  • Good app but a few flaws

    By mb182
    I love this app most of the time and prefer it over some other ones. I love being able to see my highlights through my one user account whether on laptop browser or the app, but... 1) The app always closes on me and won’t hold my place when running in the background. I’ll be in church and I’ll leave the app go take notes. When I come back moments later when the pastor moves forward in the passage, the app has since shut down on its own and boots back up, making me have to search for my spot again. 2) I wish there were bookmark options where you could put a bookmark and simply access one of the locations you were last reading from the dashboard or a bookmarks menu option without having to manually enter the book and chapter each time. 3) I wish you could custom highlight. The app makes you select the whole verse. You should be able to select whatever part of the verse you want for highlight App is on the right track, but some basic UX issues could be addressed to make it even better. Thank you for the app!
  • Audio Bible is incredible

    By T-Summers
    This app has an audio bible in a few different translations with 3 voices to choose from (George W. Sarris is my favorite.) Much better then other audio bible Apps due to the fact that this is only a small portion of the entire app. Bible study and general reading is done exceptionally well. Very thankful for this FREE App!

  • Finally Reading my Bible!

    By lakehouse55
    I’m 52 years old and I have always struggled with reading my Bible everyday. I’ve only ever had a KJV. One day I googled a verse on my phone for a note I was writing and I found Gateway. I downloaded the app and started using the reading plan and now I have no problem reading everyday and often several times a day. It was hard to carry my Bible with me, so I never did. Now, I can just open my phone anywhere. My hairdresser asked me one day what I was always reading while my hair dye was processing and it opened up a conversation to be able to witness. All the ladies in our church prayer group use it now and we all use the NIV chronological reading plan and our conversations are now always on the Bible as we discuss our daily reading. I am also able to use a commentary for the first time in my life and it has opened up depths of God’s Word for me. Thank you Gateway! Carolyn M.
  • Awesome!

    By Curlycom
    I cross reference between translations all the time. I only wish we could change the highlight color at will For Different categories, such as yellow for scriptures pertaining to faith and blue for baptism etc.
  • Reason .

    By elskvm
    I can get everything but the home page with the daily verse for the last week. That is where I start for devotions. Would love to see it again. Thank you. God bless you.
  • This is a GREAT app But

    By BeautifulTrandy
    I love this app A LOT actually but something went wrong with it recently and now I can’t use it. So I had to uninstall it 😔 I loved the fact that I could just put in the search bar just one word in a verse and it pulls up all the verses with that one word in it ANd it tells me how many verses has that word in it also. It give the whole Bible in over 25 different versions I can switch when I wanted I can have it in a diff language it also gives verse of the day and saved all my favorite verses in one area I got to highlight my favorite verses AND share them without it being sent all boggled where ppl had to download the app just to see it. SO I did really love the app BUT now it started to mess up now when I went to certain passages it would bring it up in the search but wouldn’t actually bring it up in the Bible part I couldn’t go to a certain book in the Bible anymore either. So I feel like I just lost all my data I was saving in all that I was studying in the app now! Ugh that’s SO frustrating too. But please fix maybe I’ll try it again later.
  • Constant crashing

    By Atlanta's Angel
    I use to love this app but the last 2 years I've found that it won't stay open to use - it crashes so much it's counterproductive when using... what happened? Please don't add any more features until the crashing issues are addressed. I now have to remove this to make room for another bible app. I hope these reviews will provoke someone to do something about it!
  • Good app

    By Nick Mungai
    Love the narrator and the accessibility of this app it works good with apple voiceover.
  • Not user friendly

    By U make a pc look good
    Will not update password. Scrolling through books is cumbersome; it needs a grid.
