When scrolling view is turned off... on iOS when I swipe down it brings up the top and bottom menu. on android swiping down does nothing and I have to tap the screen to bring up the top and bottom menu. I would like android to work like iOS because on android I often accidentally tap on a link instead of a non link area which results in something other than the menus appearing.

When trying to get to passage guide... on android I select passage guide and a verse menu appears. on iOS I have to tap the exact verse then passage guide goes right to the verse. I would like iOS to work like android because I have fat fingers and sometimes it’s hard to tap the right verse.

I am curious why the inconsistency between versions. But I would greatly appreciate it if these were resolved.

I assume that they are different because of differences in OS guidelines.

I am not sure of the last east releases but at one point there was a list of functional differences and there was features unique to each platform. I am sure that alabama24 is right in that differing environments probably make certain things easier.
