I have The Message Daily Bible at home but don't always get a chance to read it so I thought this would be great! I could listen while in the car or cleaning. Not so much. First, it doesn't save your place should you close the app. So you have to start over from the beginning. Second, it looks like it works with Bluetooth in the car, but no. Lastly, about 3 readings in it just stopped reading about 1/3 of the way through! I kept trying, but after listening to the same 5 minutes or so about 5 times I gave up and removed it from the phone. This app has great potential, but they need to fix those glitches. Also, would be great if there was a written version as well audio for like when you're stuck in a waiting room!
The Daily Message
Disappointed and frustrated. Cannot sync today's date with day 48 which is where I am in hard copy. In order to use the calendar one must begin on Jan 1. So short sighted I feel like I must be missing something, but it's just not there. Crazy.
The text states that there is an alternate reading plan for two years, but there is no such thing in this app. Also I would prefer a mix of old and new testament readings, same day or on every other day. So as not to get lost in Old testament.
