NET Bible (Formerly Lumina) Reviews

    One think I would like to see fixed.

    I love the app and it is one of the best resources I have. I especially like the translator's notes as well as the study notes. One thing that is a minor annoyance on the iPad and iPhone apps is that when a verse is highlighted, the page normally changes and it is necessary to go to the other page to highlight any additional verses. Sometimes this happens more than once when trying to highlight a passage. Like I said, I really like the app overall, but this is something I would really like to be fixed in a future update. It's the only thing that kept me from giving a 5 star rating.

    Pretty good

    Very friendly design, very readable, and good notes. There are some visual quirks/flickers, and UI is funny in some areas, but overall one of the best Bible apps in the App Store. Only wish you could space out the line height for better readability.

    It’s great to have the NET translation with Notes on my phone. The app is great, especially when one considers that it is free, after all. As others have mentioned, the one drawback is the handling of the notes. Since the extensive notes are one of the main draws of the NET, it would be better if there was a way to have the notes accessible in a better way than the pop-up form, like a separate area of the screen or something. But again. Free app, and everything else is elegant and intuitive.

    Love the version

    Love the version. Love the app and the features but it quit letting me select a book of the Bible. It would only let me select the current book I was in and a chapter of that book. Please fix this as it is my favorite to use out of about 10 different Bible apps that I have. This inability to select a book keeps me from using it all together and I have to choose a different app. I rebooted and that didn’t help so I deleted the app and reinstalled. I didn’t want to have to do that because I had multiple notes and highlights that were very important to me as I am an avid student of the Bible.

    This is a fantastic app for intense bible study!

    There are many things to love about this app. All the text notes are absolutely awesome, but one of my favorite features of the app is the page turning effect. It feels like I’m turning the page on a physical bible. I LOVE that feature! I’m a person who uses multiple different translations for deeper study. It’s awesome to add this to my ebook library. Highly Recommended! P.S. - I would love a “words of Christ in red” feature on a future update of the app. Thank you!

    A must have app for bible students

    This translation is my second favorite behind the NRSV since it's hard to find a readable, accurate mid-functional translation. The OT is translated w/o interpretation from the NT. And done so by Protestant evangelicals no less! Talk about an trans. honest to the text & not theology. And don't get me started on the fairly neutral( though sometimes conservative) notes! So helpful and informative! Only drawback is the lackluster psalms. If they update the poetry some more & this may be my first choice Bible.

    Problems with the new update

    I have been using this app for almost a year on my iPad Pro. I enjoy using the NET Bible in hard copy. To have it, along with all the notes, on the iPad is a great resource! However, after the most recent update the search function no longer works. I can navigate text fine, the notes are all there, but when I click the search magnifying glass icon the app crashes. Please fix this and this app will be back at five stars!

    So much easier to understand

    This app is great, i can adjust the font , bookmark . I now tale an interest in reading the bible in a more modern form of the english language. People say they only read the kJV and its the best, well the best would be if you could read the original hebrew, greek and armaic . Reading this bible is better then not reading another bible that you struggle to understand.

    Poor Layout for Reading NET Bible notes

    This would be a good tool for accessing the NET Bible notes, which most of the time are unique and excellent notes. BUT, the box that appears and shows the notes IS SO SMALL its better to just go online and read them. It would be better if you could split the screen and have the scripture text on one side and the notes on the other, instead of having to read them in these tiny pop up boxes. Until then, I will be just using the online page.

    Favorite Bible app not compatible yet with iPhone XR

    Love this app and all the notes in it. My I Phone XR with the notch in top covers the drop down menu so I can’t look up specific verses anymore, but only use search. I put 5 stars because I figure you’re working on the problem and will update the app soon, right?

    NET Bible on iPhone

    I have used the printed version of NET Bible for years before finally downloading the App. The App is wonderful, taking the awesome NET Bible translation and then using mobile to modernize its use. The ease of use is great. The interface is uncluttered and smooth. And the translation with excellent translator notes are all here. I highly recommend it!

    Great Translation & App

    This App lets you turn off chapter, verse and note numbers. Doing so allows you to read The NET Bible in reader mode. Also has the ability to make your own notes and bookmarks that will sync across all your devices. Night mode too. Great Translation and great App.

    Best Chess App around

    Best chess app I've found, with a trainer that actually gives good thought out suggestions rather than just random moves. The tutor had suggestions leading to combinations 3 or 4 moves deep. You can actually learn by keeping the tutor on and thinking through why it's suggesting that move.

    What happened?

    Before Lumina there was the NET app until the other day all of scripture disappeared unless you searched for a particular spot. So I downloaded Lumina since it comes from the same people. This morning again. No scripture unless you search. Please, I really liked NET version with the brown highlighted explanations was so much better to see. Why mess with a good thing? God help them! And me. Bless you because it is still better than other bible apps

    A wealth of understanding!

    I love this! It's much better than the you version app. It opens immediately and is super easy to navigate. The footnotes are incredible and offer such a deep well of understanding. Bonus: the way you turn the pages on it is just so cool.
