  • I want the previous app style back

    By CPBeck
    There have been too many changes with the update. But the one change that I dislike the most is the “keyword search”. It does not narrow down the location of the word you’re looking for as easily as the old app style. I would really appreciate it if you could put the former search method back. I can adjust to the other changes but I’ve been using BibleGateway for my searches now and I’m shopping for other Bible apps too because of this change. I hope you fix this soon.
  • Awesome beyond belief

    By Racer233
    This an awesome bible app. Out of all the ones I’ve tried I still come back to this one. They are always up dating and adding features that help make my studying more fruitful. I recommend this to novice students as well as seasoned veterans. You will not go wrong with this app. Thanks and God bless.
  • Bad update

    By Bola K
    I have had this for years and loved it. For the first time, I’m tempted to switch, but won’t. I have too many notes in the app to switch. This last update is full of bugs. Search does not work properly: have to type in the search text twice. It also splits the screen into 3 columns leaving the Bible text in a very narrow column. I wish I could undo the last update.
  • Hoping for more free bibles offered in PocketBible

    By Flamestar1
    I love and utilize PocketBible for 90% of bible study. It has been phenomenal in english. I hope Laridian would upload spanish Reina Valera 1960 version free to complete my studies.
  • Getting worse

    By knakatsu
    I get a “top loading” screen every time I launch the app and it then reverts all of my tabs to random books/verses. Is it possible to roll back 2 or 3 releases and call it good?
  • Version 4 Feedback

    By Detroit 1999
    My first Pocket Bible was on a Palm Pilot. I’ve had this app on ever platform available since. I’m currently on Apple/Mac systems. It remains my preferred app for studying and doing devotions. However, version 4 is not as user friendly. And now has lag (slower response time) when opening the app on a iPad and iPhone. -Can’t cut and paste a word, making it much harder to get a definition. (Has been corrected!) -Grid Bible Navigation Setting changed with new version (I still prefer the previous color scheme). I love this app (it’s an excellent tool but has bugs). My preference is for the previous version. Previous version was five stars.
  • Great upgrade, but a few comments

    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, although in previous versions of the app there were no spaces, which made copying and using verses in other apps much better. Apparently this was changed in this new version, much to my regret. I hope Laridian goes back to no spaces at some point, particularly with the NIV translation which is what I use the most. 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?
  • Still love this app

    By kiz2015
    You need to bring back the touch zones. The two and three-finger swipe gestures are not very user friendly for people with arthritis. If I want to work with my iPad propped up and using external keyboard, which I often do, I either have to contort my wrist or rotate my device at an angle. And the device is having a hard time distinguishing between an up/down scroll and a left/right swipe — again because of the angle of my device in relation to the angle of my hand. Apart from that, I contacted their app support about something else and they were great about replying promptly and professionally.
  • Outstanding now - Greatly improved!

    By JayBrook
    I’ve been using this for years and it gets better all the time, especially recently. Much faster than my other bible apps. Very nice Craig. Thanks!
  • Used to Be a Great App

    By karemac
    This app is no longer working as it did prior to the last couple of updates. It is slower. Shows "loading" frequently. It is hit or miss, mostly miss when I enter scripture addresses. It does go to the right book but often not to the right chapter and verse. This makes following the sermon or Bible study very difficult. I have used your product with my Palm Pilot, then with my iPad...but I really need your help with the poor performance with the major upgrade you did. I have an older iPad 3 but I still feel Pocket Bible should work for me. I have spent a lot of money, for me, for Bibles to have to consider another product.
