The app looks pretty good. Like the book version they have the best display of the cross-references. I already have a couple NABRE apps so I probably won't be buying it.

I wish Doubleday would release the Jerusalem Bible as an e-book, they are still publishing it in that hardback reader's edition that I always see for sale at the bookstore.
