What's New in Version 5.2.3
- Newly Published resources now work offline
Verbum is nothing short of incredible! I do have one thing to ask of the development team though. Please give me some other way to disable "indexing", other than pausing it for 4 hours. It's a real hassle to deal with when you're in the middle of a critical project. Fix that and you get 5 stars! Maybe consider turning it off until next boot, or even add a menu for the user to trigger indexing at convenient time.
Otherwise, I simply couldn't live without it!
Good reading plans
This is the best Catholic app for Bible study, and its inclusion of many other free public domain books is nice. Bible version is RSVCE, and this app is the best way to read that version on the iPhone. Also, there are an exhaustive list of reading plans. The app is slow sometimes but overall runs very smoothly.
This app has everything. It's like viewing at your fingertips an ocean of resources that are free. I have never seen such a powerful all inclusive app ever relating to the power of Holy Scripture. Don't hesitate on this one, you won't regret it!
