Great app! Couple suggestions for it: 1) Add a note function where you can write notes/comments/etc., and 2) if there is any way to make the highlighting synchronize between devices that would be fantastic. I usually study for meetings on my desktop or laptop, but use a small tablet at the hall. For now I'm just studying on the tablet, but would be nice to be able to use other devices as well.More
Excellent in Android; Glitches in Windows 10
The update allowing one to highlight text is an excellent feature. In my Android cellphone it works smoothly and easily. However, in two different tablets with Windows 10 (Samsung and Toshiba) the highlighter does not follow the touch area of the screen, usually showing up three or four lines about the portion that one chooses to highlight. From my experience, it appears to be an issue with the Windows 10 verson of the application.More
Terrific and easy to use on my Samsung Galaxy Note3
Terrific and easy to use on Samsung Galaxy Note 3, but I have a few weird glitches on my HP 810 Revolve. When I try to select a scripture or to highlight something on the publications, it won't select the scripture or area to highlight, instead it select words about 1.5 - 2inch above the desire targeted area. But I do love the app. I love how easy it is to use and having all the wonderful publications at my fingertips.More
Thanks to Jehovah our God for making such a useful tool for all! My Mom who is approaching 88 is now a little slow at finding her scriptures', and this program, especially on a tablet, helps her to stay up with finding her scriptures at the meetings. Jehovah always gives us what we need to keep fed well!:-)More
Agora ótimo com a opção de marcar. Pena que o aplicativo é muito lento e as vezes não abre!! Sugestão: Poderia aparecer a letra enquanto tocasse os cânticos. Ter o audio disponível dentro das publicações seria muito bom e útil, assim como é no site.More
I am very, very, very happy with the new update. Now we can highlight within the JW Library app, with multiple colour selections. This is wonderful. My search fo an epub reader for my watchtower and other theocratic publications that does exactly what i want is now over! Thank you!!More
Thank you so much for this provision! Makes studying not only easy but enjoyable. Would be nice if we could directly enter a page number to access a particular page or have a slider like the one in eBooks. Would be nice if congregation bible study publication opened in main screen, including pictures and questions like the watchtowerMore
Best app in the Windows Store!!
Best app in the store. What a useful tool for Bible reading anytime, anywhere. The search feature makes it so easy to find specific verses. And having six versions at your fingertips is great for study. Runs smooth as silk in WP8.1. Thanks so much!!! Update 11/18/2015 The latest version is a big improvement. The app had gotten slower (with all the new features added) but this release really speeds up loading and running. Being able to highlight text and bookmark specific words is a great addition! Great work!More
Great App! Highlighting Now Available!
App works great on Windows Surface. Many have commented that you can't add other bible translations. That is not accurate. If you're in full screen mode and in the Bible section simply swipe down from the top of screen and a menu bar will pop up across the bottom. Select the languages button and pick the translations you wish to download. If you're running in a Windowed mode tap on the 3 little lines on the upper left corner (Menu Button) and select the top command ( app menu or something like that, sorry can't remember exact wording) Then that same menu will pop up across the bottom where you can select languages and make other changes to the app. This is the same way you can switch between Show Text and Show Pictures which will become very much needed in the new Meeting Workbook in January. It would be nice to have those buttons visible on the screen at all times as in the Android and iOS versions of the app. That would save a lot of confusion with people not finding them.More
Really love the updated version coming up with the Live Tile Daily Text and the way we can easily highlight directly in the JW Library App. Thank you brothers for this!!More
