Great Reference App

I like this app. I like how easy it is to download and get access to the latest literature as well. However, I feel that the app would be even better with a section for taking notes on thoughts as you study and also with a chat or blog connection where you could share your thoughts and get feedback from other congregation members.

SD Download; Additional Bibles; Windows 8 / 8.1

Download to SD Cards by swiping in from the right edge of the screen, tap the Settings 'gear', tap Download and pick the download location. To install additional Bibles, tap "BIBLE >" on the Home screen, then edge swipe to reveal the menu (or right-click) and tap the Languages button (looks like a speech bubble containing some letters). Now download the Bibles you would like to include in English or other languages! For those who have Windows 8: The release notes for a previous build announced that future updates would only be done for Windows 8.1. For the new JW Library features you will need to upgrade to Windows 8.1. Windows 8.1 is a free upgrade available from the Windows Store. It is a big improvement over Windows 8.0, so you will be happy you took the time to upgrade.

we use tablets with less storage

Dear brothers, Jah has blessed the jw organization so much in your fine works. Please add more blessings by adding an option to save files downloaded via JW LIBRARY, into sd card. here in mid east, we use tablets with less memory storage (6GB free space for acer iconia w3 windows 8.1). our jw videos are more than 6GB,thus , difficult to manage. like Bezalel, we believe that Jah has opened more gifts on you. Thank you very much. Jah will surely strengthen his people.

Amazing! Perhaps notes and highlights?

Hello brothers, This app is amazing. I want to thank Jehovah first of all and you for providing us with this beautiful and functional app. It should would be nice if we could take note and/or highlight the publications. Also Windows 10 is coming out with a new UI, it should will be amazing what you guys will do. Keep up the amazing work!

JW Library is an absolutely beautiful app! Easy interface, user friendly, and a it's a breeze to search for particular Scriptures, topics, or to simply study the Bible and read it.

I love it but I have an issue

I opened and it was working for a while but after I started downloading some publications it went lagging and now when I open it gets stuck at loading screen with the dots...

wonderful app. . . a few suggestions

The new update has made the app much faster and less glitchey. I love it. Thank you so much. It would even be better if it included the ability to highlight. Another thing that would be great would be if the audio of the kingdoms songs allowed you to simultaneously view the lyrics of the song that was playing. Once again, Thank you for all your hard work

Let me first and for most thank Jehovah and our dear brothers for making this app. This has to be the best app out there, I have used the app extensively at my work when there is a need to speak up for Jehovah at the right time and place. This app and all the videos that I can download and be able to show others who and what we are, but most importantly Jehovah. Almost everything at the tips of my fingers to help someone to understand the truth. Living in Utah and working at a hospital where questions come up because of cultural differences and doctors ideas of how things should be such as blood issues, this app has been useful in explaining and dispelling a lot of ideas. I am as all who love and have downloaded this app will find it really useful in our ministry today, we are truly blessed thanks to Jehovah and the brothers.
