Disappointed with Update

One of the joys I had with this devotional was that I could copy and paste it into emails to share with friends and family to encourage them. Every now and then as I read a particular day’s devotional, God would bring someone to mind that might find encouragement from that particular day’s scripture. I would copy and paste it into a text message with the title: Jesus Calling plus the date. It was such an easy way for me to minister to that person in a way that was meaningful to them. I have one friend in particular that has suffered multiple brain injuries that loved it when I shared this devotional with her. Now I’m no longer able to without her having to purchase and download the application on her phone. She needs things kept simple and this latest update has made it more complicated to share with her. All that to say, I’m not receiving the enjoyment or benefit that I once experienced with this app. So sad and disappointing. I rarely read it anymore.

Enriching your beliefs!

I am so thankful for ALL of Sarah Young’s books.They are great companions to walking with Christ in daily living and Bible studies as well. No matter what is happening in my life or the world, the words of the daily devotions so often seem written for the circumstances of the times—this is extremely comforting as well as reassuring.I have given them as gifts and can’t wait for the next person who presents their need for such readings. I always keep a few copies of either “Calling”, “Always” and “Today” so that l can be timely in the gifting of the books.I first became familiar with Ms. Young‘s work when in a restaurant, a lady approached us and asked if she could read to us from “today’s reading”. She said that she had overheard our conversation with a brother-in-law who was basically down and out.We were taken back by her approach and she was told “no”. However, l had zeroed in on the title of Jesus Calling and l was down at the bookstore the next day for a copy of my own—l consider the money spent on these books as an investment not only in myself and family but to whomever l gift one of the copies!

I don't like the upgrade either.

The new layout feel impersonal. I don’t like the historical view of where I have been, I would rather the app show today’s devotion when I open it. I used to share info on the devotions with my family, especially my sons who aren’t reading devotions each day. I own the app and 4 additional copies of the book. I have given them the copies of Jesus Calling as well. I know they don’t faithfully read it daily, but they did read what I sent. It is unfortunate I can’t continue to feed their faith using Jesus Calling. I am also not as dedicated to the app. I now go other places for my daily readings. It is a shame you figured out a way to stop people from sharing God’s Word so we are able to let those we love know how we are touched by the Holy Spirit.

Very unhappy with update

I have read Jesus Calling over and over each year since it was first available. I have copied and pasted the devotional and sent to my son for last couple of years.. I always sent it to him in the morning when I read it.. He commented how he looked forward to starting his day with my text.. your update doesn’t allow that for us anymore. Your update has take away something very special between my son and me. I can’t help but think it is an act of greediness on your part…wanting people to purchase that app rather than being thrilled someone is benefiting from the devotional… I paid for it and I should be able to share it.. I have been taken screen shots of it but it takes 2 to get in all in.. just a hassle and not the same…I’m thinking about just cancelling the app and finding a new source to text my son.. this has been very upsetting to me and changed the way I have always felt about Jesus Calling…to be honest I’m sure He isn’t happy you have made this change either…from talking to other people about it I’m not the only one that feels this way!

How to share what you read.

I found out how to share what I read daily to other people. The way I share what I read is by pressing on the center of the page that you were reading and holding your thumb there until you see a bar that will appear on the screen and then click on select all, it will highlight the entire page and then at the end of the bar you will see share click on the share button not the link and that is how I have been able to share this with many of people. As someone posted earlier when you click on the share link all that shows is the books from Sarah Young which are truly amazing every last one of them. I hope this was of some assistance to anybody that’s trying to share something that they read for that particular day. God bless you all God bless the world because Jesus is Lord!!!!

