I downloaded this app thinking it would be an addition to my devotional time only to realize you have to pay for every devotional you want. I’ll stick to the YouVersion Bible app where every thing is free for those you need God’s word. I deleted app for this reason.
Used to love this app. 3/5
Love She Reads Truth, but NOT a fan of the app update. I like the old layout better, but aside from the structure and look of it, it needs some fixes. First, it removes your old account, but is nothing about it when you reopen the app. It does say that if you set up your account it will sync your highlights and notes, but other than that does not say anything about being required to create a NEW account.
I spent a ridiculous amount of time trying to log in, and then trying to reset my password, and then searching my email inbox to try to figure out why it said there was no account under that email before finally emailing them about it.
Once I figured out I had to set up a new account, I did, and it imported a random photo from my phone album as my profile pic and there is no option to change it.
I synced my in-app purchases once I created the new account and am missing some.
New doesn't mean better.
A true blessed and enriching app! 5/5
About time I’ve found a sincere and biblical app and it’s so clean and crisp from page to page. I’m just getting started and can’t wait to join you sisters! And shopping too :)
Don’t bother 1/5
Why pay for something that you can get for free? I downloaded the app to begin my first study with She Reads Truth only to find out that after purchasing the book, the app to read the daily readings is an additional fee. From the SRT team “they are a separate purchase... because the app is costly to update and maintain”. After spending 20 minutes trying to figure out what is different between the app and website, I found the online reading is exactly the same and it’s free. After already purchasing a book, which is not cheap, you’d think they’d give you free access to the app. Why would anyone pay for access here when the exact same info is available for free on their website? I won’t be purchasing another study with a company who nickel and dimes their customers in the name of a Christian Bible Study.
My go-to devotional 5/5
This is a great resource! I’ve been using the SRT Bible away from home, and recently found myself looking for an online study. After trying a few other apps I picked up one in SRT and I’m so happy to find this resource. Some of the best teaching online, Scripture-focused and easy to use wherever you are.
Love it but liked the version more 5/5
By App reviews 99
So I absolutely love this app and the light of God that it shows. I also love the screen savers but I can’t find them anymore sooo if you took them away pls bring them back. Also, I don’t think that you should make us pay money for the plans as they are an opportunity to help our relationship with the Lord. I get that you have to have a way to make the money back that you are putting in, but still. I never pay money for apps personally bc there are better things to spend it on so I can never use any of the plans. There are plenty of other apps I will probably use instead because it costs money. PLEASE CHANGE
Beautiful app, life-changing devotionals! 5/5
I am so thankful for She Reads Truth! Because of this ministry, I have been learning many biblical truths and drawing closer to God daily. As a busy mom, I love that I can take a moment to read the bible and SRT devotionals right within the app, wherever I am! I haven’t had any issues whatsoever. Thank you for what you do! May the Lord continue to prosper and increase this ministry 🙌🏾
Doesn’t even work 1/5
I have been using the app for a while now. And as of recently the app will not load a bible study. Which kinda defeats the point of the app
Even after deleting and re downloading it still doesn’t work.
Needs Overhaul 2/5
I rarely write reviews. But I loved this app and pray its gets better. The last major update did NOT help. I found it unnecessarily hard to use. Everything became difficult, navigation, saving scriptures, I mean everything. I’ve now deleted the app and just follow online. But I’m writing this review in hopes that the developers will take a good look at this and make the necessary changes. I really would love to use this app.
Cannot purchase within the app 2/5
The new update doesn’t allow in app purchases?
A lot of the reviews are from users who had the app before it updated. I’ve had it for about a week now(apparently since it updated again per the version section) and I LOVE everything about it. I actually signed up for their (super cheap) subscription plan to have access to all the plans. It’s perfect for me. It’s got a touch of femininity to it which I prefer. I enjoy having reading plans that are geared towards women. And don’t don’t worry! They have your boyfriends, husbands, dads, brothers, etc covered with a he reads truth app! My husband just started using it himself. Don’t let the other reviews scare you off, this app is wonderful!
