Don't update!!! Welcome screen is annoying!!! 1/5
This app used to be nice and simple. The 'welcome screen' gets very annoying VERY quickly!
Sometimes translations are off 3/5
I have noticed on several occasions the scriptures are totally off in this app for instance psalm 66:3 reads "how terrible" is he but should read "how awesome"????
Welcome screen toggle 4/5
I foolishly updated to the current version on my phone. The welcome screen and verse of the day are unneeded. The reason I use this app is because it didn't have those fluff features. It is a place to meet with God in His word, not some other person's interpretations and silly unbiblical illustrations.
Please provide a toggle in the preferences to switch off the home screen.
Thank you for seriously considering this request.
Please add an option to turn off the welcome screen. Thank you for your time.

This is a great King James Bible app! I enjoy this Bible app very much.
7.10.6 Review: Back to 5-Stars! 5/5
Thank you for providing settings to remove the painfully annoying Welcome screen. Please don't bloat this great bible app with anymore unwanted/unnecessary features. Programmers need to know when they have a great app and leave it alone.
I submitted a service request to Tecarta to provide a setting to disable the annoying and unwanted "Welcome" screen that was forced upon users in version 7.10.4. The help desk emailed me back and said they would be providing a setting to remove this unwanted annoyance within 2 weeks. Unfortunately the 7.10.5 release did not address this issue.
Previous review by Jadespace said it all. This was a great app until this latest update, which forces the user to endure a "Welcome" screen with advertisements on start up, which cannot be disabled in the settings. Please add a setting to turn off this painful annoyance. Once an app is paid for, the user should not be subjected to further ads. Also, I'd like to see the Holman Study Bible made available for the actual Holman Bible Translation, instead of just the KJV. Hopefully this update trend doesn't portend the end of a another great bible app. :-(
Unwelcome Welcome Screen 1/5
By Unspecified User
Always really enjoyed this app because it was simple and straightforward, until the Welcome Screen with Verse of the Day, ads, and unwanted messages. You can't disable the Welcome Screen in the setting. The app has been ruined by the ads and the pop up.
Please let us remove the welcome screen! 5/5
Update: I was happy to see that this app now has an option to turn off the splash screen when you open it. It has long been my favorite Bible app for teaching and preaching, I love the bookmark features and the ease of use. Excellent app…
Previous comment: I had posted a glowing 5 star review on this app before, but the new welcome screen with adds attached is a terrible idea. I paid for the app and several add ons and I want the option to remove the welcome screen. I use this app for teaching and do not want to have to encounter it every time I open my Bible.
Everything I Need 5/5
By T. Williamson
This app is all I need to get the word and I get it while off line. It's easy to navigate with the ability to change the font sizes etc.
Search options? 2/5
By Su Servido especial
Now we have more miry junk added to what was a simple, nice Bible app. App was great, now just average or less than. Sorry, had to say it. ... Funny, we buy programs to get rid of popups. You like to add them. Keep it simple. That is why so many people have downloaded this app in the past. Just saying...
Nice app but... 3/5
Nice app but the welcome screen is very annoying. I wish there was a way to disable the welcome screen from popping up every time you open the app.
Don't download until it's fixed 1/5
What was once my favorite Bible app due to it's simplicity and ease of use has now become an utter cash-grab. Adding a welcome screen that you can't turn off was a bad choice, and anti-consumer; the subtle ads on it really annoy me as a faithful, long time user. Your app has become clunky and over saturated; please revert back to how it was before the new features were added with the 7.10.4 update, and please add in an option to turn off the welcome screen.
Not the best 2/5

I don't like how they ask for money for other versions besides the KJV
BEST BIBLE APP 5/5
BEST BIBLE APP KJV!
Welcome screen 1/5
I am not ever updating until the 'welcome' screen is removed. The whole reason I got this app is because it didn't have a stupid welcome screen like all the other apps. I want something that opens right to where I was reading.
Good app with one annoyance 3/5
This is the primary Bible app that I use, and I have downloaded several Bible versions. However, an annoying welcome screen pops up frequently without an obvious way to disable it.
It used to be a fine app until the annoying welcome screen appeared. While reading their site on how to dissable that annoyance I read the privacy statement. I will be deleting the app as I do not need The Holy Bible tracking me, the good Lord already does that in a benavolent way.
Great app. 4/5
By Left Overs
I really like this app. Except I wish it had a timer on it. So when your listening to the audio portion of the book, you can set the timer to turn it off when needed. I listen to the Bible being read to me while at work or even when I'm in bed, relaxing enough to go to sleep. Having a timer would help a lot.
Just the Bible no more 2/5
I switched to the Tecarta Bible app from YouVersion because the latter became increasingly bloated with "features" that distracted from the Bible itself. Sadly, the latest version of the Tecarta Bible app seems to have begun a similar transformation. There is now a "welcome" screen when starting the app that includes advertising from Tecarta and that must be manually dismissed. I expect this is the beginning of the end for me and Tecarta, despite my making purchases within the app. I just want to read the Bible at dawn, not be engage in social media, not watch videos, not be "welcomed" with a Bible verse and some advertising. I think it may be time to return to the analog world. I recommend The Books of the Bible from Zondervan.
change in operation 4/5
Still my 'go to' English Bible App when Greek or Hebrew texts are not needed.
However, the latest version with 'Welcome Screen' is slightly inconvenient. Screen display on launch. Doesn't seem to want to turn off. Last 'tab' contents displayed on previous shutdown of App no longer displays on startup. After dismissing the unwelcome (from this reviewers perspective) 'Welcome Screen', instead of the 'Recently Used' tab being displayed (as it was when the App was last shutdow), the 'Bible Translations' tab is consistently displayed. It is slightly inconvenient to need to tap to dismiss the unwelcome 'Welcome Screen' and then tap to once again display the last used tab (for me, it is virtually always the 'Recently Used' tab). What is wrong with adding another user configurable option similar to the 'Reminder to Read' option? Leave it up to the user to decide whether or not to display the 'Welcome Screen'. Also, return the default tab to the last displayed (active) tab when the App was shutdown (unless y'all are simply tryin' to sell another Bible translation??? don't know). User 'configurability' is a major contributing factor for 'happy' users. Also, allow user to increase/decrease the number of recently used items. It would also be nice to allow user to once again open commentaries (or even Study Bibles this time around) in the parallel translation column—there's that user configurability matter once again!!). Oh well, y'all get the idea i am sure. Great app, nonetheless.
Great app! 5/5
Just downloaded and is meeting my needs fine.
THANKFUL FOR THE WORD OF GOD!!! 5/5
Blessings to the creators of this app in order for people to have access to the Living Breathing Word of GOD! It's a Blessing to have quick reference to the Word in studying and sharing. I love my Bible to hold in my hand and now also for the Word on my phone. Prayers for people to come to know the LORD and all who do to draw closer to Him day in and day out!
Great App! 5/5
I really love this Bible app.
I recently discovered the audio Bible- there are several choices for how to have it read- I like the dramatic one- it's wonderful to be able to work around the house while listening to The Word.
Someone else mentioned that we would like to have a way to put key words in a search box to find a certain verse- and I agree that this would be nice to have.
Wonderful Bible App 5/5

