Thank you for creating such an awesome app-having so many translations of the Bible at your fingertips is amazing!
Bible Gateway 4/5
The only thing I don't like about this app (& all others as well) is, every time I exit, & later, go back into it, it never begins with the verse I left off at, but instead begins at verse 1 of the same book. Is there a way to make it pick up at the same place where I left it at?
Works well but…… 3/5
Works well but I wish Audio would stay on longer when I pause it,and it's not consistent with version I pick like for example I prefer the "Dramatize Audio " when I pause it for more than a minute (which by the way shuts the app off) turning it back on will automatically default it to "Max McLean Audio "and the verse of the day never goes to the correct scripture page most days ,so safe to say it's 3 stars for me ✋🏻
Very good! 5/5

I like how it's all organized

This app is an excellent source tool for anyone willing to grow spiritually. Blessings.
Bible Gateway Plus 5/5
By Brown Bevill
A great new way to dig deeper into the Bible with numerous resources/references.
Like it - However... 4/5
I like Bible Gateway very much, however I like to highlight and I am not given any option except to highlight or underline ENTIRE verse. Wish I could choose words or phrases! This would make it a 5 for me but for now just a 3.
Also, it would be nice if the verses I highlight would carry over when I switch translations. Also, it would be great if the app was interactive between my devices.
Great app. If you don't want to read the Bible, you can listen !! Learn with good resources ! Fun to use I hope everyone will likes it. Thank you again
Best app for learning The Bible. Read, listen, check out resources. God Bless you all.
Disable timeout 3/5
While I like Biblegateway, I'm not too happy with the mobile app. I have seen bank apps with a longer timeout than this one. Since there is nothing secure on this site, there should be no need for a timeout at all. Today I was trying to catch up on my reading plan. I got interrupted 3 times. Each time I came back the app had timed out and I had to navigate back to the day I was on and find where I left off. Frustrating.
Also, when I open the reading plan each day, scrolling doesn't work unless I first click on the day and then click Done.
THE KILLER APP FOR SERIOUS BIBLE STUDY! 5/5
Bible Gateway sets the bar high for all other bible study apps. I am a software engineer and have seen killer apps. By the same token, I have seen a lot of mediocre software. Bible Gateway (along with Faithlife Logos) is arguably the killer app of mobile bible study software. As an experienced software expert, I would grade it SUPERIOR and highly recommend it to all serious bible students who demand the best. I would also highly recommend the Faithlife Logos bible study app which offers an extremely well designed interface and offers a wealth of outstanding bible study materials.
Great app 5/5
I find this very easy to use. I do not use the reading plan since I like to do what the Spirit wants me to but the comparison part is great..... And it's free!
Not working with my in progress reading plan 1/5
By T. Gabriel
I started a daily reading plan through the website. Then I thought I'd see if there's an app to make it a little easier to keep up with. I logged in, but it's not showing my reading plan and wants me to start over (I'm months into it). What's the point of the login if it doesn't work throughout all the platforms?
Generally Great! I mean it's FREE folks! 4/5
Great App for reading and study God's word but agree needs some bug fixing and dislike ads I don't care to see. I paid to upgrade was not supposed to see ads!
One the better Apps 5/5
I like this app very much, I use this app all the time.
Please include Catholic versions 2/5
The website has several, the app has none.
So much for no cost at all.
This Bible is absolutely amazing it has everything I need to study 💜💜💜
I love your website. 1/5
This app is sadly not what I was expecting. The online experience is amazing, but I was expecting since I was paying for a subscription that I would be able to access all the same material I can on the website and I still get ads on the app. I'd like all the devos available online to also be available on the app.
Like the app, but 4/5
Please tell me I can pay for an upgrade so that I don't have to deal with the adds.
Easy to use!! 5/5
By Murky peer
Love the ease of use & all the translation options!
Stop the Ads on member accounts! 3/5
Ads are very distracting and need to not happen on those who pay for upgraded access!
Update the App! 1/5
I like this App a lot but unfortunately it crashes a lot now. Please update thanks
App Bugs 3/5
This would be a great app if.... they would fix whatever bug it is that tells me that none of my searches are either found or available. And I would have accessed support instead of making this a negative review except that came up with a blank screen. C'mon guys. I use this app all the time. Can't tell you how many times I've deleted it and re-downloaded it just to access it properly. :(
Grandpa s 4/5
The reader is easy to understand and the options are great.
Use this App 💯 5/5
By D Yardo
Start using this tool & it will change you.
Pray to draw closer to God.
Believe he will hear you and he'll draw closer to you.
Share this APP with friends and you will be rewarded⤴
Great app! 5/5
By Bald Eagle 39401
Perfectly wonderful app. You can easily find the passage you want and change between versions with two taps. There are a multitude of versions available. I use this app daily.
Needs bug fixing severely 1/5
This app is my Bible app a few updates ago and ever since I've updated it it has so many bugs like when I click dramatized for audio Bible listening it will stay out Paul Simmons or Mac to clean. And when I go to like a book like Matthew chapter 5 it will bring me to chapter 4 or proverbs 37 helping me to 39 it does that with every chapter you look up and you have to scroll to the correct one is so annoying and there are so many other bugs to go over your coding!!!!
