** Update: Shortly after I left this review, and update was issued and I have been using the app with NO ISSUES for a week or two now. I’m glad that they were able to resolve this! Original Review: I love Alexander Scourby’s recording of the Bible and this is the best way for me to listen to it. The app looks a little dated, but is overall clean in appearance. Navigation is pretty straightforward as well. The only problem is this app crashes all the time. If I start playing it and then pause it, inevitably, when I come back to start it again it will crash. Everyone I try to open the app after that it crashes! It usually will do so until I restart my phone. I thought that it might be my iPhone 6s, but when I upgraded to the 11 pro, it did the same thing. This is totally unacceptable for an app you’re paying $20 for. I love the app and want to continue using it. I hope they resolve this soon.
Real human voice! No stupid music to distract! Start and stop anywhere! This app feels old at first but its just what I need! Great job to the people who update it and keep it running!! KJV only is the way for me! Romans 3:10 3:23 6:23 Revelation 21:8 James 2:10 Titus 1:2 Ephesians 2:8 John 3:15 1:12 3:16 10:27 1 John 5:13 I know I have eternal life and you can too because this app reviewer is a Soul Winner!!!
Scourby Bible app is excellent for listening or reading scripture. Audio is clear and easy to understand with Bible plans available as well. Options also include ability to save a playlist of favorite scriptures or highlighted.I have been using this app for years.
Good value. Responsive devs. I use it at home and in the car. Many useful options and settings.
Just wanted to say Thank you for modifying the speed between verses. God bless you all.
I use this daily, as I love to listen and read simultaneously. I was disappointed with the latest version, because the index search had the screen for the Bible books completely blank. As it turned out was NOT an app problem, but an iOS 13 problem. I got prompt response from the developers, to change the Apple settings from dark to light, which immediately fixed the problem. The app is even better now, with a speed selection option for $4.99. It is well worth it to me. Thank you for helping me keep this great app in top condition for bible study.
Scourby App is the Best I have tried numerous apps and this app is hands done the best. In fact, I read the Theology Degrees report that ranked it No 1. No better Narrator than Scourby and the custom playlist feature is only one of its kind. This is the most important app on my iPhone. If I could give it 10 stars I would. Have there been bugs? Of course, but name one software that doesn’t have bugs that have to be fixed. I’ve contacted the Scourby company about some things I've found and they quickly fixed it, their customer support is top-notch. One final comment, when I listen to Scourby it’s like I’m there in the story. It’s amazing how he can capture the spirit of each verse and bring it to life. I could listen to him for hours and often times I do.
I love this app! Alexander Scourby is the ONLY voice for me when it comes to listening to the Bible. This app is worth every penny! Thank you!
Thanks for adjusting the pause between verses. While I know some like the pause I personally did not. Thanks for making the change while keeping options to everyone.
