Was a bit hesitant due to the bad reviews but really wanted to be able to use the app rather than going on my browser all the time in a clunky fashion. The app seems to be working fine now will update this review as I go along.

This book has gotten me closer to the spirit of god, than any other thing besides the bible, it gives me daily instructions on what it really means to be a disciple and child of God!!

Orwell has always been my favorite Christian writer so when I seen he had an app I was overjoyed ❤❤❤

Great app! Easy to use! Super nice to have the journal feature easy to access as the thoughts of Chambers take you deeper into who God is.

Very challenging devotion. It has deepened my walk with God. Jesus has been my personal Saviour for decades but i have grown to be nearer to Him. The comments from others gives me the joy that we are all in the same boat where Jesus is. Praise be to God for this devotion. OC was a man of God indeed!! We can also get deep into the word so that God can speak to us directly. I really needed this App this year. God bless us all.

This devotional is my favorite. Oswald offers a deeper, more intellectual format that challenges one to walk closer with the Lord instead of many fluffy "feel good" devotions that don't call you to a higher knowledge of the word.

App still needs work. Never get notifications I setup. Dark theme is pointless since it still has a bright blue bar at the top and bright white bar at the bottom. This defeats the purpose of a dark theme being easier on your eyes, especially early in the morning.

App is still glitchy even with latest update. It opens to a blank white page instead of the current day's devotional. I have to tap back arrow then reload. Very frustrating considering this is my favorite devotional app!

Finally fixed. I enjoy this app when i have a moment. It makes it easier to access Chambers' devotions rather than logging in through the browser. It also allows me to bookmark the devos i want to review. Now that it's working I would recommend.

It hurts to give this App a bad review! The devotions are beautiful but the App always crashes and is pretty much useless! Please Update it quickly because people spent good money on it!!!!

I'm on a Pixel running Android 9. First time installing, I create an account, and then nothing. The sections where text should be are blank. Then it crashes. I do a total restart, but the same thing happens. 🤷‍♂️ It doesn't seem to work.

readjusting my earlier review. I said the app would not work. I uninstalled and reinstalled it. It now works and I did not have to buy again. I'm very happy. I only gave it 3 stars cause I don't know how much I love it yet, I just know it works.

For content, My Utmost for His Highest gets 100+ stars. Unfortunately, the updated version of this app gets 2 stars. I abandoned it last year and went back to a "pre-2017" version that I found on the web, (the one with the green book icon). I still cannot login, but it is very stable and never crashes on my Pixel 3, Android 9. I use it everyday.

Oswald Chambers died at the age of 43, in his remarkable short lifetime, his life works led many to Jesus, who is the Christ. This app gives you the opportunity to understand the sovereignty and the righteous of our Lord. Simple and no discernment. Each day all year for a lifetime of Biblical wisdom.

JUST GO BACK TO THE OLD VERSION, NO ONE CARES ABOUT NEW FEATURES THAT DO NOT WORK. 3rd update, I used this app for years without a problem but now cannot use it any longer. It crashes every time I try to open it. I uninstall and reinstall the first time and it worked for a few days (at the expense of losing years worth of notes and bookmarks) Now it's just crashing every time I try to open it. I wouldn't call whatever they are doing an "update" it was perfect before and now it's worthless. Back to my old hardcover edition that never needs updates.

About app: I am going to uninstall this app. With current updates, this app is crashing often and not able to open devotional. Its of new use. Please revert to old mode that's better very easy to navigate also. This new updated app is not at all good. Please look into this and change it. Let me know once done I will install it. I can suggest to anyone this devotional book which is really encouraging with both classic and updated editions of "My utmost for His highest". In moments of disappointments or setbacks, i can do meditation of this devotional so that i can maintain very good relationship with God.

Please fix the app! I have sent multiple messages. The app will not open since the new update. This is so frustrating. I have depended on this devotional book for years and I miss reading it.

I really enjoyed the old version, but the new update is completely non-functional on my phone (samsung galaxy s7 edge). It will start but it does not respond to any button presses except the settings menu, and the daily devotionals do not display at all. It will crash every time I try to use it. I paid for this app (old version) and I'm very disappointed that it is now unusable. Please fix it ASAP or restore the old version!!!

I loved this devotional so much in a paperback that I decided to get the app too. The app used to freeze when scrolling, but it's so good to see that they fix that with the updated version. Highly recommended for everyone.

I like the new translation used in the app and like the text the app is based on but it doesn't have the correct date for some reason. When I open it or click on "today" it opens tomorrow's date. I don't know what it's "looking" at to choose tomorrow's date but it's not accessing my phone's date apparently.

This is an eBook, not an app and it has issues. The material is great. I enjoy the book and have the hard copy. I thought it would be nice to have an app that I could use for devotions when I am on the go. This kind of works. It is easy to use and the fonts and sizes are easy to change. /// The first issue for me is is that it only loads to my phone's memory and won't load to the SD Card. The app also lacks several features that would make it more of an app than just a book. I like to send quotes to Twitter and Facebook followers. Kindle does a nice job with that. This app doesn't have that feature. Highlighting would also be nice; as would the ability to set a daily reminder/alarm to help those who are trying to start a habit of devotions. /// It's a nice looking app,but for 4.99, I would suggest people pass and look for a used hard copy of the book, get a Kindle edition, use the website on their browser, or find a free devotion on the Bible app that will give a reminder to keep up.

