Learn More About New Features in iOS App


If you have updated your app from the Apple store, you’ll notice that it has a new look, including a re-designed home screen with better views of your personal library. You can learn more about each book, organize your books into different collections, and have your app open to the last book you were reading. It also includes improved cross-reference tools and searching within text, so that each search is saved after you look at the results.


Check out some of the new features available in the update.

Collections NEW

You can now limit your home screen to see different collections of books for easier referral. You can choose to either see All Books, Recently Read, Archived, Downloaded and Not Downloaded. To do this, tap All Books at the top of your home screen, and select the option of which books you would like to see.


Book Information NEW

To easily read a book’s description in your library, simply tap the Book Information icon, and you will be able to read the details about the book. If the book is not downloaded, you will also see the option to Download, and if you have already downloaded the book, you see the options of Read Now or Archive (to add to your Archive collection).


Back to Reading – NEW

Anytime you are on the home screen or in settings, you will see a bar at the bottom of the screen that says Back to Reading, with your most recent previously read book listed underneath. To open your book, simply tap the bar and it will take you right back to where you last left off.


More Options in Settings – NEW

Instead of having to search through your library every time you open the app, you can turn on the app’s new option of defaulting to open the app in the last book you had opened. This saves time and gets you back into your book with no distractions.

What do you think of the new update?


  1. So far so good, except I wish that the audio worked in the ‘ that’s easy for you to say’.

  2. I have switched over from Android to iOS for tablet use. The new iPad app is greatly improved. WS would be my go to Bible App if category folders where available for notes and bookmarks. Category folders would let me go to notes or bookmarks easier and quicker that scrolling through every note or bookmark.

    I have a question regarding my NIV translation. When I click on it to use, why does it pop up as a different window; and says continue reading in the HCBS, when I select it and is not available in “Your Translations”?

    Thanks for any help on this matter.
