Dear WORDsearch Friend, We had hoped to provide you with corrections to the current app, as well as other options to assist you in your Bible study by the end of this week. However, we have experienced a delay in the Apple approval process. As soon as we have additional information to share, we will notify you.

Thanks for your patience and prayers,

Staff Pick – God’s Word for Students

IMG_8223Each week the blog will feature a favorite book of a staff member that’s available on WORDsearch.

My favorite book that I keep returning to in my WORDsearch library is God’s Word for Students by Wayne Rice. Though at first glance this book may not look like much and that it is something for children, I have found practical and Scriptural advice from it daily. Because it is written for students, there is no jargon that you have to wade through, so it delivers a message that is easy to understand and to remember. This devotional always provokes thought in me and makes me want to apply it to my life. I believe that anyone of any age can see the good wisdom in this book and find a way to apply it in your life.  So before you judge a book by its cover, take it from me that sometimes it the small things in life that pack the most wisdom.

A few weeks ago, our department’s supervisor called us into the conference room for a meeting. As we all sat down, she stood up and asked us to tell everyone what we were grateful for about our jobs so she could write it on the whiteboard. Soon the room was filled with the sound of people speaking up—and did I mention that this was a room full of introverted developers?

Staff Pick – Coach Mom

Each week the blog will feature a favorite book of a staff member that’s available on WORDsearch.

Reflecting back a few years ago, I remember thinking I knew everything about being a great parent. I thought I knew all the best techniques for raising happy, smart and well-behaved children, while simultaneously running a clean and efficient household. And then I actually had a child.

After a few sleepless and chaotic months, and one instance of leaving home only to realize en route I was still wearing my fuzzy house slippers, I realized I didn’t know as much as I thought I did about caring for a young child while still managing my day to day life.  It was all much harder than I had ever anticipated it would be.

Progress Update on WORDsearch iPad App

IPadPhoneDear WORDsearch Friend,

About a week ago I wrote you about the troubles we discovered within the new WORDsearchiPad app. I promised to keep you updated on our progress and that is why I’m writing you today.

Our technical team is carefully addressing one issue at a time, strengthening the app and eliminating the issues that sometimes cause problems.The items currently being repaired are:

  • The app crashes upon trying to launch and load books
  • The bug related to the default Bible setting
  • The bug related to syncing panes

We are not yet at the point where we can deliver a new update with all the fixes that need to be in place, but we are making good progress. We are also working on additional fixes and new options to make your experience better in the days ahead, including the ability to copy content from your WORDsearch titles.
