best Bible app

Purchase the different versions once and use them across all devices - android, windows, etc. Search, sync, notes are all great tools. Keep building your library. I have used Pocket Bible since its Palm Pilot days and it keeps getting better.

Great App

This is a great app. I used it in my studies on a regular basis. I really like the fact that I can copy & paste to my PC notes for reference. the only thing that would make it better is that I could add notes to scripture in the free app.

very useful tool

I like pocket bible for it's ease in looking up verses, I know, but have forgotten where they are. I love the fact that the bibles and study materials you download, stay with you, so that you don't need to have a WiFi connection to enjoy them. And I do enjoy them. I give it four stars, because I have to work out some issues. I have bought additional modules, and like them. I hope to see improvements, and would be willing to pay for this program.

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!

The best!

I had this app on my phone and now on my Surface P3 running Windows 10 and I find myself using it for my morning quiet times more than my physical bible. To really open its full potential you have to pay a little bit, but it's so worth it.

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.

We have hopefully stopped it crashing when trying to update the live tile, and will try and gather further information so that Microsoft can fix the bug. - Worked around a Windows 8.1 bug causing a crash after the application has been restored. - Better handling of css styles when converting some notes - Fixed a crash when using Ctrl+Y to display the copy flyout - Put in place a potential work around for a crash that occurs when selecting a book in the library.
