    This update addresses several problems with the app running on Windows 8.1. I have also improved the column layout, along with search, ensuring it is usable regardless of how small or large the window is.

It was great to see some new support for this app. I love this app for many reasons - the fact that it's ESV, free, no ads, very nice book and chapter index, and basically just fantastic in every way. Thanks so much for making this.

Nice flow of pages (when it doesn't freeze, which happens often - lost a star there), feels really comfortable reading it. Great options for font sizes and colors. Beautifully made. Lost another star for requiring internet connection. Found a typo on book selection section (the one where each book has a different sectional color): "Duet" for Deuteronomy...

Tried several times to load and will not. Is there a fix?

This is a wonderful app! However, it would be really nice if there were ways to make notes and a way to bookmark pages. If these features were created, I wouldn't mind paying for it.

Occasionally when using while connected to Wifi, entire chapters are missing and on my Surface Pro (original) I cannot finger swipe beyond a certain point and even pointing to another book using the menu works inconsistently. In short, you would swear a book is missing chapters when in fact, the app is simply NOT LETTING YOU ACCESS THEM.

as others have mentioned, the layout is really good. I really like the ESV translation. It just needs offline support. For most people, I assume they don't have wifi available at their church. Please add offline support.
