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!
Disappointed in App Update 3/5
I have been using SRT for years now & adore the mission and the content the offer. I regularly recommend it to other women. This latest update has been a real disappointment. It has moved the reading plan lists that I have already purchased & the Bible in a year plan off the main page. The overall layout is confusing. My Bible in a year (which is my daily reading) is now at the bottom, not the top, the daily scriptures have been removed from the front image where you can see them at a glance. I have used it far less since the update & really hope they take a new look.
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.
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
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.
Reminders to read only working for one day :( 1/5
Reminders to read is one of my favorite features. It’s only been only working for one day. All of my notification settings are correct.
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.
New version difficult to use 2/5
When I updated the app, the new version deleted almost all of my "marked as read" including my Bible in a Year info...it also deleted some of my purchased plans and now they are in alphabetical order which on one hand is more organized...but in the other hand is chaotic ad I have to scroll in order to get to my current plan. Then when I try to open the days readying it takes forever to load on my phone. I never used to have this problem and I could even read my plans without data. I'm sad and it's causing me not to use the app...I used to love and look forward to reading, now it's a struggle to get en open anything.
Seriously! You have to pay money... 1/5
Most of the things on this app you have to spend money on.. like trying to be apart of a group that reads the Bible! So frustrating how so many Christian app companies are doing this!
Good app, needs work on the plans views 2/5
Love the app, and was excited for the update, which allows users to link their profile and save all their purchased plans. However, now opening a plan is extremely slow, like staring at the same screen for several minutes before it opens, slow. Also if you switch from the “My Plans” to “Available Plans” view, it’s nearly impossible to get back. I pretty much have to completely close and relaunch the app. I’m really hoping this gets fixed in an update, but so far, no. Everything else works well, but considering the biggest draw for the app is the plans, this is a major factor for me. Once that gets fixed, I’d bump my rating up to a much higher score.
Challenging to Navigate 3/5
By seniorita mas fina
I downloaded the app because I just purchased the Bible and thought it would be neat to use as a guide along with the various bible studies. I’ve use You Version Bible app for years so its a little difficult for me to adjust to this. I don’t like the idea of having to “mark as read” when completing a daily reading whereas with the Bible app once I complete that reading it automatically updates my activity. I love the Bible and the various bible studies available through this app, I would just like to see a little enhancement with navigating my activity as well as have the option to post my comments with an alias name or just my first name and not my entire name. I hope the app developers will take this into consideration to enhance the navigation.
Newest update 1/5
By Nicole Kansas
I have been using She Reads Truth for some time. The latest update is HORRIBLE!! The app now crashes ALL THE TIME!! The Bible reading plans are inconvenient to navigate to now, and all my prior progress in my current plan was wiped out!! I do not like that I can’t see the content of your daily reading anymore. For example, it now just says “Day 32, Feb 1st” instead of “Feb 1st, Job 2-4, Gal 1.” And the fact that it is Day 32 of a 365 day plan is only valid if you started Jan 1st! Did I mention the app crashes ALL THE TIME!! What was a peaceful way to start the day is now very frustrating! PLEASE change it back!!!!
New App Very Disappointing 1/5
By Marty Mulder
The new version of the SRT app is extremely disappointing. I find it very difficult to navigate, lost progress in my previous studies, and can’t find new ones. I have lost interest and am considering giving up on it.
New version is not user friendly 1/5
I have been using She Reads Truth for a few years and I love the Bible plans, lock screens, and community. I even own the She Reads Truth book by Amanda and Raechel as well as the SRT Bible. But the new app is so completely not user friendly that I’m tempted to stop using SRT completely! I feel like the developers went for aesthetic instead of functionality. I’d like to see an app that combines both. I hate how to get to your current plan (if it’s not the one everyone is currently doing together) you have to click through a couple screens and scroll. I also think the homepage is very scattered and doesn’t make any sense logically. Finally, I cannot for the life of me figure out how to change my profile picture! I even Googled it and looked at the SRT FAQ and found nothing. The picture that’s up is from six years ago and I would love to change it! I also hate that there is no way to update your email address (the one attached to my account is not current) and I hate that you have to put in a last name (For privacy, I don’t want all my comments to show my first and last name). All in all I love what the brand is doing and I believe in the ministry and message of SRT, but this app itself is terrible.
Update is horrible for note taking 2/5
I have used the She Reads Truth for years for Bible reading and note taking. As a mom of two small kids, it was nice to know that, as long as I had my phone, I could access my Bible and all sermon notes. The new update has made note taking horribly complicated and difficult. I cannot start a note without a scripture reference, it’s a multi-step process to access an old note, and a large part of the time, I cannot even see what I am typing in a note. This app is now more of a frustration than a blessing. If it weren’t for my old sermon notes saved in the app, I would probably have deleted it off my phone by now.
Please make some changes... 2/5
I miss being able to unmark a certain lesson plan as read so I can easily go through it again. Everything takes so much longer to load now which has caused me to abandon my daily readings a few times now because I didn't have the time to wait for it to load. Things just don't run as smoothly on the new update and it's really affecting user-friendliness.
The new update needs updating 3/5
I originally got SRT so I could have a Bible on my phone and I was curious about the women of the word study. I have definitely been challenged and encouraged by the studies and it’s convenient to have the Bible there to switch back and forth too. However with the new update it is more discouraging and frustrating rather than uplifting. You can no longer just read the Bible on the app. If you want to go to the next chapter you have to go back, click the book, then the next chapter. It’s not helpful and makes it easy to be distracted. I think great things can happen and have happened through SRT but right now it not being user friendly defeats the purpose of what it was originally intended.
By Bible Study Mom
Will have to cancel. Impossible to sign in. Update is terrible. I’m disappointed.
Update issue 2/5
I normally really love this ap. Over the weekend, some new update rolled out that totally crashed when I tried to redownload the yearly Bible reading plan. Until the upgrade it was on my phone and was working well. All the plans I paid for are gone from the history, and the ap isn't working at all. I hope you get fixed soon.
Update is disappointing 2/5
The old version of the app was awesome, but with the new update everything is slower, prone to glitches, and my plans didn't sync properly from my other device. I also can't highlight or add notes during my reading now. Definitely need another update to fix these issues or I might stop using the app altogether.
Don’t update!!! 2/5
I use to use this app every day, but after the new update it takes such a long time to load anything that I get frustrated every time I use it. It constantly resets my progress on my plans, which is very inconvenient in a long plan like the Bible in a Year. There needs to be a LOT of bug fixes and updates to get this app to be usable in this format. The old format worked great and ran quickly! Why the developers tried to “fix” something that wasn’t broken is beyond me.
New update glitches 3/5
I’ve been using this app for years and love the new update! It’s so much nicer and streamlined much better! However I’ve found there are a LOT of glitches. Clicking on the back button doesn’t work and neither does the “tap to mark as read” button. I have to hit them so many times before either of them works. Really hoping you can do a glitch fix update soon!!!
Bring back what we loved! 2/5
Thank you for the heart of this incredible app. I’ve read through the Bible and enjoyed the other devotionals. However, I miss the ease of finding my place in the Bible in a year plan, and I lost all of my progress when I updated. Not as user friendly now. So disappointed.
Bad Layout 2/5
By Skadoofer Mcjeeves
I have had this app for at least 3-4 years and I loved the previous layout. In this new layout I’ve lost many of the plans that I have purchased and I’ve tried to restore them several times to no avail. The new layout is cool I’d just like all of my plans that I’ve purchased back.
