Best of The Best

Keeps me alert to latest publications, great for study, and use in the ministry. Just can't ask for or expect anymore from a app designed to keep spiritual health at its best.

Love It... but streaming function for audio not working

Love the new version and ability to add notes and backup. Thanks so much for making this tool available. One thing I have noticed so far is that streaming function is not working to listen to audio. Also when trying to change volume in streaming mode, the app closes every time. Uninstalled and reinstalled 3 times already with same result. Running Windows 10 Creators update

I use this app so much!

It's easy to use. It's loaded with research materials and interesting videos for all ages. I use it to help my students really understand the Bible!

What a great app!! 1 request to developers

I love the app, it is undoubtedly the best out there! Requests for the developers: 1. Is it possible to have a merge option? 2. Would it be possible to open two different publications side by side? That's a great function for someone learning a new language. Thank you for your hard work!

Love it!!!!

Multi-translations is wonderful when out in the field or informal witnessing. Easily accessible from my android phone which means I can study material, read the bible, etc. without having to carry a lot of publications like on my lunch break.

A wonderful FREE bible study app...

This app continues to get better and better with each update. I see some making negative comments about certain glitches, but they should keep in mind that this app is being provided for FREE and that it's developers put a lot of time and effort to not only constantly improve it with each update, but also having to keep up with each evolving OS for all the various devices out there! Also, I truly think SOME of these user "glitches" may possibly be user/device issues. The publisher does provide support/tutorials/FAQ's for each OS on their official website. They provide a link to this right on this Store page. Besides, is there another app out there that even comes close to matching this one in it's category??? The unbelievable amount of available languages??? I personally want to say THANK YOU to the developers and publishers for all your continued efforts in providing this wonderful tool for FREE!

Best app I've ever had.

I just saw the 14 new apps on the android version, so I know that shortly we'll have it on the windows version as well. This, along with the upcoming abilities to use place markers, highlight texts, etc., will even eliminate the need for a reader app. Just incredible!

Highlighting Would Be Most Excellent To Have

I am anxiously waiting for the highlighting and note taking feature!!! Then this will truly be an all-in-one app!! For those that are looking for the other translations and languages, when you touch or click on Bible/ Books, long press or right click on that page. Along the bottom you will see a bar pop up and a button that says "Languages". That's where you can download the other translations of the Bible as well as other languages. For the phone, I believe that Languages button is along the top, but it looks the same as the PC/Tablet app button. Like a cartoon caption bubble with a capitol "A" and a symbol in the bubble. Hope this helps!
