Old became New 5/5
As a child, I would see Our Daily Bread devotionals all over my church in small book form. Every book that I got my hands on was both inspirational and intriguing.
Now that it is in a convenient app that not only inspires you to read your devotional on a daily basis, it also has a new devotional every day that is written by a diverse group of individuals with an assortment of racial backgrounds. From individuals who grew up in Asia to those who grew up here in the Americas, this devotional has a bit for everyone to be inspired and hear the message of God.
AM support 5/5
As a new Christian I needed these little booklets for encouragement.
Great, but... 3/5
I would give it a five but the huge problem I have with this app is the split screen compatibility in the iPad. It’s not smooth at all and it’s very irritating at times.
Mom’s Favorite 5/5
I can remember as a kid seeing my mom every morning sitting. At the kitchen table with her Bible and Daily Bread devotional. She would sit and read and pray.
She has been gone for 30 years now and I find myself daily using my ODB app to sit and read and pray. This is so meaningful. Every day I open it I think of mom and look forward to the day that I’ll see her again.
Someone finally listened and now I can keep both bible gateway and this app separate. The Bible reading now loads within the app without forcing the gateway app to open. This is a much smoother experience and I hope it would continue. I was thinking about taking of a star as the daily reminders have now become buggy.. but that’s very minor. I’m keeping the bulk of the previous review I did months ago in case they try to “ fix” the app again and ruin it.
I partner with ODB because of the long and fruitful time they have helped me in my university years 20 years ago. I moved from paper to electronic several years ago even though the booklet version was still "free". I believed that some other person who cannot afford to pay (as I was years ago) could benefit from a free booklet.
What has generally been useful tool I use to help with my spiritual walk with God, has now become a horrible chore. This year, the app was completely updated with a fresh & new look. This was initially mildly problematic, but as with anything new, they worked them out and offered some benefits. I especially enjoyed looking at the artwork.
Things have gone steadily worse since that. I am unsure if this is licensing issues, or if this is a way to help those who do not have Internet access all of the time to be able to be off-line completely and do their devotions. However, by linking one app to another ( bible gateway) which they cannot control, is a fiasco where reading the most simple verse is met with 5 to 10 crashes in the iPad version.
I try not to be petty and pray and look up the verses manually.. but in a moment where the time carved out for devotions ( I often work 100+ hours a week) become constrained due to a child that needs consoling or other event, you end up skipping part of your devotions which is another tool our adversary can use against us..
I'm starting to realize that this is becoming a stumbling block to me. I'm sure I'm not alone with this and the main damage by having a good app gone bad is not physical user frustration, but spiritually enabling the adversary to claim victory in a Christian's walk- opposite of what this app was intended to do.
That's why I'm giving this app a 1+ rating.. Hopefully, the makers of this app and Bible gateway's app would come together in unity to make the new format work and I'll look forward to the updates. Also, ODB can simply build in an option to either open bible verses in the ODB app ( a cleaner and more intuitive look) as was done previously, or send the link online ( as was before this latest update ) while working out the kinks in the iPad app issues.
In the meantime, I can no longer recommend this app to new Christians on others out of fear it becomes a stumbling block to others, and I'm having to look for another App to use for devotions.
I will keep checking back when updates are released- if only because of the wonderful work the ODB organization has done (& continue to do) in spreading the word.
I love it 4/5
I love reading our daily bread but it won't let me download October and it crashes
Add Instagram to options please
Found a fix 4/5
I was unable to open links to Scriptures from the app until I deleted my Bible Gateway app from my iPad. Now ODB works just fine. Can’t imagine why the two apps would conflict with each other or why there seems to be no interest in resolving the issue.
A few recommendations 4/5
By Shera D Girl
I love the ODB app; however, it would be nice of the Reading Plans changed each month. Once you’ve read them all, that’s it.

