    by Lacaroo2

    I think this is a very good bible app. I think it would be better if it didn't take Internet. But if it has to take Internet it has to take Internet. I think if you don't already have this app you should get it.

  • Great app.

    by Disgusting ads

  • The Best

    by too busy eating

    by Scott4Bud

  • Brilliant app!

    by ShamonBrian

    Everyone will hear the Word of the Lord in their language. AMEN

  • Exceptionally International

    by Romans1012

    I am very impressed to see your consistant addition of languages to the app. Working in ministry it is always hard to find easy ways to reach people with the Bible and I am happy to say this is one of those tools you hope for. As the world becomes more connected and mobile phones continue to increase, apps like this will become critial to our Christian growth. Praise God!

  • Simple yet sophisticated

    by TJ Cook

    I download a lot of Bible apps just like I download a lot of productivity apps. provides a simple user experience but does so without sacrificing a robust set of capabilities. And it's more about a greater mission than just being a great Bible app, which for me means a lot. The Notebook is well done and helpful as a simple study tool to look back on reading throughout the year. The array of JESUS Film languages available is awesome. I have some friends who speak Tagalog and it's so wonderful being able to watch and listen to native speakers.

  • Beautiful app...

    by LAKHunt

    Thank you a truly international app. I am amazed at all the languages you offer and the ease in which to search languages by country. And now you have added Farsi as a display language. Outstanding! God bless your ministry!

  • Love this Bible app

    by Brittainia

    Having audio is a treasure. I truly grasp the Bible in a bigger way with this app. I am sure with all these languages, you will be able to help so many experience God's love in an incredible way.

  • Keep going!

    by KingdomCause

    It is great to see how you have such a diverse list of languages in your app, as well and adding more display langauges like Farsi. Keep up this great work and effort for the kingdom.

  • Lover of God's written word.

    by Joybright

    Fantastic!!! I was looking for an Italian Bible and here it us in written and audio form. Still exploring the very clear features. Great app and has many many languages I have seen in any app period,

  • Great work continued!

    by LJ's Big Daddy

    Thanks so much for your dedication to providing the Word in so many different languages. May this new Farsi edition bless millions more!

  • Excellent App

  • Bible

    by 6 T's

    This is an amazing tool to help with personal devotions and family devotions and helps the Word of God come alive.

  • Updates have been terrible for me

    by mbowerman256

    To keep it short, I LOVED this app. But, after the last few updates have made me want to uninstall it. The audio clips are fine, I like that they offer different translations, and there is some pretty neat extra content. That's why I'm giving it two stars. But, now I can't read on my iPad air when I don't have WiFi, and it constantly messes up any audio I may download or listen to. Really bummed about this, and with no offline usage, I have no need for this app anymore

  • Excellent

    by NashRican

    We love this App!!!

    by Turtle. Yurtkegnfhc

    by Allie1964

    I love listening to them read!

  • I don't usually review apps, but when I do...

    by Bjjlyatesthis best be unique

    it's because the app is usually a stinker, or it is awesome. This app is the latter! I am spellbound listening to the scriptures this way!

  • Fabulous!

    by NC Prii

    I love this app. I use one of the dramatic readings and love hearing it read more like a story. Many times I read along and I feel like I'm getting an extra depth in terms of understanding and retention. I did discover you have to download chapter by chapter if you want to be able to use offline. Not a prob, once you realize that!

  • I love it!

    by David Huntsman

    I love being able to wake up and hear the Word. This app is awesome!

  • Awesome bible app!

    by NickieJ7

    I love the drama! The app allows me to take notes and answer a msg if need be without interrupting the Word! Love it!

  • They ruined a great app!

    by G.Pride

    This used to be a world class app and it has been ruined! My bookmarks are gone and when I log in to retrieve them, the app crashes every time. Also, they took out the reading plan which was an awesome feature. Stop ruining great apps!!!!, fix this mess you made!

  • Super easy to use

    by Olgie60

    This is a great app and a great way to bring the Bible in an easy to understand form that everyone will enjoy!

  • Used every day

    by Johnyblaze178

    I wish they had more full Bible versions

  • Awesome!!

    by Akadva

    This is a great way to get the daily word.

  • Changed my outlook

    by Tchn4jesus

    I have ADD, and reading the Bible was sometimes difficult for me. Hearing the Bible keeps me focused and the sound effects in the background make the story come alive. The voices are very soothing, so reading/listening to the Bible has become something that I look forward to every day.

  • Great app

    by Jashua1

    By Jashua I really like this app and I really enjoy it.

  • :)

    by Shawn w. ramer

    It's cool

  • Rebooting Issue

    by Potter's clay 64

    I think this app is a great app, however it causes my iPad to shut down and reboot any time I pause the audio Bible reading portion of the app. If this issue could be fixed, I would give it a higher rating. Would be nice to have words of Christ in red also.

  • Great app!! Please support!

    by Fredwbaker

    This is an amazing app with great audio/text versions of the KJV. I highly recommend!!

  • Great

    by Kena williams


  • Five stars!

    by Wifeygirl

    How can you rate the Word of God less? I love being able to listen/ look up scriptures whenever/ wherever I am. The lightly dramatized audio makes scriptures come alive without overshadowing the message. Thank you for making the Bible available to the whole world!

  • What a Blessing!!

    by Mrs. Darr

    Love this app!!! Thank you so much for your hard work!! :) God Bless!!

  • GREAT APP!!!

    by Kdkfjd

    Thank you so much for creating this wonderful app. Best holy bible app i have ever used. Definitely recommend it to everyone!!!!

  • Love The Narration!

    by mamacha

    I love this Bible app. I installed the "dramatized" version of the ESV Old & New Testaments, and it is fantastic. I really enjoy listening to the Bible with this app. It's made a tremendous difference in my time spent in the Word. Thank you and God bless you!

    I love this app I have a Bluetooth speaker so I can really hear the word. I love it.....

  • Very Pleased

    by David The App Guy

    Two of the features I like: This Bible app "saves" where you left off. If you don't feel like reading--just listening--there is a nice, well-moderated voice willing to take over . . .

  • Perfect

    by Gratef0l

    I have trouble reading it on my own but the audiobook is so interesting and there's so many options! If more ppl got this app then I'm sure more than 2% of Christians would read their bible everyday (or hear).... Those are the current stats :o

  • Great resource

    by Mhinson72

    I love to use this app as a resource to my Bible study time. Helps a lot to hear someone pronounce the Old Testament names than trying to figure them out on your own.

  • Probably the best bible app I've ever used.

    by EvanSantiago

    I've used many bible apps and this one is by far one of the best. The combination between the voices and dramatic background music, are amazing. Apart from having a really intuitive app, their website is really cool too!

  • Drama version is incredible !!!

    by Disgusted in Denison Texas

    Makes me feel like I am experiencing the time of the event. Also it seems like as i listen, it is personalized, like I have a tutor. I totally love this app! God Bless those who helped create it !

  • Best Bible app ever

    by Andnfckfndjfnb

    I'm taking a New Testament greek class and the audio feature will help a lot for memorization. I really like this app and would recommend it for anyone trying to learn a different language.

  • Great app..... I have a question

    by Purple monkey 2141

    It's a great app in still in my early teens and I find this app amazing but how do you get the female speaker?
