Enjoying my reading list and highlighting on my new iPad. Here are a few suggestions to improve the app navigation:

  1. Offer an option to go to the start of a chapter instead of verse 1. That way we can see introductory material. With all the screen real estate on the iPad, I'd like to see the chapter number, a Psalm of David, and then verse 1.
  2. Ability to move up or down one verse like in desktop version. Sometimes a passage I want to highlight breaks across screens, and there is currently no elegant way to deal with that. 
  3. An option for panes to be side by side in portrait mode as well as landscape mode. This would be a much better option for different languages than top and bottom.
  4. Highlight by selecting the desired color without having to click done; wastes a step if you're changing colors and doesn't take any more effort for the same color since you have to click something anyway.
  5. Away to access favorite books without going to a saved location. That way book would open to whatever passage was synced last on whichever platform.

Thanks,

Stuart

Awesome suggestions!

Perhaps a smooth scrolling option (similar to scrolling up and down in Biblia for example) would be the best way to deal with #2 - it would also improve synchronisation behaviour when working in split-screen mode.

The only downside that I can see to scrolling currently is that it would render the "up-swipe" gesture non-operational. I'd propose a "tap & hold" on the verse number (rather than side-swipe) to bring up options like passage guide. This would leave the side-swipe gestures free for switching between resources - I think it would be awesome to have the Bible open in one screen, then side-swipe and immediately view a resource (perhaps a commentary) at the same location, and just side-swipe back to return to the Bible!

The icing on the cake would be to make offline resources perform significantly quicker!

cheers, dave
