Easy to use, reliable

This app always seems to work just fine for me and it pretty easy to use. The only thing I would change is that I wish when I use a link to a different scripture that there was an easy way to get back to the first one I was looking at. Maybe it's there and I haven't found it yet. :)

the best bible study app

It works great, I only have to buy books once and can use on all my devices. The cost of adding to my collection is very reasonable

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.

Great Bible app

This is not only a great Bible app, it's the best app I've found in the store. It's easy to use, it makes sense, and it keeps the focus on the scriptures, where it belongs.

There is none better!

It snaps well when using split screen, and the performance is good. The bookmark feature is great. I would like more control over highlighting, but the new ability to open notes in a new window is excellent. I find that I'm frustrated by the limited formatting available in notes.

Should use on a touchscreen

I prefer PocketBible on a tablet, but I also use it on my laptop which isn't touchscreen. It is a little less friendly on the laptop than on a touchscreen device. It is more user-friendly on a touchscreen.

Great App

I have used several Bible products. PocketBible is by far the easiest to go back and forth from OneNote to Bible (where I take my notes), Copy & Paste, find references and other functions. Though it does not work with my MS Pen, it is easy to use. I am finding more and more ways to use it. Though I love my paper Bible, I have begun to use PB with OneNote in Church to take notes on the sermon. I can copy the verse from PB, paste it into ON and use my pen to take notes as my pastor discusses and teaches. I am on Win 10 using a Surface Pro 3.

Great App!

I really like that it can display more than one version at a time with the split screen function. Just wish additional versions didn't cost quite so much.

This is a great app! Being able to view multiple versions of the Bible and commentaries simultaneously is invaluable. My favorite combination is NIV + NIV Bible Study Notes + Life Application Study Notes. I also have it on my iPhone. It's so useful to have bookmarks sync automatically. I feel fully equipped in personal reading and in my bible study group. Amazing!

I Love It

I love the way it opens. The left side has the different versions to choose from. The right side has the Books of the Bible that makes selections easier. It is come convenient at best.