Good but still buggy

1: three of the books have daily readings. Todays reading button should let you choose which book you want to read out of. If you choose another book other than Jesus calling to read, when you go back to the home page and click todays reading it goes to like Jan of that other book. If you click the chapters button and scroll to todays date it switches back to Jesus calling. But if you leave that and click todays reading again it just goes back to the first chapter of your previously read book UNLESS you scroll to the bottom of the home page, click Jesus calling, then exit the chapter selector, NOW you can click todays reading and see todays date in Jesus calling only. What a crazy bug I hope they get it fixed!!2: the Jesus Listens audiobook is advertised as having multiple narrators and musical scoring. It has neither. Only one guy talking.

Give me the old jesus calling devotional

I have given probably 200 Jesus Calling books to our wounded warriors, police officers and people that God leads me to that need Jesus. I have purchased apps for people and now with the update, it messes the entire premise of what Jesus calling app is susppose to do. You have gone commercial with the app and that is why you get 2 stars. We need one app for the devotional that we buy and have it come up on the day that we want to read it. I pray for direction on which devotional that I lead my group. Probably over 100 daily readers from our precious military and now I have gotten feedback that the app doesnt work. Please go back and make it non commercial. We know you have all of these books but we dont care. If we are led to buy them then great but dont force us to go through the hoops of a newsletter and daily words that we are not interested in. I want the day9today devotional to come up when I press on the jesus calling app. Blessings to you

Update has made it totally unusable

Update has made it totally unusable the way I’ve been using it for the last 3 years or so. I have been listening to it read to me before my eyes are fully opened each day. I have found that to be such a sweet & inspirational way to start my day. So much so that I have not missed a single day in all that time. However, now I’m unable to highlight it to hear it as audio (or to share the text with my husband, who is an over the road trucker, gone for a month at a time) I saw the audio option at the top but it doesn’t work for me & the directions that pop up, for restoring my purchase, didn’t work either. When I purchased the app people warned me, that an app where they would charge so much, shows greediness. I defended it because I saw the value in it but with this situation, it kinda feels like a way of trying to get More money out of those who have already purchased it. The 3 stars are for the value I’ve gotten out of it until this point & the 2 missing stars are for the value that I feel has been taken away 😔

Worst ever

Hugh disappointment. I have discontinued usage until remedy. THE WAY IT SHOULD BE LIVING IN DEPENDENCE ON ME is the way to enjoy abundant life. You are learning to appreciate tough times because they amplify your awareness of My Presence. Tasks that you used to dread are becoming rich opportunities to enjoy My closeness. When you feel tired, you remember that I am your Strength; you take pleasure in leaning on Me. I am pleased by your tendency to turn to Me more and more frequently, especially when you are alone. When you are with other people, you often lose sight of My Presence. Your fear of displeasing people puts you in bondage to them, and they become your primary focus. When you realize this has happened, whisper My Name; this tiny act of trust brings Me to the forefront of your consciousness, where I belong. As you bask in the blessing of My nearness, My life can flow through you to others. This is abundant life! I love you, O Lord, my strength. The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge. He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. —Psalm 18:1–2 Fear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord is kept safe. —Proverbs 29:25 “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” —John 10:10 nkjv

You Messed It Up Again😩

This is the second time that you all have messed up the app. It was working perfectly as of 2021. But now, with this last update that I just did May 2021. Now I’m not able to select all and copy the text to send to my loved ones who don’t have smart phones. And that is why I only gave three stars. I thought the goal was to share this word, More so then share the link to purchase this word. I am thinking about deleting this app all together and just copying word from another source so that I can send in a text to my love ones. It would be okay, if when I use the link it would allow my loved ones to read the entire passages for the day, but it won’t even do that. I hate this last update for this reason. It won’t even allow my iPhone lady (Siri), to read the passage to me anymore. That is a MAJOR no no! Sincerely; Frustrated Subscriber. 😩

Themes of thankfulness, prayer, and trust recur often in the daily devotions as they are essential for a close relationship with the Lord. The devotions in this app are meant to be read slowly, preferably in a quiet place. Remember that Jesus is Immanuel, God with us. May you enjoy His Presence and His Peace in ever-increasing measure.
