Blank Index - app unusable 1/5
Index is blank even after re-installing and restarting.
Solved: Does not work with new iOS update when in dark mode. Switched to light, and it’s all readable again!
I used to love this app but now... 2/5
This app worked fine for me until I upgraded my iPad (gen 5) to the largest system software (iOS 13.1.3). Now the text is fine, but the index is all but useless; as a result, I can no longer easily navigate from one book or chapter to another. All the lines in the index are blank. When I tap on one line in the index, the book name or chapter number appears, but only one book or chapter number at a time. So of course if you tap on a line, you go to the hidden book or chapter you selected - whether it’s the one you wanted or not. And yes, the app was updated to the version that’s supposed to be updated for the new iOS. And deleting the app and reinstalling it doesn’t help.
Today’s readings broken in 13.1 iOS 5/5
Please get that fixed
This really makes the app not so helpful
IOS 13 update makes app crash 1/5
I can’t access my highlights of scriptures please update
Sunday Readings 2/5
I used this app to quickly find the Sunday readings and share. The latest update deleted that option , only giving me the first reading and the Responsorial. What a disappointment. I would like the option of choosing what want to see.
Worst Bible App 1/5
I have 4 Bibles on my phone. 3 are excellent and this one is terrible to navigate. The others were free and I paid for this worthless app!!!!!! Don’t waste your money.!!!! There are too many really good Catholic Bible Apps out there. I wouldn’t give this app one star. I have never made a complaint about any purchase from Amazon or anywhere else so you know this has to be pretty bad!!
NAB re 4/5
By Tisha Ray
I like this app but what became of the audio capability? It seems that at one time I had used it.
Hard to use 1/5
By Happy in Vancouver
Hard to use, navigate. Unable to delete highlights. Disappointed.
The read in a year has a bug 3/5
this is my favorite translation of the Catholic Bible. And I do enjoy this book. However, I like to use the read a Bible in a year feature which is very nice with the exception that it has the New Testament chapter 2 or three times at least in each daily reading. I noticed that when I was reading the same thing every day. And so I checked it out and sure enough the New Testament chapter was inserted into at least two different days. There may be a reason for that but I don’t know what it would be.
In general, I like the way the book is laid out. There is no way that I can see however, to provide feedback or to contact the developer. I tried to contact the developer by his website and got no reply.
It would be nice, to make an audio version of this book as well.
Aside from these issues, I do recommend the purchase of this app.
Useful, suggestions for improvement 3/5
By tech for teaching
We use this in a high school. Two requests for improvement so that we can continue to use it/not switch to another app:
1) it is not currently compatible with split screen view on the iPad.
2) you are not able to highlight footnotes.
Can’t navigate 1/5
No way to find the table of contents.
New update 3/5
The new update doesn’t highlight with a color like before making it difficult to know what the reading is for the day
Favorite mobile bible 5/5
By Spreadsheet review
This is my favorite bible app. Now that the psalms from the daily readings are back I'll be using this daily. I'm a huge fan of seeing the daily readings within the context of the rest of the text.
Love the app 5/5
Easy to navigate and find scriptures for study. Keeps your favorite quotes handy. Has a read the Bible in a year function but I haven’t been able to discover how it works.
The Best Bible App I have Seen: Catholic NAB 5/5
I have used this app for several years - it is outstanding. Navigating to to any desired Book, Chapter, and Verse is a breeze. Every footnote and cross reference is hot-linked, which makes study so easy. And the back and forward buttons really simply returning to your desired location.
I repent 1/5
By Joe Blastoff
I repent having bought this Bible. It doesn't have anyway to find the books of the Bible.
Search does nothing. Only usefulness I see is getting the daily readings
Hard to use 1/5
By Auto confession
Very hard to use if you want to use it like a written bible. Hard to find where bible books are listed. It's fine if you want to just have a daily bible verse automatically pop up each day. Needs to be easier to use
Please improve 4/5
Would be very nice to have a night view alternative. Thanks.
Psalms update 2/5
What has happened to the 2017 Psalms ??
This keeps up will need to find a new bible app.
Only want to take one document or pad to bible study, church! Cannot count on the daily readings being correct without a second source. REALLY REALLY NEEEDS AN UPDATE FOR 2017.
The set up of this one year Bible is OK, but it has a serious flaw. The new testament readings often repeat themselves. For example, I'll read some verses for Matthew on a particular day, the next days reading will have the same verses for Matthew. I have not seen that on the old testament readings or the Psalms, but it has happened a few times on Matthew. I hope they would correct this soon.