Love the content but website is always down 3/5
This is such a wonderful app and the content is really amazing. It has blessed me so many times and I love the wisdom and insight of all the riders. My only complaint is that I have gone to use it countless times and the website is down and not working. It’s gotten to the point where it’s happened so many times that I’ve gotten away from using it sadly.
New app is way too slow 2/5
I love these Bible studies so much! But the app is so slow now it is almost unusable. I will click on the reading plan and it takes several minutes to open. Some nights I click and click and it never opens. I love SRT but app needs help to simplify and speed it up.
Great App that has gotten me in the Word daily! 5/5
I found this app several months ago through a friend and have done 5-6 studies at this point. As a working mom of a toddler and infant it has been difficult to find a new rhythm that allows for time with the Lord daily since “quiet time” just isn’t a possibility anymore. This great resource gives a scripture reading, usually both OT and NT passages, and a brief devo and takes 5-10 minutes daily. Its helped me get back into the Word of God (almost) daily during this busy season. I listened to a podcast on Risen Motherhood where the creators of SRT were interviewed and I loved their heart to provide a platform to get women in the Word of God daily- it had done just that for me!
I like SRT, the study books are amazing! This app however leaves much to be desired. It will not let me login to my account, and it never sends an email to reset a password..
Liked the original version 2/5
This app is really amazing I’ve used it for years but the new update has made things more confusing. Also they took away all of the wallpapers that they used to have. I loved those wallpapers and being able to choose a new one every so often.
“Mark as read” swipe is gone 3/5
I use this app for my daily bible reading since I see what the passages are and then read them in my own Bible. I liked the swipe feature to mark as read and it was removed in the most recent update. Please bring it back.
Bugs need fixing 4/5
I love this app, it has really helped me stay on track with my bible study, but some bugs need to be fixed. The main issue I’m having is the app crashing when I try to change the version of the Bible from ESV to MSG and it’s really annoying! I have spent money on this app and I would appreciate if it worked properly. Please fix this.
Great Product & Mission, open to feedback 5/5
I’ve used the SRT app for several years now & recommend it often! The devotional plans are well put together and have a variety of content focuses. I adore the mission - women in the word every day. And also recommend the male version for couples. I have just recently updated my review, a few months back here was an update that I didn’t love & it seemed many others agreed... the SRT team went to work fixing the things that weren’t working. I don’t need a Perfect anything, but I am a big fan of a company that listens to feedback! Well done.
Can’t even log in 1/5
I have tried my login over and over. I’ve tried every combination I can think of. Doesn’t work. What works on the internet doesn’t work in the app. I’ve tried to reset. That doesn’t do anything. You click “reset” and nothing happens. What do I do???!
Problems with Bible in a Year Plan 2/5
I’m trying to check off that I have read the daily reading for this plan, but each time I try to click “read”, it closes the app completely.
I see some improvements in the app, but please check this too!
This update... 2/5
I’m so sad! I love SRT but this new update is so difficult to use. I keep trying to give it a chance and get used to change, but I always give up, frustrated, after a few minutes. I now just use the ESV Bible app on my phone, instead, and have missed out on the studies, reading plans, and lock screens I used to love. A first-world problem for sure, but still a bummer.
HELP. MY APP IS NOT WORKING. I LOVE THIS APP ANS I WANT IT TO WORK BUT EVERY TIME I TRY IT SAYS “NETWORK ERROR PROCEEDING.” PLEASE FIX THIS ISSUE.
Can’t open app 1/5
By Silly Jilly me
Since the latest update I can’t open the app. I click on it, and it takes me directly back to my home screen. Can’t you just go back to the original version.
What happened ? 3/5
The new update erased the side by side translations . Please bring this back , out side of the the app is awesome
Nice to look at, lost functionality 3/5
This is the first review I’ve ever written and it’s because I feel so strongly about the potential of this app. Sure, the SRT community is still thriving one, allowing members to discuss scripture and reflections, but the functionality seemed to have been sacrificed for aesthetics. Before, I could highlight and take notes right in the app. I could go back and reference my notes easily. Now, I can’t even highlight or bookmark things that stand out to me. Without this function, SRT lost most of its appeal. It’s hard to participate in a discussion about the text if I can’t annotate as a I read. I really enjoyed the app before and I hate to let it go.
