5.0 out of 5 stars "Justified Resentments" showing May 6, 2013
I have noticed quite a few complaints about there being a charge for this app. When AAWS gives up its foolish quest to reinvent the ebook with its ridiculous "A.A. eReader App" which works only with some apple devices and only with the Big Book and the 12&12 (thereby offering us something as useful as Mr. Huff has created), when the cost of addiction rehab falls below a thousand bucks a day, when every AA who can afford to do so practices the Seventh Tradition and therefore puts a buck in the basket, when the justice system decides that addiction is a disease rather than a crime, and when everyone else decides never to attempt to profit from addiction recovery: THEN (but NOT before) will I try to muster a little righteous indignation against Mr. Huff for selling this terrific little app for a buck ninety-nine! Meanwhile, I really recommend that you buy this app. It is cheap, goes anywhere, has a great search feature, works on apple and android devices, and other things which makes it outstanding! Thank you Mr. Huff. Now, where is the 12&12 Companion, with all the same features? Oh Yeah, AAWS still holds a copyright on it.

Since this app is not through AA World Service, I hesitated to purchase it. That was just silly!! Dean Huff really does a wonderful job (can't beat the $) of putting everything you need for addiction support on a mobile device! I am super pleased and very grateful for having all this at my fingertips!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value and so convenient February 7, 2013
Verified Purchase
I chose this for my Kindle fully aware that this is not the 4th edition of the Big Book. I have standard paper copies of that. This is plenty good for when I just want to climb into bed at night and read. Having this and my "Daily Reflections" readily available, and easy to take wherever I want works well for me.

Search any word, idea, phrase and there it is, page number and all. Perfect for referencing an idea in the book for those times I need guidance or if I need to prepare to share the message and not the mess! I love AA and I love the big book, this little app is a wonderful companion, indeed!

Having the whole Big Book of AA at your fingertips is wonderful - it means you always have it and you don't have to carry the book copy when you travel. The only problem I ran into was not being able to bookmark pages - but otherwise its great.

This is great to have on your Kindle or phone when you don't want to carry a BY or 12&12. It is only the first 164 pages, but with the 12 &12, nice to have something.
