VerseWise Bible® (Revised Standard Version, Catholic Edition) is the Catholic Bible (with deuterocanon and notes) at your fingertips. It is optimized for easy, convenient reading. The RSV is, as its preface states, "an authorized revision of the American Standard Version, published in 1901, which was a revision of the King James Version, published in 1611." Its goal was to: - Maintain the beauty of the King James - Update the text to more modern English usage - Take advantage of modern scholarship and the increased number of Bible manuscripts available The Catholic Edition, also commonly known as the "Ignatius Bible", was "prepared for the use of Catholics by a committee of the Catholic Biblical Association of Great Britain" and "published with ecclesiastical approval". It includes the deuterocanon (seven full books with additions to two others), and explanatory notes. 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.
This app has just the right combination of features which makes it a joy to use. However, after the last update, the problem with the "blank screen" on startup has reappeared. I expect the last page that I was reading to display, but it's a blank screen. I have to find the page again in order to resume reading. Please make this app great again!
Went to read my bible today. It went right to the bookmarked page as usual, but when I try to delete the old bookmark, it pops me right out of the app., effectively rendering the bookmark feature useless. Please bring back the old version, where I can mark where I left off.
I have been given many bibles, including RSV. But, I find myself wanting to read the Bible and one is not available. So, an electronic version appeals to me. I have researched many electronic versions of the Bible. Some were difficult to find the books of the Bible, others crowded me with their theological bent, some only had one translation. Verse Wise is easy to find the book/verse I want, the translation I want, and is convenient: I have always wanted to read Psalms but was put off because there was so many of them. But, with Verse Wise on my iPhone, I could read a few on my subway ride. When I reopened it on the next ride, Verse Ride remembered where in the Psalms I last read . So, I could continue my reading the next day or next week. After years of using, I found that one could access reading plans or get version with Early Church Fathers writings! I highly recommend Verse Wise. When searching for it type “verse” instead of “Bible” and Verse Wise will appear in App Store or on your installed on your iPhone or other electronic device.
If I could give it NONE I would. There are whole scriptures missing!!! It's disgusting to pick apart the Holy Scriptures!!!
Over the past year I have emailed the developer, notifying him of bugginess in the functionality of the highlighter feature. He’s responded saying he’d fix it in the next update. However, after more than a year, after a recent update the highlights still don’t work properly. (They disappear when moving to the next chapter.) Overall this is a well-conceived Bible app. It’s a great translation, and the design and functionality, especially regarding the organizing and tagging of bookmarks, is just great. However, this has made developers inability or unwillingness to fix bugs that much more disappointing. I hope they can polish this app for future releases.
I had this app on both my iPhone and my Ipad and used it for classroom work. The Iphone app still works but the IPad app no longer shows up nor can I now reload it as it appears to be available for the Iphone and IPod only. How do I get it back? :-(
My only suggestion is that the titles at the top of the screen that say "Old Testament" or "New Testament" would say, example, "OT Exodus" "NT Acts" so that you don't have to scroll to the top to remind yourself which book you are in.
This is a marvelous resource. It is easy to use, looks great and puts the very best and most accurate English translation literally at my fingertips. I use it daily to replace the often silly ICEL translation used in the Liturgy of the Hours (which, thanks be to God, is in the process of being revised in the same style as the new translation of the Roman Missal). The features are easy to learn, highly intuitive and quite useful. I also use it for study and contemplation, and the ability to go right back to where you last were reading in any book is most helpful. Highly recommended!
Would love to see RSV 2nd CE Needs new icon, this one feels very dated.
There is something ironic about a Bible app that is only supported for those with the newest, most expensive iPhone version...
