I will date myself here a little.  I come from days of the Palm Pilot, the predecessor of the modern Tablet.  It was before it's proper time.  At any rate, I would read my Bible on the Palm Pilot because of an awesome feature called, autoscrolling!  I was always pleased with that feature, the speed could be set, the style of scrolling (line or page).  I have long been disappointed in this modern age that we live that no one really has adopted that feature.  Some have auto page flipping, but it is not the same.  Scrolling allows you get better adjust your speed instead of a sudden page flip when you are not quite done.  I said all of that to say this, I would love to have autoscrolling in the iOS.  It is on the desktop, and I wouldn't think it would be that difficult to have on iOS.  I regularly read my Bible on my iPad.

I remember that on the Palm, too. It would be great on iOS!

I never use autoscroll because it's harder for my eyes to track the words when they're moving.
