Bring on the Good News
By: UCShanDiego - Dec 20, 2009
I love the concept, and Im suprised it took this long to get a comic book bible on the iPhone, I just wish they had used the Good News Bible version as the grammer is better suited to a younger audiance. Keep up the good work!
Muy buena. ¿donde esta el resto?
By: Josechuis - 19-Dec-2009
Me he descargado el cómic Tierra de Nazaret pero parece que para el resto vamos a tener que esperar. La web de los desarrolladores tiene un calendario donde pone que para marzo estará toda la Biblia entera. Bueno, pues hasta entonces sabe a poco, aunque la verdad es que está muy currado. La próxima entrega dice que es el 15 de enero, así que a esperar.

It was pretty cool and my kids enjoyed it - though not something I can see someone really needing. Also the language was a bit old fashioned for the kids - might be better with more modern language to reach the kids.

Acostumbrado a ver las barbaridades que se hacen con los libros sobre la Biblia para niños me ha soprendido encontrar una app para iPhone que sea tan fiel al texto bíblico. Parece como si no hubieran querido guionar nada y se hubieran limitado a hacer un copiar de los textos de la Biblia, lo que, finalmente, se agradece.
And it was written
By: checkyaself - Dec 17, 2009
The art and visual parts of this app are exactly as advertised. The translation (while totally accurate) isn't what I want in a comic. I do think there is room for simplifying/modernizing the bible in a format like this without offending people. I would totally buy more books if I didn't have to explain so much of the language to my kids. Thrilled with the concept and okay with the execution.
Comic en iphone y papel
By: lhatm - 18-Dec-2009
Me ha sorprendido encontrar está versión de comic de la Biblia para iPhone pues el fin de semana pasado me la compré en papel. Se llama Descubre Jesús La Palabra. La edición en papel es estupenda pero me ha soprendido lo bien que se ven los dibujos y los colores en la pantalla del iPhone. Además este sistema que han montado para ir viendo las viñetas me parece un acierto. Hasta ahora no creía que pudiera ser práctico leer cómics en iphone pero se ve que tendré que replanteármelo. La recomiendo a todo el mundo.
This app is a foot in the door for pay comics. And censored.
By: Zokapi - Dec 16, 2009
This app is polished technically and appears to be written with sincere intentions. But downloading it only invites you to purchase more comics for $2.99. The application itself, is just a comic holder. The 'free' part is 4 pages of the 25 page Nazareth Comic. As well, the stories, 'for children' are censored. Surely the old testament contains material that is not appropriate for children. But how can one choose which parts to omit? The comic appears to pick and choose. It leaves in that mary was a virgin, but leaves out why generations of people fear god. I agree with the author that much of the bible is not appropriate. But why not an app that talks about what the bible actually says? Won't censored versions only teach believers to hide from their texts? Instead of preying on believers with a free app that allows you to buy things and glossing over what many believers consider 'the unerring word of god' try keeping beliefs on the table. Sincere believers may struggle to reconcile the inappropriateness of the bible with their experiences of morals and ethics in the modern world. The author's attempt to exploit that struggle is the offensive part.
Un cómic para toda la familia
By: Sitlali - 16-Dec-2009
Muy interesante para compartir con toda la familia. Los dibujos gustan mucho, tanto a los pequeños como a los mayores. Los textos se entienden perfectamente y son realmente fieles a los Evangelios. Esperamos con ganas que salgan los siguientes álbumes!!
Really lovely, well thought out comic book
By: hilarywhitney - Dec 15, 2009
I really enjoyed this app for several reasons outside of even the story content itself. It seems the designers put a great deal of effort and thought into usability as well as the design of the comic book. The illustrations are nice and the narration is good. The variety of languages increases the accessibility of the app which is great as well. Navigation is a breeze and in case it doesn't come naturally to you, they have a great tutorial that is brief and effective. I especially enjoy that the comic book naturally starts zoomed in on the text on the page and when you tap for the "next page" it goes first to a zoomed out version of the page so you can get the whole picture. Definitely a great app to add to your collection.

Me la he descargado por consejo de un amigo pero me ha encantado. Seria genial que tuviera sonido pero aun así me ha parecido una aplicación bien hecha
Rating based primarily on concept...
By: dsytnr - Dec 15, 2009
The concept and format are great. There wasn't always three panels as advised in the "how to" section, but it was fairly easy to navigate. I think the language could also be more simplified to meet the younger age group and still get the message across. I don't know if there would be a demand for this to be narrated (especially with the different language options - this would allow exposure to the Bible as well as to other languages). It may expand the age that would have access to this. I think flipping through the pages is a nice touch. I could see where parents attending church could use this to have their children participate in the message and not be "bored" in an adult setting.
Una app en català!
By: candelasalero - 16-Dec-2009
Si ja costa de trobar apps en català es un plaer descobrir aquest cómic de la Bíblia dibuixat per Picanyol. El llenguatge és molt adequat per al públic infantil i la forma de presentar les històries és molt entenedora. Esperem que treguin més apps.
Simple, easy to follow but....
By: Basketguy - Dec 15, 2009
A couple of the pages were missing dialogue. It was easy to follow the characters and who was speaking. I wish more units were free. The illustraions are a bit simple. Overall fair
Bíblia para niños
By: Lucernario - 16-Dec-2009
¡Ya era hora que a alguién se le ocurriera crear una Biblia en iPhone para niños!Hay muchísimas ediciones de Biblias para adultos en todas las lenguas pero faltaba una app específica para los niños. Me parece interesente el planteamiento de hacer un cómic de la Biblia y la forma como lo muestran en pantalla resulta agradable y relajante.Espero que publiquen pronto el resto de la Biblia, ahora sólo está diponible Tierra de Nazaret.
By: cjweb - Dec 15, 2009
The comic book style is well done. The illustrations are great and the page-by-page storyline is cool. I love the in app purchase option. My son (7 yrs old) will really like this.The Twitter and Facebook access are a nice touch.
A Comic Book Bible! AMEN!
By: PlayingDoctr - Dec 15, 2009
When I was growing up, I had a two inch thick comic book bible that I use to read before going to bed. At one point, my parents told me that the Sunday School teacher commented that I already knew all the bible stories that they were teaching - and that was why! No kid wants to try to read the standard bible - too much small print and no pictures is just way too daunting. The stories though facinate them, and when presented properly - like they are here - can help enrich them and help them grow spiritually.
Great concept and awesome layout
By: mrsbkw - Dec 15, 2009
This is a great app for kids and 'older' kids! I liked the way it works, flipping pages thru the comic book. Excellent teaching tool, my 9 yr old really likes using it.
By: a davis - Dec 15, 2009
i went through the app and its just ok..I dont beleive many will actually sit down and read this on a phone to a child. and I am sure kids wont have an iphone to read. its nice but I would never pay for it for my family..sorry
Great App - Educational & Fun
By: ladedagrl - Dec 15, 2009
Beautiful app that is a terrific blend of technology and design. Impressed that it is available in so many languages! My kids are learning Spanish and French - so we downloaded The Birth Of Jesus comic in those languages and are having fun translating. The comic style is a great way to engage the kids in Bible stories. Looking forward to the additional content.
