Ratings and Reviews

Great app!


Good app with lots of useful information!

Great for Forward in Christ Magazine


So far, I have used this app to view my subscription to the Forward in Christ Magazine and to read devotions. In a busy stress-filled day, it is nice to have a convenient means for remembering what really matters. All I have to do is pull out my phone and I have immediate access to devotions and articles that build my faith. In just 3 minutes, I reset my mind, my outlook, and my day is better. Thanks!

New version is terrible


I'm deleting this new version. You used to be able to listen to the daily devotions right in the app. Now it takes you to the website where you have to navigate between several screens before being able to listen. Such a waste of time. I sure hope they reconsider this change. I really enjoyed listening to the daily devotions right when I awoke. Now it's too much navigating and very frustrating.
