Bug Fixes 4/5
Great app overall but recently the app has been closing out. Please fix the problem
Hmm...where is the original reader? 4/5
I must say I love this app! It really spearheads my devotion time with the Lord in the mornings. But ever since July and I want to say after the fourth of July holiday the original reader has not been reading. It’s unfortunate because I really really really appreciated how much I was able to connect with God through that original reader. I would be kinda down sometimes but after hearing a great word from the author of the day and the original reader reading it would lift my spirits instantly! Please consider and bring him back. He has a true gift.
New Update 2/5
By Sun Daisy
The latest update now keeps closes the app. Please fix!
I love reading these daily messages! But I do not like the new look to the app! It looks and feels strangely cold, making it seem so impersonal. Please bring back the beautiful "old look" that looked and felt so warm and inviting!
Useful feature to add 5/5
I’ve been reading Our Daily Bread since I was a kid. In recent years and to my delight, it’s an app. But like most apps, this requires a password. This is annoying especially when you have forgotten your password. All I want to do is read the daily passage, pray and move on with my day. So I’m going to use the online interface. I’m guessing the password is required because of the possible purchases from the sponsor could be compromised. I get it. However once I put in my password, I wish that I never have to do it again.
That is not the case. For some reason, I have to re-enter it. I’m trying to figure if there’s something I did.
Nonetheless in the time it took to create this first and last review, I could have figured out the password and enjoyed all the wonderful things I enjoy about the app itself. I love the night setting, the font adjustments and the passages. This app has been a convenient way for me to start my meditation and enjoy Bible study. I hope the truths are always rooted in the Bible. May those who speak be blessed and encouraged to continue God’s work. (Just imagine that other guy voiced ODB for how many days and years. Well done good and faithful servant!) A new voice each day is interesting.
App Begins to Open and automatically closes!!! 1/5
By Dissappointed MA
When I began to use the App today, it started to launch and then automatically closed. :(
Closes immediately after opening 1/5
By Rayna Raven
I downloaded this app and immediately after opening it, it closed. So, I deleted it and tried downloading it again and the same thing happened. Let me know when it gets fixed.
New Readers 3/5
Miss the male reader who clearly presented the Daily Bread messages.
The female who now does many of the readings is hard for me to understand as her words are slurred!
App Broken 3/5
I cannot use the app any longer. It hangs after opening. I uninstalled it and reinstalled it and it still does the same thing.
Daily read 5/5
By passing time away
Not sure why but this app won’t open in my iPhone any longer. I’ve deleted and downloaded several times. 😕
Is Daily Bread compliant with my Keto diet? 5/5
I have found it to be... the bite-sized scripture and thoughts to ponder are perfect for getting the day started.
Save pictures? 5/5
Hi. I love the app 😀, but how do I save any of the pictures? I have the ‘download images’ option on, but I can’t actually seem to save any of the images to my iPhone.
God and Jesus 5/5
By Saint Nathan Warner Purvis
That’s a lot
What happened? 4/5
Where is the male reader/speaker? His voice was so calm and soothing. He was like the Mr. Rogers or Bob Ross of scripture. This new person sounds like a valley girl, though I’m sure she’s a great person. It’s just just not the same experience anymore.
Different Daily Audible Speakers 5/5
I love reading and listening to Our Daily Word Nightly. Unfortunately, I have gotten very comfortable to listening to the same presenters daily. Lately I have listen to different speakers. Not only the word and the presentations are beautiful, but I have become very comfortable with the gentleman an young lady who have done it for years. Where are the.? Will they ever return. Their absence was so abrupt!
It’s very detailed, has different plans, even though I may not be going through same thing as the writers, I still feel as if I can relate to each daily word. It’s awesome, real cool.
The only thing that I feel weird about is the plans, when you click out of it and click right back in, it immediately changes it to the next day, I make mistakes, and click out and go home, and then it just switches.
I hope that can maybe be fixed?
