is there a basic user guide for the android mobile app? It drives me crazy. I will use the passage guide and look in a commentary then I can't get back to the passage guide so I have to start over, look at another commentary and then start over again. Repeat .  I found out I have 80 some pages open and I don't know how I did that but I still can't find my passage guide. How does this all work; how can I close all these pages.  Thanks.

There are a few helpful mobile app videos at the support site:

The Using Multiple Resources video doesn’t specifically show how to close a tab, but you can see an X in the upper left corner of the tab which you can use to close it. On iOS, you can also swipe up on a tab to close it. That might also work on Android.

In short, if you close the commentary tab that you opened from the Passage Guide, you’ll be returned to the Passage Guide.

There is also a Mobile FAQ:

Hope that helps!

iOS is Apple's operating system that runs on iPhones and iPads. I understand that you have an Android phone. I don't, and I can't find Android screenshots showing what to do. Sorry!

Perhaps your Android app looks similar to what I see, and the steps will be apparent to you.

1. Tap the tabs icon (which incidentally shows how many tabs you have open):

2. The Multiple Resources view will appear. Tap the X icon to close a tab. In your case, you'd want to close the commentary you finished reading:

3. Press the Done button to return to your Passage Guide.

You can also swipe left and right to navigate between tabs. Your Passage Guide will be one of the tabs that appears there (likely to the immediate left of the commentary that you opened).

If this doesn't help, let us know, and I'll try to get an Android user to provide screenshots.

I’ve just checked on my Android phone and it works exactly as Petah describes
