Bookmarking and other tips

Member of the AppleVis Blog Team

I really appreciate finally knowing how to set a bookmark in this app. Thanks. However, I found a quicker way than swiping right to the end of the chapter. After you double-tap the verse, do a 4-finger single tap on the bottom half of the screen. Then swipe left a few times to quickly get to the bookmark button.

Now, if I could just find a way to jump to a bookmarked verse quickly. Seems like I have to go to "open menu", then find my bookmarks under my profile, then double-tap the bookmark at least twice, but then it displays only the bookmarked verse, so I have to swipe past that and finally double-tap on Read Full Chapter. Argh.

Another tip: When you double-tap on the book and chapter button and you get a list of all the books in the bible, I find that a 3-finger swipe up or down to scroll through the list is a much quicker way to find the book I want.

Finally, for me, the Previous and Next Chapter buttons can be found quickly by dragging around to either the middle left edge or middle right edge. I with I could just 3-finger swipe right or left, but that does not seem to work.

And wouldn't it be nice if the verse numbers were headings? Then I could rotor to headings and quickly jump through the chapter until I reached the verse I was looking for.

Thanks again for the podcast. Keep up the good work.
