Great app! 5/5
Thanks to those which have made this app come to life, and for free. I hope that all of the still suffering alcoholics out there download this, and apply it to every aspect of their life.
Easy to use 3/5
By Marie in WV
One thing that would be awesome is if the app didn’t go back to the top of the chapter when the screen times out. Makes it hard to do a writing assignment.
Both Platforms 5/5
As your life improves by working the steps you’ll want to switch from android to iphone and yes! This app is available on both platforms so it will go with you in your recovery journey - a lot of apps don’t crossover - this one does! #iphoneflex #weirdflexbutok
Thank you for your AMAZING app. So easy to use and read...🙏😊
Helpful + Handy 5/5
I love having this App available when I need it . It saves me space in my purse and backpack and keeps me connected to Prayers and answers to our Big Book. Thank you kindly!!!
Just right 5/5
It is what it says it is and more. Love the prayers link.
Keep coming back 5/5
This app has done wonders for my recovery. Having quick access to the AA text and prayers throughout the day has strengthened my program and kept me from getting caught up in my thinking and self-will.
By hope trust love
I’m sober 5years 7months 25days! Thank you AA. I don’t just read the big book, I study it. I read and ask myself questions about how I relate to each sentence, just like I was taught, when I was in treatment. So many times, the words in this book, have got the wheels in my head turning in the right direction, that I was able to keep myself from doing something stupid. And thus, staying out of situations, that would lead to relapse. USE THIS APP. Live Aloha
I gave this app four stars simply because it doesn’t have the long version of the twelve steps and twelve traditions with it. That would be very handy along with the big book other than that it is a great app.
Attitude of gratitude 5/5
I am so grateful for this app. It is easy to navigate and has lots of helpful information and good references to the aa literature. I use it several times a day and am never disappointed. I highly recommend for any one new or returning to aa that is seeking a resource to help them grow in experience, strength, and hope.

I really appreciate this app & the folks I get to use it with. I thank the God of my understanding who gave me this disease. He is all powerful & chose this disease for me - wow, thank you HP!
It could have been terminal cancer, but in your wisdom, you gave me terminal alcoholism AND a prescription for living (medicine): help others. Simple, effective and not easy. God loves me too much to make is easy & I’m grateful for that & this app, which contains the message of hope, so I have it with me at all times.
Wonderful tool at my fingertips! 5/5
Thank you for sharing this app. It’s so handily, at my fingertips when I need it. And I do NEED it!!!
One day at a time !! 5/5
By sober in ack
I ❤️this app. It’s so easy to use. The layout is great -i go straight to the prayers first thing in the am n start my day off! I think it’s the most friendly to use big book app out there !
Handy to go tool 4/5
I love being able to carry the messages of this book with me wherever I go. However there are a lot of stories missing that I would love to have access to!
I’d give IT more stars 4/5
I would give this app 5 stars if, I had full access•
It saves my Soul 🌞 when needed for sure 💯
Do The Next Right Thing 5/5
I was frustrated because many Recovery Apps have a cost or in-app purchases.
While this app doesn’t have as many “bells & whistles”- it does have exactly what I needed: a copy of the big book, personal stories, and prayers.
For anyone looking for an accessible way to read recovery on their device- I highly recommend this app.
One thing wrong with this app 3/5
The app does not go back to the page last read. I either have to write down what page I was on or have to remember. Drives me crazy
Won’t hold your place 4/5
The app content, obviously, is great. My only complaint is that if my phone goes to sleep or I click it off and then back on while I’m reading, it doesn’t stay on the page I was on, but automatically defaults to the table of contents. That’s frustrating, but it’s a great read:)
Doesn’t work anymore 2/5
I used to love this app. It was great. Now it never works on my iPhone. I’ve deleted it and downloaded it again and again and it just doesn’t load when I open the app. Could you please fix this so that I can have the big book with me at all times? Thank you!
Not worth it. 1/5
Speaker tapes are of low audio quality. Big Book doesn’t save your current reading page after you close the app. Big Book is not 4th Edition. Meeting locator just refers you to numerous websites that have meetings listed. You can get good quality speaker tapes from various podcasts for free. You can buy 4th edition Big Book on kindle for price of this app. Download Meeting Guide app for free. This app is not worth your money.
