Re: Error in a verse I noticed

In the tap to reveal function of the KJV, I noticed an error in the order of words in Romans 1:29-30. The last word of verse 29 and the first word of verse 30 are flipped. It reveals "Backbiters" as the last word of verse 29 and "whisperer" as the first word of verse 30. Can you fix this? I've been working on memorizing the entire chapter and I noticed it when I was going through the entire chapter on the tap to reveal function. Great app! Keep up the good work!

    I hope you're well today!
    We're clearing out old bug reports in preparation for a round of development and I came across yours.
    Just thought I'd drop you a note and let you know that the app is actually performing as it's supposed to. Technically, Tap Out is not "saying" that the first word of Romans 1:30 in the KJV is "whisperer". Instead, it is using it's algorithm to break up the whole passage you were memorizing (Romans 1:29-30) into it's best guess at meaningful chunks.
    It just so happened, given the layout of the punctuation, that it decided "whisperers, Backbiters," was a meaningful chunk.
    That being said, thanks a ton for taking the time to point it out. Folks who pause and take a moment to share their observations really help us as we continue to improve the app. 
    Thanks for using Verses!
