Arrow Question / Issue:

I just bought your Catholic Bible References app (iOS version) and need help using it. When I tap on a topic that has "N/A" it brings me to a page explaining what to do. When I tap the bottom options it goes nowhere . When I tap "back" to home page and see A-Z, I am not sure what letter to tap for the topic I selected. For example "Bible Alone" has "N/A". How do I get to this 'bible alone' Scripture? I am also not sure what to type using the search bar to get selected topic Scriptures. Also, why are there so many topics that are marked "N/A"?

Thank you for your support of our apps. We're sorry for the confusion you experienced. To answer your questions, please first note that the entries with "N/A" are tips (see the signpost at left bearing the word "TIP"). As indicated in the app's description, the app contains "100+ Tips For Locating Related Passages (including those related to defending the Catholic faith among 'Jehovah's Witnesses' & Mormons)". As indicated in the help screen "Tips are provided for users' convenience to help locate records that may be applicable to given topics. Tips do not contain scripture." For your convenience, please note that tips should contain a small signpost image at left that says "TIP'. You NEVER need to tap on a 'Tip' row. They are just suggestions for possible topics that may contain relevant scripture.

Looking at your specific example ("Bible Alone"), I see two tips, namely...

* Bible Alone: See Oral Tradition

* Bible Alone: See Scripture

For the first of these, tap 'O' for Oral Tradition. You should then see several relevant passages. Tap on applicable row to view scripture for this topic.

For the second item above, tap 'S' for Scripture. In this case, since the records are alphabetical, you will need to scroll down to view the topic 'Scripture'. Again, there are a few relevant passages (tap to view scripture). There are also two additional Tips, one being 'Oral Tradition' and the other being 'Tradition'. To view the latter, tap 'T' for scripture related to topic 'Tradition'. Again, you NEVER need to tap on a 'Tip' row. They are just suggestions for possible topics that may contain relevant scripture. If you already see the applicable tip, it's often easiest (by design) to simply tap the first letter of the topic suggested in the tip (e.g. 'O' for 'Oral Tradition').

Regarding searches, you might want to type 'Scripture' into the search bar to see relevant passages. If you type 'Bible', it lists several tips. Again, the tips do NOT contain scripture. Rather, the tips help you find related scripture passages. So using the above example, if you enter 'Bible' in the search bar, you may see tips like...

Bible Alone: See Oral Tradition

Bible Alone: See Scripture

Bible: See Scripture

You can either go back to the index and tap on 'O' or 'S' for the above items (for 'Oral Tradition' or 'Scripture'), or you can just type in any of these words (i.e. 'oral', 'tradition', 'scripture') in the search bar to view related scripture.

Please keep in mind that tips are marked "N/A" because tips are to point you to potentially relevant scripture. Since tips do not contain scripture, there is no passage to indicate (therefore the scripture passage must be 'N/A'). I think you may begin to appreciate the 'ample' amount of tips when you are more familiar with the app. For example, should you be talking with a 'Jehovah's Witness', tap on 'J' and you should see a couple passages plus four tips. These tips may be great memory aids to remind you that 'Jehovah's Witness' may reject Christ's divinity, hell & the Trinity.

Also, just like in a textbook, there may be a variety of references pointing a reader to the same passage. For example, a book on Jesus that contains information on the Blessed Virgin Mary may reference the same pages on Mary in different manners (e.g. Blessed Virgin Mary, Virgin Mary, Mother of Jesus, Mary, etc.) in order to assist readers find the information they seek regardless of which term they might use to seek that information. Likewise in this app there can be so many ways to reference things that using tips helps avoids duplication, thereby giving the app a smaller fingerprint (e.g. saves room on your device). As indicated earlier, I think you may begin to appreciate the 'ample' amount of tips when you are more familiar with the app. It's actually one of the selling features of the app. I do apologize that the tips seem to have caused some confusion. I hope the above may help clarify matters.

Thank you for your support of our app.
