    I'm not a religious person (nor spiritual) but the interface and interactions are very nice. A well polished app.

    Never got around the read the old book but this might be the push I need. I would never pay for it so thanks for sharing.

    I think ignoring the fact that this is a religious text is more exciting because you get to look at the presentation of a dense book as an app. It's a great exploration in hierarchy and organization. Having a reading experience like this for every novel offered through the kindle app would make the reading experience of all longer texts more exciting to read the first time and revisit again later.

    The biggest update in this release, IMO, is now the app remembers your reading location. In 1.0, it seemed almost crazy to have an app all about reading that didn't remember your latest reading location. Glad to see they fixed that.

    Are makers of this app themselves christian? Can't really tell from their twitters...

    Looks really nice. Only drawback for me (and it's a big one) is the word count per line. It makes for a frustrating experience if you are constantly having to shift your eye to a new line.

    Ideally you should be trying to put 9-12 words per line. I understand it's for mobile, but when the main purpose of the app is reading, this should be priority. Decreasing the default point size by one or two, and reducing the padding around the outside should fix this.

      Setting the type size to the smallest option will get you around 8-11 words per line. The customization with the typeface and type size is fantastic.

      Sentinel looks great in the app.

      Word count isn't what you should be targeting, since they're too variable. We designed based on character count. We built it out so that when set in Texta, our middle setting accommodates 40 characters. That works itself comfortably inside the range of ideal reading (according to Bringhurst), albeit the bottom range. That's why I size my reading experience -1 from the middle. I prefer a more compact character count to my page.

    Stilllll want to see the added iPad-friendly version. I read on bigger screens. Still a beautiful app, though!
