LearnScripture.net has been designed for phones and tablets from the start. Just visit the website in your device's web browser and it will work, and adapt to the smaller screen. For Android phones, install the app for easy access.
Please note the following:
- To make the most of the space some controls appear at the bottom of the page and you may have to scroll down to see them. These controls appear in a column on the right on larger screens.
- For most phones it will be best if you turn off animations in your preferences.
- Lots of devices seem to have problems with the keyboard-based testing. You should use the On screen buttons method for testing, which is the default, and can be set in your preferences.
Additional information and tips for specific devices and browsers:

- Bring up the phone menu and bookmark the page.
- On some phones, change “Add To” to “Home Screen”, press “OK” and you are done.
- On other phones, you then need to:

If the app doesn't work...
The large number of Android versions and customisation that are made by phone manufacturers makes it very hard to test everything. If there is a problem with the app, please contact us, making sure you include as much information about your device and your Android version as you can.
As an alternative to the app, you can try loading the site in Firefox for Android, which usually works well.
Chrome for Android
Google Chrome on Android has some bugs that can cause issues when using the main learning interface with keyboard testing. It's best to use the "On screen buttons" method, or use the app or Firefox browser, as described above.
LearnScripture.net doesn't work correctly on any models of BlackBerry that we have tested so far, due to limitations of the provided browsers. Sorry! (If you have a recent BlackBerry and have had success, please let us know!) You, however, can get Opera Mini for the BlackBerry, which supports the site with a rather slow user experience - see below.
Opera Mini is a "thin client" browser that is not really intended for an interactive application like LearnScripture.net. However, most of the site, including the main learning interface, does work on Opera Mini, although with a much slower interaction than on a proper web browser. You will need to press "Enter" to have each word checked when testing, instead of "Space", and will need to click back into the text box after each word, due to limitations of the browser.
