Thank you 5/5
App is so so valuable
Won't Load 3/5
I have an Air 2 and when I try to load the app, all I see on the home page is loading icons. The app freezes on me and crashes out. I rebooted the app to see if that would fix it, but it does not. Hope no one else is encountering this. I am running iOS 10.2 beta.
iOS 10.2 beta 2 came out and still having the same issues with the app crashing.
App works now.
Suggestions: Please add a notes feature. Also, please release the Windows app on Xbox One.
Another great update! 5/5
By Review Kingdom
Keeps getting better!
Why 2 videos for study bible and some others? Anything different?
Please can there be a Play All Button for the downloaded songs added so you don't have to keep pressing play each time and looking at phone? Love it!! Use it!!
Good app!! 5/5
By Milpitas 69
I like this app because it's teaches about God and it has movies,videos for kids and yeah that's why.
What a fantastic app!!! Thank you! 5/5
I absolutely love JW Library. What a well thought out app. I can't imagine the amount of time, effort, and planning goes into making an app with such a huge library of publications (in so many languages) work so fluidly.
The things you have stated you have planned are on the top of my list too. In addition to what you already have planned, here are a couple things that would make using JW Library even better for me (in order of importance):
1) Ability to back up any personal annotations to a location outside of the app. This would be to minimize the loss of all the time & effort put into studying. It would also act as a temporary way of syncing devices manually.
2) Underlining in addition to highlighting (red, green, black, blue)
3) URL scheme and the ability to create links to scriptures or paragraphs in publications. These links could then be pasted in reference material outside of JW Library to quickly open to the desired location. For example jwlibrary://pub/b/NWT/46:3:6-46:3:6 would open to 1Cor 3:6. Since the basic format is already there, just simply opening the app to allowing the links to be activated from outside sources would be good enough for now.
5) Automatic sync between iOS devices
6) Being able to make links within personal notes that will open other verses or publications
These suggestions are by no means a criticism of your hard work. I fully recognize the immensity of developing an app of this kind. Getting it right the first time is more important than being feature rich but buggy. Thank you again for all your hard work!
Problems playing original songs 5/5
I'm having problems playing the original songs continuously in my Iphone.
By Blue robot
This app is perfect! You brothers did an excellent job! So I looked into the Bible playing thing aaaand it turns out whenever it didn't work my tablet was on mute?😂
We use it every day 5/5
Thanks for this app. It is in constant use in our household.
Suggestion: ability to turn highlighting off.
Reason: Most of the time when trying to copy information, I end up inadvertently highlighting instead. This would be great for individuals who use other apps (Like PDF Expert) to study our publications.
dear brothers could you make the app avaliable for macbooks, highly apreciate everythign you do
Best App Ever! 5/5
JW.Org was the best thing that happened to the internet. Now, it's happening again, JW Library is the best thing that happened to any App Store. It's easy to use but most of all, it's perfect for preaching both formal and informal.
Thank Jehovah soooo much!
Great app! 5/5
By M Debobo
Very easy to use and so helpful for those interested in learning more about the Bible!
Sooo many languages.!😍🙂 5/5
So helpful. I love the App. Thanks to Jehová
Thank you! 5/5
I love it!
Excellent app! :D 5/5
Thank you for all the work that has been put into such a wonderful and useful app, I thank all the brothers and sisters that collaborated to create it, especially Jehovah for it. :)
Now can I make a suggestion?
Could note taking be taken in consideration to be implemented into the app? It would be very useful to take notes on an answer to a question for commentary or for example adding additional texts to a highlighted answer.
With love from your brother, keep up the worldwide work :)
Can't download anything 2/5
I updated my iPad recently. Ever since I can't download anything. I keep getting the message that I am not connected to the Internet, but I am. What should I do?
I love the app thank you, but one thing I do regret to say is that when I try to play my music I can't hear a thing. I even deleted the app and download it again to no avail please help me I want to hear the music on my iOS. Thank you and thank you Jehovah
Fantastic Tool 5/5
By AJ djnz
I use a lot of apps and this is as world class as any. Now if only we could consolidate and harmonize all the content and knowledge from all the JW apps, library, cds etc, it would make study and research much easier.
Also cant wait to be able to write notes and my talks right into the app, so all that is also in one universal place.
Thank you Brothers! 5/5
This is such a wonderful tool for us! I'm appreciative every day and with every new update. If I could offer one thing, if possible, could there be a note feature? It would help to have notes where comments could be saved at paragraphs and different parts on the workbook. Thank you for all your hard work and for making a way for us all to digitally keep up with the chariot!
Love it 5/5
Love this app so much is so helpful in hall. So happy the organization made this app. 😍😍
Very extensive. Lots of books and videos. Hundreds of languages. Best app.
Add note taking features plz 5/5
I thank you for giving us such a wonderful app. I think that this app covers everything needed for meetings and field service except one. In your next update can you please please add a note taking feature. I think this is one way you can make an already great app even greater.
Brothers thank you!!!! 5/5
I want to thank the brothers that made this app. Also I love jehovah so much!!!By a random 12 year old

