It’s the living bible, but the audio side is where you get Tricked. Unless you pay 1.99 a year then the audio is the voice-over apple voice. For this you could download any free bible app or webpage and triple click the home button. Wish I could get my money back.

Looking Through The Veil

Many of the younger generation shrug without second thought on using such an app, especially when it comes to the Word of God and the older generation (I am included) look upon this as not necessarily being the Word of God because it is not written on paper. I am here to tell them it is better than paper and the many different versions that is obtainable through this app is better because you can carry so many resources in one small device. It is a valuable tool and one I highly recommend. 10 stars.
