Ideas for Glo Bible

We need your help to make Glo Bible even better!

Why no Windows app? I used to love it on my older windows pc.

There are plenty of people who use windows 10 and Microsoft Windows OS phones

    I bought a Glo Bible Premium and honestly I just bought it because of my laptop so that whenever we have Bible study I can refer to it. But now I cannot use it. Hopefully you will restore the desktop/laptop with suitable for Windows 10. Its good that you improved the Glo Bible into IOS and Android, however; it limits us in using the apps. Please consider again the desktop/laptop.

     

    Additional suggestion is that, if you can make it usable even no internet connection for those who bought GLO Bible Premium, (I'm also a user), so that  we won't have problems using it without internet, since we already bought legit copy. Thank you and God bless.

    I have a work iPhone 7 so I decided to use one of my Glo Premium accounts and give this a try. I was surprised as this is not as bad as I thought and the instructions were good. I have both a iPhone 7 and a Microsoft 950 and will I use the phones for email and texting...and of course an occasional phone call. I still prefer my desktop to do my actual work on and even texting.

    As I have stated in my previous post I am not a fan of mobile first and with the Windows 10 making it easy to bridge mobile devices to my tablet this just doesn't make sense to me. The original version is well laid out just had bugs that needed fixed.

    I will continue to use the desktop to use Glo Bible as long as I can since it is a much better layout that any mobile version can offer. I am hoping the web based version will be like the desktop version with everything laid out in front of me. Again I am not happy with the web based option due to being limited when I can use it as I like camping and being outside or simply having no access to the internet.

    I do agree that with the subscription option, I have Microsoft Office 365, Adobe Photoshop both with monthly subscriptions but again these are desktop applications first.

    You have done a great job with the mobile app just need to keep in mind your real success will come with a desktop application for both Windows and iOS devices first then mobile second.

    As seen in the attachments the program works in great on Windows 10...except for the maps when you zoom in but that is on your end I believe.

    I have not seen the newer version but from what I have read this is not going well. You have the best overall Bible program so please reconsider going back to the older version.

    Glo Premium with disk fully downloaded so I can use without internet.

    I also will never use my phone for such a wonderful program, if I want to the Bible using my phone I use another program but to study, take notes, and study guide I use the desktop version. I am currently using Windows 10 successfully running GloBible (full version, used disk to download to my Surface tablet). This works using the compatibility settings.

    I have read that a web based program is coming for desktop users is being worked on but again this will not work for me as it is limiting me to be connected to the internet for it to work?

    I disagree with the vison of mobile first as this is only a phase and short term due to the limitations of mobile phones. With Apple, Google, and Microsoft going to universal apps this shows the need for desktop apps are more important than apps on mobile phones.

    Personally I see apps for the phones as nothing more than an abbreviated version of the full program, compare Adobe Photoshop desktop to the app version...no comparison.

    As noted in the link below the future will is going to full version programs available anywhere.

    Please reconsider the vision for this wonderful program.

     

    Thank you,

    I Purchased a windows application and it was way better to study on my laptop than on the IPAD. would rather have windows application back and supported rather than a Webapp where i would depend on internet connectivity.

    Would love to see a Windows app that can run on the Xbox as well. :) Reading a 60" bible is much nicer than a 6" one. Also, wonderful for bible study!

    I understand you have limited resources, but why do you create specific apps for mobile, and then fall back to web for desktop use.  Don't get me wrong, a web app is okay, but why not create a real windows universal app for a first rate experience on the desktop as well, and as a bonus get windows mobile thrown in?

    The Glo app for PC/Mac is no longer supported, I apologize for any inconvenience this causes. We have updated the Glo app for iOS and Android devices and can be download from their respective app stores. Our developers are planning on a web based version of Glo that would be released down the road.

    The program worked when I first purchased it on Windows 7 but not since. I tried to purchase a recent copy of GloBible on the internet but nothing happens. Very frustrating.

    I have to agree with the others. Please implement a modern desktop app. Yes, the GloBible Premium many of bought on DVD-ROM still works if you install it, but returning active support for a Windows app would be great, and I think it should be a high priority. And when I say a Windows app, I mean a UWP app. There's no reason to build on the old Win32 platform at this point. (People using Windows 8.1 or earlier can continue to use the old program or the web app.) Overall, I love GloBible - otherwise I wouldn't even be here. Thanks, guys.
