Update is terrible 1/5
By kitty kat 1100
The update is terrible. I lost my place in the 365 daily read ya. When I try to go to any of the days 200 and beyond the app kicks me out. I haven’t been able to use this since I updated. Please fix!
Update not good 3/5
This app was way better before the upgrade! I loved using it to take notes at church and on my own, but now the notes glitch out whenever I try to add scripture references to them. Also it doesn’t save my place in the Bible automatically which makes it hard to remember where I left off. This app has really helped me in my faith journey and I hope they fix the issues soon!
Redesign issues 3/5
The redesign of the app is pretty but breaks some things that used to work. When I'm reading the scripture and devotional from a reading plan, I can no longer copy either verses from the Bible or text from the devotional. This is annoying because I like to journal about the reading in another app. There are also some formatting issues: each verse in the Bible is now displayed on a new line (rather than continuously in a paragraph), and quoted sections inside devotionals are no longer formatted differently than the surrounding text.
New layout not good 2/5
I’m sorry but I much preferred the old layout. This new design is not all as user friendly and just lacks so much. Much harder to find things and the user experience has declined
It was better before the update 4/5
By John and christi
So I really like the app, and I use it every week at youth group, but the update wasn’t very nice. I like being able to sign in, but the problem is I primarily use the app for the Bible and the notes, and now it takes like 10 clicks to get to the notes. And the layout of the notes isn’t very user friendly. I can say I like how you can switch between the different things on the bottom, and signing. I would just like if the notes could be changed so it’s more user-friendly. Thank you.
Great new version! 4/5
By Roberta Barcelos
In the my plans page. im not able to scroll all the way down. I cant select the last plan. also, in the lock screens page, the she reads truth name is cut out at the top on the iphonex due to the notch.
New update 1/5
New update is HORRIBLE!!! Very confusing to navigate and some things do not load when you click on them. I was up to 86% on the "Bible in a year" plan and now all of my progress is GONE!! Could not be more unhappy with the new version. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND UNTIL ALL OF THE NEW PROBLEMS ARE SOLVED! Old version was perfect and simple.
Great content, not a great experience 2/5
The older versions of this app were very simple and ran very smoothly. I loved being able to scroll back through my devotions easily and keep track of which ones I'd read. This is a lot harder to do now as the app runs very slowly and there are lots of errors when trying to load the content. It's also much harder to track progress on the 365 day devotion and I'm frustrated that I lost my place. Please fix these issues! I really do love this app and its devotionals, but these problems are making it so hard to use.
New version problems 1/5
Ok, not sure if it’s just me or what. But this new version is giving me a hard time. It’s not letting me read my scriptures. I started doing the Bible in a year and it lost my tracking from where I began :(
Beautiful update but missing one thing! 3/5
Love the new update. Beautiful look and feel. One thing that’s missing though - Is there a way to get back the feature of swiping between chapters in the Bible section? Having to open the list of books to select a new chapter each time is cumbersome and frustrating. — thanks for all you do!
Do NOT Update!! (Dec 5 2017) 1/5
By CN Megs
All of my progress on my reading plans has been lost. I had to “restore” my purchases.
No longer able to swipe left to mark as read.
App Crashes any time the “Mark as Read” button is hit in the Bible in a year plan.
Currently on the iPhone X.
Better before update! 2/5
I loved She Reads Truth before, but the update seems to have gotten rid of the ability to track your progress - I was most of the way through the Bible In A Year plan and have no idea where to pick back up since the days are numbered and don’t show the date or scripture listed like the old app did. Thank goodness I found the 2015 Bible In A Year plan as a PDF online.
The app is significantly slower now, too. I know there can be bugs with updates, but this is a huge step backwards :(
In-App Purchases Lost 5/5
I lost my reading plans during the last update. Kind of a bummer, not going to lie.
Update: was able to restore. Back to 5 stars!
App Crashes! 2/5
I love SheReadsTruth, and this newly designed app is beautiful and functional! But every time I try to download a lock screen to my phone, the app crashes! Please fix this!! Otherwise, the app is beautiful!
