Pros and cons of NIV Bible app for iPhone and iPad

NIV Bible app good for

This ap is great. Its really simple to use and its great to be able to have a Bible to carry around with you.
Its so handy to have a portable bible with cross references and the possibility of highlighting and making notes. I just love it! :-)
This app is very easy to use and has all the tools that need for my studies. Its great!
It has been a bit challenging to get used to the new way but it is getting there. Have liked this version of Bible and used it for a long time. It is great to make notes on sermons, in quiet time and highlight special areas, rather then the whole verse. Use it every day! 5/9/2013 Please check, I have been loosing some written notes with the new version. I still like this bible app very much but I am still loosing my last written notes, help!!!! May 30.2013 Okay, now I can no longer open the NIV 1984 which I use all the time, and I am still loosing notes!!! even with the revised NIV... Am I doing something wrong? Does the app not save right away, do I need to do something to save my notes? ---------- 7/16/13 Please adjust the app to automatic save, I still loose my notes if I dont go back, and just close the lid on my iPad!
Wonderful app. So easy to use especially for people with vision difficulties. I recommend this.
This is hands down my favorite app. I love the new partial verse highlighting feature!

Some bad moments

New update doesnt work with iPad. Dont waste your money until they fix problem.
Cant upload to my ipodtouch only to my itune computer....why is it? I tryied many times.
The Bible function is fine. I wish this app -- which I paid money for -- would stop nagging me!! Every time I use it, it seems, it nags for something. Youve been nagging me for a rating , now youve got one... one star! I hope you like it. This app nags for ratings. It nags you to buy things. It nags and nags and nags.
Ive used this app for years because I dont want to be stuck without a Bible when I lack an internet connection. However, in the last update it crashes when I do word searches.