Best Bible study app there is.
Firm step 5/5
By Bunny Belen
This app can only help, in installing it.
Keeps getting better!! 5/5
Thanks for all your hard work!!!! I love love love this app for studying, the ministry and meetings!!
1. Would love if we could take notes in the app either by typing or using the Apple Pencil.
2. Would love to be able to zoom in on the pictures in the publications.
I love you Jehovah
Love it💕 however.. 4/5
I love everything about the app it keeps getting better and better. However I wish there was more bookmarks and note taking. Besides that it makes it so much easier to fit in bible reading through out the day and have key scriptures at hand
Phones Reading Watchtower During Meeting 5/5
This is an excellent app. I am taking the time now to offer a suggestion to improve the app and eliminate distractions during the meeting. At our Hall, many times a phone or tablet will begin reading the Watchtower during the Watchtower study! I believe the cause of this is the play button located at the top of the page to allow the Watchtower to be read to you. While this is a great tool for some users, a way to improve it would be that once you click the play button, a pop up occurs asking you to confirm you want to play the Watchtower or other publications. This way users during the meeting will not accidentally tap the play button during the meeting and disturb our study. It is usually our older brothers and sisters so they have to get up and go to the bathroom to figure out the problem. Please keep this suggestion in mind and I know you all will make the right decision! Thanks again.
BEST APP EVER 5/5
GREAT APP !!! Now it only needs to have an action where you can make notes on the articles, magazines and bible texts on the app so I don't have to take an additional notebook for my notes. It is the only thing it needs to be perfect !!!!
Many thanks 5/5
Thank you so much for this provision. I am deeply grateful for the ease of use this app gives when studying "the deep things of God". The highlight, bookmark, and history features are indispensable to finding great points again and again. Two things I ask that you add: the ability to make notes, and folders of some sort to save study or research projects to (much the way the Watchtower Library CD-ROM used to have). Thank you once again for this blessing.
Appreciative user 5/5
I wish to thank you so much for this app! I use it all the time, and appreciate how you keep improving it. A couple of things I would like to see in the future if you can, I would love to be able to enlarge the images for better viewing, and I would love to be able to type in notes while studying for meetings. These things would help me on bible studies, and giving more personal comments at meetings. I will be patient, as I know you are working very hard for us. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. You have created the most useful app ever!!!
With the newest update, I am now having trouble playing the original songs continuously on my iPod, can you please make all the music shuffle and repeat please? I don't want the music to ever end, I want to be able to keep them playing so I can learn all the words. Thank you again for all your hard work, you help me more and more every time I use the app.I would also like for the other languages I have selected to be included in the shuffle repeat mode please. Thank you again for all your hard work!
Amazing App!! 😍👍🏻
Thank you,thank you,thank you!!!! 5/5
I can not thank you enough for this app I know it came out some time ago but the updates make it function beautifully. As a young one myself I find it easier to use it in the meetings and ministry. And to just thank all the brothers and sisters involved of the making in this app. It is a true blessing from Jehovah to still make it in these difficult times, so you brothers and sisters making more improvements I personally couldn't ask for a more better tool for doing Jehovah's work. So once again thank you brothers and sisters immensely for all the work you do for the organization and more importantly for Jehovah.Thank you dear brothers and sisters.❤️
We all love this app brothers, thank you.
Some of us have only devices with limited storage (16gb) in my case.
Downloading content from the app to my device sometimes requires me to delete apps, videos and fotos, due to not enough space.
Is it possible that we can have the option to stream instead of downloading videos, or both?
Thanks in advance.
I love this app, and the new features with the home page are great for easy access to certain tools that are used more frequently.
I do have a request: I just got the amazon echo, and would love to have a "skill" for the JW library so that it could read the daily text in the morning. That'd be awesome :)
AND the ability to add a bookmarked article to my favorites would be nice, instead of the whole magazine or publication
Love It 5/5
Can't imagine going back to old way of studying. Makes everything efficient and easy. I have people at the door ask me about it all the time and they are super impressed. One girl downloaded it on the spot on our first visit the other day. And was so impressed that she could use it for our Bible study. Thanks, it's the best! Thank Jehovah for it everyday.
A Gift From Jehovah! 5/5

Esta app es SÚPER inestable, no le ponen mucho interés por lo visto 😐 1/5
By Jese Arana
Hermanos realmente está app tiene mucho potencial pero realmente tiene DEMASIADOS problemas, lo peor es que ya tiene tiempos de haber sacado esta app ya deberían a ver arreglado estos problemas uno de ellos es que cuando uno pone una lectura de la Biblia todo bien pero cuando tiene que pasar al otro capítulo no pasa a el sino qué pasa hasta más adelante y tiene otras más además de ser bastante inestable y si siempre la actualizo, deberían de ponerle más interés ya que es una de sus herramientas principales 😐😐
Apple Pencil 5/5
Thank you for Apple Pencil support!

Great App 5/5
I want say much. This a a great app and I really appreciate it.
