Customer Reviews

  • Good, could be better.

    by Gggggggggggdhfujffjfdfhgg

    Searches are good but the viewer could be improved. While viewing it would be good if you could see more if you want and if you could see the source. Also a few glitches when you search (order of excerpts changes, different words from search to search of the same thing).

  • Great but could be even Better

    by Jtgmerk

    Love it. I would to be able to browse the books like the online version

  • Amazing application

    by Shiidon

    This app does what it sets out to do. It is easy to use and is a handy resource when trying to find specific qoutes. Highly recommend.

  • Power

  • Goodness gracious that is good.

    by secretgardenman

    I loved it. It helps me find religious text in a jiffy. Without this software my wife wouldn't be pregnant with our fourth child right now.

  • Excellent!

    A must-have for any student of world religions.

  • Amazing Interfaith App!

    by DJ P-Funk

    Thanks, Ian, for such a great app! I am sure it will be streamlined with future updates to work a few of the kinks out. Great first version!

  • Great easy to use mobile resource!

    by wcoolnet

    Thank you for all the work you guys put into developing this great mobile resource.

  • Worst App ever

    by mattfourcf

    One star is too much. I should give it 0 stars. This is the worst app ever. There are not complete books available to choose from, just excerpts from the same work which do not reflect any of the wisdom traditions optioned. I'd say this is a terrible way to convey the beliefs of this tradition if that is the actual purpose of it.

  • Not currently working on iPhone

    by freakyjoon

    New problem...the search results and reading panes are mega collapsed on my iPhone and thus I can't use it. Please fix!!!

  • Good start, needs browsing and persistence

    by Bill Baker

    More often than searching, I want to read a book or passage, and I'd rather use a browsing interface (tree structure with religion - author - book - chapter). Also, when i leave and return to the app, it would be nice if it kept my place.

  • nice, but limiting

    by zimboina2

    nice and simple interface. unfortunately, the writings won't get downloaded onto the device, that means that one always has to have internet access every time one wants to use this app. thus limiting the very purpose of the ipod.

  • Useful but limited

    by fojoo

    After purchasing I was disapointed to learn that the full works are not included. "Includes over 5000 books and documents" is all but saying that these works are included in their entirety, which is very misleading. The app description would benefit, I think, from more transparency.

  • Try Baha'i searches for very practical spiritual guidance for common human problems.

    by BarbaraBe

    I love having these Holy writings available to me quickly throughout the day. I'd like to know how to continue reading past the excerpt. Thanks.

  • misnamed

    by bill hrt

    Unless I'm missing something only has Bahai faith quotes. Samples were the same for what ever faith i chose.....