Anyways love the app, God bless😊
By Shi shi kni
It’s such a wonderful devotion to start my morning, inspire my day, and help me to straighten out where I need to ask for intervention for personal growth. I just wish the pictures would change daily in my app like they do on the website. It’s probably just my old phone though.
By Me, Kay
I love the app and use it consistently. Only thing I don’t care for is the new piece that congratulations me on reading daily. Wish it were a setting button allowing a turn off.
Omit one thing please 5/5
Folks at ODB, please remove the feature of your app that insists on informing me I’ve read several days in a row, and pats me on the back then tells me to keep it up. I’m fairly certain this wasn’t there an update or two ago.
Think about it. I open up the ODB app on my phone with the intention of reading, exactly the purpose of the app. Then I see this annoying banner that states the obvious and apparently tries to ‘encourage’ me to do what I was going to do anyway.
It’s not encouraging, it’s annoying and distracting, not to mention very tedious and unnecessary. If y’all want to add additional and useful features to your app I’m down for it, this isn’t one of them.
Couldn't get it to work. 1/5
I loaded the app and tried using it, but none of the sections would populate with anything at all. It was nothing but blank unusable headings. The"Today" button would flash as I tapped it, with no effect, and the monthly archives would open a new page that interminably loaded nothing. Reboot didn't help.
There’s just one thing... 4/5
I enjoy listening to the daily readings, and appreciate learning how to pronounce certain names in the Bible, but the one downfall is that lately, he’s been starting over, at the beginning, even after I’ve closed out the app after he’s finished. I don’t know if others have had the same problem or not, but I thought you would want to be aware of it. That’s the only thing that is keeping me from giving it 5 stars. I had hoped it would have been resolved with the last upgrade, but perhaps it hadn’t been a problem for other app users.
Reading Plan 4/5
Love this app! Is it possible to offer a daily reading plan also?
No funciona bien 1/5
Hola podrían arreglar la falla de que abro la App y se cierra no puedo leer nada
Update is Unusable 1/5
The latest update needs to be fixed. The app crashes almost immediately after I open it and I’m not able to use it anymore. I got it to stay open for about 2 minutes tops total before it crashes again. Help, I miss my morning reading!
So so so so so so good 5/5
Easy access. So good. So clear. Audio and reading. Good for anyone. I’ve been so inspired and touched by the devotionals. Been reading them for years
Broke application 5/5
They need fix application
An excellent devotional 5/5
Thank you for sharing God’s Word. I continue to declare blessings upon your ministry. In JESUS’ name. :)
Too Big 2/5
I like the app but there's no reason for it to be 177MB. It's the 5th largest app on my phone, and I have tons off apps, including multiple social media apps. Gotta uninstall for more space.
The Our Daily Bread app is great! Easy to use and well laid out format. I’d like to make one suggestion: please add to your menu a link to a page that includes the pictures and bios of all of your authors. You occasionally offer this link at the end of one of your daily messages. It would be nice to have regular access to that information.
God is Good 5/5
Love this app. Awesome.
Please update for iPhone X 4/5
Daily Bread is a great ministry in which I’ve read since I was a teenager. The messages are practical and realistic. They have touch my heart daily.
Only bad thing is the that they haven’t updated to fit the specs of the iPhone X
Looks great! 5/5
This is a great looking app. I look forward to the continued growth of this product.
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.
Needs fixing 1/5
I download the app create my account...but it keep saying unable to log in....I have tried many times and still I am unable to read daily devotional.....if you are not fixing the app you need to remove it

I've been using the app for quite some time, now it crashes, I cannot even open the it. Please fix, it's part of my daily devotional.
Love Our Daily Bread but the app is terrible 1/5
App keeps crashing every time I open it
Crashes when you try to open it 1/5
Not sure what happened. This app worked fine for a while but now doesn't stay open to use. I've tried deleting and reinstalling several times. No dice. Disappointing.
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!
Crashes as soon as you open it 3/5
