We need your help to make Glo Bible even better!
We will be moving forward with iOS, android, and web, instead of the desktop architectures due to the changing landscape of where people are accessing software. Sorry to disappoint we have limited resources and can only focus on the places where most people are. That being said, when we launch the web platform you'll be able to sync up on the web and on your phone just like you did with your Mac.
It would be nice if you release the app in the Windows Store. You can release both, the new Universal Apps and the "old" Win32 apps in the Windows Store.
I understand the thinking behind mobile for the bottom line. My two cents is that the desktop app allows a more engaging interface with things like maps that made it magical to use. It was the reason I spent $35 on it.
Some of old foggies still use computers as well as handheld devices. PLEASE provide a computer app also
I'm really disappoint it taht I do not have my desktop option anymore if I new that will happen I never buy this product, love to sue it via both ways desktop and Ipad, the look is really ugly the other platform was more enganging and now trying to share a verse i like I donot know if I did it or not the verse does not stay highlighted and unless you go to where you want to share then either you find a blank page(facebook) or the text in Twitter or Google+ but also there is no option to share with instagram or Pinterest, we going backwards sorry but I'm really unhappy with this new look in my Ipad.. Get it back the way it was..
I am on my Mac 9 times out of 10 over my phone when reading my Bible and needing reference materials and such. I wish there was a a go fund me campaign to bring back said desktop application. I bought the app just prior to the shift and like the look of the new mobile and was hoping for an update on the desktop. Looks like I am back on the prowl for a new cross platform app.
i bought bible 360 for $35 a while back because i liked all the context i was getting when i bought it . i have been waiting for the windows computer app to be released . i read the bible with bible 360 on my computer .i don't have a smart phone or Ipad to access all the new items/context.
Glo Bible is a research Bible tool, not only a Bible for reading purposes like (youversion). Having it on the desktop allows serious research to be done, because it is all about screen size. This is why educational institutions around the world are now limiting the smallness of the screen size (usually requires greater than 11")
If you are desiring this to be a Bible RESEARCH TOOL, this is going directly against the most recent flow of IT tools being used for that purpose.
If you are desiring this to be a Bible reading tool, then you are in direct competition with YouVersion, which would be just plain crazy. We don't need another Bible reader, we need a serious study tool.
I'm glad to see that this is in the planned phase. While I agree that the new version is more beautiful, it is far less functional. Since the new version came out I have abandoned it for other Bible apps, but have kept it on my device holding out hope for the features of the previous version to be restored. I'm excited to access the previous version on my mobile devices as that's the version I bragged about to others. Any projected date on when this will be released?
I think one comment summed up what I have to say the best:
"Glo Bible is a research Bible tool"
By making Glo Bible simply a Bible reader, you have taken away all the resources and research tools that set it apart. What set Glo Bible apart from other Bible research apps or software, is that the UI was beautiful and well designed, so anyone could use it. I could show my son a map of where Joseph and Marry traveled to the inn. I could show my wife a work of art that illustrated a certain story. I could easily bring up a topic to go over in my small group. Now all of that is gone. It was the artwork, the maps and the topics that brought the Bible to life for my family, it made it seem real, like it happened in our world, in an actual place in time. Now all of that is gone.
There are tons of Bible reading apps and Glo Bible will surely get lost in the sea of them - they are a dime-a-dozen. The world doesn't need another reprint of the Bible - Bibles are everywhere. What is desperately needed are historical examples: maps, artwork, archaeological studies, to show that what is in the Bible really happened and is not just another myth story like many claim it is. A "reader" has no proof it really happened, a research tool does.
I understand that mobile is accessible by everyone, but can't you do both? A desktop app with researcher tools for those that want to study the Bible, and a Bible reading app for the casual reader on-the-go? Seems like everyone would be reached then. It would be a great marriage of both worlds with the compatibility to sync.
any update on the web app?
