  • First Bible but bad interface

    By Dan Dunmire
    My only complaint is the preferences page doesn’t actually save any of the preferences. When I select to return to the page I was on after making changes, I find none of the preferences I selected have actually taken hold.
  • I love it!!!

  • I'm confused.

    This is a lovely Bible, but I've seen reviews say that it dose not mention Jesus' name. I have skimmed through the first five chapter of Matthew and I have seen his name mentioned at least nine times.
  • Bad Book 0/10 :(

    By Joffrey le Oztrige of dooooom
    This book was just... odd. The story wasn't half bad and I really got attached to that Jesus fellow, but the book just seemed hateful. First, I saw the "benign" god kill way more people than the "evil" Satan. Second it seemed like the whole book was one "don't do this" after another. It seems like God had surprisingly little tolerance for being a protagonist.

    I have used this iBook for several months and find the functions very useful. It is quick and easy to refer to cross-references, easy to highlight and add notes. Easy to mark locations for future reference. Also an excellent translation. I also accidentally discovered maps at the very end of the book, following the concordance. The maps are not listed in the table of contents. I suggest you identify the maps in the TOC so users will be aware of them and to also speed navigation to their location.

    I only downloaded the sample because I wanted to see how easy it was to navigate through each chapter because I bought one version of the bible that would default to the last page read and found this version does the same. When I read a verse and went back to the table of contents then returned to the library. I went back to the book and it automatically defaults to the last page I read instead of the table of contents. I was hoping this version would be different. Very disappointed.

    This eBook is formatted perfectly, and makes cross-referencing really easy. Looks good, feels good, works good - it's just really really good. My only complaint is with the recent update - all of my highlights and notes (five years's worth) are missing from the text! :( I can see them in the notes section, but I cannot share them, anymore, and they aren't reflected in the text when I click on them. Someone help?
