Great Tool

I have been using Laridian's Bible software since before there were smart phones. They keep getting better and better. The Windows app for Pocket Bible is quick and user friendly. I have full access to my Laridian library. This is an excellent tool!

Best bible

I've been using this application for over 15 years I think. I originally bought it for my pocket pc. Laridian has really kept their buy it once promise. While other companies always force you to upgrade whenever they make improvements or when you change platforms. The side by side viewing of the bible and notes is great. And it's fast and easy to use. The selection and quality of their bibles is the best too. I used the android version for a while which wasn't quite as good as this windows version. But it has improved greatly and matches their other versions. It's amazing how they keep the look and feel consistent across all the operating systems. Thanks.

Great way to study the Bible

It takes some time to get used to navigating the app, but it is so worth the time. I have greatly enjoyed my study times with added commentaries and Strong's references. The ability to add books is very useful. I highly recommend this app for anyone wanting to take their Bible study to a deeper level but doesn't want to invest in an entire seminary library.

almost great

I've used Laridian since Palm Pilot days, and have loved it for years. I'm disappointed that the features I've grown to love are only available on Advanced Features that require purchase on each platform. I finally bit the bullet for Android; now my Win 8.1 app wants more $ so I can see what I've highlighted, etc across platforms. I am glad for the "buy once & forever" of the main Bible program and the versions; just am frustrated to not even be able to highlight on the Win 8.1 app without paying more. Then I think, "well, at least that will be the whole program," but then I wonder if there will be other features that will require another Advanced Option of some kind? If you know this beforehand, it's easier, I think. I don't like the nickel-and-dime approach. As Bible software, thought, this is an incredible program!

I've been using PocketBible for many years now and I recently got a new computer with Windows 8.1, which forced me to upgrade to this version of PocketBible. I'm not a fan of change, but after I adjusted to the different nuances of this new version, I can honestly say that I love it. PocketBible has never failed me and it continues to be my favorite Bible program of all time.

Great Bible Study Tool

I've used Laridian's Pocket Bible and Bible Study tools for many years. I first started on my Palm Pilot more than a decade ago. The software is not overly complicated and lets me focus on the study rather than the tool. The policy of never having to repurchase when I change platforms is outstanding. The prices for new books and study tools have always been reasonable. Laridian is a true Bible study partner.

Terrific Application

Great library for daily readings. Enjoy having multiple panes. Although I am slightly disappointed that This app can't play to a device right now. Audio would be nice to have now and then. Overall, I would recommend this app to anyone.

Advanced features

I have had this app on three different devices and I paid for the advanced feature pack each time. This has always been my favorite bible app. Great to have my study library wherever I go. Pocket bible ROCKS.

Flexible, fast, and full of features.

The PocketBible allows for multiple versions and supplemental information to be synced and displayed as well as allowing multiple books to be tied to each sub-window for easy switching during study. A minimum amount of screen is lost to borders allowing for easy reading without a lot of clutter. The depth of available titles and packages will be more that sufficient for most study needs. I have continued to use this programmer's original Quickverse program for years, unable to find a program as robust and easy to use. This program is the best replacement I have found.
