  • Great Version

    I have really enjoyed having this version of the Bible. It is the one read in our church. It is easy to use.

  • My Favorite Bible App

    By Old Reub
    This app is worth purchasing. It's easy to navigate and has very usable features. I have had almost no problems with bugs and glitches—specifically when other Bible apps on my computer have crashed. I've used this to prepare messages, to lead Bible Studies, for devotions, and for seminary classes. It can seem a bit pricey on the front end but is entirely worth it.
  • Excellent app!

  • Awesome!

    Great app - thank you! Would love to see a more complete version with notes, maps, pictures, articles, etc, like that of the ESV Study Bible.
  • Always the First One Used

    By Ga Music Lover
    There are several Bible apps on my iPad and iPhone, and this one is always the go-to one. Stable platform, solid functionality, and easy to use features. Especially like the multi-colored highlighting capability; use that function to separate reference verses every week preparing Sunday School lessons.

    Thank you for your app. I really like the day and night modes - preferring night mode 24/7 - and the ability to highlight words and phrases, in addition to verses is handy. A few highlight colors is better than one, but a rainbow or a spectrum would be really cool. Since the last update, the app's been a little glitchy - often skipping to the top of an 'open' book after highlighting, making a note, or texting a portion - speaking of which, the text message option only allows one sendee so my go-around is to copy and paste into a group text instead. Also, an individual book's chapter page sometimes shows multiple chapters where none exist (2, 3 John, Jude...). And there you have it. :-)
  • Great App!!

    I am a young pastor and have found this app a huge help in having my notes and scripture all in the same app. Love it!
