App Reviews

  • Needs Improvement

    By languageandexpression
    Have the developers actually tried using the app and searching in various languages/translations and switching between them? It's very cumbersome and somewhat of a pain to do. There are so many steps involved, and the process is glitchy, especially with the search feature. The language/translation doesn't change in the search feature, and then sometimes if you click on a result, expecting it to take you to the verse, it doesn't do anything. Navigating is a pain, and the chapters always scroll back up to the top after you go to a passage and try to scroll down. It's difficult to get to the verse you want to navigate to without having to go through extra, unnecessary steps and repeating steps because of glitches. Please test the app and stomp the bugs! Thanks! Still needs a "Favorites" option for Bible versions!!! I am constantly switching between Hebrew, Greek, and English versions in my studies. It would be so much more convenient to use the app if I could save these Bibles to my "Favorites." It is really a pain having to go through the process of selecting the same Bibles over and over—and over—again. This should have been fixed several iterations ago...
  • New version does not allow scrolling ahead or back on daily read

    By T/dee
    I still think this is the best app out there, it includes many features and versions like NIV, which others don't include. I like the ability to save my notes and verses that are meaningful, and the fact that I can choose many features without signing up for emails. However, I have a few suggestions: The book and verse scroll is not quick enough if your using it to keep up with a speaker. I'm still scrolling when others have quickly found the verse in a hard copy. A quick choice option for the verse and book choice would be better. Also they changed the Daily Bible reading so you can't scroll back a chapter or forward to the next chapter to keep reading without going out or in from the Daily Reading section. It's cumbersome, and stops the flow of study. It should be easier to delve deeper in a your Bible Study. I don't know why they would have changed that feature, as it was not an improvement.
  • Crashing ap

    By kyhillbilly62
    Not liking new look. When listening to audio Bible I can no longer read and see where I am. Or what version I am listening to or who is reading. It is too small for me to see and not easily changeable if I want to go back and listen to a verse again. The past version was very easy large enough and easy to change when I needed to change it. I listen to the Bible all night and this way when I wake up I have to get up turn on the light find my glasses and figure out how to change what book I'm listening to. Even the wheel is too small for me to see.I will be finding a Nother Bible app to listen to. This ap does nothing any more but crash since last update. Audio runs a couple minutes and quits and it's not like I have a cheap phone that can't handle it. I had erased all other audio versions since I found this but will have to re load them.
  • Life CHANGING💗💗

    By Hfcbgc hdvjgfbk
    I love this app so much and it has allowed me to read the Bible more often and seek the Lord. I use my headphones and use the "dramatized" version on the audio bible and follow along on the regular Bible reading and I understand it so much more. I started to use the reading plan and using the audio to complete it and it's great because you can get reminders everyday reminding you to read. I plan on writing about what I know from the scriptures in my prayer journal. The only thing is that the reading plans don't have an option where you read Genesis to Revelation which I would prefer but the app is still amazing and I love it and I encourage you to get it to get you closer to Christ with scripture :) ps I highly recommend the NIV version of the Bible because other ones like the KJV are hard to understand in my opinion and the NIV is really easy to read and understand for a 12 year old like me.
  • Thank God for this app

    By If Justif
    I love this app I am visually impaired and it is very difficult for me to read the Bible giving that I can no longer read text I struggle with following Sunday service because I can't read the Bible when everybody else is reading it but with this app it is amazing I've been reading the Bible I actually started from Genesis and I'm able to sync it to my TV to listen to it loud enough I love this app thank God I hope I hope they make it better so one can get the verses because right now you're only able to get the book and the chapter I want to be able to see the verses or hear the verses so when their church wants us to go to for example Genesis chapter 1 verse 10 I won't have to start from Genesis chapter 1 verse one but I'll just go straight to Genesis chapter 1 verse 10 so fingers crossed and I'm hoping for eight to get even better so I can get the versus I for what it's worth this is the best audio Bible I have come across since I've been downloading series of ups for audio Bible
  • My Bible App I Use Every Day

