Ads are horrible. Ad service puts up ads that are gambling, dating, and other 'vice' things. I don't want to allow them to see my interests, so that's the garbage they show. I am currently looking for a different Bible app. Liked it better when the pull down bar didn't reset to Genesis every time I use it. I'd rather it stay in the book I was in - I might actually be trying to look forward or backward just a chapter or two.

I started using this app more than 5 years ago. It was useful has the King James and Amplified Bible versions and the audio Bible is very convenient when you want the word of God. However, in the last year the app started playing ads (never happened before). This is happening too often, and I had to delete it because I was concerned about malware.

The ads are now intrusive and too many of them. Also the resources selection was no longer working. It said "errored". I uninstalled and reinstalled the app and it fixed this problem. I still use the app but it is not as good as it once was with all the ads. 05/06/24 Still errors out on the resources page. Uninstall and reinstall fixes but unacceptable all the time so I lowered rating to 1 stars. Still obnoxious video ads that are hard to close out to use the Bible portion as well.