The Big Book 5/5
If you are curious, skeptical, or just plain old in trouble, this read is simple and easy. Some of the information is eye- opening, but it is pertinent despite the books age. The original text is a mere 164 pages, but it packs an entire new way of thinking and living into the package. The remaining stories of individual AA members are poignant. You may find some affinity among them, and a doorway to a new life!
Great App 5/5
By Ruthie Begonia
I am new to AA so using all the tools I can and this is great!
Perfect Companion 5/5
Having been around for many 24 hours, the technology provided today for everyone is wonderful. This app offers many features that can help support the alcoholic: of course nothing replaces a meeting and personal contact. Thank you
Awesome App! 5/5
By JJ McG
I have a screenshot of this app saved in my AA note file. I text it to new Sponcee’s, or family members of people struggling with addiction.
Good on the go app 4/5
Overall I'm satisfied with this app. I recommend it to others that want to have a Big Book handy without carrying around the actual hard cover copy.
A free app of the big book of AA
How could I complain?
I can’t... quite simply. I am thankful 😊
By Good recovery app
Great app for people in recovery!
I love the app. Just wish I could go straight to a page, and not have to scroll through the chapter.
God sent! 5/5
I love this app. When I don’t have my big book. I always have my phone.
Best BB App Ever 5/5
Easy to search for a step, topic, and prayer! Best app I’ve used for the BB!
By Tom "Mixin" Mac
I hate that when the app. Or screen closes and you reopen it it doesn’t go back to the page you were on but opens back up to the beginning choices. i.e. chapters, personal stories, prayers etc. this is very annoying
Easy does it 5/5
By SD Easy
Excellent! Like having Big Book with me! Sobriety calculator is so easy to use!
By Sweet girl 85
This is the very best app because I don’t or can’t always have My Bigbook with Me and this app really helps Me out in those times... so thanks so very Much and I 150% recommend this app if your in AA as I am Myself....
Not as good as free web based AA MATERIAL 3/5
By J - it's me
Needs An Update 2/5
The app crashes on the startup screen. It’s been doing this since the last update. Hence the 2 star rating. Other than that is a really useful app. Hope this gets fixed in the next update then it would be a 5 star rating.
Love it! 5/5
It’s the only BB app I’ve found that has the page numbers. The extras are great too!
So far so good. I’m really loving this app. 5/5
I’ve had this app for several months but am just now giving it a try. I like its simplicity and it’s thoroughness. Everything I need to stay on track.
Big book 5/5
I love this app. It has everything I need to keep me on track. I love reading the prayers in the morning and at night. Thanks
FREE and helpful. 5/5
The big book is so crucial to recovery. I can only taink the creators of this app for making it available for free. Of course, there are things that I would like better, like the ability to bookmark pages. But I have found that not been able to bookmark pages means that I pay closer attention to what I’m reading. So I’m trying to find the positive in everything.
Really like being able to have it everywhere I go. 5/5
Having the big book on my phone is really nice.
It’s 90% Great 4/5
It’s really convenient to have this app with you wherever you go. That being said, almost every page has a grammatical error. i.e. no spaces, no periods, commas where they shouldn’t be, etc.
Great little app 5/5
I just have the free version, I try to carry my big book everywhere with me. Most important thing I have found on the app has been the prayers. Really has been helping me align myself on which side of the street I want to travel. Highly recommend!
App still only opens to a blank screen 😕 Please update or issue refund.
So good 5/5
It really is
It’s Free!!! 5/5
This app is so user friendly and it’s free!! It’s right at my fingertips when I need help or just want to read a story to remind myself why I actually have this app on my phone. Great tool and resource. Thank you.
Excellent and helpful 5/5
Thank you for making this available. I would love to also have the forewards to the third and fourth editions. Otherwise, just thank you.
The old stories are here! 5/5
It’s the only app of the big book I’ve found that has the first edition stories in it and some of the AA pioneers had something to say believe me.
Old version of the Big Book