App is worthless 1/5
I loved this app and used it daily in my devotions but now it crashes every time I try to open it. I finally deleted it off my iPhone. If it continues to crash, I'm going to delete from my iPad as well. Too bad - used to be a great devotional tool. I finally just started going to the odb website for the devotional.
Love the devotion but...... 3/5
As soon as I open it, it suddenly closes. The app needs help!
From a 5 to a 1 1/5
This is/was a 5 star app. Right now it performs like a 1 star app.
I have used this app for the last 5 years. Its a wonderful & spiritual way to start your day. I really like the ODB app but, it started messing up.
The problem: something in the latest updates has made the app crash. I cannot get the app to stay open. I reset my phone and the results were the same. I deleted the app, reloaded it & got the same results. As of today, the app is unusable.
Please fix the issue.
KEEPS CRASHING!!!! 1/5
Have installed and installed and installed and it still crashes! Please fix! Thank you!

Horrible update! 1/5

9/5/17 update....still not working! I like ODB but I don't know what they're doing to make it NOT WORK! Change my rating to one-half star!
Please fix 1/5
By Ms. OhsoFine
For the past 3-4 days the app closes immediately after opening I have not be able to read the daily bread. I've tried power cycling my device and uninstalling/reinstalling the app only find that doesn't resolve the issue. I am on the verge of deleting the app for good if not fixed soon

AWESOME DEVOTIONAL BUT APP CRASHES 3/5

Crashes way too often 3/5
The App is awesome, Gods word at your fingertips and amazing devotional but it crashes regularly.
Can't use app due to crashing 2/5
I loved the app the first week or two I had it and the last two weeks it keeps crashing. I prefer not to get on my emails right away so I like to go to the app and read a daily devo but the app won't even open.
Love this app, but can't use it because it crashes. Won't let me review in the app. Had to go to app store to write this. What is solution?
App was working fine until it started crashing 1/5
In the last few days, the Daily Bread has been working fine. But tonight is the first time this app started crashing. Not sure why this is happening but I hope this problem gets fixed asap.

I absolutely love this app and use it daily as part of my daily devotional. But the last few days the app has been crashing within seconds of opening. PLEASE update and debug!
Crashes will not open 1/5
Very disappointing. I have been using this app daily for years. Once September rolled around, the app will not open just flashes on and then nothing ... gone. Please fix ASAP.
Latest update/ THANK YOU for the Fix!!!! 5/5
The latest update does not allow me to go back to Daily Bread from Bible verse of the day to read. Must close Bible app then reopen Daily Bread. Previously after reading Bible verse there was a "done" icon to click on and close Bible app and take me back to where I was on Daily Bread. Thank you
Works great now-----Thank you
Having problems again, sometime app opens and just closes. Tried delegating app and reloading, still closes on its own. Maybe 3-4 days works perfect, then just stops.
Crashes on iPhone 6S+ 1/5
Great app... when it worked. Now always crashes 🙁
Used to work great, now continually crashes
Our Daily Bread Review 4/5
I love this app and use it every morning during my devotion and special with the Lord. However, there are recent issues with this app. It opens and shut down immediately. I restarted my devices hoping that will correct the problem but it didn't. Hoping this problem will be corrected soon. BTW I love the changes in making it possible to hear the bible in a year but it only plays the first part but not the second part unless you go out and come back in from the start. It does not flow into the New Testament verse. Also need that to be fixed. Thanks for this great apps and willing to make it better.
Last Update... 2/5
Since the last update, it crashes every time I open. Good app when it works though.
Love the Devotionals 2/5
I love the Devotionals but the app keeps crashing it needs to be updated for bug fixes I now have to go on social media to read the Devotionals

2017-this update is horrible. Too much in the ap. Links to previous devotions & scripture. Can you just keep it simple?
App not responding. Keeps dropping every time I try the readings 3/5
Other than it was a good app.
Love the app, 5/5
But today it won't open. Acts like it will but goes back to the home page.
