What's New in Version 9.1
Search notes and tags
Fixed several bugs including some that were causing the app to crash
NOTE: Future versions will no longer support iOS 8
1. It would seem beneficial for us all to be able to download onto the JW Library app audio recordings of the Bible reading itself. (Of course I have no idea how much memory that would require for the entire Bible). Streaming is very useful, but only when in range of a cell towers or wifi. This, like our video downloads, may very well help us when streaming is unavailable. I know, it already is, and always will be, but I'm sure we'd all like to make sure that our app continues doing everything far, far better than what the world is offering for Bible education!
2. Also I'm sure you've seen the iBooks app ability to highlight OR underline. This underlining ability seems intuitive/user friendly for many of us that may get distracted by all the beautiful colors, and which colors to choose for our studies. Of course I'm not complaining, but ADD is a real thing! Also if we are doing the color thing, I love the idea of highlighting in a pastel form of the purple that matches the app. Just ideal uniformity!
3. I sure it's on the way with the study edition update, maybe, but the more pictures that I can share with students and use in my personal studies the BETTER.👍🏼 Like those that can be found In the insight bound volumes,(hard copies) or "see the good land brochure". Also maybe we can update the insight books. And why do we not have see the good land on the app? Maybe that's something already underway! Ty for your Patience, Loving Disposition and Hard Work!!!
What a blessing
Just wanna start off by saying how much I truly appreciate this app and the tremendously detailed effort that goes into it with every update,... I just wish I could open it!! Satan keeps thwarting my efforts to use this wonderful blessing LOL I've read through the reviews and can't tell if I'm the only one dealing with this specific issue, but I haven't been able to open my app in a week. Every time I click on it, I'll see the JW Library logo on a white background and then a small spinning circle immediately after (as if it's loading). I wait and watch for up to ten minutes every time, but the app never loads/opens. I made sure my phone was fully updated and even deleted/re-downloaded the app with the hopes that I could access all my spiritual tools again, but alas, it still shows me that spinning white circle. I just pray that whatever the glitch is, the next update will allow me to access my app again. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the work that goes into this technology because I sure couldn't even begin to try and do what you hardworking brothers and sisters do!
Note Editing Bugs
Firstly, I want to express my immense gratitude for this app and all of the latest features! My family loves the new Notes feature! However, when we try to edit the notes, the typing cursor can be a bit skittish, it jumps around which hinders precise editing capability. And it's difficult to paste multiple items into a note. After you've pasted something once and you tap to paste something else, the paste menu option disappears just as quickly as it popped up.
For reference: We're all running the latest app update & iOS updates on iPad Airs, Pros, iPhone 6s, & 7s.
Overall, it's an excellent study aid, has an easy user interface, flawless design, and most importantly it's extremely accurate. A total job well done, my brothers! May Jehovah continue to bless you!