Love the app 4/5
I love this app. The one thing I would add is being able to highlight from the study plans instead of switching back and forth to highlight.
I do not like the new app 1/5
I love She Reads Truth and have had the app and plans for 3 years now. I am very disappointed with the app overhaul and update. It is very difficult to use the app. It’s constantly buggy. It never has my previous day’s reading correct. I really liked in the old app that there was a place to jump straight to the current day’s reading. If there’s a way to do that from the home page of the app, it’s not obvious to me. I also hate that my plans are listed in alphabetical order instead of most recently opened. That’s not helpful. At least give me an easy way to toggle between views so I can use the one most helpful to me. I also cannot stand that now, after I click “read” after reading the scripture passage, it doesn’t stay marked “read.” If I go back to the verses after looking at the devo, it will unmark the reading as read for me. That’s so frustrating. Why was so much functionality removed and changed from the old app? What is the reason for it?
Again. I love the content of SRT. I love the studies. I love the aesthetic (though not so much of this new app—it’s too harsh for me—but if that’s what you want then it’s fine). It’s very confusing to me why the app was changed so much, taking away good functionality and maneuvering.
Love the app when it works 2/5
I love this app. But for the past two weeks I can even open it. It starts to load and then just closes out. And I pay for the subscription. Not sure if I’ll continue to use it if I have to keep paying for something I can’t use.
Great product- Horrible update 2/5
I love SRT. There was a time when I would use it daily. But sadly, that just isn’t the case anymore.
First: let me say that I completely understand the need for changes and updates to an app. That’s totally fine. I think it is perfectly okay to change the look and feel of an app if it works better for functionality or for the ease of the user. Sure, it takes a bit to get used to a new layout, but that’s kosher.
This update does not seem to the case of change for functionality. Instead, it seemed to have tried to make it look prettier and more streamlined without making it any easier to use. If anything, it’s more complicated. I can’t seem to find anything or change my information. I keep hearing rumblings of a part of the app that plays music but I can’t find it (it was mentioned in the Hymn devos a few times). If that part of the app is no longer available, that’s fine but why keep it in the devos? Nothing seems to work properly and I kind of stopped using the app because of it. Which is honestly a shame.
Listen: if you can get past the issues with the app itself, the product is pretty awesome...but honestly, how sad is it to have to say that? I think the app needs a rehaul or, at the very least, to be tweaked to be more user friendly. I love SRT and would love to start using the app again!
It’s a good app. I agree the update has made it more difficult to use. I’ve used the app for years and was going to recommend it to someone who doesn’t know Jesus and the fact that you have no more free studies for me to recommend to her makes me sad.
In-App Purchasing for almost everything. 1/5
I alway check to see what the In-App purchase prices are before I download any App. It states they are all free. Be warned, they are not. Thought this would be an awesome App as it is visually appealing and fairly functional. Deleting App.
I used to love this app when it was new. I was excited about the whole $1.99 subscription but any time I’ve tried to subscribe it starts the purchase and then crashes immediately after. Such a bummer!
Love She Reads Truth... Terrible App Though 2/5
This app doesn’t work correctly more than half the time which is a bummer because I love all the content! Someone needs to invest some time and money in fixing it because otherwise it’s a wasted resource... which would be too bad considering so much of the population uses their phones constantly.
New app doesn't work on old iPad. 1/5
I updated and signed up for the monthly subscription using my iPhone a few weeks ago. Imagine my dismay when today I needed to use my old iPad for my devo time and I'm being forced to re-pay for the current plan that I already purchased. I restored my paid plans but everything I have purchased since the app upgrade is missing from my iPad. Be forewarned. The new app doesn't seem to be happy on older devices.
It seems like the app keeps getting worse. I want my subscription money back. I’m going to delete the app, it’s that bad.
Miss the older version 2/5
I used this app everyday, but it’s too cumbersome since the update.
