    I think Glo needs to make some administrative changes because   This obviously wasn't well thought out... I pray that's yous humbly admit this was a failure and bring back The app that "truly made the Bible come to life" this is just so sad.. I can't believe yous are saying that these features "already exist" really!?

    All of the extra features I have purchased are no longer here.  I am very disappointed in this "new" version.  You should refund my premium membership fees.

    I am very disappointed  in this new version!  I've had Glo since 2010 and I still have that version on my older laptop.  I was looking for a more robust version for Windows 10 but it's mobile now???  I have paid for the premium version which had a lot more features (4 bible versions), virtual tours, the lenses were AWESOME.  You really destroyed this once great product.  As a former product manager from one of the world's largest software company, you should EOL this product and build on the version that was existent for the laptop...THAT'S what we were looking for.  Not this garbage.

    It maybe there but not viewable in the same view as the passage. And, not sorted by relation to the current passage. Old version was way better in every way. New version not an improvement.

    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

    Ii have to agree with others.  The older version was far superior.

    Glo is still a good Bible resource, but it was a GREAT Bible study resource.  Previously, Glo was the BEST study tool I've ever found... bar none!  While the new app is sleek and less glitchy, it is far inferior to what we had in the old version.  The amazing connections to rich multimedia that made the Bible come alive to me is a fraction of what it used to be.  Look up the multimedia/study note connected to the parable of the sower, the story of Daniel, any reference to the temple and the wealth of life changing archeology, pictures, NIV notes and virtual tours are no longer connected.  Most pics are still in the massive, non-searchable library, but in an alpha list where unless you remember what the pics were titled, you can't find them. 

    Please, bring back the rich connections that have been lost, the NIV study notes & the Message translation.  I used to show anyone who loved the Word the app and many of my friends downloaded it.  Now, I have a hard time showing them it's worth because so much of its power has been lost. At a minimum, add search ability to the multimedia.  Please.

    What used to be the best bible app available is now practically worthless. Whoever convinced you this was an improvement needs to be fired. Such a shame and it's so disappointing to have "lost" what I used to love.

    Please let us know if there is a way to see all features at once such as notes, maps, pictures while the Bible is open as in the old version.

    I still don't have access to my premium account. It states I'm a "standard" user. I miss the "In his steps videos"!! Please help!'

    Why change what was ok? I liked being able to locate books tight away. Now I have to go through a long process. Not helpful while I'm at church and have to find something fast. Will have to find another app that's more user friendly, sorry!

    Please go back to the original version. If isn't broke don't fix it.  The new version is horrible!

    I just don't understand why you would mess with what was already an excellent product. This new version is so rudimentary! Really a step down from the previous version. Scratching my head here...and looking elsewhere for my Bible study helps!

    Contrary to the "already exists" marker on this suggestion, the new app does not include all the old features. Please for all that is holy bring back the old interface.

    In His Steps videos are available under the glo button, maps are available under the glo button and everything else is being added there as well over the next few months, please be patient!

    I know just one thing. There are so many errors that I wish I could find another version of a digital Bible. I can, but they aren't very satisfactory. I really liked the Glo Bible. I don't think I have the "new" version. But I no longer have the maps which were good and I still have to put up with the errors that have existed since I downloaded the Glo Bible a few years ago. I purchased the premium version, but now it is no longer anything I would call premium. Now I fear losing my journal or notes  or whatever it is called. To those of you who work very hard to bring us this digital Bible, I forgive you for your imperfections as I am sure you forgive me for my criticism.

    Bring back the original version that attracted us to purchase the wonderful study bible in the first. The original version set GloBible apart from other bibles. Now YouVersion has become my go to mobile App.

    This is the first time I am using the map features in months, because I started a detailed study program instead of reading.....  

    WHERE ARE ALL THE FEATURES THAT PREVIOUSLY EXISTED?????   To say these already exist on my PC is simply untruthful and definitely false advertising to potential buyers.

  • Joshua Glazebrook commented

    This is simply untruthful Glo.....    This does NOT already exist.  

    The NEW Windows App has:

    1a) Bible

    2a) Media --- Broken into Photos and Artwork....


    The NEW Android App is much the same as the NEW Windows App, except that it has Bible Reading Plans and Commentaries thrown in..


    The OLD Windows PC App has:

    1b) Bible

    2b) Media ---- Broken into Photos, Artwork, Virtual Tours, Animated Maps and Interactive Documentaries.

    3b) Topical  ---   Topical Study map divided into sections.

    4b) Atlas  ---  Probably heavily linked to the interactive Maps in point 2b above. But these maps were searchable.

    5b) Timeline --- Interactive Timeline feature (from Creation to John Dies on Patmos Island

    6b) MyGlo --- Which had a Journal, Create your own Bible Reading Plan feature.


    The OLD also has a create your own Bible Reading Plan Feature that the NEW and supposedly improved Windows App does not.


    I would suggest that the person that said these features """already exists""" really does NOT know the differences in the features of the OLD from the NEW.

    Bring back the Old GLO BIBLE please, is was such a pleasure to read the bible with it, this new one is as in-inspiring as the other bible version apps.  I've enjoyed the old version for the past 4-5 years, and have read the bible from cover to cover with that version - I feel sick at the thought of losing it.  we need the old
