It is nice to have so many versions of the Bible at my fingertips. It is good to compare scriptures because it increases my understanding of God’s Word.
CookDude56673 on 7/19/2018
This app is awesome. I love being able to read my bible on my phone and I love the verse of the day it always pumps me up.
iPad split view multitasking?
Guyfromage on 7/19/2018
Great app that would be even better with split view multitasking (side by side) for taking notes in another app like Evernote.
Awesome app! Get it!
Rev.Jones on 7/19/2018
Great for daily reading and devotion and it motivating seeing your streaks on reading everyday.
Always there
Ive never had and on 7/19/2018
This app rocks. Whether I forget my bible for bible study, or need to pull up scripture during conversation this app is here!! Love it and I recommend it.
Convenient and well featured
Ingeneerity on 7/19/2018
Excellent app. Lots of features that make reading the bible organized and encourages consistency. Searching for specific passages is intuitive. Updates have improved the original version considerably.
Great app, only need to add split view
djgogga on 7/19/2018
The app is wonderful. The only thing I am missing is being able to do split screen so that I can take notes right along side it.
meganzjn on 7/19/2018
This app is the most helpful I have found! and the price is right!

Thank you, thank you, thank you for the new fonts!!! I’ve been waiting for new fonts for a long time now and BOOM here they are. Very appreciative. Cool updates. 👍🏾
Love multiple versions, hate the search
KJR29 on 7/19/2018
I love having quick access to multiple translations so I can compare the different ways that different translations word scripture. I also love that there are sometimes notes about literal translations. (I’d love to be able to click through on those to find translations that use literal wording, or find explanations for why specific words were chosen). I hate the search engine, hence the 3 stars instead of five. I can rarely find scripture in it, despite having enough familiarity to be able to search for exact wording. I generally have to go to google to find the scripture I am searching for because this search just doesn’t work. Otherwise, this is a five star app!

Taking the word with you...
Daddy Do Dee on 7/19/2018
Having the word of a God on my iPad means I can teach my grandkids from the Bible with the click of a button...because they like to borrow it when they visit. My grandson will read his bible and I can follow on my iPad to help pronounce the words and talk about it for understanding.

Love this app
f8thfullyHis on 7/19/2018
I love the fact that I can get so many different translations that help with my study & I always have the same translation the preacher/teacher has. I also like access to all the different devotions and Bible reading plans.
A blessing of a resource!
Dragonrider1047 on 7/19/2018
This is a fabulous use of technology. We live in such an instant world, and so too many people end up not picking up their bible and thumbing through to find a particular verse; we just google it now. So this database of scripture and devotional said wonderful. Praise God!
LUROJIPA on 7/19/2018
Una muy buena app que parte de serlo edifica a la vida misma
Love my self ☄️☄️☄️
Alcapone💙 on 7/19/2018
A must-have app!
DesperatelySeekingGod on 7/19/2018
This app is great! Not only does it have different versions available, but the many different devotionals are superb. There are reminders to encourage and motivate to be faithful in reading God’s Word. It enables me to use unexpected free moments to be encouraged by Scripture because I always have a device with me. Each morning I am encouraged by the verse of the day on my home screen.
Gitana47 on 7/19/2018
Love this app and all it has to offer!!! And the fact that I can just read it at any given time is even better. There is no schedule no wrong time it’s all in His timing and in your willingness ❤️
LOVE. LOVE. LOVE this App! Download today!
💙Jackie Gorham💛 on 7/19/2018
I seriously strayed delving into God’s Word the first month of this year. Thanks to the Bible App I’ve engaged more with the Word since then in all of ever! It started with simple alerts reminding me to read a verse a day and have grown to community devotionals. Now, I can’t even imagine starting my day without first turning to God’s Word. I know I have yet to discover more cool things integrated into this app. Oh! I love the new image/text updates! They are EV👏🏽ERY👏🏽THING👏🏽. Thanks for making this an option. I’ve grown closer to the Father.
Amazing app
NatXCruz on 7/19/2018
I enjoy everyday the devotional plans and the app is very easy to use. Having the power of the Word at your fingertips is a blessing!
Most cherished app
Prada12 on 7/19/2018
Wherever I am I can look up a Bible verse, initiate a talk with God. I used to play game apps to kill time. This is my most cherished app. I use this app on the train to and from work, in church, on the go , even at home where I have a physical bible. Even if you don’t know where a specific book is in the Bible you can find it quickly alphabetically. It is so helpful that you can switch to different versions of the Bible if you don’t quite get the meaning in the KJV. I look forward to receiving a new Bible verse of the day, which causes me to read more of the Bible. I can also share that verse with someone else.
I love this app
Amirah22 on 7/19/2018
I have been using this app since 2011. There has been many updates from now to then. I love that I have a few close friends and family that follow me on here. We are able to keep each other in the face of God. I only wish with the plans because I have read so many if when you are browsing new plans if it will tell you that you completed a certain one. Addendum, you know can see the date that you completed a specific plan. Thank you bible app!
Audio Audio Audio!

This is are Basic instructions before leaving earth
Does His word have an effect on you while reading?
Brother Randy on 7/18/2018
If it doesn't then it could be a number of reasons: 1-You aren't Holy Spirit filled: How to receive the Holy Spirit? The bible says Romans10:13 Call out His name and you will be saved. 2-You ARE Holy Spirit filled but not exercising the Spirit: How to exercise the Holy Spirit within you? 1-Proverbs 1:7 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge 2-Galatians 5:16 Listen and do what the Holy Spirit says and you shall not gratify your sinful desires which is sexual immorality, impurity, lustful pleasure, idolatry and witchcraft; Hatred, quarreling, jealousy, moments of rage, selfish ambition... Etc 3-Your not in a constant conversation with God through out the day. More time with Him the more growth, strength, focus, knowledge, wisdom, positivity Etc.. We would receive!!! 1 Thessalonians 5:17 Never stop praying Many more answers to this question but this is just a glimpse how to let His word have an effect on you today. May God the Father bless each and everyone of those who read this message in Jesus name I thank you Father. Amen and amen

UniversaI Republic on 7/18/2018
Hey developers! Please make it so I can use this app in split screen on iPad Pro! It would be really nice if I didn’t have to switch back and forth between my notes (GoodNotes) and my bible/plans. Thanks for all you do!!!

Great value! 😉
gratefulaz on 7/18/2018
I shouldn’t complain since it’s free, but it would be super helpful if it was easier to find a particular verse. I can select book and chapter, but then I have to scroll through verses. A little tedious on the bigger chapters.
