I purchased the product to work on memory verses. The effort to get from one verse to another quickly was more than I expected. There's a list of things I would love for this product to do for me that it doesn't. It is however one of a kind on the market and for that it's worth it. I'm just not using it very often like I had hoped I would.

I have had mine for close to a year now. Works great. I'am just finishing up with the Bible in a year reading, excellent tool for this. If and when this unit wears out or breaks I will be buying a new one ASAP.

This isn't my first NowBible. My last one got wet (read as: ruined) and I ordered this one the following day. That was in November. I got the unit from CBD quickly, but it arrived with a battery that had almost no life in it. My last one arrived the same way. A new battery fixed that first one right up and the NowBible folks provided that in decent time. Sadly, I've contacted NowBible (CBD can't help with DOA battery issues) and, just a few days away from January, I'm still sitting with a dead unit, hoping for a battery. The NowBible folks have been very difficult to deal with. I loved my first unit. The reader is excellent and the unit does what it's supposed to do very well. Was very easy to learn to use, too. If you buy one, just be prepared to dog the NowBible folks relentlessly until you can get a working (specialized) battery.

I recently went back to work and my early hours make it very hard to read my bible in the mornings before work. Now I can simultaneously read and listen to Gods word while commuting by van pool. It's a blessing. There are several features I haven't used yet but it is a great product and I would highly recommend it.

This digital bible that you can read or listen to is a wonderful tool to slip in your pocket and tuck in your bag to for daily use wherever you go. I bought mine to listen to my memory verses as I walk; and carry it every where to read when I have a moment.
I have added several txt. books and music mp3's that I also listen to. The photo file will hold some of my favourite photos to share with friends.
There is a calendar to use which is very handy. Each of the features I have found very useful , and for the price is an excellent product
Love it!

I had high hopes for the now Bible and when it arrived these hopes were crushed. It does not connect to itunes. When I called for tech help the help was outsourced and not very good. I am supposed to receive a call in the next 24 hours. Bottom line, do not buy, way too expensive spend the extra money on a Kindle.

This product goes beyond my expectations. I am able to hear & see the word of God while I exercise & if I have to turn the unit off, I just turn the NowBible back on & go to the last verse & start right back up where I left off. The dictionary is also a big plus.

The audio feature combines travel and my daily study. What a great way to feed on the word of God while working and commuting!! I purchased a double male adapter to feed Gods word through my car speakers and I utilize the earphones for air travel and cubicle time.
