Pros and cons of The Scriptures app for iPhone and iPad

The Scriptures app good for

As an LDS Iphone user this was exactly what I was waiting for. This app works great, If you have any love for these wonderful scriptures, or just want to know more about the LDS faith get this app!
Just what I was looking for. There is another app but he is taking advantage of LDS people and charging 15 bux! This app is great and a true service to the LDS community!!!
I just happened to find this app and I was so happy! It works great and have no problems with it. However the only frustration I have (and it is the same with the other apps as well) is that it doesnt remember where you are. If reading on he morning or looking up a scripture at church, would love to go right back to it after checking another reference. Maybe its an iPhone thing? Other than that, I really appreciate someone taking the time to make this app.
This is great! I was disappointed that the other available app was $15. Free is how it should be. I am disappoint though that it doesnt remember where you are (hence the only 4 star rating). The Stanza Reader App does this and its great... Could this be made compatible with that app?
It sure is nice knowing you can have portable scriptures like these. It is hard to complain about free applications like this. However, chapter headings would be nice and a highlighting feature would make this application complete for me. Maybe one day well see some manuals and the hymns on here too. Overall this application is the best because it is free! Thanks Lee keep up the good work.
Thanks for making The Scriptures available to everyone with an iTouch/iPhone.

Some bad moments

Good to see a FREE scripture app. Thanks for your efforts. Cant wait to see how this changes over time. If only we could have a Yanceyware reader for iphone!!
Maybe its just mine, but everyday it resets to D&C section 138 so I lose my place in whichever book I am reading. It is frustrating.
You are missing (or it isnt showing up) the intro written by Nephi right at the beginning of Nephi Chapter 1. Plus the screen wont rotate to landscape.
I loved this app cause as a convert its the closest I can get to the quad without the price. But lately the app wont open. I will try everything from shutting my phone off and on, closing it and opening it again, deleting and reinstalling, in short: nothing works to make it work. Hope Im not the only one having an issue.
The highlighted scriptures dont show up!!! I deleted the app to reinstall for the sake of possibly fixing a glitch or downloading bug fixes, but now the app is asking me to spend money to repurchase the highlighters!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Garbage garbage garbage!!!!!!!!!!!! negative ten stars!!!!!!!!!!!
Once highlighted the highlighted scriptures dont show up under the bookmarks. Please fix this! If this is going to be the case Id rather use my scriptures old school style...