I can go to the website and get the current reading plan for 'free' but the app wants to charge me $1.99 to access it on my iPad??? I can navigate the website THROUGH my iPad for free... why do I want to pay for an app that is going to charge me for everything but the 'free bible' you can read on there? DUMB! I have the "She Reads Truth" Bible, so why do I need an app for reading the bible??? I thought this app was going to be something like a companion FOR the website and the bible. What a waste!
It’s rich and expensive 2/5
I really, really love every aspect of this ministry. It is a biblical solid, and gorgeous app....BUT it is pretty expensive which is a disappointment. I liked another reviewers idea of charging for the app but lower the cost of the devotions etc. The idea is to get as many “She’s” in the Word...it should be priced that way too.
Love it! 1/5
I love this app and use it daily. I've been following the She Reads Truth girls for two years and was so excited when they announced they were making an app. I'm really looking forward to the She Reads Truth 365 plan! Like others, the only complaint I have is having to pay to read the devotionals. I understand that time and effort goes into writing them but nevertheless, I'm on a tight budget. My husband doesn't make a lot of money and we have three kids so most times I can't spare even $1.99 to read them in the app. Not only that but after six months the devotional disappear altogether. It’s upsetting that this whole project is geared towards people who are blessed financially.
My favorite app! 5/5
I absolutely love this app! It is crammed full of so many awesome reading plans. I love having it on my phone to pull up in the middle of the night when I can't sleep- it has taught me a lot about Scripture and I am so thankful for it!
Totally disappointing 1/5
I was looking forward to using this app when traveling. However the things that I was using on my laptop for free cost money and very expensive, I might add. This app while having a lot of promise feel flat and totally not worth the money it would cost over the long haul. It is obvious that this developer did not do a good job in their market analysis. I would not recommend the app
Thankful for SRT 5/5
This app has been such a blessing to me!
By dizz e
Love the Message version
So thankful for this app 5/5
I am so thankful for this app and the ladies of SRT. This has become my go-to way to spend time in the Word consistently. I've benefited from the SRT website, devotionals and community for a long time. It has gotten me in my Bible more, praying more, and just overall has enriched my walk with Jesus. I love that the plans are so scripture-soaked. Ladies, He is using you in mighty ways for His glory. Stay true and humble to that purpose.
Nice layout but... 2/5
SRT has nice content, very eye catching and lures one into invest money in purchasing devotionals. However, I purchased Esther last year and it was taken away. Apparently after 6 months of purchase the plan they retire the plans and we have no access to what was purchased anymore, which makes no sense because I paid $1.99. I ended up emailing them about it and they claimed they were not able to do anything about it. It's disappointing that they weren't able to replace it with another plan.
These devotions are absolutely WONDERFUL. They are completely faith strengthening and the team provide good, honest advice and accurate Biblical accounts. It is filled with conviction, healing, and complete power.
HOWEVER, my only withdrawal is the fact that you have to pay to OWN the devotions. For example, to have a devotion downloaded into the app / onto your phone, you have to pay around $5. However, if you just want to read a devotion, I'd suggest you go to the SRT website, where you can find every devotion archived.
The REASONING behind the payment is because:
(1) Most of those on the SRT team are mothers and this is their job. They have to make money somehow.
(2) You're paying to OWN and DOWNLOAD the devotions. It'd be nice if it were all free, but that is unrealistic. Be glad they're free online, because it'd be a shame to waste such knowledge and wisdom.
So, MY OVERALL REVIEW: ⭐️⭐️⭐️ for the app itself, ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ for the content from SRT.
Bibles leave out most important person 1/5
This app alludes to gaining "truth" but how can that be when the only bible translations provided are ones that have removed God's name (Yahweh/Jehovah) from their 7000 occurrence in the original manuscripts and replaced them (man-made decision) with titles: "Lord and God?" These bibles are not accurate translations. And you have to pay?!? The 'truth' should be free!!!
