VerseWise Bible® (King James Version) is the Bible (with optional deuterocanon) at your fingertips. It is optimized for easy, convenient reading. This release includes the option of having the deuterocanon (also known as the apocrypha) off or on. When off, one sees the Protestant canon of 66 books. When on, one also sees additional books and text from the Septuagint, the Greek Bible most commonly used during the time of Christ and Apostles. This text, which was included in most KJV publications until the 19th century, should be of interest to all Christians, but especially Eastern Orthodox readers who regard the Septuagint as the biblical canon. FEATURES: - Share selected verses via Messages, Mail, Facebook, Twitter & more - Highlight verses - Easily copy verses (with reference) to clipboard - Create bookmarks and organize using tags - Quick navigation to any scripture - Search for one or more words, assisted by word completion and search history - Returns exactly to last location and page position when app is revisited - Automatically bookmarks your last location in each book and has a view history (up to 100 of your last readings) for easy back-and-forth navigation between books - Convenient and smooth side-scroll for previous/next chapter navigation - Low light mode - Reading Plans Go to our product web site @ http://vdub.software for more details.
I am very pleased with this app. It’s search function is great, and I love the availability of the additional books when Deutercanon is turned on in settings.
This latest update for VerseWise is nothing like the original version, which I quite liked. Of course, I am exaggerating a bit, but enough has changed that I can't say I'm impressed with it anymore. One of my biggest complaints is that you can no longer change the text size in-app. Which means if I want a larger (or smaller) font size, I have to close the app, dig through the settings, and change the font size for ALL text on my iPod. Whoever redesigned this app should be ashamed. It was PERFECTLY FINE before, so why change it??? This is the first time in years I've seriously considered switching to YouVersion. Please either fix it or offer a "classic" version for us diehards that hate change.
I have no objections. It's worth the money. I love the bible reading plan with the apocrypha included. Amazing.
Every time I open the app it crashes. Please fix.
When the King James Translation was published in 1611, it included a list of books under the heading of "Apocrypha". One of these was the Apocalypse of Ezra, otherwise labeled as 2 Esdras (labeled in the Vulgate as 4 Ezra). It is missing from this edition of the King James Apocrypha and it's absence is unacceptable. This book played a large role in history (such as with Columbus) and early 19th century Protestant revivals. For Orthodox, it's also important as either an intrigue or sacred text. Russian and Ethiopian Orthodox both accept the book fully as canonical scripture. Add it to this translation with haste. I require it for my studies and this app is lacking without it.
In the Authorized King James Version of the Apocrypha, the last chapter and verse in II Esdras is 16:78,1&2 Ezra is wrong and there is no 3 John in the Authorized KJV. This is a bogus app with the AUTHOR reauthoring what he feels should be the way the bible should be structured. DON'T waste your money on thus sham of an app. The REAUTHOR PUT AN orthodox apocrypha in an Authorized KJV bible. If you want an Authorized KJV Apocrypha, theres only 1 in the app store and its 99¢. I know because unfortunately i purchased all of them. I e-mailed the RE-AUTHOR of this app on his online forum you can check and he said that's what he did and defended it. Deserves -100 stars.
I have several Holy Bible apps but, IMO, this is the best one. It's very user friendly & has great personal preference choices. The ability to have the Deutero-Canonical OT books included makes it quite friendly for Orthodox Christians who, overall, still adhere mostly to the Authorized Version. (For those who prefer the RSV, this is also available from VerseWise!). I love it!
This has to be one of the easiest Bible readers I've ever tried. I use it daily.
This Bible is easy to use. Love the search a word, and find any text. As a older adult, this bible version is very easy to use. Thank you for making it my # 1 app.
I love God and his word this app is the best king james version so far but im still looking if it would scroll through all the chapters without having to back out i would quit looking
