Easy to navigate, if it were only in a modern translation that could be understood I would have kept it.

Cannot uninstall after installation

The first thing it did when starting up is flop my screen upside down. I was happy with my orientation already. There doesn't seem to be a way to get it to rotate. I want a portrait view. Also, I would love a Bible that allows white text on black. So much easier on the eyes while reading.

Disappointing. Doesn't have the multiple windows feature found in the iPad version which made it my go to bible reading program. I downloaded the Windows version instead to use on my Surface 3 which does have multiple windows. It will be clunky on a touch screen, but better than this version.

Downloaded the app. Only 1 Bible and didn't know which version is that. Couldn't find the other versions of Bible. All books are to be purchased. Waste of spending money on this app.

I have tried this app because friends who use iCrap have good luck with it. Not so on this device (surface RT) And if you purchase it they don't want to give a refund. I will NOT sync between my PC and mobile device. The concept is a good one but not functional as yet. DONT waste your time and money.

Wish it had the ability to take notes & the ability to have a dark mode... but other than that love it!

Constantly crashes on my brand new Surface Pro 3. Needs an internet connection. Doesn't even have NKJV. Really needs some work.
Still can use app offline.

It loses much of the appeal without the pinch to zoom function. Will this be added.?

Very difficult to navigate. Can't connect to reading plans.

I'd love to see this get closer to feature parity with the iOS version but this is a great start.

1. Very expensive app
2. Only licensed and runs on the Win 8 device you purchased it on. Even though I use a tablet and PC with my Microsoft account it only works on my Surface 2
3. Can't copy content from Bible
4. Must be connected to Internet to use. This is frustrating when on an airplane.

Works great on my iPad and Mac. Can't get it to work on a Surface.

At least make the Bible offline for people who are mobile.
Also suggest a dark theme so it's less distracting in church.

There is different versions

I use this app on my iPad and I love it. But I just put it on my surface and I can't use it without internet connection. I am very disappointed.

I have the Glo software for PCs and decided to try their Windows 8 app out. You can't do nearly as much with this app as on other platforms, even with a Premium account. But for what the app does do-- it does it well! Very smooth, no lag, and fast! You only get the Bible and Media lenses, but they are integrated much better than their respective PC software counterparts. Hopefully there will be many more updates to come.

How do I uninstall this site

The available features for this all work very well, but it is my understand the this app on other platforms has many more features. Those are something that I would like to see brought over to the Windows version. You have to pay to get additional versions and media. If a Windows Phone 8.1 version is created, I would consider spending some money on these packages. Perhaps with the universal apps that Microsoft recently announce about BUILD 2014, a WP8.1 version is not too far off?

Pretty much worthless in church unless your building has WiFi. Shame.

The initial program costs nothing, but includes only the KJV translation and a dozen images. You can buy 3000 more images for $20, ESV or NKJV translations for $5, or SV or NKJV study bibles for $30.
For the money, I'll stick with the Laridian Pocket Bible app with which I can pick from a broader material selection, for less money, and reuse them across Windows Store, Windows desktop, Android, iOS, or web.

This app requires an internet connection at all times. Even after upgrading to the premium version, you have to have the internet. I found this out the hard way and even after requesting a refund less than an hour after purchasing the premium edition, they will not refund it. So I'm stuck with a program that won't work and a company that won't provide a refund.
Most other apps/programs allow for offline viewing. My suggestion is to go with them instead.

NIV shows up on iPhone app but only KJV on Windows 8 store app. What's up?

I first downloaded this app on my iPad; I also have a tablet with windows 8, when I came across this app on my tablet I got excited ... after I downloaded it AND signed in using my login it only gave me a some of the access not all of what I have on my iPad not to mention I bought the full version on my iPad. At this point I'm not able to sync my reading plans ... what a bummer! I hope y'all fix this seeing that in the description it states we are able to view it all.