Always Satisfied 5/5
By Fashion P
I have been using the Tecarta app for years. I am always satisfied. It has made my studying and preparing for sermons so much easier. I always recommend it to others. Thanks to all who make it happen! God Bless!
This is my favorite Bible app, very simple to use, and let's you focus one what is important: the word.
The highlighting and underlining options in this app are brilliant, and the controls for it are intuitive, and in my opinion better than those in some of the other apps out there. The ability to tap and send a verse(s) via a text message to anyone is brilliant!
Thanks for this app!
Good app 3/5
I will give you 5 stars when you get an app for Windows PC. I would love to have it downloaded on my pc and be able to use it without Internet.

Great app 5/5
My go-to reference…
Tecarta Bible app 5/5
I love this app the best! It's easier to navigate and find your notes in this app than any others that I have tried. The thing I like the best is the way you can change the color of the letters to highlight rather than having a whole line blocked out which can make reading more difficult. I like to use the black background and changing the colors of the words make the words much easier to read and are gentle on the eyes.
I was having some difficulty with some of the functions in the app, but the it is resolved thanks to Tecarta's Help Desk.
I love it so much fun 5/5
I love this app

It's pretty good. 4/5
By Stephen the Zealot
There's basically no issues with it. Perhaps there's a few ads here and there bit, other than that, nothing I can think of. It's pretty much a go-to bible app with all the needed, convenient and helpful features.
Great free app 5/5

I use this as my phone bible no charge and easy to use
HB214 - Still My Favorite App!!! 5/5
Now on version 7.10.3 and is still my top favorite app right along with Charles Spurgeon's "Morning and Evening". Please keep it updated! 👍👍
Wonderful Bible app 4/5
By Melanie in Miami
I enjoy the features of being able to leave notes next to verses and being able to highlight my favorite key verses. App needs some tweaking:
The search for chapter and verse should each be in groups of 5 for quicker location of verses.
There should be a way to advance within a book or chapter without having to start at the beginning for a search. In other words, if I am reading Revelation 14:8, I should be able to easily jump to Revelation 17:5, but instead I have to first select the book of Revelation and then chapter and verse. I would like it to assume I want the same book, then I would only have to enter a new chapter and verse.
Wish I could copy two consecutive verses that appear on two separate pages all at one time. Instead, I have to copy and paste each one separately.
I bought the Strong's Concordance but have never been able to access it. I would appreciate some technical assistance.
Need more variety of colors to highlight text such as purple and orange.
Some of my marginal notes are hidden under the tools and pencil tabs. It would be better if the marginal notes were on the left side instead of the right side.
It would be very useful to be able to have a search engine to find a verse by typing a few key words that I remember and then have a box appear with verse suggestions that match the search criteria.
Wonderful tool 5/5
Can't get a better Bible study app than this. I like the way the notebook is set up,the best that I've used. Thanks guys.
New Updates 1/5
I like the app, but I recently tried to listen to the bible in airplane mode. I am disappointed that wifi has to be used for this feature now.
Great App 4/5
Could be a little more user friendly in navigating through.
Love it, but... 5/5
UPDATE Oct 15, 2016:
Still needs a lot more highlight colors.
Replaced my other four digital bibles.
Wish it had a lot more highlights though, 4 is not enough for different categories.
Review update 5/5
In my initial review I mentioned a couple functions I would like to see, then found in the online help that 2 of the 4 items (bookmarks and history tracking) are already included. I love it. Now if only I could scroll to the previous chapter which would allow me to see the last verses instead of having to navigate to them.
I have enjoyed using KJV for over two years and I have found it to be one of the best available. I really appreciate not having to deal with ads. The only problem I can't seem to get pass since one of the latest updates is that I now have to set the volume, and the first chapter when before I didn't have to set the chapter if I wanted "1". A small problem but can be irritating if it wasn't necessary before.

I love this bible app you don't need wifi to access it and you can highlight and mark your favorite verses. I highly recommend it.
Thank You for no ads, no sales, no promos. Sharing the Scriptures in a most straightforward and readable format. The best. I feel most fortunate for finding this app❤️
