Wish Application worked with my Android phone.

JW Bible Reader has it all for real study. Easy to use with the annotation features I wanted to find. Get this App, you will feel similar!!

Incredible app!

Next to the JW library, this is, hands down, the best app I have found in the MS store. Everything I had to do manually in several other reader apps, this one does automatically! Makes the downloading of all the publications a snap, and even organizes them into groups. Plus, being able to add notes, highlight, and line draw are features that many of the reader apps in this store don't even have. Having all the weekly meeting info right at your fingertips is a tremendous help. The developer really gets the "organized" aspect of our study needs. Great job.

The more I use it , the more valuable it becomes.

I find this app to be a great aid to Bible study. I find myself looking up more of the scriptural references during my study periods because they are so easy to get to. The Bible opens up right to the scripture you select. You can see a verse in a pop-up or in context right on the Bible's page. The Developer is also very responsive to issues and is constantly making improvements. I now use it even to copy active links into my talk outlines. When use my tablet to give a talk, the active links open the verses in split screen mode. It's a beautiful thing. Thanks, Ken

This a very useful app for studying.

Is it possible to control size of verses and notes that are inserted onto the page? Would like to make smaller than the text size being used for the article.

I love it, but needs some corrections

I really like this app, however, I've noticed that, when using book mode and looking for the verses on the verse list, a lot of them are not listed, or the chapter and verse might be correct on the list but not the book and vice versa. I personally prefer using the book mode when studying, and would greatly appreciate it if this problem was corrected. I would give it a 5 otherwise, great app!

Very useful tool

Excellent tool for the meetings and so much more. The Bible Reader helps to simplify the study lessons. When setting up the Bible Reader, just put in your meeting days and all the meeting information will be at your fingertips, including the Bible reading and the songs to be used at the meeting. We use the Bible Reader daily. Thank you

E PUB Reader For Jehovah's Witnesses

This is a great app. You can see or view the Bible as it appears like the Real Book! I recently asked a question about how to bookmark your place in the Yearbook. In a week I received my response. It is really very easy. He has lots of helpful videos. It works great for Meetings and personal study. It is the best windows 8.1 app for EPUB Reader because it has your weekly meeting material all together at the beginning as well as the Day Text and it has all the Editing tools you could ever want and the links work very well. You have the option to open a scripture in the Bible in a new window OR a pop up window. I love this App! It makes me glad that I bought this Windows Tablet instead of a IPAD like my Wife. Much Better!