    First the one gripe that I have. I do not like spinning the wheel to get to books chapters and verses. I much prefer pushing them. But I love the free Charles Spurgeon Devotional that comes free. Also have free access to the KJ21 bible. And overall it’s a pleasure to use. I wish that I could copy just parts of the verses instead of the whole verse sometimes but that’s not a big deal. I would definitely recommend if just for the devotional and amount of free bible versions. Please get rid of the wheels though. Thanks and God bless you for providing this much free of charge. I downloaded another app recently and it only had the KJV and it was very costly to add other versions. I usually use the Blue Letter Bible app with this one so that I don’t have to get out of the devotional to look up scripture and go back and navigate to the devotional again. Plus it has push to verse instead of the wheel.
  • Notes needs help

    By samerammer
    Bible Gateway is one of my study staples...I’ve used it for years. However...I’ve gotten into deeper study of the Word, and have started using the Notes feature of the app. May I suggest a couple improvements that would improve its value tremendously. First of all, the Notes icon that appears at the beginning of a verse when a Note is made should pop-up a window with that particular Note. As it is, it takes you away from your place in the Scripture to a listing of the Notes made that you must scroll through to find the particular Note you want. Then you must navigate back to the Scripture you were reading. Awkward and time consuming. Second, there is a way to print each Note separately; however, there should be a way to print a list and/or range of Notes so they can be kept hard copy with other study materials. Third, currently there is only one color available for highlighting. It would be very helpful to have a number of colors so as to designate different Bible studies. Fourth, have a Notes icon at the beginning of the verse for each Note made regarding that particular verse. In this way you would be able to see all the Notes made for a verse at different times. Thank you. Hope you will see the benefit of each of these suggestions and work them into the next update.
  • Please make one change!

    By Magistra414
    One of the only drawbacks to this app is that when selecting a chapter from a book of the Bible, the "scroll" option is time-consuming and not as efficient as other apps that just have a menu with the numbers in a square. It really becomes an issue with the Bible, because it's such a large volume with so many chapters and so many versus within many of the chapters (Try looking up Psalm 119:105...) It makes me want to go to my other apps to look up a verse. Otherwise I love all the depth of versions available, listening options, books available, etc Everything else is great, but the one thing I want use this app for often is to look for a particular verse, so I experience the scrolling issue almost daily. Seems to me that this would be an easy change and make a Scripture search much less time consuming. Thanks for listening!
  • Step Backward after Update

    By Write4u2mydear
    The new update has changed my review. Keep in mind, I LOVE this app. But the update changed a few things. I like the visual changes. They’re visually appealing. But I hate how the audio works now. I like to read while I listen, helps me concentrate. But now, whenever I scroll down to read along, the top banner menu where the audio button is located disappears. And the only way to get it back as my scrolling up, and you have to scroll a good amount of distance. This makes me lose my spot and I often have to pause it to reread the section that I missed. I would love if they put a pause/play button as a simple circle at the bottom of the screen, that way you can always access it without having to go through a menu first. If they add this feature, I will gladly raise my writing back to a five star, but as for now this “upgrade” seems to have taken a step back - at least, in that regard.
  • The new version has issues

    By Debk63
    I would have given the previous version 5 stars, but this latest version is not as easy to navigate. I HATE the new pop-up navigation banner in the reading pane. It used to be a stable header, but now it's just a pop-up, which doesn't work as well as the old fixed banner. When you're in the reading pane, if you scroll up or down too far the pop up navigation banner disappears and won't come back so you can't navigate anywhere else in the app or pull up the audio. Also, the old navigation banner automatically adjusted to where you were if you scrolled to a new chapter. But you have to manually change the location in the new banner if you want the reading pane to open up on the new chapter the next time you use the app. I often wind up having to completely close the app and reopen it to manually select my next chapter or to get to other areas of the app.
