Pros and cons of Streams in the Desert - Daily Devotional app for iPhone and iPad
Streams in the Desert - Daily Devotional app good for
This is a great daily devotional. I also have the book but having it on an app is so convenient vs carrying a handful of books around each morning. I highly recommend this collection of encouraging and spiritually enriching devotions from the greatest Christian authors. My only recommendation would be a better voice for the audio feature vs the Siri like one it comes with.
Great App. Easy to navigate, and is great resource to have available daily on my phone and tablet. I have had the book at home for long time, however, it is never with me when I have time to read. Now each day it is with me wherever and whenever I can. The only recommendation or upgrade I would recommend is the audio portion to be lifelike and real, instead of computer speech
Some bad moments
Easy to use. Easy to read. No extra, unneeded frills. Thank you for a great way to present this wonderful classic devotional.
The content is great, but instability (screen shake) keeps me from being able to add notes. Please fix
Everything works great in this app! Love the new update with all the beautiful pics!
I have the revised book and this is not exactly the same, but they both provide good words
Blessings and encouragements await you each day in these words.
I have long been a fan of the "streams in the desert " devotionals. I wasnt sure if I would like this version that has the commentary updated to todays language, but I have found that I like it surprisingly well. I like the Bible verse and beautiful picture as a nice intro. The commentary is very readable-nice for "sleepy brain." But the quoted prose by different authors have been left in their original language, preserving their beauty. All in all its a lovely way to start each day, and I still read the older version when I have time also. The two versions complement each other very well and I can meditate on the days topic longer.