This uplifting app is exceedingly helpful in my daily relationship growth with our FATHER. May this ministry be continually Blessed as it continually Blesses me and many other souls. Thank you. May GOD Bless you all.
XXX font size is too small. Unable to see it. 3/5
Unable to read daily scripture because font size is too small even if I place font on XXX Large in settings
Great App 5/5
Helps me stay on track with my walk with God
Outstanding Free Audio Bibles 5/5
I love listening to Marquis Laughlin read the ESV. His voice is tranquil, and he reads slowly, which makes him easy to follow. Move over, Max McLean.
Go to Bible 5/5
This has become my go to Bible. I love that is is easy to use and has so many different version of the Bible. Many times I will look up those versions to get a better understanding of the meaning. Notes are very easy to make as well. I use the highlight feature quite a bit. I plan to use the audio more as time goes on. Love this app😊
By Lisa Davis in Dallas
The settings are limited and frustrating!! I want New Testament daily reading NOT OLD TESTAMENT daily reading. I have to contact Tech Support regularly to get this NEW TESTAMENT daily reading.
Search issue on mobile app 2/5
Let me begin by saying that I use Bible Gateway regularly for study, research, and teaching material preparation. The online site has been wonderful and until today, so had the mobile app. I am writing this review primarily in hopes that the developers will find it and resolve an issue I found today when using this app on an iPhone 6 Plus. I have never had this issue happen before today, and have no idea why it suddenly began occurring.
So today, I was searching the following string of keywords in the AMP version: "that disciple would not die”. The mobile app simply would not find it. It consistently failed and also kept giving me the following popup message: “Connection Error - Are you offline? You can search…”. When this happened, I was getting four bars on the Verizon network.
When I got back to my office, I tried the same search on the website, biblegateway.com, and it went right to the phrase in John 21:23. So there appears to be some issue with the search routine in the mobile app.
I use this app (and website) quite a bit, so hopefully the app search routine can be fixed.
Thanks : )
I gotta say.. 4/5
I love bible gateway, but please make this app as the website version. So I can highlight with diff colors...... the web version on the phone is better and much more useful honestly saying......
Favorite App 5/5
I love my Bible Gateway! Easy to use. Easy to study with! Getting to commentaries an notes for each verse is swift and practical. I use this app regularly through the day. I recommend it to everyone and all my students. Thanking God for this great technology
No modern translations 3/5
I am deeply disappointed that this app did not have any recent (last 50 years) Catholic translations of the Bible. While I like to learn from several translations, I would prefer to have a Catholic translation as my default translation.
This is the first app that I download when I get a new device (on my 4th). I use it daily. Very GOOD!
Great app except 3/5
I have been using this app for about 6 months and love all of its excellent features. However, in future updates, could you please include a way to easily bookmark where I left off reading and also a way to highlight passages so I can share them with other people?
Best Bible App 5/5
Thanks! Love the audio, highlighting and many more! Just another great way to enjoy the Bible!
The Audio 1/5
I am really upset. Why doesn't the audio option work?!
I use it everyday 5/5
The best Bible app! I use it everyday, especially to compare Scripture in different translations. Easy to use and my first "go to" for looking up chapter and verse.
Lack of stability 3/5
I truly love to rate this Bible app 5 stars...but there are several things that are not user friendly or practical. First off the app needs wi-fi to use, second every time you reopen it your passages aren't saved...especially when you're comparing different versions of the Bible side by side, which is one of its best features
Shopping with devotion 2/5
Way too many ads while I am trying to study the Bible. The ads are distracting. Deleted the ap.
Beautiful Blessing 5/5
Easy to use, great availability..
Frustrated already 3/5
I have only had this a few days, but already I am frustrated. I found it difficult to change the plan for reading through the Bible in one year once it was set.
After I had the plan the way I wanted it, I set the reminder. The second day I was busy and didn't do my Bible reading, so I thought that I would make up for it the next day and read two sections but the app doesn't seem to allow that. I can not get it to the next passage. Further, I chose " the NT in one year" and the app just seems to give random passages out of the New Testament so there is no way to manually go to the next passage.
Perhaps, once you chose a plan, if there were a list of the passages in the order you are going to read them, you could then choose the next one.
Also, in the history section, it doesn't show the daily Bible reading. It only seems to show the additional passages you chose to read.
Since I couldn't read any extra for "the New Testament in a year", I started reading the Old Testament and that is the only thing that shows in my history.
So far, I am not liking this app very much.☹️️
Great Bible App! 5/5
I love this app! Quick and easy to use. Can even use while worshipping on Sunday.
Good but still needs improvement 1/5
I have used this app forever and it is the one I go back to but it needs some work. It frustrates me when I click on the link under the daily bible verse since it usually takes me to the whole verse in the Bible but it glitches. It takes me to whatever spot I left off on rather than to the verse I clicked on. Please fix! When it's fixed I'll give 5 stars.
A very functional and useful app 4/5
By RC in SC
I've had this app for sometime now for a number of different things related to ministry. I like using the audio feature for listening while on the go. However, one of my frustrations homepage I still have to go through a few clicks. It would be nice to be able to just click on listen begins to pick up. Nonetheless, I have enjoy using it for study as well as personal reading.
The best bible app! 5/5
I have used many different bible apps and this one is by far the best. It has all the features in one app from audio bible to notes and more. I highly recommend.
