In my busy life as a dad and husband this is so needed on a daily
Great app! Wish there was a way to type out personal notes and switch between different color highlights, that would definitely be a plus for me. My only concern is the iCloud backup. I have been having issues syncing from my phone to tablet as it crashes. However, I’m sure this can be resolved with a software update. Keep up the good work!
Thank you to whoever compiled this. Only suggestion would be linking biblical references in the footnotes for convenience sake. Maybe just a pop up that shows the scripture referenced? May our Lord bless whoever reads this with mercy, understanding and joy. Amen.
This has been an extremely educational book/app. I recently converted to the Greek Orthodox Religion. I have always lived in a Christian home, but once I began learning about the Orthodox religion, I felt a calling to convert. This book/app has helped me easily learn the beliefs and ways of the Greek Orthodox Church. It is very educational and has helped me greatly in my new faith. Thank you for writing this book/app. I highly recommend it to anyone looking to learn more about the Greek Orthodox faith.
My go-to reference.
It wasn’t what I expected it to be, I was hoping for more features. There are no options to add or write margin notes which can be extremely helpful if using an iPad with an Apple Pencil. Also you're forced to highlight one complete verse, instead of being able to choose what you prefer to highlight. If I knew it was this limited I would've never purchased it and just used Coptic Reader which is free. Can you please put in a feature to use different color highlights and to be able to add margin notes for the readers own records?
I really enjoy the Orthodox Study Bible app! I am only writing this review to inform the app developer that the share to Facebook option is not working. I will take down this review when I know this feature has been fixed. Thank you.
Thank you for this Orthodox Study Bible app! It is among the most useful Bible apps available. I have just again been able to open this app after a short time of being unable to. This app is easier for me to see than my hardbound copy. Thanks!
