Android - Notes

Verse or Text Based

There are two ways to create notes within our app: word based and verse based. Word-based notes are created by selecting text and are tied to the resource in which they are created. Verse-based notes are created by tapping on a verse number. These notes are tied to the verse number and will show across Bible translations.

Create a Note

The most common way to create a note is while viewing text. As mentioned above, these notes can be tied either to a verse or to text. Follow these steps to create a note:

  • Tap a verse number or select text. 
  • Select Note from the pop-up menu.

You can also create a note that is not tied to a resource. There are two ways to do this. First, you can create a note through the Menu: 

  • Tap the Menu icon.

  • Tap Notes.

  • Tap green '+' icon in the lower right corner.

  • Tap the note icon that appears.

  • Now, you can tap in the body of the note to insert text.

Second, you can create a note that's not attached to a resource through the Study Center:

  • Tap the green Open Study Center bar.

  • Tap Notes.

  • Tap the + icon.
  • Choose the note icon.

Edit a Note

Once a note is created, it can be located in the Menu or by tapping the icon next to the text the note was added to. Either way, opening the note will provide you with a chance to edit the note. With the 'Edit Note' window open, you can change the title, add content, edit the tags, and assign the note to a category.


  1. Tap the Back icon to save your work and leave the note. Tap the text at the top of the window to the right of the back arrow to change the note's title.
  2. Tap the verse reference to navigate to the linked text in the main window.
  3. Tap the white space to begin typing in the note. Note that verse references will be hyperlinked for easy access. 
  4. Tap 'Edit Tags' button to add a tag. Tap a tag to see other annotations for that tag. 
  5. Tap 'Change Icon' to change the icon that appears in the text. 
  6. Tap 'Change Category' to choose which category you would like the note to appear in.
  7. At the bottom of the screen, you will see the date the note was created and the date the note was last updated.
