Review from Fran Gikow
Just like Gordon Pfeil, my app no longer works after the update (Motorola G4). Tried everything- reinstalling, powering off still no app. It just says, "We're sorry. An error occurred and the app stopped. We will work harder to make the app better every day." You direct it to go back to the Home Screen and it says "Loading Daily Prayers" and then goes to "Daily Prayer Created" and the error continues.....! Very frustrating! I've been re-trying this for over the past month hoping it would be fixed to no avail.
An improvement, but there are still two issues. First, and most important, the text is now much too large, even at the smallest setting. Just lowering the lower limit for the font size would do the trick. Second, there is still an empty area on the bottom that is taken up by navigation buttons. Many apps (e.g., Kindle for Android) “auto-hides” this strip. I suggest doing the same, to provide more space for the actual text.
Great app especially for travelling. I was having a problem once I went to a different country with the "app blocked, return to homepage" message. I solved it by going to settings\ apps\ ibreviary\ storage and clearing all data. You will lose the settings though but it only takes a few taps to set them back. Hope this helps someone.
Great content. Sometimes overly complicated (compared to bound breviary). Technically very weak (Daily updates fail...daily; need to de-re daily or a few times daily; text size adjustment requires exiting text mode, adjust, return to text to check size, repeat until text size meets need - clunky). May return to paper/bound breviary to save time & effort!
This app has improved greatly over the past 2 years. I couldn't find any bugs or clunky features. The only possible improvement I can think of would be clearly bordered buttons, as it is sometimes difficult to get the app to follow instructions by tapping icons.
The newest version is working well EXCEPT the text, even at smallest setting, is much too large. The Saints icon on days available is completely opposite... The text is so small I can't read it until I change to largest setting... Please adjust the text size feature...then you'll receive 5 stars. Thank you!
I downloaded 1 1/2 weeks for while on retreat and without Internet, but app did not work unless Internet connected. Can you allow the iBreviary to work off-line in these cases. Obviously download would have to be done beforehand. Thanks for such an important app. A lot better than lugging around heavy Breviaries!
Following your feedback, this new version of IBreviary include a redesigned text managment for the readings, a less intrusive commands for Text To Speech and AutoScroll, and few bugs corrected.
