Hello TTW fam! Pastor Kris here with an important update and fixes on the way for you.
iPhone/iPad: If you’re on iPhone or iPad and experiencing troubles with your app crashing, we are aware of the issue and have a fix on the way. TTW version 3.4.1 causes the app to close when selecting certain audio guides from the Browse menu. Our programmer Zach fixed the issue and submitted it to Apple’s App Store, and you should see version 3.4.2 available soon. Watch for it in the app store (here). Thanks for your patience with us!
Android – Temporarily out of the App Store: Recent updates to the Android system have caused our audio player to have significant issues on Android devices, and we are working hard now to fix all issues. For more details, including how to hear TTW on podcast or how to get the TTW app outside the app store, click here. TTW will be back in the Android app store soon, and we are working hard now to fix all issues. Thanks for your patience and your prayers – we appreciate it!

– Bluetooth: Works great in your car, on Alexa, etc.
– Lockscreen Audio Player: Now you can pause, ffwd, etc from your iPhone lock screen
– Autoplay: Now the autoplay keeps going when your screen is locked or dark.

Journey #’s are Changing by One!
As of last Tuesday, all Journey numbers just went up by one number. That’s because we added a new Journey #1! Well, technically we split the old Journey #2, and moved half of it to Journey #1. So now there will be a total of 19 Journeys instead of 18. Now the new 19 Journeys start like this:
Journey #1 | Start (Mark & Colossians. Formerly part of Foundations).
Journey #2 | The Big Picture (Overview the Bible. Formerly Journey #1)
Journey #3 | Foundations (Genesis, Daniel, Romans)
– Note that Daniel was added and Mark & Colossians moved to J#1.
Journey #4 | Law & Grace (unchanged)…
The rest are the same as before, just bumped up by one number.
If you were subscribed to Foundations… your progress should be saved, but your plan has now been split into two parts (the new Journey #1 | Start, and Journey #3 | Foundations).
Note: If you don’t see those plans on your Home page, go to the Browse page and subscribe again. Your progress will still be there, but the app may have unsubscribed you by accident when the update was made.
If you were subscribed to any other Journey… you don’t need to do anything. The journey number will automatically go up by one.
Here’s why we made the update: After much prayer and careful consideration, we decided that brand new listeners should start their Bible journey with the story of Jesus – before they get an overview of the whole Bible. The change will also bring the app Journeys onto the same plan that we are now launching on YouVersion and our new Bible Audio Guide Podcast, so that all platforms have the same plans. We do apologize for any confusion, and appreciate your understanding as we take this important step moving forward. Please let us know if you experience any frustration or confusion as the change moves forward. Email us at [email protected].
