To quote Pastor David Jeremiah…"GOD LOVES YOU, HE ALWAYS HAS AND HE ALWAYS WILL" - The Bible Glo deserves 10 stars as it is the most valuable Bible format I have used. The photographs, artwork and maps brings the Bible so ALIVE. Having all the visual resources assists me to imagine to the best of my capacity to really experience the Gospel. Being able to use this Bible Glo app with not only my MacBook Pro but as well with my other devices and the significance of not only being able to travel anywhere and have your Bible tucked away safe where ever I go, but because of its capability to sync with all my mobile devices keeps me focused and on tract. WAY TO GO BIBLE GLO!!!
Force Fed - I’ve tried for a year to like this Bible but this is a heavily biased application towards one particular faith. Upon study it pays credit to locations, documentation, theology etc that are not technically accurate, but traditional and based on one particular faith. It then discredits other locations, documentation and theological material even thou they are more technically accurate. Read the foot notes of the garden tomb then read the foot notes holy sepulcher for one example. Bible states Christ Tomb was outside the Gate and wall. This would make the Garden Tomb a more viable location. Yet this app states the traditional holy sepulcher ( located inside the wall ) as accurate and the Garden Tomb is not. There is a consistant bias throughout this app. Not useful for an honest unbiased theological study. Its a fanciful app. Attractive to the eye. Impressive on the surface but disingenuous in content. Lots of milk and no meat. P.S. Recently, the foot note has been changed to be even more disingenuous. Stating it was once outside the wall. Having surveyed and visited this site many times the church of the holy sepulcher is in the heart of Hadrian’s city and well within the Old City walls which were built by Sultan Suleyman in 1538. Everyone should research this themselves using a separate source. There are far more accurate and Biblical applications available. This one is misleading on many fronts.

Gives beautiful, well-designed, powerful, fast access to the World of the Bible - I’m puzzled by the negative reviews. Their strident tone makes me suspicious of their motives. My own experience with this app is 100% positive, based on dozens of hours spent using the first module, which gives splendid, nearly breath-taking access to the Bible itself. I find the beauty, design, and functioning of the app to be far superior to any other bible app, and I have purchased and used at least a dozen of them. Since finding Bible Glo Premium, it have made it my “go to” app for the text of the Bible and for the excellent accompanying notes. It offers five English translations of the Bible. My personal preference is for the NIV version and notes. I consider this app a particular treasure which I heartily recommend to anyone who wants to experience the beauty and power of the Bible. This app delivers better than any other app I know.
Would be great if it actually worked - This is an amazing app if it actually worked and the IT department actually cared that it crashes upon startup each and every time. You can only use it offline mode which means that many of the features are not usable. I have submitted several service requests but they don’t seem to have any interest in fixing it. Really sad. For now stay away from this app and look elswhere.
Worth every dollar. - The Glo bible software is not only immersive and captivating it is visually accurate to the word of God in it’s entirety.
Not great - I've been a long time iPad user, and I only use this app occasionally on the Mac now. I'm disappointed that it doesn't even have the option to display in night mode on the desktop, as there is the option on the iPad. STILL, after many updates, the bug where it shows highlighting in odd places when switching between translations has not been fixed. You have to be in the translation that you highlighted in to see correct highlight locations. In addition, if we paid full price for the app, it would be nice to have a full app on the iPad. Ridiculous that it's not ported completely over. There is no reason for this.
Fantastic yet disheartening... - I've been using Glo Bible since 2011 and think it is a fantastic application! It is arguably one of the best Bible applications of its kind out there! But I'm very disheartened by the lack of OS X support, and that disappointment continues to grow… I would love nothing more than to give Glo Bible 5 stars (which it truly deserves). But the fact remains that the OS X version of this application has not been updated in roughly a year 1/2, and is prone to frequent crashing (especially when attempting to sync journal notes and bookmarks). Syncing performance was poor in later releases of OS X Mavericks, and since the release of OS X Yosemite, repeat crashing due to syncing issues essentially renders this application useless. With the release of OS X El Capitan drawing closer, and no news (at this point and time) from the developer signaling support for it, I would encourage you to wait a bit longer for a possible update, or purchase the IOS version which works fine. Otherwise (dare I say it) consider an alternative. But I really hope an update is forthcoming, because this really is an awesome application (when it works).
