It is so great to have a digital copy of the OSB, but it would be really, really nice if the read aloud option was a proper human voice..... and male. Currently it is a really jarring robotic female voice and it says the numbers between the verses. It is unfortunately not something anyone would actually want listen to.

I think there needs to be a way to skip between chapters and verses, for some reason I can't access the bible offline and can only view it by going on to play store, if a Downloadable version can be made available after we pay for it I think that would be great. I don't know why I can't view it if I'm offline even though I have paid for it. Also it is not obvious how to access the notes that go with the scripture if that can be updated and the other things I believe that would be great

I am so grateful to have found this volume. To me, it is The Holy Bible in its purest form, in its entirety and this inspired version helps the reader to study God's Word with greater clarity and understanding. This volume and my sincere research to come to a knowledge of Orthodox Christianity, has not only placed me upon a path of Eternal Salvation, but also has saved my earthly life. I spent more than 30 years as a Mormon, only to discover to my dismay that I had wasted 30 years of my life in a false religion. I love this Study Bible. I have it in Print form, on Android and as an iPhone app. I have total access to it 24/7. I highly recommend it to the sincere follower of Christ and to all.
