  • Version 4 Lagging - Update

    By Delta14Sierra
    On an iPad with multiple panes open, there is a HUGE lag when scrolling through Bible while waiting...waiting...waiting...for the rest of the panes to update. This was not an issue with the previous version. Hope the next update gets this corrected...and soon. Update: Did an uninstall/reinstall and this issue went away. Thank you, Craig, for your patient, kind, and diligent effort in helping me to resolve this.

    Thanks for the changes and upgrade. More user friendly than ever.
  • Fantastic update to great Bible app

    By EdHans
    Update: Word selection for lookup or Auto Study is cleverly and well implemented. The best keeps getting better! PocketBible has always been an excellent Bible app for iOS and version 4 makes it even better. Continuous scrolling, massively improved book selection/download screen, easier to use menus, etc. Plus PocketBible has always had one of the largest libraries of Bible versions, commentaries, and dictionaries available. Definitely worth a try.
  • Misleading and too expensive.

    By theConstructiveCommenter
    The description says when you install and register you will have the KJV Bible free and access to 40 Bibles, commentaries, dictionaries.... Yes, combined. The free Bibles are not standard. Some of the free resources are decent but many are bible-reading plans. The Bibles for purchase are expensive. (At least throw us one bone like the NKJV or NIV.) This is why I deleted this app years ago and nothing has changed, and the technology is not much better. Some of the other Bible apps have much better start-up resources and technology. Deleting this one again.
  • Love this app - one suggestion

    By green_eyed_lady_8-)
    I love this Bible app! I only wish I could highlight one word at time instead of only a whole verse at a time.
  • The Best Bible app!

    By Joefl57
    I have been using this program since I had my PalmPilot back in the 90s. I’ve tried some of the other apps however I have not found them to be as useful and versatile as this program. I love the ability to bookmark and highlight verses, add notes to verses, and autostudy verses. One of the most useful features is the ability to sync my Bible to my devotional reading plan and my commentaries. This causes the commentaries to follow along with me and match whatever portion of the Bible I happen to be reading at the time. Then, there’s the tabbed panes, which allowed me to have many books open at the same time. Some of these features are available in the Advanced Feature set which is a very minimal cost. However the basic program comes with many free books, and many of my friends have started using it as well. It seems anytime I use it in a class people start asking me which program I’m using. Also, this developer has a buy once/own it policy. Once you buy a book or devotional through this app you own it. The books I bought when I was using a palm pilot 17 years ago........I still own! I was able to download them free when I upgraded to my iPhone and then my iPad several years later. By far the best Bible app.
  • Best !!

    By Krug j.
    If your into Bible study, I've been using this for years, and I’ve never had to repurchase a Bible or book. They are all waiting for me no matter what device I’m using. (This Bible app has the best features of any I've seen.) Very easy to navigate in books and between books. Excellent support. Always making it better. Fantastic update! “I think the page animation would be better suited for changing pages rather than changing media.” Thanks.
  • Great upgrade, but...

    By Shelbyyorky
    Copying verses is now not as good as the previous version. It leaves too much space between sentences and renders the copying of verses as less than adequate, especially For the poetry books. I hope that is fixed since this was an important function for my study. Got a response from Laridian that some books are designed to have spaces, especially the poetry books so this cannot change. I appreciate their follow up on this though. Overall, a wonderful app that I have been using for years! Also wish all books could be highlighted and not just bibles. Hopefully that is coming?
  • This is why I’m a loyal user of PocketBible

    By Gary Cantwell
    I have used various versions of this app since the Palm Pilot days of the 1990s. I have had continual access to the NIV bible translation that I bought then through all of the different platforms and upgrades, along with dozens of other translations and commentaries. This is a tool that I have used weekly, usually daily, for about 20 years. I can’t say that about too many other apps. The original developer is still leading the charge. He is creative, innovative, and knows his stuff. He thinks carefully about how people use the software, and is regularly making helpful improvements that accelerate our study of the Word. One of my favorite features of PocketBible is the personal notes, bookmarks and highlights. Notes that I added to a verse while in seminary in the 1990s are still there today, helping me to see how God has continually been working in my life. Now I have literally 5000 of these personal notations that give this app the feel of my very own well-worn print Bible with lots of underlining, highlighting and notes scribbled in the margins. Plus, it’s all always available on all my devices! With this latest update, I can easily (and quickly) search through these notes (e.g. search “barnacles” to find that C.H. Sturgeon illustration I added many years ago). This is why I’m a loyal user of PocketBible.
