Sabbath School 4 is the introduction of a new fresh user experience. This is also sets the foundation in which we will build more features to enrich your Bible study experience.
This is the official app of the Sabbath School Bible Study Guides.
Sabbath School 4 is a Bible study app for the student, teacher, and small group leader. The studies are built on Scripture and encourage the reader to discover a better understanding of the Bible. This app is produced by the Sabbath School and Personal Ministries Department of the General Conference. If you have questions or issues with this app, please contact the Sabbath School and Personal Ministries Department in the support link or at http://www.sabbathschoolpersonalministries.org/iphone. Feedback is what enables us to make this app relevant to you. (By the way, rating us for features we haven’t thought about yet doesn’t quite help the process.)
Beginner is a two year, monthly, curriculum for ages 0 to 2. Beginner lessons are intended for children under age two. Let's face it--these little ones don't sit still long enough! (Parents of a child who is more advanced may choose to use the Kindergarten study guide if the child is ready for more information.)
Kindergarten is a two year, weekly, curriculum for ages 3-5. There is one lesson per week with illustrative activities for each day.
Primary is a four year, weekly, curriculum for ages 6-10. There is one lesson per week with illustrative activities for each day.
Junior PowerPoints is a four year, daily, curriculum for ages 10-13.
Real Time Faith is a two year, daily, curriculum for ages 13-14.
Cornerstone Connections is a four year, daily, curriculum for teens.
Collegiate Quarterly (CQ) is a daily study based on a quarterly theme. A different young adult writes each day. The writers are from an international pool and bring a varied perspective on the week’s study.
The Adult Bible Study Guide (ABSG) and CQ are quarterly studies that explore the Bible and Biblical teaching. Where one author per quarter writes the Adult Bible Study Guide, about 91 international authors write CQ, one each per day, per quarter. Both follow the same curriculum for the given quarter.
What's New in Version 1.6
- Fixed some bugs.
Still buggy but slightly better
With the significant issues that the previous version has had I was anxious to see an update which finally arrived today. I quickly downloaded it and tried to open the app but on my iPhone says it's syncing the app and then it never ends.
On my iPad I loaded the app and it two went through a sync cycle but it finally ended after a few minutes. I then tried to touch the menu to go to the Adult quarterly but the menu kept flashing in the off. After repeated attempts it eventually came up.
The Bible references display width issue (too narrow in portrait orientation) has been thankfully resolved. Thank you! I'd still like to see all verses shaded when the reference is a multi-versus reference instead of only the first verse.
Would also like to see the usual iOS device clock time displayed at the top of each page so I can keep track of time. Having to exit the app to see what time it is inconvenient.
One Step Closer to a Working App
Like others have stated, for a couple of years this app would install, but when you tried to sync, it would never succeed, so you had the app on your phone but no lesson. I finally removed it as it was useless. I tried again last month and to my surprise, it will now sync and go to a page that allows you to select a week and upload the lesson. The problem is, when you want to move to the next lesson a week later, there is no way to go back to the menu that gives you the option to select your week. The only way I've found to accomplish this is to uninstall the app, then reinstall it. Has anyone at the development team tried to actually use the app? You're going in the right direction. Nice work so far but you're not finished.
has bugs, but better than when 1st released
long ago when SS version 4 was first released, this app was VERY buggy and crashed a LOT. it still has bugs now but it isn't a 1 star app. But there are still weird quirks that make it not a 5 star app either.
It's great for it's intended purpose though, so I recommend it.
why is it called Sabbath School 4 though? why not "Sabbath School Version 4" or something? It's an odd name. The EGW app being called EGW 2 makes no sense either. I think a more clear name without the version # would be better.
