrong day...it highlights tomorrow not today. That was stupid. And you took away the ability to share Gods Word by not being able to copy it as if you just copyright protected the bible. Terrible...what a terrible backward upgrade. I now have to use a different devotional.
Better... but a couple of requests please?
First, let me say thank you for this most recent update... it's better than the previous update that changed everything, but I would like to share a couple of comments/requests. As some other reviewers have said, the background on the pages still isn't nearly as aesthetically pleasing as it was on the "original" version. I've kept that version on my iPhone after I mistakenly upgraded the app on my iPad a couple of months ago without having read the user reviews, which would have warned me of the unwelcome changes. Also, the new font isn't nearly as attractive or readable as the old font. It's just plain, re-sizable font and even the smallest font is too big. Cosmetically, it doesn't fit on the iPad screen, and the margins are too wide as well. They need to be brought in from the edges. Finally, the tool bar at the bottom is almost impossible to remove, probably due to sizing issues. I would still like my old version back, but I appreciate the movement in the right direction since you've apparently decided to ignore my request to "downgrade" back to the version I loved. Still keeping the old version on my iPhone...
I've sat quietly on the sideline
Software developers have to change things or they would not have a job. Does that justify what they did? No, but that is their motive.
I use to use the copy feature to send the daily devotional to a friend with whatever comments that I was moved to write and he would do the same. We would not read each other's until ours was written. It was not only amazing, but fun. We could even look back to the same date a year earlier and see how our interpretation had changed. All of that including the historical value was destroyed.
MOST IMPORTANT OF ALL is that we both had paid for app versions. As well as purchasing literally 100's of copies of the written version to hand out to people whose paths we crossed, we would eventually encourage them to purchase the electronic version.
We still use the printed version as a ministry. However, I can not encourage the purchase of the current electronic version.
The 300 character limitation is worse than having the feature turned off.
If the publishers motivation is purely monetary, I would gladly pay $20 for the old version again. Yes, that would be charging twice for something I had already paid for, but this current version is worthless. What we received with the old version is priceless.
Remember, the publishers will stand to answer for their actions to the highest authority.
