How does this work?
Clicking the “Test drive now” button launches a copy of this app on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), a web service that provides on-demand compute capacity in the cloud for developers. When you interact with the simulated phone using your mouse and keyboard, we send those inputs over the Internet to the app running on Amazon EC2 — just like your mobile device would send a finger tap to the app. Our servers then send the video and audio output from the app back to your computer. All this happens in real time, allowing you to explore the features of the app as if it were running on your mobile device.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank You Crossway! March 1, 2012
Verified Purchase
A big word of thanks to Crossway for putting this out for free. I have used it on my iPad and now, with its most recent updates, it is a treasure to use on my new Samsung Infuse (Android). I love the user interface, clean, uncluttered, and efficient. There are just enough settings to tweak to get the software comfortable without getting bogged down and distracted by being in the settings instead of in the Word. The software itself is light weight and doesn't drag down my device, runs nice and stable, doesn't crash, just a real blessing. I highly recommend this excellent translation and this excellent presentation of it. Thank you Crossway! Sola Deo gloria!

4.0 out of 5 stars Works great after reinstalling December 16, 2011
By GeeDave
Verified Purchase
Using with Kindle fire, looks and works great, except it pretty much always crashes on starting. After restart, which takes all of 2 seconds, very solid. Definitely easier to navigate than the Kindle book versions, though I hope it will also be updated wth the study notes and maps.

UPDATE: Did a reinstall of the app and the crash problem is gone.

5.0 out of 5 stars I switched to ESV from NKJV after using the ESV December 1, 2012
Verified Purchase
I have a number of translations and so far the ESV impresses me the most. The translators have ensured that this is both easy to read and stands up well to in depth Bible study. The ESV is easier to understand than the NKJV and more faithful to scripture than NIV (especially with the 2011 gender confused NIV-see the article by the Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood on their website). I use this translation for most of my daily reading and I always use it as the primary translation when I teach.

4.0 out of 5 stars ESV Bible October 5, 2012
Verified Purchase
I purchased this so that I would have an available Bible Ap on my Kindle (and not be restricted by WiFi!) I find it a great resource! The format is a little cumbersome as you have to return to the content page to switch books, but not a major problem for a nice free Bible!

The English Standard Version of the Bible is a good translation. I found it easier to navigate between books, chapters and verses than other e-versions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kindle Fire Needs Red Letter option, and audio. November 28, 2011
Verified Purchase
I give it 5 stars because I like the ESV translation. But this app needs to offer the Red Letter options. Also an audio option would be great. But the words of Christ in Red option is a must have for the Kindle fire. Add these options in, and this would be the best app.

3.0 out of 5 stars ESV Bible app difficulties May 17, 2013
Verified Purchase
I like the options to highlight and add my own notes. It would be better if the app allowed the notes box to move and not block the text. It would also be better if the text could enlarge and also be viewed consecutively instead of only one chapter at a time. It is also difficult to switch between passages.
