Hi, I love this program so you know from the start!  I really appreciate what you guys are doing and continuing to do to make this the best Bible application ever!  However, I am having some issues with seeing the red letter text on the application.  Also, the Strong's definitions are not showing up at all.  When I turn that feature on, I don't see any difference in the application.  So, it seems like these two options are making no difference on the application.  I have deleted the application and reinstalled it and have tried as many things as I could think of but to no avail.  Any suggestions?

If you tap on a strongs number and the definition does not pop up, it means you did not get a full download of the strongs dictionary.  Here's what solves that:

  1. Go to the bookshelf and swipe your finger over the Bible (NASS or KJVS)
  2. Tap to delete it
  3. Download it again
  4. WAIT a minute or two after the download completes (the strongs dictionary and translation notes are downloaded in the background after the main Bible download completes)

That always does the trick (at least it has in every case I've seen so far.)

I'm not sure what you mean about seeing red letter text -- but that can be turned off in the Settings page if you prefer.

I appreciate the advise.  I'll try that and see if that works.  As far as the red letter text, I would like it enabled.  I have enabled that setting in my settings option, however, the text does not display in red (when Jesus speaks in the new testament).  Any thought as to why that would not work when enabled?

Maybe you're not aware that only certain Bible editions have red lettering.  That's probably the problem.  For example, KJV does not have it.  KJVR, KJVA, and KJVS do.  NASB and NASS do, but NKJV does not.  It all depends on what the publishers provide us.
