  • Hands down

  • Good app but

    By howiseverynametak3n
    Why is there no way to edit reading plans on the app? All it allows me to do is change the name. For a Catholic app I'm really saddened that the only chronological plans do not include the canonical texts. Also why can't I create my own reading plan on the app. I don't want to have to go to my computer to create a plan for my phone.

    I worked in IT for 36 years for IBM. You have the very best products for Scripture Study. Keep up the good and dedicated work. John R Lee, Scott. LA
  • Great Catholic Resources! Thank you!

    By MatthewAV
    • Great Catholic resources. • I felt that I finally found a Catholic Bible I could have online. • But I can not understand how this app is supposed to be used. All the “links” and new books flying open all of a sudden; accidentally highlighting text; the learning curve is too steep for my boneheaded brain. • I’m sure their is a set-up guide somewhere. • But I cant seem to find it. • I’ll just buy a hard copy somewhere. • Great work, devs, I’m just not too bright.
  • Catholic Bible Software

    By Rschutz
    Their commitment to providing Catholic bible study tools is amazing.
  • Not Great Design

    By Jacob P. W.
    It is helpful to have my library available wherever I go. However, I wish Faithlife would produce a less clunky (such as with the loading times) and more user-friendly (easier to navigate without endless clicks) app. Other Bible study applications have done so.
  • Constantly crashes

    By jazzbird77
    App freezes and crashes constantly. It has become virtually unusable. Please fix ASAP!!
  • Good idea, but

    By MCHM5456
    This app was looking to be very promising. However once I got it loaded I had difficulty navigating through the app. I never did figure out how to get to the daily reading and daily Breviary. I do not recommend if you are first in use apps for bible study.
  • Best App for Catholic Study and Prayer

    By Kegga75
    I use Verbum everyday for both study and prayer, usually Lectio Divina. It has so many great features and the library of books you can get with it is simply amazing.
  • Intimidated at first but now it’s awesome

    By Aptivapeople
    I really shouldn’t have been so intimidated by it. The interface is quite intuitive and the initial free literature with it is quite impressive to get one started. The the linked/split screen syncing between Bible passages and commentaries is awesome!
