Ratings and Reviews
Do NOT give your credit card info to them!
I used this one year to help our family reach a goal to read Book of Mormon in a specific amount of time. So it was an easy way to figure it out. However, there is no option to discontinue subscription on the app or website. There is no contact info, no option to send a message, etc. available on the app, so it makes it very hard to track them down. When I left a message on a phone number I found for them it sounded like a man's personal answering machine (yes, machine). Never could reach them after they renewed my subscription, then I forgot about it & they did it again this year. I called my AMEX to dispute the order. (Finally). See what happens...maybe they look at reviews & will try to fix this problem.
I can't see paying $8 a month for this app. Hard to believe a scripture reading app should cost anything. The LDS apps are free, why so much for this? I will go low tech for way cheaper. Unfortunate.
Stops playing when locked?
Overall I like the app, I even paid the lower subscription rates when I had the opportunity. I like the idea overall it represents. Whether I am reading my scriptures physically, on my phone, or just wanting to listen to them; I can do all this through this app. My biggest concern about this app is the fact that's when I am listening and my phone locks, the audio stops. This should be able to be modified through the API similar to how a GPS app prevents lockout.
Also wish on the other schedules such as general conference, that I would be able to listen to audio as well.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