For a "PAID" app I expect to get my money's worth. While the content is great, it is terrible that the supposed "features" of the app do not work on my smart phone. It won't even let me sign in. I've been trying for several months now. Please fix this, or refund people's money, otherwise, This is a rip-off and constitutes a fraud!!!

I have the book and the website. If this was an 'APP' it'd remind me to read it everyday. It doesnt. It's not an app, it's an ebook! I want my money back but they only give refunds for 15 mins?! Majorly disappointed by a book I've LOVED for YEARS. Plus I can't click anything but today so it's less useful than even the web/book versions. Wish I could give it a 0!! I WANT MY MONEY BACK!!

Nice content of course. App should be free until it can deliver as advertised. Especially a Christian app. I can't share on any social media. It just says nothing found. I cant register. I push the button and nothing happens. Honestly just use the book. Android Galaxy note 4

Nicely done. However, is unable to create an account or log in. Also, it would be nice (1) to have a flag on the page to indicate if there is a journal entry for the page and (2) for a daily reminder at a particular time. Additionally, (3) the links when sharing via email o not appear to work.

I have used this devo for many years. I love the books and the website, but the app needs serious updating! It works very poorly - especially for an app costing this much. It routinely crashes. You cannot highlight or copy text potions. The journal entries crash (as stated above), and you cannot get back to the devotional w/o restarting the app. For this price, I expected much more. This app needs to be update and fixed to reflect the company it represents...

I would be giving this app or ebook 5 stars, but the index feature doesn't work anymore and I don't know why. It is really frusterating because I use to be able to look at all of the months and the days in one and choose. Now I have to click one by one to go back or forwards. Please fix this!! Uninstalled and reinstalled multiple times.

This is not really an app. But it is almost the same as my Kindle version. I was hoping this was both the writen newer version with the Michael Card audio. It is a better price then the Kindle. But I will be asking for a refund,sorry. I would pay more for what I really want. I have to say the Kindle version is well worth the difference. Please work on making this more than an noninteractive book version.

Nice display of the devotional, but you can't choose a date unless you keep pressing next or previous buttons. Also, the menu button is broken. Not sure what it is even supposed to do. If this were free or even a couple dollars, it would be worth it. As it is $5, I think stewardship demands I not purchase something not worth that kind of money.

UPDATE. As i said in a previous update, the content is great, bu it freezes all the tme, whe trying to make notes, when bookmarking, when trying to access bookmark, etc, etc. I keep hoping that the developers will fix it, but they seem no to care. DEVELOPERS PLEASE FIX IT. I'll keep reporting it, hoping that they take ownership and do something about it. That would be the decent thing to do. Let us hope.

Does not work well with samsung galaxy S4. The menu doesn't work and it freezes when I am scrolling. However, I love this book and I'm looking forward to an updated version of this app since I paid $5 for it. If I would have just a few more minutes (15 minute refund policy.... wow, thanks.) I would have got a refund because I already have the Kindle book.

I ever bought it for iPhone, it's pretty good. But this application for Android is so terrible! I bought it for my new Galaxy Note 3, lots of bugs inside, it causes this app is like crap!!! For instance, (1) when I try to view bookmarks, it causes STOP error! (2) When I click 4th icon (it should mean "More"), then it turns to a useless page that simply shows 4 icons in the middle of page, nothing else!!! I could not imagine based on such few functions inside, there still exists such serious bugs! How shameful it is so-called Christian Application!!! And it is not worthy of buying unless these bugs are fixed.

Scrolling is easy if you use the scroll bar. Just thought I'd throw in my 2 cents. The app is clean and uncluttered, a serene green color with the extremely helpful words of Oswald Chambers ready to jump-start my day along with my Bible reading. Nice tool kit... and I like I can read white letters on a black page. Worth 5 bucks to me!

Using on S4. Paid $5.00 for an application that crashes every single time I try to open it it is ridiculous. I do like the application and the style setup but you got desperately need an update that will fix this or need to just refund anyone having this problem.

The content is awesome of course, but the app needs some work. For the user experience: * the opening animation is unnecessary and cannot be skipped which results in a slow app launch. * scrolling stops working at times and completely hangs the app. * when the phone screen locks, it resets the scroll position to the top.

Experiencing same problem as Kim Valentine. The application doesn't have any problem scrolling. But when it came to journal entry, after keying in my thoughts for today's reading, the program stops with an error and I loose all my work. I have tried reinstalling the program but still same problem. I'm using a Samsung Note 2 (N7100)

I read the low star reviews on this for the longest time, and hesitated buying this app for weeks because I feared it'd be a waste of money if I couldn't "scroll right" (the most common complaint was trouble scrolling). However I found out that it's not the app; it's the person scrolling. The app is limited in that it can only scroll if you place your finger on the right hand side (where the actual scroll bar is) and then swiping up or down. Otherwise you get stuck in the middle of the passage if you just mindlessly swipe across the screen. Other than that, this app is WONDERFUL and just as incredibly refreshing as the online version (so it's great to have the app when I don't have internet). There are no bugs, no ads, and best of all it has little tools so I can bookmark, add journal entries, share with friends, etc. You will have to create an account/register (to even save your bookmarks), but other than one-time speedbump, this app is gold. I love it!

This is my favorite devotional. Oswald Chambers is brass tacks Christianity and full of piercing truths and inspiration. The app itself is a 4 out of 5 for me. The design is excellent and the icon is excellent as well (yes a nice app icon is very important to me). I've encountered 1 bug in that sometimes my scrolling stalls. I'll try to scroll and it just won't move. I'll have to swipe my finger/thumb up and down a bit before it clicks.
