The update won’t open. I keep having to click on it before it will open. I want the old app - which was reliable
been using this for years now but ever since the update it crashes and won’t open unless you are connected to wi fi. makes it totally useless for most places i go since i use cellular. when it worked it was a great tool but from all the complaints with no response i can only assume that they are not trying to fix the problem so buyer beware for now.
Thanks for the information on how the app works. It works fine now. Thanks Again!
I’ve had this app for years and with the last update it now crashes every time I try to open it in my iPhone X. Disappointed.....
Please update for iOS 12. Having trouble running on new update
I love having the app on my iPhone. It’s much more convenient that carry around tons of CD’s however the sound quality is much to be desired compared to the CD’s. I’ve noticed some entire words are missing from the end of chapters. I don’t think it’s purposely just like the last word or couple of words. I’ve also noticed that the app hangs and freezes on certain verses and I have to skip that verse and restart the recording to be able to move forward. Some annoying things but overall I’m glad to have Scourby on my iPhone
I’ve been a Scourby KJV fan for decades. This software is THE BEST. Playlists of verses to memorize. Audio is superb. Flawless text to go with audio. The work that went into this app must have been significant. I pray we can get tens of thousands listening to this app and the Word of God daily! Way to go YouBible
The last update had an odd glitch with 1 Corinthians 6:11-12. Highlight wasn't in sync with the two verses, and the reading wouldn't move beyond verse 12. I had to select verse 13 manually to have the Bible reading to perform correctly.
I have enjoyed this app for a long time and prefer Alexander Scourby far more than any other Bible reader. It was sad for me to discover that the “updated” 5.0.1 version falls to work on the iPhone iOS 12.4. It appears to come up then goes away. Oddly, it still shows when swiping between apps but will not come to the forefront as the active app, which means no functions can be used. Thus, it is utterly useless. I tried to reload the app multiple times and hope the bug is soon fixed.
I love this app. I use it every day. Since the update, however, I’ve had trouble with the read aloud feature randomly stopping and being unable to open the app while on the road driving. The earlier version did neither of these things. I have had to delete and reinstall the app several times. Rather disappointing in that it worked fine in the first version and is such a wonderful resource for Bible study.
