  • Dear @ElGawly,
    Many thanks, the app looks very useful and interesting, may God reward you and all the people who were involved in this work. One thing though I would like to have been able to change the background colour but I can't seem to find any setting for this. The red colour is quite infuriating! God bless the whole work nonetheless..

  • Thanks be to God and thank you Elgawly.

    Made a spiritual connection straight after I downloaded and opened it.
    Last night I decided to read Matthew and today I opened the app and it went straight there. It could of gone to Genesis but it went straight there.

    I had been praying for help and I received it. Once again many thanks.
    Praise be to God always for His loving kindness.

    A wonderful app. God bless your efforts.


    How about an option where one could advance through each set of commentaries with an advance button near where the "x" is. That way a user could advance through each verse in a commentary style. 


    In addition to this, a bookmark option would be a nice way to quickly reference certain commentaries.