Dependable, Easy and Officially Catholic 4/5
By Old Palm OS Fan
I've been using this app daily for about 5 years. It's the translation approved by the US Bishops with helpful foot notes. Very easy to navigate, highlight and copy and share verses. I really like how it shows the daily readings so I can easily read the previous and following verses to get context.
Great app 5/5
I love the app. I read the Bible using its feature Read the Bible in a year. The app is easy to use, intuitive, runs smoothly.
I must say that when the app was broken, the developer was extremely responsive and when alerted to the issue, he worked on it right away, and then even emailed me telling me that the fix was ready. I just wish I, or someone else emailed him earlier, I didn't think of it! I saw a couple of negative reviews instead. Working with technology myself I know first hand that things happen and you might not be aware of them.
All fixed again 4/5
Now that the bug in read in a year was repaired, this does almost everything I would want
Bible in a year is broken 1/5
By RH 617
Bible in a year is broken. Old Testament will not advance past Genesis 1. HELP!!
The Gospel reading does not agree with the correct Sunday reading 2/5
Today 2/12/2017 should be Matt 5 17-37. APP shows Mrk 5:17-37. Somethings wrong. Please correct program/APP.
What happened to the daily Psalms? 4/5
Please reinstate the daily Psalms!
This is a fantastic app! My older eyes find it a joy to read on my iPad versus my fine print hard copy. The table of contents is very quick and easy to use and the forward / backward page buttons are awesome. With this functionality you can always return to your original reading spot as you jump around to various sections in the Bible.
Daily readings 4/5
The Psalms still aren't showing up on my iPhone 7. Is there a fix for this yet?
I am a Catholic and remember the maps from my Bible. Care to add maps to this online version?
By Gumbo 49
How about bookmarks to be able to save my place from day to day. Also, a table of contents of sorts to quickly reference the books of the Bible.
Readings are now Okay 3/5
Hello, I'm a daily reader. For many months now the readings are repetitive between Luke and John. I am wondering if you are Okay Brother.
Search is usable now 5/5
Thanks for changing the layout of the search results!
Great app 5/5
Great app. Thank to developer
Look at Help before you start! 4/5
Good but not intuitive so go to Help first.
Difficult to use 1/5
By Drew Fitzgerald
I've tried to use this app to search specific books of the bible and the search tool is non-functioning. Please update your app so it works and the bible can be accessed.
The readings have been one day behind every day since Dec 31. Can we get it updated?
Date errors 5/5
By Carl again
Dear coder, having same problem as Jimbo of the 1-1-16. Today is 1-3-16 and the today reading states 1-2-16. The< showed "back" , then 12-30-16 date shows.
Daily readings Keep going back to 13/30 & cannot advance the date. Love the ap but is not good now.
By Sam EGV
Using the read Bible in a year stopped working on day 351, until then there were only some minor issues. Sent an email to the developer but there has been no reply.
Errors found 2/5
Found large errors in wording from same paperback version I have. Otherwise it is okay, just have to pay attention while reading.
Fine until Day 83 3/5
Using Bible in a Year feature. Crashes at day 351. Uninstalled and reinstalled to no avail. Was great until then. Can't find a solution.
Excellent app 5/5
This is an excellent app that works well and really provides a lot of advantages over reading a hardcopy. The notes and references have allowed me to study the Bible in much greater depth than I have before. Also, with fairly regular updates, the app has improved substantially since I got it and continues to get new features.
I got it now! 5/5
I clicked on the help button and it explained how to navigate through the bible. Thanks.
Not working :( 5/5
I love this app. But suddenly!!! It's not working.
The app makes it very easy to look up chapter and verse. I am new to bible study, and I have my phone in my hand with this app open all the time. It is easy to read, highlight, and take notes. Well worth the price.
Incorrect Gospel Readings 4/5
For (at least) the last two days, the incorrect Gospel readings have been identified in Daily Readings. We should be reading from Matthew's gospel, not from Mark's gospel.
By far my favorite app 5/5
I use this app on the daily! I'm always forgetting exactly where a verse is and this app's word/phrase search feature makes it easy to find what I'm liking for. Plus, it allows me to bookmark and highlight favorite verses and it keeps track of my viewing history. Well worth the money!
Daily readings 3/5
I am trying to use this app to read the bible in a year....however, the book of Matthew keeps repeating chapters every other day. For example, chapter 7 will appear 2 days in a row. Not sure if this is suppose to happen or if it is a bug.
