Useful with a Simple Interface
One of the single most valuable things this app accomplishes is putting Calvin's commentaries in a inexpensive and useful format. Other biblical study outlets charge over $1000 for this content.
After using the app for a few weeks now, I am forced to drop my rating to 3 stars. I've been finding the poor navigation controls a real hindrance to my studies. I humbly suggest the following:
2- Make the Bible text at the top of each chapter link the the commentary selection below
4- As another commentator mentioned before, an overall, top level index to span the entire 22,000 pages
Other than that, the app is generally well done with useful and valuable information. Additionally, this app succeeds at doing one thing well, instead of trying to be like a Swiss Army knife with every possible knob and button.
It's hard to get better
It's hard to get better than John Calvin. The makers of this app did a great job putting this together, allowing people to access these great works for so cheap. I find myself using this app all the time - during personal study, sermon preparation, Bible studies... I love it, and I'm so thankful for it. It's highly recommended.
Great app! Simple interface! Dependable! The only thing I would add is highlights and sharing capabilities. I love having Calvin's thoughts and commentary a tap away. This app has been useful to me in preparing bible studies and also in personal times of study! Thanks to the developers for their sacrifice and contribution to the kingdom! Can't wait for Matthew Henry!
