Now you can control how much data the Bible App uses on your Android device.
Before the Bible App can show you images — in your Home feed, for example, or browsing through Bible Plans, or searching for Events — it has to download them first. When you have a strong Internet connection, that’s great. But if you have low signal on either Wi-Fi or cellular, those same images may not load quickly. This update helps you use less data by specifying which conditions the Bible App should consider before it loads images. When you want it to conserve data, the Bible App will display text instead, wrapping it in placeholders in attractive colors.
After you’ve run the update, look for “Downloading Images” in your Settings:
|Auto Detect||Download images at the optimum resolution available, based on the current network signal strength.|
|Wi-Fi Only||Only download images when your device is connected to a wireless network.|
|Always||Always download the highest-resolution images available.|
|Never||Never download images, regardless of network connection.|