If you want a truly free Bible study experience, the "JW library" is the place to go! Thousands of Bibles to compare, real study aids to download, content for kids-adults. This app supports hundreds of languages as well!!
Absolutely Love It!!! 5/5
This app is amazing! I love it! There is just one thing I would like to ask of y'all. Could you maybe have a daily verse for us? I know that having a daily verse is really helpful for me just cause it gives me an idea to read. But other than that, I totally recommend this app for y'all!
A Big Help 5/5
I've been using this app for almost a year now and it has greatly improved my life. I really enjoy the devotionals, the community, and all the beautiful touches that go into making it a gorgeous user experience. I don't mind paying a couple of dollars for weeks worth of content. I believe people should be paid for their work. So I'm happy my money goes to the people who curate each study, the people who write the devotionals, the people who design everything so beautifully, to the tech team who is responsible for keeping everything up to date. For the price of a cup of coffee, I get so so much out of the study plans. SRT has seen me through some dark times. For me, it's been completely worth it and I'm really happy to have this app in my life.
Absolutely perfect 5/5
Love how it lets you pick the version you prefer, and it's visually enticing and it keeps your focus. So glad I stumbled upon it.
Ok, but the costs add up! 3/5
By Not ready to pay
I downloaded this bible desiring a closer walk with the Lord. I was excited to be a part of a community of women studying the Word together. I liked the ability to highlight, make notes, copy, etc. the passages. The plans were captivating but each one cost at least $1.99.
I went back to my YouVersion Bible, which I've head for several years. I discovered it had the same features (maybe more) and all the plans are free!
Great App! 5/5
This app has great features!
For those complaining about the fact that lessons/devotions cost extra, remember:
When Jesus sent his disciples out he said:
And remain in the same house, eating and drinking what they provide, for the laborer deserves his wages. Do not go from house to house. - Luke 10:7
Let the elders who rule well be considered worthy of double honor, especially those who labor in preaching and teaching. For the Scripture says, "You shall not muzzle an ox when it treads out the grain," and, "The laborer deserves his wages." - 1 Timothy 5:17-18
Ministry isn't free of cost to those ministering. The developers may not be elders but there is a biblical principle of paying teachers, preachers for their labor.
Great app, worth the cost 5/5
Yes, most of the devos do have a cost - however they are thoughtfully written with beautiful artwork and lots of legwork to put together. You also can download all their beautiful backgrounds for free. This app is a great tool to draw closer to the Lord, and their ministry deserves financial support. Also - you can access all of their devotionals for free on their actual website rather than going through the app if you prefer.
Great encouragement 5/5
This is a great way to encourage Bible study and better than most Bible studies for women who give one verse out of the Bible and then a page of what they have to say. As far as having to pay for a study, I don't understand why people complain about this. You get the Bible in several versions for free. You get many Bible studies for free. These writers are devoting time writing for you and to say God's love is free is equivalent to saying that anyone doing any type of ministry should not be paid for it. Even the apostles were paid in room and board.
Why should I have to pay to do a devotional
Pretty (expensive) 1/5
In theory, this is a very good app. It's organized very well, it looks amazing, and it's easy to use. The only problem is that it's expensive. There are 13 free plans (day by day studies of sections of the Bible), and 36 paid plans. Those planes cost $77 all together. I don't think this app should be free-- it cost money to make and organize. At the same time, each plan should be one dollar MAX (and even that is pushing it). There should be a bundled version with all of the plans for around $5-10 so that way it's easier to purchase. After that, $0.50 a plan. Previous news articles should also be read expect for the last two--I had to go through 67 alerts saying there was an unread news article, which was annoying.