Easy to use and enlightening 5/5
Before I found out about this app I would try to make plans to read my bible everyday but would find it hard to always have my bible with me. As a college student this has truly helped me be able to access the Bible EVERY day, no matter where I am. I love the plans offered and I have noticed such a great difference in my relationship with God through the consistency of being able to use this app.
New Interface Confusing 1/5
Please go back to the old interface. It was more appealing and easier to navigate.
if it ain’t broke don’t fix it 1/5
latest update is terrible
I used to use the app all the time, but the new update is awful. I gave up trying to use it and took it off altogether. I’m saddened because I loved the app....
So annoyed! 2/5
By Poppy D
Been using SRT for about 5 years. Since the app update I can’t get into my account! I’ve tried several times to request a reset email and nothing! No response. This is so upsetting to find that plans you’ve purchased are no longer accessible since you can’t even get into your account!! I went in as a guest and I too feel that the layout of the past was perfect and user friendly. Not sure I’ll keep using or recommending going forward.
not working 4/5
love this app but when i open it the app immediately closes out?? how do i fix this?
But like why does this app not work? 2/5
I got the SRT bible for Christmas and love it! I downloaded the app at the beginning of the year and never had any issues. I really enjoyed the devotions and community as well as the lock screen. I decided to subscribe to the study plans and now every time I go to read one it says I actually don’t have any of them and I always get the preview of day one. I’ve tried the app restore feature and get an error message. I even deleted the app, downloaded it again and now... IT WONT EVEN LET ME LOG IN. I’ve changed my password multiple times and I get an error message every time. I’m not sure what’s going on with this app but I would highly suggest working on an update. I can’t even use it. 😕
App crashes after using bookmark 1/5
Purchased Lent study giving benefit of the doubt, only to find that my app crashed when purchasing. Now I have been billed for the study but the study is nowhere to be found in my account. After in/installing the app I am now getting an error when attempting to login so I can't get to my account at all. I have submitted a help request as of last week and waiting to hear back. Such good content but extremely disappointed that I can't access my account or study.
Bible navigation is clunky. I finally resorted to using the bookmark to get back to my last spot but after a few times of resetting the bookmark the app crashed consistently even after closing and reopening. Removing and reinstalling seems to have helped and hopefully it won't happen again.
I don't mind the fact that everything is changed with the new version, but it is pretty annoying that the plan readings are available online for free but not through the app, although I get it. They have to fund it some way. However, this simply causes me to switch back and forth between browser and app which is tiresome, and because the Bible navigation isn't that great it's really just easier to read my physical bible and check the site.
I wouldn't have a problem purchasing the Bible study plans if it were easy to do everything in one place. But since it isn't I don't have anything to keep me on the app.
I hope it will improve and do plan to keep checking back because I really believe in what shereadstruth does and I want to support them.
Update needs to go 1/5
Paying money for plans but being unable to access them is not what I would call user-friendly
New version is awful, but content still good 3/5
I love SRT. The studies and books are amazing and the designs are beautiful. But this new app version is BAD. It’s harsh, doesn’t flow, and isn’t beautifully designed like what I expect from SRT. Please change it ASAP!!!
Missing old features 2/5
By Christy LaBarr
This is my favorite app and I give two stars because the content is so restorative to my soul when available.
I would love a fix for the exodus study. I have paid for it but haven’t been able to see any of the content yet 😔
Loving the progress! 4/5
We love you guys! Thanks for restoring some of the features we liked in the previous design...let the restoration continue!
New app is disappointing 2/5
I have used SRT for years now. I have purchased a good number of the studies as I prefer to have them on my phone rather than having to sign in to their site for access. At one point they offered some titles for free (back in the early days) and I had a combination of ones I purchased and a few that were free. Since the new app has launched I have lost about a third of my library. Not too happy about this. I have tried to locate the emails showing my purchases but that is a pain especially since they span several years. Would love to find another study app if anyone has suggestions.
Love It 5/5
I love this app and all the wonderful studies and devotionals; I use the timer to pray and study daily. I didn’t have the old version so I’m only using a new version so I can’t comment on how it was before but I love this app and I’ll continue to use it for a long time.
