    I absolutely love the ESV version and the app has a very simple setup. It is having problems glitching though, which is frustrating

    I love this app and have been using it on all my devices.

    Could be a bit faster. And occasionally hops around when scrolling. But thanks for supporting the Windows Phone platform! Love my ESV translation.

    Needs improvement. There are many glitches. I wish that it would update as much as the apple and android version.

    Horribly disappointed. I have this same app on an my Apple devices and it's far better. Windows version is almost useless. Horribly glitchy and hardly any features that are on the Apple version. Not a whole lot that can be done in this Windows version. I'd like to see this app stepped up...way up. :-(

    This app has its pros and cons. Pro: Good text, the UI is pretty and functional when working. Local storage is used, so no data connection is needed to use. Cons: Formatting errors abound. The app's UI is slow and buggy. Since upgrading my phone to Windows Phone 8.1, I have had to uninstall and reinstall the app several times after it became nonfunctional. Overall I would say this app could be the YouVersion killer if a few steps are taken. 1. Fix the performance and formatting issues. 2. Provide study tools. 3. Allow for linking to Crossway accounts. Really, I'll say this. If an ESV Study Bible app were to come to Windows Phone, I would buy it. //edit: When I reach the end of Revelation the app quits working. It will just force close everytime I open it. Please fix!

    I have been looking for a quality Bible app for Windows Phone, and I stumbled upon this version, which is just like my Bible at home. Best of all, it's free and does not require my pictures for no reason. Thank you, and may God bless you, Crossway! Godspeed to your company! An update: Still a great app, just a bug report or something confusing me: In Psalms 37, some of the verses such as 5 and 8 have the incorrect letter for the cross-references. Example: In verse 5, it references on the first line using letter "d," while the second line references using letter "z." Another update: Psalms 42:6 part 1 needs a space after the period. Another update: Psalms 48:2 part 1 needs a space after the comma between the words "elevation" and "is." Here's another update: Mark 6:3 has the name "Joses," which should be "Joseph."
