  • Great Version

    I have really enjoyed having this version of the Bible. It is the one read in our church. It is easy to use.
  • Provides It All

    By Lucidbull
    I was not sure I would use the app in the same way I depend on my printed Bible. But over the past few years, the app has become my primary use; it is great for Sunday School, and church, because I can highlight, make notes, cross reference and not distract others. I love being able to keep my notes with the scripture and I love looking back on the last 50 verses I read. A big plus for me is I can read anywhere, anytime, without using data. When waiting for an appointment, or in bed when everyone else is asleep, it is quiet and available. I also love the audio feature,; it helps me learn how to pronounce names and places, and when reading through the Bible it allows me to stay on tract. I have had other Bible apps, but this is superior by far.

  • My Favorite Bible App

    By Old Reub
    This app is worth purchasing. It's easy to navigate and has very usable features. I have had almost no problems with bugs and glitches—specifically when other Bible apps on my computer have crashed. I've used this to prepare messages, to lead Bible Studies, for devotions, and for seminary classes. It can seem a bit pricey on the front end but is entirely worth it.
  • Excellent app!
