|REVIEW: Proverbs In A Month
Category: Bible/Scripture | Review Added: January 10, 2012
Some apps just don't need to be complicated, and the new app from Audrant Studios for the iPhone called Proverbs In A Month is perfect in its simplicity.
Proverbs In A Month provides the user a daily journey through the book of Proverbs. You can easily move through chapters at the pace of one per day, for 31 days. The app automatically opens to the Proverbs chapter that corresponds to the current day of the month, which is a wonderful feature that allows you to jump right in no matter when you start.
Navigation between days and chapters is as easy as swiping the screen left to right or using the navigation buttons at the bottom of the app.
Each day's chapter is presented on top of backgrounds that match the theme of the chapter. The graphics aren't amazing, but for what the app is, there isn't much need for flash to trumpet substance when it comes to displaying scripture.
The only other setting is the ability to choose the font between Arial, Georgia and TrebuchetMS and clicking on the font name will allow you to also choose the font size (small, medium and large). You can also highlight and copy text to save later or email your favorite verses.
The app is free, so you can't argue with that price! A premium version is in the works and will be available soon for $0.99. It will add various versions, more font options and a landscape reading mode. No word on when that will be available at the time this review was written.
There are a plethora of bible apps available for the iPhone, and many reading plans are available, but it's fun to tackle a book like Proverbs in a month and you'll get a sense of accomplishment when you finish the plan. For someone who looks for different ways to engage themselves in scripture, this is a great option. —Kevin McNeese