Understand Charge 5/5
I downloaded the app just to give a review. Some of the people were griping about a charge for the app stating that the Gospel and God's love are free. It's true they are. But, plan and simple the Good News of God's love is free, but it's not freely preached. Someone has to pay for time effort and cost of getting the message out there. If God's Word is good enough to read, it's worth a few bucks to get a good app. :)
I recently signed up for the She Reads Truth studies and was ok paying a few dollars for previous devotions. This time though, I Purchased the Romans book and was greatly disappointed to learn I had to still buy the study on the app to read the devotions. For the price of the book, there should be a code for free devotional readings ( my fault for not reading more closely I guess, I thought they'd be in the book!)
Gods love is free . 1/5
By Keyla Rivera
There should be no reason why we have to pay for the plans the word is for everyone to read freely .
Love SRT 4/5
By Mint user for many years
This app really helps me read the Bible everyday, which I love. It is a great motivator. I get the emails for the daily devotional and then read the Bible on the app. I like most everything about app except recently the app wasn't opening. I had to re-download the app which made me loose all of the bookmarks and notes that I had saved. On top of the it uses a lot of memory to have bookmarks and notes saved. Please change this for future versions! It would be awesome if some features synced online so I won't loose notes again!
Easy to use and really creative! (: 5/5
Love this app more than any other ❤️ easy to use and really creative !
Love this app! 5/5
By Absolutely Beautiful!!
These devotionals are easy to read while being full of great gospel truths and wisdom. Yes, you have to pay to get most of the devotionals, but you'd pay $15 to get a different devotional from the store so $2 or $3 doesn't seem like that big of a deal to me :)
Invaluable Resource! 5/5
By "Never Letting Go" Review
This app is an invaluable resource for women who desire to grow in their love for God's Word. Providing rich insight to life-changing Scriptures, along with beautifully designed graphics and pictures to make integrating Scripture into your life easy and enjoyable, this app is a blessing to women all over the world! Love the She Reads Truth app!
Just use it for the Bible part 3/5
Devotions are $. I just use it
For the Bible.
What I find strange about this app is that when you download it, it is free but you have to pay for 80% of the plans. Showing people Jesus and the gospel who actually want to learn or other providing more in depth plans on scripture shouldn't cost $1.99 or $2.99, you just can't put a price on that. Furthermore this app and overall project should be a way of serving others, which you also can't put a price on. Just something for these ladies to think about.
Have to pay 1/5
By Elizabeth fino
You literally can't read anything unless you pay for each..
Just another hipster Christian scam. Makes you pay to read their devotional plans. "I want to spread Gods love to you but you're going to have to pay for it first" Ridiculous.
New update 1/5
The new update won't allow me to open the app. It opens for 2 seconds and then shuts down.
Disappointed :( 1/5
I can not accurately give an update on this app, but wanted to provide this information to ask that the app be changed. Recently, I attended a weekend womens retreat with my church, the speaker used the book behind her lessons. I was super excited about hearing this dialy devotional for women. I am a person with a visual impairment who uses an Iphone and VoiceOver to access the information on the phone. I have the ability to read almost any book I want by using Ibooks, Kindle or other ebook readers. I can surf facebook, surf the internet, check emails, and have tons of other apps on my iphone. But sadly I, as a person with a disability, who uses technology to function in daily life, can not access apps to feed my spirit and need to be in the Word. So, I please please ask that you make your app accessible/functional with VoiceOver for persons who can not see, have low vision, or who are growing older and can't see the screen any longer. Please make the app usable for me too. I am a person too, God loves me like he does you, all people. I would gladly rewrite the review/retract this one if the app is made accessible. Thank you for reading and considering my request.
Substituting Words 1/5
By Cherie Zack
In reading through the Bible via She Reads Thruth app, I was surprised to find the word "Unicorn" as a substitute for Oxen. My spirit was grieved by this. Unicorn has no place in the Bible. This is not a real animal and the Bible is based on Truth. I find it interesting that the title of the app and ministry is She Reads Truth! So disappointed. It makes me wonder what other words have been changed. Are there other compromises just waiting to be found? I've deleted the app from my phone.
By 6 pretty daughters
Disappointed that the devotions plans cost real money. I think I will delete and use the website instead.
Can't stop! So good! 5/5
Very good devotional app!
