I completely hate this new interface. The product you are selling is the audio. Why get the app instead of getting it in an audio format? Should be because I can hear the audio and fallow along as it highlights the verses. (Or bold it, I messed that when it was removed.) I can select the exact verse and quickly start there. So I can hear the exact sections I would like to read. I can’t do that with a mp3 version. I can’t do this with this new interface. (Other then hitting next 30 times in a row.) It’s like you gave a list of features you wanted and it was designed with the audio as *a* feature, but not the center of your product. If I tap a verse, I want the audio to jump there. Also when I use large font because of my eye sight, the audio bar is covering the end of some verses I’m trying to read........ As someone with color blindness, the blue is harsh on the eyes. I don’t know how much you paid for the new interface, but it was a waste. Someone messed up badly in design.
This new update is such a disappointing mess!!! It is NOT user friendly. I feel so stupid as when I want to change something I end up having to go back to the beginning and it appears to just go on and on when I’ve set up a yearly Bible reading plan. Can’t even put in which plan/reading I want or see which it is. This was my husbands and my favorite plan. If when we were looking for a Bible app to accomplish our reading plan a few years back, and PAID $20 each, we wouldn’t have purchased this new updated format. Now I’m forced to look for a new one that is more user friendly. I’m sooooo disappointed which you could fix this so we could continue with this Bible app. Plus we were telling everyone about how wonderful this bible reading was. Not anymore. It’s a “used to” conversation. Please fix it or give us our $40 back. WHY?...change something that was working. I know updates are needed and can be good but when you tamper with user friendly it doesn’t make it fun and productive. PLEASE!!!! fix it.
The new format of the app is unusable with a screen reader/voice over for the blind. It is also no longer user friendly for sighted individuals. It’s almost like they want you to make a new purchase to more easily use the app. We utilized the playlists constantly for a memorization took and those are no longer an option. In 2015 we purchased the entire program (download and CD’s) for our daughter- who happens to be blind. I have contacted the company numerous times as we never received the CD’s. It wasn’t a huge deal since we still had the app. didn’t begin hounding them until March when they revamped the app causing it to be inaccessible with a screen reader for my daughter. Since that time I have contacted them ten plus times. Initially I received kind responses - and I sent them all the information they asked for (proof of purchase, prior emails showing that I have been in contact this ENTIRE TIME - 4 years!) but I never received the product. They are no longer responding to my inquiries or requests.
I got a new iPhone this Christmas and to my horror, the NIV bible app is totally different. Everything is moved around. It’s not intuitive. The whole appeal of this app is to play the audio, but the dedicated audio bar is removed... what? The Bible playlist/reading plans don’t load any options at all. It took a couple days to figure out how to restore my purchases. I paid like $70 for the cds and the app combo. I’m not about to pay $20 more for what I already own. Menus and directions are confusing & mislabeled. When you “log in” it says to “create password.” What? I already have a password... If you click on “notes” or “color markers” from the profile tab, there’s no back button or bottom menu. You have to restart to get back to the rest of the app. Back to the audio. I clicked around trying to figure things out and before I knew it, 2 chapters were playing at the same time. Which ones? No clue. I had to close the app and restart. Finally, the new UI is just ugly. Sorry developers. If you were going for “clean” you missed the mark. The drop-down chapter menu is lame. The calendar-looking one was better. And idk who thought that white and blue are modern, sleek colors. It’s like a Unicode blue from BASIC programming (90’s). App developers, I hope you read these reviews because we WANT this app to be amazing. It’s just not. We are disappointed and confused with why you changed it all.
This is the utmost incredible audio Bible that I have ever listen to. Are usually stay away from them because they do not sound authentic or passionate. It includes over 60 voice actors for all of the different characters and relevant sound effects and dramatic music. It truly feels like I am listening to a movie. I LOVE THIS AUDIO BIBLE. The only comparable audio bible is the “Breathe” Audio Bible for the New Living Translation but I like NIV LIVE better. The only complaint is that they recently updated the interface and design of the app and it completely ruined the relatively easy to use design. Really difficult to use now and it is glitchy. Not sure if it has something to do with switching from downloaded content to streaming content (which had been downloaded prior to the app update).
