  • AVOID THIS APP! Very buggy, non-existent customer service.

    UPDATE: It has recently lost the ability to sync the Life App notes to the Bible passage which completely renders the app useless (try scrolling from Gen to 1st John). Added to a long list of problems this app has given me over the last two years, I have to warn any prospective users to stay away. I’m going back to my printed LASB. ******************** This is the first Bible app that feels right for me. I've always been a huge fan of Olive Tree's app but it lacked a really good study component. Now I have both Bible and a first class commentary together, all the time! It's a little wonky, the study notes don't perfectly sync to the Bible text but an occasional small finger swipe fixes that pretty quickly. And it lacks the deep customization that Olive Tree offers like providing lots of page texture and font colors. But mostly, I'd like: — the ability to define more highlighter colors (I'd replace one of the defaults—pink!—with red, for instance), — syncing of notes and highlighted passages across all devices, — ability to underline as a highlight option, — ability to highlight only a few words instead of the whole verse. UPDATE As time has passed, each update becomes more obtuse in its navigation and harder to work with. After years of use, this latest version will not let me access the Study section or download/restore it, advising me I have an invalid token. TERRIBLE UI and USER EXPERIENCE!!! UPDATE They removed the ability to highlight text and replaced it with a feature that allows you to save passages and their study notes in folders. Ugh. Terrible idea! Now you have folders of notes and passages that have no context around them truly a harebrained scheme. I still value the teaching in this Bible but have to use Olive Tree’s NKJV for my readings and notations/highlights.
  • Needs a UX designer

    By Lolxdost
    I love the life application bible and tyndale's attempt to match the powerful platform in iPhone and ipad format. Unfortunately, the more recent updates only add complexity and forget the user experience all together. Currently, I CANNOT COPY AND PASTE (the most elementary function of any app), I’m asked about an expired token, and several other issues that used to be much more simple. I can't wait to use this app to its fullest capacity, but until then I will continue to use and recommend the popular FREE competitor "Bible"app.
  • Used to be good

    By Taffygirl77
    This app is useless now. I keep getting "token expired" whatever that means. It won't let me highlight or anything. I really frustrated bc it was expensive and they've ruined it. I'm getting no response to emails. I'd stay away from the app until something changes and don't throw your money away.

    1. Find it frustrating to highlight selected bible verses completely to share : the highlighting is not user friendly. I lose some top or bottom lines. 2. The previous update gave way to read verses of one’s choice but this new update requires you to read the chapters to your desired verses. 3. When is audio of this great app coming off.
  • Best bible ever!! Worst app ever!!

    By proverb31wifey_1987
    I have a hard copy of this bible and it’s teachings have been amazing, however, it’s a heavy bible to carry around all the time, so I like the convince of having the app also. About 6 months again I’ve been having the worst trouble with the app. It never works! The study part doesn’t show up and I am constantly reverted to purchasing it after I’ve already done so. Over all I rated it one star as the worst app ever!! Don’t wast your money on an app that has technical difficulties that keep you from being able to access it. Buy a hard copy it’s life changing.
  • Not a good app

    By Sport9894
    I downloaded and reinstalled the app 4 times hoping that the $30 purchase I made would show never did...not very user friendly because of this. Will not be recommending to my church. Love the printed version though!
  • No longer a dependable useful app

    By Starbucks you can do better!
    I have to discontinue using this app after several years of it being my #1 go to app for my Bible. It no longer works. I cannot access the Bible versions and study guides I paid $39.99, $9.99, $9.99 and $9.99. It’s a shame. Life Application Bibles are wonderful to use. Just don’t waste your money or your time trying to use this app.
  • Disappointed

    By Kapcran
    Difficult to navigate. Must purchase study material and NIV bible (which I did) but very disappointed.
  • Not user friendly

    By Tirosen
    I had the older version of the Life Application Study Bible which I paid for the app. The older version was much easier to use. Since the updates, it is clumsy and not easy to use. I can’t find the commentaries anymore. I don’t recommend this app. I am seriously disappointed with the updates. It is not easy to use. The older version was much easier. Updated doesn’t mean better.
  • It was a great app but...

    By Cerisano
    It was an great app but with updates it drops info and tells you that you have the lite version and requests you buy it again.. confusing. I expect more from Tyndale.
