This is my favorite bible for daily reading, entirely because of the footnotes.
By the way, my 5 star rating is for the content of the book, no this e-book. In fact, I can't even buy this book unless I can get an opportunity to try it out.
This is the exact dilemma created by the iTunes no refund store policy. The fact is that this book sample does not include the footnotes.
Does the purchased full book include footnotes, and are they formatted in a helpful or time wasting way.
I currently use the kindle version and the footnotes are included, but they jump around a bit more than necessary. If this were footnoted better than the kindle, I might be willing to buy it once OS X gets an ereader in Maverick.
Apple, please change your store policy to allow buyers a remorse period to get a refund.
Like it but...
Great bible, but the iBook has two flaws - it needs the name of the book you are in on each page, like hard cover bibles have. You have no clue where you are. Also, when going to the bookmark page, the individual bookmarks are not labeled, showing what book/chapter/verse each bookmark is. If you have several bookmarks, you could spend 10 minutes guessing which one is what. I would rate this a 5-star if this was corrected.
Look at the "i"
For those who cannot seem to figure the app out, to find the footnotes (which are the indispensable reason for even getting this version of the Orthodox Bible) just tap the " i " up in the right hand corner.
