Ideas for Glo Bible

We need your help to make Glo Bible even better!

Opening multiple passages from various books simultaneously

Will the ability to open multiple passages from various books simultaneously and switch between those be reinstated?  That was also a great feature of the previous version.

    Thanks for your input, we found that the tab feature in the previous slowed the performance of the app and wasn't' optimally designed. We will keep this for future consideration.

    Without doubt, the reason that GloBible was my favorite Bible app was the ability to have several scriptures open at once.  In fact, that is the reason I recommended the app to others. I have not used GloBible since the update, but I check back regularly to see if that feature has been reinstated. Please assure us that you will fix this.

    The tabs was the only reason I used Glo instead of Youversion. Taking it out was a really bad idea. PLEASE reinstate

    The primary reason I use GloBible was the ability to have multiple pages open. I am involved in several studies and keep them all open in the tabs. I still use the old version by turning off the Internet access on my iPad and am still able to get the NIV as well. Please reinstate multiple page option.

    Being able to have several passages open at one time and being able to switch back and forth was one of the features I used the most and what differentiated Glo Bible from other apps. Please bring this back.

    I have found that using the history tab is essentially the same as having multiple tabs open and I am able to switch back and forth between scriptures in much the same way. It just takes a bit of getting used to.

    I so appreciate using Glo to search for topics, key words and common scriptures

    I liked the being able to open various passages and going back to them without having to look them up. If I had known you were going to take this feature out I would have never bought the premium version. While you have the right to make changes I feel taking features out of the app is a step backwards. This app has gone from being the best bible app available to one I no longer use in one update. Really disappointing. You should consider hiring someone else to make your decisions about changing your app.

    Sunday, July 29, 2012 I gave up my old paper version of the Bible and was committed using GloBible as my primary Bible. I carried my iPad to church and to my class while teaching Old Testament at a Christian High school. Giving up my hard copy was difficult thing to do because of my many notes and sermon highlights over the years.


    With GloBible I had no regrets. It helped with documenting my notes and teaching. Everything was saved and easily referenced. My journal from the old GloBible was exactly that, a journal of all my Bible, sermons, study notes from 2012 to this year. I could go there and seek my journal entries with ease.

    Now I am not able to find them. I am sure they are saved somewhere, but they are hidden better an Easter egg.


    I was once GloBible's best supporter and highly recommended to all my friends and students. I cannot do that now. In my opinion, the change was not a good thing. I believe you got it right the first time.

    I have been trying to use the new version for sometime now and I find it wanting. I enjoy the audible reading and that is all I find to be an improvement.


    Please listen to you customers, I would be willing to bet you have not received to reviews you were hoping for. The time, the money, and the effort you have spent trying to improve GloBible should be chalked up as a failed investment.


    Please bring back back the the GloBible that I purchased in 2012. I still have the old app on my iPad

    I could switch tabs instantly, no slow down at all. It seems everything is hidden now. Bible translation, media and commentary all used to be right there. I am trying to read Proverb 8 and can't even get there. It wants to go from 7 to 9.

    VEry very Upset on the look of the new Globible in my Ipad, not appealing at all , loved the one  before but now it is not colorful and pretty like the previous version love the lenses and went from point a to b without any problems, on this one .the paste and  copy really bad does not take it, profile picture can change it, does not take it the change, not able to share and another words very upset with the changes that is not taking me anywhere. LIke someone said it the change went from good to worse...Sorry but it is the true, not recommending that Bible anymore to any of my friends I was so proud of the fantastic look that the previous version had.. There is a lot of version for freee easy to navigate on BIble gate I can pout the same verse in five different versions.. Bring the old version back, that is ther reason many of us paid for...

    Agree with all comments. I don't think I will use the new version

    without the tabs.

    I really liked this feature for when I was preparing for lessons. I could have all of the passages open, in order of how I would use them, before the lesson. I didn't notice a slow down for this feature and I used it on both my iPhone and iPad Pro. I originally started on the NKJV app powered by Glo which still has this feature but it doesn't have all the features of the Glo Bible app.

    It would be great to have all versions of say, Jesus Calming The Storm, side-by-side to compare how each author/book described the event. It might be tricky to do, but man would it be a great tool and so cool.

    I think Logos: Bible study and reading plans app calls this, Text Comparison : Compare Translations Instantly. Have up to 5 translation open on one passage. This would be cool to see in Glo Bible.

    I too VERY MUCH miss the feature of having multiple sessions open - I used it as I was reading thru Psalms, to keep my "place" with our sermon series at church, and with where I am in my personal Bible study.  The new version is also not as "readable" as the old ESV powered by glo app I have always used.  I hope you will reinstate the ability to have multiple pages open at once.  I don't use any of the multimedia stuff at all, so not having this feature makes this app little better than a paper Bible to me.
